Just wanted to say welcome to everyone, and I hope to actually see you at a meeting soon. Next Saturday the 20th, we will go from 1pm until late, so feel free to come out for all of the day or part of it.
We will make some Mexican food, Chili, and order pizza for dinner, for those people interested in a free and tasty meal :)
I know sometimes it can be a bit intimidating going somewhere new, with a new group of people, but just come out, relax and have some fun. If you're worried about not knowing anyone, don't be, as we're a new group. If you're worried about not knowing any of the new games, don't be. We have a lot of games in our collection, and love to teach the games so people can learn what they're about and join the hobby.
We are all about the fun, so come on out and enjoy yourself!
We're here to play some boardgames, and have some fun.
Thegames we playrange from the abstract boardgames, traditional boardgames, the new Eurogames, Party Games to the whimsical fast play fun card/board games. Some of us have been gaming for decades, others only for a short time. The majority type of game played are ones called "Euro Games" - these are family strategy games. Anyone who loves playing games will love Euro Games ... Many people are not really interested in "playing" games but are more interested in the social aspects in that, that is what they perceive what game playing is about. In other words, Party type games and Trivia Games are more social occasions than game occasions. For us the game play is the focus and the social interaction with our friends is the reward.
If you want to have some fun, meet some nice people, and just relax and have a good time, then come on out. You really have nothing to lose.
