Monthly Simi Valley Board Game Meet-up

This is our normal monthly meetup at the Santa Susana Park and Depot: East Room. located at 6503 Katherine Road. 

We will meet from 5:00pm until 9:30pm. We must be out by 10pm sharp with the room cleaned up and tables/chairs put away. It shouldn't be a hard setup.

What should you bring?:

1) Games!

If you want to play a game, you better bring it! Don't own it? Ask in the comment section on the specific meetup you are attending for someone to bring it. We can't guarantee it will be there, but if it is a popular game it most likely will be there.

2) Common Sense and Good Behavior

We are open to the public, we have a zero tolerance policy for poor behavior, and anyone disrupting the event will be asked to leave. No drugs or alcohol are allowed. Smoking is prohibited as the depot is a historical landmark made out of redwood (this includes vaping). Please be ready to embrace a "you break it, you buy it" type mentality. If you damage someone's game you WILL be expected to replaced damaged parts/games. If someone has brought snacks and has generously donated them to the group. Please don't take excessive quantities and allow others the chance to get some too. Please also be mindful about your personal hygiene.

3) Donations (Optional)

Donations are completely optional!  Each donation you make goes to Games for the Community which is our 501(c)(3) organization meaning that your donation(s) are tax deductible.  100% of our fundraising efforts go to funding our events and costs.  We take $0 salary for this and our proud to invest our time to offering the community a service such as this.

July Mini-convention Day of Gaming

Please come join us for our first mini-convention event! We will be hosting a day-long event at the Rancho Santa Susana Community Center for everyone to come play table top games in all their forms. We have plenty of space for open gaming to bring or join in on games. We also will have several scheduled events throughout the day. 

 

Here’s how it works: 

We are open to the public and encourage everyone interested in table top games to drop-in to play some games at NO COST. If you’d like to attend please be sure to RSVP through this Meetup Event. If you’re bringing additional folks be sure to click the +1, +2, +3 etc. as appropriate.  RSVPs help us anticipate needs and plan accordingly.

 

Scheduled Events and Games:

If you’d like to register to play in one of the scheduled games please check out the scheduled events being hosted throughout the day and fill out the registration form here http://bit.ly/28bJ8JO

    If you are unsure about what you’d like to play, but just want to “check it out”, please stop by. Several Game Masters will be available to help folks find games that they may enjoy and many people enjoy “Free/casual gaming” that is not scheduled.

     

    Don’t forget to bring what you want to play!

    If you have a favorite game that you’d like to share with others, we encourage you to bring it along as we’re always interested in learning new games.  If you don’t own it go ahead and ask away on our event’s discussion comments.  Don’t be shy!

     

    What happens when I’m hungry?

    Food and non-alcoholic beverages are allowed - although we do suggest folks avoid bringing Cheetos or other “messy” foods that may get on the games. If you’d like to bring a snack, drinks or desserts for the group it would be greatly appreciated by all (our only restriction is that no alcoholic beverages are allowed). Our volunteers also know Simi Valley very well and can offer advice if you are looking to go out and pick-up lunch/dinner. Please be courteous to others and make sure to pick up after yourself. 

    Smoking and Vaping are prohibited inside the Community Center.
