It's Our 200th Tuesday Playday!!!! YAY!!!

Since this is our 200th Tuesday - yay!!! ...

We will be going back to the games that started it all!!!! Scrabble, Sequence, Ticket to Ride (regular/America, someone who has it pleeeeeeze bring it - thanx), RA, 7 Wonders, Bugs, 6mintz (yes, I totally screwed up the spelling on that one), Rummikub (in particular "lightning speed in less than 10mins" by yours truly, Rob, Laurie, and Dena), and even Cribbage, kaerlaken poker, and Union Pacific (but not Power Grid)... And maybe this evening will find some of our "original" friends present like Morgan (the quiet one, and can you find and bring Robyn - and let her know she's missed *meep*), Yvonne (that's a made-up scrabble word! can you define that and put it in a sentence?), Jeannette (who works right next door, Dale (where _did_ you _go?!), and Vaughn (plus family - all are welcome this day).

Welcome to our weekly playgroup!

We are a fun group of people who enjoy getting together to act foolish, make jokes, talk trash, laugh, and play games. Because of the spontaneous nature of our group, we usually show up not knowing what we're going to play. Some days we end up playing just "our faves". The truth is that we'll play any game if someone brings it and convinces us we want to learn how to play it. It's not about what types of games we play, it's that we play games.

We have games starting at various times until 8 with people arriving at various intervals as well. (We are usually able to stay until 9:30 to finish games.)  There really isn't any reason that you can't get into a game no matter when you arrive.

 

Bonus Round at Denny's!

"Party on" til the "wee hours" of the morning! We have the back room from 8:30pm-ish, but really 9pm. We've been promised our own server - and she's "like totally awesome!" - we love her! (until we're settled, thanks to Manager Dave)

    My final thought goes out to PetePatrick. Many of these people, yes "originally my" friends, came out to play b.e.c.a.u.s.e it was Tuesday 200. It was _YOU_ who "bothered" to "count it out". Thank you! It turned out to be a superspendifulous party with record-breaking attendence... we did acknowledge person #42 :D

    I also played a game of TTR Nordic Countries with PetePatrick whom I bested by only a handful of points... he "asked for it." *silly giggles* Then we pkayed a rather quivk and complete game of 5 Crowns with one of the peeps from The College of Wooster - my alma mater!

    It was super-great to see some friends I don't often get to spend time with, and I wasn't able to play directly with many of them... ;'( YAY! Zto Sharon -cofounder- Jeannette, and Morgan! I did get to play one game of Scrabble with Sharon and Paul L whilst Rog got to enjoy the pleasure of 2 such games with Morgan & Jeannette. Only 3 games of Scrabble were played _all_ evening.

    Sorry I won't be able to make it, I'm just overwhelmed with planning our trip to Texas Thursday along with recent wedding-planning. A lot to do the next few days. I really prefer celebrating 202nd anniversaries anyways. :)

  • Michael

    I have two new games I would like to try out. 40 Below is a fun and simple card game. I also will bring The Palaces of Carrara, which I also enjoy very much.

    June 21, 2013

    • Patrick

      I've never tried 40 below... Palaces of Carrara... I would try that again. (and it's a "screen game"! Is there something wrong with me?! :) )

    Thanks for the invitation. I'll see how that week goes! Maybe I'll make it late. You tend to arrive at Denny's around 9?

    1 · June 20, 2013

    • Rob

      Yes, plus or minus half an hour. If you arrive before 9:00, best to check Panera first.

      June 20, 2013

    • Jennifer H.

      ooooh I _liiiike_ your new profile pic ;) We'll _definitely_ save a round of Sequence for you.. so that you can "quietly" make one of your majical chippie creations and I can "loudly" knock it over *tehee* or maybe not. ;P Or perhaps we can put 7 people around your Super(fluous) Scrabble board, and I can sit just to your left and look at all your letters and you can then flip them all around to try to confuse me.... *gregorious laughter*

      1 · June 20, 2013

  • Jennifer H.

    YAYAYAYAY! For Sharon and Jeannette! Maybe we can get Yvonne, Tina, and Vuaghn, and Morgan, and Dale... (am I forgetting anyone?!)

    June 13, 2013

    • Jennifer H.

      Yes, I'll have to "work on" locating and inviting: "Original" Mike (H); "Miss" Tina; and "Sir" William Goldstiein (he was kind enough to host a Sunday at his place -with reeeeeeally greeeeeat foooodstuffs sooooh nummmerz!- _and_ he got me to and fro two Tuesdays when I had a broken ankle and couldn't drive myself - I was quite pathetic really ;)

      ... also looking into the archives... October 6, 2009... Jenn commented: "Two different games were played: "Ticket to Ride - Nordic Countries" & Scrabble X3" TTR: Nordic Countries, huh? I love eating TTR: Nordic Countries for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! :D And let's not forget Rob's play-by-play when risking a tunnel... "Lucky... Lucky... ÆVIL!"
