Join us Downtown for an afternoon of board games. Casual, fun atmosphere -- try new games, and make new friends. Officially it starts at noon, but you can play all day if you want. If you have board games that you love to play -- please bring them. If you are new to board games -- just bring your self, and maybe a friend. Don't be shy, just ask any table if they have room for another player. Currently, the seating is just in their restaurant -- but they have lots of room. Find out more about this new store at www.moxboardinghouse.com/portland Please be responsible and respectful in these interesting times, we encourage all flavors of people to come by. The Mox has food and drink, see more here: www.moxboardinghouse.com/portland-menu If you have any questions, just ask for John at the Event or message me or the Organizer of this Group at any time.
This Sunday Rick will be hosting a session at Guardian Games. At the get together we will be playing 3 hour (or less) wargames. We will start at Noon when Guardian opens and play until no later than 4:30 PM. Players experienced with wargames are, of course, welcome but so are players who have thought about wargames but not yet become wargame players. Wargames can be off-putting because of their reputation for long playing time and high complexity. There have always been interesting short and approachable wargames but in recent years publishers have been producing more of these than ever. In recent weeks we have played Commands and Colors: Ancients, Table Battles, 1775: Revolution, Memoir '44, Fort Sumpter, 13 Days, Wild Blue Yonder, 878: Vikings, Maneouvre and others. Spread the word if you will and join us Sunday at Noon.
Last Tuesday Game Night When: 4:00-8:00pm every last Tuesday of the month Where: West Slope Community Library (3678 SW 78th Ave, Portland) Who: Adults and teens who enjoy a variety of tabletop games Description: Join us every last Tuesday of the month for a laid back evening of gaming at West Slope Library. Drop in between 4:00 to 8:00pm to play a variety of games, from fillers and party games to abstracts and euros. Every month we will play and learn a featured game in addition to other games players bring. The library also has a collection of board and card games that can be borrowed for one week, so make sure to bring or sign up for a WCCLS library card!
It's time for Thursday night games at the Lucky Labrador Brew Pub. We get started around six, although people trickle in throughout the evening. Many people stay until the pub closes. **People don't always sign up on the site, but lots of people come every Thursday night.** Anyone new who comes please feel free to approach people already playing or looking to begin a game. They'll be happy to tell you a little about what they're doing and how much longer their game will last. We play many board games and card games at these events. Though we tend to focus on family strategy games (Euro games). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German-style_board_game The Lucky Lab serves a wide variety of beers, sandwiches and snacks with many vegetarian options. Hope to see you there!
