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 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" or "Maybe". 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 16 years. 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 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

SAT 09 Jan 2010 11:30pm -- 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

SAT 06 Mar 2010 11:30am -- The RSVP limit has been increased. The host was happy with the results last time, so for the time being, the Barbara's Bunch events will have a seating limit of 22 instead of 17.

SAT 01 Oct 2011 11:18 am -- JSYK (just so you know) -- SDBG has some "crossover" members who origininated 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.

SAT 01 Oct 2011 11:20 am -- The address email has been sent.  Remember to change your RSVP's if you're not able to attend.  If you did not receive the email, please contact the host at the number above.  You also may try contacting me, or any of the other attendees.  Thanks! --- Randy
