What we're about

Welcome to Williamsburg Board Game Enthusiasts, a Meetup group for tabletop gamers located on the Virginia Peninsula from Hampton to Williamsburg/James City County including Newport News and York County and west to Richmond. We promote the Board Gaming Hobby for Eurogames and American Style Thematic Board Games for adult gamers by providing a means to connect fellow tabletop gamers for fun and friendship and providing a forum for local gaming enthusiasts to communicate. We host an open monthly weekend Game Day and The occasional game event personally hosted by our members.

This Meetup does not Feature RPG's or Card Gaming like Poker or Bridge or word games like Scrabble or Upwords though our members may play these games from time to time.

Remember, the purpose is to meet and play so members are encouraged to host Games or propose gaming events, post photos of gaming sessions, post session reports, and discuss everything else about Board games. Many of our events are Family friendly.

August Game Day

Needs a location

Welcome to Game Day! Let's escape the heat and game.

This is where you find people committed to the big, longer games that you love and takes time to play. You have 12+ hours to do it in so the sky's the limit. Of course there is plenty of casual gaming of all types as well. Everyone who has been to game day can attest to how friendly and engaging we are. So visit us for the whole day or for just an hour or 2. We would love to meet and spend time with you.

Is There a game you want to play? Post a comment to suggest a game, schedule it, and find willing participants to play along with. You can post a link to rules or a video play-through. Don't hesitate to communicate.

Don't own a game that you are interested in trying? Well post a question on that too! Odds are if it was published in the last 25 years, one of us owns it and will likely be willing to bring it along.

There is a full working kitchen and fridge, so you may bring snacks and meals to keep you gaming throughout the day. Some folks bring food or snacks to share but you are not required to do so. We are centrally located in Williamsburg with plenty of food joints nearby. To help prevent any messes, we ask that you do NOT bring open drink containers. While we encourage you to snack/eat throughout the day, please be mindful and respectful of people's games. Mind those Orange Cheese Puffs. they have a life of their own.

As always, Please make sure you park in a space without a number. Dont want to inconvenience the residents.
