I will be hosting a Games Day in my home on Sunday, June 14th, from 3 PM until the last person leaves (which will likely be at least midnight). Games on hand include Tichu, Poker, Ticket to Ride, Blokus, Pegs and Jokers, Scrabble, Boggle, etc. People are welcome to bring their own games as well. We tend to split up into groups if there are enough people. Current expected attendee count is 6-8 but I would love a few more and I'd love to meet one or more Mefites in person. [more inside]
HI friends! I'm teaching an Intro to Poker Class at the very adorable skill share place QED in Astoria next week. The class is $20 which gets you 1 unforgettable hour of extremely useful and fun instruction on both how to play better poker (with a side order of basic statistics) and how to not look like a rube while playing, plus an entry into a free tournament to commence right after the class, at which you could win a fabulous prize (probably a poker book, I don't actually know). Here is a link to the venue. Please ignore the part that says I am a professional player. I was just bluffing when I wrote that. Ha ha. Anyway if you want $5 off the price let me know and I'll send you a discount code. Or just show up and let me know you're from metafilter and I'll buy you a beer.
Anyone in or near Toronto wanna play some NLHE? Something like $1/$2 or $1/$0.50 or even $1/$1? I can host at my place, and I have the cards and chips, just not the poker playing friends since I left the Philadelphia/AC area.
