Newbies Welcome!
We are a friendly group of all kinds who play every type of board game. So why not visit to learn and play great games with great people?

Theme
Apparently there is some Canadian rock 'n roll band that pre-empted Olympic coverage on CBC....

Bring Your Kids (for Free!)
We are kid-friendly. Now that school is letting out, Kanata Board Gamers remind parents of bored board gaming kids that they are welcome to play here with us for free.Only a couple of more weeks 'till they go back...

Events Update:

Kanata Con: 16-17 September. Registrations are coming in! Remember to pre-order food to be sure you get. Check out all the details on kanataboardgamers.ca Registration opening soon! Added details about garage sale, food, tournaments, and yes - T-Shirts! Check out our facebook page (just google Kanata Con 2016 for the link).


Ottawa Geek Market: October. I haven't seen exact dates yet. Gaming there will be awesome, right Tracy?!

Events Roundup:


There is a meeting of the Kanata Board Gamers every Thursday; next one is 25 August 2016. The start time for the session is 6pm till approximately 11pm.

We meet at the Kanata Community Christian Reformed Church (KCCRC) at 46 Castlefrank Rd, which is beside the Hazeldean Public Library. There is parking outside. Just go straight through the doors facing the lot, and you can't miss us!


$2.50 will be collected from each person. The first $30 collected is donated to our gracious venue. Any left over will go into our board game library fund. Members can borrow from the library any time. Borrow it one session, bring it back for the next.

Visitors are always welcome. Come on in and check us out! There is no obligation, but if you decide to become a member it only costs $7.50 and entitles you to 10% discount cards at select local games stores.

Note if you want the discount cards (for Fandom II, Mrs. Tiggy Winkles, and Comic Book Shoppe), let Steve know, and he'll have them made up. 100% of the $7.50 fee goes to CanGames 2016 to support kids games, and the cards are good for 1 calendar year from the month you get them.

Feel free to use this forum thread to discuss what to play!

New to Ottawa for school, looking for a game club. What is the age range of your group, how many members per week do you get?

About 16-20 members a week I'd say, though Steve or Dan could probably give you more accurate numbers. Ages range "from 20-some to those sensitive about their age." - from the website FAQ.
