Monthly Brooklyn Board Game Meetup
posted January 17, 2013 1:57 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Sat February 9 at 2:00 PM, ocherdraco's apartment (#4D)
192 East 8th Street, Brooklyn, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
Our February meetup will be either on Saturday the 9th or Sunday the 10th. Bring your games, snacks and/or drinks. Please let me know if you're bringing a snack or a drink, so I can say, "Hey, we need more people to bring drinks!" or similar. December's board game meetup lasted 8 hours, and January's lasted 9, so feel free to come over even if you couldn't make it for the first hour or three.
As previously, we'll be starting at 2pm.

Sounds cool! Can't bring much except my Magic The Gathering black deck, but would like to play :)
posted by rosswald at 11:40 AM on January 18, 2013


I can currently do either.
posted by Eideteker at 1:01 PM on January 18, 2013


Then favorite both days, Eideteker, please. (I know it's a weird use of favorites, and if it bothers anyone, remember that you can unfavorite once we've decided the date.)

rosswald, you are under no obligation to bring anything other than yourself! Please come!

Nifty! I've got quite a few I could bring---Lost Cities, Dominion, Forbidden Island, Sequence, Catan---and shall!
posted by ThatFuzzyBastard at 6:53 AM on January 20, 2013


Great! FYI, we've got Dominion and Forbidden Island in-house, so no need to carry those.

Saturday it is!

I'm excited to play Dominion again! I'll bring my 80 versions of Fluxx, Risk, fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies, Set and other smaller games to play while a group spends 3 hours setting up power lines.

We will attempt to bring strange forms of cheetos again. Or maybe go a little crazy and make something.

I am thinking of purchasing a new game before the next meetup. I was thinking Alhambra might be a good choice. Any suggestions?
posted by ocherdraco at 1:22 PM on January 22, 2013


Bringing Carcassonne as usual. Also going to see if I can swipe Dixit from my friend to bring.
posted by Hactar at 8:11 PM on January 22, 2013


I ended up getting an entirely different game: Discworld: Ankh-Morpork. I could not resist the allure of getting to play as Sam Vimes.

I'm putting myself down as Maybe. I'm moving to the city this Saturday and have a few things planned for the 9th, but this sounds like a great way to meet more than my two friends I'll be living with, and if I can spare a few hours I'll come up. I probably won't have room to pack anything hefty as I'm flying in (my favorite right now is Ticket to Ride, but it will unfortunately be left behind with family), but it looks like a big line-up anyway and I hope I won't be thought to mooch if I jump in on a game of Carcassonne or something. And if I don't make it, maybe March!

Forgot - I don't see too many drinks on here so far, so I'll bring some ginger ale or root beer with me. But don't count on me for your fizzy needs, in case I'm tied up.
posted by mcoo at 11:32 AM on January 29, 2013


Oh, I will bring hummus and a six pack again.
posted by Hactar at 1:17 PM on January 30, 2013


OK, I've got y'all down on my calendar. I have a plethora of board games I can bring, including Dixit, RoboRally, Hoity Toity, Carcassone and Castle of Magic. See anything you like?
posted by ursus_comiter at 7:23 PM on February 2, 2013


I've been wanting to try Dixit!
posted by ocherdraco at 11:36 PM on February 2, 2013


Reminder! This meetup is coming up this weekend!

Pretty sure I'll be there again. I'll bring a few games.

I wonder how much snow we're going to get ...
posted by sciencegeek at 4:08 PM on February 6, 2013


Some folks have recently been favoriting the dates I posted at the top of the thread, so I just want to clarify: the date is set at this point, and is not going to change.
posted by ocherdraco at 7:40 AM on February 7, 2013


SNOW DOESNT BOTHER ME! ROOOOAAAAR!
posted by yeti at 1:38 PM on February 7, 2013


ok maybe just a little

Alright, since my last comment, we've gotten the official blizzard warning till 1pm on Saturday. Conveniently, we are planning to start at 2pm!

My current plan: assess things at 10am on Saturday and if the subways are running, we're on. If the subways aren't running, we'll reschedule. Sound good to y'all?

What is the percentage of board game meet ups that have intersected major weather events?

How the monthly game meet up actually works...

I'll be there. My +1 (possibly +2?) may back out. If so, I don't know if I'll have Dixit.

As of this writing, 50%.
posted by ocherdraco at 4:22 PM on February 8, 2013


I plan on coming if its still on.
posted by yeti at 5:00 AM on February 9, 2013


Subways are running, so we are a go. Please come!
posted by ocherdraco at 6:44 AM on February 9, 2013


I will add that the sidewalk in front of our building has been shoveled. We aim to please.

Even if we're not the ones who shoveled them.
posted by ocherdraco at 9:26 AM on February 9, 2013


I'm heading out... any last minute thoughts about what I should bring? Any particular game? Any particular food / drink?
posted by grobstein at 11:47 AM on February 9, 2013


I just awoke from the most glorious of afternoon naps and can't quite persuade myself to go back outside again for a bit.
posted by sciencegeek at 12:27 PM on February 9, 2013


No worries! There will be more opportunities.

MOAR DOMINION

Had a good time again. I'm really bad at Dixit. I think I scored more accidental points on my "discard" turns.

And That Hoity Toity game was fun in a weird way, even though I kept choosing the wrong cards and was still confused near the end. I have no idea how I ended up in second place in that.
posted by yeti at 7:18 AM on February 10, 2013


I think I had imaginary Dominion cards in my dreams last night. Hoity Toity looked like fun; sorry we had to head out.

Next month's meetup ahoy!
