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.

- Saturday Board Gaming at The ForgeThe Forge , Chaska, MN
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 attendees 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 allow outside food and beverages. The Forge has a killer retail section that features every aspect of the gaming hobby, at excellent prices.
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.

- Game Night at Loons LandingLoons Landing Brewery, Savage, MN
This event is at Loons Landing in Savage from 6pm to 9pm(ish).
I will bring name tags (and sharpies).
For those of you who have never attended one of our events, we usually start with some quick(ish) games while we wait for everyone to arrive. Then we split into groups of 3-5 people to play the more time intensive games. There is zero expectation to know how to play these games before-hand. Anyone bringing games should expect to teach others how to play.
I'll have a selection of games and usually other attendees will bring selections from their collections too. If you have a favorite game you would like to introduce us to please bring it!
My game library is available at https://nyhtfury.gitlab.io/games/helgemo-games.html. If there's a title you were interested in playing from my library please comment below and I'll try to accommodate your requests.
