That would also require bringing along the misses on account of her being the food supply! Perhaps I can play the "father's day" game now, since that is right around the corner.

Hi all!

Been in A2 for a long time and BG'r even longer. I wish I could make it out this Saturday, unfortunately I am traveling. Looking forward to a June visit.

What should a newbie bring?

Thanks!

I almost forgot though, Saturday is my wife's birthday, and I'm supposed to be organizing a BBQ for ... so disappearing to play games probably isn't the best timing for that day!

Catch up with you all another month.

well food is a potluck snack extravaganza
so bring what you can to munch and share
feel free to bring any games you wish to play but there are typically a lot to choose from

Yeup. I went for the first time a few months ago. Met a number of great people. The room is a perfect setup too, complete with en suite kitchen area!

I'm happy I got to make it out to this group for the first time. Had a great time! Terrific setting, nice variety of games played and a bunch of friendly people. Got the calendar marked for next month!

Sounds good! I wasn't able to make it ... but we did have a lovely BBQ, where talked about games for a while over Brats and Beers.

It would be fun to do a local BGG BBQ sometime. People could play games if they want, but if it was more about meeting people and chatting, that could be fun too. Sometimes its nice getting to know your opponents a littel better

Reminder: It's this Saturday 7/16 at 1PM!

This month (if fedex complies...) I'll have some new goodies -- a Crokinole board! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isudfD7dcXI)

And I'm trying out a subscription to BoardGameExchange (http://www.boardgameexchange.com/) -- a Nexflix -style board game rental site. I hope to have some new games in from them as well.

Hope to see you there!

FYI, because of scheduling conflicts the GO Board Game day this month will be on the 4th Saturday. -- 9/24

Oct's day will most likely be cancelled, as I'll be travelling a ton that month. -- I'd suggest attending the Buckeye Games Fest (http://www.buckeyeboardgamers.org/buckeyegamefest.htm) instead.

I will be running demo games of Engage at the Buckeye Game Fest on the 14th & 15th.
Maybe I will paint some of the pieces blue & gold.

That's correct, it's happening on the 15th. I will be traveling, but my neighbor Tom Idzikowski will be running it for me.

A note for all you regulars that come out, please help out Tom to make sure that the place is back in order after your boardgaming revelry.
