Dan's Game Night Q&A:

Q: What is this thing?

A: This is a low-key, regular, games gathering in the Old Town neighborhood of Alexandria. Come when you can, but the doors open at 6 and close at 10.

Q: Yes, yes, but what GAMES will be played?

A: Board games, social games, card games, strategy games, word games... all are fair game. It really depends on who/how many show, and what they're in the mood for. I have on hand a fairly decent selection of games, including: Settlers of Cataan, Carcassonne, Bohnanza, Ticket to Ride, Taboo, Scattergories, Balderdash, Uno, Dominoes, Scrabble, Quiddler, and many more. Additionally, if someone has a game they are aching to try, bring it on!

Q: That's a lot of choice! Is there anything that won't be played?

A: This is meant to be a more laid-back, low-commitment games night. Therefore, there will be no RPGs. Also, the House frowns on interminable games that usually end in players saying, "I give up" like Monopoly and Risk.

Q: Thursday night is the middle of the week! I'm a responsible adult, and can't have fun 'cause I'm working!

A: Yes, I realize it's not optimal for many. However, I try to minimize the impact by having the evening end by 10. Also, I try to provide a crockpot soup for those coming in need of sustenance.

Q: Woohoo! Food!!

A: Yes, and if you feel so motivated, you could bring some munchies or beverages to share. NOT A REQUIREMENT!

Q: There are only 12 RSVPs available!

A: Yes, I know. This is a gathering at my own place, so space is necessarily limited, sorry! HOWEVER, CHECK BACK closer to/on the day of the event. Plenty of times something comes up in a person's schedule and a "yes" becomes a "no," opening up a space or two. If you can't get in on this one, try the next. I try to host these pretty frequently.

Q: But how do I get there?

A: We're about a 10-15 minute walk east of the King Street Metro, a couple of blocks south of Duke Street. Also, parking is available on the street. If you need more specific directions, let me know. ***IMPORTANT NOTE: DUE TO COMMUNITY GATES AND BARRIERS, IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO LEGALLY ACCESS OUR NEIGHBORHOOD DIRECTLY FROM DUKE STREET BY CAR -- YOU WILL HAVE TO ENTER FROM US 1 (HENRY ST/PATRICK ST).  DO NOT BELIEVE MAPQUEST, GPS, OR ANY OTHER SOURCE SUGGESTING OTHERWISE.***

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
