What we're about

Boise Area Boardgame Enthusiasts was created to help grow the gaming community in the Treasure Valley and to bring together a bunch of new and amazing people that have a love, passion, or even a slight interest in boardgames and tabletop games!

There's a lot of events to choose from and many different types of people who love to play, but you'll never find out unless you get out there and start playing! I know quite a few of us would be eager to meet new people, play some games, and share our love for the tabletop hobby so don't be shy about chatting with anybody.

If you would like to host an event, please reach out to any of the Leadership team and we will happily help add the event for you!
