Re: [boardgames-35] light hearted games

Yes, Arkham Horror is in a different category altogether I guess!!  Takes forever but is more "adventure-y" rather than deeply strategic.  I also like Descent. 

 

Anyway, there seems to be interest in augmenting the twice monthly Loop gatherings with some get togethers specifically geared towards some lighter, funnier stuff....  I love boardgaming so much, I can play all kinds so the more events the better for me!

 

I'm not sure how to proceed now though.... thought of creating a Yahoo group but not sure how to route new people to it without risking it seeming that I am spamming this group.  I can't afford to create my own Meetup right now, so Yahoo might be a good option, don't want to continue flooding the board in here. Not sure if it is possible for this Meetup to sponsor other events beyond the Wed/Sat Loop outings.  The other issue is where to meet?  If anyone has any ideas about a good venue somewhere on the North side of ITP I would love to hear about it.  I'd volunteer my place but only for small gatherings of about 8, any more than that would get hairy.

 

So any suggestions?  And I don't want to step on anyone's toes (I've loved the Loop meetups!) so Ward, please let me know what is permissible within this group...

WOW I need to get back to these meetups if Arkham Horror is being played as a light hearted game. Co-operative games are a ton of fun, but can take quite some time. AH is an amazing game, just make sure you have at least one person who knows how to play.

If you decide to do an outside-the-loop meetup, please let know.

I'm currently packing boxes for a move from Midtown to North Buckhead (ITP).  Once I've unpacked all the boxes I am intending to start a weekly gaming gathering there.  I do enjoy strategic and German style games, but I also tend to prefer *much* shorter/lighter fare.  (And I've got a reasonable collection on both fronts.)  So watch this space for that announcement in 2-4 weeks (depending on how quickly I get moved/unpacked).
