This is a group for people wanting to learn and play modern strategy board games such as Puerto Rico, 7 Wonders, Power Grid, Agricola, Dominion, Terraforming Mars, The Castles of Burgundy, Ethnos, Gizmos, Space Base, Azul, Splendor, Scepter of Zavandor, and Lords of Waterdeep to name a few. We are always interested in trying new games and we like teaching newcomers too. So, whether you are an experienced gamer or a curious newcomer, you are welcome to join us.
In this Meetup group, we do not play party games or classic board games such as Rummikub, Scrabble, Uno, Phase 10, Sequence, Monopoly, Mexican Train or Qwirkle; however, we have another Meetup group just for those types of games and with other fun activities for you to join called, "Fun on a Budget": https://www.meetup.com/DenverFunOnA-Budget/
Most of our events are in Thornton but anyone can join us if you are willing to make the trip. We have gamers from as far away as Boulder and Longmont join us regularly.
Join us for an evening of online gaming! We mostly play games on Board Game Arena, but also play games on a variety of other sites (Codenames, Mattle, etc.). We also have a few DIY games played using screen share such as Power Grid, Azul, and Small World.
Signing up for BGA in advance is helpful, but not required. The signup process is quick, easy, and free. The link to sign up for Board Game Arena is: https://en.boardgamearena.com
We use Zoom to videoconference during the event. If enough people show up, we will use breakout rooms to form multiple tables.
