Seeing if there are any weekend gaming groups/locations who play medium to medium heavy games on Saturdays or Sundays near Pleasanton, Dublin, or Livermore in the bay area.

I know you're looking for something more regular, but I grew up in the East Bay and come down to the Bay Area throughout the year to visit family (I'm in Portland now). I also have a group of friends I board game with whenever I'm in town. If you're interested, I can let you kwow when we get together.

Sure. Thanks. I met some guys I really enjoy playing with on Thursday nights, expanding my circle is always a positive though, so meeting your friends could possibly bring more opportunities. Thanks.

I believe that there is a group that plays games at Shari's in Livermore on Tuesday evenings -- I believe there is a Facebook page, but I'm not on Facebook and can't find it right now. That doesn't directly give you the weekend gaming you're looking for, but hopefully you can go and make some connections.

With a handful of kids, I can't do any regular weekend gaming, but we try to host game nights a few times a year. I'll add you to my geekbuddies and try to remember to invite you when we get around to our next one.

I think Black Diamond games in Concord is now the only store open since House of Games and that one in Livermore closed. Otherwise you have to go into Oakland or Berkeley. Its pretty sucky now for tri valley folks.


Thanks, yeah, I know there is some game store between Pleasanton and Walnut Creek in Danville, but I was hoping for something closer, maybe I'll have to drive out there on a Saturday and see if anything is going on.

House of Games is closing, oh wow, I think the final day is officially tomorrow. At least the announcement I saw a while back indicated it would be the 31st. Which yeah, sucks.

Not sure what type of games you are looking to play but if you are into historical/war games this would be a pretty good group to join.

Thanks. I actually have wanted to learn wargaming, so maybe I am a bit too blue for that group but it's good to know it exists in case I get some experience under my belt.

I'm in Pleasanton myself. It would be great to have at least a monthly group around here.

See my comment above about the weekly gathering at Shari's in Livermore. That's the best I can do for now, except for people who work at one of the labs.

. I saw on MeetUp that I guess there is a group that gets together at Galaxy Games in Dublin on Saturdays from noon to 6pm. I didn't go this weekend because of the local Con and I assumed it wouldn't be a true representation of the group. I am down for some weekend gaming, and

, if you are in the area, maybe we could put something together. I think Wednesday nights people get together at a Coffee Shop in Pleasanton and I've been twice but weeknights are just hard for me.

Weekly gaming on the weekends would be great. Any location or time preferences?

Character Cafe has games on their shelves for people to play, so its an environment that encourages game play.

I am not aware of anything getting started. I was in communication with somebody but we never met up, but I also got really busy with work, so that's partially my fault.

I am a member of the group that played Tuesdays at Shari's, now closed, and has moved to IHOP on First near 580. We generally meet around 530pm, eat as we arrive and break out to game based on arrival times and speed of food consumption. Some show up for the dinner and convo and then leave, some show when they estimate that chow is done and get right to gaming, some show up whenever they get off work, and some are there for the whole thing.

The FB group is called Tri-Valley Geeks and includes many fandoms including boardgamers.
