Board Games Feb 2020 Meetup
February 8, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Just a chance to meet up for some LGBTQ-flavored (allies also welcome) gaming and socializing. We start at 1 but feel free to drop by when you are able! It’s nothing formal. This meetup happens one Saturday a month. Co-hosts (as available) are John Cantrell-Blaine, Randy McKinnon, Tom Peskie and Andrew Shultz.
Phoenix has been lovely enough to offer their space for gaming. Their space is on Broadway in Capitol Hill next to Dick’s. The gaming space is in the back of the store. They have a selection of demo games. I’ll bring some games and definitely bring things you’d like to play (and feel free to mention any requests or games you want to bring). You are welcome to bring your own food and drink, but they do sell (non-alcoholic) drinks there. Of course, since they are offering us their space for free, please consider buying a drink and/or shopping at the store if you can and please treat the staff well.
Feel free to drop by and meet cool people without partaking of games, that’s fine too. If you haven’t played a board game since Sorry and Monopoly, no worries. We’re very friendly to new players. If you’re new to the group, please come say hi and let us know that you’re there for the event, as there are other patrons at the store (I’ll keep an eye out too). If you’ve been coming to the group for a while and play with the same crew each time, try to switch it up sometimes and play games with new folks!
Feel free to invite friends and such! (Please note that since this is a closed group, events may not be public to non-members, so feel free to invite them to Queer Geek! Seattle if they want to RSVP, or they can just show up. There is also a public version of the event on our Queer Geek Facebook “like page.”)
We’ll be providing (and highly recommend wearing) name tag stickers that indicate gender pronouns. We want this to be a comfortable environment for everyone, so please respect people’s listed or stated gender pronouns.
