Coming the Week of July 22nd

The first installment of Beyond the Veil an in-depth look at Arkham Horror The Card Game, It Came From the Tabletop Podcast, a look at FOMO, reviews of Undaunted Normandy and Starlight Stage, and more TBA.

× Welcome to one of the oldest board game communities on the Internet. That may sound like hyperbole but it really is true.

We are really happy to have you here. Unfortunately, being online we can't bond with you over a game so you'd know right away how happy we are to meet you. For now, you'll just have to take our word for it.

This site has always thrived on lively discussion and spirited but civil debate. We hope that newcomers here will find a welcoming atmosphere where game enthusiasts of all levels of experience and commitment will have something to add to the conversation. You never need to prove your “gamer cred” here. Whether you have been playing board games for a few months or a few decades; whether you have a huge collection or a small one; whether you have been a member here for years or just joined today – your opinion is valued here.

We know that it can be intimidating to jump into a new community and want to assure you that this is NOT the kind of forum where people will tell you that you posted something in the wrong place, or that you should have found an existing thread on the topic, or that you shouldn’t have resurrected an old thread.

So if you find a thread or an article discussion that interests you, whether it is old or new, feel free to jump in. Want to discuss a specific game or board gaming related topic just start a new topic. If you don’t know which forum to put it in, just make your best guess (we really don’t care all that much. It’s easy enough for a moderator to move it or merge it, if necessary).

A good place to get started is by introducing yourself in the “New Members Introduce Yourself” thread (below) or by telling us what you have been playing in the “What BOARD GAME(s) have you been playing?" thread ( therewillbe.games/forum/35-mos-eisley-ca...ave-you-been-playing ).

Have fun, and we look forward to hearing from you.

Welcome Roland.

You get extra bonus points for adding an avatar. If you like Euros, you have arrived on a good day for them. I see you found Wade's review. His reviews are published every Wed, and are mostly Euros and family games. Grace P also tends to review Euros. You can find links to all their reviews and articles in the By Author section of the main menu.

If there is a game you want to discuss, just start up a new topic.

There are lots of ways to find stuff here. If you need any help navigating, just ask.

G'Day.

Thought I would wander in to say Hello. New here, just loitering in the hallways to get a feel for the place.

Slainte Mhath gamers,

Welcome! Let me know if I can answer any questions about the forums, etc. Some folks here like to post in the couple big perpetual threads but always feel welcome to post new specific threads about games, genres, etc!

Greetings new friends :

If you put a winky face at the end of anything posted by myself or Barney or in any seemingly combative reply, you will have a pretty good grip for the tone on this site.

Well this calls for a proper whiskey. I'll pop off for a bit of Yellow Spot.

. . . and I'll just mention that we appear to be attracting a classier crowd these days. We may need to lift our game.

Sagrilarus,

I cannot for the life of me find it. Someone had linked to it thought and I was astonished I hadn't seen this site.

I'm excited to be here. I'm lurking for the moment, just absorbing all the material and getting used to the interface. I'll be posting some stuff eventually, once I get all the feels.

Thanks again.

Had a brain itch - it had to be on the day I signed up, roughly, and I believe it was a post about hype, or not being able to trust reviewers.

Sagrilarus,

I found it! It's the one where YOU (or your doppleganger) posted a link about luck in board games!

Excellent!

Ubarose pays me $500 for every person I bring to the site. She sells our data to LuLaRoe dealers. Be sure to let her know if you need leggings.

I'll just mention that the above post is not . . . actually true. But I'm sure you all know that.
