Note: Due to Atlanta traffic and it being a week night, players tend to wander in between 5pm and 7pm. So, if you can't make it at 5pm, come anyway!
This meetup is an opportunity for game enthusiasts to come together and play some of our favorite board and card games.
There will be a number of games available for play, as well as friendly folks who can help with the rules. We play a wide variety of board and card games; shorter, longer, casual, strategic, cooperative, and competitive.
Many of the games we enjoy are European games like Power Grid, Carcassonne, Agricola, and Ticket to Ride. If you are not familiar with these games, they tend to run from 30 to 90 minutes and are different from most of the boardgames we all grew up with. Players are generally not eliminated from the game, so everybody is engaged for the entire game. They also usually involve the accumulation of victory points, so you generally are not having to take directly from other players to advance yourself. The games are also very sociable and a lot of fun.
We also play more thematic games like Last Night on Earth, Battlestar Galactica, and King of Tokyo. These games usually have more direct conflict and player elimination which tends to generate a lot of excitement around the table. These games can be short and sweet and finish in less than 30 minutes, or they can be epic slug-fests that deliver hours of entertainment.
All ages are welcome but children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
We are a very informal group that really gets into the games we play, so don't be afraid to introduce yourself and tell us what you'd like to play!
