Third Annual pre-pre-PAX Gaming Tuesday Night Games & Booze - March 19th, J. J. Foleys

edited February 2013 in PAX East
Like games? Like booze (or not - that's fine too)? Like congregating with your fellow nerds and playing games while consuming booze (or other non-booze beverage)? Over 21? Then do I have an event for YOU!

That's right - it's the third annual pre-pre-PAX East Tuesday night gaming gathering! We will once again be getting together at J. J. Foley's (21 Kingston St. location - there are 2 locations, so make sure you go to the Kingston St. one, or you'll be a sad panda) to play games, drink booze, socialize, and nom (just like we do EVERY MONTH in Boston!). I will be talking to the Foley's team to reserve the back room for us, so there should be plenty of room to game in. Start time is 6:30, but if you get there earlier, nobody will shoot you for it. Just go to the back room, look for your fellow gamers, and start playing something. If you don't see any of them, then grab a drink and wait - we'll be there soon enough. Bring games if you want - if not, others most certainly will, so there will be no shortage of things to play. There will also probably be some handheld gaming going on, so bring your 3DS/Vita/Whatever if you want to play. I'll be taking boardgame requests, and will try to bring the games that people want to play, so if there's anything you'd especially enjoy playing with your fellow PAXers, let me know below. Also, bring $$$ to purchase your drinks/food with, and perhaps some extra to donate to Child's Play.

Also, if you plan on attending, please post a reply, so we can get a rough headcount to give to the Foley'e team. Feel free to request games when you do.

TL;DR:
* Who: You and your closest PAX gaming friends, if you (and they) are over 21.
* Where: J.J. Foley's at 21 Kingston St.
* When: Tuesday, March 19th, 2013, 6:30PM
* What: Gaming. And drinking, if you're into that sort of thing.
* Why: Because we can. Oh, and it was a lot of fun the last few years. And every month.

Notes:
* The 21 age limit is because this is a bar - they WILL card at the door, so make sure you have the appropriate ID
* They have decent pub food there, but it does cost money (as do the drinks) - plan accordingly. As far as Boston goes, they're not terribly expensive, but make sure you've got some cash.
* As much as your fellow gamers love you, we don't want to have to carry you home, hold your hair back while you yarf, or read about you as a statistic the next day, so plan accordingly - don't drink TOO much, and make sure you have transportation plans to get back to wherever you're staying.
* Reply if you're coming for headcount purposes.
* PAX Community Calendar event here.
* FaceBook event here.

    Did we call Foley's ahead to reserve the back room last time? Last year I think the place was filled.

    There's a thread for it in the "pax general" section of the forums.

    As zerzhul said, there's a thread for it in the PAX General section of the forums. We've also got a Boston-area PAXers FaceBook group going, if you're not violently opposed to FaceBook.

    I can confirm that I'll be back in town that evening. I'll probably just come straight from the airport (I land at 5:20 PM), so I'll be jetlagged and with a suitcase. Nice.

    I'm not sure if this helps or hurts the event, but Game Over (https://www.facebook.com/GameOverBoston) will likely be happening across the street. At the very least, it counts as board game-friendly overflow space. :)

    Many of our regulars at the monthly meet ups also frequent game over. It's not uncommon for people to split their time between the 2 on that night.

    As for CAH, most of our local regulars own it so there will likely be a few copies hanging around.

    We'll just take over the front room, too, and overflow into Game Over if we need to. Doing a quick count of those above, I got about 28 people, add in the 15 or so regulars who will show up without replying to this thread, and we get 45ish. That'd be a touch crowded in the back room, but I'm betting on being able to grab a few tables up front, too.

    I'm in as well.

    As far as games go - I might be able to bring a copy of San Juan. Failing that, is anyone interested in/bringing Race for the Galaxy and/or Puerto Rico? I know both games are similar to San Juan, and I'd definitely like to try them out, especially as there will be tourneys for both at PAX that I want to enter!
