What we're about

So you've named your cat "Q". The bumper sticker on your car reads "My other car is the Millenium Falcon". You start affecting a British accent after watching Doctor Who. You own dice that have more than six sides. You sometimes mutter spells under your breath and marvel that they don't work (if they do work... I wanna meet you). You secretly hope to be bitten by a radioactive spider or wish you could go on a quest for Shikon Jewel shards. And you might even have more toys now than you ever had as a child...

YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

This group is designed to bring together "nerds" and "geeks"... those enthusiastic fans of science fiction, fantasy, anime, and comic books.

We'll get together a couple times a month, sometimes doing something related to our passions (a sci-fi movie, convention, show) or just get together to hang out and socialize (mini-golf, comedy show, dinner). Hopefully we'll make friends, have good times, discover the secrets of the universe (42) and take over the galaxy (well, only if it's for the greater good). Our meetup locations will vary... some will be in King of Prussis, others might be in various surrounding towns or even downtown Philly. At this time there are no plans to hold any meetups on any other planets or in any other dimensions... but that can change and we are open to suggestions.

Live Long and Prosper!

WE'RE BACK! Monday Board Game Nights at The Bourse Food Hall

Needs a location

Friends - in person Monday Board Game Nights will restart on Monday January 10th!

same location: The Bourse
same time: 6pm - 9pm
same cost: FREE

If you haven't yet joined us at The Bourse, its a gorgeous & spacious Food Hall with lots of room, long tables, and a variety of food & drink vendors to choose from. Ideal for our group!

There is no fee and we'll be bringing our own board games. If you own lots of board games, feel free to bring a few of the ones that you don't mind teaching. And if you don't own any but still want to have fun, than just bring yourself.

note: starting January 3rd, Philadelphia has a new Covid policy mandate, so in addition to wearing a mask, you will also need to show proof that you are fully vaccinated.

I'll be adding details in the Comments and please feel free to also comment or ask questions. Additionally, you are welcome to mention which games you plan to bring in the comments as well.

Can't wait, see you there!

Quizzo at Ladder 15 every Tuesday

Needs a location

Friends - remember when a bunch of us would stay to play Quizzo when we'd got to Happy Hours at Tavern on Broad? Fun times! I've been looking for a new Quizzo spot for us. Last Tuesday (Nov 2nd) a bunch of us had a great time at Ladder 15's first Quizzo Night, so lets go back & make this a regular Tuesday thing! Whether its your first MeetUp or your 100th, Ladder 15 will hold a bunch of tables for us & we'll split up into teams at those tables. Its great way to meet new people, have some food & drinks, plus test your trivia knowledge!

Our MeetUp friend Andy will be hosting / co-hosting this event with me. This is a FREE MeetUp to attend, and there is no cost (also FREE) to play Quizzo.

I think there will also be some food & drink specials, and I'll update this with more details as Andy & I find out. Still, can't wait, Ladder 15 should be a terrific new spot for us for Quizzo!

see you there,
David & Andy

Online Catan (Catan Universe) every Thursday at 7pm

Link visible for attendees

Since the reopening post Covid, we now have moved our large weekly Monday Board Games Night back to an in-person Event -- its every Monday at The Bourse (see our Events for more details). However, one of the rare upsides of the Covid lock-down was the enjoyment we had playing online board games using our Discord to talk/chat while playing! So let's keep it going!

We will be hosting an every Thursday online Catan group, using the Catan Universe platform to play, and we'll meet on Discord at 7pm to talk while playing. Part of the beauty of this is that you don't have to live in Philly to join us, the internet connects us all. Plus, as we head into colder months, it may seem easier to simply have fun & socialize with the group from the comfort of your own home.

USE DISCORD TO CHAT
Zach has expanded our Discord Chat Rooms to be able to accommodate 15 people each, so large group & team games can be played. Here is the link: https://discord.gg/nJdSyaeTzP

Using Discord has been terrific so far, allowing us to live chat & socialize while we've been playing.

please leave comments & questions below.
see you online!
