The Tabletop Revolution gaming group is dedicated to growing the hobby of designer board gaming. This includes card games, board games, miniature games and role playing games. In other words, tabletop gaming.

We meet every Saturday and have a sister group that meets Wednesday evenings as well.

Check us out on Meetup, Facebook and our BGG Guild.

Very good group that makes you feel welcome. There are a TON of games in the library to play. There is usually someone willing to play something you might have of your own that you can never seam to get to. Meetings are usually weekly.

The group does seam to enjoy and focus on Euros. I think I'm a rare exception to the group that enjoys and prefers war games and games with objectives over points.

I usually go 1-2 times a month or when the weather is not that great for outdoor summer activities.

If you see me signed up for a day feel free to look over my collection here on BGG and tell me to bring something.

Good to know, I'll be moving to Providence in the near future. I will check it out once the dust from the move has settled!

Third weekend of each month is my war game group. I think I'm spending the 23rd hiking.

The 30th is labor day weekend so that means the Portuguese festival in my home town Cumberland. BTW....everyone should go to this for the food beer and wine it is phenomenal.

My next table top I will probably be at is Sept (sadly). BUT!!! I would love to play Robinson Crusoe some more then. I'm loving the game it's brilliant.

Or I would even be down for more Mage Knight, or Steam.

That's awesome if your primarily a war gamer so am I. I am definitely in the minority for that in Tabletop.

I highly enjoy Tabletop meetings they cure my itch for Euros and ameritrash.

Take a look through my collection I have some great war games. Hopefully we can get a chance to meetup.

TTR had a great turnout for the TotalCon End of Summer Sizzler. It was a fun event. Played some new games and met some new people. Personally, I got to play a prototype of Ben's and enjoyed it immensely. My son, Xander, got into the Catan tournament and had a blast.

The "Game Day at the Y" events occur every Saturday at 1:00. Turnout gas been good but we'd love to see new members come and new games get to the tables!

The Tabletop Revolution is hosting an Extra Life charity event with the folks from The Cardboard Jungle podcast. It will be a 24 hr event starting on 10/25. See the link below for some details.

http://www.meetup.com/thetabletoprevolution/events/209280092...

Check out the Meetup page for events. We also post items of interest on our Facebook page.

We look forward to seeing everyone on Saturdays!

We've got an extended Gameday at the Y coming up this weekend. Basically when Art starts his vacations he likes to do a Gameday that stays late. Last year it went until 5:30 am. Don't expect to play that long this weekend but we'll definitely be staying later than the normal 10 pm end time.

The MeetUp event link is below:

We've had some great new gamers lately to compliment the great group we already had. We look forward to seeing everyone!

Appearances will be made by Kanban, Evolution, The Castles of Mad King Ludwig, Patchistoory, Five Tribes, Heroes Wanted, Panamax, Sheriff of Nottingham, Machi Koro, Imperial Settlers, Abyss, Sentinel Tactics, Lords of Xidit, Tiny Epic Kingdoms, Diamonds, Among the Stars, Seventh Hero and City Hall.
