Thanksgiving Potluck & Board Games
Let's have some fun!! Choose one or more: A) Come for board games at 1 PM. We usually play games like "Ticket to Ride," "Splendor," "Transamerica," "Rack-O," "Cable Car," "6 Cubes," "Take a Chance," "Blokus," and games brought by you and others. Please bring your favorite game to share with us (Optional). B) Join our Potluck at 5:00 PM. I usually supply veggies with rice angel hair spaghetti. Please, feel free to bring any food that you like. I am vegan and have food allergies, so I won't be able to taste your tasty dish if it contains cinnamon, wheat, soy sauce (it contains wheat), green bell peppers, water cress, parsley, chocolate, meat, dairy, or eggs. Raw fruits and veggies are great! C) Come just for board games after 6:00 PM. We usually play games like "Ticket to Ride," "Splendor," "Transamerica," "Rack-O," "Cable Car," "6 Cubes," "Take a Chance," "Blokus," and games brought by you and others. Please bring your favorite game to share with us (Optional). Or D) All of the above. I enjoy teaching people how to play games, come and learn a new game or play an old favorite. I prefer games that are easy to learn, end for everyone at the same time (unlike Monopoly), and last 30 to 60 minutes. I also have a few that last 15 to 20 minutes. You can bring your own games. Longer games are less popular, but we did have a three-hour game of "Power Grid" played at the other table while I played "Ticket to Ride" and three other games. (Warning, "Cards Against Humanity" will not be played here.)" Schedule: 1:00 PM - Potluck 5:00 PM - Potluck 6:00 or 6:30 PM - More board games 10:00 PM - Time to go home unless we are having too much fun! I usually get five to ten people attending. (408)[masked] (land line - no texts). If you are reading this after noon on the day of the event, call to let me know that you want to come and what time you think you will arrive. My place is across the street from an empty lot.

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.
