Welcome to Oakville Gaming Club.
The Oakville Gaming Club is a very small gathering of local persons sharing a hobby: board games. We are all very flexible and easy to get along with. We welcome all gamers from novice to experienced, but are looking for "serious" gamers. Very various kinds of persons are enriching the interaction in the games, making it fun, rewarding, surprising, educational, challenging, a real experience in itself to wash away sorrows of the day-to-day life.
Our main goal is to have fun, but with respect of each other in mind. We play mostly board games and card games, involving family, strategy, resource management, heroic-fantasy, history with a French and German touch (see games collection). Occasionally we organize a LAN party of videogames of strategy. We also research and design variants to good games. You are cordially invited to bring your own games for pick-up play or Game of the Week. There is also space available for role-playing campaigns.
We meet Saturdays at 1pm and run until between 6pm and 10pm. Sometimes we meet more often while on holidays.
We promote a positive mental attitude, good sportsmanship, fair play, flexibility, open mindedness, relax, cool atmosphere, patience and communication. We provide many games, but also ask that members bring their favourites to share with the group. We are always willing to teach and learn new games.
Code of conduct:
