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.

    I had a great time playing Monster Factory (silly and full of shenanigans, and new to me) Takenoko (which is always very Iiiiii to me), and Can't Stop! At Denny's, I basically just hung out and had some good discussions with Jaimee, Nic, and Scott Z (in particular) - informative, relaxing... For now, we're wondering about other "satellite" gaming evenings/days/places...

    We had somewhere like a _dozen!_ "newbies" in attandence tonight - WOW! I would like to send a warm welcome out to the _dozen_ or so people that came out to play with us for the first time (some "ishly") - Rick, Michael Merth (bonus points for wearing a Dr. Who shirt!!), Casey, Hana, Tiara, Brie, and many more! (Please forgive me, I'm just horrific at remembering names - especially 3 (very busy) days later ;P

    Many thanks to all who attended last night. It was great to see a couple come from BOGA as well. :) I only wound up playing one game: Ora Et Labora... but that's always a fun game to keep your brain going, IMO. :) Good times!
