BLANK Night Meetup is an invite-only* Meetup group created by Jesse Chapman and Chris Newth in order to host all sorts of events (but mostly game nights) with their friends.
We used to host through Facebook, but their Event system is pretty terrible. People wouldn’t get invites in time, they'd RSVP but not show up, or too many people would show up for the type of event we had planned.
Meetup fixes these problems. You get an email anytime we host a new event. Also, if a game only works with six people, we can specify that. And if someone drops out, Meetup will instantly notify you that a spot is available.It simplifies things so the focus can be on the games, the fun, and just hanging out with friends.
*We only allow people we know personally to join our group. If you submit a request to join and you haven't been personally invited beforehand, you will be declined automatically.
