Hello,

I am moving to Sherbrooke very soon and I know about the great Le Griffon game store, but beyond that I don't have any gaming connections in the city or surrounding area. I would be interested in finding a gaming group to meet every week or so. I am interested in all types of games (eurogame, wargame, card game, etc.), so either reply to the thread or send me a private message to touch base.

Je suis bilingue aussi, donc c'est possible d'arranger des rencontres en francais.

I run a monthly gaming group called Border Board Games that meets every 3rd Saturday evening. Each month we meet at the Derby Line village hall and begin at 5pm and play until about 11pm. Derby Line is a village in Vermont that shares a border with Stanstead, QC. The village hall is literally right beside the US route 5 customs station.

I've been running the group for years and we currently attract anywhere from 10 to 18 gamers each month, including many from Canada. We play all sorts of games.

Our next game night will be this Saturday, August 20th. We won't have a game night in September but will be back at our regular schedule in October where we will celebrate Halloween early by playing horror and monster themed games. Also in October is a 12 hour game day in Newport, VT called Fall-loha.

Derby Line is about a 45 minute drive from Sherbrooke.

Darn, I just took a week's vacation near Stanstead and played Hansa Teutonica and The Grizzled several times with family. Went into Newport last Wednesday for groceries and to have a look around.

Next year I'll probably be in the area again and perhaps we can hook up and play something.

Cheers,
Jack

Next year, if it is the third Saturday, we should be playing at the Derby Line Village Hall Also, Small Town Hobbies in Coventry (just outside Newport), has begun hosting open gaming Saturdays beginning at noon.

I read up on this border-straddling historic building - it sounds very cool. I'd love to game in such a neat place.

I'll definitely keep all this in mind for next summer...meeple

Salut Justin,
moi aussi je suis à la recherche d'un groupe pour jouer à des jeux à sherbrooke et j'aime tous les styles de jeux. Fais moi signe s'il y a du développement afin de former un groupe.
