Next Meetup

Board Games at Swarthmore Borough Hall
Board gaming. Friendly, mostly recently created "Eurogames," such as Ticket to Ride, Carcassonne, and Settlers of Catan, led by Jim Moskowitz. Aimed at adults, but kids are welcome. Feel free to bring your own or just play the ones that are there. Rules will be taught; no prior experience necessary. ----------------- The person running this event is not currently a member of our group, but it is open to anyone in the area. I'll try to keep up with any potential cancellations for things like holidays for you. It currently appears in the Swarthmorean newspaper, and on the site Nextdoor. If anyone attends and has information relevant to updating this event, please share it. You can find Jim Moskowitz on Nextdoor if you'd like to be on his game e-mail list, or join the Facebook group to make sure you're getting the most current updates about location changes or cancellations.

What we're about

Public Group

This is a book club for people who love sci-fi, fantasy, young adult, historical fiction, and possibly other kinds of books. It's also a place for nerding out. If you love Doctor Who, Star Trek, superheroes, video games, board games, or other fun things like that, join us! I'm starting this group to find some people to meet monthly to talk about books, but would love it if we also build a community for enjoying all kinds of nerdy past times.

• I have twin 2.5 year olds, who will be sleeping upstairs. We don't have to whisper, but we can't be boisterous.

• I have 2 large cats and a kitten that will try to love you. I have benedryl here if needed, but if you're badly allergic, then you might be miserable.

• My house is a split level set back from the road, right where there's a bend; which is also where the road name changes, and both of my neighbors have the same house number. I promise my house exists.

• There should be plenty of street parking on the opposite side of the road for those of you that will drive.

• There's always a little blue bucket in the living room somewhere, usually on the shelf where the tv is, for donations to help with the costs of being a meetup host. These are entirely voluntary and NOT required, but just a heads up because I know it gets awkward if you suddenly see someone give me money and you feel like an ass because you don't know what's up. I hate that feeling. I don't keep tabs on who gives what or when, but I do try to keep the total tally accurate online ( just so you all know I'm not profiting or something.

Otherwise, just come, talk about the book, and have fun. We don't prepare speaking topics or anything like that, just sit around the living room and chat. It's okay if you didn't finish the book as long as you're cool with spoilers. Hang out, have fun.
