Light Board Game Night @ Newk's (Closed to RSVP)

Update 01/05/2013 - Please no more RSVP's. We have plenty of people signed up to come out with this group and the other groups meeting us there.

Let's meetup for some board game fun! I plan on bringing Settlers of Catan, Small World, King of Tokyo, Apples to Apples, Guillotine, Kingsburg, Saboteur, Jenga, Dixit, Yahtzee, and The Resistance, just to name a few. Feel free to bring a game of your choice. This event will be a cross posted event with a few other groups from Meetup, so the turnout should be pretty good (at least 15-20 people I'm estimating). Last time I hosted this event we had four games going at once and that was on the last shopping weekend before Christmas!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Do I need to know how to play the games before I attend?

No. Just come out and have fun! Our members are friendly and willing to teach you the games.

Do I have to show up right at the time the event is scheduled?

No. We usually play several games in one outing, so just come out and join in on fun! Also, you are not expected to stay for the full duration of the event either. Stay as long as you like.

Do I have to play a game?

Again no. You are welcome to just come hang out and watch. After I've gotten my gaming fix, I like to just check out the other games being played or socialize with guests.

As far as food goes at this venue, I recommend the Italian sandwich. I also hear that the chocolate cake is really good. Michael is a fan of the chocolate peanut butter rice crispy treats.

If you get lost or you are running late and wish to tell me, you can reach me at[masked]-4132. I do not have a smart phone so I cannot check emails once I leave my apartment, so call or text me on my cell phone. Hope to see you there!

      Good question Chris. I definitely do not need more people to come. I think we have enough coming out. I can't control the RSVP on suggested events. Newk's has a lot of tables. I've hosted events there several times and I have yet to see every table get filled up. Plus we usually have some no shows. We will just have to see I guess.

      .... but this might be the first time we overrun the restaurant. We may have to split off and go to another establishment.
