Welcome to the Board Game Basel association website!
We are a non-profit association of boardgamers located in Basel (Switzerland). The aim is to provide a place to meet and play. We want to create a community of boardgamers to share interests, information and meet new friends.
But, aren't board games just for children? No! There is an enormous world out there related with board games that are aimed to youngsters and adults. The mechanics for playing, the ways of thinking and methods to interact with other players are far beyond than those that people knows in general. Playing board games should not be relegated to the childhood. There are great benefits if we grow old keeping an active brain, and board games are excellent for this. They improve skills like memory, pattern-detection, planning ahead, self-confidence, learning from experience and social interaction among others. Even more, there are studies that claim an important relationship between leisure activities, like playing board games, and a lower risk of developing mental problems in old age. And you even have a fun time!
