The Sacramento Boardgames, Cardgames, & Miniatures Meetup's fun weekly gathering for playing boardgames and card games at the Crepeville in Midtown at the corner of L St. and 18th St., every Tuesday at 6 pm til closing (11 pm). All are welcome, open to the public, all ages, all skill & experience levels!
Open gaming! Please list the game(s) you'll be bringing on the RSVP comments. If somebody has RSVP'd with a game that you'd like to play, mention it in your RSVP.
All you "old hands" who've been attending the boardgames events for a while, please join me in welcoming our new members. If you see an unfamiliar face, ask them to join in.
New members: we're a friendly crowd, here to have fun and get some gaming done! Try to be on time, or even 10-15 minutes early, for maximum game choices. People will still be arriving after the designated start time, but most everybody that was there on time will already be "in game". People usually pile up the games they've brought on one of the tables. (Remember to put your name on the box!) Look over the games, and if you see something interesting, ask the owner if they'd be willing to show you how to play.
IMPORTANT GUIDELINES AND REMINDERS:
This is a restaurant and a business, not a library or YMCA. We are *not* renting out the place, the manager is being nice enough to let us use a large chunk of his space without charge. Please be courteous to the staff and fellow restaurant patrons, and please follow these common-sense etiquette requests:
• No outside food.
• Try to purchase at least $5 in food each visit, or at the very least on average at least $5 in food. Getting a $2 soda and getting 5 refills does not count as being a good customer.
• Since the restaurant closes at 11 pm, please be out by 10:45 pm so the staff has time to clean up and can leave on time, to avoid them having to work overtime.
• Please try to free up tables not being used for customers on busy, crowded nights.
• Please be conscious of the noise level of your game, and please watch your language around minors. This is a family game night and a family restaurant.
Don't let the lack of RSVPs scare you. This regular meetup has been going on for years and is one of the best regularly attended weekly events on the calendar. Most people just keep going and don't bother to RSVP, especially since it's also posted elsewhere. It gets typically 10 to 30 people each week and there are usually 3 or 4 games of various types and levels being played simultaneously, and there are almost always games to jump into. Attendees are friendly and love teaching games to new members.
Most popular games at Tuesday night game night are Euro-games and strategy board games, but also trading card games, card games like Apples to Apples and social games and parties games are also played. Classic games such as Monopoly, not so much, but it's not unheard of either.
The restaurant has recently renovated, and expanded their menu, so it now features, along with crepes, hamburgers, veggie burgers, salads, salmon, sandwiches, chicken fingers, french fries, breakfast all day (omelettes, french toast, eggs benedict), pastries, desserts, a coffee bar, and a beer and wine menu, and more, and they do take credit cards now.
If Crepeville is every closed for a private event or such, consider using Buckhorn across the street as a back-up or overflow location.
