What we're about

Hi Gamers!

Board Gaming Geeks (BGG) is a Pittsburgh + Virtual gaming community that is a safe, friendly, and fun place to learn and play board games of all sorts. We want every member of our community to focus their attention playing fun games and on being a better gamer, both at BGG events and in our larger online and real-world Pittsburgh communities.

Want to hang out with a group of like-minded adult board game players for fun and relaxation? Board Gaming Geeks herein refers to people, often of an intellectual bent, who are enthusiasts of board game activities. Prior Board Game experience is not required.

Want to game regularly on Friday nights? BOARD GAMING GEEKS meets on FRIDAYS at 6PM. We look forward to your RSVP

We are playing on-line games for now, until the COVID-19 pandemic is over.

Want to play games like:

[ ] 7 Wonders (w/ expansions)

Virtual Board Games

Online event

Don't worry if you don't know how to play many games! The games we play are easy to learn, and one of us will be happy to explain how to play any game you don't already know. (It usually takes 5 minutes or so to learn a new game.)

After you RSVP "yes" for this meetup, there are two things you need to do to get ready to play.

Everyone needs to be able to participate on Zoom (audio only is fine). You will see the link (to the Zoom meeting specific to this event) when you RSVP yes here.

The other thing you need to do is create your user account on https://boardgamearena.com - when we play together, one of the organizers will add your boardgamearena account name to their friends list, in order to be able invite you to games.

Note: time given is EST/EDT (East Coast time) but since we're virtual now the meetup is open to all! We usually play until 10 or 10:30, but some people leave before then or stay later - play as long as you like!
