Hey all,

For those in or around Montreal, just a note that there is a gaming group at Concordia University that plays every Saturday at 1pm on the seventh floor of the Hall Building (1455 de Maisonneuve West near the Guy-Concordia metro, the cross street is MacKay). We play all types of games, long or short, Euro or Ameritrash.

Feel free to pass by and check out our group page:

Until what time do guys stay? I have a study group on Saturday. I figured since I'll be at Concordia on a Saturday anyway, I might as well pop by and see what the group is all about. I don't know if I would actually have time to play since I do have to study.
Oh, and are there any women in the group? I would feel awfully uncomfortable walking into room full of men. laugh

Hello Ani,

Play time really varies, we play till between 6pm and 1am. It really depends who is there so feel free to pass by and see if anyone is still around depending on what time your study group ends. We play on the 7th floor of the hall building, near the Peoples Potato.
As for women, yes there are women in the group, but maybe not at every meeting. We are mostly men, but I would say about 15% are women but some meetings there are only men. Week to week there are different people, usually the yahoo group posts can help you determine who will be there, but then again, many people do not post and just show up when they can.

Interesting, especially since it is near a metro station which is easily accessible.

How does it work?
You simply pop up and join a table for a game?
Who provides the board games? If it's a whoever has any, I have a few I could bring haha if I pass by

Hello Yvan,

Indeed it is very accessible, you don't even need to go outside in the winter as the Guy metro is connected to the building underground. We start at 1pm, best to arrive at 1pm to ensure you don't have to wait for other games to finish, but you can come any time. We play till between 6pm and 11pm. You are free to bring any games you want to play or just join in on what others brought which includes all types of games (you can see the detail of games we play i the database section of the Yahoo groups site).

Hope to see you there.
Michel
