The Desktop Raiders Are Looking For New Adventurers


The Central University Tabletop Gaming Association, better known as The Desktop Raiders, is actively looking for new members again. If you are interested in any form of tabletop gaming (from RPGS to card games) contact me or the student association office for membership information, or simply come to one of our open Friday meetings and see if you like it.

The group has been active on campus since the mid-60s, starting out as The Wargame Association. At first it mostly focusing on classic tabletop reenactment of real-world battles, and some fictitious battles that never happened (like what if the Nazis battled the Mongol horde). In the early 70s, with the introduction of Dungeons & Dragons, the started to form a rift between the classic wargamers and the new batch of role-players. Eventually things worked out they changed into the more open gaming organized we known today, allowing all kinds of tabletop games to be played.

With the sudden resurgence of boardgames coming back into fashion in recent years, the group has been expanding at an alarming rate. They have even been starting to have open community game nights so that non-members can try out and learn about all the great new games available these days.

With the growth, the group also got to move up from the small basement room it used to meet in, into much larger meeting rooms and now finally into a several room setup in the community center. This is allowing them to accept a large number of new members and expand the number of different games (and types of games) they can play per meeting.

One room is dedicated to the wargamers, one to the role-players, the central room has several tables for the board and card gamers, and the rest can be used for whatever the current group wants to play, shifting as needed. Come and join the group and be a part of this exciting, fun, and growing group of gaming enthusiasts.

And if you think gaming is just for the geeks (as used to be the common belief), that's no longer the way it is. If these images of some of our members don't show you that all sorts are interested in games these days, then just come of the open days and see for yourself.

The Desktop Raiders Want You

Oh, wow! This sounds so cool! I did some text based online RPGing back in high school but never really played tabletop. How do you get started?

It is cool. I especially love the RPGs. It's a lot of fun and a great way to lose yourself in another world for a while. You should totally try it. But the boardgames are also a lot of fun too.
