The Cleveland Board Games Meetup Group was originally founded on April 4, 2003. Since then, the group has had nearly 200 "official" meetings and countless gatherings off the books.
On May 10, 2008, in an effort to reduces website costs and gain greater exposure, the Cleveland Board Games Meetup Group became NEO Gamers, and moved its organizational website from Meetup.com to BoardGameGeek.
