My comrade Sam has been pushing the idea of a weekly board game night recently. In my mind, this is a good thing, because it really tempts our large, nebulous group of gamers to coalesce around an informal weekly engagement.
There are at least 10 of us floating around out there, some of whom have never met one another, who would really benefit from a weekly meetup. Whether or not this becomes a regular thing I cannot say. All I know is that we all could do with a dose of regular, casual gaming outside the trappings of our various ongoing RPGs (which are legion).
