Sun June 11 at 2:00 PM, Blue Shirt Cafe
424 Highland Ave, Somerville, MA, USA (Map & Directions)
Board games. Blue Shirt Cafe in Davis Square. Sunday the 28th Sunday, June 11th at 2:00 PM. You know the drill, and if you don't know it, we'll be happy to teach it to you. Bring any games you'd like to play, and don't worry too much about winning or losing.
As always, I expect to bring Cosmic Encounter, El Grande, and a few decks of cards. I think I'll also bring Acquire, a great older game that's like a cross between Monopoly and Scrabble. Cosmic Encounter is really pretty simple, but I explained it badly the first time I brought it. Fortunately, the board-gaming site Shut Up and Sit Down has produced a video of play which helps explain how the game works. Tom Vasel's review of the game sells it pretty well, too.

If you would prefer a different venue, date, or time, don't hesitate to say so, and please request any games you'd like to play.

I forgot that this weekend was Memorial Day weekend, so with only one "attending" and two "maybes" I'm inclined to postpone this one for a week or two. What do people think?

I'd say there's about a 50% chance I can make it Sunday. I'll be more readily available in a week or two so my vote is for postponing.

All right, sounds good. I'll postpone this for two weeks, until June 11th.

All right, this is tomorrow! Hope to see you folks there!

Oh whoops, it is next week. False alarm! See you folks next week.

Now it is tomorrow. Hope to see you all there. I still think I'll bring El Grande, Acquire, Cosmic, and a few decks of cards, as I wrote in the post.

Just arrived. I'll hang out in the dining room for a bit.

We're enjoying the sound effects from over behind the counter. :)
