What we're about

We're a welcoming group of fellow enthusiasts. This is group is exclusively for those who identify as Male and parent human children (pet parents don't count, sorry!).

We don't typically play mass market board games like clue, monopoly, risk etc. The focus is on modern designer board games (Euros, Ameritrash, etc).

The goal of each meetup is to have a little fun in of your already busy week. We don't have tournaments or are ultra competitive.

If you're used to playing with kids and find yourself pulling your punches on the table, we certainly don't do any of that here! It's all in good fun!

Lastly, if you intend on joining, please respect RSVP'ing. You can RSVP through meetup.com or the meetup app on your phone if you plan on coming to an event. If you have to cancel, it's never a problem, but please make sure you change your RSVP status to "not going". It'll let everyone know we can start on time without waiting for you.

Thank you!

Dad's night out

Fionn MacCool's

Running weekly events for over 5 years now, this group is intended for Dad's who are board game enthusiasts. The group leans a little toward the medium-heavy Euros but there are enough players for other types of games as well. Usually whoever brings the game often teaches it so don't be too concerned about learning a game beforehand. It certainly helps to know it, but not necessary.

The focus of the group is to have fun. It is not intended to be an ultra competitive tournament style kind of group. We typically play different and new games regularly. If you don't have any games to bring, that's not a problem. Most members bring a number of different games. Just show up and we'll make sure you're seated at a table with someone who will teach the game.

Please RSVP to this event if you intend on coming and cancel if you can't make it. It helps us plan the tables out.

Please do your best to support our venue Fionn MacCool's and leave a decent tip. The bar does have non-alcoholic options in addition to a great food menu.

Lastly, since the focus is to have fun, let's do our best to leave the politics at home.
