Eric’s Games

COVID-19 April 2022 update: All participants must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Eurogames. Events remain subject to COVID-19 developments and CDC guidance.

Welcome. I host regular strategy game events. You can RSVP for Merrimack Eurogames in this event list.

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. 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. For the regular events, there is no need to bring food or anything, just RSVP via the link above or email me and come. For the Hemidemi events, you should bring your own food and beverage.

We play mostly strategy games. Our games generally are not trivia games, party games, word games, role-playing games, or long war or economic campaign games.
