Party & Social Games Session @ Cafe Games

Yes, this is a dedicated session for all kinds of party and social games! No euros or strategy games.
More of a social club than a strategy session!

The restaurant lunch menu is available from the bar from 12 to 3 and drinks too! "Eat, drink and be merry!"

If you’re new, I highly recommend you start during this session, so you get to meet a variety of people, in some lighter games, before getting into the long strategic games of the later session.

We’re looking for

Party games, like Dixit, Pictionary, Telestrations, Taboo, Cranium, Reverse Charades, Billionaire, Perpetual Commotion, Articulate, Anomia, Cards Against Humanity etc

• Word games, like Scrabble, Scattergories, Boggle

• Tile games, like Qwirkle, Rummikub, Dominos,

• Card games, like Uno, 500, Bridge, Canasta

• Dexterity games, like Jenga, Crokinole, Bausack and Foosball

• and of course the Psychological/Negotiation games like Werewolf (Mafia), The Resistance, Bohnanza

If you've never played these games before, we're more than happy to show you how. :-)

You’ll notice that after 5pm the latter half of this session overlaps with the “All Games” event. You’re welcome to stay on and continue to play lighter games or even try some more strategic games. ( In case you’re wondering, ruling is, Munchkin is strategy. )

Yes I will be bringing along *some* games, but this sort of event works best when everyone helps out.

GOLD COIN donation appreciated - helps with costs.

Pay: for food, drink as you go. (This is a restaurant, not your mate's garage, so I should not need to spell out that it's inappropriate to bring your own food and drink)

      Sorry we three didn't get a game together. Maybe next time. Any chance of a session between Xmas and NY, Chris? I'll co-host if you need help

      We'll be running our games picnic probably second Saturday and recommencing probably second Saturday in the new year. I'll check with the other games clubs to see what's going on over the new year period, I'm sure all sorts of things are going on, though maybe many people are choosing to run private sessions during that time. I'm sorry I didn't really get to meet you yesterday, but send me an email if you're thinking of running a games event during that time.

    I'm going to be bringing a couple of copies of "Intercept" - a 3D version of Connect Four / Noughts-and-Crosses / Tic-Tac-Toe
    http://intercept3d.com/board-game/
    It's a really light game, almost a puzzle, I've had it on my desk at work for a few weeks and people often give it a go on their way past.

      Hi chris I am not sure if you remember but I left a copy of Alhambra card game many months ago at the event. If its convenient could you bring it, I'll pick it up today :)

      November 9, 2013

    • Christopher

      Hello Jacob!!! I've been trying to find you since then and have even brought it along a couple of times - but I mislaid the message where you identified yourself, so that made it tough. It will be there! :-)

    Hi guys, we'll be a bit late to the party- around 5. Looking forward to meeting you then :-)

  • Charmaine

    Hi Chris, I note the time on this event is mid day until 11pm? I thought this session goes only until 5pm? This is probably why it's no longer possible to get a Euro game even in the evening.....

    November 8, 2013

    • Charmaine

      Ah, I just read the comment re the overlap. I still think it's problem.

      November 8, 2013

    • Christopher

      Not entirely sure what you're saying ... are you talking about running out of tables? It's been busy in the evening sessions, but I try to monitor it to make sure we have enough tables, and I thought we'd been fine so far, but if there aren't enough, let me know and I'll try to fix it up :-)

    OMG I haven't been to this for such a long time. It will be nice to meet new people and enjoy playing some boardgames.

      Hi Patricia, had to check it was you!!! Are you coming to both sessions or just this first one? It's changed a bit since you last came :-) Still lots of fun ... maybe more!

    Hey party game fans. Wanted to highlight a post I made on the discussion board about picking up a new werewolf-like game on kickstarter in case anyone is interested in joining me in a group deal: http://www.meetup.com/Boardgames-group-party-and-strategy-games/messages/boards/thread/39362262

      The basic version looks like it could be fun! The advanced characters version looks waaayyyy too complex for my poor little brain :\
