Virtual Gaming


Join us for a variety of board games we can play together – apart, while talking to each other, thanks to several free apps and services. For details on how to join the fun, including an invitation link to our Discord server, visit the Gaming Stuff page on our web site.
We’ve been playing a variety of games, including: 6 nimmt!, 7 Wonders, Can’t Stop, Carcassonne, Castles of Burgundy: The Dice Game, Codenames, Hex Roller, Jaipur, Just One, Legacy of Dragonholt, Qwixx, Russian Railroads, Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective, Stone Age, That’s Pretty Clever, Tzolk’in, Welcome to… and more.
We meet up on our Discord server, then play games on Web Ex and Board Game Arena. When playing on Board Game Arena we use our Discord Voice channels, named after our game rooms, so we can talk to each other while we play. On Web Ex, we even get some face-to-face game time in.
The training mode on Board Game Arena, coupled with a Discord Voice channel works great for teaching games. So we can teach you how to play like we normally do.
When you connect to our Discord server, introduce yourself in the general channel, then go to the looking-for-game channel to join the discussion of what to play. If no conversation is currently in progress, read the most recent posts to see where we’re playing. We’ll post the URL(s) where you can view the game(s) in progress and what voice channel(s) we’re using, if applicable. That way you can come watch the game and join the conversation until we start the next game – maybe even join the game late depending on what we’re playing.
Hope to see you soon!
There’s no charge to join us for Virtual Gaming. We’d of course appreciate it if you bought games from us, though. Our online store is open 24/7 and our brick-and-mortar store is open 1pm to 6pm Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and Saturdays from 11am to 6pm.

  2. Sign up for a free account on Board Game Arena.
  3. Join our Discord server: VirtualGameNight.
