So I just moved to Denver from the east coast- literally days after my regular gaming group realized how good X-Wing is.
Is there a regular X-Wing night anywhere in the Denver area- or even a bit further afield?
Sure bud. I can list a few for you, however I cannot tell you how many people regularly show up to events at these locations.
Currently I know of:
Mondays: Total Escape Games, Broomfield CO 6-9:30. Pretty solid following out of this shop. I went there one Monday evening after work and bumped into at least 3 other guys who were playing, but their leagues I hear start off stronger than that. I walked in for just free play towards the end of their last season. (http://www.totalesca...r=2014&month=01)
Dark Matter Games in Lakewood, CO Mondays 5-8pm. Never played here before, but I know on Meetup I believe their is a group that plays out of this location. Their website seems to be down, but I found their info from their facebook page. (https://www.facebook...190322544333196)
The Wizard's Chest, Denver, Cherry Creek Mall area. Days varies for the store here. The try to do one Friday night event, and one Saturday night event. Alan, the guy who typically arranges games here is super cool and nice. I hear there is typically only one regular guy who can show up on Friday evenings, and one of their employees plays the game too. I have gone a few times there, mainly for the Star Wars card game that FFG is doing, but I've played X-Wing once or twice too. I intend to try to make it this Friday evening as for once I have the night free - as long as the snow won't impact my travel. They have yet to post their February schedule, so we'll have to wait and see what is going on there. (http://www.wizardschest.com/)
Enchanted Grounds, Highlands Ranch, Denver, 1st Thursday each month. Never played here...but since Thursdays are one of my days off I might have to make this my stop for each first Thursday of the month so I can get an X-Wing fix. (http://www.enchanted.../?page_id=20515).
Heading further North:
Atomic Goblin Games (where I typically play out of) in Longmont, CO. Wednesday evenings they will host X-Wing night from 5/6-close (9:00). The guys here are super cool and I've been working on trying to get more people interested in the game. I would imagine that on a good night, you could have anywhere from 2-5 people there as we start to get this to take off. (http://www.atomicgoblingames.com/)
The Haunted Game Cafe, Fort Collins, CO. Monday nights at 7 pm-10pm. Typically I think only 2 people are regularly playing here. One of them is Lee, who is SpikeIT in this thread, and he travels quite a bit for the game, just for the love of it (seriously). (http://www.hauntedgamecafe.com/news/)
Gryphon Games: Fort Collins CO. Sundays, 6pm. Lee has been running a group out of Gryphon on Sundays. They are running a special Campaign mode, so it's a bit of a twist and a fresh breath of life into the game. Don't know more than that though, as I haven't been able to make it up there.
I didn't touch anything south of Denver: mainly because I don't know what's going on down there. I heard there was a pretty big following for X-Wing out of Petrie's in CO Springs, but the group has died down from what I understand. Wave 3 didn't even bring many back. The assumption is that people are just playing out of their homes.
There is a Colorado X-Wing facebook page where info is posted: https://www.facebook...51442054999006/
Lastly, since the 2014 Store Championship season has begun:
Atomic Goblin has announced their's on Feb 23rd. It's a Sunday, there is an event created in the Facebook X-Wing group. Check it out.
Total Escape has also been approved for a Store Champ and it is doing theirs on March 8th. They have details as well in the Facebook page.
The other two stores that I know of who were approved are:
I haven't heard back from them, but I know Alan is going to get in contact with me when he has approval. I need to call the gents back at Enchanted to get their info.
Anyhow, I hope this helps. If you ever want to meet up for some games and it works for my schedule, I could possibly make it happen. Thursday/Fridays are my best days.
