Hello,

I am new to the area and would like to find some other gamers. I am most familiar with some of Fantasy Flights games, i.e. TI3 and Descent but would love to learn others as well.

Also, I can't seem to find any gaming stores in the area...that can't be right, could it? It would be the first place I have lived without one!

Hey,

I'm in Lead (near Deadwood) and would be interested in playing in the new year... I'm mainly a GMT gamer, but have dallied with Fantasy Flight games.

As far as game stores go, look for Who's Hobby... it is downtown, across from the Assurant Building.

GMT Gamer! WOOT! I've got a few GMT's. I have alot of 'The Gamers" and Avalanche Press games too. I'm near Rapid we should hook up sometime. If you can get to Rapid after the New Year we're going to try to have a game day down at Hobbytown in Tuscany Square off Omaha. I'm putting some flyers up there in a few days.

I know this is kinda out of date, but if you guys are still looking for gamers, I'm a fairly quick jaunt away in Gillette, WY and willing to come out for a game day or something. I'm enjoy FFG games, though I haven't played Descent or TI3 yet.

in the interest of getting info out

http://www.whoshobby.com/ who's hobby, which has been mentioned before has a selection of board games, but is almost overwhelmed with the other 'hobby' stuff in the store. The owner of whos hobby opened another store not far away dedicated to games. i haven't been yet, but plan to next time i go to Rapid. I'm not sure when it opened, but the Rapid City Journal makes it sound like the store opened just recently.

Well, you posted this like a year ago, but I just saw it today...I've got a decently sized boardgaming group here in Rapid but we're always looking for new players. We're around SDSMT, whereabouts do you live?

They are friendly at First Chance Games, I will be getting a copy of Descent soon plus the first expansion. Hopefully there will be some people in the area that will want to play. The Rune Wars game looks like a very cool game to try along with Fury of Dracula.

So this is just a temporary thing, your visting Rapid City? What kind of games do you play? I have a small gaming group that plays a few times a month on the weekends. Lately we have been playing, Twilight Imperium, Defenders of the Realm, Castle Ravenloft, and Arkham Horror.

It's a temporary job assignment for two weeks. I enjoy all four of the games mentioned but only have about 1 play each so far. We have been playing a lot of Zombie State, Conquest of the Planet Earth, and Lords of Vegas.

Wow, I haven't checked this thread out in a looooooooong time and it's nice to see there are some gamers out here.

Still looking for a few more to start a regular or even semi-regular game group. I thought I would post here to see who was still interested since this thread has been up for so long.

P.M. me here or email me at vaporeyes77@gmail.com

@kestrel605

I'm always looking for more people to game with, we play on average 4 times a month. There are only 3 to 4 of us right now and we play games like TI, Castle Ravenloft, Defenders of the Realm, etc. If your interested just let me know and we can set something up.

So we now have three people consistently playing on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings/afternoons and are looking for one or two more players. Lately we have been playing Descent, Arkham Horror, Tide of Iron, and Talisman but are also integrating additional games into the rotation.

If interested, please p.m. me.

I'm interested in finding people who like to play board or card games, but I'm looking for a group where I won't feel like a fish out of water because I'm a middle-aged mom. LOL!

We are new to the area, but we DO NOT play most fantasy flight games (too long).

We like to play Dominion, 7 wonders, TtR, and the like. Anything longer is tiresome.

We tried to see if there were meetup groups out here, but the only one close doesn't seem to do too much board gaming, and the bulk of them are part of the Pagan group too. While I could care less what people do outside of boardgaming, they don't seem like the kind of folks we like to hang with.

I know SDSM&T has a gaming group, but yeah, the "fish out of water" issue sometimes comes up. Also, I think they play games of all sorts (video games, computer games, etc...); only casual board gamers.

also, I stopped by Who's new BG specific shop. From the newspaper article, I thought it'd be mostly CCG's and wargames, but they had a reasonable selection in terms of eurogames. Nothing REALLY exotic, but games like kingdom builder, quarriors, agricola, Puerto Rico, etc...

Now I just need to find folks to play with.

We are in a small apartment, but the "clubhouse" has space. Also, we have a 2 yr old. If you are kosher with those stipulations, PM me.

We're heading out on a family trip to Mt. Rushmore today, any good game stores in area? I'm sure we'll be in Rapid City at some point.
