FATDOG means Friday After Thanksgiving Day of Gaming
A full day of open gaming with lots of variety in board games and tabletop gaming: euro games, family games, long strategy games, goofy games, dexterity games, party games and lots more. Beginners are welcome, we can teach you fun and challenging games, just bring yourself and the willingness to have some fun.
Open Gaming in Simi Valley, come one or come all. We have space, table and chairs… room for games big and small. Come for a few hours or stay the whole day. We are starting early and going ’til late.
Note: We will have some refreshments available for purchase. There are many eating establishments a short drive away. Please keep the venue clean and tidy.
We will need help with setting up and tidying up at the end of the day.
The Thomas Fire has greatly affected people in our local area. People have lost their homes, and their livelihoods. Our local community is hurting. Let’s help with the rebuilding. With Christmas fast approaching things are especially hard on the kids.
So, we are holding a Toy Drive. We are gamers who can help people through the power of learning and play. For more details see the Toy Drive page.
Bring along NEW Toys, Games, and School Supplies to a Meetup, or get them to Tim or April-Lyn of the VCSB Meetup; or Blake, Chris, or Julia of the Simi Valley Games Meetup.
Help in anyway you can; donate money via places like the red Cross. People need all sorts of basic items. Every little bit helps.
Update – 21st December
Yesterday, I took a dozen bags full of new, and much needed, items to the Boys and Girls Club Thrift store in Ventura. The pop-up store was winding down and had passed their role onto the B&G Club store on N. Ventura Blvd.
Many thanks to all the help and the donations for the BoardGamers Toy Drive, including: Christieann, Kimberly, Sudro, Kathy G, April-Lyn, and Brian (from Game Ogre in Westlake Village).
Many thanks for all the donations.
The items included: games, toys, school supplies (binders, books, pencils, highlighters), and hygiene products (tampons, wipes, razors, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shaving cream, deodorant). All of these types of items, and more, are still required.
