Battlestar Galactica - IT IS HAPPENING PEOPLE

Looks like Imad is making this happen this weekend.  He's fitting a limited number of people so I will be cutting down the RSVP numbers soon.  Speak up if you can't make it.  I will not be able to.

**********************************************

Apologies for the short notice, but I feel that this is my best shot at hosting a session in the near future.

The building is literally across the street from the Huntington (north) side of Huntington Metro (yellow line). While my apartment is fairly small, I will attempt to book the party room for this event. Regardless, we're going to max out at two games.

I only have the base BSG game and only one copy at that. If you have a copy with expansions, please bring it along. I do have other "epically long" board games, such as Game of Thrones 2e, Mansions of Madness, etc., but I'd like to keep this focused on Battlestar Galactica (with perhaps a game or two of Resistance as filler if necessary).

BSG plays best with five players. Six is okay as well. I'd like to limit the sign-up list to twelve people accordingly (two games), and would prefer players who have some familiarity with the game (or at least with other hidden traitor games). If we wind up with between 7 and 9 players, well, we'll figure something out then.

    Pretty cool. We had a great game of BSG, and several of Resistance.

    For those keeping score at home, David and Phil had a magnificent turn-about Cylon victory in BSG. We also had time for three games of The Resistance (two with Merlin/Assassin), which went spies (?), spies (Ana and David), resistance (Ana, David, Matt and me). (Feel free to correct any mistakes I may have made). I'd like to try to host an Epically Long Boardgames session one Saturday per month, perhaps with a BSG emphasis.

      Great! I'll make sure you're set as an organizer. I would love to join sometime. Glad everything worked out.

      April 13, 2013

    • Regina

      congrats guys. The Resistance looks like fun too. I just watched some vids on it two days ago.

      April 13, 2013

  • Imad

    I'm perhaps biased, but I'm very happy with the way everything turned out. I had a lot of fun playing with Andrew and Matt again, as well as with Ana, David and Phil, who I had the pleasure of meeting for the first time. The venue seemed to work well, and I think we could have had two games going if we'd had more players.

      I just wanted to concur. I had a ton of fun! It was great playing and meeting everyone. Super thanks to Imad for hosting!!

    How did this go?

    April 13, 2013

  • Kristopher M.

    Won't be able to make it there before 11:30 so I'll have to drop. Sorry guys.

    April 13, 2013

    • Imad

      I doubt we'll actually start until then. Feel free to join if you'd like.

      April 13, 2013

  • Kristopher M.

    Dang. Thought my clock said 10am right no.

    April 13, 2013

  • Jay

    I'll drop too. Have fun, everyone!

    April 13, 2013

  • Regina

    will drop off to let you get to 1 table

    April 13, 2013

    • Rhett

      Seriously Regina unless you have had a change of plans otherwise there is no need to drop.

      April 13, 2013

    • Jay

      Actually, never mind -- it's not looking likely for me getting there on time either.

      April 13, 2013

  • Imad

    Metro parking is free on weekends and closer than our building's visitor parking (at least on the Huntington Ave side). I highly recommend taking the Metro or parking at the metro station. See y'all tomorrow!

    April 12, 2013

    • Imad

      The building has controlled access both to the entrance and the 7th floor party room. I'll try to be downstairs by the Huntington Ave entrance as much as possible, but you can call me at[masked] as necessary.

      April 12, 2013

    • Imad

      I've got a case of Mountain Dew and a few snacks. If you'd like to bring along additional food to share, feel free. We can order pizza or whatnot during the session if so desired as well.

      April 12, 2013

  • Jay

    Got any parking suggestions (other than "take the Metro," please!)? Thanks! :)

    April 12, 2013

    • Rhett

      Jay, as you may see above, Metro parking is super free on the weekends.

      April 12, 2013

  • Rhett

    So I called the building and Imad should have 5 day passes for parking around his complex. I don't know of other free parking solutions in that area (Imad?). I know the metro parking is very close and available but it isn't free.

    April 12, 2013

    • Lisa Z.

      On weekends, metro parking should be free.

      April 12, 2013

    • Rhett

      Lisa brings the knowledge. Let me disseminate this info.

      April 12, 2013

  • Ana

    I can bring a copy of bsg.

    April 12, 2013

  • Jay

    I shall be there! I've got a raggedy copy of the base game and both expansions. (And for the record, I can't stand New Caprica, but everything else is fine.)

  • Abdul Hadi Sid A.

    Family event, the good kind, has come up so I won't be able to attend.

    April 11, 2013

  • Andrew Y.

    Hmmm, that's odd... I'm still getting emails, but MU has been stating that account's been bouncing. This would explain why I didn't get a notification. At any rate, here to confirm that I will be able to make it, and will be bringing in my copy of the game with expansions.

    Can't make it this weekend, hope there is another one soon.

    1 · April 10, 2013

  • Matthew

    I intend to show up at Imad's on Saturday.

    1 · April 10, 2013

  • Lisa Z.

    sorry have another engagement on Saturday : (. Hope there will be another one soon!

  • Imad

    I can host this Saturday, April 13, and have created a corresponding event: http://www.meetup.com/Epically-Long-Board-Games-in-Arlington-Alexandria/events/113668382/

    April 10, 2013

    • Imad

      Okie doke. I just hope the attendees adjust their RSVPs appropriately.

      April 10, 2013

    • Rhett

      I'm emailing them now.

      April 10, 2013

  • Regina

    will confirm when time/loc details are determined

    March 17, 2013

  • Rhett

    I'm looking into using an Arlington library but it's going to take me a while to get it all sorted. If you guys come upon someone willing to host before then please do.

    March 13, 2013

    • Andrew Y.

      Worst comes to worst, I suppose we can always use the fallback venue of Mott Community Center, Sat. 3pm to 9pm. I'd prefer not to make it a top choice simply b/c Fairfax may be a bit too far out for some. FWIW, traffic will be a minimal issue on Saturdays.

      March 13, 2013

  • Rhett

    Andrew, want to get a location and date set on this thing? Pretty sure 14 is enough for almost 3 full games or 2 with exp.

    March 11, 2013

    • Rhett

      Matt, Andrew, whoever organized this, but both of you have full w/ expansions.

      March 11, 2013

    • Andrew Y.

      Unfortunately, I still don't have a location in mind. Honestly, I was sorta hoping someone else would have something in mind.

      March 12, 2013

  • Imad

    I don't think I have a spare weekend in March, but I'm pretty sure I could host in April, either at my apartment itself or in our party room (I'm literally across the street from Huntington Metro).

    Alternatively, if we could get five BSG-interested players to show up at the right time, the Arlington Alexandria Regional Gaming Group is having their big monthly meetup on Saturday the 16th at Arlington Central Library.

      If considering that, someone should post in the comments section to drum up interest, as it helps to make others aware. However, as with any game, especially a long one like BSG, there's never any gaurantee we'll be able to do it.

      March 4, 2013

    • Lisa Z.

      Doesn't the event run from 10-4? I'm not completely sure because the hours aren't listed, but 6 hours seems to be enough time, no? I'll mention something in the comments.

      March 4, 2013

  • Jeremy

    I have the base game that I can bring
