Eastside Games with Friends 4yr Anniversary Party!

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 to all of those who atteneded our 4yr Anniversary Party. I learned a new games "Scrabble, The Gardem Variety" (or whatever it's _really_ called. I was super amazed at how well Pete kept track of points via chips - with absolutely no demnominations written upon them! :S I also played, Forbidden Desert aaaaand "dried up and died!" followed by two rounds of Battle Line played against James. I played two more against Laurie at Denny's! (that was awesomER) as well as a game of MOnster Factory.

    We had a good, albeit short, game of Forbidden Desert: we dried up and died, but before then managed to find one of the pieces of the flying machine. At Panera, five of us played a close game of Airlines Europe. While Brian and I were locked in an arms race for Air Abacus, Jim snuck past to win by one point.

      Si, thanks. I was happy to make it back home without too much trouble (or having to get towed), but the car kept stopping along the way, so it wasn't easy.
