Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I'd certainly like to go. I'll try and make it. I got an appointment that day and I don't know how late it will go.

    Are new people invited to this?? I didn't go to the first one or anything, but I live in Brookline and this sounds like fun!

    Of course new people are invited! This is about socializing, playing games, and having fun - recapturing a bit of the PAX spirit. Come on down!

    I think next year we'll do JJ Foleys Prepre-PAX. Worked out really well.

    Wish I lived closer, Khadour. :(

    It's looking likely that I'll be there Tuesday! Anyone bringing Apples to Apples again? That was super fun last time!
    It has been requested that I bring some Oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies with me. I don't know if I'll have the time to bake tomorrow, but I'll try to fit it in. If I do bring cookies, I'm going to do it Cookie Brigade style. So if you want cookies, bring money to donate the Child's Play.
    Khadour, you might want to update the OP with date, time, location, etc. So people can check it and easily see what's up :)

    Hello, wouldn't it be easy to organize and update future events with Meetup.com?

    Excellent! OP updated - thanks for reminding me. Apparently, I'm getting rusty at this whole forum thing. . .

    See you tomorrow night! I'll be sure to toss a copy of Apples to Apples in the box for you, since it sounds like trinistand won't be able to bring most of his games.

    Yeah, since I'm going to be downtown for work already, I'll be taking public transit in. I'll pack a couple of the smaller games in my bag though but I'm not sure I can make Apples to Apples fit o_O

    Looking forward to it!

    Don't worry about it - I'll toss a decent mix of games into the box. Apples to Apples, Catan, Carcassonne, Puerto Rico, Ticket to Ride, Zombie/Cthulhu dice, Munchkin, etc. Anyone have any requests? Unfortunately, my copy of 7 Wonders won't arrive until Thursday or Friday, so I won't have that with me (but it'll be there next time).

    I will definitely be there with 2 dozen cookies in tow! =D

    Oh and I'm bringing Ascension, if anyone wants to play that.

    You're a cookie-baking machine!

    I've actually never played Ascension, so I might well be in for some of that. I've got the following in the car already:
    Ticket to Ride
    Stone Age
    Settlers of Catan
    Carcassonne
    Puerto Rico
    Munchkin
    Illuminati
    Apples to Apples
    Smarty Party
    Zombie Dice
    Cthulhu Dice

    I'll be swinging by the house on my way downtown tonight, so if anyone has any further requests, just let me know!

    Yes, there's definitely something to be said for board games in bars! Much fun all around. We may indeed have to make this a monthly meeting . . .

    And, as someone else said earlier in another forum, your cookies are the future!

    It seems to be a common thing at the last two nights that someone teaches munchkin...tuesday we had a game go for almost 2 hours.

    And we've also had a teaching game of 7 Wonders both nights, as well!

    I recently found out that a number of boston Redditers also hit JJ Foleys fairly often. Ill work on cross-posting meetup info as we are very compatable groups of nerds :)

    One of the people I spoke to has a huge game collection, so we should have even more things to play!

    How would anyone feel about doing a meetup north of the city? It looks like there's a fair number of NHers here...for those of us who love Boston but can't get down there easily? :D

    I'd be fine with it, but I know there are a number of people who are limited by public transportation, so might not be able to make it up north . . .

    Well, in the interests of making this a monthly thing, and given the timing of the last get together, shall we say the last Tuesday of the month down at J.J Foley's for our regular meeting? That would make it on the 26th this month.

    If a NH get together is desired, that can be scheduled separately - sound reasonable?

    I think that'd be a good approach. A weekendish NH meetup would make things a bit more accessable I think too.

    I'll make a post on the Boston subreddit, they seemed real excited about meeting fellow nerds and doing some gaming :)

    I'm liking both the idea of a monthly Boston gathering and also a separate north of the city meet.

    Living in Lowell, a north of the city meet would be a lot easier for me to get to on a weeknight.

    Pretty much what I was going to suggest. My only other suggestion would be that on occasion we have our JJ Foley's night on a weekend. I enjoy the Tuesday nights, but a weekend date will give others who find weeknights difficult a chance to join us.

    I know that the T is a pain but being able to go out for drinks and not have to worry about the drive home is pretty nice as well.
