The Time has Come! "Game Extravaganza" is Dead--Long Live "Son of Extravaganza"!!

I'm modeling this event after the recent and successful "Casual Game Night" events. I've moved it to Friday Night...which makes it great if your date likes games, if you didn't have time to make a date, or if you'd rather play games than date, or if "dating is irrelevant; we will play board games", or if you just...y'know...want to play board games until about 1AM.

There is no "Main Game" for this event, but I certainly welcome ideas or "oooh oooh oooh who wants to play 'Settlers of the Agricola Dominion in Carcassonne'?" The main idea is: "Any Game Will Do" Bring your favorite, or play one I have here....I have a variety, but I always love to learn more. For this event, we can play one or many games. Let's hear your suggestions :-)

Come by as early as 6:30, but the game playing may not start until 7:30. The first hour is to review rules (anyone who wants a refresher), eat dinner (bring your own, or buy it locally), and perhaps try some warm-up games. If you can, bring snacks or beverages to share....because it makes for a fun evening. If you want to "just show up," I must ask for a $5 donation to allow me to provide snackage on your behalf. If you're bringing home-made brownies or Lasagna or Pina Coladas or cupcakes or pizza some other fun & yummy treat or beverage to share, don't worry about the $5 donation.

Target completion time is about 1AM. The idea is a fun Friday Night playing games and hanging with cool people. Alcoholic beverages are welcome, and social drinking is A-okay, but do please be safe & sane and make sure I'll be happy to see you again next month.

So, here's the recap:
6:30 BYO Dinner, Learn the Rules, Warm-up Games
7:30 Start the longer game(s), other games continue
11:30 Still here? Rawkin'!!!
1AM "Let's just finish this one last game"
2AM Everybody else left, eh?
3AM I hope everyone is already in the place they wish to sleep tonight.

By the Way, I would like to encourage anyone who enjoys playing games and wishes to play more to consider hosting a small event like this, either in your home or any other venue that appeals to you. If you are interested in using this Meet-Up group to find players, let me know: I can make you an assistant organizer and you'll be able to create an event, put it in our calendar, and invite people to it. You will have control over RSVPs and everything you need to make your event successful and easy to manage. Just contact me (Paul++) to talk about it.

    Hey Paul, thank you! Let me know what would be a good time to come get my earring! Or I can get it at the next game night. I think my ears have a repulsive magnetic force that causes me to lose earrings.

    If anyone found a stray earring can you let me know? I may have lost it somewhere at Paul's

      Matt, I found them and left them on the front porch for you to get. That wasn't you that took them?

      As long as I'm not in the middle of converting grain into bread (that's Euro-speak), I'll be happy to defend my title...

    If I come, I'll bring Village - a newer fun & good game where your older family members can pass on to bring you honor in the form of VPs. Andy, we didn't played it totally correct last time. I'll show you.

      You're welcomed to take part. It plays up to & best for 4. There's just 1 rule - no open drinks & greasy/oil/sticky/wet food around my game. :)

      I once had someone spill salsa on the Well in my Agricola game, so I approve of this rule ... I will leave my guacamole burgers and cotton candy at home...

    that's quite a waiting list, but i'll add my name anyway, and if it's in my destiny to be there this Friday, i'll be bringing Equate. (we're clear on the rules now?). also will bring the giant dictionary in case there are takers for faux-balderdash, and i'd be thrilled to play mulitlingual scrabble in case there are any scrabblers who spell another language or 2.

    OMG (as you young people like to say) ... I just got the new Agricola Belgium deck yesterday and started "play-testing" it last night ... another winner, with exciting new occupations like "Big Bang Theorist," "Needlework Teacher" and "German-by-Choice" ... and yes, there is a card with Jean Claude Van Damme on it (the "Rough Baker" -- don't ask) ...you KNOW ya wanna play!
