It's Friday, Friday, Gettin' Down With Boardgames!

Ah, a Rebecca Black reference. How timely! Anyway, hope ya'll can join Kim and me for a night of board games.

After playing phone tag with the manager at Jinky's, I'm going to put that location aside for now and have us meet at the mall (Westfield Sherman Oaks Fashion Square) food court again. I'm thinking/hoping that a Friday night will be a bit quieter than the busy Sunday afternoon we had before.
The mall does close at 9 and I think that includes the food court, so keep that in mind when choosing games you'd like to bring to play. The good news is, there's more space at the mall, so I'm going to raise the RSVP limit.

Please note, you're welcome to come a little later if you can't make it right at 6pm. Feel free to bring any games you like to play, plus a happy, competitive-but-not-crazy attitude. :-) See you then! We-we-we so excited!

How to find us: The easiest way I've found is to enter the parking garage from the light at Fashion Square Drive and Hazeltine, between Riverside and the 101. Enter and go up to the top (sky) level. Park and go through the sliding double doors and now you're in the food court. Turn left and go to the far west side of the food court, and look for board gamers! :-)

    A big thank you goes out to all who attended! The sun streaming through the west window of the food court only bothered us for a little while, and it was much quieter on a Friday night than on a Sunday afternoon. :-) Kim and I appreciated your positive attitudes (but if you beat us in a game tonight, we did NOT appreciate that...haha!) I'll be scheduling another meet up soon, so keep an eye out.

    For our last minute no rsvp's, we hope to see you at the next one. :-) Enjoy your weekend, everyone.

    I won't be able to attend either. I'm helping my daughter move into her new house. See you guys next time.

    March 28, 2014

  • Jason

    Sorry, something has come up. I won't be able to make it tonight. Hopefully next time!

    March 28, 2014

  • Joshua R.

    Alas. Change of plans. I can't make it this week.

    March 27, 2014

  • Lisa

    Sorry, it looks as though I won't be able to attend tomorrow night. I'll see you next time.

    March 27, 2014

  • Abraham P.

    I had to change mine to a no as well. I ended up making plans for that day. Hope to attend the next one though.

    March 27, 2014

  • Kevin H.

    Glad the location is at the mall.

    March 26, 2014

  • Marty C.

    I am glad that a location was found. Unfortunately, given a load of extra work I will have to do on Friday on a monthly newsletter I edit and publish, I will probably not be able to get to this meetup. Indeed, if I finish this work in time to game somewhere, I will probably go to Friday Night Dice which is fairly close to where I live. I hope that everybody enjoys the gaming.

  • Paul B

    I have to change to a no. It would take me probably over an hour to get there from where I am at being as it will be a Friday evening and I probably won't get out of work until 6:15 to 6:30. That means I won't get there until 7:30 til 8:00 so I am going to have to pass.

    I apologize but I had to change my RSVP to a no for this one. My mother in law is coming to visit from Denmark and we'll be in a cleaning frenzy this weekend trying to prepare. I hope that it is a fun night and will definitely try to attend another event real soon.

    I just joined so was wondering where it is and# of people allowed

    Hi, This was posted 15 minutes ago & there are no spots available! How does that happen?

    March 22, 2014

    • Mary

      I didn't see it either.

      Good to know I'm not the only one! Thanks Mary

    Tomorrow is the day. Do we have a location yet?

    February 27, 2014

    • Felicity

      It's Friday, March 28th, Charles. :-) NOT tomorrow. See you on the 28th...I'll announce a location when we have one, I promise.

      February 27, 2014

    • Charles S.

      Wow! I was REALLY off!! See you then.

      February 28, 2014

  • Charles S.

    Does anybody here play a card game called "Munchkin"?? Is anybody interest in playing? Or in me running a Munchkin demo at this event?

    February 24, 2014

    • Felicity

      If the game isn't big and bulky and would cause an imposition for you to bring, bring it. If it gets played, it gets played, if it doesn't, it doesn't. For me personally, I never know until right that moment what game I'm in the mood for. :-)

      February 26, 2014

    • Charles S.

      I am just a huge planner type personality. I just like to see everybody like what I like.

      February 26, 2014

  • Charles S.

    Has the location been decided yet?

    February 25, 2014

    • Abraham P.

      Its on the 28th of March. Should be ok.

      February 26, 2014

    • Felicity

      Yes, it's weeks from now. We'll jump off that bridge when we get there, but I like your enthusiasm! ;-)

    Ack! My roommate is performing at the Dragonfly that evening! I won't be able to make it again ;_;

    February 24, 2014

    • Felicity

      Your roommate might not even be onstage 'til 10pm, so you never know. Doublecheck on that set time! ;-)

    The Westfield Woodland Hills mall on Topanga has an upper floor to the food court that is really spacious and has lots of tables. I used to go there with another meet up. No one ever bothered us, though of course I would buy something. There is a frozen yogurt booth right there. It is next to the AMC theaters.

    February 22, 2014

    • Felicity

      I'm sorry that happened, Marty. Our game event was only planned from 2pm to 5pm. I think the mall closes at 7pm anyway. Our events will likely never be more than 3 or 4 hours in duration. If the games that people bring are too long to be played within that time, maybe try some different games? Within the 3 hour time I played 3 or 4 different games. I think it's nice to mix it up and also, have the freedom to move from table to table. Games that are several hours long don't allow for that freedom, and Kim and I were more interested in the "social mingling" aspect that shorter games allow for. :-)

      Some, but certainly not all, strategy games need extended playing time as players need the extra time to be able to change one's strategy if one's original playing strategy is not working well. Besides, strategy games require thinking and sometimes there are game complications which require some players to slow down so as to not make mistakes.

      February 24, 2014

  • Abraham P.

    I'll put myself as a yes for now to reserve a spot, but Fridays are usually hard for me. Still a ways off, so might turn out ok.

    February 22, 2014

    • Felicity

      Hope we get to see you!

      February 23, 2014

  • Charles S.

    I will try to be there. Let me know if there is a game you want me to bring. I started a new discussion to show you what games I have available to me.
