Frederick, MD Players?

Recommended Posts

 Anyone playing in or around Frederick or central MD? Looking for some new opponents and don't feel like making the trip down to NoVa all the time. Where are you guys?

 I've been looking for a place to play around rockville.  I play heroclix at Dream Wizards, so next time I'm there I'll ask if anyone's playing X-Wing, or if they'd be interested in letting me start something there.

Not much better for you than NoVa, but its a fairly quick drive from Frederick…

 Yea I checked with the guys at Dream Wizards and they said nobody was playing it. Plus they do miniatures stuff on Wednesday which is no good for me. Thanks for the response though. I might try to get something going at the HobbyTown in Frederick.

I just emailed one of the guys at the store about the kessel run event. 

Id be up for playing a game soon, I just picked up the starter and each of the Imperial boosters. 

I think the stores calendar says Wednesday nights for miniatures but could schedule a different night I'm sure. 

I work downtown dc so couldn't get to the store before 7 on weeks nights.  Weekends are better and I play heroclix there pretty often already.

 I'm ten minutes from Dream Wizards  - we should try to get a demo or open play evening together.

 Mondays and Wednesdays are usually my best weeknights, but weekends aren't bad either. My current gaming group are mostly boardgamers, but I might be able to round up a couple more folks for a demo if the goal is to create more players. I have two starters plus a half dozen or so expansions, so we could outift a few people.

Well I guess I kinda hijacked GeekZap's thread as I started focusing on Rockville.  But I just wanted to say I should be at Dream Wizards this Saturday for another game, and I can ask about when we might set up a time to play/demo X-Wing.

I know the store is closed on Mondays though, so we may be narrowed down to Wednesday or the weekend.  Dunno how people normally demo the game, but we could always use the introductory rules the first time or two if we ever get something set up.

So after talking to one of the guys at Dream Wizards, he mentioned that there had occasionally been a couple of people on Wednesday nights playing, but nothing regular.  He mentioned that there is always space in the store on Wednesday nights, as it is miniatures night (as posted on their website's calendar).

He also said that it might be possible to add a more official tournament on Saturdays, but Sundays are not available.  I forgot to ask if they signed up to run the Kessel Run event…

I play Heroclix every other Saturday, so would be happy to start playing X-Wing directly after (heroclix ends by 430) or could try to start playing regularly on Wednesday nights at the store.  I work downtown DC so I would probably only be able to get to the place around 7 at the earliest.

Maybe we could try to get a Saturday game on their calendar once a month or so?  And maybe play casual games on Wednesdays (once or twice a month). I might be able to play this Wednesday, but am hosting family for Thanksgiving the next day so may find myself busy.

I live close to Rockville, MD as well. I won't be able to do Wednesday evenings until likely next year because of work, so Saturdays are best. I am trying to get another friend in Silver Spring interested in the game as well.

Looking forward to playing with everyone! I've also played some games w/ a group in Northern Virginia. Maybe we can do a quarterly NoVa vs. Maryland throw down!!! ^______^

JGSGames,

looks like this Wednesday is no good.  I dont think leaving the wife alone the night before we host people for thanksgiving would be my best idea…

Next week should be fine though.

Can't blame you a bit. We weren't hosting this year, but time with the family has priority. Unfortunately, I'm traveling work this Wednesday and have a meeting on the 5th. Do either of the Saturdays work for you? It'd be nice to get some practice in ahead of the Kessel Run tournies -  I was thinking about going to Games Parlor on the 16th.

This Saturday should work for me (8th).  The earlier in the day the better, 11am/noonish.

I dont know yet if I will be able to make it to the Kessel Run event next weekend, but I'll try to.

Shoot, I got busy this week and didn't check the forum, then made plans with my wife. Drop me a line at jgs9 (at) uw (dot) edu so we can establish proper comms. Sorry! One of these days I'll actually get to play the game…

bump…how do I put a pic in this forum?

 

 

I think it needs to be hosted elsewhere (flickr, picasa, etc.) and a link inserted. In message/edit mode, the Image icon is third from the right side in the toolbar. Good luck!

Anyone out there?  Itching to play….heck, even considering hosting at my house….The owner at Beyond Comics in Gaithersburg (on 355--just north of King Kia Volkswagen and Sheehy Ford) said he wouldn't mind setting up tables to play the game….~Ron

I am in Frederick and would love to get some games in.  I just picked up some minis to play with my son (who is 7 and _*loves*_ Star Wars) but would love it if we could play against other players and/or join a larger group in the area (Frederick, specifically).  Send me a PM if you are interested?

 

thnx,
Christoph

There is a large group of us that play in Chantilly and Glen Burnie. Glen Burnie at Games and Stuff on Wednesday nights (our turnouts have been 8+ regularly). Chantilly on Saturdays at 11-5ish (or later if you can / want).

But back to Frederick ( Beyond Comics)...we are trying to get a nightly or Sunday, Xwing sessions started. It's slow going, but it will pick up. I just finished some more 3x3 play boards for Xwing and Attack Wing use.

What is your availability and/or preference? There is a email sign up at Beyond Comics. I think Thursday is their Magic night.

Right now the most organized event is at Games and Stuff though.

I'm aware of the Baltimore shops but I'm not able to get out there on weeknights.  Weekends are doable but I'm just hoping to find players closer to Frederick.  As far as availability and/or preference, I can play pretty much any weeknight and/or any weekend day.  But again, my preference is local.  I'll have to stop by Beyond Comics and add myself to the sign-up sheet.  Thanks!

 

thnx,

Christoph

I live in Frederick and play X-wing. Has there been anything set up at Beyond Comics yet? I would be willing to sign up too. I also play Star Wars LCG and am looking for players in the Frederick area.
