Greetings everyone!

I haven't had much luck with this due to lack of interest, but I plan to keep giving this a try regardless! Just so you all know, I need at least 3 confirmed RSVP for me to pull this off as I am going to be straight teaching usually rather than playing. So... minimum of 3 RSVP to fire off this event, otherwise I have to cancel. Also, if there is a game of particular interest you want to learn, let me know as I can cater this event to the needs of our members.

I am hosting a special game day where I plan to teach (and possibly play) one of three games. The purpose of me hosting this event is that I plan to teach a game (or 2) I plan to bring the upcoming week to my weekly hosted MUB events. That being said, whatever we can get to the table today will be playable later in the week as well - so you get at least two solid plays of more in depth games vs. playing a ton of gateway games or intro games. Skill level in gaming is irrelevant for these limited attendance events and I cater the game selection to the audience... meaning that I will choose a heavier game, and typically two mid weight games.

The choices that I will bring this Sunday are Mage Knight (1-5 player (best with 2-3) card drafting/RPG/dungeon type crawler), Agricola (1-5 player farm themed worker placement), and Ora et Labora (1-4 player city building/card combo engine building/worker placement). We will try to get to two of these, but may happen that we only touch on one.

In terms of teaching, Mage Knight is a solid 45+ minute teach with a lot of rules to go over. Agricola is a 30 minute teach that is a straight forward worker placement, and Ora et Labora is a 30 minute teach that has a few interesting quirks to it, but also has a lot of card to deal with as well.

We start at 10:00 AM and go till around 3 or 4. We meet at the food court on the main floor (second level) and parking is available in C lot or B lot. Hope to see you Sunday!

*** I am double hosting with the Concord Meetup group as well... so if they utilize some of the spaces, I will alter the RSVP settings to reflect the correct number of attendees which may lock out this event even though you may see less than 8 in attendance here ***
