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)

    I really had a good time!! A lot of fun!
    I was a first-timer and I'll go to the next meetings for sure!
    Discovered 4 good games.
    Everyone was nice and welcoming, very good spirit there.
    Many thanks to Christopher, a very nice organizer and a winning Spaceship Captain (Engineer awaiting your orders Sir!)

    Thanks for the fun times, kiddies!

    I spent another fun afternoon at this Meetup. Again, people were friendly, inviting me to join in with their games. I liked learning how to play Monopoly Deal.

    Hi Chris. I have this game - Durance, which is a narrative (no GM) gams where players create and tell
    The story of a colony in space, interpreting different characters and deciding the fate of all. It is similar to a game like Fiasco, if you know that one. Would this fit in with the party game session, or is it better for later (or not at all)?

      Darn, was on my way in to try this one out. Sounds intriguing. Have evening plans already, so maybe another time.

    • Euan B.

      Thanks for bringing Durance. I enjoyed the game.

    I won't be there at precisely 12 because of a World Cup early wake up call... And then a nanna nap. I hope that's ok to rock up a little late? :/

    • Jenson La P.

      Welcome Kimberley. I hope you had fun! :D

      It's okay, it's a very relaxed event with all sorts of different people and very newbie friendly :-) We'll help you settle in with something you enjoy. Have you seen the photos of this event at http://CafeGames.Word...­ ?

    I'll be bringing Bang Dice and Rampage for those that want to get their destructi-on!

    2 · June 12

    • Jenson La P.

      I just watched the Tabletop episode of Rampage! Wouldn't mind givin' it a go at some point! :D

      1 · June 13

    • Michael

      Come by and we'll get a game going, takes a bit to set up so I'm sure we'll get 4 people by the time it's ready. I should be arriving around 1-2

      1 · June 13

  • Robert

    I can bring Cosmic Encounter but I don't know if I should wait till 5 to bring it out though.

    June 12

    • Christopher

      Probably best after 5. I think it has more in common with the after 5 games... I remember the last few times I've played CE, it's been quite long and intricate. Fun too, but the to-ing and fro-ing with the attack/defence allies, rewards, compensation, flare, etc starts building up

      June 12

  • Al

    First time as well, have a pack of UNO cards...should I bring it or will there be too many decks than?

    1 · June 12

    • Stuart

      If you think you might want to play it, bring it; it can always stay in the bag if you end up not playing it. :)

      2 · June 12

  • Patrick B.

    First timer here, board gamer noob. Looking forward to it though!

    3 · June 11

  • Robert Y

    Hi Kimberly,
    I'm a first timer too; just remember, you can't win if you don't play!!
    :-]

    • Euan B.

      Some games, everyone wins or everyone loses. Pandemic is an example, a co-op game where the players try to beat the game together.

      2 · June 10

  • Kimberley

    First time board game meet up... Eeep!

    1 · June 9

    • Christopher

      Tsk, don't be like that Stuart! :-P I'll bring along Trivial Pursuit specially!
      Last month we had people playing the Dr Who trivial pursuit!

      2 · June 9

    • Kimberley

      Oh wow that's so nice of you Christopher! And Dr Who even?! I'm only a recent Whovian.. I might suck at it hehe
