There seems to be a growing number of Geeks in Lethbridge so - even though several of us crash the Calgary thread from time to time - I thought it would be handy to have our own thread. I moved to Lethbridge a couple of years ago (which makes me a bit of a newcomer) and I mostly play with either my family, with apotheos' group or online at SBW. I like a wide variety of games - light to heavy, abstract to themed, party to number-crunching. In fact, it's pretty hard to find a game I won't play (as evidenced by my ratings).

So, feel free to introduce yourselves and we'll see just how many folks we've got around here!

Game group needed...

I moved to Lethbridge a year and a half ago. I remembered a "Canadian Gamer" thread With Eddy the Funky Monkey bemoaning his lonesome fate in Lethbridge. I looked him up and we got together.

I'd like to get together more often but our schedules rarely seem to coincide...

I like many kinds of games. At least, I like to BUY many kinds of games. Hopefully I will get a chance to play some of them.

In any case, here's to some Lethbridge gaming! thumbsup

I'm a Lethbridge gamer, too, and finally got to meet Susan today, thanks to her hospitality! There are five registered Lethbridge geeks that I know of. Are there more?

We had a fun session today, although there was a conspicuous absence of a floating brain in a jar. Heres hoping we can continue to find time to game.

I'm glad everyone had a good time. If any other Lethbridge-ites are looking to meet some fellow Geeks, send me a PM. It'd be nice if we could meet up on a semi-regular basis; I'm guessing monthly-ish probably works best given everyone's busy schedules. I'm happy to host as long as nobody's too allergic to my little furballs (who shocked me by actually staying off the table all afternoon - normally, they like to "play too").

My wife and I are also moderately new to Lethbridge, now with a young child. We're always keen to try and play games though my schedule often makes that difficult. I'd like to speak for both of us, but me being at work right at this moment means that I'm only speaking for me. However, I *think* we'd be keen on getting together with the other Lethbridge gamers.

Keep us posted. And I'll have to check this site more often than I currently do.

Jared, did Rachel by any chance work in a chem lab at the University? If so, I think I've met her.

I don't know what everyone's availability is like for December. My only free Saturday is the one coming up (Dec. 9th) - I have finals and/or family visits the rest of the month. So, if anyone's free on the 9th, let me know. Otherwise, we can try in January when schedules have lightened up a bit.

Only one Rachel Van Bussel in Canada that I know about. Our name is not all that common. She had mentioned that she met you when I found your name here. I think you may have also met my sister, taking a first-year chem.

This coming weekend is not likely good for me, but maybe Rachel (if you don't mind a baby). Midweek is also sometimes an option. January may also work.

I could be up for something this weekend. After that my daughter will be visiting until the 6th of January and it would be hard (but not impossible) for me to get away.

I don't mind a baby as long as the baby doesn't mind that I have cats. (I know some babies are sensitive to cat fur.)

I'll send out an email tomorrow with details. Jared, can you either email me (susan.lait@uleth.ca) or PM me so that I can get yours and Rachel's email address? I expect my sister will join us again, so that gives us one more person.

Edited to add: We could also consider a weeknight if that works better for people. I tend to teach a lot of evening classes which can make that more difficult for me. Next week, Wed/Thurs is out for me - and I expect my sister is out anytime this month after this weekend because she's got finals.

I've since left the city for greener pastures, but I bet Susan L (above) is still around. I can attest that she is pretty fun to game with. Try messaging her via Geekmail.

Well, just to keep the thread going I'll add on that my wife and I are looking for other gamers around too, Our 2 year old kind of limits our availability but you can message me on here if we're missing out on anything big

Of course, FallCon will be coming up first... (also in Calgary; just Google FallCon and you should find the website; it's in September)

We live in Regina, but my wife and I normally make it to Lethbridge once or twice a year to visit my brother and his family. We also, usually make an annual pilgrimmage to Waterton Park.

Are there any regularly scheduled game nights that we could pop in, say hi, and play a game?

What game stores do you recommend checking out while in Lethbridge? My wife and I will be there during the long weekend in May visiting family.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry for the late response. I've been out of town.

I don't know that I'd really recommend any of our games stores, sadly. Showcase Comics has decent prices but is primarily a comic book store so does not have much selection. It's on 3rd Ave S between 12th and 13th Streets. Games Galore has a bit more selection but generally pretty outrageous prices. It's in Park Place Mall on 1st Ave S; inside the mall, it's a couple of stores from the Sears.

I moved to Lethbridge with my wife and daughter a couple years ago. I moved here for a new job, and wound up starting my own small business and buying a house a little over a year ago. I'm an all-round gaming geek, into board games, card games, role-playing games, computer and console games ... you get the idea. I'd be interested in the occasional gaming get-together.

Hi there,

Do any of you know where to buy Axis & Allies: Control the Fate of the World in Lethbridge? This game has also been called Axis & Allies Revised. It's not at Games Galore.

Hey, I'm a gamer. I live in Lethbridge.

Is this a dead thread or is anybody still out there?

Last reply to here was 2 years ago, but someone linked me here from another forum. I have a group mostly made up from friends from work that tries to get together once a week to play games, currently we're running a Risk:Legacy game, and we've been playing other stuff like Dominion, Sentinels, and BSG when we could get the people.

We don't drink when we play, but we do like to joke around but no crazy internet meme's 24/7. We're all in our 20's (mid to late) If you're interested in joining and want some more info. Send me a PM or reply here.
