Nerdy Slog Happy Hour TONIGHT, at the Raygun Lounge, 5p to 9p

Posted by on Fri, Dec 7, 2012 at 1:22 PM

Slog nerds, saddle up: come on out tonight to the Raygun Lounge for some beer/wine/mead and gaming (board games, card games, minis gaming...? who knows!) with Slog nerds Paul Constant, Mary Traverse, and the two of us—although Rob is feeling under the weather and doesn't want to accidentally LARP Pandemic. (If you get that, your attendance is expected.)

Feel free to bring any game you want to play or teach. E.g., Paul Constant has never played either Small World or that new game everybody is talking about, Settlers of Catan. So that ignorance of canon needs to be remedied quickly and discreetly.

And a bonus for tonight: Wizards of the Coast is loaning us Tabletop Games Developer Chris Dupuis, to demo the rerelease of "Dungeon!"—a quick-playing game for 1 to 8 players that's the much-improved evolutionary offspring of a 1975 classic.

Dungeon! comes with rules for playing by yourself. As if it were insinuating something.

Also, FYI, we're sharing the space tonight with the nice folks at QueerGeek! and their Ladies Gaming Night (think of it as QueerGeek!SlogCon!), so anyone looking for a measure of dudelessness should also find some tables to their liking.

The Stranger Testing Department is Rob Lightner and Paul Hughes.

Wait a sec... I thought we were meeting at the Rendezvous?

Best wishes, I hope you all have fun. I will be at home playing Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, so I hope my nerd cred is still intact. Maybe I'll attend the next time you guys do this (and you will, I hope).

Cienna and I will be playing strip Risk. You might want to dress in layers, 'cause I'm gonna hold the shit out of Europe.

Can't make it. Have fun. And, if anyone knows a way I can purchase Kirk Cameron's Anti-Evolution board game (for less than $200), let me know?!? I SO wish I'd known about this in 2006 because I would've driven to my nearest Christian Family Store, for sure! http://freakingawesome.net/2012/01/09/in…

LARP Pandemic sounds like a riot. But you guys should use Defenders of the Realm. Similar mechanic but a far more immersive experience.

Yeah I'm a geek.

I will be there as soon as I can be. Do you really have to bring your own games or can you borrow them from the store like another board/card-game pub some of us admire?

@3, It's actually perfect because I have a horrific outbreak of eczema at the moment. I assume shedding layers of skin counts as stripping?

I've been playing the new Dungeon! with my kids. There's way too much luck involved to keep adults interested, unless you're pretty deep into your beer and need something light. However, it's only $20, which would get you a third of your average Euro. This was the gateway game for me back in the day.

Dungeon!!! My parents still have that game up on the shelf. I played the heck out of it with my dad. We were annoyed with the featureless pawns that came with the game, so we went out to the model store and got little lead(!) figurines and we painted them together. So many awesome memories... and some nightmares about Black Puddings and Purple Worms...
