What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in playing board games in the Amsterdam area. I started this group because I'm looking for others to play these kind of games with. We are regularly scheduling events that bring together gamers all around the city.

PLEASE READ ALL THE INFORMATION BEFORE YOU SUBSCRIBE FOR SUNDAY GAME DAY

PLEASE READ ALL THE INFORMATION BEFORE YOU SUBSCRIBE FOR SUNDAY GAME DAY AT ROBIN FOOD Thank you :) During this Corona thingy, we can not host more than 16 gamers. Its frustrating for everyone if 16 people say they attend this event, and only 2 or 3 show up. Thats not enough people to play games and for surden not enough to keep the place open. To prevent this from happening again, I want to ask you to do the following: 1. subscribe via meetup 2. subscribe 2,50 to NL 72 TRIO[masked] to HB van Broekhuizen for the entrance fee 3. If there are more than 16 subscribers already, you can subscribe to the meetup to be on the waiting list. If you are on the waiting list, send me a meetup message with your number. I will let you know when there is a spot open. 4. Also, it would be nice if you could let me know from what time till what time you are coming… if you are not sure, just say you might stay all day. But if you are sure you will leave at 1700, there might be someone who could come at[masked]. Please notice also that due to this corona we got rules just like everywhere; keep your distance, wash your hands, sneeze in your elbow, etc. There is a list of rules hanging at the entrance. Take good care of yourself and the others 6. Just as important; mind our neighbours. Rather dont smoke outside and if you must, dont talk. We got some neighbours with sensitive ears we like to keep befriended. 7. There is always someone responsible around, like Anno, Roelof or the Green Irene kitchen team. If there is no one, we cancel the event and ill refund ofcourse your entrance fee 8. If there is no food from the kitchen, you can take your own food but it should be vegetarian; we dont want fish or meat in our place! If you do want food from the kitchen, letting us know before hand would be great! 9. Enjoy the games, feel at home at Robin Food and take good care of yourself, of Robin Food and of your fellow gamers! 10. Ah and please wash your own dishes if there aint no kitchen crew :) Additional information: Everyone who would like to play is welcome. You don’t need any experience in any of the games beforehand. People are bringing all sorts of games, abstract and thematic, light and heavy. We will gladly teach you the rules if you haven’t played the game before. You are also encouraged to bring your own games. There is a self service table in the kitchen where you will be able to purchase snacks and drinks during the day. From around 18:00 you can also get a vegetarian dinner, but if there is not, you can bring your own food, AS LONG AS IT IS VEGETARIAN . You don't need to show up at a specific time, game are starting throughout the day. Some people seem to have a hard time finding the entrance of the location. So to make sure you can actually find it, we have included a picture of the door below: Ring the bell right next to the door that has the label “Robin Food”. Everything we do at Robin Food is based on trust. We want to THANK you all for using the kitchen as if it was your home, paying entrance donations and for the food :) Very big thanks for that! Hope to see you all there!

Let's visit Spellenclub Vrij en Blij

Jeugdvereniging Vrij en Blij

*EDIT: We're keeping a close eye on the Corona developments. Our events will only go through if we feel we can guarantee the safety of the participants. At this time it feels too risky to encourage people to get together.* Hi all, The short description: every 2nd Saturday 13:00 at Vrij en Blij in Landsmeer, we have lots of games and it will be fun! Read on if you want to know more. Dirk has provided some guidelines on what to include when creating an event, so let's keep it simple and just go through them: What sort of games will you be playing? We're in for pretty much anything as long as it could be considered a tabletop game. We've even played a few of those games supported by DVD. We don't play computer games, won't allow gambling (though feel free to play for drinks) and would recommend against games that require very long explanations (though if you bring along the people to play with this might not be an issue). Feel free to bring your own games. Who is this meetup for? Pretty much anybody: we've had visitors aged 6 to 70. In general we tend to attract people between 18 and 40 years old, from all walks of life. (Nearly) everybody will be good enough at English to play with and about 50-60% of our 100+ games are either in English or language independent (we will certainly find a game you can play). Feel free to bring others, we have a pretty decent amount of space. If we're talking larger groups it'd be good to let us know in advance so we could arrange for extra space. Do you need any prior experience with the games that are being played? No. Obviously it would help, but we're always happy to explain one of our games (assuming we know its rules, admittedly we have a few games we haven't tried yet). The organizers tend to make sure that at least one of us is playing shorter, more easily explained games. Where will this meetup be held? This meetup will be held at a youth club in Landsmeer, called Jeugdvereniging Vrij en Blij and starts at 13:00 (we're not even 1 KM outside of Amsterdam). It's easily reached by bicycle, car (free parking) or public transport (only a few stops from Amsterdam Central Station!). We usually sit in the smaller room in the front of the building, but on occasion we might be relocated to the bigger downstairs room or to one of the upstairs rooms. We will make sure to announce it if we are not in our regular room. Is it allowed to bring your own beverages? Unfortunately no. In fact the same would apply to edibles too. The location has tea, coffee, a wide selection of soda's, various beers and even strong liquor for those so inclined. If you get hungry there are tosti's, chips, mars bars and similar snacks available. A regular soda would set you back €1.40 and other prices are similarly low. Anything that comes in through the bar goes towards the youth club, which lets us use their location for free in return. Does the event have an entrance fee? Officially we must charge a minor entrance fee. We've got visitors from all walks of life, some of whom may not have much to spare. We've decided to pay the entrance fee from the tip jar so that those who've got more can contribute more. We ask everybody to consider donating something, it's up to you to decide how much you want to give. (Anything donated beyond the entrance fees will go towards more games, or equipment we need for our events). People who regularly visit are expected to become members of the youth club. This will set you back 3.50 euro for a full year. Now that we're through the official stuff, most of all we want to have fun! There tends to be a very relaxed atmosphere during our events. Play whatever you feel like, want to chat instead? Go ahead! (We actually have a few people who when they visit seem to solely be there to chat). If you also have fun we have reached our goal. Hope to see you during our next event! Niels
