** This group on pause until COVID-19 safety measurements easily allow for 50-100 person events **
We play various strategy boardgames, also called "Eurogames" or "designer games". If you aren't familiar with that terminology, you may recognize a few of the most popular titles, like Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne, Dominion, Ticket to Ride, 7 Wonders, Puerto Rico, Agricola, Ra, and Race for the Galaxy. We are extremely happy to have beginners! Whether you are new to our group, or new to Euro games (or both!), we will help you to find a game that you will enjoy :)
You'll have a broad choice of games to learn and play because several members usually bring lots of different types of games ranging from "light and frothy" to "heavy and thoughtful", with many choices in between. Most members are very happy to teach you any game you want to learn. If you wish to bring a game, please feel free! Keep in mind that generally games are open to everyone to use, so only bring copies that you feel comfortable sharing with others.
We will ALWAYS bring the following "core" games for players to use:
Please do not post advertisements for conventions or other events (paid or free) or commercial game sales (i.e. Kickstarter, fundraisers, etc.) on this site without contacting us first. Failure to contact either Beth or John before the posting is up will result in its deletion. Beth and John hold the right to make a final decision if a posting qualifies as an advertisement. It is permissible to post selling and/or trading of games between Meetup members.
Inclusion and Discrimination:
We strive as both board gamers and Meetup hosts on creating a welcoming environment to anyone who wants to experience a day of tabletop games. We know that games can sometimes be frustrating, but no one should feel unwelcome, unwanted, or uncomfortable. If you feel like you like a fellow boardgamers is being disrespectful or discriminatory, please speak to Beth or John in person or private message us through Meetup to discuss it. We do not tolerate ANY flavors of discrimination. Please help us create a safe space to trade, negotiate, bluff, and auction, and remember, it's just a game!
