You're invited to game day lucky number thirteen in nearby Creswell! (Ten minutes south of Eugene.) This free gaming event starts at 2pm. What will we be playing this time? What won't we be...
THE FEATURED GAME: NONE?!?
This week's game day is going to be an experiment. Instead of starting with a large "Featured Game", we're going to try many simultaneous smaller games -- a Board Game Gallimaufry, if you will.
IT'S LIKE SPEED DATING, EXCEPT SLOWER AND WITH LESS LYING
Here's how it will work. Everyone who attends is encouraged to bring a 2-5 player game that they like. (If you don't have any to bring, don't worry, extra games are always available.)
At the start of the event, we'll randomly split into several small groups, each with a "captain". The captain will select a game to play with their group.
Players who are eliminated will win the consolation prize of becoming the captain who selects a game for the next small group that becomes available as other games end.
The goal is to give people a chance to introduce new games we haven't had a chance to try yet.
WHAT WILL YOU BRING?
Feel free to post a comment listing any games you're considering bringing. It may help reduce the learning curve (ie: less time explaining, more time playing) if we have an idea of what to expect.
We usually have the entire Community Center to ourselves, meaning no background noise or crowds. It's a great place for gaming!
The community center is at 99 South 1st Street in Creswell, just off the main street, behind City Hall and the fire station.
Here is a link to a picture of the Creswell Community Center building:
The room we'll be in is the one on the left in that photo.
Snacks are okay. We just need to leave the room as clean as we found it.
There's plenty of free parking in the center's parking lot.
I hope you can join us. Whether you're coming from Eugene, Springfield or Cottage Grove, it's just a short drive to Creswell to join us. It's well worth it!
Bring 'em on!
