Welcome to the Palo Alto Boardgames Meetup Group!
We are a group of friendly people who enjoy getting together to play boardgames and meet new people. We usually get together at least once a week.
We're not really strict about the RSVPs, and we don't take headcounts :). We try to keep the organizational overhead minimal. That said, the RSVPs do help us a little in planning how much organization an event needs (it's a bit easier to handle a 10 person meetup than to find a place with a group of 30 :) ). Also it helps us determine when to start playing the long-running games.
So, I would really appreciate it if you try to keep your RSVP current so that the organizer of the event knows how many people to expect.
We usually meet at Happy Donuts in Palo Alto but we will probably be meeting at other venues as well. If you have a found a great place with big tables (and good egg sandwich ;-) ) let us know about it!
How will you find the group at an event?
Hmm, are the boxes with games and the dice a hint? ;-)
Bring anything that can be defined as a board-game. Do you have a game collecting dust in your house? Bring it with you and have fun with it again. Or come as you are and try out a completely new game.
Unfamiliar with boardgames?
Don't worry if you have never heard of the games you see posted at the events. Or if you haven't been playing boardgames in a while. Or if you have never played and would like to start now. All of us are happy to teach and you will see that the games are usually not so hard to understand once you start playing.
Right now we meet every Wednesday at Happy Donuts in Palo Alto. Occasionally we have special weekend events. It would be great if we could have more meetups on different evenings at different places. All it takes is for someone to be willing to host these events. Basically all you need to do is stake out a place with big tables that doesn't mind players filling up their tables. Send an email to Beth or Maneesh to become assistant organizer, post a meetup, greet the players and enjoy. :-)
It would be great if you could rate events that you have been at and maybe write a short review of the group. They can be as short as you like but they give others a way to learn what we are about. Thanks!
We're looking forward to meeting you at one of our events soon!
