Gloomhaven with? That is where I find myself, my girlfriend isn't into board games right now, and no one else I know is into board games, and I really, really want to play Gloomhaven. So what do you do? Well I've posted on reddit, on two different subreddits, and someone suggested I should post on here looking for people.

So that is what I am doing, so if you live in Las Vegas NV, I'm in the Summerlin area, and are looking to play Gloomhaven let me know. I'd love to speak with you and see if we could get a group to play it together. 1-3 people would be awesome.

I apologize if this isn't an appropriate post for here, I wasn't really sure where else to post this. Thanks for your time, and consideration, please excuse any typos and grammatical errors, due to an inner ear thing I'm on medication so my balance is a bit off, and my monitor won't stop moving, but we must game on!

See if your local game store has play groups. Make additional friends based on your shared interest in this hobby.

That said, if you are dabbling at ththe edges of being a board gamer and are just now discovering board game geek ..... I am excited for you. This is unquestionably the center of the universe as far as board gaming goes. I can't think of anything like it with any other hobby or interest.

That's a great idea, I'm sort of not allowed to drive right now due to the inner ear thing, and the way the world kind of wobbles now.

My current gf really got me into it, I kind of stumbled into buying Arkham Horror years, and years ago then never playing it. Followed by buying Cthulu Wars, and never playing it. But I'm hoping to break that trend by playing the heck out of Gloomhaven, so spirits are high!

Thanks for your suggestion and response.

You could also try joining meetup.com, there may be gaming groups that already meet in your area. That's how I found a number of gaming nights in Toronto.

There's not a lot of action at this guild, but it's worth a try given your predicament.

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Post a message in the forum there and maybe you'll wake them up for a moment.

I'm in the same situation. My wife is my board game partner, but 7 wonders Duel and mansions of madness is the most i'll see her play. So, sadly, i bought Gloomhaben for solo play. Maybe 9ne day i'll join meetup and try & find a bg group. Good luck!!

This is not really a gateway game. If you want to get your GF into boardgames I suggest Castle Panic, or Ghost Busters for co-op games. Take that games Scavengers an Chaos and Alchemy.

If you wish to skirt the rules a bit this could be a gateway game with you coaching your GF. You are playing both characters with your GF watching.

Oh she's a gamer, she's been a board gamer for a long while now, she got me into gaming we've played Legendary many variations of it, Arkham Horror LCG, Warhammer Quest, Mansions of Madness and more. She's just not into gaming "right now" she's not in the mood so to speak. All the other people I know are her friends, and my friends are all into video games and not much else.

So I'm trying to find people who would be interested in playing Gloomhaven with me because she's not all that into it. Sorry for the confusion, I probably didn't express myself well.

Lonny,

There is a pretty big boardgaming community in Las Vegas.

Little Shop of Magic - open gaming
Meepleville Café - open gaming

There is a big convention coming up in March. Link below for more info

https://tabletop.events/conventions/meeplecon

I have Gloomhaven on order so plan on getting my gaming group into it in the near future. Although we have started a Seafall campaign right now.

BTW - I'm in N.Summerlin myself.

Yeah she frequents Little Shop of Magic, she goes there on Saturdays I believe. She's also in the middle of Seafall campaign with her room mates, and friends. Thanks for the suggestion and the link I will check it out.

Lonny, have you considered playing solitaire?
Gloomhaven is a cooperative game and so it is easy to control two or more heroes and play against the game.
If you don't know much about solitaire gaming, I suggest you take a look at the 1 Player guild.
There is a forum full of friendly people if you have questions and want other game recommendations.

I grew up in Vegas mostly in southern Summerlin and down south on Rainbow and 215 and have never heard of this Con. I might need to make a visit.

The guys from Dice Tower - Tom Vasal and gang attended last year as well as Rahdo(sp) (another guy who does a bunch of video reviews). The Con's first year was last year and this one is supposed to be even bigger. Was a good turnout last year so expecting same or better this year. Couple of game companies are also in the area as Iello attended.
