Please feel free to join us for our weekly event of board games in the downtown core of Toronto. This is a great opportunity to meet with other boardgamers in a casual environment.

The event starts at 6pm and most of the games get started within the first 10 minutes, so please try to arrive on time or expect to sit out the first round of games. The event runs until 10pm sharp when the store closes. We sometimes go out after for food or additional games.

There is pop for sale in the store but no food available so feel free to bring along a snack.

This event got started through the Toronto Area Gamers meetup group, but has extended to other groups and other 401 customers. We usually have 10-15 people and run 2 or 3 games at a time.

There are always a few strategy games available like Carcassonne, Dominion, Agricola, Endeavor, and Robo Rally but the actual selection changes week to week. Also, feel free to bring along your favourites games, especially if you are comfortable teaching them.

Hope to see you there. :-)

Where do you play? In the upstairs area?

I live just up the street and usually get home by 5:30pm - so I should be able to pick up a few games and drop by. Sounds like fun.

Take a look at my games list and if there is anything that your are interested in playing let me know.

Thanks!

It'll be great if you can make it out, John.

Looks like this week we'll have at least Agricola, Kingsburg, Ticket to Ride: Europe, Chaos in the Old World, Carcassonne, Robo Rally and Race for the Galaxy.

Nice list! I'd love to play Alhambra and learn some of the expansions, Bohnanza is always fun, Puerto Rico expansion would be fun to learn, or the Ticket to Ride original for practice before the TABS tournament would be great! I would suggest bringing whatever you are in the mood to play and anything you are comfortable teaching.

Last week we had 19 people, our biggest crowd yet, so I'm hoping this trend continues. We do play upstairs. Sometimes there are other people there taking up one table for MTG or some Miniatures game but we have the rest of the room.

Hope to see you there. :-)
