Monday, February 27th at 6:00pm Frontline Games
Let's play games and have some fun.
Join us for board games and lots of fun with a great group of people. You do not have to know how to play the games as most can be learned first time you play. Join us for a fun night. Feel free to bring games or just join in on games being taught by others.
Where adults (18 years of age and older) can meet up to play board games and card games and make new friends. Bring games of your own to play with others or just come and learn new games. These games are easy to learn, so join in the fun!
This group tends to favor Euro style or worker placement style board games and other modern day favorites on http://boardgamegeek.com/browse/boardgame
An example of typical board games played at the meet up include: Dominant Species, Eclipse Ascension, Small World, Carcasonne, Dixit, Kingsburg, DC, Survive Escape from Atlantis, Power Grid, Lords of Waterdeep, Stone Age, 7 Wonders, Settlers of Catan, Thurn and Taxis, Citadels, Dominion, Pandemic, Caylus, Agricola, Ticket to Ride Europe, Risk Legacy, and Dice Town.
All of these games are a ton of fun, and we always have someone there who knows how to play them. We are always more than happy to teach games to people who are new. We would love for you to come out and give it a try.
Monday, February 27th at 6:00pm The Game Keep
Join the Nashville Board Game group for some games!
Tuesday, February 28th at 6:00pm The Game Keep
The Track & Hull Club is a historical miniature gaming group that plays strategic games, primarily historical recreations or situations. We meet weekly at the Game Keep for miniature gaming.
Tuesday, February 28th at 6:00pm Camino Real
A diverse, adult board game group that weekly (Tuesday evenings, 6:00 p.m.) at Camino Real to play all kinds of board games.
Come on out and join us for board game night on Tuesday at Camino Real!
Make sure you RSVP so we have an idea of how many tables/chairs to ask them to set up.
Happy hour is from 3 p.m. to close! We are starting at 6:00 p.m. so everyone has a chance to order and eat, and then we will start playing at 6:30 p.m.!
Everyone is welcome to bring their board games, although it is not a requirement. Plus, if you don't know how to play a game, no worries... that's what we are all here for, to learn new games, meet new people and have fun! Hope to see you there!"
The event location changes rarely but 99% of the time its at the same place, the area the event is in however is always 100% in the Nashville/Antioch area.
The link above is for the groups official FaceBook page. The FB group officially does it every 2 weeks. But I "unofficially" handle the meetups on the weeks in between. Just incase you do join the FB group and see contradicting information. Thats why.
Tuesday, February 28th at 6:00pm The Cumberland
Open boardgame evening - although numbers are limited due to space restrictions. I'm looking forward to meeting fellow Nashvillians who like to play!
We have a communual space with some 4 seater tables, some high long benches and a larger boardroom space with a giant table (which I have to book).
Feel free to bring a favourite game. I have a small selection of games available: Dominion (all sets), Five Tribes, Splendor, Stone Age, Ubongo, Evo, Raiders of the North Sea, Alhambra Big Box, Ticket to Ride, Castles of Mad King Ludwig, Portal, Incan Gold, Piece of Cake, Genial and a number of smaller quicker games.
This is a secure building, so to enter you will need to scroll through the resident list until you find Adrianne - call me and I can let you in.
Parking is free at Bicentennial mall in the employee lots after hours and there is a free bus than will bring you very close, or else it's an easy 5 - 10 minute stroll. The Library Garage parking is right across the street. There is very limited on-street parking in the area.
I hope to make this a weekly event, so keep an eye out for one that suits you.
Wednesday, March 1st at 6:00pm Cheshire Hall
Open board game and card game night - feel free to drop in! We have a large library of advanced board games and card games. There are usually a couple games running at any given time, so you'll have plenty of opportunity to jump into a game. Doors open at 5:00pm; games usually get going around 6:00pm and end between 10:00 and Midnight.
Wednesday, March 1st at 6:30pm The Game Keep
The new season of Dungeons and Dragons Adventurers League begins!
Greater Nashville D&D Adventurers League
THE NEW SEASON CONTINUES:
Giants have emerged from their strongholds to threaten civilization as never before. Hill giants are stealing all the grain and livestock they can while stone giants have been scouring settlements that have been around forever. Fire giants are press-ganging the smallfolk into the desert, while frost giant longships have been pillaging along the Sword Coast. Even the elusive cloud giants have been witnessed, their wondrous floating cities appearing above Waterdeep and Baldur’s Gate. Where is the storm giant King Hekaton, who is tasked with keeping order among the giants?
The humans, dwarves, elves, and other small folk of the Sword Coast will be crushed underfoot from the onslaught of these giant foes. The only chance at survival is for the small folk to work together to investigate this invasion and harness the power of rune magic, the giants’ weapon against their ancient enemy the dragons. The only way the people of Faerun can restore order is to use the giants’ own power against them.
This season's Dungeon Masters:
Table 1, Rick D; Table 2, Matt T, Table 3, Don C, Table 4, Mike S
BRING A CHARACTER OR YOU CAN CREATE ONE AT THIS EVENT.
BRING YOUR PENCILS, PAPER, AND LUCKY DICE!
NEW AND VETERAN PLAYERS ARE WELCOME TO JOIN ANYTIME.
Friday, March 3rd at 5:00pm Cheshire Hall
An evening spent on the more in depth games. These can include tabletop roleplaying games, and strategy or long play board games (like Ogre, Duel of Ages, or Battlestar Galactica). One-shots, campaigns, and long board games or card games are all welcome. New players are always welcome and there are pretty much always a few seats free at a game.
Participants are encouraged to organize together in advance as groups for a particular game to better allocate tables. While there are usually some gamers hanging out for a pick-up game, the idea of the evening is to organize for specific, longer games that aren't as feasible on the more casual Wednesday open gaming night. Which isn't to say that it's a serious tone... we're a friendly group, and there's a bunch of laughter and cheering on most nights.
We encourage people to show up early, so games can get rolling earlier rather than later. If you're planning a particular game, please note when it starts. From Pathfinder to Fiasco, Arkham Horror to Railways of the World, you'll be able to find other people interested in playing just about anything under the sun. Feel free to plan games in the comments section here.
Note: Doors open at 5pm with an eye toward play starting by 7pm. Like every other open event, this is participatory, so feel free to suggest and put forward ideas. This is a Cheshire Hall event, part of NAGA, which includes many different gaming groups.
Friday, March 3rd at 6:30pm The Game Keep
This will be an on going campaign. Please rsvp early and feel free to ask questions.
The heroes are level 2 currently. I will be tracking special items and reputation as the campaign progresses. This is meant to be a heroic adventure, where the players will be front and center for major events.
Saturday, March 4th at 12:00pm Cheshire Hall
The Changed is a Theatrical LARP -- think "Murder Mystery Dinner Party" or "Escape Room" -- set in a modern fantasy setting. Characters are Changed: they look human, but are actually ogres, werecreatures, fair folk, or other things from myth and folklore. They travel the world to maintain balance in change: shepherds of the powerful fantastic creatures, forging peace between humans and their more magical neighbors.
Uses the Chronicles of Darkness rules for Changing Breeds and Changeling the Lost.
New players are always welcome! No experience needed; this is a story focused event.
Saturday, March 4th at 12:00pm The Game Keep
The Pathfinder Society is a living campaign. On Golarion, the world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, the Pathfinder Society is an organization of explorers, vagabonds, sages, and treasure hunters determined to plumb the depths of the darkest tombs, and collect relics and lore from bygone ages. In Pathfinder Society Organized Play, you play a member of the Pathfinder Society, seeking fortune and glory all over the face of Golarion. At the same time, your character works for one of eight factions, all with their own motivations and secret agendas. The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game is an evolution of the 3.5 rules set of the world's oldest fantasy roleplaying game. You can find a free download of the Guide to PFS play here: http://paizo.com/pathfinderSociety/v5748btp... There will also be pregens on hand. Come join us! New players (and GMs!) welcome.
Saturday, March 4th at 5:00pm Cheshire Hall
This is an improvisational LARP taking place within the Mind's Eye Society continuity of Vampire: The Masquerade, utilizing the By Night Studios LARP system.
Time: 5pm to 10:30pm CST
Dive into the elaborate, sanguine universe of suspense and supernatural horror. Clan Assamite has made a series of assassination attempts on visitors to the city during Countess d'Adhemar's Grand Ball, murdering up-and-coming and established members of the Ivory Tower. With these assassinations, the looming presence of the Sabbat, and the tense environment after the mysterious death of the former Prince, Elder Gideon Ash, progeny of the famous Victoria Ash, what will become of the city in the aftermath of tragic loss?
If you're a visitor, you will need to provide a copy of your character sheet 48-72 hours prior to the game. Sheets and questions can be sent to email@example.com.

Monday, March 6th at 6:00pm The Game Keep
Join the Nashville Board Game group for some games!
Want your group listed here? We're going to be opening up this website for collaborative editing in May 2016, or you can contact Evan to get your group listed right now. You can also list events on the NAGACentral Meetup, or ask that your meetup be added to the calendar to the left.
Every Wednesday Cheshire Hall hosts a Open Board Game Night, which can range from card games through all manner of board games, through to strategy wargames. There is often a pot luck dinner, and plenty of pick up games. Everybody is welcome to show up, meet other gamers and play from the extensive library of games our members have. Feel free to bring a game, or show up to look for new players. For more information, call Evan at (814) 889-8845, or Sarah at (814) 404-0008.
Another Wednesday group meets at Frontline Games in Clarksville on Wednesdays, and it's a great open group too!
Every Friday Cheshire Hall hosts a Open RPG and Strategy Game Night, which is honestly just the night for longer games -- including board games if you want. It's a little more organized, so you might want to declare a game you want to run and get some players. On the other hand, there are usually a few people who just show up that can form a table.
Do you like murder mystery parties or improv theater? Are you into urban and modern supernatural fantasy games? Then join the ongoing story that is Nashville Unveiled! This is a theatrical style LARP: no foam weapons, and more like a dinner party with character sheets. Well... and occasional bloodthirsty combat resolved through a variant of the classic RPG turns and dice. Alternates with Tabletop RPG Day on Saturdays.
Every year we head up to the biggest four days in gaming: GenCon Indy. The 2016 Caravan is already shaping up for the largest gaming convention in the world.
