What we're about

The Meeple & Cardboard Syndicate was created as a way for people in southern New Hampshire and Maine to get together and play games of all types! Board games, card games, role-playing games...whatever you like! Our mission is to grow the hobby of board gaming with all we encounter by teaching, playing, and enjoying board games.

There are no limits to the games we will bring to the table, and we encourage all current members and potential gamers to bring, teach, and play their favorite European style, classic, collectible card, strategy, and American based board/card games. We welcome any and all levels of gamers. Our events are open to the public to casually join, learn, and play most any game you can imagine!

We post events that are not only local, but also promote conventions that are happening in the surrounding area and we encourage our members to host their own game nights at home, through our local game store, Diversion Games in Portsmouth, NH, or any public site that has prior approval. So grab some dice, dust off your favorite board or card game, and come join in on the fun!
