I've been wanting to start hosting a recurring series of ToO game nights for a long time, and seeing how fun the Apples to Apples playtest had been made me determined to finally get one scheduled even though the big picture I have in mind hasn't fully come together yet. Kicking off the start of Summer seems like a good occasion to invite folks to get together for some fun!
This will be pretty similar to the playtest event last month, but for ToO Forum and Chatroom members only so it's a small familiar group. I'm working on plans to eventually allow us to coordinate with various online game sites so people can group up based on interests in a wide range of game types, but for now things will center around using our GameBot.
Please come join us for this fun community building event! Sunday, June 26th, in #gameroom
I'll start things off around 7pm Eastern, there is no scheduled end time I expect things to go well into the evening so you can come and go as you please, drop by any time!
Only KnittingFun ever showed up all evening. The two of us had fun, but as a community event it was disappointing. Nini already plays games with us on a regular basis, this was intended to bring in some of the folks who don't think to drop by the Chatroom without knowing there's a planned event happening.
I know I made a mistake scheduling it on a hockey night; when I picked the date I had thought it was an off day. If that was a factor in not attending though, it only would have been so for a couple people as far as I know, so I doubt that is the reason for the turnout. I'm hoping it was just a bad choice of date for everyone, for whatever reasons, but since there was no feedback I have no way of knowing.
If someone would have wanted to attend but this particular day or time wasn't going to work for them I expected they would make a post stating that. No one did, but then no one came. So is there just not interest in something like this?
I had a last minute dinner with my inlaws, and then hockey came on right when we got home...or I was going to pop on.
...for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
I know that for me, Sunday is generally a bad day for events. The starting time overlaps closely with the time that our church evening service begins.
I was a little disappointed it was scheduled for Sunday, although I thought it might still attract a small crowd anyway. I'm sorry to hear the event didn't pan out at all. I did drop in later on in the evening, but I had other things on my mind, so I didn't really hang out.
Thanks, that is the kind of input I was expecting (and needing) to get from people if they had it. If the day wasn't good was it just that particular date that week, or is a certain day of the week always a bad fit, etc.
