What we're about

Calling all board game lovers! Whether you're a seasoned gamer or just interested in finding out more about the board game hobby, we'd love to have you join us. We play everything from Euros to deck builders to strategy games to the occasional party game. Examples of games that have hit our tables: Scythe, Codenames, Caylus, Settlers of Catan, Century, Great Western Trail, and Blood Rage. We welcome both new and experienced gamers and we bring a large variety of games each week. And if you don't know how to play, don't worry--we are always happy to teach!

Additional game nights, coming soon!

Game Day at HEGames

Needs a location

COVID WARNINGS - We have sanitary, cleaned regularly tables for play that are well apart from the next for open play. We are currently limiting the play area to 12 people, so please sign up to let us know you are locking in your seat! Masks are required. Thank you for understanding!

Each week we meet at HEGames in McHenry to play board games! We mostly play newer games and all experience levels are welcome! There are usually around 20 of us, so multiple games will be going on.

Bring your own games, or feel free to utilize our extensive demo library!

If it's your first time, be sure to let someone know!

Recent games to hit the table: Scythe, On Tour, Thurns and Taxis, Era, Smash Up, Architects of the West Kingdom, and Suburbia. Don't worry about not knowing how to play; each game is taught beforehand. :)
