What we're about

Public Group

We are a group of Decatur area game players, looking to Meetup with other gamers.

We host several "official" Meetups per month (consult the Calendar (http://www.decaturgamers.com/calendar/)). Everyone is welcome to attend these "Open Game Nights," we will have games available for you to try, or you can bring your own to share!

Most of our events are family-friendly (we'll let you know in advance if it's not!), so bring the spouse, kids, mom & dad - whomever likes to play games!

DON'T BE SHY! Even if you have no idea how to play a game we're playing, just let us know - we are happy to teach you!

We're friendly, easy to get along with, and fun! Join us!
