Hey folks, I'm pretty new to the Geek but as the title says I'm looking for some kind of gaming group in the Delta, 72nd/Scott Road area. There arn't any major game stores around here besides Craving for a Game at Surrey Central and I'm not super fond of their crowd for very specific reasons.

I'm up for the old board and card games, but also I dabble in Pathfinder for the tabletop persons.
Does anyone have any suggestions or can point me in the right direction?

I live close by and am always up for more board games, but since I don't know of any group openings nearby, a possibility might be to form a new group. I'd be interested in this.

ANYONE CLOSE TO THE N.D. AREA WANT TO FORM A NEW GAME GROUP?

There are also regular meet-ups at Board Game Warriors in New West on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday as an alternative. Might be a good place to draft interested people.

I'm also new to the North Delta area and have been trying to find others interested in playing games. I'd be down for joining a gaming group. I'm in the Delsom Community at Nordel and 84th Ave.

Aren't Nordel and 84th parallel? Or do you mean where 84th curves?

I host a weekly games' night at my house in ND with a particularly idiosyncratic group of people. I'm definitely open to inviting new people, but I'd probably want to meet them first.

I'm all over making/joining a new group, but what do you mean specifically by idiosyncratic? (AP prone, super aggressive or competitive, alpha gamer, hygiene issues etc. etc.) Not super keen on getting together with difficult to deal with folk, I'm just there for the games and some fun.

Quite a mix, but medium and heavy Euros mostly. For example, last week we were playing Viceroy, Terra Mystica, Kemet, and Castles of Mad King Ludwig. The week before it was Roll for the Galaxy, Core Worlds, Mysterium, and 7 Wonders. Before that was Eldritch Horror, Tribune: Primus Inter Pares, and Glory to Rome. You get the idea.

Sorry, I realize now that that phrase could be misunderstood. No hygiene issues, no super aggressive/competitive people, maybe a bit of AP when the game is tough. Perhaps I meant 'idiosyncratic' insofar as they are not typical smelly gamers. Most of us know each other quite well (we all go to the same parish church). Although everyone is friendly, I suppose some people could be uncomfortable about being the odd man out.

I’m in Richmond but have no problem driving, would be interested in another game group

Interested in both euros and ameritrash, medium to heavy. The only thing I’m not much interested in are the party type games.

Would just depend when it was scheduled

Looks like lots of interest. I am away this weekend but am very interested in this potential group so please keep us all posted with new dates and times. I am located near Sungod Arena and can possibly accommodate a games night. Looking forward to meeting some of you in future.

Thanks for the interest gents, I will definitely post again when we schedule another game night. Typically we are about a once a month group, but by all means that can change.
