So with regular meetup commuter Jon Shafer pushing me to pick a date when he can come up and kick butt at board games again, we’ve settled on the Civic Holiday weekend – the first weekend of August.
On Saturday, August 04, 2012, any and all are invited to come to Toronto and play board games with what has turned into a nice, friendly and collegial group of readers and listeners. Last time, we started a Risk Legacy board, played Pandemic and some other stuff. It was pretty great, and I loved seeing a couple of new faces.
We never seem to have enough time when I set it for mid-afternoon, so let’s shoot for starting at 11:00 AM and then running to 7:00 PM. That gives us 8 hours, time to eat beforehand if anyone wants to and then we break up and go to our homes. You are, of course, not obliged to be there the whole time. Feel free to drop in. I understand that holiday weekends could mean some issues with family plans, but my weekend schedule is a little batty this summer so I picked one that I knew was clear on my end.
Location: To Be Determined.
We have been doing these upstairs at Tequila Bookworm, which has been OK but there are a couple of small issues. Table space isn’t great, for one thing, and the chairs are crap. But there is room to move around and space for staging areas.
Snakes and Lattes has been recommended more than once, but their largest room can only be reserved for 10 at the maximum and we could easily hit a dozen if new people come, and new people always do.
So, as usual, if you can think of a convenient location on a major transit line, feel free to pipe up.
Hope to see you all there.
