I'm trying to start up some boardgaming where I work (the Sentry Box games store in Calgary) and everyone is invited to come down.

It will be taking place on Sundays from 11am - 5.30pm every two weeks, with the next session being August 9th.

I'm also starting a Thursday night after hours session which will be weekly from 6.30pm - 11pm or so. This will start on Thursday August 20th. The store closes at 6pm so anyone arriving after that time will need to come to the back entrance. I will make periodic trips downstairs if people want to buy something specific.

Both days are free for everyone to come along. We have a collection of demo games here at the store and I will bring a selection too.

On Sundays there will be a $10 gift certificate door prize and hopefully I can rustle up the odd other prize from time to time.

It's advertised on the meetup website here:

Our facebook group is here:

Our BGG Guild is here:

And the store website is here:

www.sentrybox.com

Please feel free to come down or contact me if you have any questions:

email: ops@sentrybox.com
phone: 403-245-2121

I'd be be so down for this if I was back home in Canuckistan!

Didn't you guys have something going on like this ages ago? "Sentry Box" was always one of the shops I recall being on Canadian gamers "go-to" lists...

As far as I know there have been lots of gaming groups over the years but there doesn't seem to be one meeting very regularly at Sentry Box these days so I figured I'd try to start a group. The more gaming the better as far as I'm concerned!

I've changed the Facebook page to a fan page now instead of a group. The link is here: http://www.facebook.com/sentrybox

By the way, the Sunday open gaming never really got off the ground but the Thursdays are still going strong (it's every Thursday except the first Thursday each month because we have a writers group that meets on that night).

Oh and we now have open gaming every Tuesday night as well (from 6.30pm).
