Come early, stay late, ...but don't miss the chance to get a reward for playing boardgames at Surly Brewery every Wednesday night. The manager of the upstairs pizza room is a fellow boardgame player. He has generously offered FREE gift cards to our group for coming to Surly on Wednesdays to play boardgames.... (And support the brewery with your patronage.) THANKS! We will hold a giveaway at 7pm to those who are present that week. rolling a D20 die, the high roller gets the $30 Surly gift card, next highest gets the $10 Surly gift card, next THREE high rollers get a FREE Surly beer. Use your prize then or later, there is no way to lose except by not being there to win! GOOD LUCK! You can also order any of the many good Surly brews, (especially the special ones from downstairs), play their FREE boardgames with us upstairs, bring your own favorites if you would like, and even order one of their specialty pizzas. And do this every week on Wednesday, ....if you want to! The Surly brewery has been offering a special Wednesday night deal on a pitcher of Surly beer, a pizza, and choice of either appetizer or salad, for only $40. ....SWEET! It's in their "Pizza Upstairs" area. The pizza is good, the beer is good, the whole deal is good! And they encourage you to play some boardgames while you're there. They have some, I have more, and some folks have been bringing their own games for awhile now.... so let's join them! GameNight! is my brand for Meetup events that feature modern stuff to play. NO Monopoly allowed! LOL. Anything else like easy introductory games you could find at Target, up to hard-core brain-burner games from Kickstarter or BoardGameGeek.... if you want to play them, we can play them also. Drop in, buy some food and beers, have some fun for hours. Surly closes at 11pm, so if you get there at 4pm, it only costs $5.71/hr. at one of the best breweries around town. How can you go wrong? It might be the best pizza, beer, and company anywhere in town. Come in and join us at Surly Brewing Co. we will have board games for all types of board game enthusiasts, beer lovers, pizza eaters, and fun folks of any kind. You don't even need to play games! Just hang out with us if you'd like to just do that. We're friendly Meetup people who look forward to seeing you this Wednesday, or next Wednesday, or the Wednesday after that, or after that, or.... you get the idea! BTW.... I organized this for 11 different Meetup groups. If you only see my RSVP, don't worry - there will be a lot of people from Meetup to congregate with and have fun together. All are welcome, it's an inclusive event for everybody. Just drop in, go upstairs (they even have an elevator!), ....Meetup with others and have a good time! See you at Surly! (GOOD LUCK!) your Hosts/Organizers, Chris Hoppe (and others) TTFN....
Games by James and Caribou Coffee are co-hosting weekly game nights! Feel free to swing by and try one of our demo games, or feel free to bring some of your own!
Euro/designer/hobby game night at Fantasy Flight Games Event Center. We generally have 4-6 tables going (at least) and get a wide variety of games on the table. Bring your own games, ask to borrow someone else's, or choose from a large collection of public games on their wall! If you're new to hobby games, come check out the Game Center and the group, there's always someone happy to teach the rules. Even if there are not a lot of people RSVP'd there is always 20-40 board gamers in attendance on Wednesday nights.
Hi Everyone, we have a new location. The Third Street Post in downtown Stillwater. They offer food and full bar for those who are interested. We will be starting a half hour earlier than before (6:30) for those who want to get a casual game in for starters. An additional feature is that The Post is open until midnight, so if a game is running long you wont have to feel rushed to wrap it up. We look forward to seeing all of you at the new location. Thanks, Fred and Paul.
