N00b. Go Frag Yourself.
We'll be playing Artemis & Frag & drinking all night. We might run longer than scheduled, maybe till the sun comes up over Sanata Monica Boulevard. You probably won't have fun if you don't drink, or can't take being mocked mercilessly for your poor Frag performance.
Artemis is a spaceship bridge simulator. Six people work together to fly a spaceship. Five have their own personal laptop/display, each controlling one aspect of the ship. The sixth is the captain, who requetss data from the others and issues directions based off of the view screen and other bridge officers. Everyone plays in the same room, so it's a very social co-op game. You may have seen it at Origins or GenCon. It's totally BAD!!! ASS!!!
Frag is a boardgame based around FPS shooters. It's full of luck and involves you shooting your friends in the face with railguns. If you do not like this game then you are a boring person.
The Bier Brewery is about 6 houses east of the meetup location, so we should be well stocked on good booze. We'll grill out some also, based on the RSVP count.
