Fri April 11 at 7:30 PM, Chez Bondcliff
1 North Main Street, Natick, MA, USA (Map & Directions)
What are you doing on Friday, April 11th? My son will be away which means Mrs. Bondcliff and I can, like, have people over and not worry about keeping him up! Want to come over to play some games?
Sorry, I have to cancel due to illness.

We have: Settlers, Ticket to Ride, Apples to Apples, Carcassonne, Cards against Humanity, and a few others. In the basement there is a MAME machine with a bunch of 1980s arcade games, as well as an Atari 2600 if y'all want to take a trip back to the 1980s. Darts and the world's crappiest air hockey table too.

There's enough space that we can spread out and have a couple games going at once.

We can order pizza or grill some burgers/dogs and you can feel free to being something to share. Or not, we're easy!

Bring: Any games you want to play and something to drink. Food to share is optional but I'm sure it would be appreciated. Bring a friend or two, just add them as your +1s or 2s so I know how many to expect.

We have two cats in case you have allergies. One of them is social, the other isn't.

Hey, my husband and I live not far from Natick! It sounds like fun, and we've got a couple of games we could bring -- Sequence, Mille Bornes, and a new zombie-themed card game called They're Coming that I'm dying to play (it was a Kickstarter, and we just haven't had time to figure out playing it yet.)

Drat, I work Friday nights, but that sounds like lots of fun!

A 2600! I'm going to be out of town, but this sounds like good times.

I'll check with my partner to see what we're up to that night. It'd be cool to meet my Secret Quonsar!

Shoot - We'd love to come, but have a friend in from out of town that weekend.

This would be awesome, if it wasn't PAX weekend.

Well I'm not going to PAX, so I might be up for this. I like games.

Darnit! We've got a prior commitment. Sounds like fun!

I'd like to attend, but transit is an issue!

Damn and blast! I would love to make the trek from central Massachusetts but my dance card is already too full this week.

My partner is up for it! We're in!

Oh and I can drive a few folks from the Boston area if anyone needs it!

This sounds really fun! I'll have to miss this one because I'll be out of town, but I want to endorse the idea completely and rally for more like this! (Maybe we'll get nutty and actually host...?)

I know this was last minute, I just sort or realized I had Friday night free. If it works out I'll do another in the future, or maybe we can rotate around other locations.

Looks like there's at least a few interested. I'll go ahead and make it a real thing.
posted by bondcliff at 6:00 AM on April 8, 2014

We're in, too!

Also, if any Boston-area folks want to attend, don't have transportation, but aren't averse to taking the Orange Line out to the hinterlands, we can probably pick a couple of people up at Oak Grove.

Please do another one in the future; chances are too poor that I can make this, but it sounds like a fun time!

Apologies, but I'm going to have to cancel this. I've been fighting something the past couple days and today woke up with full-on crappy throat.

I want to do this and will reschedule for another time.

I'm not sure if people would be up for a weeknight gathering but I might have an opportunity over the next couple weeks.

Aw sorry to hear that. Feel better!!
posted by DiscourseMarker at 7:59 AM on April 11, 2014

The crappy-throat-cold thing has hit my house pretty hard too, alas. I can't do a weeknight gathering, but if you have one on a Friday or Saturday, we're there!

Going to try this again. This time with more notice and less illness.
