What we're about

CALLING ALL TABLE TOP GAMERS!!!

SWOTT is a group dedicated primarily to playing Euro-games (European Style Board Games). These aren't like many American-style board games that are combative, eliminate players, drag on forever, and rely heavily on the luck for the outcome of the game. Euro games typically involve seeing who can accomplish their own goals the best way possible where good decisions are rewarded and bad ones much less so. I guess the best way to describe many Euros is that they are co-opititions. The other nice thing I've found about these non-traditional games is that they move quickly and even the longer games flow so well it doesn't seem like a long experience.

Not sure how to play? No problem! These games are pretty easy to pick up and I'm pretty familiar with most of them, so there won't be hours of rules reading to bog us down. I'll give whoever needs it a run down of the game and off we go!

Who: Everyone from 10 to 100 is welcome. I have a wide array of games that accommodate everyone from the novice who's never played so much as a game of Tic Tac Toe to the seasoned veteran in search of a gaming group. When: Saturdays between 1 PM and 7 PM (Our first meeting will be on January 13th)

Where: New Carlisle Toys and Games
104 W Washington St.
New Carlisle, OH 45344

(they have a gaming area chock full of tables and chairs we've been invited to use.

Cost: Nothing, nadda, zilch. You'll be responsible for your own refreshments. There are a number of convenience stores and restaurants nearby.

Final Notes:

If you have a game you'd like to try out, you're more than welcome to but we'll play whatever is the group's consensus is.

I reserve the right to ask anyone who isn't behaving themselves to leave. While a good healthy competitive spirit is welcome, I won't tolerate bullies, cheats, or language beyond what you'd find in a PG-13 movie. This is a family friendly group and all are welcome.

We play a variety of table top games so bring whatever you like to play. We're usually 3-6 players strong each meeting and whatever the group decides on is what we play. We're pretty laid back so it's basically whatever everyone is up for. Now that SWOTT is unlimited, we may be running multiple games at once to accommodate everyone who shows up. Bring your game money! New Carlisle Toys and Games sells tabletop games, RPG materials, Warhammer 40K, and some other odds and ends. There's a Lee's Chicken, a Subway, a Dominos, and a Papa John's in town so if you want to munch and play there's options (Just please wash your hands before you play! Respect people's games by NOT getting grease on their components.) Finally, Have Fun! I love the experience of diving into a table top game on a Saturday afternoon. Whether it's the excitement of learning a new game (which is nearly every week), or it's the fun of trying new ways of playing games I already know - I enjoy sitting down with other people to... well... play more games!
