The XYZZY Awards were just announced! 80 Days won Best Game; we’ve played the majority of the award-winning games at past meetups, but we could try some that we’ve overlooked. (For example, I don’t think we’d ever played “The Uncle Who Works for Nintendo”, and I’d like to try it.)
We can also try playing some more Spring Thing games. Last time we played Toby’s Nose, but there’s half a dozen more.
If we bring a few laptops we could try playing Emily Short’s Spring Thing multiplayer Seltani game, Aspel. emshort.wordpress.com/2015/04/0 … and-aspel/
We can also play the newest game from Choice of Games, “Choice of the Petal Throne.” We played it years ago when it was submitted for IntroComp, but the game is finished now and tons of fun.
Please RSVP so we know how much pizza to bring!
