FallCon presents: Open Gaming at the Sentry Box

This is the usual Monday night board gaming. Feel free to bring whatever games you like and if you want to request I bring any of mine just post a comment. Suggesting games ahead of time is a good way to make sure you get in on something and don't have to wait around for too long.

INFORMATION FOR NEW ATTENDEES:

Firstly, welcome :-) Secondly, here is some information on what to expect at this meetup:

1) The official start time for this meetup is 6.30pm. That's because I, as the host, am working until the store closes at 6pm and so I'm unable to get upstairs and fulfill my hostly duties until that time. Having said that, some people arrive earlier and start playing. This is perfectly fine. Some people arrive later than 6.30pm, sometimes much later. This is also fine. Please note the end time of 10.30pm - I have a wife that I like to see before she goes to bed, so please try to ensure you are finishing as close to 10.30pm as possible :-)

2) The store does close at 6pm. The front door gets locked and the gate to downstairs gets closed. The tills are all cashed out and I am unable to make any sales. If you'd like drinks and snacks you'll need to bring them with you or purchase them before the store closes. If you arrive after 6pm you will need to enter via the back door, as per the information under the address above.

3) The board gaming takes place mostly on the lower section of the mezzanine. The upper mezzanine and back room are booked by other groups, but sometimes we can expand into their space slightly if it gets busy. Tables and chairs are stacked throughout the mezzanine and back room area. Feel free to get out a table and set it up to start playing.

4) Feel free to bring specific games that you would like to play. I can't guarantee you'll convince people to play them but if you don't bring them and ask then you'll never know. Most people are willing to let others borrow their copies of games if they are asked. Treat them nicely. Likewise we have a lot of store demo copies that can be borrowed for the evening. Just ask me or one of the other staff if it's before closing time.

5) You may not get into a game right away. Sometimes you show up just after everyone has started playing. A good way to avoid this is by pre-arranging what you are going to play via the comments section below. Otherwise you can wait and hopefully some other people will show up, or a game or two may finish. Sadly it does happen that you occasionally will have to wait for a little while to get in a game.

6) Easier said than done: Don't be shy. If you arrive and stand in the corner not saying anything you are less likely to get into a game. Hopefully I or one of the other more friendly people will come and talk to you and try to get you into a game, but sometimes we are distracted, in a game or otherwise engaged. Most people at the game nights are friendly enough and if you come and talk to them and ask what they are playing or whether you can get into a game they won't bite.

7) Have fun! I think that's the point, right?

If any of you ever have any questions please don't hesitate to ask me, either by commenting below, sending me a message, phoning the store, etc.

    Masses of goblin archer corpses and zombie bits exploded and chopped up left the overlord powerless in our game of "Let's go down the stairs". But it was fun thanks for coming out!

    Newish to gaming, got into during university but didn't start buying games till recently. My friends in Edmonton really got me into it and when I moved back to Calgary none of my friends wanted to play games with me. So thought I'd come check this out. I'm always up for playing something new and meeting new people. I could bring King of Tokyo, Jamaica, and Ticket to Rider Europe, if that interests any of you

    anybody played Löwenherz before? I understand Domaine is the evolution of this game, so it should be similar. If anyone knows how to play this game or has a Domaine. Could arrange a session of this game? thnks

      I'd be interested.

      November 4, 2013

    • Brendan

      Not that I'll attempt to scuttle the game that's forming, but I'll just remark for "later" that I'm usually up for head-to-head games of Carc. :-)

    If anyone is interested in teaching Hannibal or Stronghold I'd be up for that. Otherwise probably In The Year of The Dragon or Ra I'll bring.

      I know Stronghold pretty well. I'll show up and see what's open and available. I'm pretty much open to anything.

      November 4, 2013

    • jgbaxter

      If you bring Stronghold I'm sure that would be awesome. :)

    I'm definitely bringing The Palaces of Carrara and might possibly have room for one or two people (I know Justin wants in). Other than that I might actually try to get a game of Space Hulk in with Joe.

    • Curt

      I'll jump in. Looks interesting. Worth a try.
