    TBH that's why I never go to this kind of thing. If you don't drink it's nothing but watching a bunch of drunk people.

    I also am not a drinker, so we definitely can find other things to do @Nazihk


    You hug Aurora compassionately.

    No Monopoly. I don't completely hate all of you and might dislike that happening because of a board game.

    The couple I've been to, drinking has definitely been involved but I wouldn't consider it central. We either checked our local cool things (like going to MoMA in NYC, or seeing line dancing in Nashville), or played awesome games together (Cards Against Humanity in NYC, and then Bards Dispense Profanity in Nashville, as well as another game I can't remember the name of). From the list, it looks like there's a ton of cool things to do in Dallas, too.

    Oh, right. We played Munchkins!

    I went to the meetup in Vegas a few years back and had a good time despite being underage. It shouldn't be much of an obstacle.

    I'm looking at tickets, but I'll be there for a week if I fly over, not just the two days. How are hotels/airbnb's over there if I stay longer?

    If there are enough vehicles we could always go to the Fort Worth Stockyards too!

    You can find anything you would want or need in the DFW area, pretty much without fail.

    I haven't heard from pretty much anyone on what activities you want to do. Depending on what everyone wants to do, the best area to stay in changes a good amount. Please reply with what you're comfortable with/want to do, or suggest other things if my original list didn't have what you want.

    From the links Lii posted, most of those aren't going to be viable due to location. Here are the ones that would generally be OK.

    https://www.vrbo.com/4423751ha
    https://www.vrbo.com/4742421ha
    https://www.vrbo.com/874161
    https://www.vrbo.com/4737897ha

    You're looking for locations that are west/northwest of downtown Dallas, but not too far west.



    Is anyone up for doing this? @Zenii, @Lii ?
  • LiiLii Posts: 19Member ✭✭ - Stalwart
    @Lilou. I am up for those locations. Also, @Aralaya ..I plan to bring uno, cards, Scrabble, Life, and Monopoly...I may even have Risk. So...great non drunk and drunk fun!!!!

  • NazihkNazihk Posts: 884Member @ - Epic Achaean
    Risk is even worse than Monopoly.

    Fuck Risk.

    Also, @Lilou from what I've checked just now, the first is unavailable, the second doesn't allow smoking, parties, or large gatherings (I don't smoke,so..it's whatever for me), the third is no smoking and parties, and the last, https://www.vrbo.com/4737897ha, seems to be the best bet.

    Looks good! and a hot tub! Wooooh! If we get enough peeps then the 200/night shouldn't be bad. Are you up for staying longer than just the weekend?

  • LiiLii Posts: 19Member ✭✭ - Stalwart
    Sadly, no. Getting the few days off I am is tricky enough, and I'm driving from TN. Probably going to pick up another Achaean, maybe two.  I may get there at earliest Thursday night and I'll leave later Sunday night.
  • ZeniiZenii Posts: 36Member ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    @Lilou I'm willing to stay in one too! I'd rather have a mutual location!

    @Aralaya and @Lii I can bring Apples to Apples, Cards Against Humanity, The Oregon Trail. 

    Although I'll partake in drinking, I enjoy board games!

    So. Who is going to be arriving in Dallas and needing a place to sleep? This will let me know if one of those condo/apartment/house things are needed to be rented or if I should just focus on getting a simple hotel or whatever.

    So, only three (@talamond, @zenii, me) for a place to stay. If there are no others, we may as well do the same place Leviticus is at. No kitchen, but will be near each other and a little cheaper.

    Cooper is in the area, and I’m in driving distance. I’m happy to help split something, if you can find something reasonable!
