Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator Training, Setup, and Gaming

I'd like to bring together a casual group to occasionally play Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator at my home (and possibly other venues). Since there's a learning curve to playing this cooperative spaceship bridge crew game, be prepared for some collaborative setup, burn-in, and waiting. But it's fun anyway! Come join me/us!

The Recurrent Mefitraveler

SF or Bay Area mefites: let's do brunch again? Or some sort of evening social activity? I'm visiting your part of the world again during the second and third weeks of August. Some time during the week of August 7 might be better timing for me, though. I promise not to make too many obscure math puns.

East Bay Work Buddies

I am an underemployed person looking to get more structure in my life.

Q2 GameHaus meetup

Time for another GameHaus meetup! No tabletop gaming experience necessary!

We usually get a mix of experienced players to help guide us and people like me, who have never played most of the games, and everyone is really patient. It's always a great time. [more inside]

CANCELLED due to lack of participants

It looks like we will not have enough participants for a useful discussion so I am canceling this meetup. There is a "public" huddle at 11:15 am at 705 Monterey Blvd (a cafe), which I have signed up for - I'm sure anybody would be welcome to attend even if you haven't signed up beforehand. Hope to see you there! The Women's March website has posted the second suggested action (description here), which is to get together with friends and neighbors and decide what issues are most important in your community, and what actions to take about them.

10 actions / 100 days from the Women's March - let's start this

I went to the Women's March in SF with some other MeFites and found it a great experience, so I'd like to keep doing ... something. The organizers of the march have started a campaign to continue the momentum, with 10 suggested actions over the next 100 days. How about we get together and try out the first of these actions? We'll write some postcards to Congress, drink some beer, and encourage each other to not just crawl under the blankets for the next 4 years. [more inside]
