Interesting. A friend of mine pointed me to this thread/event. My wife and I are avid gamers (board, minis, rpg, selected ccg's). We moved to Holliston about 2 years ago.

We'll likely drop by and check this out.

I'm interested in old school Avalon Hill and SPI, hex and counter stuff. Are these types of games typically present?

Anyone is welcome to play anything, but knowing some of the people who attend, they probably wouldn't be interested.

That being said, if you know a group who likes those sort of games, they are all welcome.

Rachel and Sharon would most likely play those games. Rachel and I played Dune at the last quarterly.

I am sure that you will be able to find at least a couple of people to play those games with. And there should be plenty of people that would entertain learning how to play them.

Dune's a good game. I suppose I can just bring something and see if anything pops. I find Euro games and what not too simple typically. I generally like to keep things like dice and cards to a minimum to avoid the luck element. Hard to eliminate entirely obviously.

TAS-CON is actually a new annual mini-con that I'm running. The Meetup Group "MetroWest Board Gaming" is a co-sponsor. Many of the members will be at TAS-CON.

The last month event was the MetroWest Board Gaming Quarterly All-Day Meetup.

This sounds like a fun event -- and the more regular gatherings as well. I'd be interested in participating if I can find time in the schedule, especially if the location is more towards 'metro' than 'west'.

Holliston occupies one of those strange locations that is equidistant from every highway. It feels like a nice small town to get away from Boston, but I can also drive from Holliston to Brookline in 35 min or so.

We'd love to have any and all gamers from Boston!

Thanks to Tas and Maram for an awesome day! And thanks to Randy for running the X-wing tournament.

I got both Terra Mystica and Kemet to the table, so my day rocked.

Hope we can do it again!
