Next Meetup

Join team-players with exciting chess variant (pieces you capture get placed by your teammate on future moves) usually with fairly fast clocks. NOTE: The Essen Haus is closed on Mondays, so you'll enter through Come Back In. We have special permission to use the Essen Haus meeting space even though they are closed. Plenty of food and beer to be had, as the Come Back In menu will be made available to us.

What we're about

We meet every month to play test new board and card game ideas, and occasionally other types of games. We discuss game design, work out mechanics, and so on.

Likewise, even if you're not working on a game, but like to play cool games then come play with us.
