Hi all, I'll be in Toronto on a short stopover. I'll be staying downtown. I gather meeplemart is close to my hotel, as is 401 games and snakes and lagers.
I was wondering if there is an active X-Wing or A:NR community and if people are planning to play on Tuesday night. I would love to get a game or two in.
Looking forward to my visit and the chance to meet new people!

-Alex

Hi Alex!

Welcome to our fair(ish) city! Unfortunately, Tuesday isn't really a "hot" day for Netrunner, generally speaking. There is a weekly meetup at Friendly Troll, but it is in North Toronto (on Yonge Street but pretty far up), and I've never been so I don't know how many people actually show up to it. The more popular meetups are Wednesday nights at Meeplemart and Thursday nights at 401 Games.

The general calendar for Netrunner is:
Monday: OCTGN Night, Scallywags (Biweekly, Midtown, 6PM)
Tuesday: Friendly Trolls (Unofficial, 6PM)
Wednesday: 401 Games (Unofficial, 6PM), Meeplemart (5PM)
Thursday: 401 Games (6PM), Friendly Trolls (6PM), Legends (6PM)
Friday: OISE (Room 3311, Late afternoon - 10PM)
Saturday: 401 Games (4PM)
Sunday: Ryerson University (Unofficial, 12PM)

You might find some games at Snakes & Lattes, but I would not recommend Snakes & Lagers at all. Basically, their game selection is minimal, and is basically a place for drunk people to play Cards Against Humanity loudly. I'm not really a fan.

I can post in our local Facebook group and see if anyone is planning any games more downtown-ish, and let you know!

Hi Alex,

Tuesday might not be a great day to find Netrunner players, but you should definitely check out Meeplemart since Tuesday is their weekly boardgame event and the turnout is always great!

There is discussion of Memoir '44, Goa and Olympos for the 22nd but most games are not arranged in advance so you should just go and jump into a game. Official start is 5pm, but most people head down after work arriving between 5:30 and 6pm.

Thanks for the advice! Guess I'll be leaving my decks and squads at home, then. Which leaves more space in my luggage for anything I decide to buy at meeplemart devil
