LOBA is the Louisiana Open Boardgamers Association of Lake Charles. We meet on the first Saturday of every month between 3pm and 8pm to play board games.
We welcome new gamers. Gateway games, fillers, dexterity games, strategy games, and war games will be available to play, but please bring your favorite as well! These are not your old-school board games. There is a huge variety of games at each LOBA event, including the latest Euro-style and designer games. They involve more player decisions, interaction, and fun. All rules are taught. Regardless of your favorite board game, LOBA exists to provide a safe and clean environment so that people of all ages can enjoy the hobby of board gaming and enjoy interaction with other people with similar interests.
The types of games that you will find at LOBA meetings include a wide variety of board and non-collectible card games. While the majority of games played at ROBA events tend to be European-style games, there is also room for board war games (i.e., War of the Ring, Axis Allies, etc.), or traditional board games (Scrabble, RISK, Monopoly, etc.).
The types of games you will NOT find at LOBA events are collectible card games (CCGs), collectible miniature games (CMGs) or role-playing games (RPGs).
Bring your family and friends. There is no admission charge. LOBA provides snacks and soft drinks at a nominal cost and feel free to bring your own food, but please no alcoholic drinks or game-unfriendly food (e.g., Cheetos). There is also a trade table where you can sell or trade your games.
