Last Night Was a New Thing


Last night’s meetup at Mochas and Javas was a big success! Ten members showed up, and we had a good time getting to know each other over coffee and gelato.

We also played a few games. Tsuro came out first, and everybody quickly learned how hard it is to keep from zooming off the board, especially when there are six or more players throwing down tiles and making things complicated. By the time the second game of Tsuro was done, we had enough players to split the party and take on games of Zombie Dice and Carcassonne. I had to leave after that, but I’m told that there were also games of Bang! and 1945 (a small press game created by one of our own members).

One thing I was excited to see was how the meetup gave people an opportunity to try out some new games. Most of what we played hit the table because someone said, “I want to try that out.” It’s good sign to see a group full of people who are up for trying new things.

Then again, perhaps I shouldn’t have been surprised. This club is a new thing, and everyone who showed up did so because they were ready to take a step into the unknown. I don’t do that nearly often enough, but I’m glad I have this time, and I’m even gladder that others seem to be taking the plunge too.

More New Things Tomorrow

But that’s yesterday. We actually have another meetup scheduled for tomorrow, July 28 at 1 p.m. at the San Marcos Public Library. I’m looking forward to seeing some newly familiar faces and meeting others for the first time. And maybe this time I’ll even remember to take some pictures…
