So, you grew up playing Monopoly, Parcheesi, Sorry, Risk, Stratego, and you battled with Trouble's Pop-o-Matic Bubble. Perhaps you were exposed to German based board games via Geek & Sundry's Tabletop Webisodes. Maybe someone you know has a copy of Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, Carcassonne or Dominion. Now, you're telling yourself, "There have got to be more people in Memphis who like to play games like this."
You're in luck! You were right. There are MANY people in the Memphis Area who enjoy playing board games, and these people like to get together often to do so.
Mid-South Board Gaming Club is open to anyone in and around Memphis, TN, who enjoys board games and is looking for people to take part in some friendly competition. Board game veterans as well as anyone interested in or new to the board game hobby are more than welcome to join.
We primarily play strategy board games, which are also known as Eurogames. If you aren't familiar with this genre of board games, you are more than welcome to attend any event. You'll find someone willing to teach you how to play a game or two.
Near the University of Memphis campus, across from RP Tracks and tucked away behind Moe's, Garibaldi's is our home for Thursday night games! They're gamer friendly and serve a pretty broad menu of sandwiches, pizzas, and baked treats.
Don't be shy if you're new to modern board games, we love teaching games. If you're looking to play something in particular, post a comment and ask about it. If you want to play it, chances are others want to as well!
It's Friday night! What a great time to meet new people, play some games, and scarf down some snacks. There's plenty of room for tables. The full range of games from social to complex tends to get played on any given Friday night. Fun for all and all for fun!
