Hello out there (echo echo)...

I'm curious to see what kind of interest there is in having a board gaming/table-top group here in Indianapolis (and surrounding areas). Chicago and Columbus both have pretty cool groups. Why not one in between? cool

So, here's what I'm proposing. There are several people I'm talked to that are interested (on Meetup.com, in-person, etc.). We'd all like to have a board game/card game library that would be available to everyone. Also, we'd have events for all of us to get together throughout Indy. Of course, this would be for games we can all just sit down and enjoy without spending hundreds or thousands of dollars (i.e. no Magic or CCG's or huge miniatures games). There are plenty of venues for Magic and CCG's.

If you are in the Indy area and would love to join a group like this, post to this thread!

Shane

I will be doing the same. Thanks all for posting instead of direct e-mail. I think it will be great for all of us to see how many "others" there truly are around.

Be sure to spread the word. I'm doing the same at my local haunts. Let's give this a few weeks and see how many are interested and we'll take it from there.

I would also be interested!

I live in Lafayette too, so the weekends would be better for me as well.

A few weeks is a really long time, seems like we already have enough initial interest.

(In my best Veruca Salt voice.) I want it now!

I love the idea of a CABS-like group with its own library. Count me interested.

And, even though the show's ending, there will continue to be a Game On! Game Night on the west side of town the 1st and 3rd (and 5th, when available) Tuesday of each month. Come play some games!

Hey Cody,

I'm hoping you both would be open to hosting some events at your excellent venue once the group is up and running. Perhaps, we can chat about that at Who's Yer Con.

Oh...I bet some people are wondering about that...I'll explain.

It's a free con on the northwestside of Indianapolis. It's fairly convenient to most in central Indiana. I'm running some events on Saturday. I plan on being there Friday as well.

If anyone has a chance, come check it out and say hi. We can get to know each other a bit and figure out what we all want in a group.

Player registration should be opening soon for the games (not sure exactly when).

The con runs from March 2 to the 4th.

Hey again,

It looks like we have between 20 and 30 interested peeps. Let's try to meet at Who's Yer Con. It's on the northwest side of Indianapolis. I cited it in my previous notes. I'll be there all day Saturday (in the board gaming area or library).

I look forward to meeting you all there!

Shane,

As you know, I'm interested. Just discovered this thread. If there's anything I can do to facilitate a meeting at WYC, let me know. Would love to see a CABS-like group in Indy. Definitely keep me posted, as I'd like to be involved in building this new group.

See you all at Who's Yer Con!

Thanks,
Peter

Hey gamer folk,

Well, there wasn't a strong response this past week so it looks like we're not ready to have a "Central Indiana" group just yet. I've met a couple hundred (give or take) board gamers here in Indianapolis. For those of you in other cities, let's try this:

Why don't we start gathering and spreading the word to create clubs in cities within (approximately) 50 miles or so of Indy. Perhaps we can start more "official" groups similar to CABS or KABGA as a grass roots effort in several cities - not just Indianapolis.

We can check in with each other "more officially" once we have representatives in each "interested" city.

What does everyone think of this?

For the time being, I'm going to continue hosting twice-monthly gaming events in Indy. You are all welcome to attend. If you'd like more information on these events, check out Meetup.com and look for Indy Gamers. I schedule board game events, although the club is for many types of gamers.

We am a new board game publisher in Hamilton County looking for people to try out our game, Expedite. We are really excited about the game and have it listed on Kickstarter already. We have submitted it to Board Game Geek and are just waiting for it to be posted.

If you are interested to play a prototype version, let us know either through our website (www.turnhamgames.com) or email at info@turnhamgames.com.
