Food, drinks, and a safe space to play Trump the Game. Or other games, if you think you need them. It's gonna be YUUUGE, you guys.
Game night! I'll make something dinner-ish - if you have allergies or other dietary limitations please mention them below. Snacks and drinks are welcome. My house is in Highland Park between the Nook and the golf course (MeMail for address).

We have a decent number of board/card games (Ticket to Ride, Qwirkle, Superfight, Munchkin, Forbidden Island, Pandemic, Taboo, Clue, Jenga, many Trivial Pursuits...) but if you have a favorite, feel free to bring it!

(For the record I was a snarky teenager with snarky friends in 1989 and received Trump the Game as an ironic birthday present. It's basically Monopoly with million-dollar bills and more backstabbing. All the tedium of Monopoly remains, sadly. We can mock it and move on to something actually fun.)

You had me at Making Game Night Great Again! I''ll be there!

Games I have and can bring if needed: Twilight Struggle, Apples to Apples (UK edition), Flapjacks and Sasquatches, Gloom and probably a few others that I'm forgetting.

Also, if you want me to bring my vat of powdered cheese, just say the word!

(Because everything is better with powdered cheese)

This sounds amazing!

Yes! Please bring the cheese. It'll be like a college student's fondue party.

This sounds excellent but - coincidentally, and unfortunately - I will be at a board gaming Con that weekend. Otherwise, I am a big time board gamer and would LOVE to have a Mefi board game night.

Mischief on Grand Ave. is having a game meetup/open house from 10:30-5 next Saturday, if anyone wants to see what's new or pregame game night.

I won't be able to go to the daytime thing because I'm going to a dog show but I'm looking forward to our meetup! What would you like me to bring?

If you can sneak a few clever and well-trained dogs out that would be great, thanks!

Is there anything you guys are allergic or averse to? I was thinking chicken enchiladas, so, anything you like to go with that or for mid-game snacking. I have a decent amount of soda, some beer/wine, and several appropriate substrates for powdered cheese (pasta, popcorn, chips).

I was really looking forward to the meetup, but I'm training for my new job this Saturday. Hope you guys have fun!

Gah! I got caught with a deadline for work that I forgot. I'll try and make it, but it's not looking super great right now :/
