Friday, November 21st 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.

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, November 22nd at 5:00pm Cheshire Hall
Nashville Unveiled is a twice monthly live action roleplaying game in Nashville, Tennessee. The players take on the roles of humans and/or supernatural creatures such as Vampires, Changelings, and other creatures of legend that inhabit a fictional version of the modern day world. We create stories set in the World of Darkness (a fictional fantasy universe created by White Wolf Publishing). It is basically the current world with a subtle and supernatural twist. Think "X Files" or "Fringe", only the stories are usually told from the perspective the supernatural inhabitants of the world.
New Players are welcome. No experience needed: we'll help you get started. We're a friendly and open group. Some level of costume is fairly common, but certainly not required. While the event begins at 5pm, the doors open at 3pm, and it is recommended you early to prepare your character.
Live Action Roleplaying is similar to a murder mystery dinner party. It is a cross between improvisational theater and a board game. Players in the group create a character that they play out over many games, developing their character and his or her relationship to the other characters.
Characters move around in a given area and interact socially with each other, sometimes with props or clues regarding the current stories that they are participating in. When two players take actions that conflict, it is resolved through non-physical means (a deck of cards and their character sheets). This is not the "foam weapon" style sometimes seen, but rather a story and character oriented event.
You are not confined to having your character match your physical appearance: an 18 year old hipster might play a 62 year old business tycoon. Or a 45 year old woman might portray a 600 year old vampire or a priest who happens to be a werewolf. Recently, we had a mother of two portray a five year old girl.
Finally, just in case you might be concerned: this is a form of entertainment. We do not actually think we have magical powers any more than an actor playing Peter Pan on stage believes that she can actually fly.

Sunday, November 23rd at 1:00pm American Legion Post 88
We meet up every Sunday afternoon, 1:00 p.m. at the American Legion, Post 88. We're located at 2864 Elm Hill Pike, Donelson. You need not be a member of the American Legion to join us. Experienced and novice players are welcome. If you've never played, we can teach you. Optional tournament play is scheduled for December and we've scheduled a new member welcoming meeting for November 23rd.
We encourage chess games but also enjoy chats and less formal variations, like team chess matches. Anyone coming to our club expecting a totally quiet, extremely well lit atmosphere where they plan to always "get down to business" of formal chess matches may be disappointed. While we will formalize our tournaments as much as necessary, a more casual atmosphere prevails over most of our weekly gatherings. Our chess matches are for 21 and older, please.
Come join the fun!

Monday, November 24th 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.
Please patronize Freedom Deli as a thank you for letting us use their dining room as a meet up space. Thanks.
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.

Want your group listed here? We're going to be opening up this website for collaborative editing in July 2014, or you can contact Evan to get your group listed right now.
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.
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 2014 Caravan is already shaping up for the largest gaming convention in the world.
