What we're about

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:

Settlers of Catan
7 Wonders
Stone Age
Pandemic
Puerto Rico
Carcassonne

John and I own a fairly large game collection, and we are willing to bring MOST games to Meetups (we generally will not bring those that are exceptionally large, long, and/or very rare). You can view our collection here (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/hobbes_inc?own=1&subtype=boardgame&ff=1). If you want us to bring something, just mention it in your RSVP or contact me directly.

Please do not post advertisements (including selling games, conventions, or other events - paid or free) 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.

Protospiel - Chicago

205 Remington Blvd

https://tabletop.events/conventions/protospiel-chicago-2019 (BETH and JOHN are not affiliated with this event - RSVP with Protospiel directly! That's why there are no spots available to RSVP here) If you're a game designer looking to get professional level feedback from other designers, there is no better place to get that feedback. We've had 80 designers attend in each of the last two years (60 in our first year) so you'll have plenty of opportunities to play test your designs throughout the weekend. And the friendships you'll make will last a lifetime. If you're a gamer who likes to try out new things, then Protospiel is the place for you. You'll get to see dozens of new designs in a single weekend. Plus you'll get to shape them before they hit the store shelves or the pages of Kickstarter.
