Attention northern New England BGG users and fellow board gamers from across the state Maine! The Maine Gamer is happy to announce the Northern New England Board Game Geek Meet-up, August 13th (Saturday) in Brunswick, Maine!

We’ve reserved a large, air conditioned community room at the Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick for this day long event. Bring your favorite strategy, war and family board games or try something new from our lending library. Come for one game or stay for the day.

The meetup will feature: two morning sessions, two afternoon sessions with a break in the middle for lunch, and a board game swap meet. There will also be five unscheduled tables for BYOBG (bring your own board game) fun. For those who wish to linger (and are of age) we will end the day at one of Brunswick’s fine pubs.

The meetup is free (no charge). Children ages 13 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

DAY SCHEDULE:
9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Open Tables (5 unscheduled tables, first come, first serve)

SESSION SCHEDULE:
Signup and registration, along with the schedule of hosted games on the reserved tables, are now online at our Warhorn event page.

HOSTING A GAME:
If you are interested in hosting a board game at one of the reserved tables please register on the Warhorn event page and include the name of the game(s), along with the publisher and edition information in the “Notes” field of your registration application. You may also email the information to the event coordinator from the link provided on the Warhorn event page.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
You are not required to register or reserve a table during a session to attend the event. You may elect to chance the availability of the open tables. However, registration is free and scheduling a session guarantees you a table for you to host a game or a seat at a scheduled game (as availability permits). You may reserve two morning or two evening sessions back-to-back if table availability permits.

There is no time limit on the open tables but they are reserved for board game use only. The open tables are available on a first come, first served basis.

Lunch is not provided. Please bring your lunch or, if you wish, many of Brunswick’s fine dining establishments are readily available downtown (within walking distance from the library).

Please Note: Food and drink are not permitted at the game tables.

DIRECTIONS:
Directions to the Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick can be found on the Curtis Memorial Library website. We will be holding the event in the community room which has a separate entrance to the left of the main library entrance.

PARKING:
Please do not park in the library’s (very small) parking lot. There is plenty of street-side, public parking on the streets that surround the library. Also, additional parking may be found downtown and at the Hannaford parking lot nearby (all within walking distance).

QUESTIONS? COMMENTS?
If you have questions or comments please post them on the forum thread regarding the meetup at Boardgamegeek.com.

SPONSORS:
We’d like to thank Merrymeeting Games, Rio Grande Games, GMT Games, ToyVault, Atlas Games and Asmodee Games for their contributions to our board game lending library and sponsoring this event.
