AUGUST 2016 UPDATE

We're now using Meetup, as you'll see below.

---

Just wanted to let you know we started up a Meetup for tabletop gamers in the Fraser Valley. We've already had one event which went great with 9 people attending and we have another scheduled in 2 weeks.

http://www.meetup.com/tabletop-gamers/
http://www.facebook.com/FraserValleyGamers

Come check out the group and join up to be notified of all of our events. Also, give us your opinions to help us decide on the best types of events to run. Filling out the polls and engaging in the discussion is the best way for that.

We look forward to seeing you at the gaming table.

-Darin

Hey,

We still meet every second week, but if there's anyone out there reading this, you should know that we changed the website a while ago, and that, yes, we still exist.

www.fvgamers.ca

We meet out at Warcraft Games (www.warcraftgames.ca) in Mission every other Sunday to play board games for as long as the store is open, and occasionally have other events running as well.

Sorry to drop in uninvited and with what many might consider spam - but this weekend Kamloops is hosting the first British Columbia Interior Games Convention. BIGCON has Warhammer, Warmachine and Magic Tournaments - along with board game demos, a library of games and open tables to play them.

Okay, we changed things up again a few months ago. We still have the same website (www.fvgamers.ca), but now it's a Facebook group.

Also, we no longer meet at Warcraft in Mission on Sunday afternoons, but in Abbotsford on every second Friday night at our wonderful, magnanimous host Darin's place.

Come check us out and play a few games with us. We play all sorts of different types of games - recently we've played Stone Age, Twilight Imperium (Third Edition): Shattered Empire, Commands & Colors: Ancients, Thunderstone, Alien Frontiers and lots of other different things, including the occasional indie role-playing game like Fiasco.

Hey guys,

I'm just updating this thread to say that we still meet every second Friday night at our secret Abbotsford location. This last Friday we had a few new people, and it was a blast. We had 3 tables going at once, and we played Reef Encounter, Stone Age, Ticket to Ride: Europe, Dominion, Evil Potato Moon, and Wits & Wagers.

We're always happy to see new people come out and play with us. Our website is www.fvgamers.ca. Sign up on one of our Facebook events, and ask someone for the address. Or just Geekmail me and I'll give you the directions.

We'd love to have you play some games with us.

A while ago, we moved over to a Google+ community: it's been far easier to manage events.

Check us out if you're in the area. There's links there to our event schedule and our profile page, too.

Hi, Adam. We meet at different folks homes across Abbotsford, Mission, and even out to north Langley sometimes. We used to meet at the Mission game's store a few years ago, but we changed it up based on popular opinion.

Yes we meet regularly. Generally every two weeks, currently we are meeting on Saturdays starting at 7pm and the location rotates between various members' residences in Abbotsford/Mission.
We usually have a turn out of between 3-6 players.

Just curious if the group still meets, the google group doesnt have anything on it recently. Getting into board games and am in abbotsford so looking for groups that don't require going to langley.

The group is still active. The next scheduled meeting is this Saturday at 7pm at a residence in Abbotsford.

Since Google has implemented new user interfaces for their social networking a few months ago, it's been a real struggle for the admins to find a new public forum to post the meet-up schedules where everyone can easily view and RSVP the meet up details.

Lately we have mostly just been scheduling through personal email or text message but the intent is for the group to be open to the public so hopefully going forward we will find a new forum for posting that will work for everyone.

In the meantime, I would say to geekmail the other user on this thread called Darin Shepit as he is one of the organizers of the group and he can provide more details about the upcoming meet-ups.

I joined the google community but realized now that that is not the most used method for communication now? Either way I am interested in maybe dropping in some time with my wife and I.

Thanks!
