    42.553288 -83.524696

  • North on Wixom Road from I96. Turn Right on Loon Lake Road. The VFW will be on the lefft about 1/4 mile down. It is the white clubhouse up on the hill. Parking is in the rear of the building. Look for the Meetup Sign in the window for entry.

    !!!BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND – VFW WIXOM!!!

    The VFW Wixom continues to be the most highly requested venue for hosting Day of Games.  There is a bar on site and food will be available for purchase at 3pm and 7pm.  The site has a homey cabin like feel with wood paneled walls, round tables available for gaming, and enough area to take a break and socialize in between games. 

    DIRECTIONS

    The VFW a couple miles north of Flat Land Games further up Wixom road.

    According to Google Maps the VFW is exactly 9 minutes from Flat Land Games.  It is a simple drive north on Wixom Road to Loon Lake Road, then about 1/3 mile down on the north side - it is impossible to miss as it is a large white building that sits atop a very high hill.  The parking lot is directly behind the building.  Please enter via the Bar/Cantina entrance in back.  Look for our Meetup Sign in the window to guide you to the entrance.

    MENU

    Bottled Water/Soda: $1.00; Beer: $2.00; Wine: $3.00; Burger Combo: $5-$6; Pizza: $5.00

    Yes, you heard it!  An added bonus of this venue is the availability of adult beverages if desired. (ID IS REQUIRED - 21 AND OVER) There is a bar on location stocked with beverages and snacks.  Hot Dog or Burger Combos will be available for a late lunch at 3pm and pizza will be ordered mid-evening around 7pm.

    SIGN IN

    When you arrive, be sure to sign in at the entry table, retrieve your name tag, and log your attendance.  There will never be a cover charge or dues assigned for this community.  So when you come to our events, we ask anyone who is able for a voluntary donation to help with expenses like monthly site cost, stationary, and building a community game library.  This is discretionary. 

    FOR THOSE NEW TO OCG

    If you haven’t played board games in a while, there are so many new options available.  OCG has designated Game Coordinators on hand to teach games for the first half of our Meetup starting at noon.  Each Game Coordinator will assess the knowledge of their group and decide on a game that would be appropriate. 

    As a group, OCG has also selected 5 core learning games that provide a good basis of game mechanics you will find in most other games that we play: Ticket to Ride, Pandemic, Splendor, Machi Koro, and 7 Wonders.  These are all great games to start on if you haven’t heard of them yet.  Ask your Game Coordinator about them when you arrive.

    OCG’s regular monthly gaming event takes place every 2nd Saturday of the month, noon – midnight.  We are a novice friendly group that supports teaching games and encouraging interaction with fellow gamers.  Our hope is to build an awareness of the hobby and a friendly community of people that love to play board games.

    Hi all. I'm a maybe. I just moved to Michigan from California last week. I've got a lot going on but I'm anxious to scratch my board game itch.

    I RSVP'd yes just in case. I'll update if my moving truck arrives early and I need to unpack.

    Turns out google maps says it's only 35 or so miles so I'll try and come since it's a long meet up.
