Discussion article for the meetup : SF Meetup: Fun and Games

WHEN: 20 June 2016 06:15:28PM (-0700)

WHERE: 1597 Howard St, San Francisco

We’ll be meeting to play board (and other) games!

I have Dominion, Puzzle Strike, Ticket to Ride, Suburbia, Set, and standard playing cards. Please feel free to bring other games you’d like to play.

This week I'd also like to try playing some interactive non-board games; for example, the Schelling Point Game (where everyone tries to think of the same object in a category), the Description Game (where we take turns trying to notice new things about an object), and possibly even the Clicker Game (where we try to use reinforcement learning techniques on each other). Feel free to bring your own of these as well.

Format:

We meet and start hanging out at 6:15, but don’t officially start doing the meetup topic until 6:45-7 to accommodate stragglers. Usually there is a food order that goes out before we start the meetup topic.

About these meetups:

The mission of the SF LessWrong meetup is to provide a fun, low-key social space with some structured interaction, where new and non-new community members can mingle and have interesting conversations. Everyone is welcome.

We explicitly encourage people to split off from the main conversation or diverge from the topic if that would be more fun for them (moving side conversations into a separate part of the space if appropriate). Meetup topics are here as a tool to facilitate fun interaction, and we certainly don’t want them to inhibit it.
