What we're about

What makes this group different? Anyone can become an event organizer of this group and host game sessions - either specific games or open gaming sessions - in the Seattle area. This includes Seattle proper as well as (roughly) locations within 30 minutes drive from downtown Seattle. If you are interested, please contact the group organizer.

Because of our openness to anyone who wants to organize events, we aim to have a wide range of gaming events, from open game sessions to specific games of all types. We play all types of boardgames, focusing on "Euros" (ranging from lighter game such as Settlers of Catan, Lords of Waterdeep to more complex games). We also play thematic games (e.g. Battlestar Galactica), card games, and party and social games. Almost anything is possible - we are member and organizer driven - just let us know!

Upcoming events (4+)

Play Steam, Age of Steam, or Railways of the World -- You Choose

These are three of the best railroad strategy games. Each involves building a network and shipping goods while staving off bankruptcy. Only Age of Steam includes a turn-order auction every round. All include the same core mechanics, are brilliantly designed and have been enduringly popular, so much so that each has many, many scenarios.

In your response answer the event question to rank order your preferences. I'll message everyone who participates Friday evening with an update.

I'll teach whichever game we select.

El Grande -- part of let's play mid-weight strategy games

The Missing Piece

The enduringly popular El Grande is an easy to learn area control game set in Renaissance Spain. Players distribute their caballeros in regions seeking influence. It's a very fluid game with interesting multi-player effects.

I'll teach, and you can learn yourself at https://www.boardgamegeek.com/video/112791/el-grande/shut-sit-down-teaches-how-play-el-grande.

If Wednesday evening is a good time, I'd like to start a weekly series of mid-weight strategy games. Examples include Pandemic, Castles of Burgundy, 7 Wonders, 7 Wonders Duel, Wingspan, Ra, Modern Art, Samurai, Catan, Tikal, Acquire, Lords of Waterdeep, Blockers, German Railways, Medici, Chicago Express, Azul, Attica, and London (2nd edition). For the most part, these are games with BGG weights between 2.0 and 3.0 (El Grande is 3.05).

If El Grande fills-up, please put yourself on the waiting list. We can probably schedule another mid-weight game.
