What we're about

This is a group for board gamers of all skill levels looking to get and be a part of the biggest (and absolute best) board game community in the Triangle! We welcome everyone from people just dipping their toes into the board game scene to that one guy who owns maybe a few too many expansions for Carcassonne to realistically ever play with. The idea is to meet up either on a weeknight or weekend day 4-5 times a month at different bars, have a few pints, play a few games, and make some new friends! I have access to a small library of games but bringing your favorites is definitely encouraged, looking forward to meeting everyone!

Hello everyone, let's play some trivia at Brightleaf Square! It runs from 7:30 until about 9:30; let's meet at 7:00 to get situated (they start filling up at 6:45). Good people, good beer and good fun.

Please try to keep last-minute cancellations to a minimum - I have to make reservations the day before as it is a full house. Thank you.

Board Games, Online and At Your House!

Online event

Hey Everyone! Going forward I am leaving this event live and active. We are going to be making some major and ongoing improvements to the discord channel so that it becomes a more useful place for our members to hang out, play games online, and talk outside of our in person meets. I have created a Discord channel that can be accessed through this invite link: https://discord.gg/wYEPG2Y .

If you've never used Discord before basically it is a communication platform that allows for free text and audio chat. I will moderate this channel with a team of volunteers, feel free to @ me anytime with any questions you've got! I've created a handy guide for people to use to get set up for the first time, you can find it here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/16p6N1UeL2WMdlpG8G5KgH-ZURmR-KJsmpFqdBEN7S1w/edit?usp=sharing

The Discord channel will be open to all 24/7, so please feel free to use it outside of the "meet" times. If anyone finds a game or has suggestions, please let me know in the comments or email me at [masked]. See you around!

Board Game Party at Gamers Geekery & Tavern!

Gamers Geekery & Tavern

For at least a little while its all Gamer's Geekery and Tavern, all the time! If you never got the chance pre-pandemic to make it out, the place is not only super cool, its basically custom built for our hobby. We will eventually get a second location out in the Raleigh area like we used to have, but lets show some love to one of our earliest supporters for a while in the meantime. We will definitely be at Gamers at the last twice a month though, so don't worry if you love this place as much as I do!

Important note: Because this place has a MASSIVE library (I am talking 100's of games) and sprawling event space they charge a cover charge for the venue, but for a group our size that breaks down to $2.50 a head. So keep that in mind!

This event is pretty simple, come on out, grab a name-tag if you want to be social, or don't if you haven't quite shaken off the pandemic isolation jitters. (If you can stomach it though, grab one, it helps the awesome staff keep your orders straight). It used to be that we would start off with some kind of big group game like Codenames, Werewolf, or BloodBourne then split off into smaller groups to play just about everything and anything else, we will see what the new meta is once we are back in person.

One last and important note. You are all adults and I think I have done about everything I can to push safety up through now. I am asking that you please only come out to this event if you have received your vaccination. Please, please do not become a reason I end up needing to permanently shut these down!

Okay, if you've stuck it our reading to this point, thanks! I genuinely can't wait to see everyone again, here's looking forward to some fun and normalcy!
