What we're about

Do you want to play more board games and meet some awesome people?

Meet nearby Board Game Players! Board Games are making a comeback! Come to the Diablo Valley Boardgames Meetup to enjoy spending time from a full range of games from lighthearted Telephone Pictionary to intense mind burners like Neuland to traditional war gaming. This group is primarily to draw attention to organized events at game stores in which the many dozens of Risk-Like Games are also featured. Risk was originally published in 1957, but currently published by Hasbro. It is not just a game, but a way of playing. A perfectly balanced mix of strategy and luck that generated hundreds of titles around the world. Some are official versions of the original one, others are a development of the basic concept. While this group features Risk Like, it is dedicated to promote the knowledge of all board games and to gather their fans.

Risk like Games and other resources are featured here:

-Happy Gaming!

Sunday Euro Game at Round Table

Round Table Pizza

We generally play every 1st and 3rd Sunday.
Masks are not required and are personal preference.
We are either in the very front of the restaurant or in the Party room in the back.

There are attendees who do not have meetup who show up to these events. In general we have some where from 5 to 8 people who show up outside of meetup.

We have a wide range of board games that our regulars bring. You are welcome to bring your own or use the games we bring. Please be courteous to any game you borrow. Thank you!

Here are the games I own: https://boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/Geek%20Modern
I usually bring a small selection of them. Please let me know if there is one that you would like me to bring and I can!

We usually start around 11:30am and go to whenever we feel like ending. We sometimes start with some short games to wait for people to show up. Some people pre order their pizzas for in store pick up.

This is a 18 and over event, thank you.

Black Diamond Games Thursday Board Game Night (Concord)

Black Diamond Games

Board Game Night at Black Diamond Games!

Thursday nights Black Diamond Games hosts a board game night from 6pm-10pm. You are encouraged to bring a game to play, or just come and enjoy some of the other games being played.

Note that I am not actually the host of the event and may not be present. This is an existing, recurring drop-in event run by the store so there are always players there even if our meetup only shows a couple of people going. So do not let the count here determine if you should go or not. The people there are also very friendly!

There is normally a board game library but it is currently unavailable.

The cost is $5, which is paid to the store and in return you get $5 of store credit.

Attendance is at your own risk, I do not know the health or vaccination status of any attendees and the store may or may not have a mask policy.

Hope to see you there!
