We will be starting at 11:00 am, and ending promptly at 5:00. The Atlantic Bar & Grill (http://www.theatlanticbar.com/info.php) has a full lunch/dinner menu and bar for food and drink. They are .6 miles from the brown line "Western" stop, and there is generous metered parking on Lincoln Ave and free parking 1-2 blocks away on side streets.
Outside food and drink is not allowed.
We play various strategy boardgames, also called "Eurogames" or "designer games". If you aren't familiar with that terminology, you may recognize a few of the most popular titles, like Settlers of Catan, Dominion, 7 Wonders, Carcassonne, Puerto Rico, Agricola, Ra, and Race for the Galaxy.
You'll have a broad choice of games to learn and play because several members usually bring lots of different types of games ranging from "light and frothy" to "heavy and thoughtful", with many choices in between. Most members are very happy to teach you any game you want to learn. If you wish to bring a game, please feel free! Keep in mind that generally games are open to everyone to use, so only bring copies that you feel comfortable sharing with others.
We will ALWAYS bring the following "core" games for players to use:
• Settlers of Catan
• 7 Wonders
• Stone Age
• Puerto Rico
If there is a specific game that you would like us to bring, please send Beth (organizer) a message or mention it in your RSVP. You can check out our game collection here (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/hobbes_inc?own=1&subtype=boardgame&ff=1).
FREE GAME GIVEAWAY:
Once per Meetup, attended by one or both of the organizers, Beth and John will raffle one, new, in-shrink game to any member that attends that Meetup. You need to arrive before 2 pm to put your name in the raffle and the drawing will be at 4 pm. You need to be present to win. What game we will bring is a surprise, but we have a wide variety of types, lengths, themes, and some special goodies that will appeal to nearly everyone!
