What we're about

UPDATE (3/16/20): As many of you will have guessed by now, the current pandemic we find ourselves in is having a major impact on gaming. Until this passes, we unfortunately have to suspend all public meetups.

We'll be back to our usual gaming meetups as soon as possible, but until then, stay safe and healthy out there everyone!


Games, games, and more games...

Welcome to the Cleveland Board Gamers!

We play games like Ticket to Ride, 7 Wonders, Catan, and Agricola. If you don't know how to play, we are happy to teach the games we play.

We play games at the Medina, Mayfield, Nordonia, Parma, and South Euclid Libraries, Recess Games in North Olmsted, the Quirk Cultural Center in Cuyahoga Falls, Deekers in Mentor, and Panera in Highland Heights. If you enjoy playing games, you've come to the right place! We play a lot of games here. Please check our calendar for details.

Life is simple. Eat. Sleep. Play! We don't stop playing because we grow old. We grow old when we stop playing.

I hope we see you soon.

BOGA at the Quirk Cultural Center!

Quirk Cultural Center


BOGA (The Boardgamers of Greater Akron) are now holding their meetups at The Quirk Cultural Center in Cuyahoga Falls! These meetups are open to the public (you don't have to be a BOGA member to attend). Quirk is an excellent facility with tons of space to spread out and play games! There is also plenty of parking, vending machines are on site, and snacks are welcome. Use of the Quirk is not free, so we are requiring an entrance fee of $3 per person at the door (cash only). There will be lots of games available to play, and everyone is welcome and encouraged to bring some of their own as well. The Quirk Cultural Center used to be an elementary school. It's gymnasium has been converted into a Banquet Hall, which is where we meet on the second Friday of each month. On the fourth Saturday we meet on the second floor in room 207 (which used to be a classroom). We can also overflow across the hall into room 211 if we need to. Here is what the Quirk looks like from the outside: Note the covered entrance where you can safely unload your games, even in the rain! Feel free to ask any questions in the comments below!

Eastside Gamers

Panera Bread - Shoppes at Alpha Place Shoppes

Welcome to our weekly playgroup! Most weeks we' have 30 to 40 people playing games. We have games starting at various times as people show up and games end. We are a fun group of people who enjoy getting together to act foolish, make jokes, talk trash, laugh, and play games. Because of the spontaneous nature of our group, we usually show up not knowing what we're going to play. Some days we end up playing just "our faves". The truth is that we'll play any game if someone brings it and convinces us we want to learn how to play it. It's not about what types of games we play, it's that we play games.
