Game Meet in NH free beer/food/sleeping. 2 day party
« on: September 10, 2005, 01:16:43 pm »
This is mostly a home based console event. But videogames are videogames right?

This is TENTATIVE depending on interest. Please poll or reply with a definite, maybe, or no. The date isn't set in stone either. I'm thinking around Saturday october 1st from dawn to whenever the last person passes out. That way noone has to work in the morning. Come as early as you want, stay as late as you want. Estimated driving time from boston - 1:20 all highway.

Assume 20-30 people will be coming of you're scared by small gatherings :) Although only 10-15 "spots" will be available for sleeping over, and if there are actually 15 of you, you may be sardined into the downstairs room.

There will be beer, food, games, and trading. Yes, I will buy/provide free 30-packs, chips, burgers, soda etc.. (Of course, bringing something would help as well) PLENTY of room is available for parking/trading/whatever.

In addition. Sleeping arrangements can easily be made since it's a reasonably long drive for people. No, you won't have a bed and breakfast in the morning. But you will have floor space to crash and a parking spot, coffee in the morning is doable.

Gaming will go on through the night as long as people want, although it will get quieter as it gets late for those who just want to go to sleep. I have a MAME cab, and 3 TV's available for gaming along with 1 computer with N64 emulation.

I'm about 20 minutes from funspot, so a sunday trip to funspot isn't out of the question if people want to go.

This won't happen if there isn't enough interest, so please reply even if it's a maybe. My address is Here - -  4 jeannette st franklin nh 03235
Yes, I full realize the main reason this won't happen is due to my location. Please feel free to ask any questions/comments/suggestions!

Kids are fully welcome, I have a large yard, and twin 6 year old boys who will be present.

Sounds like a plan to me!
My wife might come too, if that's okay (I better warn everyone up front, please try to let her win at Galaga, it'll make life easier on all of us)

I know SylentWulf IRL.  He's a good guy, so if anyone has any doubts because he's not a heavy poster here, let him lean on my presence.  He's cool.

I'm definitely going to give this hard consideration, especially if we can get a couple NECG guys up there, and with it's proximity to Funspot.

Yeah these aren't my main boards anymore by far, but I still lurk a bit.
Anyone is welcome as long as they don't mind being bombarded with videogame talk ;)

Have to see what I can do.  With gas prices the way they are it's certainly not a definite thing.

That is a factor for me too, especially since I have to head up to Maine 9/18 for our first football game.

Hasn't been much interest as I'd assumed. Sometimes it's not a good thing to live in the middle of nowhere :) I think it's the same weekend as the baby shower as well, so most likely not gonna happen. Hope NECG picks up again soon ;)

I didn't see this post until right now. 

If you end up picking a new date let me know.

What's NECG?  The first three hits on Google are;
  • Network Economics Consulting Group
  • New England Custom Gun Service
  • New England Consulting Group

I would like to come but not sure if some people would want me there .

NECG is 95% big console collectors, probably why it's not known here.  At least a couple NECG guys hang out here, I can think of three off the top of my head (including me).
