Weekly Trivia Night at George and The Dragon: Fight for Redemption

I'm late with the post, but by gum, it is still happening! After two stunning victories in prior weeks, last week, we had a devastating second-place finish, apparently because some hotshot team from the 1990s came out of retirement and decided to eat our breakfast for us. This cannot happen again. Well, it can, but it'd sure be nice if it didn't. [more inside]

In Iceland for a couple of weekends

Hey! My partner and I are going to be in Reykjavik on September 2nd and 3rd and then again on the 10th. I’ve noticed there’s a statistically improbable number of Mefites there and would love to grab a few drinks with y’all (or just serve as an excuse for a meetup). What do people think?

Meetup on an LA Weeknight Aug. 24-26 (Weds. through Fri.)?

I'm taking a trip up the West Coast and was wondering if any Mefites want to meet up! I've only been to LA once before and saw all the touristy Hollywood stuff (and had In-N-Out :D), so I think someone else will probably have to propose the place/activity . . . [more inside]

MidAmeriCon II / WorldCon 2016

Any mefites going to be in the KC area for MidAmericon II this week and interested in making an IRL happen? Edit: I'm going to go ahead and throw something on the calendar - if it turns out this time/day is especially bad, we adjust as needed. I'll be around most of the day on Friday for sure if we wanted to do something during the day instead.

Big Damn Heros!

I've been obsessed with RPGs since high school but only fairly recently started actually playing them. Now I find I'd like to run a game from time to time and I thought mefites would make a good group of people to play with! [more inside]
