Gaming/Movie weekend March 12-14th in Framingham
- It's that time again. I'm losing the battle with the ever-growing mess, and
despite the fact that I still don't have a job, I haven't been able to keep the
house in order. I guess that means I have to throw another party.
This one will run from Friday, March 12th at 7:30 PM through Sunday March
14th (whenever people are tired of playing) at my house in Framingham.
As always, the weekend will feature plenty of gaming, lots of bad movies,
pool, video games (mainly retro 1980's Atari and Coleco games, though I now have
a Vectrex as well), and food. There will be the usual assortment of German
board and card games, plus party games, and games of luck (I recently purchased
a tokens only slot machine with lots of lights and sound), and skill (yes the
"$17.95 from Amazon.Com Crokinole board has not fallen apart yet, though if
anyone is willing to bring their $150 board it will be appreciated.)
A couple of special notes for this one:
IT'S BACK -
After the lukewarm receptions to the last 2 party games (SEZ YOU, and PUB
TRIVIA), we will return to the old stand-by, and Rob has once again graciously
offered to host a Haste Worte game on Saturday night.I still have some really
wonderful (yeah, right) prizes to give away, especially since some of the Pub
Trivia winners didn't want anything from the prize table last time.
Also, Maria was not happy with the way the documentary came out, so she is
bringing in the professionals. A film crew will be on hand to record much of the
party, so I want a good crowd. Please feel free to bring your friends.
If the weather is good, we may cook out on Saturday night. (Or I may be too
lazy to, so no promises). Either way, dinner will be provided Saturday, as I'll
cook up yet another batch of Chili. Any and all other food donations are
Plenty of crash space is available on a first-come basis, and people are
welcome to stay for any or all of the weekend.
For anyone who does not attend Alf's Treasure Hunt in February, copies of the
puzzles I have done for it will be available to try, and a prize will be
given to the first person to solve them during the weekend that was neither a
test-solver nor at the Hunt.
More details to follow, but if anyone wants more information now, feel free
to email me.
