TABLETOP/BOARD GAME COMMUNITY
We Are Passionate About Board Games!
We love to share our passion for Board Games with others. We have found that the best part of board gaming is the people that you meet while playing and the community that you create from those connections. We believe that a strong Board Game Community helps us all find and play the games that we enjoy and have more fun. A healthy, growing community builds an environment with more, new exciting games to discover and more people to enjoy them with.
Below you'll find information on some of the people and places you can visit to learn about The Board Gaming Hobby. We'll be adding to - and updating this section of our website as frequently as we can and hope to be adding to it soon - if you have any suggestions of what we might be able to add here share your wishlist with us by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
