Sat August 17 at 2:00 PM, ocherdraco's apartment (#4D, buzzer #407)
192 East 8th Street, Brooklyn, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
Our August meetup will be Saturday the 17th. Bring your games, snacks and/or drinks. Please post in the thread what you're bringing so others can make sure they don't bring the same thing, and/or so they can drool over the thought of homemade cookies. These meetups usually last 8-10 hours, so feel free to come over even if you can't make it for the first hour or three.
As previously, we'll be starting at 2pm.

Games played last time:
We didn't playtest this either
Elder Sign
The Stars are Right
Power Grid

Wife is out of town, wisdom tooth is out of mouth, and after a long training run in the morning I'll be looking forward to an afternoon of sitting around winning ALL UR GAMES.

I SUSPECT we will still be in town for this round of games, and I am super psyched to come back around for one last hurrah.

We may want to hold off on Power Grid since we played it last time, but then again, this is going to be y'all's last board game meetup before you depart for Boston, yes?

In which case, alle Ihre Kraftwerke sind gehören zu uns!

Unrelatedly, while I have a bunch of people in my home, would someone mind showing me what I'm doing wrong when I try to pump up the tires of my bike? It has been sitting forlornly in the bedroom (or should I say the Dominion Room), getting no use.

That is very sweet but I think you're right about it being a little too much Power Grid! I will sate my ceaseless hunger for nearly undetectable dominance* when we get to Boston.

*actual result of playing Power Grid: losing to grobstein

Sure grobstein beat us all last time, but he clearly cheated by co-opting the power of the state as evidenced by his dominance of communist east Germany. The markets were rigged. RIGGED I SAY!

Sadly I don't think I can come after all this month, as I have another commitment. September, yes?

Does anyone play Titan? I just got the iPad version and am a little bit obsessed. MAYbe we could play a game.

Should we bring Dominion, or parts thereof?

Another great meetup, folks. Here are the games we played:

Through The Desert
Small World
Dungeon Roll
Colossal Arena

Grobstein is moving to Boston, so his various Dominion expansions which have lived at my place are going with him. Thanks for letting us use them for so long!

We're hoping to replace those games over the next few months so that our collective Dominion mania can continue unabated.

Date for the next meetup is still up in the air as I wait for various course syllabi, so I don't yet have anything to report on that front. HOWEVER, I can tell you that I have just placed orders for Dominion, Dominion: Seaside, and Dominion: Guilds, so we will not have to go without.
