Five Years of Board Games?!

That’s right, it has been five years since I started the NonTraditional Board Games MeetUp group. I’m sure you’ve heard the origins over and over on podcasts and bios so I won’t bore you with any of that stuff. What I will do is let you know we will be celebrating this milestone at the MeetUp this Saturday.

Goodbye UnPub, Hello Unpublished Game Designer Day!

Due to UnPub not posting our library event, not responding to multiple emails, not responding to their contact forum, and not responding on Twitter, we will be rebranding our event in November to Unpublished Game Designers Day!

If you are an unpublished game designer and want to come out to Silver Spring, MD to show off your cool upcoming game, don’t hesitate to reach out.

WashingCon League Rules

Welcome to The League @ WashingCon!

The League is a fun, little metagame that you can play at WashingCon if you purchase a wristband. There are four teams: Blue, Green, Red, and Yellow. All you have to do is play games and if you win and the opponent has a ribbon, they yield one to you. If you lose, you give one away. At the end of the day, turn in the ribbons to be entered into a raffle to win a $50 gift card to Labyrinth Games & Puzzles.

If you are interested and want to know more, head over to the League page for full rules or ask the bearded one with the Jabba Palace/Rancor work shirt who is handing out the wristbands.

Welcome to The League!

The first Session of the League for NonTraditional Board Games has begun! The League is a little something extra for MeetUp meeples to freely participate in at the Library events. It is 100% free like all of the gatherings but you can only sign up between Sessions.

Be sure to check out the League page for updates on each week of the Session. Hit the jump for more details.
