What we're about

The popularity of the Nintendo Switch has revitalized local gaming communities. Now that we have an enormous library of multiplayer games, let's get together to play them. We are a Sunday afternoon Meetup group for Nintendo Switch gamers. Our events are mostly held in the DC Metro area, though we do have occasionally events a short drive away.

Depending on the number of people attending any given Meetup, we'll most likely be playing multiple games. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Splatoon 2 are among our most popular but you'll find Rocket League, Puyo Puyo Tetris, Arms, and other games in the ever-growing list being played as well.

If you have a game you'd like to play, bring it with you and you'll surely find someone would be willing to give it a shot

Join the DMV Nintendo Switch Local Gaming Group to meet like-minded people to play games with!

Rules of Conduct

1. You don’t have to like everyone but you have to be kind to everyone.

As with any group of people, you’ll click with some people and others might just get on your nerves. This doesn’t excuse any rude behavior though. We’re all here to meet new people and have fun and we should all be doing our part in making everyone feel welcome. Do Nintendo proud.

2. Keep all conversations (and actions) PG-13.

If you drop a couple expletives under your breath here or there, no one’s going to make a fuss. If you start shouting them, telling others what you’ll be doing with their mothers, or making obscene gestures, we’re going to have problems.

3. Share the Joy-Con.

There's a chance that not everyone who attends will own a Switch. Please be willing to share a Joy-Con with other attendees and let them have a turn.

4. Keep the group spoiler-free.

Yes, we're all excited about Zelda but keep in mind that others may not have had as much playtime as you have. Please keep all gaming discussions spoiler-free to respect others who enjoy gaming as much as you do.
