Brighton Boardgame Evening
posted January 8, 2017 2:54 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Tue February 7 at 6:00 PM, Alcampo Lounge
86 London Rd, Brighton BN1 4JF, UK (Map & Directions)
An evening of post-work boardgames, chat, and drinks.
Date: 7th Feb is the preliminary date, but can reschedule if it means more people can make it. I can't do Thursdays, and Fridays are probably too busy so it's likely to be Mon-Weds.

Time: 6pm again if that's OK - but just turn up whenever you can if you can't make it that early.

Venue: Alcampo's seemed to work well last time, especially since we nabbed the sofas. Not too noisy or crowded, and decent food and drink.

Games: Generally fairly light-weight cardgames. Last time we played Love Letter and Funemployed. I also got Coup for Christmas (like a slightly more complex Love Letter). Of course everyone is welcome to bring anything else they want to play.

Yay! Putting myself down as a maybe, but am intending to come if health permits. Busy for the next two weeks, but pretty much completely free after that. (So I truly have no date preference etc. I'm sure other people have more limiting commitments ;)

Totally up for this, of course! :)

I'm completely open right now, though I have a preference for avoiding Friday simply so it will be quieter.

Yeah that's a good point, and I assume people will be more likely to have other plans on Fridays anyway.

Shall we say a preliminary date of Tuesday the 31st Jan?

Fine by me.

Curses, I just booked something on the 31st before I saw this. I will keep a beady eye out for future/any date changes.

We could push it back a week to the 7th Feb? How does that suit everyone?

I could do the 7th. :D

7th fine! (I got an email for this! I'm pretty sure I DIDNT get one for 31st. Oh, tho I was probably still set to "maybe" then.)

I forgot to check the "notify attendees" option the first time :)

I can bring exploding kittens. (Also possibly my non-mefi husband)

Awesome, bring both!

I just ordered the premium version of Love Letter (a 2-year-old got hold of my existing copy) which means we can have more than 4 players.

See you all this evening! Whoever gets there first, try and grab the sofas.

See you there!

Apologies, all. I am coming down with something and would like to not be the start of The Great Brighton Metafilter Plague.

Also, I have a really annoying dry cough and you may all want to strangle me if you have to listen to it for the duration.

Ah, sorry to hear that. Hope you feel better, and see you next time!
