What we're about

The Queen City Game Club is a 21+ meetup for gamers interested in more complex or strategy driven board games. Traditional strategy games, abstract games, euro games and war games of all kind are welcome. This group will also be a community for local board game designers that are interested in obtaining feedback and looking for playtesting groups.

Our meetup schedule, includes several monthly meetup events, including our popular Beers and Board Games event at the Waldhorn.

Finally, we also look to match up gamers for various ad hoc meetup events. If you are interested in playing a particular game and are just looking for a few other players, you can setup a new meetup indicating the venue and the max number of participants for your game session. We request that you attend at least one public meetup before making a request to host an event at a private residence. Our message boards are also available for making request when looking for members to join in a specific game session.
