Since our first board game event was such a hit, let's do it again!  We'll meet at the West Des Moines Public Library, in the gathering area that used to be the cafe before it closed.  Feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks...and don't forget to bring a game or two!

    I had a lot of fun once I was able to settle in and get to know a few people. Just an fyi for the organizers, if there are going to be quite a few new people, please have someone at least stand up and greet people coming in, especially if they are running late... It's pretty awkward to come into a new setting, especially for social introverts, and not be made to feel welcomed. I plan on coming to other group meetups, however. I am glad I came. :)

      Jamie, I completely understand what you're saying! We should come up with a scheme that makes it easy for everyone. I'll think about it and see if I can offer any suggestions.

      And I should also say i'm sorry for walking in late... I had no idea there were people there other than the meetup group. No harm done, and Caron has a really good idea... :) it was great to meet the people I did, and like I said, it was fun :)

    Hey everyone! In case you aren't sure where to go, when you enter the main entrance of the library the room is just inside the door, off to the left (it's called the "Library Living Room"). There are several tables and chairs in there, plus vending machines. Again, feel free to bring snacks, drinks, and games! Even if you don't want to play games, this is a great opportunity to get together and just meet others in the group and talk...we have a lot of new members joining us! Will see you all tomorrow :)

    I thought I was running late. Turns out I was a month early (I didn't even look at the date - I just saw "Saturday", "Board Games", & "West Des Moines Library"). If anybody is in the neighbourhood we're here with Bananagrams & Apples to Apples (back in the kids area at the moment). Otherwise, see You all next month...

    What specific games did you play? Chess? Trivia?

      Pretty much anything! Last time we met, we played Farkle, Apples to Apples, Wits and Wagers....while others were perfectly content to just sit and talk.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
