Welcome to the Portland Area Games Workshop Players email list. We are set out to unify the disparate groups in the Portland Area. Our target audience is dedicated players who enjoy playing Games Workshop products. This list is for the discussion of ALL Games Workshop wargames. To clarify that is Warhammer 40k (all editions), Warhammer (all editions), Space Fleet, Space Hulk (all editions), Battlefleet Gothic, Man O' War, Epic 40K, Mordheim, Necromunda, Bloodbowl (all editions) and Warmaster, Inquisitor and basically anything connected to the 'GW Hobby' as we like to call it. Sensible discussion preferable but not compulsory...

GamersFarAfield Yahoo Group Mailing List

We are an open board game discussion forum which includes individual gamer enthusiasts as well as members of various game groups in the Portland/Vancouver area and surrounding areas (nearby parts of OR and WA). The list is patterned after other successful "coalescent" gaming entities such as Unity Games and the SoCal Gaming groups. It is aimed at discussing board and card games with the emphasis is on German/Euro/Designer style boardgames (Settlers of Catan, Acquire, Euphrat & Tigris, Union Pacific, Carabande, etc) but "classic" boardgames and dexterity games (like Crokinole) are discussed and played as well. It also serves as a meeting place to find open game events where you can play and allows local gamers to keep in touch with each other. This will hopefully serve as both a forum and a resource for interested board/card/dexterity gamers in the area. Enjoy!

CorVallis Gamers Yahoo Group Mailing List

Discussion group for gamers in the "heart of the Willamette valley" region of Oregon: Corvallis, Albany, Lebanon, Salem, etc. We meet to play board games mostly, but also enjoy card games, wargames, group games, and other formats.
