If it's Sunday, it's GameNight again!
FREE PIZZA FOR EVERYBODY!!**
**some restrictions apply....
Once again, this Green Mill has donated a $30 gift card to the group. By popular vote last month we decided to share it equally with everyone who comes and is still there at 9pm. At that time I will order an assortment of pizza which is at half price for happy hour, so we'll get twice as much. When it is ready, EVERYBODY get their fair share!!
... If only all our GameNight! locations were as generous. LOL.
For the second Sunday of every month, we have a standing reservation for the group at the Green Mill Restaurant & Bar at the intersection of Grand and Hamline Avenues. We even have our own section to ourselves to have fun playing boardgames. This is the original Green Mill that started the chain, still going strong since 1935! They have good food, good drinks, good servers, a good location and good ambiance. Look for this meetup every second Sunday of the month, from 5pm to 10:45pm at the original Green Mill #1!

Why Move GameNight!™ to a new place every week?
Because I want to stir up the humdrum regularity of the same place weekly routine that GameNight! has gotten into after being a Meetup for over four years, that's why! Sure the games are often new, and always fun, and it's great to see all the regulars who show up often enough that we usually have over twenty to thirty players on any given Sunday night. But getting out of the house should be special, and a new spot to enjoy every week will help do just that. Plus, there's no law that says we can't go back to a favorite place from the past. One more thing... you are welcome (and encouraged) to suggest a location that you'd like to see used for this series of Meetups in the future. The Saint Paul area has been where we have met usually (scattered North, South, East, and elsewhere in town), but I am open to anywhere that is popular with the group members. So make a comment below to let me know what and where YOU want to play boardgames, okay?
Here's where we can play our Boardgames for this Sunday evening ...
It's all for us!
We will usually have our own server (They have very good waitstaff, IMHO.) Remember, all the restaurants we've ever done Meetups at appreciate your patronage. this venue is no exception, so please show your gratitude by ordering something to eat or drink when you stay for awhile to play games together. Here's a link to the dinner menu ...

This location also provides off-street parking half a block to the north, just west of the gas station at the corner.
How our Boardgamer Meetup group works is simple:
I always bring a bunch of my games that I think are good for our group. Old, new, hard, easy, weird, you name it. Check out the pictures below for some examples...
The folks who show up pick or suggest what they'd like to play...
Enough people, and we can play several games at once. Easy-peasy, it's just like a democracy, but more fun! So what's next and new? We shall see. Bring anything you'd like to play (and maybe teach to the group). We could even go back and replay a game that we liked. Imagine that!
See you there, and remember: "Play more games!"
Your host, Chris Hoppe
