Love to play board games? You will probably LOVE attending one of the many local board game conventions to play your favorite games, learn new games in demo sessions and learning games, compete in tournaments, buy/sell/trade your games and those of other gamers, join designers creating and polishing the next generation of games, and participate in special events geared towards gamers. Meetups include the four Congress of Gamers conventions, WashingCon, PrezCon, BFGCon, Winter Offensive, and GCOM's EuroQuest, Game Days, Picnic, and Winter Game Fest conventions. Of course, there are many more events in the DMV with at least some board game activity. The ones in this Meetup group are just those with a focus on board games.
