What we're about

Scrabble, Taboo, Clue, Uno, Scattergories Cribbage, . . . Learn new board games, share some you know and become acquainted with some that are new to you. At meetings, we will play games! Maybe one game or two. This is a social to meet other adults who enjoy board games. This is a group for adults of all ages, just adults. Our main location is Panera Bread in Gambrills/Crofton, but we occasionally meet at other locations.

Trivia Maryland at Frisco Tap House

Location visible to members

On our first visits we had enough fun to make this a semi-regular event.
This event is run by Trivia Maryland. Attached at the bottom are the official rules for Trivia Maryland's games. We are still meeting at Frisco Tap House, which while best known for its 100 beers on tap (no, really!), does also have an extensive food and drink menu. I've included a link to their website. The trivia starts at 7:00 PM, but I've schedule this event start for 6:30 so that people can settle in and place food and drink orders before the game starts. If your plans, please update your rsvp since this is a limited attendance event.

DICE GAMES (In Person)

Panera Bread

Tenzi, Qwingo, LCR, Twisted Farkle, anything played with dice. Lots of choices and time to play more then one. State in comments what game you are playing.

Lets support Panera by ordering food and/or drink. Not every place welcomes us like Panera does.

Mexican Train Dominoes

Location visible to members

Mexican Train Dominoes is another game that the group likes that we haven't been able to play virtually. The rules and equipment for this game are a bit different than the basic game of dominoes so I've attached a copy here. If you have a copy of the game, feel free to bring it. With the size of the group we will have, we will probably need two or three copies of the game.

Settlers of Catan and its variants

Panera Bread

One of the classics of modern strategy gaming is "Settlers of Catan" (1995). In this game, you are competing with your fellow gamers to acquire a certain level of control over the island of Catan. Long-term and short-term planning, resource collection, and negotiation are all part of the game. If you have not played strategy games before but want to give one a try, this is a good place to start.

I have one copy of the basic game which I will bring. If you have a copy, feel free to bring it with you. (If you have one of the variants, feel free to bring it also. There may be some advanced players who will be interested.) I've attached a link for directions if you would like to learn or review. Hope to see you there!
