Hello,

I am attending a convention (ACM Siggraph) at the convention center in downtown New Orleans August 1-August 7. Are there any games clubs or groups around that day or meet nearby during the week? I will probably have a car Saturday but not during the rest of the week.

Is there anyone else attending Siggraph who would be interested in playing some games at night? I could bring a few.

-Eric

I'll be attending Siggraph too and I do like board games, although they are hard to find in Brazil (that is, except for localized versions of Monopoly, Risk, Clue and a few others). As for playing games, I'm planning on using (at least part of) the free time I get to know the city... but who knows.

I'll be there and would be up for some games (jet-lag permitting).

I am from New Orleans and do wargaming. If you are interested in that, feel free to follow me on Twitter .... wwiigamer.... and I will retweet about your request to find gamers in town.

I brought Power Grid (Benelux/Central Europe and China/Korea) and Ticket to Ride (USA/1910). I'd be open to meeting Thursday and/or Friday evenings.

Thanks for the kind offer! I am not particularly interested in wargames though.

I'm from New Orleans. I'll be attending siggraph Thursday. My group meets on Saturday nights. If you are still in town, you are welcome to join us. You seem to like the same games we do. Acquire is still my favorite game.

If you happen to see me at the convention, please feel free to approach me. I have long curly brown hair and a long beard.

One week too late! I was here last Saturday night with nothing to do, but I'll be flying out Saturday morning. Thanks for the invitation! I love Acquire, and I understand the strategy much better having played it a lot online (www.gametableonline.com).
