What we're about
We gather every Wednesday night (rain or shine, lightning or snow) at 7:15 pm, currently alternating between Original Pattern Brewing and Ghost Town Brewery in Oakland. We're a fantastic (emphasis on fantastic) gang of Table Toppers with interests in table top (woo hoo), board, card, dice, role playing, chance, skill, luck and other games that encourage conversation, critical thinking and laughter!
Although we have nothing against any specific game or type of game (lets face it, games are games because they're fun) we try to avoid games that run longer than 45 minutes or take over an hour and a half to explain. This does not mean "no games over an hour" or anything like that, just that we want to play as many games as possible with as many people as possible.
We also try to avoid games that are too exclusive in type like Poke'mon, Magic The Gathering, Warhammer, D&D, etc. Three games we definitely try to avoid are Settlers of Catan, Monopoly and Cards Against Humanity.
We hope this does not discourage anyone from coming and joining in on the fun. Other than that, we encourage new games in all forms! Bring any game you are able to teach or one even one you're willing to learn, new and old. Also, if you have a game you may be developing, bring it on by for some feedback and test plays.
Enough jibber jabber. Lets get together, have some beers, laugh it up and play some games!
