Another Combined-Group Event!

 

The gaming group known as Barbara's Bunch invites members of San Diego Boardgames Group to game nights in University City on the FIRST Saturday of each month, usually at 7pm. University City, as most of you may know, is part of the "Golden Triangle" area to the east of La Jolla. This is a BYOJF event. PLEASE RSVP right away so we can get an idea of how many are interested. The address and phone will be provided later to those who RSVP "Yes". PLEASE NOTE: This host household does include pets (1 dog).

BARBARA'S BUNCH is a group that has been playing games here in San Diego for over 18 years -- since 1993. This Saturday's event, like most of their events, may include several kinds of games. There could be strategy games like Settlers of Catan and Zooloretto at one table, word games like Scrabble and My Word! at another table, party games like Taboo and Catch Phrase at yet another table. In other words, there should be a variety of games and game styles to fit your mood, much like our own game nights.

BYOJF? -- Means BRING YOUR OWN JUNK FOOD, of course! This event is being hosted in a private home, not a restaurant where you can buy munchies. Any kind of snack foods/beverages to share are welcome (and usually demolished!), SO BRING -- Games/Snacks/Beverages, and a friend (PLEASE make sure to add them in your RSVP)!

Member-swapping could benefit both groups! These co-hosted events have worked out quite well even from the beginning, and have been posted here for our group on a regular basis ever since. Of course, we'll want to welcome their members to join us too at our usual game nights.

Do any of us want to consider carpooling up there? Post a note about it here in the event. Also, PLEASE, PLEASE feel free to contact me if you have any suggestions/questions/problems. Thanks! -- Randy

WED 29 Jun[masked]:50pm -- Watch for UPDATES. An email will be sent the day of the event (and maybe notices a day or two before) to the members who have RSVP'd YES or MAYBE. Please wait until the day of the event, and if you do not receive the email with location information, please use the phone number at the top to contact the host right away. PLEASE WAIT FOR THE ADDRESS TO BE EMAILED. Thanks! Randy

WED 29 Jun[masked]:50pm -- The RSVP limit was increased some months ago. The Barbara's Bunch events now have a seating limit of 22 instead of 17.  Limit/Waiting List will not be affected by Barbara's Bunch members.  BB members, please go ahead and RSVP.  I'll adjust the RSVP limit accordingly.

SAT 01 Oct[masked]:18 am -- JSYK (just so you know) -- SDBG has some "crossover" members who originated from Barbara's Bunch (and/or Phoenix Games Group or Gamesters as applicable). An RSVP here from a crossover member doesn't affect our attendance limit, as they're expected to be there anyway. If I see their RSVP, I just bump up our limit so they're not keeping another member on the waiting list.

      Thanks for allowing other "wait-listers"­ to take your place by changing to a NO. Remember for next time, though, that it's okay for most of our regular gaming events if you can't arrive right on time. Sometimes you can join a game in progress, other times you just wait for someone to finish a game.

      Some events are set up for a specific game, usually with a smaller group. In that case, of course, promptness is encouraged.

    I am a wait- lister and did not receive the destination address. Could somebody help with this matter?

    • Randy W.

      Hi Chris, I sent you an email -- hope you make it off the Waiting List -- looks like you're the last one there. This morning we had NINE players waiting. I'm surprised to see that they ALL got bumped up~! Wow! This is always a popular event and most of our players don't drop out! Anyway, again, good luck!

      April 6, 2013

    • Randy W.

      Wow, as quickly as that, I see that you've been bumped up. Good for you, have fun tonight!

    The location information was emailed at about 11:15 a.m. to the RSVPers and the WAITLISTers.

    If anyone else has RSVP'd since 11:15 or if you RSVP now with plans to attend, you'll undoubtedly be on the Waiting List with several members ahead of you.

    If you end up becoming a YES and DO NOT know where to go, you will have to contact one of the other attendees or me for the address.

    GAMES or NOT, Have fun tonight!

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.
