What we're about

Come meet other nearby game players who also enjoy this hobby! Event locations will be held in Fairfax County. Meeting locations include public libraries, homes and FLGS (friendly local game stores). We play board games and card games. Whether you prefer Splendor, Power Grid, Concordia, Scythe or something else, join us for games and socializing.

Everyone interested in tabletop games is welcome to join this group!

Are you interested in hosting events but don’t want to become an official MeetUp Organizer? Just contact me. I’m looking for Assistant Organizers and Event Hosts.

About the organizer: After discovering better board games in 2013, I have amassed a good sized collection (https://boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/CharlieDeegan?gallery=large&rankobjecttype=subtype&rankobjectid=1&columns=title%7Cstatus%7Cversion%7Crating%7Cbggrating%7Cplays%7Ccomment%7Ccommands&geekranks=Board+Game+Rank&own=1&objecttype=thing&ff=1&subtype=boardgame) :) Since Sept 2014, my husband Dave and I have been hosting a monthly game night through our other MeetUp Game Night! Chantilly/Fairfax (http://www.meetup.com/Game-Night-Chantilly-Fairfax/).

Upcoming events (5+)

Eurogames party - West Springfield

Virginia's place

We love Eurogames and have dozens. Guests almost always bring more. We do not provide dinner. You are welcome to bring your own. Drinks and snacks will be available. It is OK to arrive late. We are more likely to get you into a game soon after arrival if we know when to expect you and know what level of play appeals to you. We are happy to teach games to people who are not familiar with whatever we are playing. We do not want to try to teach you a complicated 2- or 3-hour game if you prefer entry-level games such as Ticket to Ride. Dogs: We have two. We can use your help teaching them to stay calm and behave politely when guests arrive. If one is being too friendly please shun her -- TURN YOUR BACK AND IGNORE HER. People who do not like dogs may play at tables in the basement while the dogs stay upstairs.
