Hey, anyone in the Tampa area into boardgames? I live in S Tampa, and my girlfriend and I play regularly, but we don't have many friends into it ... I'd love to meet some new people

Hi!
I am in a very active group that plays in Tampa regularly. Most of our members live in the Clearwater area (near US19, just south of Palm Harbor and that general area)
I happen to live in Spring Hill and make the painful drive , but it is worth it! laugh Great bunch of gamers and usually there is at least one game night per week.
Check out the group website, and please, apply for membership. One of our moderators John Fade and Chris Marx will gladly put you in and you can join discussion, find a time slot and place that appeals to you.
In fact we are set to play tonight in Tampa....tempting, isn't it...?
surprise
Link below...
Hope to see you, or at least hear from you!
Justin

Hey!
I live in Spring Hill, so i am not too far from you!
We mostly game around the Tampa/Clearwater area...I know, the drive is a bitch for me...but worth it!
great bunch of guys, tons and tons of games and alot of laughs.
Only problem is, we tend not to play too much minis and RPG's are loved, but we just never seem to organize for that. We play mostly boardgames and some card games...
If you are still interested, head over to our group's page and join in on the discussion!

I'm a member of the Florida Suncoast Gamers that meet every Wednesday at Hobby Town in Brandon. We play from 6:00-9:00 PM and play mostly Eurogames. In addition, we have a large collection of Mayfair Games thanks to our local Mayfair Games representative. In addition, we have a Game Day on the 2nd Saturday of every month from 10 AM-Closing. We are a very diverse group and all are welcome! In addition, we have contacts of gamers that live across both the Bay area and Central Florida.

Hey All.
I am in Riverview and will be trying out the Brandon group come Saturday. I used to play RPGs like Cyberpunk, D&D and AD&D. I currenty own Arkham Horror, Runebound, Lord of the Rings, and Axis and Alies. I have tried to bring my wife into the world or board games and computer MMORPGs with no luck. So, I hope that this groups works out.

Jay,

Hi, we have a small group of people that meet in S Tampa on occasion. We do not have a set day or time we play as we usually just send out an email to see who is free.

If you are interested (or anyone else in Tampa), feel free to drop me a line.

Thx

We game at my house on saturday nights. I used to go to the Games Days but my job now requires me to work on saturdays and I can't attend.

We play most of the FFG games here as well. Love 'em!

If you have interest in mini-gaming or want to meet some nice folks, also check of Silver Dragon Games in Tampa. I'm not associated with the store, but the owner always goes out of his way to be helpful. I think they're more RPG and minis, but they carry some good board games and if you call a day ahead of time he can order most anything.

I am moving to Lithia (SE of Tampa) this summer. It looks like there is plenty of Eurogamers, but is there any wargamers or groups in the area?

I know its tough breaking into local groups--like its a secret society or something, especially since most wargamers have lots of personality. But just thought I would ask?

Cheers,

H6

This is just what I was looking for. I'm moving to Tampa next week. I'm actually starting the drive tomorrow, so I'll probably be off the geek until I get situated. I've been running a local games night in Santa Barbara, CA for over 3 years now. I'm very much into gaming (you can see a sampling of my collection and proclivities on my profile). I've applied to the yahoo group, and will definitely check out Armada games when I get into town.

My current top 10:
1) 18GA--A fairly generic 18XX (ala 1870) homebrew
2) Puerto Rico
3) Dune
4) Railroad Tycoon
5) Agricola
6) Brass--The new hotness, we'll see how it holds up
7) Dominion--as above
8) Power Grid
9) War of the Ring
10) Antike

I like a pretty diverse spread of games. I'm interested in minis and wargames as well.

Randy

I see that you found the Clearwater gamers list. While I've never gamed with them (just can't make it across the bay) they seem like a great group!

If you are looking for something more local, and smaller lemme know.

Any Tampa groups that play board games looking for new blood? I mostly play with the family now... but they're not always up for it.

I live in the Carrollwood area north of Tampa.

Hi all. Anyone in the west Pasco/Hernando area? Id prefer to meet some people relatively close to home. With work and family I dont really have time for frequent round trips to Tampa/St Pete.

Im mostly into mini games and RPGs. Dont really care for the euros.

Very useful info, thanks. I'll soon be visiting Tampa and have already contacted the group.

Hope we can do some gaming!
