Weekly Thursday Night Game Gathering at IHOP (6:00 PM)

  • Nov 29, 2012 · 6:00 PM

We are a group of people who like to get together on Thursday nights (at IHOP) and on Sunday afternoons (at Madison Square mall) to socialize over boardgames. We play a wide variety of games so there is sure to be one to suit everyone's taste. Just look at our games played discussions. Most games can be taught in about 5 minutes so everyone can join in the fun without feeling lost for long. Come join us, you'll be glad you did.

Some of us arrive at 5:30 for pre-game meals. Some of us eat during a game. Some of us arrive at 7:00 or 8:00. Games are played at multiple tables with varying game play durations so you should be able to join in a game after a short wait no matter when you arrive. Although people start to leave after 9:00, some people have been known to play past midnight.

Unfortunately, most people do not RSVP so it is not a good indicator of the number of people who will actually show up at a meetup. Look at the past meetups for a better indicator of the number of people who will attend.

  • Gil A.

    Welcome Joann to your 1st meetup. Hope you had fun. Gil & Joshua were the lucky winners of the door prizes, 3 Commandments for Gil & 10 days in Europe for Joshua. Erik & Gil played Psi Guild while waiting for players to gather. When Erik extended his army across too many hexes, Gil marched on his Psionic and killed him with mundane combat, thus winning the game. Erik, Gabe, Gil & Kath played Castles of Burgundy. Kath had a strong start but was unable to sustain the lead. Gil steadily gained the lead and broke away from the pack during final scoring. Gil, Joann, Laurie & Mathew played Fresco with all 3 expansions. The lead position was swapped among the players many times till toward the end, when Gil & Mathew pulled ahead. On the final turn, Mathew's zeal to be the 1st player prevented him from seeing the play that would've made Gil lose a worker and the game. Sorry Mathew. Besides the games played at John's tables, Agricola, Legendary, Mage Wars & others were played.

  • John R.

    King of Tokyo with the new expansion: John, Erica, Jennifer, Laurie and new player Joann joined. The game was a lot of fun with everyone trying their best to kill each other, except for Jennifer who had slowly accumulated victory points. On her final roll of the die she managed to pull of the victory by gaining her last 4 points on die rolls. It was exciting and a good win for her. Then the same group played Pickomino. It was a close game coming down to the last couple of tiles, with John winning by 1 worm. John, Alison, Steve, Jason and Melissa(sp?) played Ticket to Ride: Europe. John stayed pretty quiet and slowly built his tracks making his connections while everyone else was blocking each other. In the end John won by 30+ points over Steve the next highest player. John, Steve, and Alison played Sentinels of the Multiverse. The Fanatic, Bunker, and The mighty Ra battled against Omitron in the Ruins of Atlantis. The heroes took a beating leaving only the Fanatic to destroy Omitron.
