What we're about

There are plenty of board game meetups at bars, cafes and game stores. The goal of this group is to offer living room game nights for smaller get-togethers.

We welcome anyone interested in friendly game nights, even if you haven’t played any modern board games before. Our only request is you be polite and respectful to everyone.

Anyone is welcome to host their own event, whether you’re looking to play gateway games like Splendor and Carcassonne, or complex Euro games like Terra Mystica and Terraforming Mars.

Remember, space is limited for each event, so don’t feel discouraged if you’re stuck on the waitlist. Hopefully you can make it to the next one, or even host one of your own!

Big Trouble in Little Lakeview Part 2

Jonathan’s Apt

We’re playing Big Trouble in Little China, while listening to the movie soundtrack! It is a super awesome dungeon crawl type co-op game. Lets shake the pillars of heaven and earth! It takes around 2 hours to play, maybe more or less depending on rules explanation. It’s all in the reflexes.

Dojo Kun in Lakeview

Jonathan’s Apt

We’re playing Dojo Kun! A worker placement game about training fighters to battle in two dice combat tournaments. Super cool ⚡️👊🏻 ⚡️ Here is an overview: https://boardgamegeek.com/video/151396/dojo-kun/dojo-kun-board-game-review

Alien: Legendary Encounters

Jonathan’s Apt

April 26th is official Alien Day! (The planet LV-426 is the location of the first two movies) So to celebrate two of the greatest sci-fi movies ever, we’ll be playing Alien: Legendary Encounters! It is a co-op deckbuilding game where we will play through the scenarios of the first two films. We’ll have to use more than harsh language on this bug hunt otherwise it’ll be game over man, game over!

Game of Thrones Board Game

Stephen's House

In honor of the show starting up again I figured it was time to play board game again. I have Mother of Dragons expansion if people are interested, though we don't have to use it. I have played any number of times so I am happy to teach newcomers, and hopefully keep the game moving along quickly. Cat in residence in case of allergies. Note if this date doesn't work for people I am happy to try a different one, I love this game and this IP so lets make this happen shoot me a message with a better time.
