What we're about
One of Santa Cruz long running gaming groups, going strong since 2005.
We are a group of 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 somethings, men and women who enjoy meeting new people and having fun playing board and card games. Please note that we generally do not play traditional card games (canasta, bridge, poker) or traditional board games (monopoly, standard Risk). We play nearly every weekend.
So what games do we play?
We play cooperative games like Castle Panic, Red November, Aliens and Pandemic.
We play deck building games like Dominion, Dark Gothic, Tyrants of the Underdark, Legendary Games: (Alien, Big Trouble in Little China, Buffy the Vamipire Slayer, Marvel and Predator) and Valeria.
We play resource building games like Caylus, Kingsburg and Lords of Water Deep.
We play games involve 3 to 5 players like Battle Sheep, Dixit, Tsuro, Splendor, Sewer Pirates.
We play games that involve 6 to 7 players like Mission Red Planet, Settlers of Cataan and Seven Wonders
We play short games and we play games that take 3 hours plus like Axis and Allies and Twilight Imperium.
Your hosts provide beverages and have many, many games. You bring snacks to share and games you have to share. Together we get to have a blast gaming and meeting really cool people.
Please note there is a $10 annual fee to members to help pay for the cost of hosting this group. Please pay organizer directly and receive a receipt.
