Downtown/Little Italy Game Night!

  • Nov 16, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

I have games! So let's play!

  • 51st State (up to 4 players) - dystopic
  • Android (haven't gotten a chance to play it yet!) - also dystopic
  • Munchkin Deluxe (with The Guild expansion)
  • Aaaaand regular playing cards (just 1 deck)

I'm a fan of dystopic or strategy games. Feel free to bring more! Please list what you'd bring in the comments!

I gotta pick a night when my husband's at work, so weekends are a good bet! If enough people request it, alternative date suggestions will be considered!

Snacks/Setup:

6pm or 7pm start time. I love to cook, but potluck snacks and drinks would be appreciated! If someone can bring a few more folding chairs and another card table, we can get one more game going! If you can help with this, also please post in the comments!

I can fit about 10 in my home comfortably. I also have a table with fire pit in the yard for relaxing after games.

Two dogs live here. They are well-behaved, but I don't guarantee that it will be completely fur-free (I try), so please premedicate yourselves accordingly!

Directions:

Google isn't wrong! California St is that one-lane alley that runs along the train tracks between Pacific Highway and Kettner Blvd. The closest cross street is W Grape St. If you're turning onto W Grape from Pacific Hwy, turn before you cross the train tracks! I swear the road is there. You'll see some reflectors on white bars indicating the street.

1942 is the red gate with the bee on it:

The Beehive

Street parking is available on W Grape St and on California St both north and south of Grape. Meters are free after 6pm. Please do not park in my neighbours' spots. One spot will be available at 1942.

Give me a call if you have problems! My number is[masked]-6417. Looking forward to seeing you all!

    I enjoyed learning a new game and getting to know folks! Thanks for hosting, Elizabeth. :)

    'Twas fun! But, of course, I'm a little biased!

    Hi, ladies! I'm cleaning and prepping for tonight! I'll have some snacks (making some pizza bread with an Italian loaf and maybe stuffing some mushrooms), but not a full meal, so please either bring something to share or eat a bit beforehand!

    Also, this household has coffee, tea, and water. I can make iced tea. If you prefer something else, please bring it!

    I don't drink soda. I think one of my friends left parts of a litre of coke and Dr Pepper here the other day, but they may be flat.

    Thanks, and see you soon!

    Ugh, ladies I am sorry. I woke up with a huge headache so won't be joining you. I don't want to be a crabcake. You guys have fun and I'll see you next time around!

    I'm planning to bring:
    *Red Dragon Inn (1, 2 & 3) - up to 16 players
    *The Resistance - up to 10 players
    *Quarriors - up to 4 players

    Possibly others if they catch my eye on my way out.

      PERFECT! I had Resistance - never played it, but now I can't find it!

      Once Upon A Time might be appropriate since it's NaNoWriMo. Race for the Galexy is really fun. I've never played Killer Bunnies, but I've heard good things about it.

    I'll need to get there a little late but you should see me by 7pm!

    Yay, I'm so glad a spot opened up!!! I'll be there, although I'm not sure what time because I have to stay at work until my boss leaves. Fingers crossed for 7:30 at the latest!
