This event includes a small item present exchange (participation optional) at 6 PM. Presents might be something home-made, or something humorous or not with a Science, Philosophy or Skeptics theme?

Pool table, air hockey table and tons of board games will be there. Feel free to bring one or more games to share. Bring snacks or drinks if you are able. If not, bring yourself. Guests welcome. I will email my address and phone number when you RSVP. Please RSVP early so I can get that info to you in time.

Turkey and fixin's will be served after the 6 PM present exchange. Any side dishes can be re-warmed in my microwaves or oven. Drinks (hot/cold/alcoholic or non) and snacks will be available earlier. Most games will start after dinner, though some small, very short-time ones will be available from 4:30 on.

    Super potluck party! It was great to meet all of these interesting, sociable people with whom we have a lot in common. Great food. Lots of wine. The games and conversation were all a lot of fun.

      Hurray! Glad you made it to my party. Ward, you did a bang up job on that gift you brought. Very creative and effective. Let's see if you are just as creative for Zombie Jesus.

    I tried to get my garage in order so we could play air hockey and pool, but I didn't succeed, so we'll have to skip that this time. I promise they will be available for the next game night.

    I have a lot of board games and some small silly xmas themed ones (like tic-tac-toe with reindeer, xmas trivia, holiday karaoke and other silly holiday games. I have some political games and I have a ton of board games that are accessible. I look forward to seeing you tonight. Oh -- if anyone has mistletoe (real or fake) please bring it. Thanks!

    Just a bit of clarification on the presents exchange. First - it's optional. Second, if you participate please put your name on it as the "from" person. I have some tags if you need them. Presents should be something small/inexpensive - like a pin, magnet, bumper sticker, buttons or something else not too pricey. Home-made is great. The theme is atheist or science, but other things are fine. Making fun of religious zealots is always cool.

    When you arrive you'll put your present in a bin & you'll get a number. At 6 PM we'll start calling out numbers & when yours is called you get to choose whichever present you want (all are wrapped, so you'll be guessing at contents). If you want to exchange presents w/ someone later, of course that's fine.

    Don't forget to ask me about the magic glasses for viewing the tree.

    Right after the presents exchange we'll have dinner. Up until that point we'll have snacks and drinks. We'll play games after dinner - more on games in my next comment.

      Sorry -- I thought I sent you the address and directions. I'll send a message to every one who RSVPed with that info - as a reminder if they received it previously

    I'm not sure quite how to UN-attend. Conflicting dates on the 8th of Dec and I've already promised a ride to one of my friends out in Veneta who can't night drive anymore to stuff. Sorry. I know it will be a fun night--with our group it always seems to be! Missing y'all already

      For future reference, in the upper right corner there should be a green square that says "Your RSVP: Yes" Below that is a link which reads "Change your RSVP". If you click that, a box will open where you can select "No" and submit a new RSVP.
