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)

      Thanks, he's a bit better but needs to finish his antibiotic (which makes him not want to eat, ugh). And he's being a bit of a prima donna lol

    I was talking to someone a few weeks ago at Denny's the last time I came to play (maybe a month ago). Their friend is a librarian and was looking for work. I'm in the midst of hiring a Children's and teen librarian (thats why you hvent seen me for a while, and won't see me tomorrow). If who ever that was sees this, tell their friend they have until tomorrow to get in a resume, cover letter, and references. They can find all the relevant information on Hudson Library's website (hudsonlibrary.org). Sorry I'm bugging everyone with this but I can't for the life of me remember who that was.

      Oh good. I thought it was you Jamie, but I wasn't sure. I didn't think to post it here sooner, but the job is posted on all the list serves, so maybe she already saw it. We stop taking applications today, so emailing it would probably be best. Good luck to her in her search.

      Thanks so much! She plans to apply today. :)

    Our first game of the week of the Cleveland Board Gamers is Brass, and I'd like to present it at this event. This seats three or four players. If you're interested, please arrive strictly by 6pm... and I prefer earlier if you need training.

    Michael, I would like to try again at learning -from you- the game Tzolkin (or however it's spelled). Also, if you could bring your copy of TransAmerica, that would be appreciated, it's Paul's "most favortie game" and it's a simple one to teach should any "newbies" arrive. ;)

    I wish I could be there...I was in a car accident-smacked by a drunk driver- last Friday , so it will be a while before I can come back to play with you all again. Car totaled, fractured leg. 10 weeks before I can walk on it. Soooo, maybe in a few weeks I will get someone to drive me and wheel me in. See you soon.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
