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

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.

Board games a plenty, feel free to brings some -- usually a couple of us do, and the Mox has a modest library.

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

The Mox can be reached via Bus and Max, but if you drive parking can be a little random. But I think the Mox will validate for a couple hours.

Epic Roleplaying Afternoons

Ken's Artisan Bakery

We are now playing a D&D 5E game,
and we play EVERY Saturday,
but we also play other systems like Call of Cthulhu, Super Heroes, Cyber Tech Noir, 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]

Call of Cthulhu is Lovecraftian Investigation -- and worse "Discovery!" -- at its finest.

Cyber Tech Noir is a near future game in 2069 where HyperNet Hacking and Euro-Chic Crime meets Back Ally Bargains and High Society Revenge.

Using an ultra simple house system, inspired by Cyber Punk, Disco Elysium, and Unknown Armies, and a few Futuristic Movies -- we have three characters whose worlds are about to collide!

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 drink, and make friends as we share in Epic Sagas.

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.
