Guess who pulled the short straw and has to work this Saturday?

Just wanted to update on this. I'll be out of town at a funeral this weekend so going to be missing IGWJD this year. Bums me out on multiple levels.

If something is going to happen here in Winnipeg, someone else will need to figure out what time on Saturday, etc.

UPDATE: Meeting time is 1:00pm

I'm hoping to get some folks together in Bloomington, IN for the event.
Max’s Place (http://www.maxsplace.info) seems like an ideal location that has large tables for gaming, good beer, and good food.

I set up a doodle poll to figure out how many people are interested and their preferred time. The times on the survey are approximate – it’s really just early afternoon, late afternoon, or early evening and it can go as long as we want.

Any GWJers from Indy or beyond are welcome to come down as well, it’s an easy day trip. And bring any games you want to play.

Without our founders what's the point If we ever had a good reason to delay this would be it, why don't we put it off a week and do it next or something, give certis something to look forward to after being out of town? (if thats helpful for you certis)

Has there been any heads or tails of anything going on in the Florida or Orlando region? I would go to Pencon but sadly I moved further south than I used to be. Now instead my only hope might be next year to make a dash for Ohio since I graduate in October and will me moving back to West Virginia for a few.

I have not one, but two wedding socials to hit this coming evening. Sadly, I won't be able to hit the King's Head at that time, but maybe during the day? Is it going down?

Man, I'm stuck in the middle of the country. I'll get there one of these days.

Happy Goodjer Day to Western Europe and all points East.

I'm up early after having a drunken evening with the wife, but sadly no gaming But the spirit of IGWJD was in full swing! Happy Goodjer Day to all!

Happy IGWJD from the castle. We have settled down after playing many games. I managed to get in a few games. We learned how to play Season and liked it quite a bit. We also got in a game of Dune that was quite fun. Looking forward to more tomorrow.

Unless anyone in the Philly area wants to have a last minute meet up today, I'll be celebrating solo.

Or perhaps those of us stuck not visiting others can find something co-op to play online?

Happy IGWJD everyone! I will attempt to get a game in today, but with two little girls and a baby in the house things aren't looking good. Maybe tonight when my wife comes home from work. At worst, we will get to watch some of the official GWJ tv show: Supernatural!

Happy IGWJD 2012! I'm on vacation in FL, but I will be playing some CAH tonight with friends.

Happy IGWJD. It's quarter past midnight here, so I'm going to bed. I'll play some games when I wake up, and in about 12 hours time we'll break out the boardgames.

Happy IGWJ Day all you crazy Goodjers!

Well under way here at Lodnon 2102, seeing as a 'light beer' in this pub starts at about 5%. Shalalm baskur, friends...

SHALAM BASKUR my Goodjer friends! Fill your day with friends, games, and good cheer! And think of our brothers and sisters who cannot be with us today, for one reason or another, and raise a cup or meeple or joystick in their name!

Happy IGWJ Day from Winter Park, Florida! I plan to celebrate later by playing with the proud folk on the TF2 server.

Happy IGWJD folks! Phoenix Rev and I will find some time to play some games together today, somehow. (And no, don't go in the gutter. I mean games. Board games, card games, something)

Lodnon IGWJD 2102 was well weapon. I had a great time. Britannia soon, peeps.

I haven't seen you since July.

My mind is totally in the gutter.

Happy IGWJ Day! (wow that's a mouthful).

Shalam Baskur everyone!

Wish Florida wasn't so geographically huge and we could get a proper S&T down here. Maybe next year.

Shalalm Baskur! I got to show my friend how he sucks at Dishonored (in terms of stealth) and played Double Dragon Neon! Now to drink, do my laundry and play Radiant Historia.

So not too bad after all.

Happy IGWJ Day friends!! I'd almost forgotten that today was the day. Still time to drop my pants and shake my 20-sided dice!

couldn't make it to any meetup thingies but I will dutifully shoot things in the face in borderlands 2 in the name of GWJ

Had a hell of a lot of fun with the Toronto guys! Drank some pumpkin ale, plus a dark beer called 10W30, ate some pretty great poutine and played "Evil Baby Orphanage"! All in all, a productive IGWJ Day

The Bay Area IGWJD contingent is winding down - we ended up with ~25 total people (not including wee little ones) and many games & beverages were enjoyed!

Shalalm Baskur my friends!

PNW folks have disappointed (except momgamer). THREE people showed up to Tekman's place (Me, Clover, and Janci). I tried my best to pick up the slack and drink the entire case of Pyramid holiday beer that I brought but I passed out on the couch after the third beer.

SHALALM BASKUR

Good evening of:
Sequence, Euchre and Pandemic.

Pandemic was great with our custom diseases

Blue = Cottage Cheese Thighs
Red = Down Syndrome Face
Black = The Z Virus
Yellow = Sonic Diarrhea
