Games Night, THIS Thursday, 3 Feb|
prettypammie and I have been so distracted by life and being sick that I forgot to post this earlier. I plan on being well by Thursday, though, so Games Night is still on. I plan this to be a regular event. I don't know if Pam and I can manage weekly, as chelona and voltbang of chez_turtle do, but we'll see after the first couple times what the interest level is. If there are other organizer-types who want to take part, we may rotate locations. Y'all know me, I'm flexible.
Thursday, 3 Feb, 6:30 PM until everyone goes home or falls asleep.
The choice of game(s) will depend largely on the attendees and their preferences--could be Illuminati, could be LAN games, could be ShowBiz Shuffle, could be MouseTrap, who knows! All that can be said for certain is that there will be people and there will be fun.

- Bring food if you like, or work out a take-out order with me and other guests
- Bring children if you like--the house is largely child-friendly, and we can re-erect the baby-gates quite easily, if needed
- Bring your own games
- Bring anything illegal
- Bring your pets--or at the very least not without talking to us about it, first

It took us a long time to get ours started. We had it weekly, even if people didn't show up. That way, people always knew it was on, so they knew it would be there next time. Having it irregularly (ie only when there were people interested) tended to backfire.
Good luck! We LOVE our Games Night!

We'll probably just get ours started and then move...
I see your point about regularity, though...it may be better to just do it every week--and if sometimes just one or two people show up, that's fine--we get more socializing with just them. :)

Yeah, actually that is what happened with us too! We got our Games Night going in Atlanta, than moved here. It took a while again to get things started here, but it was easier because we had some "lessons learned" from doing it in Atlanta.
