My fancy gaming table has finally arrived, and it's time to take it for a test... drive? There will be the usual assortment of board and card games to choose from (or bring your own!). Food details inside.

I/we can make the 28th or 29th. We are out of town the 14th - 22nd.

Also we just got our copy of my brother's company's new game, Truths Too Terrible, so we'll bring that along and do some Lovecraftian detecting maybe.

nu and I have something the morning of the 28th. I don't think we have anything on the 29th.

Also, IRL emails now come from cortex! Changes begin.

Ok, does the 29th not work for anybody?
posted by Sibrax at 11:11 AM on March 5, 2015

15th for me is also out, because the 16th is double-finals-day woooo*

* not so woo really

The 15th is also out for me, for finals reasons.

Also I'm really stoked for Truths Too Terrible.

Aw, I committed to bike-related events. Have a blast with the new table!

That's too bad. Next time, then!

Game day is almost here! For food, there is a great Thai chicken place nearby that opened recently. We will take orders once people arrive, but if you plan on joining us late and would like us to pick something up, please let me know.

Unfortunately, they do not have any non-meat options, so we will also have some cheese pizza available. If there's something else you'd like us to have on hand, let me know that, too.

For dessert, there will be sugar cookies. See you on Sunday!

Oh awesome, a chance to try another version of khao man gai! That sounds yummy.
posted by Secretariat at 7:12 PM on March 22, 2015

I know we already have plenty of options, but I picked up a couple new games, too: Camel Up and Sheriff of Nottingham.

My weekend plans fell through, so--if it's OK for a total gaming noob to participate, I believe I'll drive down! (A mature person, of course, would use her newly-free time to catch up on adult-type home maintenance chores, which, bleah.)
posted by Kat Allison at 12:36 PM on March 28, 2015

Home maintenance is for squares. Come on down! And most of the time with any given game we end up playing at these, most folks playing haven't played it before, so you've got nothing to worry about.

I don't do chicken and Nick doesn't do dairy so I hope there's something in there for us. Or maybe we'll eat before.
posted by fiercekitten at 5:24 PM on March 28, 2015

Noobs are always welcome!

As long as no one person objects to both cheese pizza and chicken, I think we're ok food-wise. I am a bit concerned about your allergies, though, fiercekitten. We've cleaned the common areas, but the dog will be here, and I'm afraid we can't isolate him (he freaks out and is likely to hurt himself). I don't want to discourage you from coming, but I don't want you to be miserable either.

I notice the Thai place also has Khao Kamoo, which is pork and rice, and Kanom Bang Ping, some sort of sweet milk toast stuff. No idea if either of those sound good to you, but they sure are fun to say. Bang Ping!
posted by Secretariat at 11:23 AM on March 29, 2015

Bang Ping into the rooooom
(you order Thai food)
Bang Ping all over yooooou
(hey here's a napkin)

Yard work has done us in for the day. See y'all another day.

Excellent meetup. So full of food, too.
posted by Secretariat at 6:33 PM on March 29, 2015

Thanks for coming out, everybody!
posted by Sibrax at 10:18 PM on March 29, 2015

Still full, but I did have sugar cookies with my coffee this morning. Thanks!
