Monthly Coolstuff Meetup! - September, 2013

All right, we missed August, so I guess the meetup is "mostly" monthly. :)

Anyhow, for those who haven't been there - great deals on games, lots of room - the store has games you can play, and some of us will bring a ton more to try out!

All day gaming! Hope to see you there!


Edit:

OK, Coolstuff has approved us running a charity raffle at the store.  You can buy tickets directly from me for $1 a ticket - with all proceeds going to the Jack Vasel Memorial Fund (www.jackvasel.org).

And what prizes!  We will be raffling off a brand new copy of Nothing Personal and a signed copy of Dungeon Twister: the card game.

And the big one - we're raffling off a copy of the Deluxe Takenoko.  Brande new, $200 game.  See a picture of it here:

I will announce the winners at 5 PM.  So come on out and have fun!

    Went to CSG to pick something up. Was surprised to see so games, didn't know this event was happening. Unfortunately I wasn't able to stay and join the fun. Hopefully I will be able to make it to a future event.

    WOOT, great times. Thank you very much to Tom Vasel and the folks at Cool Stuff for the awesome meetup and awesome raffle. Played: Relic Runners, Battlestar Galactica, and Hordes: High Command.

    So many good games. Lots of friendly and patient people.

    Is anyone bringing Empires of the Void? I haven't played it, but based on the reviews, I know it could potentially be a top game for me. Tom, I know you like it, so I'm looking at you :)

      Thanks, I'll rope my wife into playing, so we got at least 3.

    I'm picking up two new games at the meetup: Romance of the Nine Empires and the newest expansion for Ascension, Rise of Darkness (or something). I'd like to play them both...any takers?

      I would be up for playing either after finishing diplomacy, but you'd have to show me. They look very cool though.

      September 27, 2013

  • Christopher U.

    Would anyone be interested in a game of Diplomacy or 5 person Ancient Mediterranean diplomacy?

    • Jason

      I will play either version...but prefer a noon start...so that we can get in other games around 5 or 6 afterwards.

      September 26, 2013

    • Christopher U.

      I agree Jason. The sooner the better. I set hard time limits for each phase of the game so that we can move through it. Now we just need 1 more and we have at least one game set.

    Serious question Tom. The last two times I have been there on a weekend the store has been packed with people and the store employees refused to compensate by lowering the A/C. It made for an unbearably hot environment. It's to the point where people were bringing oscillating fans from home to compensate. Do we have enough pull to get them to turn the A/C down? It's a great spot to game but I'm not going to drive 30 minutes up there again to bake inside their store because they are too cheap to turn the A/C down. Anything you can do about this would be fantastic.

      I've never noticed it being hot there. If it is, I'll speak to them.

      August 27, 2013

    • Christopher U.

      I've always been comfortable there. Never too hot or cold.

    Well, looks like I won't be able to make it this month. Why do the people I supervise need to take vacation days? crazy.

    Anyways, is there any way I can put in for the raffle?

    September 18, 2013

  • John M C.

    Man, the cool stuff guys are going to kill me. I didn't have an excuse to go get my stuff this month. I have at least 3 orders to pick up.

      Lightweight. Last time I was in there, half the table was my junk that was sitting there for a few weeks. I had to ask for bags to get it all out.
