Noobaholics Anonymous

Hi, my name is David, and I'm a noob. Well, for some games that is. Even with all the games I've played in my life (I even owned a game store up in Detroit once upon a time!), I still haven't played everything out there despite my best efforts. Learning new games can be daunting at times in a huge group, but we aim to create an environment that is conducive to learning here so that we have more awesome people to play our favorite awesome games with.

At this meetup, there will be one person to demo the game and all other game slots will be filled with a preference to those that have never played. The person demo'ing the game will be there to answer your questions and help you have fun instead of just trying to stomp you into the ground mercilessly so that they can laugh maniacally over your noob corpse. Geez, who does that sort of thing anyways? Jerks, that's who!

Discussion of strategy will be encouraged. The idea isn't to tell you how to play but to mold you into a player that can go forth and laugh maniacally over experienced people's corpses! (Much more satisfying. Trust me.)

Hope to see you there!!

    I'm curious, what is a noob? Is it a hard-core gamer? I'm more of a casual gamer, and I'm new to this. I love to play Settlers of Catan. Is Dominion and some of the other games you guys play somewhat similar? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

      As Walter points out, noob suggests someone that is new to something. In this case, a game of any kind. The games we play tend to be largely of the Settlers of Catan variety, though some are more casual as well. Noobaholics Anonymous is our monthly event where you get to explore new games in an environment in which it's safe to be a noob. :)

    noob = newbie = someone new, a beginner.

    I'll bring Dominion with a few expansions (Base set, Intrigue and Prosperity) in case anyone wants to learn.

      I just learned Dominion a couple of weeks ago! If I can make it, I'll be there!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
