Oops... just realized I haven't made this meetup official yet. It's posted now. Should I bother with posting a "showcase game anymore? I've gotten zero feedback on that since I've been doing it. Does it matter? Or would yall prefer to simply play it by ear the night of the meetup? For what its worth, I'm kinda in the mood for some Descent :-)
I've been struggling with how to approach the subject of this group pulling its own weight at the church meetup location. That is, we're using rented space and need to contribute something. I've settled on the fairest solution I could come up with without requiring membership fees universally for this meetup group, which I won't do. What I'm going to do is post meetups at two locations, at the rented space, and the other at some free location (i.e. Panera, Coliseum of Comics, etc.). The free location meetups will be open to anyone in the meetup while the rented location meetups will be open to folks who join the LRPG membership. I hate to put a price tag on a night of board games but I don't see any other options to cover the expenses, especially since the RPGers there are ponying up. The LRPG dues are 20 bucks a year which is about 0.75 cents a night. So new guests don't have to stress this, they are free to play for the first few game nights.
So, this might be the last meetup I'll post in a while until I line up another place. If anyone has suggestions, comments, ideas... please let me know.
