Hi all,

I got a few business trips coming up that will bring me to Alpharetta, Georgia a few times until the end of this year. Although I am not sure yet how the travel plan looks like exactly and how much time I have on some of the evenings I thought I reach out and see if there are any local gaming groups in the are a to meet?

You should try to time one of your trips with DragonCon in Atlanta (late August or early September). I don't know much about the game scene in Alpharetta but if you happen to visit Greenville, SC 2 hours away there are gaming nights at our FLGS, Boardwalk Games.

Check out http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-35/. They meet on the 4th Sunday and 2nd Monday of each month. It also has links to the awesome Atlanta Game Fest which will be Oct 2-5.

Cyrill,

I host a monthly meetup in Johns Creek, which used to be part of Alpharetta. We meet on the 4th Sunday of the month at a local restaurant. There is also an active group that meets every Saturday evening in Norcross, also close to Alpharetta. You can find both of us on Meetup.com.

Thanks for asking the question, I actually live in Alpharetta and never thought to ask it myself.

If these other great suggestions don't fit your schedule please feel free to send me a message, my work schedule isn't often conducive to consistent gaming group nights but I'm always appreciative of a gaming opportunity.

Alpharetta has no active meet ups that I know it, but there are many meet-ups in the neighboring towns. My usual go-to-source for all Atlanta area meet-ups appears down at the moment. http://www.gameswellplayed.com/store/meetups/ I'll pester the owner.

Also, I host a Tuesday evening group at my house. Contact me directly when you know your schedule and we'll see what can be worked out.

David

Edit: BTW: "Neighboring towns" is 10-15 minutes by car, unless it's rush hour.

Hey - I think I know most of the people replying here for some reason....

To echo what dcorbin said - there's (oddly) not much in the Alpharetta area right now. There's a lot going on in other suburbs around here... but most of it seems to hover around the perimeter, up to the northeast a bit or northwest... or further south. I'm sure it's only a matter of time before something exists in Alpharetta again, but until then, the suggestions made here are your best options. I would tell you to message me when you come to town and I can point you in the direction of a game session I'll be at... but the posters above pretty much covered the places I go already.

(Hello up there, everyone)

thank you all so much for all the great information I will know the exact schedule soon and hopefully get in touch with some of the groups. Maybe indeed I might be there for dragoncon which I've heard a lot of great things about.

Again thanks a lot guys!

Dragon*Con is quit an experience. There is a lot of gaming, but I spend most of my time at other things (people watching, panels, etc.) rather than gaming. There are plenty of better places to game.

I know this is an old thread, but I just wanted to drop in and say thank you all for this valuable information. I just moved to Alpharetta from Indianapolis a few weeks ago. Had a super group of people I would play games with on a regular (Pathfinder, Board/Card Games and just hangout with sometimes). Now, not so much. Never tried a meet up before, but I'm willing to check it out. Again, thanks everyone!

If your'e not busy this weekend, get on down to Atlanta Game Fest (atlantagamefest.com). IT's going on now and you'll meet a ton of great local gamers (and a few not so local, but still great).
