We will be starting at 11:00 am, and ending around 5:00 pm. Mystic Celt has a full menu and bar for food and drink. They are steps from the brown line "Southport" stop, and there is generous metered parking on Southport and free parking 1-2 blocks away until 6 pm.
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 Pandemic Puerto Rico Carcassonne 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).
