(Updated June 9, 2013) Most of our attendees do not RSVP via Meetups. Attendance is typically 12- 20 per week. Below is our monthly game scheduled; note that these plans are always subject to change; I will do my best to email alerts to the meetups member list but there is always a chance of cancellation. It is the nature of "open-gaming" there are often impromptu games, unplanned openings, and no shows; so bring your favorite game; you never know. Dropping by to check us out if fine. If your age 17 - 14; a guarding must attend with you, 13 and under are not permitted. Seven PM is normally when we have use of the room, some groups start a bit later. More details about this meetup fallowing the scheduled.

New: The Heir Apparent : Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2nd edition This campaign has the potential to explore most of the 'Old World' that appears in the Warhammer Fantasy setting. At the start, the game will be basically Human-centric but non-Human characters will be considered later in the campaign. GM Shawn adds "I plan a campaign that will feature an even mix of roleplay and action but I also tend not to roll dice for everything. My main goals are to entertain the players and also to entertain myself". Openings

Pathfinder - GM Eric - "What is in an illithid what is this I don't even..." The game is full but Eric will generally take drop-in players.
Traveller - (Update: not running in May due to vacations but I will be there with Traveller stuff and we can create characters for June) GM Ben (me) - Science-fiction adventure in the far future using the updated rerelease of the classic system & setting from Mongoose Games. Players are "special agents" fighting crime and carrying out other tasks. A lot of undercover work. Emphases on roleplaying, story & exploring the Traveller setting. Combat is deadly. Adventures feel a lot like an episode of Firefly. Easy rules.Openings The game is limited to a max of 5 players.>
Friday Night open-gaming notes
Staying in touch (emailing) the game-master is the most reliable way to confirm. Games that I know have "openings" or are "full" I have so marked; unmarked means I don't know.
One of the lessons we have learned over the years is that over-crowded games hurts the fun for everyone. We need more events, so if you feel like running a game, we've got room and I can find players.
Note also that the first Friday of the month is our business meeting as well, usually about 10 minutes, open to guests and members.
Note also; games are run on the "1st", "2nd" , "3rd" or "4th" Friday of the month. We have found the weekly rotation the best way to keep track of what's running when. We ad-hoc when there is a "5th" Friday.
