Armegeddon games Night
Look, mostly new words! Please RSVP in comments, I can't do polls here these days.

The world is ending on saturday, and the best way to spend our last night on earth would be, gaming at Chez Turtle. No, really, this is it, the big one, we're all going to die. Worldwide earthquakes followed by the rapture. http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2011/05/18/a-brief-history-of-the-end-of-time/?mod=google_news_blog I am thinking maybe Pillars of the Earth, Zombie State, Pandemic, Pompeii, and any... other apocalyptic games people care to bring. I think maybe one last slice of pie, some nice wine, and late night revelry.


Doors open at 7. Bring your dinner and sit down with us for a meal. Dinner is between 7 and 8, then the kitchen table turns into a games table. Games can start as people show up. When we have 4 people, we can start a game. If you show up after 8:15 or so, you may end up waiting a while for the first round of games to end so you can fit into a game. What do you feel like playing? Suggest a game.

You are welcome to bring food, snacks, beverages, etc. One of the hosts, and at least one of our guests, is limited to gluten free foods. You don't have to bring gluten free, but if you do, it will be appreciated. Wine and cider are popular with our guests, beer is not. Rasberries and strawberries are much beloved, blueberries, not so much.



Parking Reminder: Park in the marked spaces if you intend to stay past 1am. Park on the side of the street that does not have no parking signs if you do park on the street.

Critter alert: We have cats and a dog. If you are allergic to either type of critter, this is your early warning. Allergy induced fatal medical adventures are against the house rules.

Remember, the world may end saturday. Wear clean underwear.

Have we really not posted Games Night here on LJ for that long? :)
I see the last Games Night post here as January? That's strange!  I know we've been using FB more recently, but wow. :)

Anyway...

Heads up -

Paul's not feeling well today. Probably allergies, but it's possible that he has a cold or something else that could be communicable. Also, we may end up needing to call it an early night if neither of us is able to stay up late enough for late games. :)

We might have to cancel altogether if he continues to feel worse during the day today. I will let everyone know if we have to cancel tonight.

GAMES NIGHT!
http://www.facebook.com/becky.loveking/posts/10150160902285620#!/event.php?eid=101627709913578

WHOOPS! Paul's first week at the new job has him not online much! So he asked me to post Games Night, and I totally forgot!

Silly me.

Anyway - Games Night, as usual this week!

Who wants to try the new BSG expansion with me? Pretty please? :)

The holiday season is now over and it's back to normal, so, games night!

Bring a friend, our group needs new faces! Bring chips, bring berries, bring soda, bring cupcakes, bring beer and wine, and gluten free cookies. Doors open at 6, a special early start for the... holiday! Games can start as people show up. When we have 4 people, we can start a game.I would like to start trying to shuffle people into games earlier, rather than clustering in a small area talking loudly. If you show up after 8:15 or so, you may end up waiting a while for the first round of games to end so you can fit into a game. What do you feel like playing? Suggest a game.



Parking Reminder: Park in the marked spaces if you intend to stay past 1am. Park on the side of the street that does not have no parking signs if you do park on the street.

Never grope a cantelope.

Ho Ho Holiday Games Night











I know many of you will be busy with Christmas eve activities, but for those who aren't we will be hosting games, just as we would on any other friday night. Madison will be looking forward to seeing what santa brought her in the morning.

Games Night











Last time, I posted this to my journal, not chez turtle. Oops. But that tells me some of you aren't reading my journal as often as you read this. Interesting. Anyway, last minute games night post. Games night is on. It's a go. Never any doubt.

Games Night! Shall we play a game? Some of you have been missing for a while, maybe this would be a good week to come back for a game. We are new and improved, with less sodium and flavor crystals, aged in wood and optomised for more efficient operations. I suspect we may see Battlestar once again, along with perhaps Tigris, or Domain, along with whatever people happen to bring with them.

Bring a friend, our group needs new faces! Bring chips, bring berries, bring soda, bring cupcakes, bring beer and wine, and gluten free cookies. Doors open at 7, earlier if give me a shout and let me know you are on the way. Games can start as people show up.

Games Night! This games night happens to also be Madison's 9th birthday. She will be at a TKD party until about 9pm but it would be nice if people were to remember her birthday when she gets home.

Games Night!



I posted not games night until this now, here, for this week. In other words, the LJ games night post is so late as to be the next best thing to pointless. But I am posting it, just so that if you do see it, you will know that yes, we are having games night as usual, so go ahead and show up as usual anytime after 6:59pm. After 8pm is late, but that's ok, show up late if that's when you show up.

Look at games night announcements from previous weeks for details, here's the poll.

Games Night! No new games here, do you have any new games? Is it time for a classics night with settlers, carcasonne, and TTR? Or do we break out the setters of america and see what that is all about?
