GAME DAY AT THE BUTTERY
Special note!! October's game day will not be at The Buttery, due to
work being done at the house; it will instead be held a short distance
away at Melville Keep, Dorchester MA. Contact me for directions if you
need them. The location of November's game day has not yet been
determined; we expect The Buttery to be available again by December.
We have a copy of Dominant Species and hope to find players for it this
month. We always welcome 18xx players and have a good selection which
now includes 1861.
Our monthly series of game days is resuming! This year, like last, it
will be the SECOND Sunday of each month, not the third Sunday, until
April. We're not yet decided about May.
We will be opening the doors at 1pm. New games will start throughout the
day so it's fine to arrive 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 April, starting at
1pm, and continuing until late. (Things usually break up somewhere
between 10pm and midnight.) This month, it's October 10.
Where:this month, at Melville Keep, Dorchester MA 02124. Contact me for
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.
