This is cross posted from another group that is space related, so there should be some fun interesting folks there.
We are going to get together and play some space themed board games. I'll be bringing:
Galaxy Trucker - Build a spaceship out of spare parts, and then fly it on a mission and see if it survives.
Alien Frontiers - can be taught in under 10 minutes, and takes about 2 hours to play. One of the most balanced games I've ever played. Use your dice as rocket ships, and dock them at varying stations to help you build colonies on the planet below.
Star Trek Catan. Like Settlers of Catan, but with starships. also adds some characters (like Kirk: Protects you from the Klingon), to make the game less ruthless. Takes about 90 minutes to play.
Also: Feel free to bring your own space themed games.
The Uptown Espresso has some GREAT large tables, and they are very friendly to people playing games. All they ask is that if you are going to be there for a while is that you don't park in the parking lot directly outside (which clogs it), and that you buy something. So, come on over to West Seattle and have some fun.
