Some Extra Info About Our Group
Our members are from all walks of life, but one thing we have in common is our love of game playing.
At least 4 dozen games are available at each meetup, and we're happy to have members bring their own games, too.
We meet approximately every two weeks at an all-night diner from 6:30 to whenever we call it a night. We also occasionally host potluck game nights at willing members' homes.
You are not obligated in any way to order anything at the diner. However, we do collect a $2.00 fee per person per meeting attended in order to use their back room and occupy their wait staff for several hours; this fee is in addition to any gratuity you may leave personally for your waitstaff. Other donations to offset the cost of Meetup.com fees and add to our game supply are appreciated but not required.
We do not have any strict rules about attendance, lateness, or leaving early--if all you can do is half an hour, then we're happy to have your for that half hour.
We generally play by the game's rules unless a consensus is reached to use some "house rules". We are competitive but kind and have many players who are happy to teach new games.
