What we're about

Like playing modern board or card games? This is the group for you!

***COVID Update: ***Due to the close-contact nature of gaming, and following recommendations from the Provincial Medical Officers of Health, we have temporarily suspended in-person meetups at community locations. Events held at external locations occur only at the discretion of the venue organizers under the Restrictions Exemption Program.

Whether you’ve just tried Wingspan, regularly take a Ticket to Ride or are just looking for something a bit different than Clue, Monopoly or Risk, our meetups welcome all gamers. Join us online!

At our in-person meetups you can play games across a wide selection of themes and interests; as a family, in a group or head to head. You can try one of this year’s nominees for the internationally recognized Games of the Year. Or join in playing many of the games from BoardGameGeek’s hot lists including casual/ family games and strategy games.  
You can bring along a favourite game, or use the comments field to request a game you’d like to play.  Another attendee may be able to bring and/or teach.  Most of our events are presented by Game Hosts from our annual Convention FallCon (www.Fallcon.com). Hosts can help match you with great games and find other players. Format is drop-in but start times for games varies.

Location visible to members

Join us every second Friday night from 7-9 (ish) pm, for a fun-filled evening of board games online with friends, old and new! Everyone is welcome! We will have people willing to host and teach games. Make sure to RSVP so we know how many people will join, and remember, if you can’t make it, cancel your RSVP or shoot us off a message.

We will be using the following platforms:
Discord plus a Microphone for chatting. (https://discord.com) FREE
A Board Game Arena account (https://boardgamearena.com) FREE

Join us in the "Looking For Players" channel in our Discord server (https://discord.gg/ECfdEehHKD) on Friday. If there is a game you'd like to play, teach or learn, pop it in the comments (or in the General Chat channel on Discord).

Hope to see you there!

Note:
Although the game choice isn't necessarily limited to Board Game Arena, we do recommend sticking with Board Game Arena unless all game participants have experience with another platform and know that their tech can support both the gameplay and the voice chat.

Monday Night Board Games at The Sentry Box!

Needs a location

Monday Night Games is back!

IMPORTANT CHANGES:

With the removal of the REP we no longer need to check for vaccination status and we have therefore removed the need to pre-register for this event and check in downstairs before playing.

Drop-in attendance is now possible again.

Masks are no longer required (but are encouraged).

Blood on the Clocktower at The Sentry Box

Needs a location

Greetings, townsfolk of Ravenswood Bluff!

It’s time for another round of Blood on the Clocktower at The Sentry Box! All are welcome to join, Blood on the Clocktower is an inclusive game that can accommodate players of all ability and skill levels.

What is Blood on the Clocktower, you ask? Blood on the Clocktower is a supernatural murder mystery social deduction game for between 8 to 20 players. Players might take on the role of a good townsfolk or outsider, trying to find and execute the evil demon. Or, players may be the evil demon themselves, or one of the demon's minions, tasked with protecting the demon.

What makes this game stand apart from other social deduction games?

  • All players are in it for the entire game, staying on as influential ghosts even if their characters die! In Blood on the Clocktower, death is not the end.
  • If you arrive late to a game, you can enter after it's started as a powerful Traveler character with unusual talents and questionable allegiances.
  • Every player has their own character, each with their own special ability. No two games are ever alike!
  • Drunkenness, madness, and the odd poisoning are common. With these unique features you can never trust anyone completely, not even yourself.

If you would like to brush up on the rules before the game, check out this great video from the Pandemonium Institute: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-aZP47Nm9g

If we can't meet the minimum player count, don't worry! Sentry Box is still running regular Monday night board games that are open to all, so we can always play some other games as a fall-back plan.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
