FPG Sunday Afternoon Meetup - Myriad Games on Staten Island - 8/25

Hey gang. It's our annual pilgrimage to Staten Island to join Cheri and her Staten Island Boardgames Meetup Group. They start gaming at 12 noon. I plan to be there around 2 pm or so. Cheri was nice enough to join us recently in the city, so I think it's only fair that we return the favor. If you can make it, sign up and join. There will be party and trivia games, plus Cheri and her gang will have games for us to play.

I will post what bus to take from the SI Ferry terminal soon. The place is at 1650 Richmond Avenue on Staten Island.

The next FPG meetup after this will be in September, and yes, it will be in Manhattan.

    A good time. I played Faces and Ticket to Ride. The X 10 express bus takes about an hour from midtown Manhattan to the game store. The next meetup will be in September in Manhattan.

    First of all a super commute to the place in Staten Island with that Express Bus right from Manhattan with comfortable ride, commute timing & seating & right to the destination. While there first played Ticket to ride & came in third place out of 4 with 66 points. Made 3 of my 4 destinations but got blocked in all directions so only lost 17 points. Plus had a ton of Rainbow Cards left in hand before one player was down to one car. After that played Love Letters then the Faces Game & got 5 points & after that 2 games of Uno then played No Thanks where I won 15 points using the strategy of taking high cards to get tons of Chips & had two big sequences. Game was like Golf of low score winning & sequences were sort of like Pars. Enjoyed it so much that I will be back there in the future with the Staten Island Boardgamers.

    For those taking the ferry, buses 44 and 62 stop about a block fron the place and it's about a 45 minute ride. I'm taking an express bus, the X10, that leaves from 32 Street & 5th Avenue in Manhattan. You can call the MTA at 511 for more info or look it up on www.mta.info

      Ed, the store opens up at 10 am. If you get there before the store opens, just wait in the McDonalds (or the Dunkin Donuts).

    Change of plans Just bringing the Fluxx Family & Back to the Future Card Game.

    • Cheri

      not too many folks like the Fluxx Family game in my group. we find it too slow, we'd rather just play fluxx, when given the choice. However, it's your choice to bring it or not. :)

      Cheri I meant regular Fluxx and Pirate Fluxx & Martian Fluxx I just call the whole group that.

  • Cheri

    Hey everyone! I'm thrilled you are coming. Bring a game or two, but no worries, it's a game store, so we have plenty! LOL At 3pm many members (but not all) will be involved in an ongoing TICKET TO RIDE tournament. ($5 entry fee) However, regular gaming will also still be occurring, no worries there! Food wise: we have McDonalds, Subway, Japanese, Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins, Orange Leaf (yogurt), 7-11, CVS, Pizza. We also have menus for delivery (ie: chinese, diner, etc) Myriad does sell cold beverages ($2) and snack candy ($1) also, and you can bring your own. (No microwave, and all food/drink MUST be cleaned up immediately. You all know the routine! LOL )

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
