Upcoming events (5+)
Come and join us for open board gaming at Excelsior! They have a large gaming area to seat approximately 50 gamers in addition to a growing board game library that patrons may take right off the library shelf and play at-will. They have also dedicated their Sunday schedule for just this open board gaming event, so us board gamers will have the pick of the tables during the entirety of the event which happens to run the entire time the shop is open on Sundays. Attendees are welcome to bring in their own games or use games from the library. Bobby will also run game demos during the event in case you want to learn a new game or simply try before you buy. In case you are interested in purchasing the game from the demo session, Excelsior will offer 10% off the price of purchasing a new copy of that game that day on top of the 10% discount they are offer to all MBG members (for a total discount of 20% off). If for some reason they are out of stock of the demo game and must special order it for you that day, they will order it for you and allow you to take an additional 10% special order discount on top of the previous two discounts for a total discount of 30% off! Want to special order something that is not the demo game? Add the base TGA 10% discount and the 10% special order discount together for a total of 20% off any special orders. Nourishment: The shop carries various snacks and non-alcoholic beverages if you need something to snack or sip on while you game. For more substantial food, there are many eateries located within walking distance from the shop on Main Street. Parking: Excelsior has an agreement in place with the Jiffy Lube at 3 Powder Mill Road. Attendees may park in the lot behind the Jiffy Lube building. From there, it is a short walk across Powder Mill Road to the Excelsior's door on the corner of Powder Mill and Waltham Street, which is the 4-way intersection closest to Jiffy Lube.
Link to discussion chat room: https://discord.gg/pZVN5yA Q & A: Q. I have never played x-wing, can I still play? A. Yes, we will teach and supply ships and materials. 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/beverages in the pizza cup. 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. I really want to play XYZ game instead of X-Wing, can we do that? 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. The game room will accomodate more players doing other games. Just make sure you have game partners for that game or that you are fine in joining the x-wing game if no other players show up for the other game.
