Daniel Stone in Seattle representing that 206. Wut wut.
In all seriousness, though I've actually been toying around with the idea of hosting a large scale Battle of Yavin scenario at a local gaming shop to get some hype for X-Wing going and let people already into it try out some really massive dog-fights… Provided I can gather enough people of course. I'll definitely put a post up here once I've settled on a place and date, but it should be in late September/ early December.
But first I have to see to making a suitable board.
If anyone wants to help organize it, I'd love to hear from you.

I'm in … well, Tacoma or Lakewood - depending on who's being asked. If anyone's familiar with The Game Matrix I am literally within walking distance of it.
Dylan, I'm in Seattle proper (Capitol Hill). If anyone gets any games going in the city, lemme know. I may try organizing something at Gamma Ray Games once the Raygun Cafe opens.
I'm south of you guys in Vancouver, WA, but would likely make a roadie up to the Seattle area if there's a tourney.

I'm in Maple Valley. Work in Bellevue/Tukwila areas. Just got the game, have yet to play it.
I live over in Bellevue. I am trying to get my local store to run a Kessel Run tournament to get an idea of popularity so any indicator of interest would help a lot in convincing them.
I'm in Kent.
I poked around and found that Gamma Ray Games has events on Thursdays, and Gary's Game has events on Sundays. Right now, my schedule is such that I can't get to either of those events, but that should change once fall term wraps up at UW.
If anyone is planning any big events, or wants to organize anything at a local con, I'd be up for that.

In Kent…. and apparently just saying that isn't long enough to constitute a post. So how about now…
I'm in Bothell, but spend a decent amount of time in Bellevue.
Would be great to find some local spots to play!
So, i'm still watching this thread and there seems to be a theme of people not having any place local to play. I've been kicking around the idea of possibly doing a "game night" at my house. I am in Maple Valley, but if looking on google maps, i'm dang near in the middle of Covington and Maple Valley on the 516/272nd right off the 18.
So that puts me easily within 30 minutes of 5 or 6 people on this list, using my address to their city center. I have a couple 8' folding tables that I could put up in the garage which should give 4 games. The tables technically only 30" wide, but if this actually works out, we can always buy a sheet of plywood to lay over the top on the tables for bigger games.
I'm not that crazy with the idea of just opening up my house to a bunch of strangers at the moment, and would want to have some rules.
-People could use the restroom if needed, otherwise just BYO-food/drink and we'll hang out in the garage
-Be of age or at least mature. I don't want parents dropping a kid off. I guess if you're 16 and not a punk you should be fine. I'm 30 and have a family.
-Maybe no alcohol at first. I drink, but this is not a kegger.
-If any smokers, try to keep it limited. I don't want a bunch a butts all over my yard/driveway. And no weed, yeah i know its "legal" now.
-Try to have good hygiene. I don't care if you have mustard on your shirt and are a slob, but please don't be "that guy". We've all played near him. You can smell him as soon as you/he enters the store.
-Basically, just be respectful…
Please don't think im "being a dick" or "not fun", I would like nothing more then to get a group of guys that maybe could meet once a week, from like 7pm-10pm, drink some beers and roll some dice. Its just that I have never done this and would never want to have to tell someone not to come back or make it awkward for someone later.
So does this sound like anything anyone would want to try?
