It looks like we have a steady group of regulars so I thought we could think about ways to advertise. I talked with a couple friends who seemed interested and we may have one more coming this week.

So, any ideas for increasing our numbers?

We could put up posters at Fandom, Comic Book Shoppe, and Toys on Fire. This might be the easiest way to begin. Any other thoughts would be great!

On to the games:

I recently picked up Alhambra from the hitboardgames sale. I can bring out that oldie but goodie this week. I'll also bring out Modern Art and Pandemic.

I would still like to give Acquire a try; I never had a chance to join the game the last time it was here.

Goa would be nice if someone has that?

Failing unforeseen circumstances I should be there this week. Alas nothing new for the bag yet, so I will be bringing the usual.

I'm quite intrigued by Cas$h n Gun$ if anyone has it. Otherwise it will "probably" be my next purchase within the next couple of months.

Kevin, for advertising we might also think of libraries and other public activity centers.

See you all in a couple days

That looks great Jamie! Awesome job.

Maybe you could mention the boardgamegeek forums as a contact spot for more information?

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/forum/114/boardgamegeek/ontario seems to hard to remember but just some text saying see the boardgamegeek Ontario forum for more information would be great.

Jamie, did you just whip up a poster in an hour or two in response to the idea, or had you been waiting for the opportunity to unveil it? That's pretty awesome, by the way.

I'll be there this week, and Colleen & Sam may also show up (I don't know yet for either though).

I'm thinking word-of-mouth can do wonders as well. I can check with some people I know to see if anyone else is interested in coming out.

In terms of games, I am going to refrain from suggesting or requesting anything this week and just go with what people want (I may renege on that statement when I get there on Thursday, but we'll see).

I just whipped it up - as I wanted to avoid doing my real work.

Awesome job Jaimie - Must be the weather or something as I'm in the same mood and can't get started on pretty well anything yuk

Unfortunately I think since we are just going to "throw this out there" ... so to speak, we will need a caveat along the lines of "teens and preteens must be accompanied by an adult" or something like that.

My concern is that there are, unfortunately, a few parents, who may just decided to drop their kids off and tell them to "go play".

Kevin and I pushed hard to allow the younger crowd in the Legion and committed/promised to have them always accompanied and "under control" of an adult.

They apparently had an incident just a little while back with "kids" running around making a fuss, upsetting Legion members and worse they actually did some serious/expensive damage.

We need to ensure that our younger members don't get banned because someone thought that this was a cheap opportunity to get the kids out of the house.

ninja... I'm not the only one who needs a rematch with Cameron....ninja

I suppose something to keep in mind is that summer will likely be a bit slower ...

I think I'll show up tonight.

I'll bring Macao, Endeavor, and Havana, those are my top "gotta play these with more than 2" choices.

Thanks for coming everyone.

Personally I got in a round of Endeavor followed by Acquire.

I've been wanting to try Endeavor it and it didn't disappoint; I'll have to play it again with 4 next time. Beautiful looking game too!

Yep a great evening once again! We are small but mighty!

Once again a few games went on my "want" list. My favorite of the night was definitely Acquire. Followed by Scrips and Scribes and even though it was completely chaotic Guillotine... To be truthful I haven't played a "bad game" yet with this group!

Thanks again guys! A great evening for sure!
