The Eau Claire Board Game Group (or ECBGG for short) is a thriving local board game group with over 450 local members. After hitting the pause button due to COVID-19, they are excited to start the game in the New Year.

“We use the group to share the opportunity to play games with different people in the community who share the same interest,” said founder Brandy McQueen, “whether they are new to the hobby or for ages. decades. “

Every week, they organize Friday Night Games at Clairemont Comics in Eau Claire. This year, they are having a New Years game and luck party starting at 10 a.m. on Friday, December 31. Events like this help shatter the stereotype that players are simply hiding in their basements.

“ECBGG gives people the opportunity to get their hands on something they might never have known existed before,” said McQueen. “We are creating safe spaces for people to not only talk about things related to gambling that they might not have the chance to talk about in their day-to-day life, but also a space for them to also talk about. work on themselves internally. “
