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)

    I had fun tonight. While I ate Micheal "made me" play Blokus - which, of course, I lost in my usual fashion. The I had real fun trying to "show off; whilst playing Poison. Michael "let me leave early" from that game to play Union Pacific with Rob, Jaimee, and Heather... which was a _blast!_ as usual. We followed this up with a silly gam of Monster Factory. Afterwhich I did my usual room straightening before heading over to Denny's. Once relocated I played two fun and relatively simple games. The first was the new Pandemic. The seond was called The Adventurerers: The Pyramid of Horus - in which I'd've done much better had I realized I needed to get my loot _out_ of the pyramid _before_ becoming blocked in (litterally! - soh phun!)
