Of course you do. And knowing that, we’ve got a series of great weekly, monthly and annual events coming up for you that are perfect for doing both of those things.

First up are our weekly Friday Guided Games series, where we bring you brand new games hosted by their creators and enthusiasts. This is a fun easy way to try new games and meet new people in a friendly neighborhood environment. This month our series features Terrene Odyssey on the 10th, Shadow of the Elder Gods & Skulldug on the 17th and, on the 24th, as part of our very special Party Games Edition hosted by Special Guest JoJo Stiletto, Professor of Nerdlesque, we’ve got Slash, That’s What She Said and Just Four Kicks for you.

Your host, in her natural environment.

Next up is our monthly Queer Geek Boardgame Meetup on the last Sunday of every month featuring brunch drink specials and a particularly gay friendly environment (let’s be real, our environment is always gay, lesbian, trans, poly & queer friendly, that’s just how we do, but on Queer Geek Sundays we really try to go all out).

Our Sunday staff have even been known to cosplay a bit for it.

We’re still trying to find the right look for it. Something that says, “come in, enjoy a mimosa.”

And finally, if you really (a lot of italics this week) want to meet new people and try new games then this (see what I mean?) is your lucky weekend because it’s International Tabletop Day this Saturday which means that we’ll have games and hosts coming in from Passport Games, Laboratory Games and Game Company Number 3, Across the Board Games, A Podcast for All Intents & Purposes and Geek Out Trivia to demo and teach you and your fellow Hillfolk new games in a friendly, welcoming environment all day long.

So come on out! Meet some new people and play some new games. It’s safe, it’s fun, it’s friendly and it’s happening all the time right here at Capitol Hill’s Geek HQ, the Raygun Lounge.
