Eastside Games with Friends Weekly Meetup

Welcome to our weekly playgroup!

We are a fun group of people who enjoy getting together to act foolish, make jokes, talk trash, laugh, and play games. Because of the spontaneous nature of our group, we usually show up not knowing what we're going to play. Some days we end up playing just "our faves". The truth is that we'll play any game if someone brings it and convinces us we want to learn how to play it. It's not about what types of games we play, it's that we play games.

We have games starting at various times until 8 with people arriving at various intervals as well. (We are usually able to stay until 9:30 to finish games.)  There really isn't any reason that you can't get into a game no matter when you arrive.

 

Bonus Round at Denny's!

"Party on" til the "wee hours" of the morning! We have the back room from 8:30pm-ish, but really 9pm. We've been promised our own server - and she's "like totally awesome!" - we love her! (until we're settled, thanks to Manager Dave)

    :-( Due to someone placing invisible razor blades in my throat, a cough, having no voice and generally feeling like crap. I'm skipping tonight. :-( I never get sick. Sigh. However It's been a gradual increase in crappyness for several days. And it's a Tuesday!! This super blows. :-(

    Umpsty and crabbity are behind me. I am now back to happy, normal (or as normal as I ever am) and looking forward to some good gaming! Jessiye, I would not say no to a repeat of Finish Lines! And/or Konnexi. Just sayin' ;-) Is it just me or is Finish Lines kind of like game-crack?

    Jaimee, if she brings it, will you play and not know all the American anthem-like songs again? Please?

    Since I'll be playing Power Grid today, I request help with (um) incorporating / getting included any newbies who may show up today. Thanks in advance. Also, I'll be going home after gameplay at Panera. Please go enjoy Denny's - those of you who are able. Thanks for your understanding.

    I have some good news for Jessiye. I have bought Le Havre and will be bringing it on Tuesday. We can only play the two-player version, or the short version for three or four players, however, due to time constraints. The long versions for 2, 3, 4, and 5 players last 2:00h, 3:00h, 3:20h, and 3:20h, respectively. The short versions last 0:45h, 2:00h, 2:10h, and 2:30h, respectively.
