Guilded Chaos is a Madison, Wisconsin board gaming club that welcomes all interested gamers. The group meets in Madison every Tuesday starting at 5:30 PM and on the second Saturday of every month.
No appointment necessary - if you're in the area, just show up and join in a game. If you want more details, please PM:
We coordinate sessions via the evite.com site, so if you are interested in being included on the invitations for our regular sessions and other gatherings, please PM
with an email address.
Guilded Chaos has two types of gaming sessions: Scheduled Open Sessions and Appointment Games.
Scheduled Open Sessions
We hold regularly scheduled open sessions, where different games are brought by members, and we decide what to play at that moment. It is nice if the presenter knows the rules, but we are always willing to work through a ruleset to learn a new game. If you receive an evite notice, you will be able to see what particular games are being brought for each session.
When are they held?
Weekly: Every Tuesday from 5:30- 9:00 PM
Monthly: The second Saturday of every month, usually starting at 10AM and lasting until 8PM.
Where are they held?
The Tuesday and Saturday Sessions are held at
I'm Board Game Store in Middleton.
Longtable Beer Cafe in Middleton.
What is a scheduled open session like?
Members may bring a selection of games from their collection and the group decides what to play. We are willing to teach any game, and plow through a ruleset that is new to everyone.. so if you want to just show up and sit in on a session, you are welcome.
Although you don't have to stay for the whole session, it is recommended that you try to make it at the start time.
When a person wants to play a specific title, this is an appointment game.
This is often done for the longer games that last several hours, as these games are not practical to run in a weekly, open session. These games may be held on the west side of Madison or at a member's home.
The evite.com system is used to arrange these sessions, and to gauge interest in games for future appointment games. If a member wants to arrange an appointment game, they can send out an evite invitation at any time.
