What we're about

Do you like to play card and board games, but over the years your friends and family have learned your tricks and tells? Well, come on out to one of our events This Meetup group is intended for adult gamers who are looking to meet other players in the Southwest metro area. We don't play to win;We play for fun. Though winning is a nice bonus.

We host open game night events twice a week at breweries and coffee shops. Our collection of games spans the classics(Clue, Monopoly.), the modern classics(Settlers of Catan, Werewolf..) and those that are just silly fun(Munchkin, Red Dragon Inn..).

This is still in its testing phase so the times and locations will vary. As such, If you have any suggestions on times and venues feel free to let me know in the discussions section.

Thank you.

Saturday Board Gaming at The Forge

Location visible to members

This is an ongoing Saturday board gaming meetup, at The Forge in Chaska!
Whether you are experienced with the hobby, or just discovering modern hobby board gaming, we would love to game with you and have fun together in an inclusive and family friendly atmosphere. The store has a gaming library for people to use for free, and many attendee’s bring games to teach and play with others. Don’t feel pressured having to bring games, but the more the merrier!! Also, if you do bring games, please be prepared to teach them to others.
The Forge is an AMAZING game store and they have snacks and beverages for sale, but also encourage outside food and beverages. (And THANK YOU to everyone who brings snacks to share. Super awesome!!) The Forge has a killer retail section that features every aspect of the gaming hobby, at excellent prices. Roll a D20 at the checkout, and receive that discount off board game retail purchases, because they are awesome like that!!
Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions, and please RSVP as early as you can, so I can keep The Forge aware.

Monday Game Night at Mugshots Coffee Company in West Bloomington, MN

Location visible to members

Welcome to Monday Game Night at Mugshots Coffee Company!

Whether you have been playing board and card games for many years, or you are just starting out with the hobby, we would be thrilled to have you join us for an evening of games and fun!

We usually start the event with a quick game as players arrive. Then, we break off into smaller groups and settle in to play some longer board games (such as Settlers of Catan, Wingspan, or Dominion).

You are not required to bring any games as I will be bringing a big ol' bag of games to play. But, if you would like to bring some of your own games, then you are more than welcome to do so! Just be prepared to teach them to other players.

This event is hosted at Mugshots Coffee Company in West Bloomington. Mugshots offers a variety of delicious beverages as well as tasty snacks, soups, and sandwiches. I encourage you to try some of the amazing items on their menu and help support a local business! Here is a link to their website. https://mugshotscoffeeco.com/

Please RSVP to the event as soon as you can so I can keep Mugshots aware.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me through Meetup.

I hope to see you there!

Wednesday Board Gaming @ Boom Island

Needs a location

If this is your first time joining us, we usually start out with a lighter game while we wait for everyone to arrive, then switch to more involved games (7 Wonders, Hansa, etc). You should be able to find us by looking for the stack of board games. Feel free to bring any you would like to teach.

Hope to see you there!
