I was brave tonight! A few weeks ago, I went to a Splendor tournament at a recently opened games store. And they were nice people and said they have open board game playing on Tuesday nights. So today I went — and didn’t know anyone — and played a game of Suburbia (which I have played before, but only once months ago) — and had a great time!
The store is pretty much halfway between my work place and my home, so it’s very convenient to go there after work. And it did reinforce my belief that Gamers are people I enjoy spending time with. And I already knew that I enjoy time spent playing games.
