Casual Board Gamers Meetup
IMPORTANT: This page is to attract additional gamers in other locations -- most people RSVP to "BOARD GAME NIGHT WITH FRIENDS!" which is on our main page which can be found here: We are a laid back group who enjoy everything from light gateway games to heavy brain burners. Come ready to laugh and have a good time, make new friends and not compete to the death. You can find us playing games like Codenames, Blood Rage, Harry Potter, Dead of Winter, Avalon, Castles of Burgundy, Race for the Galaxy, Century Spice Road, Skull, Vinhos, Orleans, and Istanbul. Don't worry if those don't sound familiar -- we've taught HUNDREDS of new gamers how to play over the years! Each of our regulars bring lots of games to choose from and you're welcome to bring your own. You can also follow our host, David, on Instagram (@bocksgames) to see what he's bringing each week. We meet in Bennigan's Irish Pub. The food is very good and reasonably priced, if you're hungry. It is attached to the Holiday Inn just north of I-90 on Route 31 in Elgin, so if you see the Holiday Inn you're there. Just ask the host where we're seated. We look forward to meeting you!
