What we're about

This group has many types of activities: Boardgames, Karaoke, Hikes, Dance, Theatre Outings, Sport Events, Metaphysical (Meditation, Tantric Learning, Reiki, Massage, etc.), Poker, Sharing Cooking & Baking, Movie Night, Improv Night, and Anything else you suggest.

Really! Suggest something!

And when it comes to Board Games...I am often asked "What kind of Games do you play?"
A pretty accurate answer to "What kind of board games do we play" is:
"Euro-Strategy games, as found on BoardGamesGeek.com."

That is not necessarily the most helpful answer, tho. The actual range of games vary from super-simple (learn in 5 minutes, play in 10 minutes) to very involved (learn in 45 minutes, play in 4 hours, takes a dozen games before you really "get it")...So, chances are if you think to yourself "I like playing board games"...you'll probably find someone here who likes what you like :-)

***Check our Calendar!***

There's so many events per month, it's the only way to know what's coming up! We're all busy professionals, normal people, who want to make the most of our time away from work. We want to do more with our evenings than just sip a drink and check out the cuties in a bar. We want to take a break from trying to hook-up and just have fun together. Since we're not focused on trying to hook-up, single people and coupled people and even N-tupled people can freely join in and we'll all enjoy greater fun.

Many Events are in private home venues, for a very relaxed and comfortable interaction. These events include food, drink, and always interesting people.

If you have an interesting event you'd like to run or host, please contact me (Paul++) and we'll find a way for you to run an event.

Note to new people: Welcome! If you don't know many games, don't worry. We are glad to teach people the games we love to play. We are very friendly. :) We have a core of regulars and lots of fun games to share. One important thing: ** Please do not come early! ** It would be best if you could please come after 7:05. We look forward to meeting you and playing with you! Games, games and more games! We can play party games, Eurogames, card games, strategy games, dice games, camel games, etc. Bring your games (if you have some and want to bring them) :), yourself and a food item (dinner-ish preferred or snack-type) to share. You may bring alcohol if you wish. I'll have sodas, some snacks and some other dish I imagine. :) ** When you know what you're going to bring, leave a comment telling us, so people will have an idea of what's going to be here, in case they need help making a decision. **

Games Night at Elise's house Friday 7pm

Location visible to members

Hi! I have a regular game night at my house on third Fridays. Games played usually include more casual social games such as Rack-O, Pictionary as well as Red November, Atlantis, Ticket to Ride. I usually make some food like chili or lasagna. It will be kid friendly as I have an 11 year old who would love to have some kids to play with. Bring snacks to share. It might be helpful to have a couple more folding chairs if we get a big crowd. Hope to see some of you here! ~Elise

San Jose Stress and Pain Reduction Class and Workshop

I will teach you about the true source of your stress, how to reduce stress, and how to react differently to the unpleasant events that you experience. I will help you to see that you are more powerful than your emotions. Then, we will practice the technique that you have just learned. You will practice letting go of the barriers to your success and you will let go of unpleasant emotions. Students often report that the pain has "melted away." I will give Reiki to students as we practice what we have learned. Some students become so relaxed that they fall asleep. I hold the class no matter how few students attend. You might get a private session if no one else shows up. No fee at this time. If Tuesday nights are difficult, you could suggest a time and date and if I am available, I will post an extra Meetup event. I am retired so I could hold the class almost anytime. [masked] Wheelchair friendly. Please call if you need a ramp over the single step (six inch step). I have been researching what causes stress and what to do about it for over thirty years. I wrote a book and began selling it in 1992. I edited it and reprinted it three times. I have been teaching Stress reduction classes for about ten years. I have helped many people with stress issues over the years. I hope that you will join us soon.
