We have Settlers of Catan, Apples to Apples, Killer Bunnies (which I have no idea how to play) and Kinder Bunnies, Gloom, Carcassone, and multitudes of the 'regular' dice and card games. I tend to hover on the boardgamegeek here and invested in some of the games over Christmas and have a couple of the print and play games - some of the simpler ones.

The local library used to have a drop in game night, but is no longer continuing that and I have given up on getting my husband interested, or to even look up from the TV and his phone, but sometimes some friends and I get together and we will play together(my kids are 12, 9 and 7 and we will often play together and they LOVE playing Ticket to Ride: First Journey and Small Worlds 2 on the tablets on Pass n' Play (I have not been able to afford those table games..yet but at least it is teaching us how to play it)).

We are a bit of a quirky and geeky group, and not terribly rowdy - and the neighbours are going to try to teach us Munchkin at some point. But if someone has some of the games but nobody to play with and want to get their kids more involved in gaming...would there be interest?

A wife that cannot get her husband to play??

It's the world upside-down!



I hope you find people.

I am in Regina, not Prince Albert, but I hope you are able to connect with some people.

Have you considered approaching a local restaurant or community hall or something to set up a weekly or monthly games night/afternoon that you could promote widely in PA and have people drop in and play?

Nice to see someone else from PA on here! My wife tolerates my hobby and enjoys playing the odd game with me. My 11 year old is slowly getting into games since I've been buying more kid friendly ones.

I have a Friday night group and not a lot of time, but if you see some games that interest you in my 'for trade' list, let me know. I would be willing to part with most of them for very reasonable prices! Anything to not have to ship them.

I hear you on time. Between work, soccer and girl guides always on the go! But it is good downtime and a good way to get the teens talking and involved.

Hey Amber

Tere is a new Board game night every Friday at Plaza 88 ( old coop) feel free to swing by, There is an entry fee of $5 just to cover the cost of getting new games. Its small now but it will be nice to build a good group of people to play. There is also a canteen that sells snacks (pop, water, tea, popcorn, candy, candy bars)

Entry fee is 10 dollars to help defray the cost of the winner's ticket to the National Championships in Toronto.

Here are some facebook links
Amazing Stories on May 12th (10 AM start)

I'm sorry...my summer went stupid busy.

Game night is going great! Things seem to Flux as people move or extra curricular activities but we are having fun.

We are really getting into Catan, Carcassonne and Gloom...we super low key people. I never get to saskatoon. Ever

I actually did message you about some of your games. I am interested in some (I'm not creepy.. I swear...depending on your view of the interpretation. Just possibly unexciting).

Especially betrayal, mysterium and a few others.
