Anyone and everyone is welcome. Not even the regulars know how to play everything, so rules are usually taught for whatever is getting played. Unless anything changes, the next Great Oak meetup should be Saturday, Feb. 18. It's usually the third Saturday of the month. Usually.

Absolutely! We're usually teaching someone whichever game we decide to play.

Newcomers are very welcome.

[edit: heh. That's what I get for replying to a post before reading the entire thread. ]

Hi guys,
it's nice to see there's some activity in Ann Arbor. I'll be visiting in April and I wouldn't mind to play a few games while I'm there. Unfortunately I'm flying out the day the April meeting is, but I thought this might be a good place to ask around
I might even be able to bring a few smaller games from Germany and save some geeks a bit on shipping...
Cheers,
C

What's your timeline in town? There are a few good events and possibly even some inviting homes as well.

I don't know the details yet 100%, but I'll arrive on the 15th and will have to leave on the 21st.
At some point I'll have to give a talk, that's not scheduled yet, but I'll know in advance which evenings I'll have free time. Plus: I'll have a car, so I'm somewhat flexible.

Another one to be aware of: Fun4All (In Ypsilanti, which is adjacent to Ann Arbor) has a well attended weekly game night every Wedensday from 6:00 - 9:00 PM. Lots of good people end up there. Attendance is usually around 20 people.

Argh, I am kicking myself that I missed this date. I am relatively new to the whole gaming scene and just started using BGG earlier this winter.

My interest in gaming is stemming from an idea I had to create a card game where you take on the role of a micro brewer. I've put up a bit of info about it on my website and youtube (links below).

I will mark May 19 26 on my calendar unless I read otherwise. Thanks for organizing and offering this!

I have lived all over the US in my short life, and the gamer community in Southeastern Michigan is phenomenal. Some of the best friends I've met and I would not want it any other way. If you can shuffle cards and roll dice you'll fit in just fine.
