• Epic Roleplaying Day

    Ken's Artisan Bakery

    D&D and Star Pirates

    Epic Role-playing at the Mox has transitioned to my place, about 3 blocks away. (At 21st & Flanders)

    For D&D 5E the characters are 4th Level, studying at the Arts and Defense University in the Last Elvin City (after the Dragon Wars). Here you learn new abilities, meet friends, engage in urban intrigue, and take lots of field trips.

    Star Pirates is a home brew space game of privateer adventure in the New Worlds!

    In a galaxy filled with Eldar, Syreen, Thanigarians, RoboTrons (Transformers), Skrulls, and Blobs -- and so much more stolen from comics, books, games, TV and movies.

    Your scallywag did not really fit into polite imperial society, or something tragic happened that made you chose to leave civilization travel thousands of light years away to the savage New Worlds.

    Seeking a new life of fortune and glory -- measuring all creatures by their merits and not preconceived prejudices.

    Schedule:

    Oct 9 = Star Pirates
    Oct 16 = D & D
    Oct 23 = Star Pirates
    Oct 30 = D & D
    Nov 6 = Star Pirates
    Nov 13 = D & D
    Nov 20 = Star Pirates
    Nov 27 = D & D ? Unless too many people are out of town.

    Contact me for details and Location.

    I 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.

  • Euros at Guardian!

    Guardian Games

    EUROS AT GUARDIAN IS CURRENTLY ON HOLD. WE WILL _NOT_ BE HOSTING THE SCHEDULED EVERY-OTHER SUNDAY GAME DAY AT GUARDIAN UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE BECAUSE OF COVID-19 .
    --------------------------------------------
    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.

    https://sharedsystems.dhsoha.state.or.us/DHSForms/Served/le2263.pdf.

    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!

    --R.
    -------------------------------

    **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! :)
