Boardgame Potluck @ Craig & Jennie's!

  • June 28, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Craig & Jennie's House

We want to make sure that as many people as possible get to participate in a boardgame night each month since they are the most popular event, so please follow the guidelines on each of the other boardgame nights... if you're already attending one (hosting does not count as attending), please wait until Wednesday, June 26th before RSVPing to this event.

Grab your favorite board game and some good food, and bring it on over! Geeky board games welcome (Ticket to Ride, Settlers of Catan)... though if you're set on playing anything super time-consuming (Risk, Monopoly), your experience might not be as fun/varied.

 

FOOD NOTE

Most people come straight from work without getting a chance to eat dinner.  Please be considerate and bring something dinnery, ideally home cooked or "real food" rather than sugar/salt/fat-laden snacks. We appreciate it if you don't bring chips and dip (they never get eaten) and as a general rule, do bring something you are willing to (a) eat yourself, and (b) take home afterwards. No food left behind! (We don't want the dog accidentally eating leftovers and getting sick.)

PET NOTE

Please note, if you are allergic to pets, we have two cats and a dog. Our dog is a very enthusiastic 100-lb Labrador, if you are scared of dogs please let both Craig and Jennie know when you arrive and we will do our best to keep him out of the action so you are comfortable.

GAMES NOTE

Games we have in the house: Dominion, Smallworld, Munchkin, Fluxx (Monty Python+original), Castle Panic, Defenders of the Realm, Zombie Dice, Get Bit, Zombicide, Escape from Castle Ravenloft, Galaxy Trucker, Cards against Humanity+expansions.

SURPRISINGLY LONG PARKING NOTE

Downtown Mountain View on Friday nights does tend to fall a little short on parking. We are close to the Mountain View Caltrain/VTA stop. You can usually find residential parking on Villa/Oak/Franklin/Dana streets and there is a huge parking lot on Franklin@Villa (opposite Tied House). There is parking directly opposite our house, but this is the Mountain View police department and technically all parking in that lot is for people visiting the police station. We have had guests who parked there without any problems, but it's your risk. You can pull up in our driveway to drop people/stuff off if needed, but the drive is shared with our neighbours, so please don't leave your car there.

    Hey guys, Quite a few people didn't show up tonight - understandable if stuff comes up or you're not given much notice but I'd really appreciate it if you could keep your RSVP as up to date as possible!

    With a wait list of 17 people, I'm sure even with short notice we would've found someone to take your place if you couldn't make it!

      Sorry Craig, I was one of those. Was still on the waiting list a couple days ago and figured I wouldn't make it. Missed the email that told me I had gotten in. Would have loved to come actually. Will be better about being updated on status :/

    Escape from Monster Mansion: A cooperative game where players find escape, while each strive to accomplish their hidden agendas... This is my game on kickstarter, and I would be more than happy to demo my game to anyone interested!

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.
