Boardgames meetup (Monday edition)

The "Monday recurring Boardgames" now have received good response.  We will host this event every Monday starting July 2nd.

Looks like Kafkas is the venue of choice for the moment. The owners are very accomodating 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 to arrange for games that you will bring or games you wish someone would bring. Also please arrange for carpooling if needed.

The following are suggestions from fellow members and will be tested and implemented as this event grows.

1) RSVPs starting Monday Sept 17, 2012 will be limited to RSVPing one week prior to the event day to prevent RSVPs going stale.

2) Mike Peredo or another designated member will be asking casually for a couple of dollar donations going towards buying boardgames for this group.  Please feel free to donate or not, it's not mandatory but would be nice to have your support.

3) We will email out RSVP reconfirmations and would kindly ask for confirmations 24 hrs prior to event or RSVP no 24 hrs in advance so that those in waitlist will have a chance to know and be prepare to show up once they become RSVP attending.  Those on waitlist please also kindly RSVP no 24 hrs in advance if your plans have changed too.

4) There may be other boardgame events throughout the week and most likely at different venues.  They will be on going test events until such time a regular event host is willing to take up that event.

    I just walked by kafikas since I was down town anways, and the place only looks like it has 5 seats available.. So many students with laptops. Not sure what it will look like by 6 though. But the cascades pub offered their back area for the group incase we don't get room at . They have lots of tables we may put together. But I'm not sure a pub is something the organizers would like to host at... It's just down the road on main if so.

      I'm across the street right now because there wasn't room over at Kafka's. I thought however we had reserved tables? I'll take a boo in 30 minutes again though and will wait out front if there's no room.

    Hi everyone, can you list what boardgames you will be bringing? Since we have a full RSVP, we need to make sure there are enough games to go around. Thanks

      Since someone else is already bringing Dirty Minds, I'll bring Dominion, Clue and Chrononauts.

    I would be willing to pick up the slack (the peeps that are on the waiting list) if they are willing to come out Richmond way, I do have 250 board games and lots of room, let me know I can the night up to co-inside with this games night so that no one is left out.

      January 7, 2013

    • Peter

      Yes and was just replying to it. Sorry if my message came across harsh, didn't mean to. But thanks for the alternatives.

    Happy New Year fellow boardgamers! Unfortunately I won't be able to go till 21st of the month, but glad to see so many new folks wanting to get a piece. Shane, is this Netrunner similar to the really old Netrunner CCG? If so, I'm hugely interested... bring it 2 weeks later! Also, since I won't be lugging my giant bag of games in, bring in your stuff people! I sometimes feel like I'm holding you guys back 8p.

    Till then, cheers!

    January 7, 2013

    • Shane L.

      Yes, this is a reboot/redesign of the old Netrunner CCG in LCG format by fantasy flight last year. Unfortunately I failed to get a starter set because it was sold out everywhere, so it will be a bit difficult to attract people to learn it with my more complicated custom decks.

    Hey Ian, nice new photo.

    I'm on the waiting list, but if there's room, I can bring the following games: Chrononauts (time travel card game, takes up as much space as a board game), Dirty Minds (board game), Clue (two versions, both board games), and Dominion.

    January 6, 2013

    • Peter

      Hi Bonny, I'm getting people to update their RSVP. Hopefully there would be some openings coming up. Usually I would increase the RSVP limit by another 5 spots or so but 12 in the waiting list would be too much people for Kafka's to handle.
