Struggle of Empires, War of the Ring, Chess
I started the Miami board games meetup with Joel back in 2007. I remember no one showed at the first few events except me! I met many new friends through this meet up and hope for its continued success in spreading the hobby and connecting gamers.
I enjoy playing at Joel's store because it is centrally located and there are lots of games to browse. Joel has been in the hobby for decades and is generally supportive of board gamers who support his business buy purchasing games from him. Playing at UM with Don is a great alternative to Joel though, with more space and a relaxing atmosphere.
