    I'm cool with the weekend before comicon. How about Brian's place? (sorry for voluteering you "B")

    Shewski, would you be up for hosting?

    Greetings, blokes.

    I need to double check my social calendar to see if that weekend will work for me or not. If it does, I wouldn't mind doing it at my place. When we discussed last night, Shewski noted he probably wouldn't be able to do it at his place, since he'd be living with his new wife, and she might not dig it so much. That wasn't a definite, though I believe it was a "most likely."

    When I check over things, I'll get back to you folks and let you know what's up with my availability.

    Needs to do hardcore chores tonite,
    Yours Truly

    P.S. Where'd these bloody stars come from all of a sudden?

    (Just having a little fun there Shewski, I had to endure it too...)

    Yeah, I figure a wife who likes to go to bed early + paper thin walls + raucous poker fun = me in the doghouse already =)

    Does anyone else who is interested have a place we can do that while Brian figures out his calendar?

    I wish I had the room in my place to. (Too many toys...)

    BTW, congrats Shewski on reaching 4 stars!

    I can confirm that I am good for the 23rd. Does that night work for everyone else interested? Any places that work?

    No problem for me! I'm off the crutches and only slightly using my cane. I'm there! Ah, stink! that's a Friday night. I may not be able to. I'll have to check. Okay I checked. (quick huh?) I'm good to go. By that time anyway, I should be in even better health.

    Terry, does a bus come out your way? I would need to take one from work to get to you, otherwise I'd have to meet Em and she'd have to take me there. Unless you can meet me in the 'Rox. LMK.

    Also, NEED DIRECTIONS, please. (PM is cool for that)

    Sal, woudl you also need a ride home?

    If I come I can pick you up in Oakland but probably wouldn't be able to ride you back home.

    We've got a venue, we've got a date.... so I'm going to edit the first post for details from everyone so we can determine what else is needed to get this off the ground!

    Here's what I posted:

    EDIT as of 4/7/04

    What: SWAP Poker Night
    When: Friday, April 23rd. Time TBD
    Where: Terry's (Rox's) house... PM him for directions.

    Who's In:
    Terry, Sal, Shewski ("host"), Fluke

    Who's said they may come:

    Brian, Zero, Josh, Greencat, Stina-Cri

    Supplies- Sal can bring poker chips... we'll want 100 or so (varying values) for everyone there, so let us know if we need to get more chips. If Terry needs others to bring good decks of cards, he can let us know.

    Everyone Else- Be a pal and bring some food/drink for our host! Post what you will bring.

    Things we need to decide on:

    Time
    Buy-in
    Other Rules

    How is 7:30 pm for everyone? Sal I could pick you up in the Rocks probably. Although there is a bus that let's off right on my street I think it's the 21D Kenmawr, though I would have to look.

    I have a couple of new decks of cards somewhere around here so that is covered. If not I can always buy them. I'll get a couple of bottle of pop, what kind does everyone like? How many chairs am I gonna need?

    Greetings, blokes.

    I haven't yet set plans for the 23rd, so I'll be tentatively in. I'd very much like to play with you guys, as I haven't played poker (or any card games for that matter) in quite some time.

    Sounds like fun,
    Yours Truly

    Don't count me in yet. I will come if I don't have to work that night and I will pick Sal up in Oakland if you need a ride.

    Fluke that would be great if you could pick me up. I'm off work at 5pm. I won't need a ride home. Em said she would stay at work late and get some overtime in, then just come get me when I'm ready. Thanks alot!

    I've got the prerequisite number of poker chips and more.

    I'll bring something, whether that be pop or something else. You guys wanna go in on pizza for that night?

    Cards aren't that expensive so if you need/want me to pick up some new decks, LMK.

    Does everyone play the hand at once, or do we play 2 per hand like they seem to do on tv?

    Fluke, I'm not too sure what you mean, probably since I've not watched it on TV too much. Everyone plays in the hand, one at a time around the table until they fold or call a bet. Does that help.

    Ok, just checking. I think on tv they do a lot of one on one hands.

    The reason it looks like that is because people fold. So are we a go? I need to borrow some chairs from my grandfather so I would like to know?

    When will Fluke and Brian know if they can come? I will also send PMs to the others who mentioned interest to try and get a specific yea/nay on their part, so that everyone who actually is coming can decide how we want to play.

    This should be fun!!!

    Greetings, blokes.

    I'm pretty sure I'm good to roll, so I guess you can mark me as "in."

    Always feels weird about committing to things in advance,
