Ballard Euro-Games, Cafe Mox on Tuesday nights
This meetup is now offered every week and moved a bit earlier to make parking and booth reservations a bit easier. Look for us on Tuesdays from 5:30 to 11:30! FAQs: May I be late? Sure, you may plan on arriving later, we start 3-5 player games every 30-45 minutes. Should I come if there is a waitlist? Well, Cafe Mox gets really crowded by 6:30, so you might want to connect with someone arriving earlier to save a seat for you. Otherwise, go for it. What kind of games do you play? We play all kinds of games but tend to prefer strategic and euro-games. We tend to leave the party games to the Thursday night crew. Cafe Mox has a library of hundreds of games for us to pick from and you can always bring one of your own and show us why it rocks. I'm new to this leisure renaissance of board-gaming, will you be patient and inclusive? On our best days, we offer practice games. If you are new to all this, come on in and hang-out, kibbitz, or experience real-time strategy coaching. I'm a game designer, can I ask your crew to play-test? Sure, we can also accept sponsorship, bring your games to several evenings, fill out surveys, or whatever you can talk the people into. Can I practice my tournament-winning strategies on your innocent victims (I mean 'experienced gamers' - koff, koff)? You could try out that backwards strategy you've been meaning to find suckers for, only don't be surprised when we find a gap and shut you down. (Ahem) I mean, yes, come practice with us.
