    Alyce and I live up near Newburgh, so if there are any gatherings in the area make sure to let us know. We're much more likely to hang out on the weekends if we don't have an hour and a half drive to look forward to.

    Oh HELL no. I won't be running this game for at least a month and a half from now.

    I want people's character concepts so I can make an "episode" for each character, that thematically ties into the main plot.

    I am totes running this game like a season of television. A concluded plot every night, a few nods to something bigger... then a season finale where the megaplot rears its many festering heads and eyestalks.

    THE GREAT JERSEY CITY/NYC MARVEL MARATHON
    In which we watch every single Marvel Studios Movie in order, before going to See The Avengers on the Big Screen, in celebration of Kickass movies AND Tape's birthday

    Place: Fort Kickass, aka synd and nexus's abode
    Date: HOPING for Saturday the 5th of May, but @tapeslinger needs to see if she can have that day off.
    Time: This will be literally Ten Hours long, AND a trip to the theater. So we are gonna have to start the films early, like 9:30am so that we can make it to the theater before 9pm to see the Avengers.

    9:30am
    Iron Man

    11:45am
    Incredible Hulk

    1:45pm
    Iron Man 2

    4:00pm
    Thor

    6:00pm
    Captain America

    This wraps up around 8:00pm, giving us ample time to make it to our local theater, which absolutely will be airing a 9-10:00pm-ish showing of the film.

    This will be an epic display of geekdom. We will order pizzas, have alcohol and other fun stuff on tap, and are going to make this a day of fun and nerdish revelry.

    We are now less than three weeks away, some people are coming from out of state for this... I want to start planning a bit better.

    We will be doing signature cocktails for each movie, with general drinking throughout the day. Also, we have lots of delivery options, so everyone will be able to get something they want. Food won't be an issue.

    Just need to get a handle on how many people plan to attend, so we can get the start of our booze planning going.

    Also, we may need to bulk-buy our tickets for the avengers in advance, and collect money from the people who show up to guarantee we all get in.

    So, initial head count?

    There is a 6.95 lunch special at our chinese place that gets you soup, food and fried rice. It's easily two meals, especially if you stretch it with cheap snacks.

  • OrganichuOrganichu Registered User regular

    nexus will need to chime in, but I am sure there will be floor / couch space for you on Friday night

  • TomeWyrmTomeWyrm Registered User regular
    I'll be there, but my apartment is supposedly having a Quatro de Mayo party the day before, so I might not make it for the earlier movies (which is a shame, because Iron Man is the best of the bunch...). But definitely count on me showing up!

    Litejedi and I are a definite *maybe*
    Our son has come down with a severe case of not-doing-jack-all-for-school. The only cure is physically watching him do his work.
    Hopefully he gets enough work done that we can do our own thing for a day when May comes around. I would love to go.

    Do you need me to punch him into shape? *kisses his fists*
    I dont get violently ill when there is the possibility of punches.

    I could never condone physical violence on a public message board.
    nope.
    hitting is so v. bad.

    It is the 5th of May.

    Shame you will miss the avengers, but still plenty of good times before then.

  • VariableVariable Ted Hitler Stroke Me Lady FameRegistered User regular
    I'll definitely be there but I'm not exactly sure when as of yet. I know I won't be there from about 5 to 7 and my going to The Avengers itself depends on what time we see it but it's probably the movie I most want to see so I'm hoping to go.

    Hi!

    This summer, I planned on hosting gettogethers on the weekends in Saratoga Springs, NY for board games, movies, and perhaps some strolls downtown. I can offer a place to stay if you aren't local. If interested, PM me your Facebook info so I can add you to my Facebook Group! That way you are in on the scoop of things as it gets organized!

    Also, I'd like to point out just how excited I am for the Avengers movie to come out! I hope you guys have a blast, I will be watching it when it premiers locally.

    You should bring the boy! Nothing says "romantic birthday" quite like watching hours of superhero movies with a bunch of nerds!

  • TomeWyrmTomeWyrm Registered User regular
    Oh hey so, quick question you guys, since the movie marathon is next weekend and all: are you fine folks of Fort Kickass and the immediate area ( @nexuscrawler @tapeslinger @syndalis ) picking up a bunch of tickets for the Avengers show and we can pay you back, or should we all go ahead and buy tickets in advance now? If the latter, what's the name of your local theater?

    I don't mind doing a bulk buy... thats why I was trying to get a head count last week.

    Still don't really have one yet.

    So far I have :
    Tomewyrm
    riz
    Dunadan
    Organichu
    plus the three of us here at Fort Kickass (the Order of the Triad?)

    anyone else?

    Also also, I mixed up my weekends and I thought D20 burlesque was last weekend when I was broke as a joke but it turns out it is this Saturday. I am a little indifferent since this month's theme is the Whedonverse but I might go if there is interest.

    So basically:
    :bz Saturday d20 burlesque 9pm maybe
    :bz Sunday maybe boardgames
    :bz next weekend is MIGHTY MARVEL MOVIE MAYHEM MARATHON MADNESS thing

    and plus also CONGA RATS to Deebaser and Ras this weekend!! :D

    (imagine a line of rats doing a conga when you are just about ready to strangle someone this weekend, Deebaser)
