Following an unsuccessful search for an existing forum, I've decided we're well past due in recognizing the gamers from in and around the city of Syracuse NY, while giving them a place on BGG to call home.

Let's be honest - if there is anything Syracuse is known for, it would be the University (Go Orangemen!) and the snow, the latter of which we get in abundance (an average of 115" annually, to be precise). Speaking of which, winter is coming. The time of year when the sun disappears for 6 months, the roads are covered with ice and snow, and the only time one ventures outside is to catch an Orange basketball game or shovel the driveway. In other words, perfect gaming weather.

The intent of this forum is simple - to provide gamers from around the Syracuse area to discuss local events, organize gatherings, or just chat about games. I've dropped a few links under "resources" below to highlight a few local areas of interest, but will leave it to the community to update this forum as they see fit.

That is all - have fun!

(Full disclosure, I not only live in the Syracuse area, but I'm also an SU grad, so I might possibly be somewhat biased towards the university. Just saying.)

Resources


Play the Game Read the Story (http://playthegamereadthestory.com/): Your friendly local game store with two locations. One in Destiny USA, and a flagship store at 689 N. Clinton St. Well stocked of the more popular games, and an excellent selection of comics / graphic novels. Check their event calendar, as there's always something going on.

Carrier Dome Box Office (http://www.carrierdome.com/tickets/): Need tickets for an Orange Football / Basketball / Lacrosse game in the Dome? Look no further.

Armory Square Directory (http://www.armorysquareofsyracuse.com/): The historic Armory Square district, home to numerous shops, restaurants and bars. I personally recommend Empire Brewery and Pastabilities, among many, many others.

Dinosaur BBQ (http://www.dinosaurbarbque.com/): Often considered among the best BBQ in America, despite the handicap of not being located in the South or St. Louis. Either way, worth the price of admission. Just be willing to wait for a seat at peak times.
