I often times find myself in Oakland, CA on weekends staying with the in-laws. The wife gets to visit friends and family. The kids get to play with grandma and grandpa. I, however, don't get to have as much fun. I am wondering if there are any board game groups that meet in Oakland or Berkeley on Saturdays. If you wouldn't mind an extra player now and then, I'd love to come over and play with your group! I tried finding meetups for the area, but all of them seem to meet on weeknights. Help out a fellow gamer!

Mike

The Berkeley group has started a periodic Saturday wargame session, though their definition of wargame seems to be very broad...:

Doesn't Endgame have a Saturday thing from time to time? They do a weekend day once a month or so, but I forget whether it's Saturday or Sunday...

They do an all day event on the last Saturday of the month.

Endgame hosts last Saturday of the month.

I play 18xx up in Layfayette occasional Sunday afternoons and even more occasional Saturdays.

Endgame is a great place. Last Saturday of the month takes care of one weekend. I'm not a war gamer, so I can't meet with the wargamer group as I wouldn't know what I was doing. Any other groups that meet on Saturdays in the area?

Luck in games, in measured doses, is the catalyst which enables shocking game-changers that you'll remember and talk about forever.

Yes, check out www.berkeleyboardgamers.com. If there's a Saturday event, it's usually posted 1 week beforehand.

It is broad. It's more 2-player games than wargames.

I would suggest posting on the berkeleyboardgamers.com site about meeting up for Saturday games. It's a laid back group and you'd probably get as many people as you desired for a Saturday game. You can almost always utilize Eudemonia for play space as well.

Thanks guys. I'll take your advice and try to set stuff up ahead of time next time I have the opportunity and come in town. Hopefully I can meet some of you in the near future!

We're currently noodling setting up a game of 1844 this coming Saturday.

Hey all. I'm in town for 4 days this week for Thanksgiving. I'm going to show up at EndGame this weekend (Sat) for the first time. I hope to see some of you there! Thanks for all the advice!
