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.
A few games that have been played a few times: Cthulhu Wars Betrayal at House on the Hill Terraforming Mars One Night Ultimate Werewolf Splender
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, gun-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 Saturdays. We'll occasionally do something on another day/night, and the group often hosts Friday night RPG sessions, although those are often long running campaigns with prearranged groups.
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.
