Every Thursday is Game Night at Dallas Games Marathon! Open 6pm to Midnight. Free Entry for DGM Members. $5 for Visitors (First Visit is Free!) DGM is board game club in Plano that hosts tabletop gaming events, a thousand games to share, a marketplace for new and used games, and rentals for our a 4,200 sqft venue. The 3rd weekend of each month is Marathon Gaming, and every Thursday is Open Play (except Thanksgiving and during BGG.con) We normally have 20-60 people come on Thursdays who aren't on Meetup, so this event page is simply an invite to welcome new players. Bring your own games, or play anything from our library shelves (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/DGM%20Library). Bring your own food and non-alcoholic beverages, or we have water/soda/chips/candy for sale in the kitchen. Take a snack break, or ask your game's owner if it's ok to have food/drinks on the game table. We tend to play tabletop board games, euro/strategy games, and party games; but all kinds are welcome. We are family-friendly, but children should be responsible and enjoyable to play among adults. (Sunday on Marathon weekend is best for kids.) LOCATION: We are located at 930 West Parker Rd, tucked in a strip mall, right behind Shipley Donuts.

You'll see our sticker on the doors! WHEN YOU ARRIVE... Usually the person at the front desk is off playing a game nearby, so if you come in and feel lost, look for anyone wearing a name badge, or simply walk up to the nearest table and say, "Hi guys, I'm new here. Who do I talk to?" Since our venue is run entirely by volunteers, someone within earshot should be able to welcome you! :-) Ask for a tour, or feel free to wander the two big game rooms, library hallways, or kitchen and bathrooms in back. Mingle to find a game, or we have special blue signs that say "PLAYERS WANTED!" Sit with one of these at your table, set up your favorite game, and someone will come talk to you in no time. You can also ask anyone wearing a name badge lanyard to help you find players. LEARN MORE...
