There will be a meeting of the Kanata Board Gamers this Thursday, 8 May 2014. The start time for the session is 6 PM till approximately 11pm.
The place is: Kanata Community Christian Reformed Church
Detailed directions follow, but it is quite close to the Hazeldean Public Library.
Also, send me a geekmail if you want to let me know about anything - from suggestions for raising club attendance, club purchase suggestions, or just telling me whether you can make the meeting.
Feel free to use this forum thread to discuss what to play!
You may bring food & drink (be neat!). We can rearrange the tables & chairs provided we return everything an keep things tidy.
Our meetings are posted on meetup; check out http://meetup.gamesforall.ca/
Kanata Community Christian Reformed Church (KCCRC) is 46 Castlefrank Rd (directions follow). There is parking outside. Go straight through the front doors and you can't miss us!
$2.50 will be collected from each person. The first $30 collected is donated to our gracious venue. Any left over will go into a boardgame library fund. The war chest stands at $641.02. Check out the library (BGG user: KanataBoardGamers). Members can borrow from the library any time. Borrow it one session, bring it back for the next!
Visitors are always welcome. Come on in and check us out! There is no obligation, but if you decide to become a member it only costs $7.50 and entitles you to 10% discount cards at select local games stores.
Note if you want the discount cards (for Fandom II, Mrs. Tiggy Winkles, and Comic Book Shoppe), let me know & I'll have them made up. 100% of the $7.50 fee goes to Can Games 2014 to support kids games and the cards are good for 1 calendar year from the month you get them. You have donated $52.50 so far.
Please add to this thread with your suggestions of what to play.
Hope to see you then!

I can bring my newly acquired copy of Rogue Agent if people are interested in trying it out
I'll be bringing Steam Over Holland which I'm running at Cangames. I need practice teaching it. It can be played two-player.
I am back in Ottawa for a few weeks and I will be there.
As a Dutch National (and Canadian) I would like learn Steam over Holland.
Everything is already packed for my move to NS, so I can't take anything with me.

I could really use some volunteers for CanGames to help out with open gaming on Saturday 17 May from noon till about 8. So 2 people from noon to 4 and two more from 4 to 8 would be ideal.
Please geekmail me if you are interested.
