Next Meetup

Freeform Gaming
This meeting will be a freeform gaming event. Freeform Gaming meetings are open gaming events where everyone is welcome (and encouraged!) to bring along any games they would like to play. We always offer an introductory board game for new attendees (or for old veterans who've never played that game). If you bring a game, please be prepared to teach it to others, or make it clear up front if it will be a learning game for everyone. Rules lawyers and game-crappers should feel free to stay home. To attend, all that we ask is that you review the Group Guidelines ( and please RSVP at least 24 hours in advance. If you are on the fence about coming, please let us know in your comments and confirm one way or the other as soon as you are sure.

What we're about

This is a group for people who want to meet other enthusiasts who play games which require a living person to be across the table. Primarily the meetings we will have center around playing through different boardgames. For those interested in RPGs, many of our members have ongoing games looking for players or players looking for games. Feel free to drop by our Wednesday meetings or post a recruitment thread on the forums. We also allow people to bring their homemade boardgames for testing.

We don't allow Collectible Games, under any circumstances. We meet weekly, on Wednesdays @ 5pm, but our location, and start time, can change. Members are encouraged to meet outside of Wednesday group meetings for private outings, particularly with regards to rpg groups.
