Story Games Hangout

Thursday Nights – 5:30-9:00

Join us each Thursday for an evening of collaborative tabletop and freeform story games at the Heart of the Deernicorn Workshop in downtown Olympia.

Everyone is welcome and no prep or prior experience is necessary. We will teach you everything you need to know right there at the table, so whether you’ve never tried a role-playing game or played ’em all, this meetup is for you!

Introductions and game pitches start promptly at 6pm.

Game Jam

Wednesday Nights – 5:30-9:00

This is a meetup for people who want to work on their tabletop games in progress, find people to playtest their games, or for people who want to play games being worked on by local designers. If you just want a quiet place to work around other game designers, or to learn more about the process of making a game, that works too.

We will meet and give everyone a chance to talk about what they came to the meetup hoping to do, and then we will group up to do those things. My goal is to provide a space that is hate free, safe, and inclusive for everyone, to support the local community in DIY culture, and bringing more diverse voices to the world of tabletop gaming.
