Are the meetups for adults or children? Are children allowed?
What kinds of games do you play?
We will play most any tabletop game. We generally bring several from our personal collection, but anyone is welcome to bring their own as well. You don't have to know how to play before attending; the objective is to have fun, meet and get to know other people.
We generally avoid playing games that may be offensive to marginalized people (e.g. Cards Against Humanity) at official gatherings. If you'd like to play these games feel free to have a personal get-together.
What about Magic: the Gathering / Dungeons & Dragons / etc.?
(Beginning with 2019 we've started a D&D meetup. See below for more information.)
While getting established, we wanted to make sure the meetups where an inclusive, welcoming space for newcomers and marginalized people. Things are getting better, but the unfortunate reality is that these games can still be very exclusionary or even hostile to newcomers. As time goes by we'll expand into these areas and establish regular sessions for these types of games.
NEW! In 2019 we added a Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) meetup to the schedule. Due to the nature of role-playing games these work a little differently than the tabletop gatherings. During these early sessions things may change, but for the moment the plan is for me to run a starter campaign that is friendly to newcomers. We meet every 2nd Friday, 7pm - 9pm at the Kent Commons.
Which ruleset are you using?
Are there any limitations on what races/classes/spells/equipment/etc. can be played?
