(Reno's Restaurant -marked 'B'- on Google Maps!)

(the 'X' marks Kafka's, where we are NOT going to be)

(the check mark is where we'll be: Reno's Restaurant)

Reno's is on the corner of Main street and E Broadway, about 1 minute's walk from Kafka's.

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.


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.


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.

      It wasn't your fault - You WILL NOT get a 'now show'.
      We were forced to change the venue at the last minute.

    Not 100% sure that this event will go ahead, as it will depend on what Aaron has to say, knowing that next week would be the last week at Kafka's. Also I will not be attending this event. Uhh... Josh, you're in charge!

      Alright, but I'm also bowling and might be late. As well, I run a tight ship. There will be no poking allowed. Also, turtles must submit to a pat down.

      ya; pocking! That way it's still allowed. ~;0P

    after the mouse encounter, it would be rather awkward. but we have Renos as back up site

    July 30, 2013

    • Ed

      if we cannot go to kafkas, i can talk to laura from renos to save us the private room (good for 32 people) and if its not busy in the main room we can spill over for other games
