Downtown gaming

Edit:  There is electronic locks on the outer doors and elevator of the building I live in, so I will need to let you in. When you reach the door, you can press 603 on the keypad to your left, and I can at least let you into the building.  If you need to contact me otherwise about location or whatnot, my number is[masked] 


After moving our meetup to The Basement last week, I think everyone had a great time! I know some people would still like something downtown (including myself), and since the Basement has board game nights thursdays, I'm thinking Wednesdays. There have been a couple suggestions on public location by other members (such as Lora offering a common area in her building), but since she mentioned she was unavailable this week, I'm willing to offer my apartment again, if people are interested. If theres enough demand, we could also meet at the Library or somewhere else public first (power and light?).

The start time says 7, but feel free to stop by as early as 6 if you want!

Same as before, feel free to bring any games you want to play!

My table can sit around 8 people, so we can get one large game or 2 small games going on, though I would probably need a couple more chairs.

    Just finished up a late night of gaming, with fun playing pandemic, Quoridor, Notre Dame, and Agricola! I'll be gone next week, so have fun with any gaming you may do.

    For those driving, some advice in terms of getting around the area:
    The road on 9th between Baltimore and Main is still blocked off, as is partway between Wyandotte and Central on 10th. Baltimore is also one way going north, so getting on there is best through 11th from Main, or on 12th from Broadway. In terms of parking, I believe on street parking is pretty much free outside of normal business hours and have not seen any tickets for those parked in the evenings (I know its free on the weekends, and can't find anywhere to confirm on timing for weeknights. Though in all fairness, I generally see people parked on the street with no time on the meter in the evenings). If you don't want to chance that, I suggest the Library garage. To reach the library garage if you cannot find street parking in the area, just go north on Baltimore until just after 10th, and the garage entrance is on your left. As stated in my comment below, its $2 for arriving after 5pm and leaving before 8am.

    Sounds great, I'll be there between 6 and 7 sometime, how is the parking situation around your place?

      Generally I can find parking on the street within a block or two (usually on Baltimore or Wyandotte), though if you are lazy there is the library garage on my block which charges $2 for coming in after 5pm and leave before 8am (thats $2 for the entire time, not per hour).

    I would love to come to this sometime! Great location! Unfortunately, I will be out of town this week. Are you planning on doing this weekly?

    January 12, 2014

    • Matthew

      I do plan on starting something weekly, though I will be traveling for work so I can't make next week.
