Board Games @ Your Local Game Store

This is an age 21+ event. Participants should bring any games they are interested in playing and I encourage using the message board to setup games and participants in advance. This meetup event is a great opportunity to meet the newest members of the Queen City Game Club as well as to introduce all members to new games. A selection of games will be available and feel free to bring your own favorites as well. Knowledge of the rules of a particular game is not required in advance to participate. It is assumed that the person bringing the game will need to spend some time teaching the rules to everyone else participating. The event will run approximately 3 hours.

    Is the store going to be open today? There are a few snow advisories for this area tonight.... Can anyone confirm?

      Just confirmed with my favorite meteorologist :) Nothing but wet roads until well after we're done!

    I would be interested in trying Catan, I just purchased the Star Trek version but haven't been able to try it yet. Haven't ever played the base game, but have been meaning to.

    We are going to try to make it regardless of the weather, but may head out early if things start getting worse.

    I'm going to bring Noblemen (http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/128931/noblemen) and Fleet (http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/121297/fleet) if there are any takers. Both are relatively recent additions to my collection that I need to take for a spin!

    • Todd M

      Sure! We need at least 3. Barring getting snowed out, I'm sure we manage it :)

      Snowed out...haha that's funny. Now the cold nasty rain may keep people away but not I. I would be interested in this game too. I now remember it TMG saying it's been a big hit for them

    I have Carcasonne, Settlers of Cataan, Munchkin, Guillotine, Risk (old school). Anyone interested in any of those?

    January 17, 2013

    • Mike C

      I'm bringing X-wing minis, but I'd love to try out Carcasonne some time.

      January 17, 2013

  • Glenn N.

    I will be there and my plus one is my son Steven (if you want to have name badges ready. :>)

    January 15, 2013

  • Mike C

    This will be my first Meetup also. I could use a name tag.
    If anyone is interested in playing/learning I can bring the X-Wing miniatures game.

    My +1 is my wife Amy

  • Kim M

    I'd love a name tag. I've found seeing everyone's name tag has helped me with names. Thank you for doing this!

    Doing the standard QCGC badges for this meetup. If you have a +1, let me know names if you would like them to have badges.

    Hey, my wife and I are thinking of attending and curious if this is a good "starter" meetup for the group and whether there are types of games we should/should not bring.

    We are still new to the hobby, but some games we could bring would be the new Marvel Legendary Card game (super heroes meets Dominion), Mage Knight and Titan which are three of the games that have been getting a lot of playtime in our household so would be something we could show others.

    Course, we mostly just want to meet others in the hobby and would be more than happy to just play other games as well :)

    January 14, 2013

    • Marty C

      Just to follow up...we consider all of our large events as 'starters' for anyone. Even if they have never ventured into the hobby. We are all about introducing new players to the hobby and growing the community. All regular attendees are very friendly and willing to play and teach anything.

      January 14, 2013

    • James A.

      Okay, we will try to come by and bring Legendary :)

    Are all the meetings always 21+? I have an eighteen year old son who likes to play. We are new to the area so trying to meet fellow gamers in the area.

    Does one have to RSVP? I may try to find the place Thursday night but being so new to the area - not sure how to get everywhere yet. :>)

    January 13, 2013

    • Glenn N.

      Follow-up: You are saying it is alright to take my 18 year old son this Thursday? It is fine either way but if he is allowed he can help me navigate.

      January 13, 2013

    • Marty C

      Yes, that would be fine

      January 14, 2013

  • Erik

    If anyone is interested in a cheap ($10), unopened copy of The King in Yellow expansion to Arkham Horror, let me know.

    I am loving the location of the new venue

    FYI, Your Local Game Store has snacks and nonalcoholic beverages, but nothing substantive enough for dinner. Eat beforehand or pick up some food on the way there.

    Tuesday nights do not work for me, so I am happy to see something on a different evening.
