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 did indeed eventually make it to this playday at 8:15. All I felt like doing (after 6hrs in the car coming from DC and two hours of unpacking and hanging out at home "catching up with myself") by the time I got to Panera was relaxing and kibitzing. Once at Denny's it was my long awaited, by Jeff, and highly anticipated particiaption in a game of Chaos in the Old World. T'was a pretty fun game afterall. :)

    Many thanks to everyone for coming over. Since I was a co-host, I guess I have to do the lengthy write-up. It was an evening of playing games twice... (although there were many exceptions) from sheer memory, Ticket To Ride was played twice, 7 Wonders was played twice... No Thanks was played twice... Cribbage was played twice (the former had the 2 of diamonds cut three times in four hands, the later was played in 9:35.8)... Tsuro was played twice... and probably a couple others. I played Tsuro, then San Juan, then Ticket To Ride USA 1910, then two rounds of cribbage, before retiring for the night during the bonus round. Once again, thanks to all for coming, and we hope to see you all once again... or twice again... or a zillion times again. :)

      Patrick, you did a most excellent job at "bearing the brunt" of the duties as you just simply "took them on" & "took them to heart" *happy Jenn dance*

    Since I'm highly unlikely to be present at this evening's festivities, I have made it "all official and everything" that PetePatrick and Rob are the hosts de jour! ;) Y'all have fun now, ya heah? *silly giggles*

    I will not be able to attend this because I will be visiting my best friend in DC from 8/7-13. I don;t know when I'll be getting back into town.. And after about 6 hours of driving, I'll be "too pooped to play."
