Update: Framingcon June 8th-10th/Framingcon mini June 16th/This Tuesday's movie
- We are less than a month away from the next Framingcon, and as always, a
bunch of new games have just arrived, with more on the way. None of the other
Cockroach games are as good as Cockroach Poker, and most are just plain
silly, but I bought them, so someone is going to have to play them with me.
Dixit Jinx is also not as good as the original, but the new entry into the 6
Nimmt/11 Nimmt family was quite enjoyable.
I have also just ordered a rare out of print German game from the designer
of Settlers of Catan, and I hope it will be here by the party.
In our last order, Brian bought a bunch of interesting dice games from
Amazon Germany that I now want, so I will be trying to place another order in
the next week or so. Shipping is still a flat $20 regardless of the number of
games, so the more the better. Please let me know ASAP if you want anything.
If anyone wants to volunteer to do the Saturday party game for June 9th,
please let me know quickly. Once again, Rob did a great job with his
audio/video game for the last party, and this will be tough to top. If nobody is
willing, I'll throw something together, and you may not like it (Not sure if
that's a plea for help or a threat, but maybe it will work.)
As always, there will be plenty of room for people to stay over. Ryan is
moving out at the end of May, and the new tenants are moving in their stuff
June 1st, but their old lease does not expire until the 30th, so there may
even be a bit of extra space (though they will likely be here for the games).
For the main Framingcon, dinner will be provided on Saturday night. Unless
the grass grows above the porch and becomes a fire hazard (I'll get a new
lawnmower one of these days), we'll grill burgers and hot dogs outside For the
mini Framingcon the week after, we'll order out pizzas.
These events are open to all members of FRAGS, Unity Games, MENSA, Meetup,
and their friends. If you need more info, please feel free to email me.
I'm going to be lazy now and instead of sending this to the separate movie
group, I'll include it here:
Unfortunately for everyone, I did not want to wait until Tuesday and I
watched STRIPPERS VS WEREWOLVES tonight. It's the British answer to ZOMBIE
STRIPPERS and also features Robert Englund.
So instead, we will be showing a rare, out of print black comedy. I had to
pay over $20 for this one, and I hope it's as good as I've been led to
ALL ABOUT EVIL features Natasha Lyonne, Thomas Dekker, and Cassandra
The movie starts at 8:00. We'll finish up the 2nd season of ARCHER at
7:00. Starting next week, the preshow will be season one of TODD AND THE BOOK OF
That's it for now. Another update to follow in a couple of weeks. I'm doing
two events, so I hope most of you can make it to at least one of them.
