I'm planning on taking some time off over the holidays, so I've decide to host a day long board game-a-thon. It'll run from 8am to somewhere around 10pm.

The gaming event will be located in Carlisle, PA (20 minutes outside of Harrisburg, PA). The church I attend owns a community center building and will be letting me use it for the event. They have lots of tables and chairs, there are bathrooms, and even a kitchen area. I'll be recruiting some people to run a food and drink area.

There will be NO entry cost. All I ask is that you bring yourself, some games, and some friends. I'll be bringing many games from my collection, but the more the merrier!

I'll be posting more info on this thread as time goes on. I've also posted the event on MeetUp.com.

If you plan on attending, PLEASE message me so that I can plan accordingly.

That's awesome Vic, that sounds like a great event. Being that it's very close to the holidays I'm not sure what our schedules will be like, but if we can make it we'll let you know.

I have this scheduled, although a bit more time must pass before I can confirm.

Not sure if the schedule will allow, but I would love to come and be a part. Looks like your taste in games and my taste in games are very similar. I will let you know for sure in a couple weeks.

Not to be a tease, but I'm interested in coming if the holiday schedule allows. I'll confirm. I have sent the word to guys I play with so there may be more as well.

Thanks for doing this.

This is awesome. I'm down in Shippensburg, PA. I doubt my holidays schedule and work will allow me to attend, it's nice to know that boardgames receive some love in my area. If I can make it I will confirm as soon as I know.

I've uploaded a copy of the flyer I made to Dropbox.com. Feel free to download and print it. Pass them on to your friends or hang them up in different locations (as long as you have permission to do so).

Looks like I have a baker coming to the game day! Once I get a better idea of how many people are coming, I can let her know and she'll bring some cookies!!!

South-central PA is a bit too far for me here in the Philadelphia region.

It'd be cool if, at some point, I can grab a carful from my gaming group and pop over to your place for a little East-vs-South PA action. Or vice-versa, should you ever travel east.

Maybe in the summer time.

I've been to the West Chester area to play some games in the past couple months. Friend of mine lives in the Bala Cynwyd area. He'll be coming out for my game day.

We can all meet in the middle at the Central PA Gamers in Mechanicsburg/Harrisburg over the summer. I get up there a lot more over the summer than I do during school.

OHhhhh so close and yet so far!
I'll be in Hanover, visiting from upstate NY, on the 29th -- but we are having our extended family Xmas that day (35 people) so I am unable to come.
Someday...
I hope you have a GREAT time!

I will be selling drinks, snacks, and possibly chili all day. The money will cover the costs of buying all of it.

As for games, my whole car is full of games! I've got a little of everything in there.

Just got back into York after a solid 8 hours gaming at the Tree House. Met a lot of new people, played some new games, had a good time. Thanks, Victor, for hosting the event. Looked like there was 4-5 different games going when I left around 8 PM. 20+ people? Good stuff.

Holy crap did I have fun yesterday! THANK YOU to everyone that came out!! I got to play some old and new games and had a BLAST! That last game of The Resistance was some of the most fun I've ever had in such a small amount of time.

Even with the snow, I think the day was a total success. I'm already thinking about planning to do this again in late Spring/early Summer. Let me know if you have interest and if so, let me know what weekends look good for you (you can PM the info). I'll try to pick a weekend that works the best.

Thanks Again!!
- Victor
