A friend of my daughter's is on temporary assignment for a few months in Utrecht. He would like to find a group at which he could play games. Can anyone suggest who he might contact?

Thank you!

It would probably be a good idea to go to the gamestore called "The Joker" in Utrecht. Besides from being e pretty good store I know they organize Diplomacy gatherings quite regularly. They could probably also be able to help you find some other gamers.

They're situated at:
Oudegracht 230a, 3511 NT Utrecht

Eric, I second the recommendation for the Joker (contact info and pics: http://www.spelmagazijn.nl/nl/winkel01.html). When my wife and I moved to the Netherlands in 1996, I found plenty of Magic players there and played a few times on tables set up near the canal. When we visited in October 2006, the guys behind the counter made us coffee and talked with us for 90+ minutes.

I can't promise coffee, but the store has tables in the basement and a great game selection. I'm sure they know where to find gamers in the city...

There is also a small Game convention in Utrecht called Ducosim. The next one is held on 19th May (http://www.ducosim.nl/nieuw/wiki.php?id=464) Here you can play games, buy games and meet other gamers.

As Utrecht is only half an hours drive to Amsterdam, I would welcome him as a player on one of the game evenings at Gamepack's HQ. More info on who we are and what kind of games we play and when, and lots of(English written) reviews on the latest games you can find at

An advantage of the Ducosim convention is that there will be a number of gaming groups.

The Ducosim website als has links to many of the game groups in the area.
