Artemis in South Berkeley (second meetup)!

We had great success testing and playing different configurations of Artemis on 7/29, with 3 regular MeFites, a couple of irregular ones (me and jenquat), and an outsider remoting in from Sausalito, and it's time to schedule another one. [more inside]

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!

DragonCon 2015 Missed Connections Thread / Meetup Coordination

Labor Day weekend is almost upon us again, and that means DragonCon in Atlanta. (Please don't call it Dragon*Con, they had their *-hole removed two years ago at no small expense.) Even though an actual organized MeFi meetup is not likely to survive everyone's various convention plans, we can at least use this thread to talk about those plans. NOTE: like last year, the time and place listed are for the registration line, the event itself lasts Thursday-Monday, and is spread across 5 high-rise hotels and a nearby convention center.

(S)NES Throwdown

I'm having a small but cutthroat NES/SNES tournament at my house near Old Mill station tomorrow night. We'll be playing games chosen at random from the entire NES/SNES catalogue (emulated on a hacked Wii with Classic Controllers). We'd welcome a few more participants. [more inside]

Road trip to Fun Spot / Classic Video Game Museum in Laconia, NH

Jump some barrels, chase some ghosts and recharge your Superzapper, we’re making a road trip to Fun Spot in Laconia, New Hampshire! This is the home of the Classic Arcade Game Museum (list of games) as seen in the documentary The King of Kong. Seriously, did you see that list of games? Go look at it again. I’ll wait. They also have a ton of pinball machines and some other stuff. It's going to be awesome, you should totally come. [more inside]
