Got a friend from out of town who wants to get brunch that day, not sure how long it'll take, but never fear, your most reliable guests will be there eventually!

I've recently acquired two new games that we'll get to try out at this meetup: Coup, a bluffing game where players try to eliminate their rivals via theft, assassination, and—of course—coups; and Splendor, in which players collect gems and use them to build merchant businesses and attract the attention of nobility.

(I bought Splendor with the gift card I got for completing the trial section on the MCAT. So, you can thank the AAMC if you like it!)

I've got Kittens in a Blender which I will bring! It's much less horrifying than the name implies.

I think I'll be away, so I am now incredibly sad I don't get to find out more about Kittens in a Blender!

Just thought to check this as I'm in NYC for the weekend at the end of the month. Missed it by a week. Alas.

Darnit! We'll miss you!

Damn, timing didn't work out. Is there likely to be a board game meet up in June?

If there is one, it'll be the weekend of the 28th, given that I'm out of town for all other weekends that month, but that's my birthday, and I haven't yet decided whether I want to devote my birthday to hosting a meetup.

If not, there certainly will be one in July.

If there is interest for a month when ocherdraco can't host, +1 and I can probably step up and do it. (Though I suspect we won't be as great at the job as she is.)

Sounds like a busy month! I hope you have a wonderful birthday!

Okay, July it is, gotta join the fun again!

We're a little behind in getting ready today; if you arrive on time, you are going to get to watch us do some cleanup!

I may be there but not till later, after 4, my cats back at the vet :(
posted by SpaceWarp13 at 11:04 AM on May 24, 2014

Poor kitty! No worries—I think everyone's going to get here on the later side today.

Oh, and also we are done with getting the place ready, so there is no longer any danger of walking in on us frantically taking out the recycling.

Also also: if the buzzer doesn't work (which it wasn't earlier) call me at (646) 484-8636 and I'll come let you in.

Still at the vet they've brought out folding chairs.

Hugs for you!
