Boardgames meetup (Monday edition @ Toby's)

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

If you purchase something, PLEASE PAY BEFORE YOU LEAVE !

Welcome to the Toby's edition of Monday night board games! They're located extremely close to the Commercial skytrain station, and we've booked the whole second floor!

As usual, all members are expected to buy at least one food or drink item.

We would like to remind everybody that the purpose of this event is still to play board games, so please, if you're going to drink alcohol, drink responsibly. They have; coffee, tea, juice, pop, etc. ..and a full menu with half price appetizers (with the purchase of any drink) from 5pm-9pm, and the kitchen is open late until 10pm.

We've capped this event at 75 people instead of 30! 
That's- wait.. seven and five, carry the three.. that's 6 times as- no, wait.  Oh, that's more than twice as many people as in our previous venue!! 
More seats and extended playing hours (5-11pm)!  ~:0D

Bring your games and lets have a great time!

(Toby's is where the little toon turtle, Tommy, is hangin' out)

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.

    Had a nice time :) Thanks, hosts and organizers. Didn't get a chance to talk and mingle around too much --- was feeling a tad shy. Definitely planning to come out to more of these though :)

      Glad you had a great time, feel free to come back more often to play boardgames. If you feel like needing that extra tug in meeting new people, you may want to check out our speed socializing event next saturday night. We have icebreaker activities that will guarantee that you will meet at least half a dozen people.

    Had a good night but one thing I find is when someone is playing a game non players try to talk to them, which is distracting but if the player ignores them, the player feels bad. It's ok to say hi but wait till there done the game before starting a conversation with them. Hope I don't sound like an ass saying that.

    Probably won't make it tonight, I have some stuff to take care of.

    PRIZES PRIZES PRIZES ! ! !

    Today's Werewolf games will contain PRIZES (prizes may ..nay; *will* not be as spectacular as the capitalized word, 'PRIZES').

    If you are on the winning Werewolf team and get randomly picked, you win Prize #1. If you win again (which means, obviously, that you're cheating ..but no one cares), you'll bet a choice between..
    A.) keeping Prize #1 and the satisfaction of knowing you won twice
    B.) trading in Prize #1 for Prize #2

    Prize #1: a super cool butterfly- (or hot mini fairy-) catching net.
    Prize #2: an evening with our very own Ian, consisting of a scrumptious home-cooked meal followed by a performance from, yes, Ian(!) He will delight you with his impressive vocal chords as he sings you Opera in.. wait for it.. Klingon! You'll also receive a signed copy of his Private Memoirs (with full colour pull-out on how to sing Opera in Klingon).

    *Prize #2 may not actually exist (to your relief)

      If I won twice, I would definitely go for option B and trade in my net for a magical evening with Ian!

    Does anyone bring Game of Throne the Board Game?

    Please tell me if it's already played over there as I'll probably buy myself the game if not.

    September 2, 2013

    • Ian

      Hey L P . I own the game however I usually don't bring it as it is very long and not very beginner friendly. But if you would like to try and get a group going to play it then let me know and I'll bring it along.

      September 2, 2013

    • L-P

      Would be great ! I will be over for 1700
