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.

Virtual Beer and Boardgames!

Online event

Please join us for our virtual Beer and Boardgames event! On Thursday night, we'll be playing games via Tabletop Simulator, and using Discord for voice chat. Speakers and a microphone are recommended for voice chat, although you're welcome just to type if you wish. Tabletop Simulator is available on Steam at https://store.steampowered.com/app/286160/Tabletop_Simulator/. It is a one-time cost to purchase. It requires creation of a free Steam account, and a personal computer to download the Steam client and the simulator client. A beginner's guide for Tabletop Simulator can be found here: https://www.reddit.com/r/boardgames/comments/fksgkh/tabletop_simulator_a_guide_for_selfisolators If you have questions or need assistance learning Steam or Tabletop Simulator, please RSVP and join our Discord. I will be happy to provide guidance! This event will be limited based on the number of attendees who can host and teach a Tabletop Simulator session. The RSVP limit may increase if we have more hosts volunteer. We hope to see you then!
