Bring Your Own Game Night in DC at Nanny O'Brien's
Nanny O'Brien's is allowing us to use their back room for some board game socializing. Please reciprocate their generosity by purchasing food and drinks. Happy hour goes from 4 - 8 pm and includes $1 off all draft beers. Free street parking starts at 6:30 in most areas (make sure to read the signs). If you're taking the metro, take the red line to Cleveland Park and walk two blocks southwest on Connecticut (we are located next to CVS). We play a variety of board games ranging from silly party games to complex strategy games. Gamers of all experience levels are welcome. Bring your favorite games to share with the group or just bring yourself and play the games that are provided. Many of the members are happy to teach games and hopefully you will be one too. This is a friendly group that is always happy to meet new people. See you there!

What we're about

Public Group

Hi! This is a group for fun-loving, non-competitive people who enjoy playing party and board games. We have several wonderful venues where we can enjoy food and drinks while playing a few games. We like playing ALL types of board, party and card games, so don't hesitate to bring any games you'd like to play (or feel free to come empty-handed).

Our Meetups are relaxed environments where you have an opportunity to play old favorites and learn new soon-to-be-favorites. Don't worry if you haven't played many games before. People are happy to teach new games, and it doesn't matter if you win or lose horribly. The event hosts will bring the games they own and everyone else is invited to bring other games they're interested in playing. There's usually the opportunity to play two, three or maybe four games in a night with different people, depending on when you arrive and what's being played. We play a wide variety of games with a focus on Eurogames and party games. Here are some of the games we typically play.

- Codenames
- Spyfall
- The Resistance
- Splendor
- Castles of Burgundy
- Power Grid
- Keyflower
- Agricola
- Terra Mystica
- Twilight Struggle

We are really fortunate to have wonderful venues that indulge our game playing, so please tip generously. Thanks!


Beer & Board Games meetups are meant to be a safe space in which we can socialize and share our passion for board games. Please stay polite and relaxed and remember that we're all there to enjoy ourselves.

We have a zero tolerance policy for harassment. Examples of harassment include but are not limited to unwanted physical contact, intimidation, or verbally threatening someone. In addition, harassment via electronic methods such as email or private messages will be treated in the same manner as physical and verbal harassment. Abuse of this manner may result in a temporary or permanent ban from future events.

While we have single members and we hold many events, this group is not a singles group. Please be respectful of each other's time, personal space, and wishes, and consider that even if your intent is good and flattering, your behavior may make someone uncomfortable. If you are uncertain whether your attentions are welcome, it is always better to err on the side of caution and refrain.

If you experience or witness harassment or a problem of any sort, please contact Dawn, Kat, or Ed ASAP. Your privacy will be respected. Coming forward helps us prevent future occurrences and protects your fellow members. We value your opinion and want all our members to thrive in our community.
