You can’t say “mundane” without “Monday”, and there’s a reason for that! It’s a well-known fact that Monday is the least cool day of the week. It’s time we changed that with BOARD GAMES!
Boring Mondays are gone. Here is what your Monday night looks like now:
Firefighters Pub has a great location attached to the east side of Metrotown, across from Bonsor Community Complex. They’ve got great food and service, the interior is spacious, and the big wooden tables are perfect for board games.
The host will greet you, and ask a few questions about your gaming experience and preferences, then get you settled into a table. Singles are welcome!
There will be a selection of 30+ games, the focus being ones that are easy to learn and fun to play! The host will teach you how to play and answer any questions you might have. Absolutely no reading rulebooks allowed! 😉
If you’re a seasoned gamer and want to bring your own more complex games, of course that’s cool too! The host will help find others who are interested in that kind of game.
People usually order food first when they arrive, and just hang out for a bit, or maybe play a quick card game. I do ask that you buy your meal for the evening at Firefighters Pub, so that we can continue to enjoy this awesome space! There is no cover charge, and no minimum spend.
Beef Dip $10.99 (regular $13.99)
Goose Island IPA (20 oz) $6.08
Gin Fizz $4.56
Pitcher of Budweiser (60 oz) $12.99
By 7 everyone is pretty much settled in, and the real gaming begins!
Then at 8:00 the host will draw the door prizes! That’s right, not only is there no fee to play the games, just by joining the Board Game Night you’ll even be entered to win one of two prizes every night!
$20 gift card for Firefighters Pub
$15 gift card for a local board game store
Pretty cool eh! Mondays will never be the same again.
This is a family-friendly establishment. About half the people will get a drink or two, but you are not expected to and it won’t be weird if you don’t. No minors after 10.
The event officially ends at 9, but you’re welcome to stay later on your own. The kitchen closes at 10, bar at 11.
If you’re going, please RSVP; if you RSVP, please go. A well-attended event helps draw in more people and keep the community growing.
Note: When falling on a holiday Monday, this event will be cancelled for that week. Check the Meetup posting for the latest updates.
Hope to see you there, and happy gaming!

Board games and bubble tea were made for each other! And you can be a part of this amazing feat of nature by going to this meetup, held every Tuesday 6-9pm at Kingsize Bubble Tea & Games on Main St.
The host and venue will supply a selection of games to choose from, or if you have your own you’d like to play, feel free to bring those too.
There is no fee or minimum spend for this event, but we do ask that everyone makes a purchase, as the owner has been kind enough to let us use the space for an extended period of time. They use a lot of fresh ingredients, and their lemon tea is especially popular.
You don’t have to be there at exactly 6:00, but the closer to 6 you arrive the less likely you’ll have to wait for a game to finish so you can jump in. The event ends at 9 but the shop is open till 10, so you’re welcome to stay past 9 to finish up your game.
We play all kinds of games, just let us know what you’ve played and what you like, and we’ll get you set up!
