Board Games in Eagan

Trying again for south of the river. The Apple Valley library room was booked, but I was able to get the larger room at the Eagan branch, so there should be plenty of room for everyone!

    Enjoyable first! Very impressive to have so many turn up. Reminded me of my family reunions. Good game variety...lots of fun. Looking forward to the next one that I can attend! Thanks, Kristi, for organizing/hosting. Art K.

      Good to see you, Arthur! I wish you could have stayed. Some folks were playing scrabble later. Maybe next time. :)

    Nice people and we learned a few new games, including Alhambra. Was happy to spread the joys of Small World.

    I threw a bunch of games in my car. I can't remember them all. Some lighter Euros: Finca, Garden Dice, My Happy Farm, Alea Iaca Est, Love Letter. A couple party games: Telestrations, Dixit. I'll try to remember to add Skulls and Roses. I'm also bringing Crosscrib which is a variant on cribbage that can be played with two or four people. There might be a couple more in there, but I don't remember. Oh wait, I think I still have Puerto Rico in the trunk.

    I am planning on bringing The Lost Dutchman, Pandemic with Second Story (very fun cooperative game) and Alhambra Big Box (multiple expansions)

    I've got quite a few games, I'll bring along a few easy learner, co-op and euros.

    • John Morrison

      Settled on bringing Pandemic, Shadows Over Camelot, 7 Wonders and possibly one or two more.

    I have a question, and a question. The first one is that I've been hearing the word euro game on this meetup and others. What is/are those? Other than a few basic: Trivial, Apples to Apples, and such, my board game playing is mostly from my childhood. I think I'm going to love being able to play.

    The other question. I won't be able to be there until the afternoon, possibly as late as 1:00. I have a ton of games-when my daughter was younger she got a game every Christmas and Birthday until her very late teens, but we rarely played-just the two of us. When we finally got the nieces and nephews to play it was Trivial Pursuit and Apples to Apples. Should I bring games, or hold off this time-since I will be later?

    • Kristi Lawless

      You could always throw a couple games in the car, and decide later whether or not to bring them in.

      Euros are a newer style of game that are a bit more nuanced/balanced/coopera­tive/less luck based and less punishing than many old style American games. In other words, they're awesomely fun! I'm more than willing to teach anything I bring!

      March 22, 2013

  • Cynthia

    I really want to go but I don't get off work until 2:30 p.m. so I may show up late to try and catch the last round of games.

    March 22, 2013

    • Geri Dodge

      It sounds like there are several of us who won't be there til close to that time. I hope you show up.

    Turns out I have to work right in the middle of the day (ugh!). If I come by around 2:30, will anyone still be around? I'll probably stop by in any case (its on my way home from work).

    This would be my first ever meetup. I have a commitment in the morning. Can I come in the afternoon? I would love to get involved with a board/card game group.

    I will bring a view of the old time games like scrabble, backgammon, cribbage, Apples to Apples. Yet, I am all for trying some new games.

  • Kristi Lawless

    If you have a favorite game, please bring it! I'm still deciding what to bring. I keep changing my mind. :)
