Brettspiele Nacht

This is a new location for us in Murray Hill, and it seems relatively quiet, has a large number of good-sized tables, and offers a nice variety of food and drink at a reasonable price, so we are holding our next event here again. It's open 24 hours, but they close the dining area around 10 or 11.  I will see if I can extend that at all.

You can bring your board games or play the ones we brought.  You can arrive at anytime, and we will try to get you into the next open game.  Your knowledge of German or of game rules is not as important as your desire to have fun!

There is free wi-fi.  The management asks that we not bring in outside food or drink.

Now that the location can accommodate more of us, also be sure as many as possible of you BRING GAMES!

    Thanks for organizing Brettspiele Nacht, Mark. I enjoyed myself thoroughly (this was my first German meetup) playing Scrabble with amiable, interesting people. Nor will I soon forget that "hexe" ends in 'e', "wut" has no umlaut, and "ehemann" needs a second 'e.'

    Hi y'all! I'm a native speaker that just moved to NYC! I'd love to attend your gaming night but I'm last place on the waiting list;( but I was asking myself if I could swing by anyway?

      Well, we are well short of the fire marshal's limit, but when we take close to half the space, other patrons can start to complain that their seating choices were too limited or that we are being too loud or they may even be confused whether the area is open to the public.

      Now that you mention it, I'm surprised that 50 would take up just half the space; it seemed smaller than that on first impression. In any case I agree about considering the other customers. See you later!...

    For those of you on the waitlist who don't get in to the actual event, do you guys want to grab a drink in the city that night at another bar? I hope I'm not breaking protocol by suggesting this, it just seems like we're all free and we all want to practice our German. Mark has a good point about not over-extending our welcome at this other place. Unfortunately I don't know where else has board games, nor do I own anything beyond a deck of cards, but I'm sure we could find some place in the East Village or Grenwich Village we could get together for a couple hours.

      Btw, I'd be happy to organize something for the "wait-listers"­, as I have all the time in the world... :-)

      Like I said, that number of spots often opens up by noon the day of. No more waiting list.

    Andy, there are now again more targeted language practice meetups (check calendar), but this is a good place to broaden your vocabulary too. James, thank you for bringing Cafe International and the German Scrabble; I want to play both.

    I can read German almost fluently, but my conversational abilities lag far behind. (Where do we ever get to practice in the US of A?) I hope to change that now. I'm looking forward to my first NYC German Language Meetup Group event!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
