WHEN: 06 March 2014 07:00:00PM (+0200)

WHERE: google tel aviv

We're going to have a meetup on Thursday, March 6th at Google Israel's offices, Electra Tower, 98 Yigal Alon st., Tel Aviv.

This time we're going to have a social meetup! Unlike previous meetups where we had a set agenda, an a talk - this time we'll be socializing and playing games. Specifically, we look forward to playing any cool board or card game anyone will bring.

We'll start the meetup at 19:00, and we'll go on as much as we like to. Feel free to come a little bit later, as there is no agenda. (We've decided to start slightly earlier this time to give us more time and accommodate people with different schedules).

We'll meet at the 29th floor of the building (Note: Not the 26th where Google Campus is). If you arrive and cant find your way around, call Anatoly who is graciously hosting us at 054-245-1060.

Things that might happen: - You'll trade cool ideas with cool people from the Israel LW community. - You'll discover kindred spirits who agree with you about one/two boxing. - You'll kick someone's ass (and teach them how you did it) at some awesome boardgame. - You'll discover how to build a friendly AGI running on cold fusion (well probably not)

Things that will happen for sure: - You'll get to hang out with awesome people and have fun!

There is also talk of food and beers, and if you'd like to bring some too - that would be great. (But you don't have to).

If you have any question feel free to email me at hochbergg@gmail.com or call me at 054-533-0678 or call Anatoly at 054-245-1060.

See you there!

A followup: We had a great time.

Eleven people came, and we played Avalon and Zendo, two games which require inductive thinking and game theory -- and everyone was thinking everything through quite impressively. It was a lot of fun.

Thanks to Anatoly for hosting us in the beautiful Google offices.
