I'm announcing the April meetup also, one month ahead, I want to see if we get more people out this way.
Everyone is invited to come join in another day of learning and playing fun boardgames. This is an open boardgame event, meaning the participants choose what games to play and there is not a pre-selected game that is the only one allowed at the event.
We can stay until the store closes, most likely 10:30 pm.
Located at Jetpack Comics at 37 N Main St in Rochester. Saturday April 19th, from 2 pm to closing. There is free parking on both sides of Main Street, one way in front of the store, or in the Union Street parking lot behind the store.
Please come any time during those hours. If you plan to come after 5 pm please let me know in advance you are coming, because I sometimes pack it up early depending on attendance. We have room for probably about 6-8 people even with the other card games going on on Saturdays; if I start getting a larger group I will have to make arrangements with the store.
Children are welcome as long as they are old enough to join in the games; I have several games that are suitable for children 8 and up. The store allows us to eat and drink in the gaming room (lots of nearby businesses sell food), but asks us not to bring large drink containers such as 2-liter bottles and gallon jugs.
What's on the agenda for this event: I'd like to play one of my classic Euro games again, Carcassonne or Settlers of Catan (with several add-ons for Carcassonne. I have a few other games I can bring also, and the store also has other games we can borrow or you can bring something as well. I may have one or more new games by April, see the comments below.
Future events: This event will continue to repeat on a monthly basis, so stay posted. I plan to do this event again on the third Saturday of each month, so keep these dates open: May 17, and June 21, 2014, same time and place.
