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 :)

Fhis event we meet for a friendly, fun and relaxed games night.

Payments must be made via PayPal (using credit card or your PayPal account) at the time of event RSVP and are non-refundable (except where the event is cancelled or rescheduled). What is beginner friendly? Beginner friendly is more of an attitude than limiting you to the 'easy' games. It is standard that anyone who teaches/brings a game will run through rules before playing so even if you're not familiar with the games we play, just let the person teaching the game know your skill level and the players will all chip in to help you out if you want help. We are a friendly and non-competitive group, and this is reinforced through the Code of Conduct we abide by.
