Boardgames meetup (Monday edition)

Everybody
who attends is expected to
buy at least one food or drink item
please!

 

Looks like Kafka's is the venue of choice for the moment. The owners are very accommodating in reserving tables for us and staying open an hour later. Please be supportive and buy something while we are there!

Please post in comments, below, to arrange for games you'll bring or games you want to play.
Also, please arrange for carpooling if needed.

In order to maintain our good relationship with Kafka's, we ask members attending weekly Monday night board games to purchase at least one drink or food item during the course of the evening. If none of the food or drink choices appeal to you then consider tipping a dollar or two in the tip jar by the cashier register instead.

 

Additionally, please remember that Kafka's does close at 10:00pm. So please plan your time so that you will have finished putting your games away by 10:00pm and will be ready to leave. Remember the staff at Kafka's are mostly students and they're already staying an extra hour to accommodate us. Every minute longer that we stay is a minute of studying or sleep time that they will be losing.

 

Kafka's has a few other requests from our member that I would like to put here as well:

  • Please do not leave games and/or articles of clothing at unoccupied tables or unused chairs. We don't want to discourage regular customers from coming in and sitting down because all the chairs that aren't being used have jackets hanging on them.
  • Please do not use the two larger tables closest to the entrance. Aaron the owners of Kafka's wants regular customers to be able to walk by and see open spots so that they are more likely to come in and order something. Walking by and only seeing a large noisy group playing board games can be intimidating and scare away a lot of business.

Thanks!

The Wait List

Due to the high popularity of this event there is often a long waiting list to get in. The wait list however is only in effect between 6pm and 7:30pm as this is when Kafka's is the busiest. After 7:30pm any member whether they are on the waiting list or not is welcome to show up and play games with us for the remainder of the evening.

We also usually go out for food at the nearby Congee Noodle House at 10:00pm for the 'after party' if you're interested.

Donations

In order to purchase more games for the group we will occasionally ask members casually for a small donation ($1 or $2 or whatever you're willing to donate) towards buying new and awesome board games for this group. Please feel free to donate or not, it's not mandatory but would be nice to have your support.

      You're close enough that you will make it off the waitlist. If not, just come at 730.

      So sorry about that Marie. That was the first time this has happened. There are almost always plenty of spots for people after 7:30.

    It was my first time attending board game night. I was never really a fan of board games but I just had to come and check it out since this event is always full. It was so interesting seeing all these different games. At first I didn't feel like playing because I was feeling overwhelmed since I never played any of the games before. Everyone was really nice and it was really fun!

      We cannot eat or drink anything that we don't buy at Kafka's. So, no one should eat any food or drink anything while inside Kafka's.

      We enforce this rule to respect the venue (Kafka's) ..and because we'll get kicked out if they catch us eating and drinking stuff we haven't bought there.

    I have Cards Against Humanity, Apples to Apples or Carcassonne if anyone wants me to bring one (only one since I won't be driving tomorrow night)

    July 7, 2013

    • Kevin

      We can use my custom cards against humanity so you may leave yours at home and bring something else if you are only bringing one game

    If you have any spare change (I feel like Oliver.lol)
    A Donation jar and ballot 'box' might be available for the 'Get more Games as a Group Fund' right Marc? ;) We deserve to buy ourselves a cool new game once in a while! A ballot will be given away with each donation (no more than one vote per person per event pls). Write down what you would like the group to buy and when it's counted we buy the game with the most votes and then start over again each month or two. (In december we can buy games for the hospital or shelters or somewhere?)

    ...or I'm going to get swatted in the head, this post will disappear and I should consider wearing running shoes tonight.lol

  • Kevin

    If I come, I will bring my custom Cards Against Humanity. I had to neuter it a bit to take it down a notch, but it's still every bit as dirty and distasteful as the original game!
