Boardgame Potluck @ Alicia's!

  • Nov 17, 2013 · 3:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We want to ensure that everyone gets a chance to go to a boardgame potluck each month as they are the most popular event, so if you are already attending or are waitlisted on a boardgame event this month (hosting does not count as attending), please wait until Friday, November 15th before RSVPing to this one.

Gaming again at my place!

As many of you know, I have over 200 games listed here but please feel free to bring any you like as well.

I will provide beer & a variety of sodas. Please bring a snack to share.

If we're still playing when dinner rolls around we'll order pizza, chinese food, or some other fun thing (a bunch of places deliver here).

I will send my address to people who are confirmed on the Friday or Saturday before.

Note new policy: anyone who cancels less than 24 hours before the event without contacting me first will not be attending my events in the future. I have had lots of problems with people canceling at the last minute and that is just unfair to people on the waitlist.

    I'm coming by bicycle and have room for maybe one or two full-sized games in my backpack. If anyone has a request for me to bring a specific game, speak up. [Or if offered a ride, I could bring more.]

    Clash of the Gladiators [Draft & fight to the death]
    Coup d'Etat [3-4; Hearts-like trick-taking, with changing goal]
    Eurorails ["Crayon" series]
    Fresco [Artist themed worker placement]
    Grizzly!** [I don't have to outrun the bear -- I just have to outrun YOU!]
    Lingo [Language-themed party game]
    Manoover** [2-3; Giving orders to really dumb robots]
    Möbius World* [Connection game, info-sharing team play]
    Pandemic [Incl extra roles/events, optional bioterrorist]
    Road Rage* [It's like "Trouble" on steroids]
    Space Pigs [Fight for planets and political control]
    Tripoley [Includes aspects of Poker, Hearts, and Michigan Rummy]
    Zendo [Find the secret pattern; tile version]
    * My own invention.
    ** I didn't invent it, but I think my modification is an improvement.

      Okay, I feel better now. It's probably coming later today then.

    • Alicia H.

      Yes, sorry. Crazy week & busy but fun weekend! I'll send them now.

    Is it OK to show up late (5ish?) or should I cancel and wait for next month?

    November 12, 2013

    • Hilaryous

      Alicia, I have the same question. I assumed around 6 would be ok since the event is from 3-11:30, but after seeing 2 more people ask, now I'm not so sure. My gut is telling me that it's ok, but please let us know just to be sure. Thanks!

      November 16, 2013

    • Alicia H.

      Yes, that's ok since I know you're coming late. Thank you for letting me know. :)

    Oh, come ON!! The email saying there was a boardgame potluck came in at 1 and there were 11 spots left. When I got to my mail before 2 and RSVP'd, I was 4th on the waiting list! "Popular" hardly describes it!

      I was lucky in that I happened to be at my computer with email opened when the event listings started showing up. I now realize that I should have immediately signed up with a +10, and then tried my hand at ticket scalping!

      Karlo how much are those tickets you are selling?

      If you go to the main page (www.Meetup.com) and select under Calendar "I'm attending" - both attending and waitlisted events will be viewable.

      True, but that only workes if you go look at it. Frankly, I'm not going to check there once every single day just in case I'm on a waitlist for something tomorrow and forgot about it. I really need a push-reminder, like the emails they send to remind you about the events that you RSVPed "Yes" to.
