What we're about

The Twin Cities Board Games group welcomes everyone! Our members play the full range of games from classic board games to party games to Eurogames. Our goal is building community through playing board games!

Many of our meetups are open to all ages and we encourage you to bring friends and family. We frequently combine an evening of board games with a potluck and often highlight new games that have been provided to us through our sponsors.

GameNight! CHANGED (due to Easter)... so we go to The Chatterbox Pub instead!

Our regular location down there in Eagan (the Union 32 Craft House) had the AUDACITY to close for Easter! Well, a little setback like that can't stop GameNight!,... so we go to a NEW place that I think you will like a lot: The Chatterbox Pub in Minneapolis! I went here recently and saw that this place would be perfect for a GameNight! Not only are they a funky old bar with classic pub grub that was tasty and affordable, but OMG.... the beer selection was the best I've found at any bar recently. Best of all, the owner, Steve, is a big supporter of boardgames. They have a selection of oldies (like Sorry!, Yahtzee, Connect Four, Boggle, and others), but they ALSO have space setup to play classic videogames like Atari 2600, Nintendo, and Sega Genesis! Get your inner kid on! Bring a kid.... they won't care, it would be cool! Here are a bunch of links with more information.... http://www.chatterboxpub.net/ http://www.chatterboxpub.net/images/pfd/Midtown%20menu%20July.pdf http://www.chatterboxpub.net/images/pfd/Midtown%20Desserts%202014.pdf http://www.chatterboxpub.net/images/pfd/Midtown%20Beverages%20July.pdf http://www.chatterboxpub.net/menu/Atari,%20Nintendo,%20Sega%20&%20Board%20Games.pdf Your assignment, is find a way to get there. Yes... I know that Minneapolis is a long-distance phone call from your home. Give it a try. Your comfort zone will thank you for doing the right thing.... Good enough? Great, let's get together this coming Sunday night at a NEW spot to place some boardgames! • What to bring.... Bring yourself, any friends you would like to have along, maybe some boardgames that you own and want to play with other folks. Money to support the location with food and beverage purchases is always thoughtful too! • Important to know.... We have a big area of the restaurant reserved just for us. Go to the back of the bar side, take a left into the main seating area, (going past the restrooms), go to the back area and look for all your regular Sunday night friends. Grab a nametag, a beer, a pizza, or just a boardgame to play.... ....ENJOY THE FUN! Call/text Chris (your host/organizer) at[masked] if you need extra help or information. HAPPY EASTER! (the next four or five weeks will be dedicated to spring, summer, and fall)

GameNight! at BIG LOUIE'S BAR & GRILL every Tuesday in Crystal

Big Louie's Bar and Grill

Join us on Tuesday nights for a weekly board game meetup at BIG LOUIE'S BAR and GRILL in Crystal. As a courtesy to our hosts, please buy some food or drinks and tip generously (we take up their tables for an entire night). Official start time is 5:00PM but if people show up early or later that's okay, too. Here is their menu link: http://biglouiesbarandgrill.com/files/bl/menu.pdf Here is their main website link: http://www.biglouiesbarandgrill.com/ We generally play "modern" board games as opposed to old standards like Monopoly or Scrabble. They run from light, breezy games that take 15-30 minutes or more up to "brain burner" ones that go for a couple of hours. But even if you haven't played board games since Candyland, don't be intimidated. Teaching games is something we do every meetup, and half the fun is learning something new. There are so many games out there that nobody has seen them all. If you have your own board-games, bring 'em! Hope to see you there! -- Your host, Chris Hoppe TTFN! • What to bring ... Bring yourselves! LOL ... and maybe any friend who you'd also like to play boardgames with. • Important to know P.S. .... Look for the boardgamers with piles of cardboard game boxes nearby. Signage may be displayed to help you spot the group... Call or text Chris Hoppe if you need more information or help at:[masked]
