What we're about

The Enthusiasts is all about linking up game players with fellow game players. We have a variety of activities going on from Open Gaming at West Sixth Brewery every first and third Monday of the month starting around 6:00ish (whether you like beer drinking or not :) ), Open Gaming at The Rusty Scabbard every Wednesday at 6:00, to learning new games, competing in tournaments and finding new gaming friends at the annual LexiCon Tabletop Gaming Convention, held in late April at the Clarion Hotel. The convention was for a full weekend and had over 1,000 people there last year.

Details about LexiCon can be found here: LexiCon Tabletop Gaming Convention (https://www.facebook.com/lexicongaming) on Facebook

Here are some details about our open gaming events in Lexington:

Meet nearby Board-game Players!

The first and third Monday of each month starting between 6:00 and 6:30 we play all sorts of board and card games at West Sixth Brewery. We have an average attendance between 16 and 30 people a week and we always have at least a few new people show up every time! (That means you are welcome too.) We have several ambassadors there from Mike, Josh, Jessie, Karen, Chris, and Daryl to help you get involved in a game. There is even a restaurant on site serving food and of course the beer is delicious.

Every Wednesday night at the Rusty Scabbard, join us for a night of games. We play whatever someone brings that strikes our fancy. In the past we have played games like: Apples to Apples, Unspeakable Words, Guillotine, Acquire, Settlers of Catan, Puerto Rico, Dominion, etc. See the About Us section for more details. Mostly we just like games, so if you have a favorite, bring it. The group is 15-20 people on most nights, a mix of men and women, ages 20-60.

Please do not hesitate to e-mail the organizers with questions or if you are not sure about attending.

We also have irregular events at other locations and times, that will be posted on this site.

Second Saturday Gaming at the Library

Lexington Public Library: Beaumont Branch

To help inform the public that our local library now loans out board games we are hosting a monthly game day at the library!

Game night at Rob's House!

604 Raintree Rd

On the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month, I am opening my home up for game play! I have three open tables and a personal game library of 300+ games (and growing). All are welcome! I only ask hat you RSVP if you are coming so I can have an idea of who to expect and prepare for. If you have any requests for games/food etc, let me know in advance! Rob (859)[masked] [masked]

(Suspended until further notice) Let's play games, and socialize

Every Wednesday night is once again game night! Families are welcome, but there might also be adults going to grab a drink afterwards. We have access to the 50+ games of the board game group. There will be a game highlighted every other week that the Rusty Scabbard will focus on, though open gaming will always be available.. Board games are a great way to meet new people, bond with the family, challenge your intellect, or just have fun! I look forward to seeing everyone there. My name is Rob, so just look for me back at the tables and I'll be sure to get you in on a game you'll enjoy.

(Suspended until further notice) Thursday game night at Barnes and Noble!

The local Barnes and Noble has been very happy to host our group , and have opened their cafe for our open meetings! There is plenty of room, a nice and inviting atmosphere, and plenty of games for young and old. The Barnes and Noble do not have any freely available games, so members are encouraged to bring selections from their personal game libraries. Games are often taught, so don't be worried that you might not know what to do! We also have a Barnes and Noble discount card for the group that will give 10% off any books, games and food. Please see Event Host Thomas (HappyClam) for the card. This event has proven to be great for families and introducing new games, or new players to great games too!
