What we're about

Formerly known as Metrowest Board Gaming. We are a group of gamers in lower New England that meet up to play strategy board games, deck-building games, LCG's, and the like. We originally started in Metrowest, but have begun expanding beyond those boundaries to serve gamers across Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Connecticut.

Currently, we have three weekly meetups (every Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday), four fortnightly meetups during the week (every other Monday and multiple events for Tuesdays), four monthly meetups on the first Thursday, the third Thursday, and the fourth Monday of the month plus one Friday night based on venue availability. On top of all that, we host one all-day event on a Saturday every quarter to play longer games that we are not quite able to get in at one of the weeknight meetups. There are also other occassional one-off meetups in addition to those and several several fill-and-fire events you can view by expanding the "More Meetups" at the bottom of the Upcoming Meetup list or at the Fill and Fire page (https://www.meetup.com/TabletopGamersAlliance/pages/Fill_and_Fire_Games/ (https://www.meetup.com/MetrowestBoardGaming/pages/Fill_and_Fire_Games/)).

This meetup group was established on September 10th 2013 and currently costs $144 per year to run (Meetup.com Subscription Pricing (https://help.meetup.com/customer/portal/articles/465027-organizer-dues-price-plans)). das_ninja (https://www.meetup.com/MetrowestBoardGaming/members/74469272/) (the group organizer) would be extremely grateful if members each donated $1 per year towards that annual cost. You may give your donation in cash directly to das_ninja or to any Event Organizer in the group.

You can also "Chip in" with bank or credit card using the button on the left-middle of the page beside the piggy bank. Meetup takes $0.50 + 7.5% of each "Chip in" transaction, so please donate at least $1.50 when using "Chip in". Meetup does not allow us to customize the values for the buttons on the "Chip in" page, so please let your sticker-shock quickly subside.

All donations will go towards the cost of the subscription. Any donations in excess of the cost of the subscription will be applied towards the cost of a running one of the quarterly meetups or a one-off meetup. Members who donate will be forever recognized on the Wall of Gratitude (https://www.meetup.com/MetrowestBoardGaming/pages/Wall_of_Gratitude/)
