February 12 2021 - Good Morning everyone! we are happy to announce that with the Ohio curfew being lifted, we are also going to open our doors again starting this weekend for MEMBERS ONLY. We will be opening Saturdays and Sundays 2PM both days every weekend for anyone looking to play some games.
All previous rules still apply where we will require masks and no more than 8 people in the club at a time. When entering the club, please wash your hands prior to coming in. We will also be cleaning the space as we open with disinfectant spray and wiping down all surfaces.
Also please note that if we have no game play past the 1st hour of opening the doors those days, we may close early if members don't inform us that they will be late arriving. This is to just keep the space as clean, uncontaminated, and germ free as possible because if there is no one gaming, there is no reason for someone to just sit around waiting. We will communicate via Facebook if we do close early.
Thank you everyone for your patience with all this as well. We didn't want to be closed but we wanted to ensure that our members were staying healthy through these trying times. We would love to see you back to the tables gaming with us and when you are comfortable, we will be here waiting 🙂 See you all soon and Happy Gaming!!

January 15 2021 - Based on the officer votes and poll results, the club will continue to stay closed for the time being as we wait for vaccines to be distributed which will hopefully bring a decline in cases. We appreciates everyone's patience and soon enough, we will be back to the tables playing games. Officers will reconvene Jan 29th for votes and discussion on possibly opening in February.
Remember too, while the club doors aren't open, we still have curbside pickup for borrowing games available by visiting https://www.blackswampgamers.org/ and clicking the "Game Library Checkout Form" (see above) in the top navigation. Fill out the form and we will contact you when it will be ready for pickup.
Everyone have a safe weekend, wash your hands, wear your masks, and Happy Gaming!!

November 14 2020 - We regret to inform our fans that as of today, Black Swamp Gamers will be closing its doors again due to the increase in COVID cases in the area and we feel it our responsibility to keep our members safe. It was mutually decided by the club officers that we will stay closed until Dec 11th and re-evaluate the situation prior to then. We know this is an inconvenience for everyone who has been utilizing the club lately and we feel the same about this unfortunate decision. We do not want to close, same as many other businesses but we are determined to not be part of the problem. We want you all to be healthy and not have to worry about contracting the virus all just because you wanted to play a board game. Your lives mean more to us as a community than being able to play a game that we could play again in the future.
Please stay tuned this week for more information about how we will reinstate our curbside checkout system as well that we used earlier this summer with what seemed like great success. The club officers would like to thank everyone who is still able to support us during these hard times. If you would like to donate to the club, please check out of website and use the DONATE button at the top of the page - https://www.blackswampgamers.org/contact
Hopefully we will be back up and running again next month but until then please, please, please everyone stay safe, WASH YOUR HANDS, and Happy Gaming!
