Well, hello there! Thanks for spending some time in our little corner of the web. It means a lot to us because we're a small non-profit with big dreams of doing good in the world. We plan events that channel a love of tabletop gaming into ways to make a difference, hence "board gaming for good." We've raised thousands for charities such as Meow Cat Rescue, the Imagine Guild, and Seattle Children’s Hospital and we don't plan on stopping anytime soon! We invite you to come play with us as we continue our work and host unique tabletop gaming events throughout the year!

The Experience

Our events focus on raising funds for a good cause while celebrating something we love: GAMING! At each of our events, you can expect the following:

Only part of the prize table from our Night of Board Gaming for Good, PAW West Edition 2018.

  • An extensive and impressive lending library available all night that you can play from, with a variety of games to suit many tastes and playstyles. You are also welcome to byog!

  • A SWAG bag of gaming goodies as a thank you for joining us.

  • A large raffle where we give away thousands of dollars worth of games and geeky prizes all donated from generous sponsors. Past sponsors have included Calliope Games, Fantasy Flight Games, Asmodee, Japanime Games, Jenga Giant, Lone Shark Games, Cheapass Games, Czech Games, USAopoly, and SlugFest games, just to name a few.

  • A fantastic dinner, either as a luxurious buffet spread or if you opt for the VIP experience, a special 3 course plated menu.

  • Vouchers to our pop-up game store that you can cash in for new games to add to your collection and of course, play that very night.

  • Be a VIP VIP guests get an upscaled and more exclusive experience! This includes a premium SWAG bag filled with more epic loot (last event's VIP SWAG was valued at more than $200 in games and promo items from our sponsors). As a VIP, you'll also be seated in a private dining room with a view, with other VIPs and honored guests, including local gaming celebrities and influencers. Here you'll be served a plated three course dinner with options exclusive only to VIPS at each course and your choice of two geek-themed drinks from the bar.

The Venue

The View ► Our events usually mention "Top of the World" as a nod to our amazing venue: Seattle's iconic Columbia Tower boasts having the highest publicly accessible floor west of the Mississippi River, and our events take place there on 76th floor. This amazing venue allows us to play board games with the Seattle sunset and nightscape as an incredible backdrop.

The Food ► The exclusive Columbia Tower Club's kitchen provides us with some amazing food! General admission will have a beautiful fine dining buffet that you can visit multiple times throughout your gaming, and VIPs will be served from a grander exclusive menu. 

The Cause

Our beneficiary for the past couple of years has been the Imagine Guild, which supports the Seattle Children’s Hospital, Uncompensated Care program. This program eases the financial burden on parents, allowing them to focus on the most important thing - their child’s health. With today’s unstable healthcare climate, the vulnerable families and kids supported by this program need our assistance more than ever.
