All-day boardgaming (Melbourne Saturday Gamers)

This monthly boardgame meetup, mainly organized via Facebook, is for getting together in the CBD, on Saturdays and to play boardgames. Anything goes, but it is a good change for longer, more thematic games to hit the table, which don't get as much play midweek or at more Euro-focused gaming events.

Whilst usually based in Games Laboratory, this week we are meeting at The Mitre, a gaming-friendly pub in the CBD area.

The Facebook group to join, if your interested, is https://www.facebook.com/groups/msgamers/ - It's generally low volume, and mainly hosts the monthly event details. This month's event is at https://www.facebook.com/events/609859109106222/ but you probably need to join the group first to see it.

Feel free to RSVP here, or on the Facebook group, so we have an idea of numbers. More importantly, join the discussion about what games people want to play / need players for !

    Learnt how to play Arkham Horror (which we NEARLY won), then played a close game of Power Grid, followed by 5 player small world. GG to everyone.

      I love a good close coop like that.. still, 2/60 hp remaining on Yig is a bit annoying! (In a good way!)

    Cosy, intimate venue. More of a Eurogames meetup though

      Not the intent, perhaps that's just what people played... anything goes, and typically thematic games make up the bulk of it.

      Lots of new people this week though, so I guess that changed things up a bit. (I didn't play any Euro's ;) )

    How late do you usually go? I won't be able to get there until after work (3-4pm).

      We typically finish 8-9pm, at least when we were at Games Lab. Hopefully The Mitre will be ok with us playing this long as well, I guess it depends on whether they're expecting a massive dinner crowd.

      I'll try and post something here (or no doubt Ben will) on the day if it looks like we have to finish early for some reason.

      Yep, from 8 it seems the footy crowd wanders in. And they're not much for thinking activities.

    heya, keen to come, but mayn't be till 5pm. Fingers crossed!

    Speaking of longer games, should I bother bringing Twilight Imperium?

      I am interested in learning to play. I may not be there until 12.30/1.00pm though.

    Though a bit of a walk, 200 Queen Street or 542 Little Bourke Street are both $5 all day parking on the weekend with Wilson parking online book-a-bay.

    Any suggestions for cheap parking? I checked Wilson Parking but can't find any good weekend book-a-bays.
