Celebrating over 7 years of gaming goodness!
Atomic Squash is dedicated to keeping in touch with old friends and meeting new ones through teaching board games and supporting the adventure game hobby.
What is an Atomic Squash anyway?
1. A radioactive gourd used to make your vegetable melody more colorful.
2. A collaborative effort to promote social interaction by teaching board games and supporting the adventure gaming hobby throughout the Midwest focused in the St.Louis/Metro East area.
It was originally created as an excuse for friends to meet and play games more than once or twice a year. That quickly changed as the group opened itself up to anyone willing to come out and play a game. Still local in consentration Atomic Squash now has friends all over North America. Play a game with us and whether you like it or not you are a member.
Our primary focus is on American and European style Board Games. On most Mondays nights we meet at a local game store named Heroic Adventures in Edwardsville Illinois. Here we play and teach games like Settlers of Catan, Carcasonne, La Havre, Dominion, or whatever new game that becomes available. We start at 6pm and play games until Midnight. These events are always open to the public and are free.
Board Game Library
Atomic Squash currently has a traveling board game library with close to 60 titles. These titles support 5 area conventions, Atomic Squash weekly board game days, the Metro East Meetup Board game events, and Various other Game Days and Events. We try to make these games available to as many gamers as possible during the year. We are always taking donations to the Atomic Squash board game library.
In addition to our weekly Monday meetings we have written and ran original games for local conventions and GenCon. These have mostly been based on the Spycraft and Kobolds at my Baby game themes.
Having our roots started in gaming with Role Playing Games, we also support that side of the gaming hobby. Currently there are no Atomic Squash RPG groups
Supporting local gaming is important to Atomic Squash. We attend and support conventions such as Anime St. Louis, Archon, Diecon, Geekway2theWest, and Gencon. We do this by providing board game library support and sponsoring various other convention events.
