Game Night

The game night venues will rotate to different places and areas around Buffalo. This game night is at the Grand Island library. It has a large meeting area and many tables. It is set apart from the main library area and we can close the doors so we can talk and laugh similar to say if we were at Panera's or when we were at Wegmans. Just nothing over the top. It will start at 6:30 and end at 8:45.

The added benefit is that we have room to spread out and can bring refreshments. With that said, I will be bringing some snacks, listed below. If anyone else wanted to bring basic snacks feel free to message me or post below. You can also bring your own non-alcoholic drinks.

For this game night I will bring either Blokus (along with 3-D Blokus), because many did not get the chance to play at the last game night, or Qwirkle. Qwirkle is a light strategy game a bit like a visual scrabble game. I'll setup a survey to vote. This will also be open for people that come to the game night to bring a game to share and teach. Just post below in the comments which game you will be bringing ahead of time. We can then talk about which ones to play at this game night.

I will raffle off a copy of either Blokus or Qwirkle. Whichever game is decided I bring to this game night.

Refreshments:

- a couple bags of Doritos
- some cookies
- one 2 liter bottle each of pepsi, sierra mist, lemonade and some water

Vote for the game I'll bring here:

---------------

They will probably be working on the bridge that evening, starting around 7:30, so the entrance to the 190 closest to the bridge will be closed so simply follow the basic directions below from the library to the 190 to head back toward Buffalo. They will also have detour signs.

1. Head west (take a right out of the library lot) on Bedell Rd toward Baseline Rd - 0.5 mi

2. Take the 2nd left onto Baseline Rd - 1.0 mi

3. Turn right onto Whitehaven Rd - 0.5 mi

4. Turn left to merge onto I-190 S toward Buffalo

      Well, we won't see a zombie rocking a tiara because it will have been pried from your zombie hands, remember? I can see the infection is working it's way to your brain. :-)

      fate simply wanted you to have a copy to practice with so you can challenge Andrea.

      My very favorite episode of the Big Bang Theory had to do with a tiara! Glad you get to keep it, Andrea!!

    Fun time all around

    This was another excellent outing- fun games and great company. Cards Against Humanity is too funny (scrotal frostbite anyone?). Thanks to everyone who brought snacks - especially whoever made those chocolate chip cookies; they rocked

    June 25, 2013

    • Timothy S.

      I have a pic of the snack table... people missed out on some quality snacks people brought. I brought the chocolate chip cookies in the tupperware container. Glad you liked them. They are addictive. Maybe next time I can make some brownies.

  • Timothy S.

    Thanks everyone that made the trek over the river and through the grand island woods. We played some blokus and then the ole' cards against humanity stand by and some expansion packs and ended with some zombie dice, where brains were good and shotguns were bad.

    Had a ton of fun. Was great to meet everyone there!

    June 25, 2013

    • Timothy S.

      Nice to meet you as well. And thanks for the snacks. Especially the lemon cookies, I had not had them in years. Though cookies are my kryptonite.

      June 25, 2013

  • Andrea

    Hope you had/are having fun!! I just got home, and wish i was playing blokus right now!

    June 25, 2013

    • Timothy S.

      Thanks... it was a nice time... lots of snacks... I'll get a couple pics up tomorrow. Everyone was new to Blokus so they had a chance to learn so they will be good competition for the queen of blokus next time :)

      1 · June 25, 2013

  • Timothy S.

    So based on the votes, I will be bringing Blokus and 3D Blokus. I have the drinks and snacks all ready to bring and look forward to seeing people there at 6:30.

      Brains, golden oreos... it's a rich tapestry

      Andrea, I think it's just called "The Zombocalypse" now.

    I don't know either game, but am always happy to learn a new game. Has anyone ever played Killer Bunnies?

    June 24, 2013

    • Alberto V.

      WHy do you all want to kill bunnies? :(

      June 25, 2013

    • Steve G

      Naw you're thinking of Bunny Killers - totally different game (and illegal in six states)

      June 25, 2013

  • Kevin S

    I won't be able to make it tonight :-( Looking forward to the next one!

    June 25, 2013

  • Andrea

    :(. Too much work, i just can't make it this week.

    June 24, 2013

    • Timothy S.

      The Blokus queen will be missed. Hopefully you can make the next game night in some "mysterious location" meaning I am not sure yet :)

    • Steve G

      Boo! BOO!!! Andrea - please tell your boss that I hate her :(

      1 · June 24, 2013

  • Gina

    Hey sorry I don't know if I can make it.

    June 24, 2013

    • Timothy S.

      Keep us posted. This may be your only chance to play blokus without Alberto there and cheating lol

      June 24, 2013

    • Alberto V.

      I am always there... like a shadow or Tuberculosis... always there...

    Games I can bring: Cthulhu Dice and Zombie Dice. Both are different mechanics. Cthulu Dice is not unlike take and put, except for the possibility that everyone goes insane when Cthulhu steals your sanity. Zombie Dice plays a bit like farkle, without all the complicated scoring. You get points for brains eaten as long as you don't get shotgunned. Both are by Steve Jackson Games.

    June 23, 2013

    • Timothy S.

      I'd vote for Zombie Dice. I saw people playing that at a con before and it looked fairly easy to learn and fun. And the zombie fan in me can't resist.

      June 24, 2013

  • Steve G

    I'm in for this. I've never played either game so I don't have a preference. Are there player limits to either Blokus or Qwirkle?

    June 12, 2013

    • Timothy S.

      Or they are not the blokus pieces you are looking for. He uses his mind tricks to place pieces that benefit him. But he does it in a way that you think you are making the choice. He's good like that.

    • Alberto V.

      I bend spoons with my mind... for good of course!

      June 23, 2013

  • Andrea

    I'm downgrading to maybe. I have a big presentation next week and wish it was more complete than it is right now :/

    Carpooling? Who could use a ride? I live in the Elmwood Village area.

    June 20, 2013

  • Effie (Stephanie) M.

    I'm out for this one

    June 17, 2013

    • Effie (Stephanie) M.

      I should amend this to .... unless someone can swing through the Sheridan area to pick me up, lol

      June 17, 2013

    • Leo

      I ought to be able to pick you up. And perhaps others who need a ride if your not all too spread out.

      June 19, 2013

  • Gina

    The Wegmans in Hamburg has a huge eat-in area. Would be perfect!!

    June 13, 2013

    • Timothy S.

      Thanks, I'll have to look there.

      June 19, 2013

  • Andrea

    Grand ISLAND?!?? I'm city folk lol.

    June 12, 2013

    • Steve G

      Don't let Andrea fool you with her directional confusion - it's just a facade to distract us during gameplay. You don't get to be Queen of Blokus without some kind of edge

      1 · June 13, 2013

    • Timothy S.

      We can ration out the doritos then. Or play a game of blokus for them. But if you are a queen of blokus then you'll have all the doritos. So if you are the queen of blokus, does that make alberto the trikster of blokus?
