Who We Are
A periodic gathering of worthy individuals to play Eurogames in
the greater Richland, WA metropolitan area, with regular attendence of
about 10-20 at each game night.
We now have a guild at boardgamegeek.com,
which has forums for discussion and some event photos, as well as a
copy of the calendar and other information. I would encourage
everybody to join this guild, as it is a great way to discuss games and
issues or provide other information of interest to other CBBS
Session reports from previous Game Nights and other CBBS events are now available at boardgamegeek.com. Come see what you are missing!
The week before each event an Evite
will be sent to everyone on our mailing list. If your spam filter keeps
blocking these emails, adding firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book may
help. If you did not receive an invitation to any particular event, a
link to invite yourself can usually be found by clicking on the event in
the schedule above. At any rate, we ask that you let us know if you are
coming, so we can plan for the correct number of people.
We have open gaming at
Rosy's Ice Cream Shoppe on Wednesdays, from
about 5:00pm to 8:00pm (and until closing time, if people stick around). This
is a drop-in session with no invite needed, and there will usually be
somebody there from the CBBS to introduce games to new players. No purchase is
necessary, although obviously food will be available.
Game nights are usually held at Tim
Shippert's house at 1529 Judson, Richland, WA. We may occasionally
gather in other places, however, so check the calendar above for details or
contact one of us if you aren't sure.
We ask that for regular game nights you do not bring children under the
age of 12. Furthermore, while the games
we play are, with one or two possible exceptions, not particularly mature
in theme or mechanics, the discussions and exclamations of those playing may not be
very reserved. If this is of concern to you, you might consider
coming by yourself first before deciding whether to bring your older offspring
We do occasionally hold game days or other events specifically for
children; in addition, bringing children to Rosy's is normally okay,
although you should be prepared not to hold up a game by playing if your
child requires particular attention on that day.
What are these Eurogames of which you speak?

Here is an article on German-style
boardgames from Wikipedia.

collection, or a random mosaic of
boxcovers from every
game I own.
Eurogames (or German Games, or Designer Games, or Family Strategy Games, or
These Games Of Ours) are board and card games like you used to play as a
kid, only designed for adults. They have great components, interesting rules,
intriguing decisions, and opportunities for intelligent play - but they
also generally have some luck, lots of fun, and playing times of about an
hour. If you've ever spent an evening playing Hearts or Bridge or
Pinochle or Poker, CBBS Game Nights are something like that, only with a
great deal more variety.
Of course, with this variety some games will be heavier and longer, some
will be shorter and lighter, some will engage your brain and others will
engage your funny bone. There is likely to be a game for every taste, as
long as you like to play and have fun. In short, they are the kind of games you always
wanted to play, even if you never knew it.
