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.

    Hi, I would like to join this group. Sorry to find there's no room for me tonite, would have loved to come meet new people, laugh and have fun. I live in Bay Park and like cards, board and party games.

      I live in Bay Park, too. I think next Saturday's Phoenix Games will be at my house. It should be confirmed in the next day or two.

    The email has been sent out. Members on the Waiting List should watch for emails. If anyone drops out, the next on the Waiting List will be notified automatically that they have been moved to the YES list. Have fun tonight!

    Maybe I'll see some of you at GWOTS in the Park!?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
