Crossover Event • This is an event hosted by Guy (https://www.meetup.com/Lets-Hang-Out-Social-Activities/members/351832/) I just went to Guy (https://www.meetup.com/Lets-Hang-Out-Social-Activities/members/351832/)'s MeetUp, and it is a nice small group that could use some help from a little bit more exposure; so I thought I'd help them out & cross-post their event here. So if you've any questions, I'd either PM Guy (https://www.meetup.com/Lets-Hang-Out-Social-Activities/members/351832/), or post to his MeetUp or Facebook groups... but here is a copy of the details from his event: We are getting together to play board and card games on Tuesday nights at Jim Dandy's in Rutherford. We play all sorts of game (depends on what people bring) and we encourage everyone to bring games if you have them. We play everything from Yahtzee to Cards Against Humanity, to Munchkin to Pandemic to Betrayal at the House on the Hill. We have ages ranging from 15 to 72. All are welcome and we always have a lot of fun. No egos. We meet in the back room of Jim Dandy's and play from 6 pm to closing (and about a half hour after than because the crew at Jim Dandy's rock!) We are doing this meeting in partnership with the Bergen County Geeks & Nerds Social Group. Thanks, George a.k.a. Jorge Loco PS RSVP isn't required, but it'll definitely help them out!

DETAILS HERE ... please click here & take a moment to read! Thanks! Ext2-v020+ • Fun & Games MeetUp!... Welcome back Fun Gamers! First, a sincere thank you all for joining our MeetUp Group, "Fun & Games". 😎 A HUGE thanks to Chris-Bob (https://www.meetup.com/Fun-And-Games-Meetup-Tenafly-Northern-New-Jersey-NJ/members/200543755/) for stepping up & becoming an Event Organizer for Fun & Games on Thursday Nights!!! 😎 New Place, New Time, New Format & New Friends too!!! This is now our Thursday night series & IHOP location is every Thursday !!! • If you can make it, I'd really appreciate you stopping by!!! Kevin & Pat, IHOP's Manager & Asst Manager for the location, have booked us for all the Thursday's this July!... • So let's make this a success, and help me get the word out!!! Should you see Kevin & Pat, I ask that you thank them for supporting our group at IHOP... as well as thanking IHOP for being so gracious in allowing us the space for our group! I'm hoping this new location make it easier for our southern FunGamers™! [[ NOTEs -- ••• ••• ••• New Place IHOP (https://goo.gl/maps/H2aLJutGrY32) >>> 680 Route 3 W, Clifton, NJ 07012 (If you're like me, and coming from the south, you'll have to U-Turn at the Linwood Ave West Exit to get to the "west side"...) ••• ••• ••• New Time 6:00 PM until essentially closing time (~10 PM) ... && then it's off to Shannon Rose to play some more ... (98 Kingsland Rd, Clifton, NJ 07014 (https://goo.gl/maps/kSg1DgwzRPT2)) ••• ••• ••• New Format New Place == New Details ... because we don't want to "impose" on our FunGamers™ a requirement to purchase food/drinks, we will need to be understanding and patient with IHOP staff (as they won't be adding a dedicated server for our group.) This may change if we start routinely having 20+ FunGamers™ and the majority voluntarily make purchases; but especially in the beginning, lets show them we're a great group to have! With the newcomers to the group... and we now have three (3) regular days (in four locations); I have on occasion received a few common questions, like this is cool, but do we play this ? I would say, your best option is to read our handy dandy FAQ ~ (-8 To Game, or not To Game... but What is the Question?... 8-) • http://bit.ly/ToGameOrNotToGame (note: this will open a browser window, which is how you can view all of our discussion posts... ☻) ••• ••• ••• New Friends New Friends are great... who doesn't like new friends?... but in order to get new friends, we need to keep in mind that the IHOP location is kid friendly... not that we'll be having kids play, we're still primarily an adult group (with the occasional mature teen) however, we must be considerate of the passerby's... so I ask for you to be observant of your language & help others do so (in a friendly manner. ;-) Also, at least initially, the ppl there are not expecting the F&G Invasion... so we need to be friendly and answer questions and encourage them to participate... maybe even offer to let new ppl play "with you" while you teach them and/or give up your seat so they can play... I know I will. :-) Finally, this is in a slightly different geographical area... so for those of you who have friends you might have gamed with at Gamer's Gambit, I'd ask for you to maybe shoot them a quick text, call, e-mail, MeetUp Msg, or F&G Smoke Signal™ and let them know about our new Thursday night! -- NOTEs ]] Come & have some fun!!! I look forward to seeing you all there!... FYI for the new meeples, we're averaging a solid 20 ppl per week now (just not everyone RSVPs...) Speaking of RSVPs, I know MeetUp has a cut-off for RSVPing if you decide to show late so please don't let that hold you back... I'd love for you to all RSVP, but it's definitely not a requirement (the only requirement is to come and have fun!) Please help us grow!... please share our group on Google+ & Facebook! There are "high-res" photos available if you want to print a flyer for work and/or school! Thanks, George a.k.a. Jorge Loco PS RSVP isn't required, but it'll definitely help me out!

(-: Fun&Games @ Panera [recurring event ~ 2PM normal, check comments 4 upd] ;-)

Please click here for new details... Thanks... This is mainly a board and card games group. RC158+-Version Fun & Games MeetUp!... Welcome back Fun Gamers! First, thank you all for joining our MeetUp Group, "Fun & Games". [[ IMPORTANT REMINDERs -- Be friendly, invite friends, & have fun !!! ☺ Hello Everyone, This is George (https://www.meetup.com/Fun-And-Games-Meetup-Tenafly-Northern-New-Jersey-NJ/members/9024497/), as the founder, I have had the pleasure of building this vibrant gaming community in NJ for the past three years. Please have fun, but help our event organizers (EOs) in the following ways: • RSVP Early ~ this is very important for encouraging "new" people to join (it's better to RSVP & not show, than to show & not RSVP) • Greet New Members/Visitors ~ whether or not I'm there or not, it's really important that within 30 seconds a new person is greeted... important that you stop playing your game & check in with them... also, help them understand how things work, and point them to a group of free gamers looking to start a game ||or|| make an announcement to the group that we have a new gamer & ask how long people have. • Offer Up Your Seat at a Game ~ if a new person comes, and during the greeting/announcement, if there is no open game or game ending in <10 min; please offer up your position at a table & teach them how to play your game. • Clean Up on Time ~ help the organizers to return all the tables to their starting positions & clean up all the trash (even if it's not yours) Thank you very much & I hope to see you as much as I can! George (https://www.meetup.com/Fun-And-Games-Meetup-Tenafly-Northern-New-Jersey-NJ/members/9024497/) -- IMPORTANT REMINDER ]] [[ GENERAL INFO (for new ppl) -- Arun, Panera's General (head) Manager for the location, has booked us for the remainder of the Sunday's this year for 3PM until close... • yes, you read it right, the "normal" schedule will be 3PM to close! Should you see Arun, I ask that you thank him for supporting our group at Panera ... as well as thanking Panera for being so gracious in allowing us the space for all this time over the past two and a half years! We need to be careful with how we use the space at Panera Bread, as we definitely do not want to lose the space. The biggest thing we need to do is end on-time or early... please help the event organizer and/or myself to end your game on-time (& this includes cleanup as well.) Thanks. • Please play all games in the reserved room; we're not permitted to play games outside of the room (at least for the foreseeable future) • In order to save space in the reserved room, please eat your food outside of the room. • No flyers are permitted to be posted on the doors, they must go inside the room --or-- on the bulletin board (this is mostly for the event organizers). Note: This is different than how we operated pretty much all the weeks in the last three years, but it is the new norm. If you see one of us who is playing games outside of the room, either: #1) please ask them to immediately clean up the game & move inside the room --or-- #2) please tell Jon or Kenny, and they'll ask them to immediately clean up the game & move inside the room.

Monday Night Board Gaming ~ new (hopefully permanent 🤨) location Houlihan's 😊

• Welcome to Monday Night Board Gaming This location has bounced around a while since Oak Ale House closed, and while we've been grateful to both River Edge Diner, 201 SportsBar & Poitin Still for hosting us; they weren't a good enough fit for one reason or another. After speaking with the GM & Floor Manager at Houlihan's, I think we may have finally got a new home (but I won't jinx it with the per___... word 😥) We'll have the upstairs room as long as it's not rented out, and it'll be exclusive depending on the number of ppl we have attending the event & whether or not a large party shows up. Keep in mind, we're not paying a cover & it's free / by donation to attend; so as usual we need to be our normal 'accommodating' selves with regards to the wait staff - as they won't be dedicating a server to us (but then again, there won't be a minimum order; though I do ask that you consider buying a drink and/or appetiser.) FYI, we're an inclusive group, and all are welcome! We are averaging about 40 people per week across our events now (not everyone RSVPs... 😲) MeetUp has a cut-off for RSVPing, so if you decide to show late, please don't let that hold you back... It would be nice if you all RSVP, but it's definitely not a requirement. Please help us grow!... please share our group on Google+ & Facebook! Thanks, George 2.0 (https://www.meetup.com/members/9024497/) PS Don't forget to celebrate life... PPS A shout out to Won for suggesting I take a look at the location!!!
