** As of March 12, we have cancelled all our in person meetups to help ensure the safety of our community. This would be a great time to try online gaming or solo gaming. We will return to live events as soon as it is safe to do so!
The Toronto BoardGamers are passionate hobbyists who get together at free, non-competitive events all around Toronto to explore the thousands of modern boardgames together!
Our members love learning new games, love teaching their favourite games, enjoy playing games for the social aspects and treat each other with respect. We welcome new members who are interested in being an active part of the community by meeting our Membership Requirements (https://www.torontoboardgamers.ca/membership.html).
Our calendar is full of events, each of which is an opportunity for you to meet new gamers, learn new games, and teach your favourite games. Many of our events are held at boardgame stores where you can also purchase the games we play and grow your own collection.
Each event includes a detailed description about the event and venue. Most of our events have an open gaming structure, which means that attendees bring their own games and then choose which game to play at the event, but some are more structured where attendees know what they are playing before showing up. Some events have limited space, where your RSVP is a commitment to attend, and others have no limit so it's ok to cancel even at the last minute. Some venues sell food, some allow you to bring in your own food, and some don't do either. This is the type of information that will be in the event description so please make sure to read that over before attending each event so you know what to expect.
