Golden... As in Oldie! I'm new to the Portland area and looking for gamers to game with and new gaming groups to join! I'm 50+ and like most games but do have a special affinity for dry, cube pushing euros!

I've recently become re-interested in boardgames and am looking for others interested in getting together at my place or elsewhere from time to time (or even weekly) I played the usual boardgames like monopoly and risk as a teenager (even played D&D for a couple of years) but have spent the last 30 or so years completely ignorant of the fact that boardgames were still kind of popular and have really enjoyed the few euro games I've played. I have a collection of games already but haven't been able to find anyone willing to play regularly. I'm in the South Cary/Apex/Holly Springs area. Let me know if you think you might be interested!

I play more in Durham than the Raleigh area, but I know there's a few places where I'm sure you could find interested gamers. The Gamer's Armory is out there, as well as Game Theory. I know people who play at both and like them, and I'm sure there are people who would up for regular Board Game Nights.

I play mostly at Atomic Empire. I run the Netrunner league there and play whatever else I have time for. If you're ever in the area on a Saturday, stop by and introduce yourself!

There's a group that meets in the Brier Creek area weekly. We organize through Reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/trianglegamers/

Thanks! That's a bit of a haul for me, but I have been to Atomic Empire previously. Nice store and huge space! Maybe someday I'll try to get up there. I did find a store here in Cary ("All Fun and Games")which has a great group of people and may also check out Gamer's Armory. Still looking to maybe host a day at home as well if I can find some interested gamers!

I've been attending boardgame nights (wed & thurs) at a couple of local game stores lately and that's actually working out great. I still may plan to host games at my place (and would be happy to games hosted elsewhere)but the game nights ensure lots of people and plenty of variety of games.

I saw your Lancaster Fan badge and that's actually one of the games I'm hoping to get onto the table tonight. Late notice but if you can make it out that would be great.

All Fun and Games - Cary
487 James Jackson Ave, Cary, NC 27513
They are open for gaming from 6pm to 11pm.

Let me know if you can make it tonight or any other night.

By the way, Wednesdays I try to get over to Gamers Armory in Cary for their board game night when I can. (missed this week) They are open from 6 to 10pm

Glad you're getting some games in! I'll be over at GA for their Netrunner regionals. I hear they have a pretty good wargaming community, so I may try my luck there for that, too.

Jedd, since your group page listed taking games to publication, you might be interested in the Game Designers of Carolina: http://boardgamegeek.com/guild/1597.

Thanks! While I am designing a game myself, I'm really working on building the industry contacts I need to become a successful games publisher.

(bump for Triangle Gamers)

NE Raleigh here.

My regular group used to play on Tues or Wed at the Royal Bean near Meredith and sometimes at the Caribou Coffee in Briar Creek for over the past 6 years. But we have slowly dissolved in 2012-2013 and now just meet for an occasional movie at the Blue Ridge or Mission Valley (hey beer AND movies!).

After expanding my small collection by over double the last couple of months (Thanks BGGCon!) I really need to find a group as well.

I think I might start going to some of the local store's game nights and appreciate the posts here reminding us of those options. Also I will see about getting an invite to Matt's Briar Creek Reddit group.

Glad I found this thread.

Thanks Dave.
I joined that meetup group and made it out to Gamer's Armory last week for their Wednesday BG night. Met Matt Wolf who was demoing a game, also met a few other very friendly folks, and joined a game of Amerigo. Thanks to Linus for patiently teaching!

This week the plan was to attend Game Theory's Tuesday Night BG night but unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate...perhaps next week.

Hi Gary,

I guess I didn't meet you last week, but I also go to Gamer's Armoury most Wednesdays, so hope to see you there again soon. Matt and Linus are both great as is the rest of the gang that shows up regularly (or occasionally)!

Chris
