Gainesville Gamers is back with our all day gaming event this month, Saturday January 19th. 11am-11pmish...midnight maybe later? Basically when people feel like going home!

We hold this at Reitz Union on campus at University of Fl. Feel free to contact me via geekmail for detailed directions from where ever you are.

Board, card and RPG's get played at our gatherings. We play a slew of board games from Euro's to AT's to Party games. We've got a decent group of MtG players and I saw Paranoia being run last Wed. night.(Yes in addition to our monthly all day event we play every Wed. night same location starting at 6pm again until people feel like leaving.) I would say however that our group is diverse and pretty open to trying anything new people bring and want to put on the tables so don't be shy.

Hope to see of new faces.

Neil

I can't make it, but I've got alot of wonderful memories gaming in the union. Heck, I ran a role playing club and two conventions out of the Union in the early 90s.

Go Gators!

It's a shame you picked the day that the Jaguars are playing the Patriots in the playoffs...

Neil has generously offered a spot at this Saturday's event for a playtest of my Empires in the New World exploration game:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/1954045#1954045

We can handle up to four players and since the game only takes about 90 minutes to finish more than one session could be possible.

I'm looking forward to meeting the members of the Gainesville group!

If you have any questions or comments about this game, please post a message within the session report that I've linked to here:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/1954045#1954045

I'll respond ASAP.

Thanks!

Pete

Pete,

Were you at Recon this past Spring?

I was tied up in some other games, but you gave me a brief over view of the game. Seemed like it could be cool.

(Although I'm not going to make it Saturday).

Mike:

Yes, this game was playtested at RECON in May 2007.

We had lots of fun with it then, and it plays even faster now.

If Neil says "OK" I may try to playtest Empires in the New World in Gainesville next month, too.
