This is a group for anyone who enjoys playing board games and would like to make new friends while doing so.
There is a free 30 day trial period when you initially join this group to see if it's something that you would like to continue participating in. After 30 days, if you would like to continue being a member, $12 of annual dues will be requested. This is solely necessary to help cover the fees that Meetup.com charges all of it's organizers to set up social groups on their website.
Our event is every Thursday night at Dave & Buster's in Westbury Long Island from 6:30pm to 10:30pm. You can leave prior to 10:30pm if you want, also please note that Dave & Buster's closes at Midnight for those who want to stay later.
Most people arrive at 6:30pm. We use the first 30 minutes to talk, order food/drinks, and pick out games while we wait for any people that are a little late. Promptly at 7pm we split into groups and play our games that typically take 2 hours to play. So, if you arrive after 7pm there is a good chance that you will not be able to get into a game and can watch us play if you'd like. At the end of the night we play a couple of additional shorter games that you can get into.
This group meets in the Large Dining Room at the table directly in front of the wall with 9 Big Screen TV's (We are located 1 room over from the pool tables).
There is no cover charge to enter Dave & Buster's and plenty of parking is available. All that management at Dave & Buster's asks is that each person purchase $5 off their menu (it can be 1 appetizer, or 1 dessert, or a few sodas, basically whatever you choose).
Plenty of board games will be present at this event, but feel free to bring some of your favorites. Some of the games that we play are Kingsburg, Stone Age, Lords of Waterdeep, Istanbul, Terra Mystica, Agricola, Tikal, Machi Koro, Takenoko, Codenames, Catan, Camel Up, Colt Express, Ticket to Ride, Carcassonne, Castles of Mad King Ludwig, Love Letter Batman, Splendor, Pirate's Cove, Five Tribes, Castles of Burgundy, and more.
Here is a list of the board games I own on the BGG website:
Looking forward to meeting you.
