S4OMN - Xmas Movies and Party (see event details)
Tis the season for the 4th annual New Braunfels Board Gamers Xmas Movie and Party, festive details below. Everyone is encouraged to come; regular gamers, gamers who have dropped out for a few months, and new gamers who have never attended an event. Come one and all. Ghost of Christmas Past: This is a potluck dinner (like we’ve all enjoyed before) so please bring a food dish or beverage for everyone to enjoy. Please us the message section to coordinate who is bringing what food/soda. Ghost of Xmas Present: This year the second Harry Potter movie and Kramous will be screened. Feel free to dress up as a character from either movie if you wish. Ghost of Xmas Future: Hosting a Grinch Exchange. Rules are simple. 1 - Bring a gift ($10-20) if you wish to participate. Alcohol, games, and geeky things are always a big hit. thanks 2 - Each person who brings a gift gets to draw a random card 3 - Take turns picking and opening a present, but beware the Grinches who are afraid to pick a random gift and nick yours. Of course you can take a random gift at that point or nick someone else's. Depending on the number of people participating will determine how many nickings make an item immune. 4 - No team-up shenanigans where you form an alliance with people to loop an item back to you immune, and none of that taking an item for someone else after the exchange is over. There are no friends, no spouses, no siblings in the Grinch exchange. Ghost of the Bonus: Having a Geeky Sweater Contest for fun and a prize (sweater can also mean hoodie or jacket, just not a t-shirt). Also a tree decorating, bring an ornament if you desire for the xmas tree. These will be ornaments that you feel says who you are. I’ll ensure these ornaments get onto the tree every year at future Xmas parties. As an example, for myself, the Kraken will live in more ways than one on the tree.

What we're about

ATTENTION: We now require a $5 annual (once a year) membership fee. (If you frequently show up to any of our meetups, then you will become EXEMPT from this fee). Any $ from dues will be applied directly to the annual fee that I pay to meetup.com.

NOTE: We get a LOT of people asking if this group is for new comers?!?! The answer is YES! We have new people show up all the time, many who have very little experience in 99% of the games out there. Our group loves to teach and we're all good at explaining rules etc. There are no rule lawyers in this group! Most of us are very extroverted as well. After all... socializing is key to enjoying a good board game session. We always are a very mixed group of guys and girls so no matter your gender or ethnicity this is a great place to mesh with other gamers.

DISCLAIMER: I feel it is my duty to describe the atmosphere of this meetup as it may not be for everyone. We can get loud and rambunctious. This is not a child safe zone and if you are offended by certain rated R words then this isn't the place for you. There are adults drinking and laughing and having a blast so if you're looking for a quiet library game setting, this isn't for you. However, in the almost five years I've been running these at my house I've never had to ask anyone to calm down or leave. Everyone that has shown up has been respectful of others and the games themselves.

This group is for laid back people who want to get together and play board games in the New Braunfels area. American and Euro games are welcome, as well as miniature games/ war games. I'm also a huge video game guy so for those interested we may have some video game meet-ups as well. Feel free to brings snacks and drinks are fine as long as you are responsible about it. Also, please be respectful of all the games and gamers. I'm very careful with my games and we all expect the same from everyone attending.
