85 Harvard Ave
Allston, Massachusetts 02134

We have a lot of board and card games available to play. The "house game" is Apples to Apples -- there's always at least one group playing and you can easily jump into it even if you've never played it before. It's the sort of event where you can bring a group of friends or come alone and meet new people. It's a social event not a competitive tournament.

Ages: 21+

Cost: No cover charge with food and/or beverage purchase. The food at the Common Ground is very good. Make dinner plans and then stay for the games.

MBTA Directions: Take the Green Line's "B" train to the corner of Harvard/Comm Ave. Walk down Harvard Ave so that McDonald's is on your right and Marty's Liquors is on your left. The Common Ground is a few blocks ahead on the left at 85 Harvard Ave, after the set of lights. The #66 bus from Harvard Square stops around the corner at Harvard/Brighton Ave in front of Harper's Ferry.

What People Are Saying: Sarah Tomlinson at The Boston Globe said: "It's the perfect chance to make new friends and maybe even emerge as the board games champ you?ve always dreamt you could be." Robert Vassegh, publisher of Cheap Thrills Boston said: "If someone was playing a game, it was definitely a good atmosphere to jump into a new crowd. I met some cool people too!"
