In person: In order to encourage gaming for all, in person meetups will feature events with mandatory masks and events when masks are optional. Masks and sanitizers will be available. Please check which conditions apply for each event.

Online: Online meetups typically start in Discord to divide into virtual tables (channels) to chat while playing online in boardgamearena.com (BGA). Both sites are free, but you will need to create a BGA account to play, and allow a few minutes to review our Discord server terms and conditions before your first gaming session.
