What we're about

2021

Welcome to Voorhees Boardgames 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 and continue to come out to join the fun.

2020 proved to be a challenging year. We have managed to find a way to continue to meet online to play a multitude of games including: Wingspan, Dominion, Mystic Vale, Codenames, Ticket to Ride, Catan, Istanbul, Century Spice Road, Trivia and more.

We hope to get back to weeknight gaming at the Wegmans in Cherry Hill. On weekends, we plan to meetup at either the Voorhees Library or Panera Bread in Voorhees. Once or twice a year we plan to have an all-day party at a member's home. Perhaps we'll have another summer picnic in the park... with Boardgames, of course! We also look forward to in-person Trivia nights and attending 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.***

IN PERSON GAMING

We will continue to offer online Zoom game events. Soon, we will be resuming some in-person events. Pre-requisite for in-person events: must be >2 weeks post Covid-vaccination. Indoor events in public places will require masks. Outdoor events are mask-free, but vaccination requirement still a must.

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 - $15.00.

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 $15.00. 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.

Online Point Salad

Link visible for attendees

We'll be playing Point Salad on Board Game Arena.

As this is a quick game to play, we will probably play through it a few times and then move on to games per attendees' requests.

For Voice communication, we will be using Zoom. Click the Zoom link under the date and time of this event.

ONLINE Chocolate Factory

Link visible for attendees

Whether you've played before, or learning for the first time, please join us for a game of Chocolate Factory.

In Chocolate Factory, players are each given a starting player board which will have two Factory parts which apply to a physical conveyer belt. The conveyer belt part of the player board contains a long slot with an empty region in which to push square tiles along. The tiles will house the chocolate pieces players will manipulate throughout the game.

During the game players will initially draft a) new factory parts to add to their player board, and b) specialists (one time use cards with special powers).

Then each player will “push”, three times, cocoa into their machines. During each “push” players will be able to use fuel and their factory parts to manipulate their Chocolate pieces. Careful consideration will be required for the spatial element of the game as Chocolate pieces can only be manipulated during a push by the Factory part that is adjacent to their tile.

Players score points by creating chocolates for public and personal objectives. The player with the most points at the end wins.

Here is a 'you tube' to give you a flavor (yum) for how the game plays:

ONLINE Bruges

Link visible for attendees

Bruges, is a card and dice game where players get to decide which action they want to take based on the cards they draw and the dice that have been rolled.

The cards in Bruges have 6 different ways they can be used, and each way has varying degrees of success at winning the game.

  • Removing a threat marker
  • Obtaining two workers
  • Selling a card for money
  • Building a canal
  • Building a house
  • Putting a person into a house

The game starts with 33 cards per player across two draw piles. The game ends after one draw pile is depleted. Since each round consists of 4 actions per player, the game usually lasts about 8 or 9 rounds.

Here's a video to learn about the game:
