Just moved to Poughkeepsie, and I'm looking for folks to play some games with. I'm pretty open as to what type of game, I enjoy all sorts. Anything going on evenings/weekends in Poughkeepsie, New Paltz, Beacon, etc?

I just moved to Poughkeepsie as well (although I'm out of town for the summer). I'd be interested in getting a group together - I didn't see much on BGG or other meet-up sites when I was looking around. I know you said you're up for most genres, but are there any games in particular that you interested in playing?

Welcome to the area, Adam! I live in Poughkeepsie also, and I'd be interested in exploring a potential gaming group, as well. I used to be part of an RPG group that met regularly for a few years -- IBM'ers and college faculty folks. Some of them might be interested. There are probably already existent groups, too. I know that the local game store, Dragon's Den, used to have a gaming night. Lately, though, it seems like the store is always devoted to MtG tourneys. Feel free to geekmail me, if you'd like to try and get something off the ground.

There's a SUNY campus at New Paltz. Its webpage lists a Gaming Society among the student clubs.

I'm a bit out of the loop at the moment but will try to see if we can make something happen in a few weeks.

A few of us met up and played a few games last night, and it was excellent. If anyone else in the area sees this thread and is interested, things are happening!

Hey every, for people who want gaming in Mid-Hudson area, please check these meetups out:
http://www.meetup.com/Fishkill-Gamers/
http://www.meetup.com/Mid-Hudson-Gamers-Geeks/

There was also a Beacon group to which isn't meeting now. And there was a thread on here about gaming in the Mid-Hudson area I can't find now. I think the Den is also open for gaming.

If you are closer to Westcherer, check this group out. They hold an annual Labor Day weekend event every year:
http://www.westchestergaming.org/

And there are meetings in Connecticut also.


Another thing, please feel free to send me a message here also, if you want more info.

My hope is that we get enough gamers together so people can always find people to play with what they want, and we get a regional convention to be large enough that it would be really good to attend. With the convention at West Point going into parts unknown, we have been limited. I know Vassar runs stuff, but the boardgame side is week. It would be good for the winter to have. I am really rooting for the Westerchester Gaming Group's Labor Day Event to get large also.

And of course, as a game designer, I have a selfish interest in having enough people to playtest stuff.

Hi - apologies for dredging up an old thread, but my wife and I live in New Paltz and are looking for fellow board gamers (we used to have a group here, but everyone moved away) to meet up with. We like to play games like Carcassonne, Catan, Ticket to Ride, and Agricola. We also enjoy party-type games like Scategories, Cards Against Humanity, and Wits and Wagers. Hoping to meet up with other folks who enjoy playing these types of games as well. If there is an upcoming game night, please let me know!

Welcome (back)!

I'm over in Red Hook. The two groups mentioned by Doc earlier in the thread are still active: Mid-Hudson Gamers & Geeks; Fishkill Gamers.

http://www.meetup.com/Fishkill-Gamers/
http://www.meetup.com/Mid-Hudson-Gamers-Geeks/

I think there's a gaming night via Fishkill Gamers on Superbowl Sunday coming up.

I am located in the Hopewell Area and would love the chance to play some of my games a little more regularly. I am mostly available during weekday evenings. If anyone has anything going, or wants to start something, let me know! I am interested in playing mostly anything.

This is an old thread, but if anyone in the area is looking, we just got back from House Rules Cafe in Hudson. Very clean, people very nice, $5 to game (waived if you spend $45 on food from the cafe). As I understand it, Friday night is their event night, and they're also doing something special next Saturday April 28th.
