    Hello fellow TalkBeer peeps!

    nodamagedone has graciously handed me the reigns to this BIF in his absence.

    This BIF has easily been the most fun that I have ever participated in. The basic premise is that a team is formed in your locale and you send beer and board games to another team. Simple right?

    RULES:
    - Suggested group size 3-5 (which is player count for most board games). We had a few teams over that and San Diego split into two teams last previously. Oh, and they murdered their targets.
    - Beer oz. requirement would be such that all the beer could be consumed on a week night. Thinking most game nights go 3 hrs, so 36 oz (three beers) per person or thereabouts. This rule has been ignored my almost all teams in the past so consider it flexible.
    - board games should be big enough for their team size and NEW. If we get some larger teams(looking at you Portland), I can make some exceptions here. Only one game is required but I don't think anyone has ever sent the minimum.

    Schedule will be:
    - signups through May 25th (or sooner if they taper off)
    - Ship by June 29th
    - Game nights in July!

    How to sign up:
    Assign a team captain.
    Have them send me a PM with the team members screennames(or names if not on TB)

    I will assign targets after the window closes and create a google sheet for the team captains to put beer/game wants, addresses for shipping and special instructions.

    Groups can use boardgamegeek.com to create wants/ gots lists.

    Let's do this!

    I would tag a bunch of people but you are all watching this forum.

    What if I don’t have friends. You discriminating?
    But really though? I’ll send and drink enough as if I were a team:D. Or I’ll see if I can make some friends in time because this one always looks like a blast:oops:

    Oh and Jersey murdered their targets last time too. Not literally. Though sometimes the urge to kill was rising.

    Would love to, but we're about two weeks out from the due date. No way I'll have time for beer related shenanigans in the next few months.

    I don’t know if you’ve heard the rumors of me and board games but they are NEVER good. I go ape shit if someone cheats/colludes against me. Flip board games, throw my beer, scream at everyone... I think I have a serious problem.











































    But I totally cheat every time and that’s okay with me. :D
