What we're about

Having trouble finding opportunities for board gaming in the 'burbs? We're a group which gets together several times a month at various bars or brewpubs for gaming fun! We generally play Euro-style board games and card games. We are always looking for new folks to join us and new places/times to play. Currently we have regular meetings three times a month (organized by two different groups), but more are always welcome!

Seize Your Turn - Meet once a month in Paoli. If you want to see the types of games we play, photos from many events are posted on our Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/SeizeYourTurnFans ). If you use BoardGameGeek, then you'll find our most in depth conversation threads on our BGG guild ( http://boardgamegeek.com/guild/1012 ).

Anyone looking to for a competitive and friendly board gaming group is welcome to join us at our monthly meetings.

Occasionally other events are hosted by members and annually we have our pollyanna style board game exchange in December. Some games we've recently played: Seven Wonders, Citadels, Settlers of Catan, Tichu, Medici, Carcassonne, Power Grid, Fresco, Keythedral, Pandemic, Wizard.

Seize Your Turn

Great American Pub

Our social group is dedicated to spreading the joy of learning, playing, and collecting table top strategy games in the west Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area. We host free monthly events in local pubs providing a library of games for strategy board gamers to enjoy. The fun of learning, sharing, and playing takes precedence over the declaration of victory or long debates over rule ambiguities. The environment is friendly enough to embrace new gamers, but still challenging for the 5 year veteran. Our selection of games is provided by our attendee's personal collections and everyone is very respectful of each other's cardboard. It is typical for every game played to have at least one new player learning. It's all about expanding the community! Our motto for these events is Drink, Play, Score! There is no attendence fee for our events, but we do encourage you to purchase food and drink from the pub as this allows our events to remain free. If you want to see the types of games we play, photos from many events are posted on our Facebook page. If you use BoardGameGeek, then you'll find our most in depth conversation threads on our BGG guild. --------------------------------------------- Hi All, As Redhound Grille is now closed we have moved to a new location. We will be at the Great American Pub in Paoli. Right now we just have a reservation for this month as we feel out how we it and how they like us. It's tricky to find a spot that will want us, so we want to make sure this month that they like us. This will be our second time at this location. I listened to a lot of feedback and heard that the back room was great but the buffet was a big thumbs down. I talked with the manager and we are going to do a fixed menu instead. You will have a choice of the five following options. Hopefully this will work out better for everyone. classic all american burger ceaser salad nachos crispy chicken waffle blackened salmon blt I asked about us being in the back room, and he said that if he didn't otherwise reserve the backroom we could use it (which should be the case this month). He did say we could add tables to the front room if that would help us, so that's a good option even if the lighting is not quite as good. Let's see how this one goes and go from there. Either way, it will be great to see you guys and play games together! BTW, if anyone has Wingspan, I'm very interested in trying it out :-) Nick
