Sacramento Games Portal

Board games, cards, RPG, LARP, CCGs, strategy, trivia, miniatures, etc.


Your first-stop resource for playing table-top games & meeting gamers in Sacramento County!

Whether your thing is classic board games, new strategy games, Euro-board games, party games, cards, CCGs, RPGs, trivia or miniature wargames, if you live in or near Sacramento County, Calif., this is the place to find a local group, store or club right for you!

The sites below will help you find fellow gamers, try out some new games, and generally have a great time.  

We have at least one gaming event each week, both "open gaming" nights (bring-your-own-fave-games) and game-specific events (i.e. Scrabble or Magic the Gathering, etc.).

Event calendars and info about these meetings and the game-specific gatherings can be found at the sites below.   Many also have email list-servs or bulletin boards to communicate with local fellow gamers. 

Have fun exploring,  and hope you can join us!

Sac Boardames meeting locations
