What we're about
Who should join: This is a group for folks to meet up to play board games. If you're into this hobby already or if you're new to it and interested, we're happy to have you. We strive to create an inclusive and welcoming environment, and the host loves helping new folks get into the hobby.
Don't know any games? Don't worry - we'll teach you.
We meet primarily at a townhouse in Wheaton (Silver Spring), MD, right off the Wheaton metro stop on the redline. We also list local board gaming conventions as events, and sometimes group members will host events through the group.
We have space for 4-5 concurrent games, or for about 20-25 people. Some people stay the whole time. Some leave early or show up part way through the day.
Don't be surprised to see some Werewolf or 2 Rooms and a Boom if and when we get a big group of interested folks. Expect a mix of short, medium, and long games, thematic games, deception games, etc. This group is a little less Eurogame heavy, but they get played some here.

A few games that have been played a few times:
Betrayal at House on the Hill
One Night Ultimate Werewolf
We do potluck food and drink, so feel free to bring something to share. We'll often order Chinese in the evening.
The main venue is a pet-free, drug-free, no-smoking townhouse. It does have a small number of stairs that are unavoidable - feel free to ask for more details if you have mobility issues and are concerned.
We usually meet on Friday evenings and Saturdays and during the summer, Sundays.
Most events are open, but some, especially RPG events, are meant for a small group that signed up in advance. Post a comment or message the host if you aren't sure.
