Anyone in the area is welcome to join us for board game night at my house (in Champaign, IL) on Saturday, April 9th starting at 5pm. [won't technically be many DC folks but that doesn't matter, you are still welcome.]

I will be running a 10k in the morning nearby (http://www.allertonraces.com/) -- if you are interested in participating in that as well i'd be happy to give you a lift from my house.

There will be food and snacks.  Message me for directions.

While an 11 hour drive sounds nice, it's a little out of the way for me. But I would be there if I were a lot closer. :-)

Thanks for the invite though.

Board game night was a ton of fun.
Also, i finished 88 of 208 in the muddy 10k trail run in 30degree weather.  was brutal -- i can barely move my legs -- good stuff.

We played games that could handle 8+ players:
  • Mayday Mayday! - Hidden role bluffing game where you have to vote on who to let into the cockpit of a hikacked plane; we played twice, bad guys one once, good guys one once. Fun.
  • Telestrations - A fun drawing game that I always play with large groups; no winners just lots of laughs; works with all ages.
  • Dixit (Odyssey) - Players try to guess the weird picture card that best matches a clue; another nice game for larger groups of all ages, since there is no down time.
  • Codenames - Very popular recent game where two teams compete to choose words to match clues; always popular, fast to play, very fun.

Wish I could make it- don't get to play too many boardgames these days.  But IL is quite a hike LOL
