What we're about

2016 is going to be a year full of board games and you've come to the right place to take part. Our group strives to both a great place for veteran players to get together and play and a perfect gateway for curious newcomers to learn more about the board gaming hobby. Whether your only experience is playing monopoly with your family on Holidays or you own every expansion to Dominion, this group has something for you.

While we are always looking for new places to play games together, we currently have four major game nights that happen on a weekly basis, they are: Monday Nights at Card Addicts in Pelham, Wednesday Nights at the Brookwood Mall, Thursday Nights at Excelsior on Lorna Road in Hoover, and Saturday Nights at Card Addicts in Pelham.

Aside from those, we constantly have fun events added to our calendar such as the Hoover Library Game Night once a month.

Wednesday Night Games at Brookwood Mall in Homewood

Brookwood Village

*IMPORTANT* Please RSVP to this Meetup if you plan to attend. On Wednesday evenings, we meet at the Brookwood Village (http://www.shopbrookwoodvillage.com/), commonly known as Brookwood Mall, located at the corner of Montgomery Highway 31 and Shades Creek Parkway. We meet 6:30 - 9:00 pm in the food court at a set of tables next to where the Up escalator emerges. We are a very friendly and open group and invite new players to join. We offer a wide variety of games, but play mostly Euro-style games. We are very patient with new gamers and will take the time to explain and teach games to anyone willing to learn. If you would like to know of the types of games we typically play, feel free to browse through the game libraries of some members: Member Game List (http://www.meetup.com/theBBG/messages/boards/thread/21978032). If you have any questions, then feel free to post a comment and one of the group organizers will respond.

Thursdays at 2nd and Charles

2nd and charles

Thursdays in Hoover returns with game nights at 2nd and Charles! Once you enter the store, make a left and follow around to the comics area! It's fine to bring your own games in like we usually do, just bring them directly to the gaming area. They have soft drinks and some snacks available at the checkout lines, and it is fine to have drinks in our gaming area. Hope to see everyone there!

Thursday Night Board Games at Mythic Cards and Games in Pinson

Mythic Cards and Games

*IMPORTANT* Please RSVP to this Meetup if you plan to attend. Mythic Cards and Games is a newer store in the Pinson/Trussville/Clay area and we are looking at starting a Thursday night board game session. We meet 6:30 pm to around 9:00 pm each week to play a diverse mix of board games and card games. I believe that the store usually closes later than 10:00pm. There is no admission fee for attendees, but please consider supporting our host, Mythic Cards & Games (https://www.facebook.com/mythicgamer/).
