I’ve been thinking of starting a new gaming group in Vaughan.

Anyone interested? I need to update my collection list on BGG, but I enjoy/own a wide variety of games.

Times/Locations can be discussed if this thread picks up any traction.

Thanks!

Hi Angelo, there is a weekly gaming group at the 401 Games in Vaughan. If there isn't enough response here in the Ontario forum, perhaps meeting people there will allow you to form a new group as well:

Unfortunately, the Meetups seem to be on Thursdays. One of the days that doesn’t work for me.

Thanks for the link though!

No problem. This the matching BGG guild for other GTA players: https://boardgamegeek.com/guild/2563

Hi Angelo, I'm nearby, in Woodbridge. I like the idea of a game group in our neck of the woods, however currently I cannot commit to weekly (or even bi-weekly) meetups because I'm taking part-time classes in the evenings. I only get in some gaming here-and-there. Having a 2 year old kid cuts down on my time even further.

However, I'd like to be able to sporadically drop by if that's allowed! I see you have a few war-gamey titles in your collection.

I’m in a similar situation as Mark, no classes but two young 4 and 5 year olds. I’m in the middle of a move however and then a trip so I should probably wait till after March break before I commit to anything. I will monitor the board with interest.

Thanks for the responses!

I’m in a similar situation. 3 kids with activities. That’s why I figured I would attempt setting something up locally.

What days would work for you?

I’m not hung up on making this a strict schedule. I figure to pick a day and see if it works out.

Ok, let me figure that out because Tuesdays are definitely out. If it were a weekday I’d hazard Wednesday. Once I move to the new house and we settle in the schedule should become clear.

For me, Fridays, sporadically.

I used to play games with Francisco here-and-there on Wednesdays, but I have class this term on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Okay, I may as well throw this up here too... I live near the airport and I'm free sporatically most week nights from about 4 until about 9pm and some weekends depending (varying times). If someone finds themselves free, shoot me a message and perhaps we can work something out.

I'll chime in too!

I am in a similar situation, with a few kids that make it hard to get out, especially since my wife works evenings a few week nights. I like to spend the day with the kids on Saturday and Sunday, but most of the stores do not stay open late on the weekends. This makes it hard to find time to game.

I'm not technically in Vaughan, but am at the very northern edge of Toronto, off Bathurst.

If anyone ever plans a Sunday afternoon event where kids are welcome (they can play with each other while adults game) I would be interested, or an evening event for one or maybe two games, at 7:30 or later.

Also, if anyone ever has an open Wed. or Thurs. night where they don't need to be home while the kids sleep, feel free to message me about getting a game in if you are okay with me hosting (since I need to be home while the kids sleep), as long as I don't have other constraints.

John

Right now, Wednesdays and Fridays are better for me. It might be difficult in the second half of March, but I should be in the clear after that.

With that in mind, next Wednesday (28th), next Friday (March 2nd) or Wednesday, March 14th would be possible days in the near term.

Any preference?

Based on the responses, we can settle on a location that works best for everyone.

It sounds like we should have started this 5-6 years ago, everyone has kids

Situational Update: my move is complete, games are out of storage, upcoming trip on March Break however.

I’ll take these dates and consult my better half. Meanwhile let’s see if Mark chimes in.

As for locations, I was thinking whatever would work best for everyone.

401 Games or Legends Warehouse are pretty central within the city. I’m still looking for other potential locales. However, I am open to any suggestions.

Ok. Legends it is.

Preferred time? I was thinking 6:30/7 for any of the dates I mentioned.

Based on how many people can show up, we can figure out what games we should bring/suggest.
