What we're about

*** COVID UPDATE ***

We are fielding many questions from people wondering when we will have in-person gaming again. For now, we are leaving it up to individual event organizers (of which we have about 15 currently) whether they want to host in their own homes, find indoor or outdoor venues, or otherwise put on in-person events. There aren't currently too many choosing to do this, but as events are created you'll see them here. If you have an idea for an in-person event and would like to be added to the organizer roster, message us and tell us about it.

In the meantime, here are some other groups and events you might like to check out: https://www.meetup.com/gamenightatofftherails/

******************************

Meet nearby Boardgame players! Most of our meetups are centered in the Peninsula and South Bay, but we have events in other locations, too, so check out the list. We tend to play games like Settlers of Catan, Carcassone, Puerto Rico, and others of that style. All ages and skills are welcome—the goal is to have fun. Have a game you want try, bring it along! Have an old favorite, but don't know anyone to play, bring it too!

Is there a type of game or group you're interested in, but don't see (family game day, old-style board games, chess/backgammon/go, party games, etc)? Send the organizers a message. Always willing to add more event organizers to host.

Wednesday Games NOT at Happy Donut (VIRTUAL)

Online event

Happy Donuts goes virtual! We are going to do this on Discord. When you RSVP you'll get a link you can use to connect to the Bay Area Board Gamers. It doesn't expire, time-wise, but is limited to 100 uses. If it ends up not working for you let me know.

We can use Discord as a general place to gather and try to arrange games. In addition we are setting up this regular game night/time.

If you don't have a Discord account already, you'll need to set one up after you click the link. Let me know if you need guidance with that. In addition, you'll probably want to join one or more of the various online gaming platforms like Board Game Arena, Tabletopia, or Tabletop Simulator (which you can purchase from Steam).

The evening of the event, once in the Bay Area Board Gamers Discord we generally gather in the General Voice Channel to sort out who wants to play what game. "See" you there!
