I realize this may be a long shot, but I think it's worth a try. I'm looking to find (or help organize) a group to play "classic" board games and card games. I know there are gaming groups in the Appleton area - I even tried a couple of them - but they're focused on what they call "European" board games. I'm looking to play things like Risk, Monopoly, Sorry, Scrabble, etc. I'm also interested in card games like Pitch (I would LOVE to find people who play 7 or 10 point pitch), Canasta, Spades, etc.

I want to be sure a couple of things are clear. First, I live in a small apartment and really can't host. I'll be happy to help with organization and by contributing games. Second - I tried this a few years ago in another community, and somehow gave the impression that "playing board games" was some sort of secret code for trying to start a swingers group. That is NOT what I'm trying to do - I'm absolutely serious about playing board and card games. Finally - I enjoy playing games, but I'm not terribly serious or competitive about it. I don't really have any preferences about age or gender (I'm 58 and male, if that matters), and experience level isn't important at all.

If this sounds like something you might be interested in, email or text me, and hopefully there will be at least a few of us so we can get something started.

UPDATE - I have had a couple of responses, so I think there might be some hope. If you didn't want to be the first, there are others!!!
