What we're about


NonTraditional Board Games (or NTBoardGames for short) is a group for people to come together, play board games, have fun, and meet new friends. We meet at least twice a month at the Silver Spring Library in downtown Silver Spring, MD.

There's nothing wrong with Monopoly or Scattergories, but this group is focused on games you might've not heard before. Some of the games you can expect to play are Lords of Xidit, Tortuga 1667, King of Tokyo, Pandemic, Eldritch Horror, and many more.

If you want to connect with NTBoardGames (you can't make it to events or because why not?), we have a Facebook Page/Group, a website ( with articles & videos on board games, a podcast with a variety of content including a weekly RPG Drama (every Friday), and social media accounts (@NTBoardGames everywhere!) So there's plenty of ways to join us for some fun.

Let's Play Some Games!
