I frequent Prince George mid-week every week and was looking for some people who may want to game. I'm not into mini's but pretty much am open to any other boardgame.

anyone else in PG got some games on the shelves gathering dust due to a lack of players that they would like to crack open again?

I may even be able to get a larger room (small classroom) we could use for free.

As I said tho, the only catch is I'm only available Tuesday & Wednesday nights for now.

I organize a fairly regular thursday night gaming sesion, 2-4 guys. We are always looking for new blood ... and new games to play. Currently we play from a selection of approx. 15 Eurogames. Our favorites include: Settlers, El Grande, Elfenland, Memoir 44, Niagra, Puerto Rico, Through the desert, T & E, Ticket to Ride, Cartagena, Rail Barons and Carcassone. Still waiting to break out my newly aquired copy of Dune ;P I'll send you a PM and maybe we can pull you in .. we could possibly move our day to Wednesday as nothing is holding us to Thursdays.
Cheers, Matt

Sorry for being of no use to the original poster, but I had to chime in here. I'll be finishing school in August and looking for a job. My wife has a sister in Prince George and a brother in Vanderhoof. I was thinking that if we ended up moving to PG I would have to post on BGG to see if there were any PG gamers. Then I thought ... nah, there wouldn't be anyone. Just goes to shows how small minded I am!

There are gamers everywhere .. it's just a matter of making those connections. I have been reading BGG for countless years but it wasn't until recently I started an account .. I am definitely happy that I did.
With todays internet fixated society most gamers ahve went into online gaming .. I admit I used to play WoW .. but I still played games with my rl friends. If you hit PG give me a call and I can see if I can throw together a games night. We try to play once a week .... but it usually works out to 2-3 times a month .... hence why I need more gamers in the group. I would love to have my once a week fix.
Cheers, Matt

I sent you a geekmail Matt just to let you know that I am not out of the picture yet. Things are starting to get back to normal so hopefully we can get together shortly. But I am still stuck to Tuesday or Wednesday nights for certain this summer.

Well Adam, I haven't had a chance to game with Matt since that first time. However, I am now moving to Prince George and will be looking for some more gamers. I should be up there and ready to game by mid October in our new house!

I hope ....

Ya, I'm still looking for some people to boardgame with as most of my friends are not really into it. Always down for it though.

Hey all. My Fiance and I just moved here in October. We were wondering if anyone had any groups in PG that did the gaming thing and lo and behold a short google search later here I am. We've only played Settler's, Ticket to Ride Europe, and the new ( I believe the name is) Settler's of America? Anyways, we are down for that kind of thing or something similiar.

Hopefully some traffic picks up at the site here.


Laters.

I am part of a group that is planning a RPG & board game convention for October 15th & 16th here in PG.

The convention will be at Grama's Inn (by Spruceland). Doors and board game room open at 9:00am, and RPG's start at 10:00am. LARP takes over the board game room just before 6:00pm. But you can play all day & check out the RGPs if you are interested. There will be a variety of them running.

Admission is $10/day or $15/weekend. Snacks & BOTTLED drinks can be brought in providing they stay downstairs in the convention area.

If you are on facebook, you can check us out by searching "Prince George Mini-Con".

We are also in the process of setting up a non-profit organization to help connect gaming groups - of both sorts. There will be another convention in the Spring (this is the Mini, the Spring will be the NPO's AGM as well as a bigger convention) By Spring, we should have the membership base for the NPO set up to start the connection process.

Free membership with the NPO will give access to a database of gamers in PG & northern BC. The paid membership will grant voting privilages at meetings. All meetings are open to the public.

I've been trying to keep an eye out for gamers in Prince George without much luck. I'm not into minis either, but am into trying new boardgames.

Some of the games I own include Arkham Horror, Cosmic Encounter, Killer Bunnies, Last Night on Earth and Shadows Over Camelot. A couple of them I haven't even had a chance to play yet.

If anything is being scheduled regularly I would be interested in hearing more about it. Feel free to send me a PM.

Thought I would bump the thread .....

My old crew of gamers bit the biscuit ... but I am willing to meet up once a month or so for a night of gaming. I have a solid selection of games myself and could probably drag one or two of my gaming buddies back into the fold. Life gets pretty busy when you have kids .
Looking forward to see what response this post brings.
Cheers, Matt

Hello World

Is anybody still active on this thread? I am addicted to board games and am wondering if there are any others out and about in PG that might be interested in getting togeter periodically for a game. Bi-weekly would probably be best for me but I'm happy to join into a group that is already meeting if there is one.

Some of my current favourites include Dominion, Pandemic, Settlers, Ticket to Ride, etc.

Any takers?

Ana

I have a ton of unplayed games and lots of other games I'd like to see played. I have wanted to set something up with others on this thread, but for one reason or another something seems to keep coming up which keeps preventing me from getting together with gamers in this thread. It's all on me too, not anyone else.

One of these days I'm hoping something slows down so I can get to be part of a regular gaming group. Right now I have a vacation coming up and I'm coaching high school football, which along with work is keeping me pretty tied up. Not to mention my own daughters' activities and other family obligations.

In the meantime my games collection keeps growing ('cause you know it is still easy to buy games!) and keeps gathering dust!

Edit: typos
