There is something I find deeply satisfying about playing board games with friends in a bar. The blend of people, noise, and drinks feels right. I enjoy this atmosphere so much I host two regular tabletop game meetups at breweries. The community forming around these events is amazing. Everyone is welcoming, willing to teach and learn new games, and understands the most important component of any game is the player. Fostering such a community takes work. I want to help spread this congeniality by providing my advice on how to start public tabletop meetups.
