On Feb 5th I'm starting a weekly Wednesday Night Games Night. It will repeat every Wednesday for anyone interested in coming. You don't have to show up right at 5pm, I know that's close to when people are just coming home from work, etc... But anytime 5pm onwards, you're welcome to join us.
As far as drinks and snacks go, just bring something for yourself, don't worry about bringing enough for everyone else.
We can even take a break after 1 or 2 games and then go out and grab some quick food if we get really hungry. There is literally EVERY type of restaurant within 1 block's walking distance of my house, so whatever you're in the mood for, it's just a block away. There's: Subway, McDonalds, Wendys, A&W, KFC, 4 Pizza/Italian places, a couple Chinese food places, a Mongolian Grill, Taco Del Mar, White Spot, IHOP, Starbucks, Tim Hortons, a Falafel & Donair place, a Japanese & Sushi place, and a Greek Place all within 1 block from my house, lol.
I swear, 6th street in New West is all restaurants, there's even a Waffle House!
My house is a small house and therefore this event will be limited to a maximum of 12 people. (We tried it out in my other Meetup Group on Jan 12th, and twelve people was just the right amount).
I also have this meetup advertised over at:
So if you plan on attending, please make sure that you RSVP, otherwise I may have to turn people away at the door if we have more than I can accommodate.
There's lots of Free street parking available for anyone who drives.
If anyone needs to be picked up from the skytrain, please let me know, I have room in my car for 3 passengers.
I have the following games:
Shadows Over Camelot - the Board Game
Pillars of the Earth + Expansion
Shadows Over Camelot - the Card Game
The Stars Are Right
Castle Panic + Wizard Tower expansion
Settlers of Catan (also the Traders & Barbarians xpack)
King of Tokyo
Survive: Escape from Atlantis + Expansions
Cards Against Humanity
I also have a Nintedo Wii with 4 controllers and the following multiplayer games:
Guitar Hero III (I have 2 guitars)
Mario Party 8
Mario Cart (4 Steering Wheels)
Smash Bros. Brawl
Feel free to bring some of your own games, but try to bring only 1 or 2 games with you (ones that you would really like to play on a given Wednesday night).
I've put an Orange colored light-rope on the front of the house so that it will stand out when you're trying to find it. It's still getting dark out early these days and my street is poorly lit and it would be hard to see the numbers on my house, so I just want to make sure it's easy for everyone to find.
There are 2 cats in the house, so if you're allergic to cats, this probably isn't a good meetup for you, sorry.
