What we're about
Please Read Carefully and if you choose to join us, answer the introductory questions. If we don't know you from another group, We will probably decline a membership request So please take the few minutes it takes to fill out a decent introduction. A major qualifier for this meet up is reliability. We take it seriously and if you are in the habit of committing to a game and then not showing up, everyone is affected. Communication is important. 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.
So that being said; Welcome to EGGS
Our Motto: Good for Breakfast, Good for Lunch, Better for Dinner.
The mission of this group is to connect experienced Strategy Board Game Enthusiasts all across South Eastern Virginia 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 anywhere from 3 to 10 hours or more 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, Diplomacy, Eclipse, History of the World, Imperial, Age of Industry, REX, Hannibal, Here I Stand, and Dominant Species, to name a few. Our Organizers are 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" or "Epic Board Games" 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.
