Okay, let's start the meeting. My name is Ken, and I'm a Tichu addict.
The Cleveland Boardgames Meetup Group would like to invite Board Game Geek members to join us for any of our events.
Please note that the events fall very early this month. The dates for the March events are the 1st, 7th, 16th and the 22nd.
March should be a good month for the Cleveland Boardgames Meetup Group as we now have over 100 members.
Detail for all of the March's events are listed below.
Please RSVP on the web site, it encourages others to attend.
Please feel free to forward this to other gamers.
March Meetup #1 - East Side – Arabica.
Our venue on the East Side, the Arabica Coffeehouse at University Circle, offers a (mostly) quiet, smoke-free environment that is open until midnight - that's five hours of possible gaming! *Smoking areas are available in the upstairs rooms.*
Your support of events on this side of town is important. If the attendance at this East Side venue shows growth, a second monthly event will be scheduled for this side of town. Preliminary work, such as a search for another suitable East Side venue, is currently underway; if you know of a place that would work well for an event, please pass that information on to your organizer.
Wednesday, March 1, 2006, 7:00 PM until Midnight
Arabica at Univ Cir
11300 Juniper Rd
Cleveland , OH 44106
This is an event that is in the "neighborhood" of the local on-line retailer, Hobbies and Games. You can order games from the owner, Ron Charity, and pick up your games on the way to the Arabica event. That way, you can show off your brand new games and we'll help you play 'um. You also pay 'on-line' prices for the games and save on the shipping costs. To order from Ron, call him at 216-381-5009 after 6 pm weekdays and anytime on the weekends. You can see what is available and in stock on the website. Using the link below gives our meetup group some bonus points.
March Meetup #2 - West Side - Warzone Matrix.
Our venue, The Warzone Matrix game store, is on the West Side and offers a gamer-friendly, smoke-free environment that is open until midnight - that's five hours of possible gaming!
Chris, our host and the Warzones owner, has been busy creating a new gaming space. Warzone Matrix has busted through the wall and incorporated the neighboring storefront into its domain. The new gaming area is large and evenly heated.
Tuesday, March 7, 2006, 7:00 PM until Midnight
This is United Boardgames Meetup Day
The Warzone Matrix
4704 Rocky River Drive
Cleveland , OH 44135
The Warzone Matrix also offers an open boardgaming event on the first and third Saturday of every month; Noon until ?
March Meetup #3 - West Side - I'm Game
The selection of games that this store has on the shelves is constantly growing with new offerings every week. The ‘kid friendly’ store and the earlier starting time, 5:00 p.m., makes this an event that is good for a family outing so, bring the whole gang with you.
It is always good to have more game shops that are willing to allow open gaming in town. This shop is in the Great Northern mall and that limits the flexibility the owners have in setting the hours we are allowed to game; that's the reason for the earlier starting time. The mall closes at 9 p.m. but we will be able to game until nearly 10 p.m. Stop by and play a game; you'll have fun.
Thursday, March 16, 2006, 5:00 PM until 9:45 PM
156 Great Northern Mall
North Olmsted , Oh 44070
The venue for this meetup in INSIDE the Great Northern Mall. It is located next to Dick's Sporting Goods.
March Meetup #4 - West Side - Gamers Haven
We'll be meeting on the West Side at the Gamers Haven game store. It offers a gamer-friendly, smoke-free environment that is open until midnight - that's five hours of possible gaming!
This event has become quite popular and often draws twenty or more players. With so many people and the wide range of games being played, this is very welcoming event for newer members. Come and play fun games with fun people!
