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

    I learnt how to play Dutch Blitz this time but I'll definitely need to hone my skills next week! And those personal appy nachos just seem to get bigger and bigger each time I order them. Mmm!

    By the bye, if anyone's interested in game apps as well -- specifically, in playing Words with Friends or Draw Something 2, let me know! I'm interested in serious players (and no using anagram solvers with WwF, and no letter or number clues with DS2).

    'Ultimate Werewolf Showdown, Ian vs Marc'!

    Winner takes all*
    *all = bragging rights

    How it works:
    Ian moderates night'n'day, I moderate night'n'day..

    After the game, all players write 'Ian' or 'Marc' on a piece of paper (and their name), we draw, Ian or I win, then 3 people who've chosen ME (to hopefully secure my victory) win one of 3 Totoro prizes (supplied by me).

    Agreed to another event because I wasn't sure I'd get off the wait list. Will sneak out early. Werewolf an earlier or later in the evening thing? :)

      When there is only a couple of people on the wait list they are accepted, as Toby's can fit many people and we always have some no show or last minutes cancellations.

    Damn... Sorry to jam out at the last minute, but I've been detained unexpectedly at work. :(

    I'll try to get there for at least a bit, later in the evening, but that'll depend on how long it takes to get things wrapped up here. Bleh. Work.
