hey guys, after chatting with a few people at the Scot's valley ptc I've decided to try getting a local group going at comics ink in Dublin. They are currently stocking king of fighters and has some of each set in stock. if anyone's interested in coming to events here please message or post with availability so i can nail down a time to schedule tables at comics ink.

The shops small but should support 8-10 players comfortably, i'm currently considering events Saturday early afternoons, the shops located at 7980 Amador Valley Blvd, Dublin , CA 94568 right off the highway where 680/580 meet and is also 4-5 blocks from the dublin bart station.

Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday evenings work well for me.

Saturday Epic Adventure runs games in Scotts Valley from 12-4PM and I usually frequent those, so I probably won't be able to make July 12th. Have fun guys!

I'm performing at a benefit concert on the 12th, so will miss out on this inaugural event. Please let me know when the next one is to take place. Would love to attend!

If no one else can make Saturday afternoons, then we can always try for a different day as well. My schedule when I'm in town over the summer is pretty flexible.

Teagus

id run it on week day if possible but problem is they close fairly early since its a comic shop and the owner is just starting to support gaming. not sure if we can get in 3 rounds of ufs before closing. ill double check with owner about closing time and maybe try to schedule another event in the next week or 2 for a week day

According to Yelp they close either at 8 or 9 PM depending on the day, which is pretty late IMO, especially for a week day when you have work in the morning. There's also Sunday too.

The bigger question is, what time would you want to start on a weekday, given the time constraints? I assume you need three hours right? So 5-8 or 6-9? Or am I mistaken?

matthewlow

Hey do you guys think we can do Sunday July 13 instead? Something's come up for July 12. Let me know.

I won't be able to make it this time thing happened and I am having to be else where

matthewlow

Can you offer up other dates you'd be available? Sounds like almost everyone can't make July 12 anymore.

the 12th 13th and 14th I am having to go out to texas to drive a car back other than that weekend I am free anyother time

matthewlow
07-03-2014, 02:31 AM
I'm out all the other weekends, so a weekday? Or postpone to August? Or...

Teagus
07-11-2014, 12:06 PM
how about july 26th or 27th, ill still be at the shop in case anyone can make it tomorrow but ill schedule more events. im out of town on the 19th thru 21st so that weekends out for me. weekdays would be difficult since the shop closes fairly early and events tend to never start on time id be worried we wouldn't finish in time.

boredtodeath0321
07-11-2014, 01:06 PM
That weekend is fine with me.

matthewlow
07-16-2014, 08:42 PM
We're at San Diego Comic-Con so that weekend is out. Let us know about another weekend that would work. Weekdays work fine for me in the summer. Don't they close at 8 or 9? Isn't about 4 hours enough time?

boredtodeath0321
07-16-2014, 11:02 PM
also if we do a week day meet up it doesnt have to be a tounry we can have free play since my matches can take a while id only play one game and not a set so everyone would time to play someone else.

boredtodeath0321
07-21-2014, 12:48 PM

Did anything ever come from this? Just getting back into the game, and while I don't intend on being competitive I think it would be fun to play against other people once every month or so...

matthewlow

Same here, wondering what happened. Once a month sounds like a plan to start.

I am not available this weekend but next should be fine if you guys want to try and get together

Teagus

hi guys i had one show and we hung out and chatted few weeks before gencon, they are redoing the parking lot so i wasnt gonna try scheduling another event till theres parking again. shop was open but parking was awful. it was supposed to be done last week but they still working on it, ill post when they finish and well see if we can get somethin happening

victimsofadown
09-06-2014, 12:01 AM
That would be awesome! As previously mentioned the 1-2 times per month probably works best for me, but this would be the closest location to my home (only 40 mins away). As of right now do they stock product? I am attending an event next Friday in the area and would love to pick up a few boosters on my way :P

Teagus
09-08-2014, 01:08 PM
they just opened up the parking lot over the weekend so were good to go scheduling events again do you guys wanna try this coming weekend the 13th or put off till following weekend?

09-08-2014, 04:53 PM
I say next weekend for me I am broke an can't travel till I get paid next monday

victimsofadown
09-08-2014, 06:41 PM
Yes next weekend is also better for me (I have a comedy festival on Friday and a concert on Saturday). Also of note- I typically work until 3-4 on weekends and work about an hour away from Dublin. I don't mind coming late, either.

Also, I have waaaaaaaaaay more legacy cards than standard cards (actually all I have is the megaman tin currently), should I bring decks from both eras or just my standard?

boredtodeath0321
09-08-2014, 07:40 PM
for now bring/play what you want as we try to grow the group we can start looking at making it standard play

matthewlow

Oddly this weekend is the best for me. Looks like next four Saturdays in a row I have something going on, so just let me know what days you all are thinking and we can go from there. And with the Mariners possibly making the postseason...

I'm not working in Dublin anymore so weekdays are unlikely for the foreseeable future. Hope to hear from you guys soon.

Hey guys, my work schedule got changed (-_-) and now I am working Saturday afternoon/evening. I can do Sunday ~5 still, otherwise I'll have to wait until next week :(

Teagus
09-20-2014, 06:56 AM
well im good either day this weekend, going fishing sat morning but i should be back by 2 so i can make the shop by 3 so if you guys wanna do sat or sunday go ahead and post, i live cross the street so either day is good for me

victimsofadown
09-21-2014, 12:02 AM
No one had updated this thread so I made plans last night, FOR Sunday. I can do Saturday or Sunday next week. Perhaps there is a better way to coordinate this? Via text message or email? Seems like we can't ever actually get in contact to make a good time...

matthewlow
09-21-2014, 06:26 PM
I can't do next Sat. Sun is a maybe, but it's the last day of the regular season for baseball, and it seems to coming down to the wire...

victimsofadown
09-26-2014, 02:03 AM
So... Sunday for real this time?

Teagus
10-02-2014, 08:48 PM
ok so coming up on the weekend again, let me know if you guys wanna get something going.

victimsofadown
10-03-2014, 09:49 PM
I will be unlikely this weekend due to a few tests next week and a sick girlfriend, apologies for the inconvenience. Truthfully I will likely be unavailable for the next 2 weeks, but if ya'll can get something going I might skip my responsibilities to play. I have been acquiring cards for nearly 2 months and only played a single standard game. Online. Yesterday.

Teagus
10-08-2014, 03:26 PM
well i'm out this weekend, have a wedding on the 10th in another state and ill be out of town all weekend.

matthewlow
10-29-2014, 01:26 AM
I need to remember to check this thread.

I picked up the new DBZ game as I played the Score one and I found a store to host so it's looking promising. I'll be there this Sat.

Hopefully you guys can pick a date soon. I typically need to know weeks in advance. Veterans weekend looks out, but I'm off all Thanksgiving week.

victimsofadown
10-29-2014, 01:13 PM
I might be confused, are you available this Saturday or you'll be at this other store on Saturday?

edit- also, please inbox me your cell phone number so we can start a group text which I'm sure will be much better than this thread. I only have 2 numbers so far, Boredtodeath and Teagus.

So....no chance of actually getting this going? Even a bi-weekly would be cool with me...

matthewlow
01-30-2015, 07:51 PM
Bi-weekly would be unlikely but I do have another proposal.

My friend and I picked up Dragon Ball Z as we played the old game and been playing about once a month in Concord at Equilibrium Games on Sat. I asked if they would be interested in hosting UFS before DBZ, which usually starts 2 or 3. He was open to it. For us it would make sense as if the day is free why not do both? I'm not sure if it would work for anyone else and how often we could play, but it's a suggestion.

victimsofadown
01-30-2015, 11:24 PM
Doesn't work as something I could commit to. I might be able to come every-so-often, but I wouldn't count on it for attendance.

matthewlow
01-31-2015, 01:42 AM
My every-so-often is about once a month anyway, so if that's too often then we could plan for every other month.
