Contact me [Jose (http://www.meetup.com/MetrowestBoardGaming/members/6729441/) (click the link, then click "Message")] for the address. General board gaming. We have a good library of widely played board games, and people normally bring many more of them. We regularly run three to five tables of board games - this provides enough variety. It is normal for people to get two or three games a session. The game night format was inspired by Unity Games (http://www.unitygames.org/) and the event is very casual and structureless. If you have gone to one of the meetup's quarterly events you will know. Link to discussion chat room: https://discord.gg/wu6HTPM Q & A: Q. What types of games are played? A. Any type of board game. Browse through the most popular games at http://boardgamegeek.com/ and that should give you an idea. Q. Until when do you play games? Can I arrive later than 7pm? A. Until the last game of the evening ends, usually past midnight. Yes, you can arrive later than 7pm, but you may have to wait for a new game to start if you do. Q. Should I bring something? A. If you want, bring a game you feel comfortable teaching. There will be pizza and sodas served. Feel free to bring snacks or beverages to share or chip in $5 to $10 for the pizza/sodas in the pizza cup. Q. I really want to play XYZ game, can we schedule it? A. Some people ask for interest in a particular game on the event comments below. This may be the way to make sure you get to play the game you want. Q. Where do I park? A. The driveway is the obvious spot, but eventually it will fill up on most of these game nights. Some people do park on the street. The soccer field parking across the street is a safe option and is the suggestion the town police gave me when I asked about overflow parking.
FRAGS (FRAmingham GamerS) meets at my house in Framingham on Thursdays. I have been running this event for over 30 years. I have hundreds of games, a full-size pool table, and 15-seat movie theater for PS3 games including BUZZ and ROCK BAND, in addition to movies. This event is open to all members of Unity Games, Metrowest Gamers, MENSA, Meetup, and others. On a typical week, there are 12-15 people and at least 3 games going - usually one heavy, one medium to light, and one party type game.
Open gaming in the game room of Longview Place Apartments in Waltham from noon until the gaming fizzles out on the 3rd Saturday each month! Do not park in the driveway circle! Park behind the apartment buildings. Delivery or food runs will happen at some point if needed. Discuss which games to play, carpooling, and other plans ahead of time in the event's Discord chat room: https://discord.gg/P5xUcQq
