Sun February 16 at 2:00 PM, Sibrax's House
13807 Southeast 28th Street, Vancouver, WA, USA (Map & Directions)
It's a new year and time for some new games!
Over the holiday I've picked up City of Horror, Forbidden Island, and Suburbia. We also have Dominion, Settlers of Catan, RoboRally, K2, Cards Against Humanity, and many others. No prior board game experience is necessary; new players are always welcome.

Not sure as to my availability, but I'll be there if my day is free. Unfortunately I won't actually know more than a day or two in advance.

I put myself down for "maybe" until I check my schedule, but I'll probably be there.

Yes! This seems like a good first MeFi meetup… any of those days work for me.

I didn't know the original Vancouver was on National Forest Development Road 6310 near Estacada!

It's not! That's just a, er, rounding error?

Here's the actual meetup location if that's what you're looking for.

Doesn't sound like there are any objections to the 16th then. What about time? Say, 2:00?
posted by Sibrax at 3:57 PM on January 27, 2014

2:00pm sounds pretty good!

It is official!

I like this idea! I am new to meetups and pretty unfamiliar with board games, but this looks like a bunch of fun and I will try to make time for it.

Excellent! Hope you can make it.

Looks like I'll be studying for a midterm....hopefully can make the next one.

Yeah, now that the holidays are over we should be able to get back to monthly game days.

Oh, and we'll have the usual drinks and snacks available tomorrow, and we'll decide on dinner once we get a final head count.

I think I'm going to bow out of Game Days. It's nothing personal, I've just slowly begun to realize that while the socializing is fun, I'm no good at games in general and I find myself more frustrated by them than enjoying them. Y'all have fun, and I'll see you at non-game meetups!
posted by Greg_Ace at 2:15 PM on February 15, 2014

I'm sorry you feel that way Greg and that's too bad because that means fewer chances to hang out with you.

I think I might have to study for a midterm too. In addition, our car mysteriously (ie we did not leave the lights on etc.) has a dead battery. So it's actually in Vancouver at the dealer, but as a result, we may not be?

Even if I don't make it this time, I'm up for more game day meetups and non game day meetups in the future. (Although in all honestly and uncoolness, I could never play CAH again and yet still feel like I've lived a complete and fulfilling life... unless we want to write up some cards of our own to shuffle in or something. It's the same jokes over and over to me.)

All the more incentive to increase other, non-game hangouts, right?
posted by Greg_Ace at 7:39 PM on February 15, 2014

Oh that is too bad. If there's anything I can do to make game day more enjoyable/inclusive, please let me know. "No CAH" is a perfectly reasonable request. As much as I love it, it's not for everyone all the time. We could also pull out the newer expansions and just play with those if that would be better.

Well, blerg. Today's going to be too busy for me after all. Hopefully I'll catch the next one.
posted by knuckle tattoos at 7:50 AM on February 16, 2014

Oh, hm. I guess this is today! Maybe I'll make some brownies? Fair warning: I make them with nuts.
posted by Renegade Duck at 9:52 AM on February 16, 2014

Oh hey, I can make this! Does anyone need a ride, esp. from inner SE Portland or points in between?
posted by Tsuga at 9:55 AM on February 16, 2014

Arg, I hate missing a gaming meetup but logistically this is just ending up not making sense today. Y'all play the hell out of some games for me, I'll catch you next time. Sorry I'm missing your maiden meetup voyage, Renegade Duck!

We do have cupcakes and brownies already, but there's no such thing as too much dessert.

Hey I don't know if we're gonna--

Ha, well, more to go around!

Hey, posterity, I went after all! Thanks for a fine time and for rides to and from.

Enjoyed learning K2 (finally!) and Arabian Nights, which I'd been sorta-interested in but highly skeptical about for many months now. Will probably pick up K2 for myself at some point and would definitely play AN again.
