What we're about
Upcoming events (4+)
We have a team named the "Geek Mystique", come join our team and play some great trivia. If the meetup is full, still feel free to come and start your own team.
There are gift certificate prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
We use the gift certificates from our winnings to buy appetizers at the next trivia night. We limit these trivia nights to 10 people at the table to keep the team to a reasonable size.
FYI your phone has to be put away during the questions.
How the trivia works:
We are all on a team together at one table. Every other table is a another team. The host ask a question and our team collaborates to come up with an answer. Then we write down our answer and give it to the host. You are not allowed to have your phone out during questions. There are prizes for first second and third place in the form of gift certificates. We use the gift certificates we win to buy appetizers for our team at the next event.
Come play board games with us at Java Game Haus in Mandarin. Games usually start right at 6pm, so let us know if you are coming later.
Java Game Haus has great drinks and food and a huge collection of games. They charge a $5 a day fee for checking out games or you can buy a ln annual membership. Members can bring up to 4 friends.
Time to play some games and give some gifts. Bring a gift $15 or less. Bring a festive food to share. BYOB
Attire is Semi-Formal, wear a tie or even a suit, ladies wear a dress. This is a chance to look your best and get some great pictures.
We will start the night off with some games and then the white elephant gift exchange. If you are not familiar with it, here is a description.
Each person supplies one wrapped gift. The gifts are placed in a central location, and we randomly determine in what order we will take turns opening gifts. The first person opens a wrapped gift and the turn ends. On subsequent turns, each person can open a new present or can "steal" another person's unwrapped gift. When a person's gift is stolen, that person chooses another wrapped gift to open. The game is over when the last person has taken their turn. (we will have some twist) :-)
PARKING RULES!!! Only park on the side of the street with odd number houses. Make sure your car is facing the correct direction on the street. This means you will need to go all the way down to the end of the cul-de-sac and turn around to park. If our street fills up park on the street behind our house and follow the same guidelines. Message on meetup if you have questions.
Time to use your brain and have some fun playing strategy board games.
We will be playing board games that are little deeper in rules and usually only handle up to 4 players. We will have 4 tables set up so this game day will have a hard limit on people. Bring a snack to share, BYOB.
Most of the games played on these days are not a party games, most games have little to no luck involved, and are more strategy based. Come and don't be afraid to learn a new game.

PARKING RULES!!! Only park on the side of the street with odd number houses. Make sure your car is facing the correct direction on the street. This means you will need to go all the way down to the end of the cul-de-sac and turn around to park. Do not park directly across from another vehicle, this makes the street very thin. If our street fills up park on the street behind our house and follow the same guidelines. Message on meetup if you have questions.
