Euros at Guardian!

Guardian Games

To all of the regulars, and the awesome fresh faces that come every other week, I am so sad to have to say that we have decided to put game day on hold for a while because of the risks posed by the Coronavirus.

According to the guidance issued by the Oregon Health Authority and Governor Kate Brown, all events with more than 10 people that include people in "high-risk populations" should be cancelled or postponed.


As this high-risk group includes "older adults and those with underlying health conditions" we (Guardian management and the meetup organizers) feel that it is important to do our part to encourage social distancing and help keep gamers in these high-risk categories safe.

Of course, this is disappointing to all of us. And we are eagerly looking forward to a return to our normal schedule as soon as this guidance changes. Thank you all, and hope to see you soon! IF you have questions, send me a message through meetup. Thanks everyone!


**The 20% off deal is not available until we resume regular meetups after the threat of Covid-19 has passed....

20% Off SELECTED Board Games to all Attendees! (ie. The store will discount most board games 20% for game day attendees, but a handful of games cannot be discounted! Please don't give the employees grief if the special-mega-kickstarter-exclusive-miniatures-uber-thing you want can't be discounted! Roll with it. And let's play some games!)

Once again, Rachel will be hosting afternoon of boardgames at Guardian Games from 12:00 until about 7pm. This is a great event with a lot of regulars, and we always welcome new faces... We play all day, and we have enough people for several different groups, so if you can't show up at 12:00, you can always jump into the next game! I tend to bring an assortment of medium and medium-heavy weight euros, but am a huge fan of most types of games, so feel free to bring a game if you know it well enough to teach it. See you there!

**PARKING UPDATE: Hey there Meetup Gamers! Guardian has asked us if those of us coming for Sunday game day (and staying most of the day) can park on the street to save the spots in their lot for people who are just coming in for a brief visit. Thanks for helping out the store!

Portland Vegan Boardgamers

The Sweet Hereafter

Hello! The purpose of this group is to have like minded vegan board gamers come together to play vegan-friendly board games. (We've also enjoyed just chatting, and recommending vegan food spots to each other.)

Any games featuring the exploitation of animals are not welcome
(no Catan, a Feast for Odin, or Dinosaur Island for example).

We have tended to play lighter games, but there are those of us who enjoy medium complexity games too. Just be aware the tables aren't the best, so watch out for dropped pieces.

You may bring a guest who is not vegan, we just simply ask that you do not order any non-vegan foods. Please bring your favorite game!

SE PDX Game Night at Lucky Lab

Lucky Labrador Brewing Co.

UPDATE: VACCINATIONS are REQUIRED at this event. I can't speak for the bar, but if you want to play games with us you must be vaccinated. Thank you for considering the safety of your fellow human beings!

It's time for Thursday night games at the Lucky Labrador Brew Pub. We tend to start coagulating about 5:30 but often don't get started till six when a critical mass starts to form. Although people trickle in throughout the evening looking for open space at any new games starting up. Many people stay until the pub closes.

This has been an on-going event for many, many years and is only loosely affiliated with this site and thus **most people do not sign up on this 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. We tend to play games on the difficult/complex side of things at this meetup though at any time you might find a light Euro has found space at a table. You just never know.

The Lucky Lab serves a wide variety of beers, sandwiches and snacks with many vegetarian options.

Hope to see you there! And you can bring as many guests as you want! :)

Mox Middleweight Boardgames

Mox Boarding House

Changing this to compete less with Magic Wednesdays.

Please join us any time through the evening. It's ok if you arrive a little late.

Come learn and new game and meet new people, each Thursday evening.

We play mostly lighter and middle weight games -- from Sushi Go to Dune Imperium. But I have see everything from Castell to Viticulture.

The Mox can be reached via Bus and Max, but if you drive -- the Fred Meyer parking lot is always an option, and only a block away.
