Please Read Carefully and if you choose to join us, answer the introductory questions. If we don't know you from our other group or recommended by a member, We may decline a membership request So please take the few minutes it takes to fill out a decent introduction. One thing we look for is reliability. If you are in the habit of committing to a game event and then not showing up, everyone is affected. Communication is important and by keeping membership low we hope to enjoy the gaming experience more by playing with the same people and getting to know each other and individual styles of play better.
For those who prefer a more casual and less structured and committed experience, please take a look at our open group, Williamsburg Board Game Enthusiasts. Everyone is welcome.
Good for Breakfast, Good for Lunch, Better with Dinner.
The mission of this group is to connect Board Game Enthusiasts on the Virginia Peninsula from Hampton Roads to Richmond that are fans of tabletop board games with deeper themes and more complex and engaging strategies. These games generally take the extra commitment of time and might require more than a few hours to play. They may have themes of War, History, Politics , Fantasy/Science Fiction or Economics. Some examples of the games we have played are: Twilight Imperium, Civilization, 18XX and other Railroad Games, Eclipse, History of the World, Imperial, Age of Industry, REX, Hannibal, Here I Stand, and Dominant Species, and other GMT titles to name a few. Our Organizers are relatively experienced gamers and enjoy teaching new people who are willing to make the commitment to learn a particular game and are not afraid of serious competition or put off by friendly conflict. If You are a member of the groups "The Williamsburg Board Game Enthusiasts" then you already know us. We are the same Organizers and co-organizers in a smaller, more focused special interest group that are a bit less casual about our gaming. Our meetups will usually feature a single pre-chosen game or two with a much smaller, often set number of guests. We welcome and encourage any one to propose and host a Game and our organizers are here to help you use the site for that purpose. Have fun fellow gamers.
