    Since this is open gaming, and our favorite game is Sit and Stare at Each Other, I'm going to list games I want to play. If anyone else wants to play one of these (or make their own list), at least we'll have a smaller list to pick from :P

    Is this an appropriate event for a first timer looking to learn some new games?

    November 9, 2013

    • Patricia

      Yes! If you want to come out and learn new games please do so. This group is very patient and always willing to teach new games. We like new members , and we want to teach them so we can have more people to play with. :) Hope to see you there.

      November 9, 2013

  • Gisela R.

    I've just got the information that I have to work tomorrow. I'll be arriving late afternoon. I hope that this isn't a problem. Looking forward to learn some new games.

    November 8, 2013

    • Patricia

      It's no problem at all. Like the description states... games start regularly so its easy for people to leave and go as they can. We look forward to teaching you new games :)

    • Patricia

      I would like to try Phantom Society again. Jay brought it over and I feel I was too harsh on it the first time. :p

  • Venita

    Hi everyone, not to be left out of the future gaming events, what about a Medieval, then Renaissance, how about a Feld game day, auctioneer of the year with only auction games included. Polynesian day -or just queen or king of the islands....I'm inspired by my surroundings now. Are there enough games for this one? I don't know but I'm sure Manny can come up with something.

    October 27, 2013

    • Patricia

      We already did a Feld game day :p You missed it. (I had to :p lol )

      October 27, 2013

    • Javier M.

      Or we could do a survival day since Venita is in the jungle. J/k. (ex. Survive or Robinson Crusoe)
