Beer & Boardgames: A Game of Boards Edition

 

Spring Is Coming, Active Gamers, and it's time to play the Game of Boards!

 

Will you bluff and politic you fellow games like Littlefinger? Plot the destruction of your enemies like the Lannisters? Go all berserker like a Wilding attack? Honorably play by the rules and have your head cut off like good old Ned Stark? Or just drink beer and eat buffalo wings until you're in a stupor like King Robert?

The choice is yours. But remember, when you play the Game of Boards, you win...or you find another board game to play!

So come join me Beer & Boardgames very own Kings Landing, O'Malley's Irish Pub on Sunday, April 28th at 2:00 pm. We'll have a large selection of games on-hand, including several varieties of Risk, and games small, large, simple and complicated. Duct Tape shall be used to display your House Name (as well as your House colors thanks to various sharpies).

As always, I'll be acting as our group's Maester, and thus need a good head-count so I can inform the manager what type of set-up, and service our group will need. Like Lannisters, Active Gamers always pay their debts, and thus attendance is only available for Active Gamers who have paid their 2013 annual dues (payable HERE). Spots are limited, so like Varys the Spider, make sure all your plots are in order before signing up.

Please use the comments to set up carpooling, request a game you particularly want to play, or let the rest of the group know if you're going to bring a game and/or if you're willing to run or demo something.

HORDOR!

    Hands down, best board game meet I have ever been to. I had a blast playing The Resistance, even though I was accused of being a spy every game.

      lol. That's because you looked so shifty. Guilt is just written all over you.

    Steve and Rose were a bunch of jerks that kept cheating and ruining every game they participated in. I will never attend another meet... just kidding. Everyone was awesome and I really enjoyed the games and the group. Look forward to seeing everyone again.

    Nicole won't make it so I took off my guest. We have a birthday dinner to attend at 1PM, so I may be running a little late.

    Considering the event's theme, I thought this was appropriate: Adam Warrock, nerd rapper extraordinaire, is running 'Game Of Thrones' week on his website, releasing a new song a week based on the HBO series. Yesterday, the track was HODOR (he, at least, knows how to spell it correctly).

    Tracks are released free for download. You can check it out here: http://www.adamwarrock.com/?p=3253

    Hi there, this will be my first meet with this group and just wondering if I should bring any games. I can also car pool for anyone that happens to live in Morrisville, NC.

    Here is my board game collection.. I think it is up to date.

      I know Jin is going to bring Bang, and Lauren has Agricola, and Manny has Sentinels. But feel free to bring whatever you would like to play, provided you are willing to teach and run the game.

      April 22, 2013

    • Early Y.

      I might bring The Resistance and Cards Against Humanity.

    I'm going to bring Phase 10 with me if anybody wants to get in on the game.

    Martell is for vengeance.

    I'm going to bring Smallworld, X-wing and King of Tokyo. I can also bring some Game of Thrones card games deck and teach people how to play if anyone wants to learn? (It's 2 to 6 players.) It's kind of similar to Magic, but is very thematic to the show/books, if we're going with that theme haha.

      So I might not have time to get any decks together by Sunday, sorry :( I will bring everything else still though.

    Hey folks. I'm a board gamer and hiker which is what led me to this group. This will be my first meetup with you guys, and I'm looking forward to it. I'll be bringing a handful of games with me, notables including 7 Wonders, Dominion (with expansions), and Ticket to Ride, as well as a few other card games and lesser known board games.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
