Next Meetup

GameNight! goes to Minneapolis (sort of)... at the NEW Twin Cities 400 Tavern!
• What we'll do If it's Sunday, it's GameNight again! For the fourth Sunday of every month, we have a reservation for the group at a surprise location to be announced shortly beforehand. Expect Good food, good drinks, good servers, a good location and good ambiance. Look for this meetup every fourth Sunday of the month, from 5pm to 11pm at a surprise location. This month, the surprise is the new Twin Cities 400 Tavern... in Minneapolis! OMG, we are going to cross the river, visit the enemy to the west, get lost in the outskirts of the cities... LOL! Actually, I found this newly remodeled hotel restaurant/bar just over the border... in the area by where I-35W, Hwy. 36, and MN Hwy 280 all sort of meet and get tangled up in the industrial park between the twin cities. You won't even need a passport! It's a nice place with a large meeting room area just for us to use all night long. Good menu, good bar and beer selection, I really hope we like it, it has a lot to offer. Here is some website and menu information... (And as always, please remember to tip your servers generously!) So, you ask... Why Move GameNight!™ to a new place every week? Because I want to stir up the humdrum regularity of the same place every week routine that GameNight has gotten into after being a Meetup for over five years, that's why! Sure the games are often new, and always fun, and it's great to see all the regulars who show up often enough that we usually have over twenty to thirty players on any given Sunday night. But getting out of the house should be special, and a new spot to enjoy every week will help do just that. Plus, there's no law that says we can't go back to a favorite place from the past. One more thing... you are welcome (and encouraged) to suggest a location that you'd like to see used for this series of Meetups in the future. Saint Paul area has been where we have met usually (scattered North, South, East, and elsewhere in town), but I am open to anywhere that is popular with the group members. So make a comment below to let me know what and where YOU want to play boardgames, okay? How our Boardgamer Meetup group works is simple: I always bring a bunch of my games that I think are good for our group. Old, new, hard, easy, weird, you name it. The folks who show up pick or suggest what they'd like to play... Enough people, and we can play several games at once. Easy-peasy, it's just like a democracy! But more fun ...But what's next and new? We shall see. Bring anything you'd like to play (and maybe teach to the group). We could even go back and replay a game that we liked before. Imagine that! See you there, and remember: "Play more games!" Your host, Chris Hoppe TTFN! • What to bring Check out the pictures below for some examples ... • Important to • Important to know Go to the back of the restaurant, we have a reservation for their party room. Look for the host ... (Chris Hoppe, 612-414-1249 if you need to text/talk to me for more information) ... get a nametag, meet some new gameplaying friends, and have fun!!

What we're about

Public Group

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.
