we're on for friday starting at 7! we go till typically around 3-ish, but certainly have played till longer if there were enough players to keep going. you can also arrive later. just text me before you show up!
We call this a home game because it's played out of my living room (where I live with my girlfriend), and it basically started as a home game. Lately, we've been playing on a private ROOFTOP - check out the pics! But this won't last as the weather gets colder. Then we'll take it to the lounge downstairs.
We're right here on 13th and 3rd, steps away from Union Square.
We now open the game up to anyone interested, but screen really tightly. We're looking for fellow normal people. We screen out thugs and riff-raff. We probably screen too tightly because most Fridays when we play, we're struggling to get enough players haha. (Guess we'd be packed if we opened it up to the whole world?) Conversation at the table ranges from what so-and-so was saying during a TED talk, to whether Batman would beat Superman or vice versa (wow that sounds so much worse when you post it up for all to see), to some sports-betting talk, to... I dunno just normal stuff.
The point is that it is not an intimidating group at all. Just seriously fun, relaxed vibe. If you killed the vibe, you seriously wouldn't be invited back, ha.
There's beers, soda, pizza. We're relaxed and we're having a good time.
No one is out to "crush it" and try to pay rent with their poker winnings. There is one True Donkey here that used to actually host the game. It's seriously fun when he starts losing and goes on tilt. We all have a great time laughing at him while he whines about whatever hand being "so sick". He takes it like a champ.
How do you NOT wanna be a part of this good time?
FYI, in case it's not obvious: please note that even though it may say that only 1 or 2 donkeys are attending the weekly meetup, the fact is that we ALWAYS have like 7-10 guys that are playing; they just aren't a part of Meetup.
