What we're about

We provide a welcoming group and location for adults to meet and play modern board games. Thematic games, Strategy games, Euro's, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Designer, Cooperative, Party, and Gateway games all hit the tables.

You don’t need to know the games to play! Members who bring games are willing to teach them.

People of ALL races, ethnicities, political orientations, and religions are welcome here. We just want to meet great people, make new friends, and play games!

Please note: This group is for adults. Responsible respectful adult behavior is expected (and required) from all attendees. Childish behavior is not acceptable, nor is expecting adults in attendance to "tone it down" for children or childish sensibilities.

Prudent Tuesday Night Socially Distant Gaming

Online event

Well, normally, ages ago in pre COVID-19 times, we'd play games weekly at Corbett center. And, normally, Pandemic is a hugely successful co-op game, not a reality.

So the new norm for the duration is we'll meet up on discord (discord.com) and then discuss what online game(s) we'll play on what venue(s).

I'll update the discord link with a current link weekly, typically Monday night before every Tuesday.....

boardgamearena.com and yucata.de are likely sites, so having an account there ahead of time is probably a good idea

horsepaste.com is a very good, very utilitarian implementation of Codenames in a browser

We have infrequently played games on Table Top Simulator on Steam

---- UPDATE: DETAILS DETAILS DETAILS DETAILS DETAILS

Here's a bit more detail on all the bits since we're "all online" for the foreseeable future:

First: Discord
Discord is an American VoIP, instant messaging and digital distribution platform designed for creating communities. [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discord_(software) ]
Discord can be accessed by apps on many devices or via a browser.
Discord requires a free account be set up.

There is a dedicated "server" on Discord mostly for Las Cruces Board Gaming, it's name is "D's Mostly Cruces Board Gaming"
On that server, there are dedicated "channels", both text ("text-general-gaming") and voice ("Board Game 1 - the default starting place - let's talk!!" ) for boardgaming. The voice channels support video too, but generally we stick to just audio.
Initially, you need to follow the link in the Meetup location to get access to the server and the channels. Then once you're in , you can just come back.

Discord is THE hub where we meet, and both text and voice channels are used. You COULD get by with one or the other channel, but it would hinder communications, and be a PITA for everyone.

Second: Board Game Arena
Board Game Arena (BGA) is an online board games platform. [ https://boardgamearena.com/join?aboutmode ]
BGA is accessed via a browser on any device . (That said, screen real estate directly impacts your playing experience)
BGA requires a free account to be set up.

We tend to play a lot of games at BGA because: there are good games there, they are pretty, and BGA supports a "real time" gaming mode.
BGA games frequently played include:
Dice Forge
Kingdomino
6 nimmt!
7 Wonders
Welcome To
Roll for the Galaxy
Love Letter
Alhambra
Rallyman: GT
Saboteur
Incan Gold
Kingdom Builder
Sushi Go!
Carcassonne
Battle Sheep
Colt Express
Stone Age
