8th Annual Pre-Pre-Con Monday Night Beer, Games, and Chili with the Carrollton Area Boardgamers.

The Carrollton Area Boardgames Club will hold their Eighth annual Pre-Pre-Con Monday night gaming session for the true early birds who arrive on or before Nov 14th. One featured game, and whatever else we end up getting into. The location has changed this year and we'll be in Carrollton proper this time. We'll find a way to get you there if you lack transport. So if you're checking in early, join us for some beer, wine, games, lots of chili, and sometimes Canadians and Swedes.

In the past we have played Union Pacific, Formula D, Cosmic Encounter, Sentinels of the Multiverse, Shadow Hunters,7 Wonders, and Tajemnicze Domostwo

This year we will play RoboRally



We will start around 6:00pm in the evening on Monday 11/14.

A variety of chili will be on the stove and beer in the fridge, probably some other refreshments as well. Team Geek is always welcome after a day of toting and lifting the Library into place. We have plenty of food, and even more fun ready to roll.

It's our way of welcoming you to town. Post to the thread if you are interested, and we will send you directions or arrange some transport.

Locals also welcome!

We'd like to go this year. And, we live close to the airport, so it wouldn't be a problem to give a couple of people a ride.

Maybe in a couple of years. I am busy organizing some smaller local gatherings and that occupies my gaming convention time and budget.

Have fun this year!!!!

We attended this last year for the first time.

For anyone on the fence about this, or shy like me.

GO!

They are a Great Group of people. Warm and friendly. We had a Great time last year.

If we didn't have a commitment already for this year, we'd do it again in a heartbeat.

HAVE FUN GUYS!!

I'll be there. If I could get picked up at the hotel or the airport terminal, that would be great. My flight theoretically should get to DFW at 5:17pm.

That went better than expected.

30 boardgamers joined us this year! We pushed the limits of our venue but hopefully everyone was pretty comfortable and had a good time and had some tasty chili.

Robo Rally did get played, and lots of other games too. Sticheln, Ra, Through the Ages, Istanbul, Power Grid and more!

Thanks to the cooks for making chili and other treats. Thanks to Sean for providing a place to hold our event this year and even buying some extra tables and chairs when it became obvious we would need them.

Thanks to everyone who came out and had a good time and some laughs with us. See you at the con, and hopefully at the next Beer, Games and Chili!

Bryan Cooper (bcooperok) came up with those gamer hobo signs. I think you can find them in his gallery.

Epic, is there a place where they all reside? I must learn and put this knowledge to good use!
