We will be teaching and playing some modern board or card games. Newcomers welcome! Typically, every week we are playing games that are new to at least some of our players, so we always teach it; no past experience necessary.
Here are some recent games we've played: https://boardgamegeek.com/plays/bydate/user/Jeffrey%20Henning/subtype/boardgame/
The Dark Side Comics lets you bring in outside food for a fee ($1 for anything but pizza, which requires a $3 fee, to handle disposal and cleaning). You are encouraged to purchase bottled water, ice tea, soda, and snacks from the store. Typically, we've each had dinner before the meetup.
One group will start playing a game by 6:15 pm, with a second group starting a game at 7:00 pm sharp.
