Ever walk into a boardgaming event and feel intimidated or overwhelmed? That's why we created this group.
Social Boardgaming hosts meetup events with an emphasis on the social benefits and pleasures of boardgaming. We work hard to make sure that every member has a great time — a welcoming and positive experience that'll bring you back for more. Most importantly, we take particular care to ensure that novice members receive a structured and gentle introduction to the hobby.
** WE BELIEVE IN THE COMMUNITY-BUILDING POWER OF BOARDGAMES **
== Why boardgames? == Boardgames *literally* provide rules of engagement in a social setting. Because of this property, they enable everyone to interact on an equal footing — regardless of age, social standing, gender, sexual orientation, political and religious leanings, and almost anything else you care to name. While we interact through a boardgame, we inevitably begin to bridge the gaps that separate us in daily life. We see what we have in common, more than how we differ, and we unavoidably weave the connections that build a community. *That* is the real power of boardgames.
== In days of old... == When you think of boardgames, do Monopoly, Risk, and Sorry spring to mind? Do you see boardgames as "boring" or "for kids"? If so, you may be surprised. For an entertaining rebuttal of these perceptions, have a look at this video ( http://y2u.be/dkdHbmwXV04 ).
