Any Agricoholics in the Bay area? I moved to the Inner Sunset a couple months ago to start medical school, and I've been hankering to farm some cardboard ever since. I'm happy to host or travel within public transportation range. Shoot me a geekmail if you're interested!

Look up the good folks at Games of Berkeley (accessible from BART even), they have a weekly game night and likely have all sorts of 'wanted: players' ads adorning a corkboard somewhere.

Welcome to the neighborhood! If you ever get a hankering for tabletop wargaming, give me a shout.

So there's this really helpful list of local gaming groups and store communities: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1431166/i-made-guide-tablet...

There's also this very nice and active community that will connect you with all kinds of boardgamers 'round here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/511736492242541/

I find a lot of groups on meetup.com. Here's a couple of good ones where you'll probably find Agricola players:

SF Games group: http://www.meetup.com/boardgames-488/events/226287961/

Gamescape board game night: http://www.meetup.com/The-Geek-Collective-of-Gamescape-SF/ev...

Euro Gaming League: http://www.meetup.com/The-EGL/events/226360733/

There are more listed on that site. I've had lots of success with it.

The EGL plays Agricola. I even managed to get some to play a short game of Le Havre one night.

Quote:
The SF Games group meets on Sundays in the outer Richmond. Played Ora & Labora there once.

If you ever find yourself in the East Bay, the Alameda Board Gamers meet at a cafe on Park Street every Tuesday night. Agricola is just the sort of game that hits the table there (although last Tuesday it was one table of Automania and another of shorter games like Isle of Sky.)

Also, there are several conventions of boardgaming goodness out there.

Me, I make time for February's Dundracon and May's Kublacon.

There's a meetup group specifically for Agricola in the East Bay that I went to when I was living in the Bay Area. The cafe it meets at is a 5 minute walk from the Berkeley BART.

Whoa!? Which cafe? I'm around the corner from Park street and always thinking that the two days a week I play games is not enough!
