First Game Night & Meet N Greet!!

Lets have our first official game night and get together to play some games.

After some much needed input from some very amazing gamers, I've decided that this first meetup event will be primarily to meet and greet, get to know each other and play GROUP/TEAM games only.  Due to the size and design of my condo, group/team games will work best.  I will have the tables set up for extra seating but we are gonna strictly make this meetup all about GROUP games!!  For those of you who wanted to play quieter more intimate games, there will be plenty of future opportunities to explore those.

So, please update your RSVP, especially if you dont think group games are your thing.  I apologize for all the updates and confusion, but with this being my first meetup and at my home, I needed to figure out and fine tune some details.

I'm still hoping to receive more donations for the tables/chairs...Thank you to those who have already donated.

This event is BYOB!  Parking will be limited.  The address will be emailed out with more detailed parking instructions a few days before the event.  If anyone has taboo, cranium, trivia, apples to apples, or other group games they could bring, that would be great!!

Look forward to meeting you all!!

      The only official outlet is Amazon. It's currently in stock. Make sure you do NOT pay more than $25; that happens when it runs out of stock and people try to price-gouge

    It was a great night. Thanks to Nancy, her friends and family who helped, and everyone who came, played, and brought snacks & games. Starting with impersonal trivia and stepping into close party games was a good plan. I can't wait for next time.

    • Nancy H.

      Thank u for bringing catchphrase. Yes I've played CAH and I know what kind of game it is and you do need to have a certain type of humour to play it but thanks do the reminder. :)

    I don't think I can make this one. This month is a bit hectic.

  • Nancy H.

    Hey guys! Due to space limitations, I'm gonna cap the meetup at 15 people. As we get closer, if there is a waiting list, I'll re-evaluate depending on the number of people planning to attend and those that are waiting. Please feel free to email me with any questions/concerns! Ciao!

    February 2, 2013

  • Nancy H.

    Hey guys!! So excited to see we've gotten a great start and people are signing up!! We'll be off to gaming in no time. Please RSVP when u can for the first scheduled game night/meet and greet scheduled for Sat March 9th at 6pm!!

    Depending on the number of people that are going to attend, we may need to recruit some help ie borrowing some tables and chairs. I have a small condo and although we can fit a good amount of people in here, seating will be an issue. If any of you own a game table with chairs, let me know. Also, if everyone is willing to help, I'd be happy to purchase a couple sets for our game nights if everyone wants to throw in a couple bucks? Ideas? Looking forward to hearing from you all!!
