We're coming up on that national tradition known as Super Bowl Sunday. In the past we've gotten together to play games rather than watch the game, but there was always something missing which prevented us from achieving the full on ignore experience: the actual football game in the background being completely ignored.

Pittsburghers, I miss you guys! I know a place where we can meet and beanplate together where the music is not too loud and the free street parking is plentiful, J. Gough's in Greenfield. Would anyone want to get together on the 28th?
An evening of post-work boardgames, chat, and drinks. [more inside]
Join us for board games and snacks at our place in Beaverton! [more inside]
The last time we met to play board games went well. Let's ring in the new year with a session at the Blue Shirt Cafe on Sunday, January 22nd, from 2:00 to whenever we want to leave. People can bring their own games of whatever genre and difficulty they like. If people would prefer to meet at a different time or date, I'm sure we can work something out. [more inside]
After our successful first-ever Brighton meetup, it would be great to have another one and hopefully get a few more folk along too. I thought it would be fun to spend an evening at Alcampo's Lounge (or somewhere equally amenable to games) and play a few lightweight boardgames (I have a few easy-to-learn ones and others are welcome to bring more along). [more inside]
It's been a while since we had a board game meetup in this area, so let's see whether there's interest in a new one. One of us could host it, or we could meet at a restaurant such as the Blue Shirt Cafe on Davis Square or a conveniently large Panera Bread like the one near Fenway Park. Based on past meetups, Knight Moves seems to have been a bust. A weekend, which would allow for the most play time, would probably be best. When and where sounds best to you all? EDIT:Let's meet at the Blue Shirt Cafe on Davis Square at 2:00 on Sunday, October 30th! Feel free to bring any game or games you'd like to play.
As usual, it's taken me forever to get another proposed event together because I am terrible with numbers, and events, and time. But! With the season of the witch nearly upon us, what better time to try a thematic board game meetup? [more inside]
Did you know that Beaverton has an Interactive Museum of Gaming and Puzzlery? They are having a 24 hour fundraiser starting at noon on Saturday, September 17th. [more inside]
A timely followup thread, for once! Who's up for some more board games in mid- to late June? [more inside]
It's been a while, hasn't it? It is, allegedly, spring, the weather will hopefully be pleasant at some point, and if all else fails, Frankford Hall will at least have lemonade shandies. [more inside]
Let's make this a regular thing! [more inside]
Hey Mefites, let's go play games of skill, luck, and cunning! [more inside]
Anyone feel like getting together to play board games somewhere in the Boston area? I'm open to any venue people can think of, as long as it's fairly convenient for everyone. EDIT: We'll play board games at cogitron's house at 7:00 PM on Saturday the 26th. Feel free to bring whatever games you'd like. If you'd like to come, just MeMail cogitron for the address. The address listed here is not the actual address for the meetup.
Come hang out with ocherdraco at 4th Avenue Pub on March 20th! She will be in town for the day and would love to see some Mefites. I can also bring some board games if there's any interest. [more inside]
It occurred to me tonight that it has been nearly 5 years since our very first game meetup. [more inside]
Hey all. I know there aren't many of us here in snowy Utah, but I thought it might be nice to have a board game night. It could be potluck style or we could get dinner or order in. I'm open to any ideas, as long as drinking and games are involved I'm in. I can host, I have a pretty big living area, a nice dog, and a ton of games, or maybe someone more central located might want to volunteer. Who's in?
It's been far too long since the last Philly Metafilter board game meetup! Let's fix that. [more inside]
I will be hosting a Games Day in my home on Wednesday, November 11th. This is Veteran's Day and is a holiday for federal workers. Start time is 11 AM, but people come and leave as they please, and since we tend to play shorter games it's easy to work in if you come after the start time. [more inside]
The first meetup went well, so let's meet again at Knight Moves on Saturday the 26th at 6:00! [more inside]
Labor Day weekend is almost upon us again, and that means DragonCon in Atlanta. (Please don't call it Dragon*Con, they had their *-hole removed two years ago at no small expense.) Even though an actual organized MeFi meetup is not likely to survive everyone's various convention plans, we can at least use this thread to talk about those plans. NOTE: like last year, the time and place listed are for the registration line, the event itself lasts Thursday-Monday, and is spread across 5 high-rise hotels and a nearby convention center. [more inside]
Would anyone like to meet at Knight Moves in Brookline to play board games? It bills itself as New England's only board game cafe and has a wide selection of games to play. I'm fairly sure it allows customers to bring their own games as well. There's a cover charge of $10 Thursday through Sunday and $5 Monday through Wednesday. What times and dates would work for people? UPDATE: Come to Knight Moves near Coolidge Corner on August 29th at 6:00 PM to play some board games! [more inside]
Time for our semi-regularly scheduled day of board games! Join us! [more inside]
It's been a while since we've gotten together to play some games, so let's meet up! [more inside]
So hey, it's been a while since we did this, hasn't it? How does June or early July look for interested Philly meeples? [more inside]
I will be hosting a Games Day in my home on Sunday, June 14th, from 3 PM until the last person leaves (which will likely be at least midnight). Games on hand include Tichu, Poker, Ticket to Ride, Blokus, Pegs and Jokers, Scrabble, Boggle, etc. People are welcome to bring their own games as well. We tend to split up into groups if there are enough people. Current expected attendee count is 6-8 but I would love a few more and I'd love to meet one or more Mefites in person. [more inside]
Time for another board game day! Lots of games to choose from, plus new addition Penny Press. Join us! [more inside]
My fancy gaming table has finally arrived, and it's time to take it for a test... drive? There will be the usual assortment of board and card games to choose from (or bring your own!). Food details inside.
Come drink beer and play board games! [more inside]
It's been a while since the last meetup. Let's get together to eat momos and play board games. [more inside]
Due to the holiday flu, I'm afraid we have to cancel the party. Sorry, everybody!
Same old, same old. Bring your games, bring your food, bring your drinks. We start at 2pm. UPDATE: We will be ending at 8pm this time.
Hey, everybody, why not work off the turkey and nog sluggishness with a rousing afternoon of board games in Toronto? [more inside]

Hey everybody- it's been ages since the Philadelphia contingent of Metafilter got together for board games. With the temperature starting to drop, what better time to break out the games again? [more inside]
Help us warm our new house and celebrate DM's birthday with a beverage tasting of tasty beverages. Bring your favorite beers and/or exotic sodas (Moxie!) and we'll have a few of our own. Bonus activities include board games and noshing. Note: location approximate. We'll memail those who RSVP with the exact address. [more inside]

Our August meetup will be SUNDAY the 24th. We'll start at 2pm. Bring your games, snacks and/or drinks. [more inside]
Several years previously, I've tried to hold meetups at DragonCon, and I practically never find anyone. There is really no reason to believe it'll be any different this time, but I'm posting this anyway, as a place for everyone to say if they're going and make plans, whether they will be thwarted or not. At the very least there is the awesome BOARD GAMING ROOM, a huge packed room containing a table heaped with hundreds of board games to check out, sufficient reason to attend the convention all by itself. Note, the time and place given is the registration line, this isn't a "normal" meetup. [more inside]
As discussed at last night's meetup, there is a lot of interest for a board game meetup! Let's meet at Roll Play Cafe at Yonge and Edwards at 2 PM on Sunday, Aug 10th. Bring your best games...or at least your game face!
Metafilter is 15! We should celebrate according to tradition for Australian 15 year olds, that is, hang out in a park and get drunk! [EDIT: Venue changed to the Courthouse Hotel, Newtown, due to overenthusiastic weather deities]. [more inside]
Our July meetup will be Saturday the 26th. We'll start at 2pm. Bring your games, snacks and/or drinks. [more inside]
Per request, we will have a meetup on my couch! I'll make some food, we'll play some games. PLEASE WEAR PANTS, THOUGH, THANK YOU. [more inside]
We all talked about it last night, it's time to give Queens a chance. Crescent lounge is a great, chill place for a meetup, and it is two short blocks away from the Broadway St N stop. There are lots of couches, drinks are very cheap by NYC standards, and there are board games. [more inside]
Time to head back to the warm confines of Frankford Hall for some gaming and drinking! We're going to shoot for Sunday Mar 16th at 1 pm. Hope to see you there! [more inside]
