Tentative Saturday Game Day: Open Gaming

Disclaimer: I will be working either a day shift or a night shift this Saturday. If I have to work during the day, I won't be able to host this game day and it will be cancelled. I will try to settle this by Thursday, but it may be Friday afternoon before I can post whether or not I can actually host this event. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP and I will make sure to let everyone know if I can host it or not.

Hey everyone! We have had a great turnout on Thursdays, but I know some people can't make it. So, I made some plans to reserve an open area in my apartment complex for this Saturday and I would like to invite all of you to come play! There should be plenty of room for everyone. Please bring any game you would enjoy playing. If you would like to have something specific to eat / drink, please bring it. There will be a fridge and I will try to provide some (non-alcoholic) drinks. Feel free to bring beer or other drinks if you want.

    I'll be there at 1pm& I'm going to bring Britannia, more to learn the game with 2-3 other people so we can play a full game at another time because I don't think I'll be able to stay.

    Hey, Nick, in five minutes I'll be heading out, bringing two chairs. SW Champaign, huh? I'll bring my passport for the border patrol.

      Oops, no chairs coming. They are in the basement and moldy. Ick.

    My yes is a tentative yes. :) We have another gaming invitation for the afternoon, along with two sports events in the morning, and a visiting dog for the weekend. I'm pushing for starting gaming at 1p with y'all then just heading straight to the other gaming party, and make a day of it. We'll see if I get takers at the house. :)

    THANKS FOR SETTING THIS UP, KEVIN. Hope it works out with your schedule.

    If you have a folding chair or two, please bring them. Turn out was higher than expected. Also, to reiterate, we need to clear out by 6, so keep that in mind as you start games.

    Can I get a ride to and from this? No MTD running in this area on Saturdays.

    October 1, 2013

    • Paul N.

      It turns out Kevin won't be able to give me a lift. Is there anyone else out there that can give me a lift to and from this?

      October 4, 2013

    • Paul N.

      Could someone give me a ride there from Country Fair? (I can get to CF by bus.)

  • Karen R.

    I might not make it right at 1PM because I work in the morning, but I will be there.

    Never been to this apartment complex before. Where exactly is the group meeting?

    October 4, 2013

    • Nick V.

      The main building at the front of the complex - not anyone's apart,em

      Apartment. There should be ample parking.

    Great idea Kevin, unfortunately Saturdays are worse than Thursdays for me during football season in regards to work.

    October 1, 2013

    • Jeff D.

      What do you do that's sensitive to football season?

      October 2, 2013

    • Eric R.

      I analyze football games that create unique stat packages for clients

    Sounds fun. I'll try to drag the husband for a few hours. I can bring Lords of Waterdeep, Smashup, Dixit, Last Night on Earth and/or Betrayal on House on the Hill, depending if anyone is interested in any of those.

    October 2, 2013

    • Jeff D.

      I'd be game to try any of the first three with the Grasshopper (age 8). I suspect he's a bit young for Last Night or Betrayal. We'll probably bring some combination of Sentinels, Scotland Yard, Dungeon!, and perhaps something else.

      October 2, 2013

  • Karen R.

    Sound like fun.

    Forgot to add...I live in Urbana.

    October 1, 2013

  • Jeff D.

    I will try to attend, most likely with the Grasshopper in tow. Will depend on some unknown things, though.
