    Today, Governor Inslee issued a stay at home order that will come into effect in the next 48 hours.

    Pursuant to this order, Metro Seattle Gamers will be closed to at least April 8, 2020.

    Metro Seattle Gamers has just learned that new public health orders will be issued by the county and state, effective tomorrow March 16th.  These orders will further tighten the distancing requirements, specifically:

    • Restaurants, bars, dance halls, clubs, theaters, health and fitness clubs, and other similar indoor social or recreational venues must cease operations until March 31, 2020.

    Even though, to the best of our knowledge, no members of the club have been infected or are suspected of harboring an infection, Metro Seattle Gamers is now closed pursuant to this anticipated order.

    Yesterday, March 11, 2020, new state and local public health orders were issued by Governor Jay Inslee and Dr. Jeff Duchin, Public Health Officer for Seattle & King County. The orders apply to groups of less than 250 persons and emphasize maintaining a physical separation between individuals of 6 feet or more for times longer than 10 minutes.

    Pursuant to those orders, Metro Seattle Gamers is operating on a limited basis.

    • All scheduled events are canceled.
    • Club members will have restricted access to the club provided that they follow the order's physical separation policy and follow the club's cleaning requirements.

    The club shall remain in this status until such time as the orders have been updated.

    These actions are precautionary: at this time we are not aware of any our members having been infected with the Covid-19 virus or who are under suspicion of having it.

    Metro Seattle Gamers has moved one floor almost directly above our old location to Suite 301 in the Nickerson Marina Building. All other contact information remains the same.

    Our new space has a foyer, a better layout in the main room, and a larger RPG room. 

    We have new live game storage racks.

    And we have a much better view (Lake Washington Ship Canal at dusk).

    Nickerson Marina has restored water service to our building. All restrooms are functional.

    There is a planned outage to complete the repair between 10 am and 11 pm, Monday July 1st.

  • 28 Jun 2019 4:22 PM | Scot McConnachie (Administrator)

    The Nickerson Marina has reported that the water line to the property is out and waiting for repairs. The restrooms in our building are temporarily closed.

    In the meantime, the nearest fully functioning public restrooms are five minutes drive away at the Fishermen's Terminal building, in the corridor between the Bay Cafe and the Highliner pub. Other public restrooms are at the Interbay Athletic complex one block south of Dravus street and west of 15th Avenue West.

    Nickerson Marina has assured us that they will inform us when water service has been restored to the Nickerson Marina Building. We will relay that information as soon as we receive it.

    The annual St. Jude's Rock'n'Roll Marathon and construction will be affecting traffic in the vicinity of Metro Seattle Gamers on Sunday, June 9th.

    All day expect the following:

    •  The SR99 tunnel will be closed for construction work.

    From the early morning to the early afternoon, expect the following:

    • West Nickerson Street eastbound will be closed, including to Metro Transit.
    • West Nickerson Street westbound will be open but expect interruptions. Metro Transit will not stop near the club.
    • The Ballard Bridge will be open but traffic will be constricted.
    • The northbound lanes of Aurora Ave. N. will be closed, including on both sides of the Aurora Bridge.

    As a reminder, there is an alternate way to the club from the east by turning from Nickerson Street north onto 3rd Avenue West, and then going west onto West Ewing Street, past another Marina, turning right to stay onto West Ewing Street, and then passing the Foss shipyard next to the club's location. To see a map of this route go to the following web page:

    The marathon will be running on other streets as well. For more information on Marathon related street closures, here is a link to their PDF:

    Due to multiple winter storms, MSG is operating on a restricted basis through Tuesday, February 12th. It is possible that a number of scheduled game sessions will be canceled during that time.

    If you do come to MSG, be advised that the main entrance route is steep and still has ice on it. Be cautious for black ice and pay attention to the weather forecast.

    W. Nickerson Street is mostly clear except between lanes.

    Unless you are driving a four wheel drive vehicle we advise you not to attempt to exit by driving up the main access route. See the club map for the alternate approach route.

    Below are some photos taken on Sunday morning. One group did meet at the club today with reduced attendance.

    Main Route from 11th Ave. W. - not advised for two wheel drive vehicles going uphill. Given the slope, pedestrians are advised to be very cautious, or to not come by this route.

    Alternate Route, 6th Ave. W to W. Ewing Pl. and going west along the canal waterfront - This route is level but snow covered. Two wheel drive cars should be able to handle this route; the problem for pedestrians is the length of the walk. Pedestrians should exercise reasonable caution when crossing snow-covered ground.

    The parking lot itself is level with snow, ice, and slush. Once on the dock, the pedestrian access is under a roof and snow free.

This is a good spot to place your secondary navigation gadget, like Navigation links, or Secondary menu.

The club is open when members are playing games, led by a key holder.

Our clubhouse is located at:

Nickerson Marina Building
Suite 301
1080 W Ewing Pl
Seattle, Washington
