Game Night at Mister Tramps - Cards Against Humanity

**The Details**

We had so much fun meeting here to play last month that I'm really excited to do this again.

This month I'll be bringing Cards Against Humanity (with expansion packs) It requires absolutely no skill or previous knowledge to play so it's great for first timers or for veterans. You can jump right in a play on the first round.

I plan to have 2 games going simultaneously. A fun game of each consists of about 5-8 people.

We'll be in the back room at Mister Tramps so as soon as you come in just head straight to the back. I'll have some signs up on the tables but we'll be easy to find.

**Meeting and Mingling**

Player / Team Swaps! - This worked out really well last time and gave everyone a a chance to mingle with everyone else, so what we'll do is : You'll play for some time at your current game (about 30 minutes ) Then about half the players from each game will swap over to the other game. We'll do this about 2-3 times over the course of the evening so everyone gets to meet everyone.

**Important Notes**

- If the main parking lot at Mister Tramps is full - park in the back of the lot at Target. Otherwise you run the risk of getting towed.

- Mister Tramps has 5 dollar mini personal sized well pitchers on special all night, a really good beer selection, and their food is very delicious as well if you are hungry.

- Cards Against Humanity is entirely vulgar and offensive, which makes it a total blast to play but if you're the easily embarrassed or offended type it'll not be the game for you.

      the starter....pricey. But I REALLY appreciate you trying to help. And silver lining: I've gone on a couple dates with the guy who towed it

    I had fun, but trying to get to know others while playing was a bit of a challenge.

      Don't worry. It's very simple. We can explain it for everyone in about a minute.

    ** PLEASE READ : THE PLAN**
    To start we will have 5 tables set up - one game per table. Please find me when you arrive so I can direct you towards your seat for the first game.

    The first game will kick off at ~7:15 - so arrive on time to grab a drink and be seated. The first player/team swap will happen at 7:45.

    We'll do team/player swaps about every 30 minutes after that. You'll just see me stand up and holler "TIME TO SWAP" Me or your table will leader will randomly point at half of the players at their table to swap. We'll pick different folks each time so sometimes you will move and sometimes you will stay put.

    TABLE LEADERS * You will stay put during player swaps. You'll get to meet everyone swapping through and also keep an eye on your card deck :)

      Can Table Leaders make the decision to order snacks for the table too? :)

    **PLEASE READ - It's long but important (That's what she said?) **

    Folks, if you can't make it - please do your best to update your rsvp by 6:00pm this evening. So I can get a final tally. This will help me organize the tables.

    Those of you that volunteered to bring the extra decks of cards - DOUG, MIKE and ERIN - please try to be a few minutes early if you can. You'll each be the 'leader' of your respective tables. (erin I know you may be a few minutes late that's ok)

    Wow so many people! It looks like so far we have 3 sets of CAH games and can get 3 simultaneous games going. If anyone has an extra set please let me know, or a good group game, and we'll work on a 4th game -otherwise I do have some extra game ideas.

    January 8, 2014

    • Doug W.

      I can bring another CAH set.

      January 8, 2014

      With this many people signed up, it looks like we'll need it!

      January 6, 2014

    • Jenna W.

      Yep, sure will! If anyone has any other fun group/party games feel free to bring them.

    I'm new to the group, but I have CAH and an expansion pack (the 4th, I think?) that I am happy to bring. The only caveat: I may be a few minutes late, as I'll be coming from a 6pm meeting downtown.

    January 2, 2014

    • Jenna W.

      Hi Erin, a few minutes is perfectly fine :) I just didn't want to rely on someone that wouldn't be there. Thanks!

      Okay, it'll likely be around 7:15 or so. I'm going to try to get out of my meeting early.

    Richard here! 35 and looking to make some friends. I havent been in Austin long and all of my friends are in louisiana. Should I bring some booze?

    1 · January 4, 2014

    • Jenna W.

      Richard - Mister Tramps is a bar :) I think they frown on bringing in external booze :)

      January 4, 2014

  • David360

    ;)

    January 2, 2014

  • Jenna W.

    If someone has an extra deck of CAH (preferably with the expansions) I'd love if you could bring that for the second game .

    PLEASE, if you volunteer for this be reliable and on time. Or if you'd like to bring any other games to play that's perfectly fine too as long as it's easy to teach/play and is group friendly. Otherwise I'll have a couple of other games to chose from.

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.
