What we're about

This is a group about meeting up and playing great board games new and old. Most of all just having fun! Get to meet new people, snack/drink, and play great games. I started this group because I love table top gaming and I want this hobby to keep growing in the Orlando area. Everyone is welcome to bring games. This is at The Hourglass Brewery which is a small local bar with great staff and a focus on craft beer. Please help them out to support their business as much as supporting this group. We also do giveaways on Patreon.com/thethirstygamers. Don't miss out and sign up today!
