Game Night

A casual first game night. For this game night we will meet at Wegmans on Alberta Drive in Amherst in the Cafe on the second floor. Future game nights I organize will have rotating places, themes, types of games (board, card, party, video, etc).

I'll be bringing a few games for this game night. Blokus, a light strategy game, a co-op game called Forbidden Island and a group bluff game of Werewolves. And if Glenn comes and wants to share the awkwardly funny Cards Against Humanity we can have a game session of that. Also, if you want to bring and share an easy to learn game, let me know or post about it below.

As long as we don't get rowdy or have loud games and buy a drink and/or snack Wegmans market cafe is fine with us being there.

    Thanks to everyone the stopped by and shared the laughs. It was fun to have a game night and an excuse to meet some new people. I made some calls and I may have something a little different coming up for a future game night, based on what seemed to work and not work last night. I'm sure we'll be doing different game nights, different themes, different locations, etc. And maybe even Blokus 3-D :)

    Game nights are always fun. Worst part is ending them! Great seeing new people and hanging out with those I met before. Time to take a shower cause I feel dirty playing Cards Against Humanity!

    Brooklyn in da house!

      "Dirty" may be your milieu - you were rockin' the Cards Against Humanity. Also, "Go Sheephead!" :-)

    It was wonderful to see everyone last night! I always hate to see nights like that end, and can't wait for the next one. =)

    I enjoyed meeting everyone and learning a couple new games. I look forward to the next meet-up.

    Looks like we can't make it tonight. The wife's workload is a little crazy today. We'll definitely be there next time.

    So sorry we missed it. I just started freelancing full-time last week, and in the rush of picking up new clients, I got totally waterlogged. (Too much work is a good thing, right?) Hope to see everyone next time!

    Marie and I are here upstairs kinda dead center in the seating area. :)

    I'm really looking forward to tonight! I love games, and most of these are new to me since i typically stick with old timey games like backgammon, card games and scrabble ;)

    1 · May 28, 2013

    • Gina

      Yeah someone else plays backgammon :)

      You need a hoop to go with that stick. Otherwise it wont be up to Little House on the Prairie standards

    I can bring in my Cthulhu dice. It's a variant of take and put, as far as I can tell. The rules are few and simple.

  • Andrew N.

    I will probably lean towards cards against humanity, but I can also bring catan and other light but slightly longer games if someone wants to try them.

  • Ryan G.

    I can do it this Tuesday, but I'm usually not free on Tuesdays. Any other night of the week would be better for me.

      I'll try to bring a couple versions of it as well.

      May 28, 2013

  • Alberto V.

    maybe

  • Steve G

    Damn - I'm going to be out of town... And I really wanted to try these games out. Count me in for the next incarnation though!

    How often are you guys looking to have game nights (no pressure intended obviously - I'm just annoyed at my poor scheduling decisions)?

    May 20, 2013

    • Steve G

      I am rather disappointed myself...

      May 22, 2013

    • Timothy S.

      There will be another game type game evening event. Approximately once a month. We'll try to work out the kinks at this first one and you'll be all ready for the next.

    I am saying yes however I need to check with my husband to make sure there is no schedule conflict. Would love to see what cards against humanity is all about!

    :( Frowny face! Tuesdays are never good for me. I zumba that night. If anyone is ever interested it's right across from Forest Lawn and is only $5. Best zumba class around!!

  • Kelly G.

    Ryan may be in if he can rearrange band practice; I'm definitely in. We have Cards Against Humanity, too, which I can bring as a backup (or an addition as we have several expansion packs--Glenn, do you have any of the expansions?)

    • Meredith

      That happened to me last night. Nobody remembers a thing.

      May 20, 2013

    • Gina

      I'm going to have to go w/no to the blank cards! How could you possibly top the pre-printed cards?!? Wait!! Don't answer that!! :)

      1 · May 21, 2013

  • Glenn S.

    Yep, Kelly, I have ALL the expansions. >:)

    • Kelly G.

      All I can say is, once I learned you people were into CoA, I knew we'd found the right group to hang out with. :D

      2 · May 20, 2013

    • Glenn S.

      Actually, I do have blank cards, Tim.

      1 · May 20, 2013

  • Effie (Stephanie) M.

    I'm a maybe, since Tuesdays can be difficult for me, but I think i can work this out.

    Woot! Can't wait!
