Trying this here, as most should be board gamers...

My wife and I are looking for a small group of people to play board games and d&d in Queens and Manhattan area, possibly once or twice a month on a regular basis.

Here are some of the board games that we own:

Catan
Scythe
Pandemic
Ticket to Ride
Lord of Waterdeep
Firefly
The Others
And many, many others

We love to learn and play all sorts of board games. We’ve tried a few Meetup groups to varying success.

Feel free to respond with your game lists and desire to organize something.

I'd be down for it but you know I live 3 states away. I'm sure you'll meet some new people and you won't need me anymore. HAHA!

Eva and Matt are good people and I've thoroughly enjoyed playing games with them when we can make the time to get together.

Have you tried Nyeek? It has a little bit of a social game (Codenames/Dixit/Avalon) bent but your collection fits solidly in what gets played there.

Have you tried this group?

https://www.meetup.com/queens-boardgames/events/237507219/

If not, I encourage you to give them a shot. Seats will fill up quickly so RSVP as soon as possible if you are even slightly interested.

It's an old and solid group that's trying out a new location, and the organizer has to pay for the space, so there's a modest charge of $5/person for attending.

I regularly attend and I know for a fact that these folks also arrange to game outside of the meetup with each other. I have my own small group culled from this meetup and we try to meet at least once a week at someone's home.

Show up, make some friends, and the invites will come.

It looks a bit daunting, given almost 3000 members. We are looking to build a smaller core group, but we may check this out. We still are trying through various MeetUps.

This one we can also look at. Another issue is trying to match set schedules, given we are both working professionals. (No, not THAT type)

Thanks for the suggestion! Also thanks to Mat628.

Thanks to anyone who participates. The last time I sought a group, I was in Florida and used LiveJournal of all things. (Don't knock it, it worked)

A couple of good suggestions already.

(Anyone who says MySpace gets shown to the airlock)

What a coincidence!

My wife and I are moving from Brooklyn to Upper Manhattan soon. At the same time, both of us are changing work hours. As a result, we won't be able to attend our regular meet ups. This is EXACTLY the type of thing I'm searching for. (Wife maybe not so much - her hours are gonna be crazy now).

Feel free to check out my collection. I do not have very much D&D experience, but if a beginner is ok with you, I'd definitely be interested.

There is actually a north Manhattan-specific meet up group as well.

Let me know how this goes. I just recently started a new job in Queens, so depending on the location, I might be able to offer my collection. I'm also a GM (Pathfinder is the most relevant here) and definitely can lead a group. Been going too long without a RPG session

I'm in Brooklyn, along the L train, but travel into Manhattan to play games and can do parts of Queens with ease, too. Unfortunately, I can't really host evening stuff because of my tiny apartment and young son, but I'd be interested in attending. I haven't played an RPG since high school, but enjoyed it then. Keep me posted!

The seating at 57th and 3rd, or Tribeca is a lot better than Bryant park. Just a suggestion.

Me and my wife will most likely be there tomorrow. Are you setting up a D&D campaign?

We're also bringing Mission: Red Planet. We just got the game yesterday. Played it once and it was lots of fun.

Looking forward to seeing you guys tomorrow.

We can certainly discuss. Eva just started playing D&D and likes it.

Looks like the possibility of a small but well formed group!

I have a music rehearsal in Washington Square that came up Just the other day (we are rehearsing for a friend's memorial service). I'll try to stop by afterward, but my apologies if I don't make it.
