Moving to the West Oak Hills area in mid August. Any board game groups in the area that I could join?

Welcome to Austin!

More gamers the better. He is a nice public repository of Austin gmaing information(everything but private game groups)

http://boardgamegeek.com/guild/23

I am a way northy(round rock), but the south side has an active community. You should have no problem meeting a group to your liking.

Go to The Rockin' Tomoto on Tuesday nights. It's located on South Lamar and Manchaca (pronounced man-shak). It's a board game friendly pizza joint. Lot's of great people there on Tuesday, and good food and beer.

There are also two FLGS within 200 yards of there.

Welcome to Austin. My sister lives in Oak Hill, that part of town has popped in the last several years.

If I had known it was harmless, I would have killed it myself.

Just FYI, you're going to just miss the Board Game Bash.

Welcome to Austin! I'm a north Austinite myself, but I can tell you that you're moving to a city with a very lively tabletop gaming scene no matter what part of the city you're in.

I will second the recommendation of South Austin Game Night - it's a great group and the person who runs (Jonathan) it is super friendly.

Yes welcome !! we have lots of meetups.. and if you bribe us with foodstuffs and money and what have you .. and you are a nice person .. you might even get invites to one of the many crowds of private gaming throughout the county


( On 2nd thought, you don't even have to be a nice person, because I get to go to 4 sets of private gaming on a reg basis, and I am not. hehehe)
