Framingcon Reminder - October 19th - 21st Gaming / Movies / and more
- So we are only 3 weeks away from the next Framingcon and nobody has
volunteered to run the Saturday night party game, which means I will have to do
it myself. Start thinking about the 100 worst movies, loudest scream queens,
obscure Canadian and Australian TV shows, and home made Cosmic Encounter
and Ascension cards :)
For Saturday night I'm hoping the weather will cooperate and let us grill
outside as I do not want to repeat the fire alarm incident yet again. Some
help with the cooking will be appreciated. Now that I am working, there is
less time to get things done, but I should still be able to get the chili
ready on Thursday night (even if it means taking a break from FRAGS that
Some of the recent Tuesday night movies have had sparse attendance but were
quite good, so I'll run a few of them during the weekend. The theater will
also be available throughout the weekend for BUZZ and ROCK BAND.
My current new game order is still being held up by the delay for the new
Ascension expansion, but if it is not out by the 15th I'll have the rest of
the order shipped which includes the new Garden Gnomes trick taking game.
Recent arrivals include Battle Beyond Space, Pittsburgh 68 (a really crazy
zombie game that plays up to 13 people), Little Dead Riding Hood (Somebody
is going to play this with me), Mondo, the Cities expansion for 7 Wonders,
and the 2nd expansion for Cards Against Humanity.
For some reason, this event is not listed in the October BEACON, but it is
on the MENSA online Calendar. As always, it is open to all members of
FRAGS, Unity Games, MENSA, and Meetup.
The festivities start at 7:30 on Friday the 19th and run through at least
midnight on Sunday. There is plenty of room for people to stay over (even
more than usual as a couple of regular overnight guests are unable to make it
this time). As always, dinner is provided Saturday night. In addition to
the Saturday night party game, there will likely be poker tournament.
If time permits me to get organized, I will have a bunch of games and
movies set aside for trade or purchase. I really need to start getting rid of
some of the older stuff to make room for the new.
One more update will follow. In the meantime, if you want more information
on this event, FRAGS on Thursdays, movie night on Tuesday, or Patriots
games in the theater on Sundays, feel free to write.
