Game Day Geektitude

Get your geek on! Bring any game(s) you'd like to play. Here's some of what we've got at the house:

Cards Against Humanity; Fluxx (many variants); The Resistance; Gloom and Cthulhu Gloom; Zombies (plus many supplements); Cthulhu Dice; Munchkin; Munchkin Cthulhu; Wiz War; Saboteur; Triominos; Armchair Cricket; Set; Rack-O; Bang!; We Didn't Playtest This at All/Either; Get Bit; Crappy Birthday; Settlers of Catan; Teams of Enemies; Apples to Apples; Trivial Pursuit (plus a couple of add-ons); Cribbage; Events, Feudal, Twixt, and 221B Baker Street, all of which are Avalon Hill games: In Pursuit; Finish Lines; and many, many decks of playing cards. We've also got an XBox/Kinect and a Wii, if people want to play those. We might pick up a copy of Lords of Waterdeep before game day, which if you have not played, YOU MUST.

TL;DR: We've got a wide tolerance for games for grownups (see Cards Against Humanity).

We'll provide food and beverages, but feel free to bring something if you have special dietary requirements, really like a particular adult beverage (beer, wine, whatever), etc. Last game day went until almost midnight, so bring your 5-Hour Energy six pack. Also, for those with allergy issues, please note that we've got three friendly dogs onsite who already love you but who do shed a bit.

For those planning to bring a bag of chips and a jar of salsa: Please bring something else! After one game day, we had a 9 cubic foot box filled with unopened bags of tortilla chips.

Come early, stay late, just hang out and socialize. It's all geek.

    Hi, all-- if you inadvertently took home the wrong women's jacket, please email me here ASAP. Thanks!

      Update on this--we found the jacket here at the house. All is well!

    We are unable to make it this time as some things came up at the last minute. Hopefully, we will be able to come next time.

    Hey - I am new, and mentioned that I was attending this event to a friend yesterday and he expressed interest. Would it be all right to bring him along? If not, that's cool too. Thanks! :)

    I'll be showing up around 1ish. Playing disc golf in the morning. I'll be bringing Zombicide with hopes of corrupting more people like myself.

    Any fans of the Battlestar Galactica board game here? I love the game and would be happy to bring my copy if people want to play, but it's not particularly beginner-friendly.
