What we're about

You like board games no matter the form? You wish to meet new people while doing something fun? Perhaps you want to discover new games? Or you're looking for players to try out that brand new game you just bought or to play this old one you love?

Whatever your reasons, welcome to International Board Gamers!

This page is the meetup group for the International Board Gamers association in Gothenburg. The purpose of the association is to meet new people and make friends, especially with people from various corners of the world. We do this by organizing events related to board games and tabletop games.

We organize gatherings once every week, alternatively on Fridays (18:00-22:00) and Sundays (15:30-20:00), to talk about board games in all their forms and of course to play the games we like! Any type is welcome: from those that only take 10 minutes to those that last several hours, co-operative and competitive, cards, strategy, hidden-role games, from those that are played with only two players to those that gather a whole crowd! These events are now free to join.

Note that the language of this group is English, both online and during our meetings, to ensure people from every horizon can participate.

Isolation-friendly Board Games Sunday Meetup (online)

Online event

Welcome to the Sunday Board Games Meetup! It's taking place once every two weeks, alternately with the Friday Board Games Meetup, meaning one gaming session every week! Café Sirius, where we normally meet, is closed during the pandemic. Therefore, until there is basic immunity or effective treatments, we will be holding the events online. You may come at any time during the event, there will be people there at the starting time (maybe even a few minutes before) and feel free to stay as long or as short as you want. A couple of important things: - We will have several game suggestions, all of which are free to play and do not require any specific software or registration. We will just send you a link and you will be able to join directly. If you have a game in mind that you would like to play online, you are also welcome to suggest that. - We suggest bringing some quieter snacks for while you play. That's about it! If you have questions you can write a comment, create a discussion or contact our Meetup & Communication Manager Stefan Kuhns directly via Meetup's messaging function. See you there, IBG: Making friends through playing games!

Café Sirius, where we normally meet, is closed during the pandemic. Therefore, until there is basic immunity or effective treatments, we will be holding the events in a discord server. Try to come on time to simplify the matchmaking, then leave when you've won enough times (or are sick of losing!) and remember to head back to the main chat-room to switch groups and meet everyone! A couple of important things: -We will have a few game suggestions, but if you have a good game to play online, all the better. -We suggest bringing some quieter snacks for while you play. That's about it! If you have questions you can write a comment, create a discussion or contact our Meetup & Communication Manager Stefan Kuhns directly via Meetup's messaging function.
