Who is LXG?
LXG is a gaming club based in Brisbane, Australia. At LXG we believe in creating a family-friendly gaming space for board, card and war gamers of all ages. Our activities revolve around the face to face interaction offered by board games old and new. We manage Brisbane’s (if not Australia’s) largest board game library to ensure that we have something for all tastes.
The club library has too many games to count. For a full list go to the Games section. In addition to this long list, club members bring their own games in for people to play, meaning that newer releases are also available.
We have over 30 of 8′ x 4′ tables & terrain for fantasy and science fiction miniature wargames, as well as tables suitable for smaller games.
Meetings have a relaxed & social atmosphere. They are an ideal time to learn the rules of a new game, or practice for a tournament.
We have something on offer for gamers of all levels, from newcomers to tournament veterans.
LXG meetings take place on the third Sunday of each month. Meetings last from 9am to 5pm.

Activites Outside Club Meetings
LXG is an outreach club, and we are always happy to show up at outside events andpush the wonders of board games. LXG has frequently run board game events, or a casual gaming lounge at larger gaming events such as GenCon and AusCon.
