I forget: where in PA is Hanover? Near Pittsburgh? Philly? Harrisburg?

Can't help you, then. You're too far from Philly for me to recommend EPGS.

See:

The Harrisburg groups might be close enough for you.

If you don't mind going down south a little, the Sparks location of GCOM is nearby and is well attended:

That's the big issue of gaming in Pennsylvaina. Plenty of game shops, plenty of gamers, and plenty of space in between any of them. A whole bunch of empty going on in the Keystone state, even in large metropolitan areas, 30 - 60 minute drives are made by more than one attendee of whatever given event is in discussion.

Heck, there's three to four local groups I know of in Pittsburgh, but my schedule is just not working out with any of them. Any would be an hour drive for me, and it's gotten to a point where I've seen some board gamers I met in Erie, Pa. at a 3 hour drive more than I see Pittsburghers.

I do know there are a few people in the Gettysburg and York area who game. Most of the folks I game with are more into RPG's but I do manage to get board games on the table now and then. I managed to start them with card games like Munchkin, because of the RPG spoof theme, and gladly worked up to board games. Twilight Imperium, Cosmic Encounter, Funny Friends, Plunder, Monkeys on the Moon, Wings of War and Heroscape have all met with success and hit the table now and then.
If I didn't travel so much for work, I'd be glad to set up a game day. I hope to be back in the area over Thanksgiving, maybe we can get a chance to game then.

A couple come to mind. Penn Gamers (which I think now meets 2x a week), and PAGE (which I really do not know much about, apart from the name). It's a start.

If you're just north of Philly, you're probably very close to me.

I know a several gamers in the Gettysburg area. We get together to game as often as we can (not as often as I'd like!). Anyone who is interested drop me a line and we'll set something up.

Hi Mike,

I also just moved to Hanover, and a friend and I are also looking for people to play some games with us. We were thinking about trying to form a local board game club and posting fliers at the local library. What types of games do you typically like to play? Feel free to shoot me an e-mail at jonathan_shank@yahoo.com

Hi Jesse,

I just moved to the area as well. What types of games do you play, and when do you typically meet?

Thanks,

Jonathan

I live in Chambersburg, which is about 40 minutes away from Hanover and rather close to Gettysburg.

I work your average 8-5 job M-F but under the right circumstances may be able to meet a weekday evening or any weekend I'm in town.

send me a GM and maybe we can all meet up.

Robot, I know there are good number of gamers in area. I'm in Gettysburg and I've gone out to another bgg users house a couple of times downtown.

I've been thinking about starting up a game night on a biweekly basis, probably on a tuesday night. I'm looking at kicking it off after the new year. I'll send you a GM when I nail everything down.

Ah, the diabolical Dice … a word of caution; don't throw them when you're alone. The fiends lack loyalty, and their notion of nourishment is quite disturbing.
