Soda Shop 7th Anniversary Chat Party! (May 4th)

Postby Tea Ess » Thu Apr 04, 2019 11:27 pm

The Soda Shop turns 7 years old on May 9th of this year! \:D/ We will be having our first ever official chat party in the Odyssey Chatroom. I wanted to extend an invitation to everyone on the Town of Odyssey, as you have graciously invited those of us on the SS to so many of your own events.

For those of you who have attended the ToO Christmas chatroom parties, I hope to create a similar experience with our event. One of my first experiences on the chat was the 2012 Christmas party. I didn't know what to expect going into it, but it ended up being one of the most wonderfully zany and joyous online events I've participated in.
....•Old members of the board were able to interact with newbies, bridging the generational gap of the ToO
....•snubs organized fun games for us like Scattergories and trivia
....•After a somewhat rocky start to the relationship between the ToO and SS in 2012 (in no small part thanks to yours truly :anxious:), the chat party brought us together
....•The event revitalized the chat itself and drove ongoing activity

Everyone on the board is invited, and I will hope to see as many as possible of you there. Please RSVP in the poll or thread below, and offer any suggestions you can think of for what we can do to make the chat party a fun and welcoming experience for everyone. If you already voted in the poll on the Soda Shop, please do not vote in the one in this thread.

GAMES:
bookworm programmed a chat gaming bot, so we can play Uno, Apples to Apples, Codenames, and more in the #gameroom channel! \:D/ I will also plan to run Scattergories during the party in homage to the Christmas parties.

DATE:
May 4th (Saturday)

LOCATION:
Odyssey Chat Room

TIME: For each time zone.
Atlantic: 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Eastern: 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

It was. The chat was busier than it had been in a long while.

We also got this amazing shirt out of the event.

Well, you can do that any time but this was a one time event so it depends on how you look at it.

We need to have Chatroom gatherings more often though. :yes:

I agree. I want to get the ToO Christmas chat parties going again, but we could also do more informal gatherings before then. Maybe even periodic ToO game nights?

Definitely something I have had in the works for a while. That was before GameBot so now it's even easier to coordinate if people want to play something it can run, but I envision people forming their own teams to play whatever they want, in or out of the Chatroom. Like at a real life game night, find a group and get your game going, move around as you like.
