Here's a map of all the open board game gathering times I could find in New York State (excl. NYC/LI) and Vermont:



Reply below with any updates/additions that you know of (days, times, frequency), and I'll add them right away.

Why?
I happened upon two great game stores while on vacation and went back to participated in each of their open gaming times. It was fun to try new games and meet fellow gamers.

Only Board Gaming?
This does not include the many MTG and miniatures games. Most of these are at FLGS, but this does not replace the FLGS Map.

If this is useful, please consider helping me collect GG for an avatar.

it's tough finding board game stores/communities online. I tried to cover all of New York and Vermont. I know NYC has many gaming communities. Those are even harder to find, so I chose to limit myself. You can help.


If you're wanting to add the ones in NYC/LI I can provide a great many of them.

There are quite a lot in VT.

I run a group called Border Board Games. It meets every 3rd Saturday evening in Derby Line, VT. I have a webpage and facebook page with all the info. For August, we had to move the game night to the 4th Saturday. Otherwise, for the rest of the year, we should be playing every 3rd Saturday:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/borderboardgames/
https://sites.google.com/site/borderboardgames/home

For more gaming in VT, there is a great calendar on the Green Mountain Gamer's Facebook page. It lists a lot of tabletop gaming events in and around the state. You can use the filter to search for what you are looking for (i.e. look only for boardgames) - https://www.facebook.com/greenmountaingamers/app_10170931653...

If we're OK with 'private' game events (though ones that are open and welcoming to new participants), my wife and I host a weekly get together at our home.

Details:

Every Wednesday from 7-10:30pm (or so) in Barre, Vermont. No website for this, but my email address (redshark92@yahoo.com) and/or BGG ID can be used as a contact.

So you're not going to include open game nights that occur at game stores then?

Probably be best to keep them on both maps no?

Otherwise if someone is looking to play games in their area on a given night they'll have to always check both maps to see what their options are.

Next stop… THE WORLD! Mwahahahahaah.

But seriously.

Any reason not have this be a public project where everything is crowd sourced and user editable?

Those three stores don't have scheduled times for board gaming. Please correct me if I'm wrong. (I did add 8 or 9 stores to the world map.)

Yea, I can open it up for editing. It's a big wide world out there... Let's start with the Norteast.

Can threads be pinned? That might help it be found, used, and added to.

Ah, okay. Wasn't sure why they were being removed. That makes perfect sense.

Would love for this to get pinned, but unsure where that would happen ideally if the goal is to open it up geographically. Might want to pm Octavian and ask his thoughts.

I'm sure once it gets opened to even just the full US, let alone Globally that it would easily gain a feature in the Geek Weekly which will dramatically raise visibility wherever it resides in the forums.

This really is a brilliant idea. Kudos to you for taking the time to set it up and share it with the community!
