What we're about

Welcome board gamers! Come and play board games with us! We meet twice a week in downtown Helsinki to play board games. We do break from the schedule below sometimes (e.g., when venues are closed) so keep an eye on our event calendar (https://www.meetup.com/board-games-helsinki/events/calendar/) for the latest information.

We are a casual group so people come and go over the course of the evening. It doesn't matter if you can't make it at exactly 6 PM, but be ready to wait for the next game if you come in late. We tend to play fairly casual games that take 15–90 minutes to finish but do also play heavier games for 2+ hours.

Additionally we sometimes do escape rooms and other fun things in Helsinki. These are sometimes unannounced, so check back often to secure your spot!
