Ottawa Board Gaming Community is a Meetup Group for people who enjoy board games and socializing. Our meetups have more of a socializing aspect versus a competitive gaming environment so come join us on our next meetup to have a laugh, a bite to eat and meet some interesting people to play all sorts of board games with, from the classics, to the bizarre and the new.

First time attending? You do not need to bring any games unless you have one you would like to play. When you first arrive, there are typically 3 organizers waiting to greet you, get you a name tag and a raffle ticket for one of our monthly draws. Due to the large size of our group, it is very easy to find a game and people are always eager to teach games. We have a game library of over 300 games for all levels and interests of gaming.

 If there is a game you would like to try and don’t have, leave a post on our forums, the chances of one of the members having it is very good. Also take a look at our Meetup page. Look forward to meeting everyone.
