What we're about

The Manhattan Games Center is a new and exciting venue for like minded games players to meet and have fun in a clean, safe environment with good lighting.

This is an open call to meet up at our space for almost anything game related. Do you run another gaming Meetup that needs a good reliable and affordable space in Manhattan? Do you just want a place to come play games with friends? Come play with us. We have enough space for 100 people to play games at the same time, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The club will have light refreshments from 6pm - 9pm including crudites with dip, cheese and crackers and fresh fruit. Cake, cookies, coffee, tea, soft drinks and wine are also included. Feel free to BYO food and/or beverage.

Evening session and Refreshment fee - $20 cash only. We do accept credit cards.

Please RSVP directly to me at info@nybackgammon.com or (408) 529-6769 for individual event nights so that we may plan accordingly. See our calendar for the daily schedule: https://www.meetup.com/Manhattan-Games-Center/events/calendar/

Free on-street parking, right in front of the building, starts at 6:00 pm. There is metered parking all-day until 7:00 pm. The subway is two blocks away.

If you would like to bring your group or Meetup to any of these nights let me know. I can be reached at info@nybackgammon.com or (408) 529-6769.
