This is the last week for voting in two Boardgames Meetup Group polls. One poll asks where you would like to have another regular meetup (besides the one at Fuddruckers) and the other asks when (day and time).
Regarding location, it's a close race between Carrollton/Addison and West Plano, with East Plano/Richardson not far behind. Regarding time, it's a tie between Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
If you have a preference, please vote in these polls soon. I intend to close them by Sunday, January 3. Then I will announce the results.
Also, you may reply to this message or contact me directly to express your preferences and/or recommendations for a good place to play boardgames. Even though I will be scheduling a second regular meetup next year, this does not preclude other boardgames meetups from occurring elsewhere in the Dallas area. However, I would need someone else to organize such events (as Dena and Grace have kindly been doing). The group is large enough that we could probably schedule two meetups on the same day once in a while.
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!
