Both are fair. Neither is great. The only game store I know of in the area I'd call great is Endgame up in Oakland.

I run a carpool up from San Jose up to Endgame for their Wednesday game night 2-3 times a month. If that works for you please feel free to give me a shout. Also give me a shout if you are interested in other gaming opportunities. There are many groups in the Bay Area.

Meetup.com has a few Eurogame groups on SJ!

If you're at Endgame at the last Saturday, drop me a line so I can get you the Bay Area Pensinsula Gamers link. They're in Foster City.


aka. Washu! ^O^

Cedric -

I'm in San Mateo, and work in Foster City. Can you give me the scoop on the local group? Thanks

There are a number of groups.

The one in Foster City: Boardgame Addicts of the Peninsula. Meets the last Saturday of each month at St. Ambrose church in Foster City.

Others are:

Bay Area Games Day: Irregular Saturdays (every 6 weeks or so) at the Los Altos Public Library. Next meeting is August 16.

Silicon Valley Boardgamers: Every Tuesday evening from 6:30-10:00 at the Mt. View Community Center on Rengstorff Ave. in Mountain View.

South Bay Boardgamers: Every Monday night from 6:30-late at Yahoo on Bordeaux in Sunnyvale.

Tip of the iceberg. A lot more groups in the bay area and even a lot more in this part of the bay area. This thread gives a better list, but by now is pretty out of date.

Someone who has some geek gold to spare should donate it to me so I can set up a guild to track this.

There is a San Jose, CA guild. What region were you thinking of including? Just San Jose? South Bay? Peninsula? Greater Bay Area?

I'd pitch in for a Greater Bay Area guild.

Yeah. Bay Area. I assume a Guild is the right place to do this here and if so I would be happy to maintain it. Whatever maintaining it means.

Some North Bay info would be outstanding, too.

Thanks for your replies. I think I might try that Endgame store. And thanks for the invite, I might very well take you up on that. :)

You betcha. Great store, great group.

There are in fact two gamesdays on the last Saturday of each month, one at BAP and one at Endgame. I find BAP far preferable.

I know of two groups in your immediate area:

BAP: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/boardgameaddicts/
BAEurogame: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BAEurogame/

There are almost certainly others, but I don't track them. Ooops, I see Dave has also posted particulars. I attend all the groups he mentions.

If you are stuck in San Jose, you can also check out Legends. They have 2 locations. One at Oakridge Mall (87/Santa Theresa) and another at Valco (Wolfe Road and 280).

I'm in the Santa Cruz area and it would be great to have one guild for everyone
