Cult Of Cybele Game Day

Mother's Day as we know it in America only dates back to the early 20th Century but The celebration of Mothers dates back thousands of years to Ancient Civilizations who made godesses of them. It is The Mother who is the foundation of Creation giving birth to the very Universe. It is the Mother that is the symbol of the Harvest. The Cult of Cybele was well known to the Greeks and Romans. Here is a link.

Take it from me, If you have a Mom who is still around, or if you are a Mom or married to a Mom, I hope you have great memories to Cherish and make sure they know not only how important they are to you but to all of civilization. Also, you can always bring Mom to Game Day. 


Same old Stuff: 

The Day Begins early and is very casual. Doors will be open from 10 AM to 10 PM but if you want to get a head start on your epic 4X Space Opera or any other time consuming event type game, I would be happy to let you in as early as 8 AM if you let me know. As usual, coffee, tea, soda, water and ice will be provided. The clubhouse has a full kitchen including a stove and microwave so you can bring your own lunch, and/or dinner with you. There are many dinner options close by to eat-in, take-out or have delivered. We have the facilities to keep things hot or cold if required. Contributions of food (snacks, desserts, fruit salad, etc.) or Soft Drinks to share are always welcome.

Games: Bring your favorites. If there is something you want to play that you don't own, someone might. Simply request it in a comment or in a Discussion. Our game inventory usually has over 100 diferent choices. Please be able to demo and effectively teach what you bring. Our members are very enthusiastic about introducing newbees to the hobby, so don't worry about lack of experience. We will get you through it with as much fun and as little frustration as possible. 

Parking: there is plenty, but please park in any space that doesn't have a number.

    I know this is a weird question but are pets allowed in the club house? our house is open tomorrow from 10 on and we have to take our dog with us for the open. If she can come then Bruce and I would love to join you. Since the last time there we have purchased Quirkle and Ticket to ride Thanks

      I think the real question is what games can your dog play? :)

    Sorry, since it is Mother's Day I'm headed away for that weekend! We are itching to get back for game day soon though. Played (most of) an Agricola game last night, and I would like to try it again once I'm more caffeinated!
