What we're about
Upcoming events (4+)
We are now playing a D&D 5E game,
and we play every other Saturday or so,
but we also play other systems like Call of Cthulhu, Super Heroes, Modern Magic Mystery, Cyber Tech Noir, Star Quest and other home brews.
We play at my place at NW 21st & Flanders, contact me for exact address.
Or for any questions my email is [masked]
We have several players, but we could always fit one more. :)
For home-brew games we often use a simple house system, inspired by many other game including Mörk Borg, Cyber Punk, Disco Elysium, and Unknown Armies, and others.
Contact me for more details and Location.
We encourage people who have little to no experience with RPGs to give this a try. Veterans role-players are also very appreciated. :)
We try to keep the sessions episodic so you can jump in any time, or miss sessions -- and it's no big deal.
We are generally rules light, fun focused, letting your creativity shine from the dorky to the dramatic. All experience levels accommodated, and personal uniqueness is encouraged.
Other games we play run the gamut from Fantasy to Pulp, Super, Cyber, Space, and the occasional Cthulian Horror.
From Tolkien to Terminator, and Harry Potter to Heavy Metal.
Move mountains, shake worlds, enjoy a snack, and make friends as we share in Epic Sagas.
Join us to play a range from party games to middleweight to medium-heavy games. We have over 80 games, and our recurring gamers also bring dozens of games. We have lots of space to game, with eight gaming rooms containing 16 tables that seat between 4 to 8 players.
Come whenever you want; we are going till at least 1 am.
We encourage anyone to come by. This event is great for people who are new to board games; we have lots of people who can teach and show you around! If you need a break from the board games at any time, we also have foosball, darts, and karaoke starting around 11:30 pm :)
BEFORE THE EVENT
Join our active discord, where regulars and new attendees chat about the next event, side events, and a plethora of other fun topics. You can also use this to schedule games you want to play or arrange carpools
NAVIGATING GAME NIGHT
Please make a nametag when you arrive, and feel free to grab some food and a drink. Folks tend to gather and eat food for the first 30 minutes and games start around 4:30 pm. New games are generally starting every 20-30 minutes throughout the night.
You can ask in this discord channel if you have any questions during the event (including needing help finding a game to play/join). Additionally, the event hosts and regulars are always quick to help
Snacks, drinks, and some hot food are provided by the host. Attendees bring lots of snacks, so there is plenty to eat. We encourage attendees to bring their favorite foods to share
Feel free to bring games, especially ones you can teach
Join planned games on discord, or feel free just to show up and choose a game to play when you arrive; there are nearly one hundred games in the house to choose from. You can also see games other attendees bring, chat about your favorite games, and more on discord
Notable and frequently played games:
- Spirit Island
- Captain Sonar
- Marvel Dice Throne
- Cat in the box
- Dark Tower
- Quacks of Quedlinburg
- Just One
- Root (and the RPG)
The last event was SO amazing I can’t wait for this event!!!! Anyone in the fence if joining, I highly highly recommend attending. Amazing people, wonderful games, and a truly friendly atmosphere
As a newbie, I arrived nervous and scared because I didn't know anyone. however, you all made me feel accepted and comfortable, and I absolutely appreciate the crew that I got to sit with and play the first few games with. Thank you, Kia and Kyle, and I apologize I forgot your name, but you played an amazing wingspan game.
I am looking forward to the next game night in 2. Thanks again!
Thank you, Kevin and Alanna, for hosting game night. As always, it is lots of fun and the best way to end 2021! May you all have a blessed 2022! Thank you to Scott and Dan for playing Captain Sonar and Mansion of Madness games! It was lots of fun!:)
Thanks for hosting Kevin and Alanna. I had so much fun raising dinosaurs with Odin, Scott, and Albert.
Just wanted to say, Thank You to Kevin for hosting a great event all the time. Thank you to Alanna for organizing everything to make sure it runs smoothly. And Thank you to Steve and everyone who brought Scythe (Steve's set was the coolest, though, I will never get over those pieces.)
Thanks Kevin, for hosting again! I had a great time building forests and cities on Mars!
thank you Albert, for showing us Terraforming Mars; ironic that a possible meteorite landed nearby !!
Note: I am not the actual host of this event as I no longer live in Portland, but there is usually two or more tables of folks that don't RSVP but regularly attend and the actual host (Ben) will be happy to bring you into a game.
Dice & Drinks is back and better than ever! We meet up every Saturday at The Portland Game Store, 7pm until midnight. I'm excited to announce all the cool new stuff we're doing to celebrate:
- More beers on tap than ever before!
- A new game rental shelf! Rent a game for $10/week and get that money back if you decide to buy it.
And of course everything you've come to love about this meetup is still the same. The area still has great restaurants, there's still free parking, and the store is easily accessible via public transit and close to I-5.
As always, no knowledge of games is necessary to join the fun. We're happy to teach and play games of any complexity, from simple party games to hardcore strategy games. We'll greet you at the door and make sure you find the game and group that's best for you.
We hope you'll join us!
Like-minded vegan board gamers come together to play vegan-friendly board games. (We also enjoy just chatting, and recommending vegan restaurants to each other.)
Any games that include exploitation or other harm of animals are NOT welcome.
Please keep your RSVP (going / not going) up to date!
Check RSVPs / event description / etc. a few hours before attending: sometimes people drop off and it's not worth attending if too few show up.
Please bring a game if you can!
We tend to play light and party games, but some of us enjoy medium games too. Just be aware the tables at Sweet Hereafter aren't the best, so watch out for dropped pieces.
