Sat February 11 at 2:00 PM, Game Haus
1800 S Brand Blvd, Glendale, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
Howzabout we kick off 2017 with a little fun and laughter by restarting our semi-regular meetups at Game Haus for a few hours of games? Game Haus 1800 S Brand Blvd #107 Glendale, CA 91204
If you've never been, Game Haus is tabletop gaming cafe. They have over 10,000 games, and for a $5 cover charge you can play all the games you want. There is a small cafe but they don't serve alcohol. People mostly forget about their phones, and at times it can be hard to hear over all the laughter.

It's usually first come, first served, but once we have a count we can reserve a table with a credit card. (MeFites who are able have been generous about using their card, but that's not a guarantee.)

Also, they love us!

Oh, and don't worry at all if you don't know how to play any games! I didn't know any of the games I played and that goes for almost everyone else. We'll even do an open-hand run-through if it's a bit confusing.

If you are interested, throw out some January dates and times and I'll set up a poll.

Thank you for proposing this! I can't do the weekend of the 31st or the weekend of the 7th, but otherwise I'm pretty sure I'm flexible.

Game Haus is excellent and I've been looking for another opportunity to go!

Saturdays or Sundays from the 7th onwards are looking good for me.

All January weekends work, except for 1/21-22. Yay! Such excite!

I'd love to make this one! I'm availabile a fair amount of time on the weekends. I have conflicts on the afternoon of the 7th, all-day on the 8th, evening on the 20th, morning on the 28th, all-day on the 29th, and I'm up in the air about the 19th and 21st. I'm also free from midafternoon into the evening some weekdays.

Should we bump this up to include February?

At the moment--yes i am available weekend evenings--i prefer Saturdays.
And Every other Thursday evening is good starting with Jan. 5th.

Room 641-A, why don't you set up a poll including the first two weekends of February? That way we can plan and save the date.
posted by LeftMyHeartInSanFrancisco at 6:26 AM on December 31, 2016

Yeah, let's throw in the first two February weekends as well.
posted by Goblin Barbarian at 7:18 AM on January 2, 2017

Happy New Year! I set up a Doodle poll and included a choice of earlier or later start time for each day. Hopefully that will streamline the next step. If you don't have a preference please check BOTH boxes for the day! (Meetups typically last four hours.)

You guys. I moved here in October and have been missing my board game friends. I'm very excited. Some friends invited us over for "board games" and we played trivial pursuit. I was not amused.

As of right now, the weekend of Feb 11-12 has the most votes, with four votes for afternoon times on each day. There are more in Feb with three votes, so I'll give this another week or so.
posted by Room 641-A at 6:51 AM on January 6, 2017

I really am looking forward to this get together and at the same time my calendar is starting to fill up for future weekends!

Perhaps we should pick a time/date soon so interested parties can safely set the date aside and we can start the process of figuring out reservation logistics?
posted by Goblin Barbarian at 10:47 PM on January 11, 2017

Sorry, the time got away from me. I'm going to choose Saturday, Feb 11 daytime as it ties for most responses and is farthest out, giving people time to find this if they haven't already. We can adjust the time if needed.
posted by Room 641-A at 6:24 AM on January 12, 2017

Thanks again for organizing this! I am pretty sure I can make it and will probably +1, but need to doublecheck that there's not a conflict I don't know about yet.
posted by Alterscape at 12:50 PM on January 13, 2017

Woot! Thanks for setting this up!
posted by Celsius1414 at 12:26 AM on January 17, 2017

How far in advance does one reserve a table for a group of this size? I'm not familiar with Game Haus' reservation process.
posted by Goblin Barbarian at 9:15 AM on January 30, 2017

I've been slammed but I'm going to call tomorrow.
posted by Room 641-A at 5:55 PM on January 31, 2017

Would it be possible to start at 3 instead of 2? I have a meeting at my community garden from 1-2. Thanks.

Thanks for organizing this, Room 641-A. This'll be my very first meet-up and I'm really looking forward to it.
posted by LeftMyHeartInSanFrancisco at 10:49 PM on January 31, 2017

They just need 24 hour notice, so let's try to get a new headcount by Monday. Im

Would it be possible to start at 3 instead of 2?

That works for me, how about everyone else?

I'm so excited for this!!
posted by Room 641-A at 4:44 AM on February 3, 2017

I just realized I didn't put my +1 in the app even though I talked about it. Hopefully not too late. Starting at 3 should work for me.
posted by Alterscape at 6:52 AM on February 3, 2017

If you haven't confirmed yet please do so I can call and reserve spots for us.
posted by Room 641-A at 1:16 PM on February 6, 2017

I've made reservations for 9 people on Sat Feb 11 at 3pm:

Attending (9)
Room 641-A
Goblin Barbarian
Atrahasis (+1)
Alterscape (+1)

When you get there tell them you're with the MeraFilter group and they'll check you in. I should have thought to ask earlier, but if we need any special accommodations they're ready to help.

If you still want to come you can call them and add yourself to the MeFi RSVP, but if you just drop by you probably won't get a seat. (It sounds like weekends are all filled up with RSVPs in general these days.)

Sorry I missed your message yesterday. I'm coming and will call them to add myself (and chicainthecity if she can make it).

I have to work and I'm very sad about it.
posted by Uncle at 1:24 PM on February 8, 2017

Hey Uncle, are you interested in organizing the next board game event for us? That way you'll be sure to make it.

Thanks so much for organizing, Room 641-A. Looking forward to it!
posted by Alterscape at 9:20 PM on February 8, 2017

I was going to change maybe to yes, but you already have a reservation. If someone flakes, post it here & I'll take their place.
posted by betweenthebars at 9:15 PM on February 10, 2017

I won't be able to make it tomorrow, but I'll keep my eyes peeled for the next one!

betweenthebar, call and see if they can add one more.

Bit of traffic but I'm on the way! See everyone soon!
posted by Goblin Barbarian at 1:29 PM on February 11, 2017

I'm also on my way!
posted by Room 641-A at 2:25 PM on February 11, 2017

What name are we reserved under? They need me to confirm that info at the cashier.
posted by Goblin Barbarian at 2:37 PM on February 11, 2017

The bus was late so I will probably be 15 mins-ish late.
posted by Room 641-A at 2:41 PM on February 11, 2017

We (chica and Celsius) are running late but should be there around 3:30, with the emphasis on around.
posted by chicainthecity at 2:57 PM on February 11, 2017

We are now 4! C'mon down, folks!
posted by Alterscape at 3:13 PM on February 11, 2017

That was tons of fun! Looking forward to the next excursion!
posted by Celsius1414 at 8:17 AM on February 12, 2017

I had a great time, as always! I think Game Haus is my happy place.
