My friend recently moved to Austin, and has no friends or people to play with! She is a smart lady with a Masters degree, in her mid/late twenties, but isn't super intense with games. She likes most types of games (but hasn't played much Ameritrash as far as I can tell - mainly euros, and nothing too heavy, but I think she could probably handle and enjoy the heavy stuff once she worked up to it.)

Games she enjoys include Pandemic, Istanbul, Carcasonne, Catan with expansions, the Harry Potter Deck-Building Game and more!

Does anyone know a good place for her to meet up? It can be a little intense to meet people and she'd love a great place to start!

Thanks

When I pass through Austin, I like to go to the Emerald Tavern Game Cafe and Dragon's Lair game store. They both seem active, have decent play space, and appear to have regulars.

To be fair, this is the Southeast Forum, so All but maybe Kentucky and Arkansas Austins could probably be removed from your list.

I just moved to Austin (TX) and found some leads on gaming groups in the guild for Austin. It led to some game store and Meetup links.

You also could try posting in the Southwest forum, which is the one that covers TX.
