What we're about

Calling all Investigators!

FYI - All members can host events! I encourage you to host as many as you like whether they are gaming and/or non-gaming social gatherings.

If you are interested in hosting events, please let me know so I can give you Event Organizer status. This will open up the event editing options to give you more control over your event postings.

The Denver Lovecraftian Gaming Society is a meetup group for people who appreciate Lovecraftian and mythos inspired style horror and mystery that also like to play tabletop roleplaying games and/or play board games, and get to know fellow gamers over coffee, drinks, food, movies, etc.

There are a number of great games based in the Cthulhu Mythos: The Call of Cthulhu RPG by Chaosium; Trail of Cthulhu RPG by Pelgrane Press; Achtung Cthulhu! RPG from Modiphius; Arkham Horror and Mansions of Madness board games, etc.

The goal of this group is to build a community of gamers that not only want to meet and play RPG's and board games, but also want to get to know fellow gamers. So there will also be casual meet and greets where members can gather to see new faces, see longtime members, or just want a fun meetup in a non-gaming environment over drinks, coffee, or whatever. Any member is welcome to host non-gaming social events!

While everyone here is a fan, to some degree, of Mythos and Lovecraftian related games and fiction, this group does not just have to be about those particular games. If you want to post a gaming event, feel free to post whatever RPG or board game you like. We all have a passion or appreciation for the Mythos but there is no need to limit ourselves to just those Cthulhu/Mythos specific RPG's and board games.

When I gamed frequently back in the 1990's I used to blend some mythos/cosmic horror and mystery inspired themes and plotlines into my RPG campaigns from other game systems like D&D and White Wolf's World of Darkness series. So if you are running a game or campaign that may be D&D, Pathfinder, WoD game series, Cyberpunk, Warhammer, Ars Magica, or a gaslight, steampunk, pulp, or dieselpunk themed game or whatever - feel free to post it.

Reminder: Posting events is open to all members, so we are looking for people interested in hosting - whether that is a casual meetup in a non-gaming environment over coffee or drinks or if you have a game or campaign to run. If you are having technical issues with posting an event in this group or you plan to host several events, I can make you an Event Organizer so that you have the site permissions for controlling the details of your events.

And another reminder for those attending events: If you RSVP to an event and cannot make it we understand, but please cancel your RSVP or send a message to the event host. We all understand that life happens and other things can get in the way. But not showing up to an event without any notice is not respectful to the people that have put in their time and effort to host the events - especially if there is a limited number of seats at the event. If you sign up for an event put it on your smart phone calendar with a reminder, and if something comes up that keeps you from attending, no one is going to be offended if you have to cancel.

Thank you,

Craig - Group Organizer

Friday Bi-weekly Game Night

6466 S Cody Way

[I have made slight changes so please read the ENTIRE description prior to registering. - Sumit] What better way to relax after the work week than with great games and good friends? This is an open board gaming group for people that love to play. All experience levels welcome and we’re happy to have and teach new players. Bring your favorite board games to share or just drop in and play one of the games someone else brings each time. I also have a decent variety of board games spanning various genres and styles. The games we play will vary from week to week and you do not have to bring a game to play. We will have plenty of choices. This group meets at my house. I have comfortable game areas with several large tables that can accommodate a decent number of players plus our own dedicated mini-fridge to keep drinks cold. Everyone is welcome. Directions will be sent to everyone registered so please register so we have an accurate head count. Arrive any time after 6:30pm. We’ll decide what to play and begin around 7pm. Please be courteous and bring snacks or drinks to share with others. No hard stop time. We will stop when the games are done or we pass out. Whichever comes first. Registration closes at 4pm day of the event so we can determine number of players to pick the board game(s). Some of my non-Meetup friends also attend frequently so there are ALWAYS more players than registered, but preregistration is still appreciated. Message me if you do not get my address close to game time! NOTE: Due to the inconsideration of a select few "no shows", if you RSVP but do not attend twice, you will banned from attending this group.

Arkham Horror 3rd ed.

Enchanted Grounds

"How can I speak of what I saw that night? What words could possibly capture the grotesqueries I was confronted with? All of Arkham is in danger! All of the world is in danger! Our only hope lies with a small group of my acquaintances. Educated, doughty, and unflinching in their willingness to confront the forces of darkness." This is our monthly Arkham Horror game at Enchanted Grounds. Players of all experience levels are welcome. If you have a preference for which scenario/old one we play, post it in the comments.
