Schlow Saturday: Public Boardgaming Meetup Mark VIII (All Ages)

Greetings,

This will be the eigth of our monthly public meetups in the interest of:

• Allowing members to meet one another before committing to meetups at private residences

• Allowing for "all ages" events to happen on a regular basis for those who may not want to game when there's alcohol, adult table talk, or adult-themed games present

• Allowing us to demo games in a public setting and, perhaps, promote the group publicly to draw more membership

We have both rooms which will hold ~50 people and the library provides tables, chairs, and a small kitchenette to prepare light snacks. All you will need to bring is yourself, any game you want to play, people you feel would enjoy open gaming, and a pleasant and open attitude.

As with the last event, I'll open a discussion thread where people can post games they'd be interested in playing or GM'ing and members can 'sign up' for a slot at the table if they desire. Otherwise, we'll leave it to an 'open table' format where it's first-come-first-serve for table space and people can pick up and play games as they are available and choose.

What is meant by "All Ages"?

"All Ages," in this context, implies that:

1. There will not be alcohol or other age-restricted items present (obvious in this case given the venue)

2. Adult language and 'trash talking' will be kept to a PG-13 level or below

3. Adult-themed games will not be allowed (think 'Cards Against Humanity')

4. 'Your mom' jokes are still welcome and will be appropriately snickered at

(If anyone has anything to add to this list, please state as much in the comments)

    Hey, all! I was hoping to find four people interested in playtesting my game. I've already played it a bunch with people I know and was hoping to get some outside opinions on the rulebook before I put it on Kickstarter. It's a post-apocalyptic storytelling press-your-luck style game :)
    If not, of course, I'm up for other games as well.
    Hope to see you all there and have a great time!

    If it goes from 11 to 4 and there's just "light snacks" what about lunch? I could get some downtown but I'd miss some of the gaming.

      People generally partake of the snacks early on and then, between games, run to grab lunch (or have it delivered) as they need and then start their second game after eating. The only note is that if anyone has food delivered to please direct them to the Community A/B room to the right of the service desk versus having delivery folks bothering patrons or the library employees.

    Eat before, after, or bring something :) Does anyone have any game- requests this time around?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
