GAMES AT THE BUTTERY
Our monthly series of game days is restarting on October 11! This year,
by popular demand, it will be the SECOND Sunday of each month, not the
third Sunday, until at least April. (The second Sunday of May will
conflict with Mother's Day and Lilac Sunday so we may have to consider a
change for that month; stay tuned.)
Another change: we will be opening the doors at 1pm, not 3pm as in the
past. New games will start throughout the day so it's fine to arrive at
3pm or even later if you want to.
Who: Anyone who enjoys playing board games, word games, cards, chess,
checkers, backgammon, silly games, etc.
When: SECOND Sunday of each month, September through May, starting at
1pm, and continuing until late. (Things usually break up somewhere
between 10pm and midnight.) This month, it's October 11.
Where: Here at The Buttery, Dorchester MA. Reply for directions.
What: Games such as mentioned above. Your favorite games, if you bring
them and others want to play. We have several tables for simultaneous
gaming, including one large table. We also have plenty of floor space
for games that need to spread out, such as naval battles, Sorcerer's
Cave, etc. We can provide small rooms for Diplomacy negotiations.
Why: Just for the fun of it, of course!
* Absolutely no smoking! No animals other than service animals.
* We'll supply some soft drinks and chips. If you need your favorite
snack or tipple to enjoy yourself, feel free to bring it -- but no hard
* Some time in the evening, we'll send out for pizza and/or other
snacks. Be prepared to pay for your share. If you prefer, you can bring
your own food; we have a microwave oven available to reheat it.
* Well behaved children of all ages are welcome, but the house is NOT
childproof. Children too young to join in the general games are
encouraged to bring their own quiet amusements or books. Children who
distract or annoy their parents and/or other gamers are not particularly
Since the first games will form up about 1:00 pm, arriving then will
increase your chances of getting in on a game you like. If you're
looking to play a long game (18xx, the Silverton campaign game,
Civilization, Source of the Nile...) you'll definitely want to arrive at
1, and perhaps recruit a few like-minded people before you arrive. But
if you can't come until later in the day, you're still welcome; new
games start throughout the afternoon and evening.
