    I've never been to an IC event so I'm going to make some assumptions about the ICWB:

    • It's at the house in Detroit
    • It's a LAN party
    • It's BYOB
    • All members are invited

    Can someone confirm those? Is there an RSVP? Should I bring food? What games are being played (guessing TF2)? Is there somewhere else I should be looking for answers to this and other burning questions?

    My regular January LAN party looks like it's cancelled, so I suspect I'll be jonesing for some gaming.

    Yup

    • It's a LAN party

    No, it's a board game party on Sunday night. While anyone is usually free to bring a computer to play games on to any event, there will really be no LAN gaming going on.

    • It's BYOB

    Yes. There's a beer fridge, and usually everyone is expected to contribute something to it in return for taking things. IE, you bring beer, then you can drink the other beer that's in there (unless it's marked). There's also usually some liquor laying around; if you want wine or something specific, you should bring it yourself. There are no hard and fast rules about booze consumption-- basically, just don't be an asshole. Don't bring a six pack of keystone and then drink 30 microbrews-- don't drink something labeled-- don't consume a bottle of the house's Bulleit.

    • All members are invited

    Yup.

    Sometimes @Lincoln makes a FB event that you can RSVP to, but generally no, you don't have to RSVP. You can bring food if you'd like-- there are sometimes snacks someone brings, or the group goes out to dinner, or pizza is ordered.

    The games are usually board games; Catan, Ticket to Ride, Vegas Showdown, and Dominion are all played regularly, but anything is a possibility.

    I'm glad I stated my assumptions for others to poke holes in. Thanks for the clarification!

    @pigflipper There is a Javascript widget that turns normal links into affiliate links on Icrontic, so it's not Brian being a smartass, any link from the forum really does work. :)

    Thank you! I'm interested and just wanted to know more. Hopefully, I will be up there that weekend.

    Firmed up dates for ICCL to 10-11 April. But really, any weekend in April / early May we'll be working on the house if you have time to lend a hand on a Sat or Sun afternoon.

    Meatfeast (Memorial Day BBQ) is moving from Sunday, May 24 to Saturday, May 23 to accommodate me leaving for a trip Sunday morning.

  • ThraxThrax 🐌 Austin, TX Icrontian

    Now that EPIC has, sadly, drawn to a close: a bump to the 2015 schedule, so Icrontians can plan their next trip! ICOK and ICNY are the next "big" events.
