So is there a meeting this month? I would love to meet some new gamers and play some newer games to me.

D'Oh! I can't make this weekend. I guess I'll have to wait another month.

Apparently my timing on finally joining BGG is quite excellent as I live in Ann Arbor.

Do you mind a new face strolling in late, around 6pm? I'm booked until 5-30pm.

I might also be accompanied by my wife, thus possibly two new faces.

This Sat eh?

I'd like to make an appearance. We (my wife and I) are in baby-prep mode at home so various domestic projects may take precedence, but we'll see!

Incidentially, is anyone interested in playtesting a game I'm developing (Shifters)? It's about 98% complete barring any minor tweakes/etc... before going to the printer. If not, no big deal either.

Cheers!

Big bummer. I was really looking forward to making a showing today, but my wife got into a car accident last night (She is fine.), and it just threw everything out of whack. With any luck I'll be able to catch the next one of these meets. cry

This looks great! I noticed the calendar at gocoho and it shows Feb 26th as the next game day. How many people are usually there? Will there be people looking for new players?

That's the next game day. Usually get around 25 people or so. You'll definitely find games to jump into.

You should also go to www.meetup.com and look up the Board Game League of Canton (BLOC). That is this Saturday from noon until about 5:30 at the Canton Public Library. Then afterwards a group usually goes to Bailey's that is right around the corner to eat and play more games.

I went for the first time last month and the people here are very friendly. The estimate of 20 - 30 seems correct to me but I didn't stay the whole time. I am looking forward to going again this month.

new people are always welcome at both great oak and bloc
also it is very easy to get into a game, there is almost always more games then people but feel free to bring games you want to play
great oak is terrific place to game and many people bring snacks also you can come and go as you please
or stay the whole time
and yes i am at work and really dont feel like being productive
the next 2 months are not the typical 3rd sat but the 4th sat and then it should be back to 3rds

Last month I counted ~40 people coming and going through the day. We generally have 5-6 games running at any one time.

As Skaboy said, then next two Great Oak Game Days will be on the 4th Saturday; Feb 26th, and Mar 26th.

Then it will (hopefully) go back to the normal schedule of the 3rd Saturday.

Hi all. I was only able to make if for a few hours, but I had a great time meeting many of you. Thank you again to the host!

I had a chance to play a few new games: Zen Master and Tako Judo. I was also willing to strong arm a few into playtesting Shifters, for which I'm most appreciative! I'd be happy to include any of you in the credits if interested.

Cheers!

And in a similar but different vein, here are the games that I played:
http://boardgamegeek.com/plays/bydate/user/emcglohon/subtype..., at least as much as my fuzzy memory recollects.

Just a reminder -- the next game day will be 4/16 (the 3rd Saturday, back to our semi-normal schedule).

And as a special treat the Canton Board Gamers (run by Kirusun & skaboy?) will be using the Great Oak Dining Room on 5/7.
