    Great time playing Taboo. Thanks to 'someone', I'm listening to Hero by Mariah Carey on this late evening at the office ;)

      Lol ! So funny how everyone just turned , pointed and shouted "ah ha" when "someone" called out the song!

    Hi ! Well I called up and the lady said she would make arrangements for us when we arrive, but is unable to make a reservation. So will try to get some space for us upstairs when I get there :)

    • Gokhan P.

      Thank you so much Sheetal! See you tomorrow.

      May 3, 2013

  • Gokhan P.

    OK, so I've changed the time from 1:00PM to 5:00PM. We usually meet "inside and upstairs" at the Shakespeares & Co, where it's not as busy.

    I believe the person who suggested the Taboo Night meetup is no longer active, so it's been sorta organized between comments and suggestions for a time and venue.

    With the change of time to 5:00PM, I'm now able to attend myself, and I'll be happy to make sure everyone finds the venue and there is clarity about the organization - sorry for being so blunt.

    See you tomorrow at 5:00Pm at Shakespeares & Co (DIFC)!

      Hi Gokhan, I'm so sorry. I sort of suggested this event but I'm brand new to this group and had no idea how to go about it! I thought you would approve it and then take it forward, so really my apologies! Definitely looking to the event, see you Saturday.

      May 2, 2013

    • Gokhan P.

      Hi Mona :) The organizers who are active change all the time. I've been a member of the group for a while, and seen many key members move countries or whatever else life throws at you. What I'm trying to say is, we correctly don't have anyone who's actively filling that role. We're sorta waiting for people currently living in Dubai to step up. I only recently started organizing these boardgame meetups on Saturdays, and with that recent activity in the group, the Taboo Night also had many interested. And that's absolutely wonderful!

      Now let's have members attend tomorrow and make sure everyone have a good experience, so that they will recommend the group and bring more people to enjoy what we all know - how fun & social boardgames can be.

    Oh boo I thought it was at 1 sorry I won't be able to make it at 5

  • Chris V

    Hey Gokhan. Cheers for that mate. so are we confirmed on a rendezvous time or are we just going to have an open house with people coming in and leaving as they deem fit? Sheetal seems to have "taboo" and she would ideally like to geet there earlier and tbh honest so would I as i need to head to the airport around 630 ish!! ;-) Please advise. looking forward to seeing you all. C

    May 1, 2013

    • Gokhan P.

      Hi Chris, it's always an open house with some people coming late and leaving early. Join us for as long as you can!

      May 2, 2013

  • Olaava M.

    So, is the time 1pm or 5pm? I'm available to come either time, but would like confirmation.

    May 2, 2013

    • Gokhan P.

      Hi Olaava, confirmed at 5:00PM. See you.

      May 2, 2013

  • Gokhan P.

    Got a little ahead of myself there, of course I meant to say: See you on SATURDAY at 5:00PM!

    May 2, 2013

  • Sheetal

    We will be there at 4:45pm. Quick question ..... Is there a reserved spot for us or a "come and grab what you see" kinda thing.....just incase I get there before anyone.

    May 2, 2013

    • Gokhan P.

      That's great! We usually don't reserve a spot because its not that busy, but we may need to reserve a table this
      5:00PM meetup. Sheetal, do you mind giving them a call and reserving a table for 8 people under your name? The reason is: You're there first, you have the game, and you sound like a very helpful person :) If more than 8 people show up, it's a luxury problem at this point.

      May 2, 2013

  • Chris V

    Guys is this confirmed? Al Attar is on the Emirates road side corect? Its the silver funky ultra modern looking tower, is that right? I agree with Adil, if we could start a wee bit later!! ;-)

    April 30, 2013

  • Sheetal

    Hey ! I'll be bringing taboo :) 5:00 is good for us, but may have to leave slightly earlier.

      I would prefer a slightly later start, not least because it's billed as a 'Games Night', lol

  • Gokhan P.

    @Nataly "Boardgames at The Pavillion (returns)" on April 13th is a different meetup. I don't who setup this one, but we can still make it happen. Let's do this on an evening, when would you have time?

    @Will GMtB sounds great, do bring it!

    April 4, 2013

  • Gokhan P.

    Not sure who created this event. Mona? Any suggestions for a date? My suggestion is Monday (Apr 8th) evening at 19:30 in Downtown Dubai area.

    @Will, you're very welcome to bring Me and the Brain, is it a short appetizer game?

    But Taboo will be the star of the show. I have the US edition of Taboo that I will bring. :)
