What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
We are a group of people who like to get together on Thursday nights (at IHOP) and on Sunday afternoons at Parkway Place mall food court to socialize over boardgames. We play a wide variety of games so there is sure to be one to suit everyone's taste. Just look at our games played discussions. Most games can be taught in about 5 minutes so everyone can join in the fun without feeling lost for long. Come join us, you'll be glad you did. Some of us arrive at 5:30 for pre-game meals. Some of us eat during a game. Some of us arrive at 7:00 or 8:00. Games are played at multiple tables with varying game play durations so you should be able to join in a game after a short wait no matter when you arrive. Although people start to leave after 9:00, some people have been known to play past midnight. Unfortunately, most people do not RSVP so it is not a good indicator of the number of people who will actually show up at a meetup. Look at the past meetups for a better indicator of the number of people who will attend.
We meet at the Depot in Cullman at 7:00 PM each week to play a diverse mix of board games and card games. There is no admission fee for attendees, but please consider supporting our host by buying meals, drinks or snacks. We are a very friendly and open group and invite new players to join. We offer a wide variety of games, but play mostly Euro-style games. We are very patient with new gamers and will take the time to explain and teach games to anyone willing to learn. If you would like to know of the types of games we typically play, feel free to browse through the game libraries of some members: Member Game List (http://www.meetup.com/theBBG/messages/boards/thread/21978032). If you have any questions, then feel free to post a comment and one of the group organizers will respond. Visit us on Meetup (http://www.meetup.com/theBBG/) or Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/279755868776668/).

• What we'll do Its board game night at Lucky Dice! New players welcome. Don't worry if you don't know how to play we will teach you. Bring your games you want to play or play one of ours.
