What we're about

On the 3rd Thursday of the month starting about 6:30 PM we will have open board game play until around 9:30pm Some of our favorites include Ticket To Ride, Settlers Of Catan, Carcassonne, Scythe, Bohnanza, and Pandemic. The Park Ridge Public Library, The Gaming Goat (Harlem Ave), and Beer on the Wall (our venue) all have a combined library of games for us to choose from.

There is no charge for this event and you are welcome to take a game from the library or just bring your own. We have a good mix of new and experienced gamers, and new people are generally competitive in the kinds of games we play. It is a very friendly crowd and everyone is willing to learn or teach a game. Food and drinks (beer, wine, coffee, tea) are available for purchase or you may bring your own food.

Each meetup we'll have a featured game and an instructor to teach the game to anyone interested. Instructor will start tutorial promptly at 7:30pm but participating is not required, only if you want to learn the new game.
