What we're about

Come on out for a pint and abstract strategy boardgames like Chess, Go, Hive, and many others!

All skill levels welcome. Regular members come from all walks, including students, a stand-up comedian, software engineer, teacher, lawyer, historian. Play is casual and friendly. We play many different games, so we are always learning. Games are usually 20 minutes or less, so on a given night you get to try several different games and opponents.
