Eric’s Games

Welcome. I host regular strategy game events. You can RSVP for Merrimack Eurogames in this event list. The next one is here.

The games we play are called casual games, family games, Eurogames, strategy board games, or German-style board games. The games are designed for everybody to play and typically do not eliminate players before the end of the game. We aim for games from about 1½ to 2½ hours each, although they have been skewing longer lately. I have these games.

New Gamers Welcome

If you are new to these games, see the Wikipedia page or the introduction below.

We frequently play new games and teach the rules before playing, so new players can jump right in. There is no need to bring food or anything except your own preferred beverage, just RSVP via the link above or email me and come.

I provide pizza partway through the event (voluntary donations accepted, changed to Chinese food on holidays). Please be careful about mixing food and games. Some of my games are irreplaceable.


We play mostly strategy games / Eurogames. They have more interesting decisions than classic American board games, generally feature no player elimination, and may have catch-up mechanisms and little or no randomness. Our games generally are not trivia games, party games, word games, role-playing games, or long war or economic campaign games.
