What we're about

Looking for fun Board Games events, we have them!
Want to meet friends to see Anime with? You found us!
Additionally we'll indulge in cosplay & make the most of Philly's limited kawaii culture. Plus Japanese restaurants, and whatever else sounds like fun, we're up for trying!

I try to keep events FREE as often as possible, and if we are at restaurants, we'll have individual checks, so just pay for what you order.

If you have questions or want to suggest an event, please feel free to message me through the MeetUp system.

see you soon,
David

PS. MeetUp is a terrific way to meet people live & in person, but Facebook seems to work better as a way to stay in touch between Events. So we started a "Boardgames & Anime & Kawaii Culture" Facebook group for us to be connected even if you miss some events. Here is the link, you are welcome to join!

Online Gaming (Catan & Other Games)! Thursdays & Mondays at 7pm

online at Catan Universe

We will now be meeting online to play Settlers of Catan at the Catan Universe app every Monday & Thursday, at 7pm. Many of you have already down-loaded the Catan Universe app and have joined our Guild, appropriately named "MeetUp Philly". We already have 20+ members. If you are already on Catan Universe but haven't joined our Guild, do it asap! Chat with us on Discord app, here's the Invite: https://discord.com/invite/5bWhekn?fbclid=IwAR2KJ8YUJvSsSlD4GeqqEW_DL7mGf3wmga27za5W3OcFPFutqUiWUBSpOEE log in to our Discord at 7pm and we'll divide into games & each game will move into their own Discord "Game Room" that we have set-up! REQUIRED TO GET STARTED DOWNLOADING IS FREE, GETTING STARTED IS FREE Catan Universe is an online app to allow people to play Catan. If you are familiar with the game already, that's great! After downloading the app... note: I play on my iPad, some people play on their phones, but you can also use Steam to play on your PC which is probably easier with the larger screen than a phone ...it begins with a short tutorial. I suggest familiarizing yourself with some of the functions as you get started. You can play some FREE GAMES with random opponents to familiarize yourself. Plus, you will NOT be able to join our Guild until you are at Level 2 (which is relatively easy). When you hit Level 2, which should only take a game or two or three, you can then join our Guild. Our Guild is "MeetUp Philly". Join early because I will need to "accept you". At 7pm I will be playing, and will NOT be able to accept you until games are finished, so join asap! ................... To join our Guild, you click on your profile and then click on Guild and do a search. Catan Universe is FREE to get started. After you are in, on the upper right side you will have "Scrolls" that are given to you for free when you start (you can purchase more, see their Store). I suggest learning to play & familiarize yourself with the setting in their Free Matches against random opponents. However, you will need to spend ONE SCROLL to play with us on Monday night. Each scroll allows you to play 4 player matches with random island settings for 24 hours. On Thursday, before 7pm, you should spend one scroll. Then at 7pm, in the drop down box for Matches, you will want to click on 3 or 4 players, and also click on Guild. This way we can all play against each other, Guild members vs Guild members. You can also wait to be invited to play by one of us as well. If its your first time, that may be easier. Friends, if you have questions you can post them below. However, if you have technical questions, I suggest going to the Catan Universe FB group and ask them there. Many of the people there have far more experience with the app than I do. Also, you should be aware that we are not the only people thinking of gaming online during COVID-19 quarantine. The past week or so Catan Universe has been hit with more than double their usual user traffic. So please be patient with their servers. If you are in games that freeze up, you can always leave and try to start again -- we can all play more than one game, in fact so far I have played 3 games each evening we've done this so far. Also, if you join us late, you can always try & see if you can get into a game. Most Catan Universe games seem to take about 25-40 minutes (turns have a time limit). So if you don't get into a game with us right away, you can try again in about 10 or 15 minutes & see if others have joined us late or if some games have finished & people want to play again. I hope I covered all the bases. If you are familiar with Catan Universe, please add comments below that will be helpful for newbies. see you online! David

Karaoke Sunday with Friends!

la fusion lounge

friends - our Karaoke events have been a blast, and several of you have been asking me "David, why only once a month?" ...So I am adding another Karaoke event for us on Sunday May 10th at La Fusion Lounge (located in the back of the 11th & Washington shopping mall). I'm excited! We will still meet at Lair KTV on the last Friday of every month, but sometimes more is better. Plus La Fusion Lounge has lots of food & drink specials, there is no song fee, and no cover charge! Additionally, its an easy walk to the Board Street subway line, and for those driving, the shopping mall has lots of free parking. We will have a couple of reserved tables just for our MeetUp group, making it easy to find us when you arrive. I'll add some the food & drink specials soon, but just wanted to get this Invite out to let everyone know! can't wait, see you there! David[masked]
