Sun January 22 at 2:00 PM, Blue Shirt Cafe
424 Highland Ave, Somerville, MA, USA (Map & Directions)
The last time we met to play board games went well. Let's ring in the new year with a session at the Blue Shirt Cafe on Sunday, January 22nd, from 2:00 to whenever we want to leave. People can bring their own games of whatever genre and difficulty they like. If people would prefer to meet at a different time or date, I'm sure we can work something out.
I'd like to bring Citadels and Condottiere, the latter of which people liked last time, as well as Cosmic Encounter and Chinatown. If you really want to play a particular game, but don't have it, just say so: There's a strong chance that someone interested in a board-game meetup could have it. If you can't make it this time, I'd like to do this every other week or at least every month, so don't worry too much. Hope to see you there!

I'd like to come! I just moved to Cambridge from DC and know exactly 0 people outside of work. My board games got donated before I moved, but I'm game (pun intended) to play whatever others bring.

I am likely to attend, but I'm going to wait until after Mystery Hunt to commit to anything at this point because AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH HUNT IS NEXT WEEK?!

I was out of town for the last one, but I'm pretty sure I can attend this time!

This (currently) sounds like the Camberville Games That Start With C meetup.

I need to talk to people this weekend about possible plans for that weekend, but I'm down as "maybe" right now.

I'm glad to see so much interest! If you can't come without a change of date or time, don't hesitate to say so.

This (currently) sounds like the Camberville Games That Start With C meetup.

If it comes to that, I could bring El Grande or Tammany Hall to break the monotony.

Or even more games that start with C could be found!

As it turns out, I will in fact be doing something else that weekend. But if the date changes or this becomes a regular thing, I will one day be able to attend.

Hoping to make it to this! I can bring Catan, the most obvious c game

Just had to book some last minute work travel, so it looks like I won't be around this weekend. I'll make it to the next one!

I and my +1 are in! We have secured baby sitting. This is not a drill.

Quick question: if the country is under martial law by then, does it still go down?

Board games will definitely be on even if the God-Emperor declares the constitution null and void. Cosmic Encounter will be banned, though, so we'll need to play that one quietly.

Just a reminder that this will be this Sunday! If you can't make it, that's fine: I plan to set up another meeting for Sunday the 5th of February. Sorry we'll miss you this time, backseatpilot.

Today's the day. Hope to see you all there! Feel free to arrive late. I'll leave a message here when we disperse.

See you there! I'll extend the run of C's with Carcassonne... though I think I'd need a refresher how to play!

I've arrived. I'm the guy in the black sweater sitting by a stack of board games.

And we're done. Thanks to all who came. You made it a fine afternoon. Two of my friends from off the site came as well. We played Cosmic Encounter, Fluxx, and Carcassonne. Tomorrow I'll arrange the next meetup for the same time and place two weeks from now, on February 5th.

That was so fun thanks for arranging that RE!

Seconded! Looking forward to the next one.
