What we're about

Calling all board gamers! Let's get together and play more games!

We meet several times a month, including:

• Game Night, the first Saturday of every month. Drop in anytime from 2pm til midnight ($7.50).
• Wednesdays for some mid-week gaming (Free). Drop by anytime after 1pm. We'll stay open late.
• Saturdays for scheduled Learn to Play and other events, plus Free Open Gaming.
• Game Auctions.

Please note that our Meetup RSVPs do not reflect our actual turn-out at events. There are usually 20 to 30 people at Game Night. Wednesdays are light: less than 10 gamers. Saturdays are hit & miss - we never know how many people will drop by or when.

Here Be Books & Games has been hosting monthly Game Nights since 2007. We maintain a large, current demo game library (400+ games). Tina writes monthly game reviews - available on The Glass Meeple - and in our newsletter.

Want to learn to play a game? Drop by the store anytime and Tina and/or Tim will happily teach you how to play a game... or two.

Store hours: Tuesday & Wednesday 1pm to 7pm
Friday & Saturday 11 am to 7 pm
