What we're about
This group is dedicated to facilitating tabletop gaming (namely, role-playing games and miniatures games) for tabletop (i.e. "pen and paper") gamers in and around Santa Fe, New Mexico. Rank amateurs and old hands alike are welcome. Please feel free to use our calendar to set up meetups, or simply browse the member list to contact like-minded gamers. Also, don't be shy about advertising for any game from the most popular to the most obscure, or about setting up your own campaign and putting out an invite. If the game centers on gathering 'round a table to roll dice (funny-shaped or otherwise), eat snacks, laugh, and have a good time, it is welcome here!
Board games are certainly not excluded, but please note there is another Meetup here in town (http://www.meetup.com/sfgamers/) specifically dedicated to those types of games.
If you're totally new to tabletop gaming, here are a couple helpful links to get you started:

An introduction to miniatures gaming (http://www.wtj.com/games/articles/gaming_101/index.htm) and an interesting video about the hobby featuring Luke Crane of Burning Wheel fame (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1DFsEQk7X4)
