Board Games in Brooklyn! (Now with less Hurricane)
posted November 5, 2012 8:48 AM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Sat December 1 at 2:00 PM, ocherdraco's apartment (192 E 8th St #4D)
192 E 8th St, Brooklyn, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
Let's try again, shall we? We have Pandemic, Ticket to Ride, Scrabble, and Risk, and I will probably buy Small World or Dominion before this comes around. We have three tables for playing games, and will provide a small amount of snacks. Bring snacks and drinks that you'd like to have. I propose that we do this on either Saturday, Dec. 1, or Sunday, Dec. 2. Once again, we'll start at 2pm.
Regarding snacks: I know there will be at least one vegan in attendance, so vegan-friendly snacks would be appreciated.

I'm interested, and vote for Saturday.

(And can bring whatever games you like; I can post a list sometime soon.)

There's a slim chance I can't do Sunday. But I remain enthusiastic about board game meetups, regardless of my ability to attend.

The afternoon of Saturday, December 1st would be great! I'm happy to bring a variety of snacks both vegan and non-vegan.

Okay, I'm going to go ahead and declare that it will be Saturday, since that seems to be the preference.

Oh yay!

I just bought Small World. I'm excited!

Now without everything shutting down early, I'll bring Carcassonne.

I really hope to be able to make this one. I don't know if I'll be bringing my boyfriend because he hibernates on the weekends.

Sunday is somewhat better for me.

Saturday! The games that I own are listed here.

If you're not familiar with any of these games:
+ Small World.
+ Ticket to Ride.
+ Pandemic.

(I love TableTop.)

I need to replace my lost Fluxx deck. I may pick up Star Fluxx if I can...

To be clear, we are sticking with Saturday for this one.
posted by ocherdraco at 9:33 AM on November 6, 2012


I will try to make it and if I can I can bring Lost Cities or Forbidden Island.

How late do you think you guys might go?
posted by loriginedumonde at 4:14 PM on November 8, 2012


I am happy to go pretty well into the evening. We'll play it by ear.
posted by ocherdraco at 6:10 PM on November 8, 2012


I'm going to make it a point to stare at this page that day.

I can't make it on Saturday, but I'd definitely be interested in the future.
posted by soonertbone at 11:00 AM on November 25, 2012


Reminder: This board game meetup is coming up this Saturday! Bring your favorite games, snacks and drinks, and we'll have a grand old time.
posted by ocherdraco at 11:07 AM on November 28, 2012


I will bring Agricola. Also if someone else can bring Catan (my former roommate has reclaimed his), then I can bring Cities&Knights, which is clearly the best expansion of the original.

I realized I am dreadfully overbooked this weekend, but this is one I'm not going to miss. The boyfriend, OTOH, is likely to show up near the end.
posted by TrishaLynn at 5:58 AM on December 1, 2012


Great! The apartment's all set, and ready for game time!
posted by ocherdraco at 9:40 AM on December 1, 2012


I am so busy and jammed from procrastinating. Might wind up here a little late.
posted by grobstein at 9:45 AM on December 1, 2012


Running about 30-40 min late. I never give myself enough time to do laundry and I mistimed the trains/busses.
posted by Hactar at 10:20 AM on December 1, 2012


Be there in 20-30
posted by yeti at 10:47 AM on December 1, 2012


No worries if you're running late, y'all.
posted by ocherdraco at 10:51 AM on December 1, 2012


Would it be sensible to show up around 5 or would people be getting tired and winding down?
posted by grobstein at 1:31 PM on December 1, 2012


Please come! We'll just be starting Round 2 (new games!).
posted by ocherdraco at 1:36 PM on December 1, 2012


Will be like 515
posted by grobstein at 1:59 PM on December 1, 2012


That was delightful! Games played this time include Tsuro, Small World, Race for the Galaxy, Carcassonne, and RoboRally. Photos here.

If you missed it, never fear! We'll shortly be announcing the date for January's board game meetup.

Also someone left a tote bag (3 images of Italian cities on it).
posted by ocherdraco at 7:22 PM on December 1, 2012


Thanks for organizing, this was great! Can't wait till next time.
posted by grobstein at 9:02 AM on December 2, 2012


Thanks for hosting! I look forward to next time.

That was my bag. It was thin and started to get a hole, so you can toss it.
posted by yeti at 1:11 PM on December 2, 2012


Okay, will do.
posted by ocherdraco at 7:07 PM on December 2, 2012


Next meetup posted! Come one, come all!
