What we're about
This group is for anyone interested in playing Euro board games. New to the hobby of Euro-board games? Not a problem! All experience levels are welcome.
We primarily play games commonly identified as "Euro-style" or "balanced strategy" games. Some of the most popular games in this genre include Settlers of Catan, Puerto Rico, the Castles of Mad King Ludwig, or Food Chain Magnate. We also frequently play social deduction games like The Resistance or team games like Code Names.
We do NOT play "annihilation" games like Monopoly or Risk. We do NOT play party games like Cards Against Humanity or Taboo. We do NOT play classic games like Chess or Scrabble. Most of the games we play take between 20 minutes and 3 hours.
Membership and dues
We get an enormous number of people who ask to join the MeetUp group and then never make an appearance. We welcome new members, but we generally ask that people attend at least once in order to be accepted as a formal member. Additionally, we regularly remove people who are "members" but are no longer actively attending. Do not take this personally: you can always come back, but we like the size of our MeetUp group to reflect reality and not be inflated to hundreds or thousands of people, like so many other groups.
All active members are kindly asked to pay dues of $10 / year to help cover the cost of running a Meetup Page. We do not expect payment from people new to the club, however, we hope that regular attendees enjoy the MeetUp enough that they want to help support costs associated with maintaining the website and other advertising.
