What we're about

This is a meet up for everyone who loves table top board and card games.

What do we mean by table top games? Contemporary games that fall within the German or Euro Style, and games of the style often played on Web Series TableTop, usually games that sit within the top 1000 games in Board Game Geek.

This means we are not talking about your classic family games like Monopoly or Scrabble, we are not talking about hearts, solitaire, or poker either. If you do like these games, feel free to come along and try some new ones.

Current popular games can be found by checking out our instagram account Behold Games (https://www.instagram.com/beholdgames/)

We play for fun, not for competition, and we love playing new games. If you are new to a game, we are happy to explain rules to you before we play.

Please take a moment to read the code of conduct (http://www.meetup.com/Sydney-Tabletop-Games/pages/Code_of_Conduct/) found in the files section of this facebook group!

Your group Moderator is Teena Hanson.

Hopefully we'll see you soon :)
