Learn heavy Eurogames and Wargames thru Demo meetup (LEWD)

What: Learn heavy Eurogames and Wargame thru Demo Meetup event (LEWD)
When: its held on Ad Hoc Basis (stabilizing on 2nd Thursday of the month eventually)
Games theme: Training Session

The LEWD Meetup is dedicated to teach Difficult Heavy Eurogames and both Light and Heavy Wargames to new comers. There will be a few veteran gamers there to assist new comers to these games. Every session, a few games will be listed below, please RSVP with your interest indicated and we'll prepare that game demo for you.

Please note : The game you selected WILL be played in FULL. (It is not a one-turn-let-you-try-and-waste-time-session.) Veterans are here to help, so let's not waste their time and effort. Thank you.

Please do join us if you have any interest in heavy stuff.

Please note : This is a unique themed session, in fact, its a training session meant for new comers. So if any gamers that has frustration trying to learn games by themselves and failed, this session will hopefully be enlightening and fun for you. (make life easy learning new games/new type of games.) 

Just as a quick reminder: Participation in this meetup is FREE.

List of games currently with support for this session:

(1) Command and Colors : Ancients. (BoonC supporting)

(2) CO2 (Jerome Supporting)

(3) Axis and Allies 1941 (Alexis and wargamers Supporting)

 

Please note the above list may change as the day draws nearer, depending on gamers demand and commitments. Thank you all.

    March 13, 2013

  • Alexis

    Sounds good. Brittannia it is then. Who's in? 4 players. May not complete the game, but it's a learning session afterall.

    March 12, 2013

  • Alexis

    Looks like I will not be hosting AnA 1941. Instead, looking forward to learning power grid and Hoplomachus from the others.

    February 22, 2013

    • Alexis

      Don't bother to bring. We play other games. Power grid another time then.

      March 12, 2013

    • Lex L.

      Ok . . . I guess a&a is out as previously mentioned. Ok in that case, I'll try to read up on Britannia and diplomacy. Ciao!

      March 12, 2013

  • Lex L.

    Sorry high chance I can't make it on this day; had "a date with work" ...... sob..... bb Hoplomachus, A&A and Powergrid ...... what a pity ..... :(

    March 8, 2013

    • Lex L.

      March 12, 2013

  • Wei J.

    March 11, 2013

    • Alexis

      Will bring other wargames along too. Twilight struggle , sword of Rome, Brittannia.

      March 11, 2013

    • Alexis

      Hammer of scots as well.

      March 11, 2013

  • Lawrence L.

    Can people teach ANY heavy or wargame they want?

    March 6, 2013

    • Alexis

      I don't have that game.

      March 7, 2013

    • Lawrence L.

      I have it, but if anybody can teach it, I can bring it.

      March 7, 2013

  • Lawrence L.

    Kinda have an itch to try Successors again, after seeing it top some wargamers top 10 list - but dunno if enough time or not, esp if more players & in case AP sets in...

    March 6, 2013

    • Alexis

      Expected teaching time for basics, estimated 30-45min. Similar to sword of Rome or Wellington.

      March 7, 2013

    • Lawrence L.

      ok, next time then

      March 7, 2013

  • Lex L.

    Alexis, 12 spots only? 4 players per game? Thought can increase to 15 as there are times when ppl don't turn up and etc ......

    February 5, 2013

    • Lawrence L.

      the worry is more like you are teaching and nobody comes to attend your "lectures" :)

      1 · March 6, 2013

    • Alexis

      No worries. There are always back up plans .... We play other games. No lost...

      March 7, 2013

  • Boone

    I suspect there will be little demand for C&C:ancients so I shall bring Conflict of Heroes and try and attract WW2 gaming fans.

    February 28, 2013

    • Alexis

      It's been awhile since we gamed bro. See you soon for another match of twilight struggle.

      March 5, 2013

    • Jamie L.

      Yup, lookoing forward to the TS rematch. Let me know :)

      March 5, 2013

  • Wei J.

    Hope to make this session, will bring Hoplomachus if I can make it

    Hi all. It may seem at this moment, I might not be able to schedule HEW session this month due to travel. If there are someone(s), that is willing to assist me to host it, than I will schedule it. If not, it would be just LEWD this month. Thanks.

    February 21, 2013

    • Alexis

      Lex will be hosting HEW in March. Thanks.

    Hi lex. This session is meant for a 'serious' theme. That's the idea for teaching n learning heavier stuff. GR has given permission that its OK if the group is small. With only a few vets to teach, it's difficult to gather more ppl that will only end up not learning anything due to spots available for the game as well as the attention from the vets.

    February 5, 2013

    • Alexis

      If gamers are there truly for the session, they are welcome even if they did not RSVP.

      1 · February 5, 2013

    • Alexis

      But if gamers gather just for another session, using 'this session' as their own gaming session, than I will have little choice but to disassociate with them. Leaving it completely to GR's management.
