Sat February 16 at 4:00 PM, My house
717 North Washington Street, Bloomington, IN, USA (Map & Directions)
Hi, Is anybody in Bloomington Indiana? It would be nice to meet up and play board games.
Let's meet at my house (717 N. Washington, just north of the square) on the first weekend afternoon when at least a couple of people are available. We have a bunch of different kinds of games and we will also have beer and wine, and maybe we could order a pizza. If you want to bring a game or food/beverage that's great. Yay!

I'm somewhat close. But I'm moving from Scottsburg to Terre Haute this month. So that might throw a wrench into things. Did you have a particular time in mind?

I live in Bloomington and love board games. What have you in mind?

Another Bloomingtonian here. Board games are a great idea.

Louisvillian who loves board games here. If by chance this ended up happening on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, I'd be happy to drive up.

Fantastic! I think a Saturday afternoon this month would be great. Would the 12th or 19th work best? If it's a smallish group we could just meet at my house, which is within walking distance of the square. We have all kinds of games we don't play often enough (including but by no means limited to Scrabble, Carcassonne, Blokus, Ticket to Ride, Scotland Yard, Cityscape, Zombies!!!, Apples to Apples/CAH). It would be lovely if people brought games they like too!

I am new to Bloomington, looking to meet people, and have never been to a MeFi meetup. The only catch is, I work Saturdays til 9:30PM and Sundays til 7:30PM. But if things are still rolling at those hours, I'm game for coming by late. Keep me posted.

OK Rykey. I'll keep you posted and we can definitely take your schedule into account next time!

I won't be able to do either of those weekends. Too busy with all the stuff going on right now. But if y'all want to do this again later down the line once I'm settled, keep me posted. I'd love to get involved.

OK. If it turns out nobody's available at this time, I'll just pick another day in a couple months. That's fine.

have you considered driving a bit north and having it in Indy? It's a bit bigger a population center.

I've got 7 Wonders, Settlers, Pandemic, Shadows Over Camelot, and Small World. So... whenever.

Pope Guilty- I'd love to play those games! Are you available on the 19th?
posted by steinwald at 6:59 AM on January 7, 2013


I thiiiiink so but evens have transpired since I posted that have me needing to wait until at least this weekend to be able to reliably predict my whereabouts over the next couple of weeks.
posted by Pope Guilty at 3:28 AM on January 8, 2013


So I've moved this back to Proposed until we find a time when at least a couple of people are available. How does February 16 look?

Life is crazy and time commitments are difficult to make these days, but logicpunk & I can be considered a 'maybe' for either 1/19 or 2/16. The promise of Cards Against Humanity raises this to a strong maybe.
posted by amelioration at 6:20 PM on January 8, 2013


Cards Against Humanity is definitely on the agenda.
posted by steinwald at 6:26 AM on January 9, 2013


I could probably do 2/16. Cards Against Humanity is definitely a great motivator.
posted by Ephelump Jockey at 7:10 AM on January 9, 2013


Three probably maybes are good enough for me. 2/16 it is.
posted by steinwald at 7:47 AM on January 9, 2013


I think I can swing February 16th. I'll put it on the calendar, but consider me a maybe.
posted by ErWenn at 2:36 PM on January 10, 2013


I'm up in Indy. Might be able to make it down there.
posted by DevilsAdvocate at 3:59 AM on January 17, 2013


I'm in B-town! I can make it! :)
posted by bookshop at 3:08 PM on January 28, 2013


I'm in Indy, too, and might be able to make it down on the 16th. Maybe if enough Indy people are interested we could ride down together? Or create a splinter cell of our own in Indy? Or something?

I'm afraid this Saturday has gotten really crazy for me, and I won't be able to make it. Have a blast!
posted by amelioration at 8:48 AM on February 13, 2013


I think I'm going to have to pass as well. Too much I need to get done here.
posted by DevilsAdvocate at 4:54 AM on February 14, 2013


Sorry to ad to the chorus of cancellations, but I won't be able to make it either. If you want to give this another shot down the line, I'm still open to the idea.
posted by Ephelump Jockey at 2:53 PM on February 15, 2013


OK, no problem. I'm expecting a couple of non-metafilter folks anyway so we'll have a fine time with whoever shows up.
posted by steinwald at 8:07 AM on February 16, 2013


If anybody's around, please stop by anytime.
posted by steinwald at 3:01 PM on February 16, 2013


OK It's over.
