Philadelphia Monthly Board Game Meetup
posted February 6, 2013 4:46 AM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Sun March 3 at 2:00 PM, Frankford Hall
1210 Frankford Avenue, Philadelphia, PA, USA (Map & Directions)
Let us escape the darkness and cold and go play board games together!
February seems to be a bust, so we'll meet the first weekend in March.

As always, we'll be at Frankford Hall from 2 p.m. until we're done, generally around 6ish. Bring games if you have them. Newcomers welcome!

Our schedule is kinda nuts until the beginning of March or so but the 23rd would work slightly better than Sunday. However, I'm not 100% sure we could make either. Fingers crossed! I needs me some Mefi gaming!

I would prefer the 16th/17th, but can do the 23rd/24th if that's better for everyone.

I won't be able to make any Feb date, so I'll catch everyone next month.

I can't do the 23rd (Chris Marker retrospective t IHP) but the 24th works.

Should we just admit that February is a terrible month and plan something for early March? How's March 2/3 or 9/10?
posted by jessypie at 8:35 AM on February 7, 2013


Both of those March dates fall during my spring break = perfect.

Sure, that's fine.

At the donut meetup today, there was some discussion of Sunday, March 3. How does that sound?

March 3 works for me!

Confirmed for March 3! If this was a terrible decision, let me know, but I'm hoping that weekend works well since nothing in February seemed to work for most of the group.

Hey in case everyone else missed that this is confirmed (like I did)... it's confirmed for March 3rd! Come forth and drink and game!

This sounds great. What games do you all play?
posted by snottydick at 12:31 PM on February 15, 2013


All of the games.

I usually bring Fluxx, Carcassonne, Pandemic, Last Night on Earth and Dominion. Of those, I've played at least one round of Pandemic and Fluxx at each meetup, a few games of Carcassonne, and Dominion once or twice. We generally have enough people for two groups. I've never managed to play a game I haven't brought but I aim to change that.

Bring anything you want to play!

Excellent. If anyone has any game requests, please let me know. My game list can be found on Board Game Geek.

I will be there!

I like Eurogames and worker placement games a lot. If anyone has Lords of Waterdeep, that's a fun worker-placement based on a D&D setting that is really fun. I also like Settlers, and would love a chance to play Pandemic, Fluxx, or Last Night on Earth! I've watched the TableTop of all three of those, and they look hella fun.

I think my boyfriend and I might be able to make it! We are NY based but he used to live in Philly, and we are visiting for the weekend. I, as you can see, am a Mefite, and he is a gamer. Me too sometimes.

Yay! More is always merrier. Let us know if you need help finding the place / clues as to who we are. ("The people with the games" may not be as obvious as it seems. Maybe we can make a sign again.)

Hooray! We'd love to have you, mlle valentine!

I'm fighting a cold so I won't be there. Have fun!

I can't amke it after all. See you next month

I have to make a quick run into town so I may be a bit late. Hopefully no later than 2:30.
posted by Diskeater at 10:23 AM on March 3, 2013


Aw, sorry to hear not everyone can make it today. I'm heading to Frankford Hall soon and hope to see a bunch of you there!

For anyone joining us for the first time, I'm wearing a black long-sleeved shirt and a brown plaid scarf, and I'll have a bright blue backpack. I'll update again with our table location if nobody else does that first.

A few of us are here! Head to the right, second table from the wall.
posted by DoubleLune at 10:51 AM on March 3, 2013


I'm running late, but on my way
posted by lazaruslong at 11:37 AM on March 3, 2013


So much fun. Thanks for having us, Philly!
