Boardgames meetup (Monday edition @ Toby's)

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

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! So come out, meet some amazing people and play some cool games. You don't need to be a board game veteran. Most people who come are fairly new to the world of board gaming, so you won't be alone.

Things start rolling at about 5:00 although you're welcome to come any time after that. We're usually there until about 10:00.

Bring your games (or don't) and lets have a great time!

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

Frequently asked questions

Question: I don't get off work until 6:00 and won't be able to get there until about 7, is that ok?
Answer: Yes of course. Most people usually don't start arriving until about 6, and plenty of people don't arrive until after 7 as well.

Question: Do I have to bring my own games?
Answer: Nope! You should bring any games if you can, but there are usually enough other people who bring games that there are more than enough to go around.

Question: What type of games do you play?
Answer: Check out the link at the bottom of this page. But we play a pretty wide variety of games. Some short and simple, some long and complicated.

Question: Where is there nearby parking?
Answer: There is parking underground Toby's (free) and also street parking on the east side of 10th if you drive down a bit

    The game itself was a bit difficult, but it was playful to try to learn it with some others there as confused as I was. It did turn out to be fun which is surprising given it was all new people to me. I think the venue of the game made the social interactions easier. We had a common goal, or at least a common laugh.

    Umm... decided my study session today at UBC lacked refreshments... left campus and have already gone to Toby's to "improve productivity". Probably going to need someone to pick me up off the floor by 5pm.
