I will be travelling to Ottawa on business from Nov 27 to Dec 3rd. I don't often travel on business, and so this presents an opportunity for me to game every evening, unburdened from my usual family responsibilities

I'd like to find a game group meetup and play every night if I can. Can anyone help me plan this out and help me fill up as many evenings with board game bliss as possible? I'm a board game generalist, so I'd prefer if events weren't of a specific game, i.e. Magic, Warhammer, Scrabble, Bridge etc., but I'll take all suggestions. Thanks!

Hi there. How will your transportation situation be once in Ottawa? Many of the game meetups are in the suburbs. Will you have a car when in Ottawa?

The meetup site has several gaming meetups:

https://www.meetup.com/cities/ca/on/ottawa/games/

One good group that has a lot of players (35 to 50+) is the Ottawa Boardgaming community. They meet twice a week (sunday evening on Bank street and Monday evening way off on Greenbank road in Barrhaven):

If you arrive in Ottawa early on Sunday, there will be gaming until 5 PM in Gatineau at an annual gaming event called LudoOutaouais:

There are a lot of other groups which other people will tell you about.

I frequent Monday nights in Barr Haven (30-40 mins from downtown) and Thursday night in Kanata (also 30-40 from downtown) I know there are events on wednesday as well. The ontario forum should have details to all of these.

What time do you arrive on the Sunday? I'll be hosting games that day, PM me for details.

Hm... though a quick look at your ratings suggest you may tend towards liking lighter games than we tend to play -- we tend towards mid-to-heavy Euros.
