I have worked out a deal with my partner that we will each get a night off from the kids every other week. I am looking to fill that time with some gaming.

I seek some information on gaming groups in the twin cities. I am aware of several shops that have regular gaming;
Village Games
Loadstone
FFG Event Center
Level Up
Goat
Tower

What I am curious about is people experiences of randoms (myself) being able to drop in for some games on a unspecified evening. Any particularly good evenings during the week? Any great games I should look into.

I have played lots of games in the past but have had very little in the past 5yrs with the kiddos. I like competitive and cooperative games not as familiar with LCG but a quick learner. I enjoy games that that are apporx 1-2hr long but will also settle in for a long haul game if appealing. I also live in North MPLS if that is helpful with recommendations.

Any help or experiences are helpful.

I also have debated about drop in on some of the D&D 5e Adventure Leagues but I dont want to RP all the time. If people have experences with that I am also interested, never done it before.

Thanks in advance BGGers.

This is a bit west of Minneapolis, but the Wright County Geeks host a game night on the 2nd Friday of each month at the Buffalo Community Center at 6:30 pm. We are currently running Adventurers League and I personally bring about 30 of my board games each month. Other people also bring games as well.
