How to find a tabletop group in Seattle
Looking to expand your Dungeons and Dragons nights? Moved to Seattle and trying to find a gathering? New to tabletops and looking for direction?
For any reason, finding a tabletop role-playing group is exciting, but it can also be daunting. So, the GeekGirlCon gaming team has narrowed down some safe spaces that you can roll into and try out in the Seattle area.
Join GeekGirlCon at for our bi-monthly board gaming event
On the second and fourth Friday evening of each month, members of GeekGirlCon descend on Wayward Coffeehouse in Seattle’s Roosevelt neighborhood for a game night.[It’s always free – and there’s parking and public transit options, too! Find out about times on our Meetup page here, where you can RSVP.]
Our group is inclusive and totally newbie-friendly. We play a wide range of modern board and card games as well as some classics. You might find Codenames, Love Letter, Splendor, King of Tokyo, Völuspá, slash, Alien Frontiers, Locke & Key, Coup, Tokaido, Superfight, The Resistance, Colt Express, Skull and Roses, Settlers of Catan, 7 Wonders, Toc Toc Woodman, FLUXX, and many more!
“Our group of regulars is so welcoming and kind; I often wish I could shed my hosting duties and join in. But rest assured, this is a curated event. No one need ever fear being left out or overlooked. Whether you drop in every month or just a couple times a year, our safe space awaits,” said GeekGirlCon Gaming Event Coordinator Andy Munich.
And don’t forget to mark your calendar’s for GeekGirlCon’s convention weekend in downtown Seattle (from Sept. 30 to Oct. 1). Our gaming floor is a great place to meet people through RPGs, tournaments, and workshops. Learn about GeekGirlCon passes here.
Go to Board Game Night at Mox Boarding House

Try Outsider Comics in Fremont
Outside Comics in Fremont is a women- and LGBTQ-friendly space that promotes diverse points-of-view in art and conversations.
They hold an open and free game night every other Thursday. You can check out their event calendar here.
Currently, Outsider Comics runs board and card games, and every alternating Thursday they have an RPG campaign. Below is a look at some of their tables!
We hope this post inspired you to fill out your character sheet or get your deck ready! A good tip: Try to go to more than one game with a group to get a good feel and dynamic of the table, but it’s always OK to leave if you’re not enjoying the setting.
