Video games and ponies X (Mira Mesa, San Diego)

  • May 10, 2014 · 6:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Special Notes This Time

• We will provide biscuits and gravy, so please consider bringing breakfast-related potluck foods (bacon, milk, OJ, etc.).

• We will be watching the episode *live* at 7am and continuing to play video games for the rest of the day.

• Before about 9am, please be *very* careful about volume, we really don't want to wake up our neighbors.

• We're going to be crazy and open our home for up to 20 bronies (22 counting us 2)  Please be considerate of others, and try to be quiet, especially before 9am.  We may not be able to fit everyone into the main room, so please be willing to share the smaller screen if necessary.

22 attendee-limit this time.

Introduction

We are old video game collectors and would like to have a pony and video game party with you! We live in the Mira Mesa area near the Target and Von's stores. Our systems include Atari, NES, N64, PS2, Wii, and more! Some systems have more games than others, so let us know if you'd like to bring your own to play.

We're in a 2-bedroom apartment, so space is limited, but we have a decent projector setup for about 10 people to enjoy, and 2 other smaller setups in another room.

Sorry for the wall of text below. I'm trying to summarize the comments from the first event so we don't have to re-type things each time we have this kind of party.

We hope to see you there!

Allergies

We have 2 guinea pigs in our home. If you are allergic to small animals or hay, please take this into consideration when RSVPing.

We will move these guys to a different room during the party.


Transportation

Please find your own transportation to the meetup. Giving rides can be fun, but HF & LG need to stay and get everything ready. :)-


Food

We'd love to do a potluck-style thing :) Comment below if you can bring chips/soda/snacks/etc, but don't feel bad if you can't think of something.

No alcohol please - there may be teens present, and Logic/Heart Felt don't like the stuff.


Games

If you would like to bring games for a system, see our full system list below. Of course, you can bring your own system if you want.
Please label your games so they don't get mixed up with other people's games.

Note: Please no M-Rated games... we like to keep things SFW / family friendly.


RSVPs

Since we have a limit on attendees - if you find out you can't come (which would be sad), please update your rsvp so someone else can come instead. Thanks!

    Does anyone have a blindbag Fluttershy we could borrow for the party? We have the Mane 6 set up for something tomorrow, but I can't find Fluttershy.
    (we have the McDs and other FS, just can't find blindbag size).

    Another cancellation. This time for a family outing.

    Due to the luck I've been having, for any future VG&P meets, I'll have to automatically decline unless for certain I have no problems being able to make it.

    May 9, 2014

    • Logic G.

      No problem... do what you need to, but don't worry too much about backing out if you need to

  • Christopher

    So I have a work obligation I forgot about tomorrow from 8-10 am... So I'll probably come by around 1030 or so. If anyone would like my spot before that, please feel free.

  • Albino From A.

    ... Darn it, I just realized this is going to be a 6:30am-2pm meet to watch the show live... there is no way I can make that. Therefore I will bow out and allow one of the wait listed bronies in. Have a grate time everypony and enjoy the show.

    May 9, 2014

  • Albino From A.

    Let's see that finale!!!!

  • CloserToTheSun

    I'm kinda interested in going. If I do, I have my Rock Band with literally over a thousand songs, including pony and customs. Interested in me bringing it or no?

    April 29, 2014

    • Logic G.

      Still, the wide song collection sounds cool :)

      April 30, 2014

    • CloserToTheSun

      I understand. I'll bring the Xbox and a spare guitar.

      April 30, 2014

  • Alex L.

    I'll RSVP for now but I may back out if I can't get a ride up there. Earliest I'd be with transit is 7:30/8:00AM if I hustle from the closest bus stop. May not go at all since it will be National Train Day proper and there's stuff going on at Santa Fe depot this year.

    April 29, 2014

  • Logic G.

    If a waitlist forms for this meetup, please give priority to bronies who couldn't come to VG&P IX on May 3rd
