Gaming Night

Following on from this post, here's the e-mail I sent out:

    Vickie and I would like to invite all of you over our place on the evening of Saturday, January 14th (after the Christmas / New Year Danger Period) to Play Some Games.

    What games? Anything that can be picked up, learned, played and enjoyed in a short space of time. Now, I know you're thinking board or card games, and those are fine for Gaming Night. If you have one or some you enjoy, please bring 'em along.

    But here's the thing: There are roleplaying games that can be picked up, learned, played and enjoyed in a short space of time. There are roleplaying games DESIGNED to go from blank character sheets and no GM prep to a completed, satisfying first session in four or five hours. (No, no pre-generated PCs.) Even with two players and a GM.

    I have some. And I'd really like to play 'em with you.

    So if you're interested, please get back to me on or before Saturday, January the 7th and let me know whether you're coming. If you have freinds who might be interested, please pass this on to them - better yet, just tell them to keep the night clear and drag them along with you!

    You'll need your dice collection; a deck of playing cards would be a bonus. An item of food (bag of chips, a container of dip, whatever strikes your fancy) and a bottle of drink (alcoholic or otherwise) would be a good idea. Again, please bring along anything you'd like to play. I'd like to get a game going by eight o'clock at the latest, and while you're welcome as early as six, please aim to get here around seven.

So far, I've had one reply. Yes, it was positive, schedules pending.

Well, I'm sure I can afford the flight and I'm not doing anything that weekend...

I'll do some checking and get back to you. :)

Hee! The spare bedroom awaits, Gav! :-D


That sounds fun, but living in Sweden will force me to have to pass. I just wanted to say I read your blog regularly and think it's interesting, even if I haven't commented before.

Jonas, hello! Good to read you, although sorry to read you can't make it! :-)

I like to read comments from readers, even if it's just to say hello - and even if they've just got "home from Borås gaming convention after game mastering 5 hours of My Life with Master, 10 hours of Dogs in the Vineyard and 10 of InSpectres over the weekend.". Can I just say I hate you?

I'll be sure to read your own web log Jonas. In the meantime, all the best!
