Ben and I are once again extending an invite to everyone for a board game night at our place on Saturday, February 2nd starting at 4pm. For a full list of the games we have available please see below. We encourage everyone who attends to bring games from your own collection along if you have any. As always a few snacks will be provided. If anyone would like to bring additional snacks and drinks we always appreciate it! Because the weather is getting colder and we won't have access to our outdoor patio table we'll be capping the RSVP limit to 16.

We're located at 2424 Emerald Court Apt 106 in Woodridge. We’re just west of I-355 off Janes Ave between 75th Street and Boughton. Please note Janes Ave is a 25mph street and the police strictly enforce it. Make sure to get a guest parking pass from us if you park in the apartment parking lot.

For people with pet allergies, please be aware that we have three cats and three chinchillas. If you have allergies please bring your antihistamine of choice if you plan to attend. This is a smoke-free apartment.

    We have room for 3 more folks tonight. Since it's last minute, if you're on the wait list and still want to show up you're welcome to drop over. Just please post here that you're coming so not everyone on the wait list shows up at once. First three to post are welcome over. :)

    Well, I finally got in to one of these exclusive game nights. I may be a little late due to work. How late do these usually go? Here is a link to my game collection: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/hrdplstc?own=1&subtype=boardgame&ff=1 Take a look and if you see anything there that interests you, let me know and I'll bring it along with me. This is my thing. I'm looking forward to gaming with everyone.

      I am saying this for everyone - I hope no one ever truly thinks the game nights Ben and I host are exclusive. We are welcoming to everyone. The RSVP cap is due to space limitations on our apartment - it's only 750 sq ft. Even though a lot of regular members attend, we get a fair amount of new people each time we host. We are aware that board game nights are growing in popularity for this meetup group so efforts have been made to hold them more often at local game stores which offer more space. Fair Game has a possible Magic event the weekend of Feb 2nd, so Ben and I decided it would be a nice day to host an event. There is an open game meetup at the Wander Dragon the following weekend on the 9th and we'll be back at Fair Game on 23rd for an RPG event. Looking forward to see you again Arne! That's quite an impressive game collection.

    Because there is a substantial waiting list for this event, we would kindly ask anyone that won't be able to make it to remove themselves from the lost. We want to give those on the waiting list a fair chance of attending.

    Turns out I'm not going to be in town that weekend now, so somebody else gets my spot. Have fun!

    January 23, 2013

  • Ben R.

    Robert, yes you can bring a +1. If a spot opens up people from the wait list are added in the order they signed up. Hope to see you both there!

  • Tiara L.

    Yay!! We made it on the list!! We can also bring some things from our library. If anyone's interested in playing the BSG game I know Adrian and I would both be really interested. :)

    • Ben R.

      We usually play some short games. Typically stuff that is 45m-75m. That way we get more opportunity to play games with everyone.

      January 13, 2013

    • Ben R.

      That said, I frisking Love BSG ad we should find time to play a game of it.
