What we're about

2020

Welcome to Voorhees Board Game Meetup Group. We are excited to have you join us this year for fun, laughter and good times. This Meetup Group is for people who love to play board games and enjoy life. The Organizers are grateful to the terrific Meetup Game Players that have & continue to come out to join the fun.

We play a variety of board games and we encourage members to bring their favorite games to the Meetup. We are always eager and willing to learn a new game or revisit an old game. Some of the games we have played at Meetups are as follows: Wingspan, Tiny Towns, Gizmos, Dominion, Mystic Vale, Codenames, Ticket to Ride, Settlers of Catan, Guillotine, and more!

We meet at Wegmans in Cherry Hill on weeknights. Weekend meetups are held either at the Voorhees Library or Panera Bread in Voorhees. Once or twice a year we have an all-day party at a member's home. We have had summer picnics in the park... with Boardgames, of course!

We attend Trivia nights at various venues, as well as Escape Rooms.

Here is some important information you need to know before joining:

***You must post a photo of yourself when you join. It is a requirement for this Meetup Group. If you do not, you will be removed. Thanks for your cooperation.***

FEES

There is a cost associated with hosting a Meetup with meetup.com. To help alleviate some of the costs, we ask our members to assist us with this cost through charging a nominal fee. We have provided two fee options which are a yearly fee or a meetup day fee:

New people always welcome at no charge for first Meetup.

Yearly Fee - This fee is for our Gamer Players who come out on a regular basis - $12.00.

Meetup Day Fee – This fee is for our Gamer Players who participate only a few times a year. This fee is due the day of the Meetup - $2.00.

***Fees will be collected at the beginning of each Meetup. Please bring the exact amount of either $2.00 or $12.00. Thanks!***

PHOTOS

In order to be a member of this Meetup Group, we require everyone to post a photo of himself/herself. Cartoons, caricatures or avatars are NOT acceptable. We require a photo because we believe that providing a picture and your name gives us some assurance of who we are meeting. It is also helpful to the organizers to be able to find our members in a crowd. With a picture in hand, we know exactly who we are looking for as well as give us a level of comfort when meeting people for the first time. Our pictures are posted to give our members the same level of comfort when meeting us. Please include a real name with your photo.

NO SHOWS

If you RSVP YES & then are not able to attend the Meetup, please change the RSVP to NO. We understand things come up in life and plans have to change. Just be courteous and update your status. We appreciate this consideration. We would prefer for you to RSVP NO, if you have other plans on the same date of a Meetup and are unsure of your attendance. If your plans change, and you are able to attend the Meetup, please just show up - the more the merrier.

Members who have excessive NO SHOWS will be removed from this Meetup Group.

MEMBERS

If a Meetup Game Player has not attended any Meetups for more than a year, he/she will be removed from the Meetup Group. We want to have a current list of active members. The removal of non-attending members will occur every year in January.

We welcome suggestions and ideas for our Boardgames Meetups. Let us know of any new locations we can use for our Meetups.
