Hello, fellow boardgamers! I would like some feedback on your interest in having a second meetup on a monthly basis to complement the current one on the third Saturday of every month. To that end, I have created two polls, one to determine the preferred area around Dallas and the other to determine the preferred day and time. Please go to the Polls section and vote in each of these polls. (You're welcome to vote in some older polls as well, if you haven't done so.)
You may also reply to this message and tell me your personal preferences and ideas regarding this group, and/or share them on the message board.
The hard part for me will be to find a specific location to host the regular event. If you have any suggestions or would like to help as an assistant organizer, please let me know!
Curtis Kling, organizer Dallas Area Boardgames Meetup Group
Come for a day or night of fun! Meet and play with other board game aficionados. A variety of games are played: American classics like Clue and Scrabble, Euro-style games like Carcassone and Ticket to Ride, cult games like Settlers of Catan and Robo Rally,tile games like Pickamino and Rummikub, and silly games like Shear Panic and Walk the Dog, to name just a few that members have brought. Our regular meetup is on the third Saturday of every month at Fuddrucker's on the southwest corner of Frankford Road and the Tollway. I try to schedule special themed events around certain holidays, such as Halloween, April Fool's Day and New Year's. I am always looking for volunteers (i.e. assistant organizers) who would like to host a gaming party at their home. I am also willing to schedule events for playing specific games (maybe as a tournament). Let me hear your ideas for improving this group. The more people participate, the more fun we all can have!
