I have other plans this week, but next time for sure if this is starting up again.

For some reason I've been completely fascinated today by the fact that this may be the first day of my life that I have more trips around the sun than U.S. states visited.

This Saturday is the fourth Saturday of the month and a game day.




While I still have some fluidity in my situation, I plan to be there. If not, Rick and Marvin will be there to substitute host and game. They both tend towards the early side, so be sure to check in if you plan to arrive post 4pm.




What's more, this week is Rick's birthday week, so you Definitely want to show up for that, right?? He'll even have his birthday game with him, Architects of the West Kingdom and might be looking for players!




I also have a copy of Ark Nova, which is supposed to be good, if someone who knows how to play happens to show up.




Who can make it? What would you like to play?

I'm not sure what I'm going to do, but the 2nd Saturday of October this year will be the 20th year of Arlington Board Gamers. How about that?




here's the thread from 10 years ago: Come Celebrate 10 years of ABG! Oct 13th - General - Arlington Board Gamers




At one point my site had the phrase "Gaming with a view, since 2002". That was back when we overlooked the national mall.




I am surely going to try to do something special, so... save the date if you are interested?

Here are games I'm planning on putting into the Congress of Gamers auction this coming weekend. If you're interested, let me know and I'll pull them out of the stack for you! Feel free to ignore the listed prices and just make an offer. Sorry for the wonky copy/paste, I've also attached a screen snip in case that's easier to read.

I'm, at best, a solid maybe for tomorrow. We had "early" dinner plans but one of the two people we were supposed to meet for dinner has COVID. So now we have "later" dinner plans with different folks, so if enough people show up on Discord for gaming, I still need to be done by 5:30 at the latest. Should be able to get in either one new-to-me game (with teaching) or maybe two games I already know how to play.

I've been itching to try BGA's implementation of Uptown but haven't had enough people to make it worthwhile. I like it best with 5 but 4 is okay.

I've also heard good things about 7 Wonders Architects but haven't played or learned the rules yet.

I think we played Parks a while back, I'd try that again.

Sorry to hear that John. If it’s okay with you, I’ll plan to hang out at the ABG Discord site tomorrow at 1 and see if there are any takers for virtual games.

My apologies, folks, but I need to cancel gaming again tomorrow. Things should resume on their regular schedule in June.

I can hop on Discord tomorrow at 1pm.

I have the Wingspan Europe expansion (everyone needs to own Wingspan on Steam but only the host needs to own the expansion on Steam for everyone to play it). I also saw that the Hellas/Elysium expansion was just released for Terraforming Mars but I have not bought it yet. I believe they have the same policy, only the game host needs to own the expansions for everyone to play. I've heard that TM is platform independent since it goes through the Asmodee servers so Steam client can play vs. IOS App (but the friending is quirky and has to happen on asmodee.net first).

I've also recently learned Isle of Cats and can teach it on BGA if folks are interested in that. I need to teach Cheryl at some point anyway, so why not tomorrow!

I haven't found a critical mass of folks to play Uptown on BGA yet, a great short-ish game if folks are up for it. I see they also have Great Western Trail but I haven't played it online yet (and might need a refresher).

Sorry for the late notice, but due to family health events, I need to cancel gaming tomorrow.




If anyone wants to host elsewhere, in person or online, I’d be vicariously happy to hear about it!

Right now it sounds like we'll have Sheila, who's bringing Marvin, Scott and maybe Rick. It might be an early night, as most will depart around dinner time.




Sounds great and see you soon (and anyone else that wants to join in!)

I think I'm in. Cheryl is picking up a 13h shift so I'm on doggie dinner duty around 6pm but hopefully I can get a couple games in.

Sounds like Ed will join us, possibly with Marco Polo II and Crown of Emara. MPII is a good evolution on the original, I've played it on BGA a few times. Keeps a lot of the mechanics of the original, while feeling like a pretty different games.




If Jeff makes it, he's contemplating bringing Beyond the Sun, which I've also played online a few times... good tech tree space themed game.

Current status as far as I know it: Marvin and Scott getting there at close to the start. Jeff might join us at 3pm.




Not sure what we are playing, but looking forward to it!
