What we're about

This meet-up hosts family-friendly board game nights for those in East Cambridge and beyond. The fact that it's an inclusive group made up of singles as well as parents (with kids) makes it unique in the Greater Boston area.

Trinity Cambridge Church (www.trinitycambridge.com) sponsors our meet-up as a way to serve the Cambridge community, and Ernesto's Pizzeria generously donates pizza for our meet-ups. We meet at the Robert W. Healy Public Safety Facility in Cambridge, which is a short walk from the Red Line Kendall/MIT Station and the Green Line Lechmere Station.

We gather every other week on Saturdays from 6-9pm. We specialize in Euro-style tabletop games of medium complexity. Limited quantity of pizza (5 large pies) is available for everyone on a first-come first-served basis. We break into groups to play various strategy games (e.g. Dominion, Settlers of Catan, Avalon, Carcassone, Hanabi, Isle of Skye, Ticket to Ride, Code Names, Bonanza, etc.).

We also have some games that are more suitable for children (e.g. Dixit, Qwirkle, Candy Land, Schutes and Ladders, Dixit, Qwirkle, as well as card games like Go Fish, Dinosaur Memory, Crazy 8s, Old Maid, Animal Rummy, etc.)

Gaming enthusiasts of all ages are welcome to join.

Due to limited space, you must RSVP and inform us of how many people are in your party. For this reason, we ask that you be considerate of others by RSVP'ing only if you are likely to attend. This also allows us to alert you in the event that the meet-up is cancelled.

We welcome beginners and advanced players, and you are invited to bring your own favorite games as well.
