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)

    Thatnks for the pix, Rob. I feel a little less sad and forlorn... I didn't see a Chuck (+fam) or a Jeff (+kids) or a Loren. But it was nice to see Jenn3 (playing _her_ favorite game *tehee*) I didn;t see you either, but then, such is the life of a photogranher :P

      Chuck was there with fam; I took a pic of them (his daughter had an excellent expression) but I accidentally deleted it while I was playing with the lighting. Jeff was there--was playing Munchkin Booty, as you noticed.

      Chuck's daughter has lots of great expressions! ;) And although I figured it was Jeff in that picture, given the game being played, but that guy _still_ d.o.e.s. n.o.t look like Jeff to me, so I will continue to believe that it was an alien imposter ;P someone pretending to be Jeff and foling everyone but me *harumpf! avec puffed out chest*

    Well, as one of the hosts, I guess I should write a 10,000 word essay on what happened... well, I can start by realizing that I left my cell phone at work, which I discovered five minutes before reaching Panera... so after screaming an expletive that I will not type here, I arrived at Panera. Obviously, that means photos will not be coming from me. :( Anyway, I wound up playing four games of cribbage three ways, 6-card (twice), 7-card, and 3-player. I also played Quiddler twice with the "Crowd Of Dena"®. Afterwards, it was a prototype called Ensurion I believe. The list of games played is here: http://www.meetup.com/Eastside-Games-with-Friends/messages/boards/thread/15091541/160#[masked] Please let us know if we're missing something. Thanks to everyone for attending, and we hope to see you once again for more fun and games! :)

      Fine by me--I'd much rather be the science officer in any case.

    • Jennifer H.

      Maybe one of you would rather be the Main Engineer (a Geordi or a Scottie) - so _then_ who's "my" 1st Officer?!?! *gregorious laughter*

    New Update: Since pink eye is highly contagious (and I still feel like cr@p), and since I need to be on the medication for at least 24hrs before I can be released back into the general poplus, I will not be coming out to play today. "Fearless leader" under quarantine.

      Rob- I _most_ certainly did :P PetePatrick- You _may_ call me Shirley, but I _would_ like to be on time for dinner ;)

    This is your Captain writing. Since I'm "on (another) assignment", I have put PetePatrick (Science Ofcr) and Rob (1st Ofcr) in command. You heed them this evening as you would heed me. ;)

      And just "for fairness" and "full sharing disclosure" purposes. Micheal is The Special Envoy - who is sometime a better Host (type) than I. Thanks Michael - even though you are not here this evening either.

    UPDATE: Since I couldn't get in to see a doc at my facility, I went to Urgent Care. "Survey says" I have pink eye, an upper respiratory infection, and allerigies. Really?! Ee-gaads. "Fearless Leader" down!

    I just called off work for this day, Tuesday. I fear that the cold I "held at bay all weekend long" via Mucinex and Sudafed may have turned into bronchitis. Ill keep y'all informed.

    What game are we playing tonight? It'd be nice to read the rules in advance...

    June 5, 2013

    • Ed M.

      So I would just like to find out what games that other people will bring which will probably have an open seat and I would try to read the rules on boardgamegeek if I could.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
