    Default Hey. Wanna Come Over and Play Games aka The Bay Area Game Club Thread

    This thread is going to be exactly the same format as the Bay Area Records Club Thread that greghead started. I really love being apart of that group and I was hoping we could start something up similarly with gaming. I was thinking Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros. tournaments, board games, table tops, etc. We could even have people bring records and goodies like the Records Club.

    Anyone interested in this? Greg? Cara?

    I'm very interested! A lot of times we end up playing games when we do actually have record club. Quite frankly, I haven't been gaming enough recently and this is a good excuse to get back into it.

    I am interested!

    I am big fan of all kinds of board games and would have more if we knew more people who wanted to play. I am terrible at video games but they can be very fun anyway.

    We do not have Ticket to Ride; I have not played it but I want to.

    We have Settlers of Catan, Race for the Galaxy, Zooloretto and Acquire.

    I want to play Small World again.

    Nertz card game. Each player uses a deck of cards its a very fast paced type of solitaire but you play off other players hands. Very fun highly addictive card game. A quick search will show how its played.

    Okay, so getting this together failed (on my part) but I want to try again. Does the 20th work for anyone?

    I managed to grab a GCN adapter for my Wii U so now I have 4 Generic Brand Pro Controllers and 4 GCN controllers.

    Also did a soft mod on my console so we can play Melee and other GCN games
