What we're about

Like board games? All types? We do! We will play cooperative (i.e. Flash Point, Shadows Over Camelot) , euro strategy (Terra Mystica, Power Grid), dungeon crawler (Betrayal at the House on the Hill, Descent), party type (Cash n' Guns, Resistance), deck-building (7 Wonders, Race for the Galaxy), classic (Acquire, Risk), worker placement (Caverna, La Havre), card (Bang, The Great Dalmuti, Dixit) and so much more. Even if you have never heard of one of these come and let us get you addicted to new and old games that are fun and challenging - bring old friends with the hopes of meeting new ones. Five open tables, a pool table and a dart board are ready. So... what do you want to play?

*SUSPENDED* 3rd Fri Games Night at Rick and Marnie's

Rick's place

This is my recurring monthly games night (note, this event is cross-posted to other places, there are people coming even if none of this crowd is :-) ) Note that Meetup no longer lets me update attendance numbers; if you don't respond it now looks like no one shows up. Please see link http://www.sinister.net/boardgaming.htm for more information. We usually provide chips and drinks. If you'd like to bring something feel free, but it's optional. We try to keep the more social/loud games isolated in the den so they're not quite so disruptive, and strategy games upstairs. This is not really a good event for those under the age of 14 or so. We have a friendly standard (read large) poodle . He can sound ... noisy ... as you're coming up to the house. If you're allergic to dogs, he's hypoallergenic! Please park on the street, not in the driveway.

Battlestar Galactica: the Board Game (Online)

Online event

***IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING PLAYING ONLINE*** All of the software used for BSG game night are free to download and use, but please do so ahead of time as it will take 15 minutes or so. Games will be played on the VASSAL program and voice chat will be hosted on Discord. Additionally, Discord will provided a message board function and serve as a repository of tech support information for BSG game night. Instructions on how to download VASSAL will be on the Discord server. Discord can be downloaded at www.discord.com. A download for windows button is immediately available, but you can click the download button at the top of the page to be taken to a page with download links for a variety of operating systems. (Discord can be used in browser, but downloading the client is more convenient.) You will need to create an account. Once you have an account, you will need to join the Battlestar Galactica Game Night server. If you are in client, click the plus button on the left (when you mouse over it, it should say “add a server”), click join a server and copy and paste in the following link: https://discord.gg/jTydWQP . A new button should appear on the left of your screen that should be the server. If you click on it, it will take you to the server. For those on the web browser, you can enter the link above in your navigation bar. ***Regular Description*** Greetings from the Colonial Fleet. Please join me every fourth Friday of the month for a game of Battlestar Galactica. Whether you are a seasoned veteran of the Cylon War or if this would be your first time playing the game, you are welcome to play. I, or another experienced person, will provide instruction for whoever needs it. Battlestar Galactica is semi-cooperative game in which the players serve on the Galactica, however, some players are secretly working against humanity as Cylons. For a full description, please use this link (http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_minisite_sec.asp?eidm=18&esem=1) to go to the publisher's website. A typical game lasts three to four hours, so please expect to stay the entire time and only complete one game at this event. Colonial Fleet regulations require that you RSVP in advance and arrive on time; those who fail to do so may not be able to play. (You are welcome to RSVP with guests, but you need to confirm that your guests will come.) If your plans change and you cannot come to the game, please change your RSVP. Also please try to avoid last minute changes to your RSVP (I understand that sometimes there may be emergencies); if you want to come but do not know if you can, please wait to RSVP until your plans are well defined. Furthermore, please do not bring infants or children to the event. Players who also have to care for their children's needs could slow the game down considerably. Thank you for your understanding. I have set a total limit of six players for this event, but you may notice fewer spots on this meetup. This event is also being hosted on another meetup and the spots are evenly distributed, but if a waiting list develops on one, I will reallocate spots if I can. Also if you have a copy of the Battlestar Galactica Board Game and are willing to bring it, please message me in addition to your RSVP. I will then increase the limit to 12 and set up another table so another game could run simultaneously. Please message me with any questions or concerns. Help me destro-, I mean, save the Colonial Fleet. So say we all.
