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)

    Photos and Words about Cafe Games in October...

    "From Retro Games to Hardcore Modern Boardgames"

    November 7, 2014

    A couple of messages:
    * If you brought Blokus along, please check to see if you have the copy marked "Doug" in the top right hand corner. We have your copy.
    * Whoever owned Cosmic Encounter, one of your cards was found. Also an unsleeved Lords of Waterdeep card. (now 2 found)
    * Also who completely removed the drawstring from my copy of Love Letter? That's quite irritating and not easy to fix (or to remove in the first place - untying knots, pulling out)

    For those who didn't see it the other day, the Cafe Games blog has a photo of more lost-n-found items. Please check the floor when you help pack up games!

      yeah it is. this game is actually very popular in my country, with most of the university students playing it but I guess very few here know this game

      Yes, the famous card site Pagat says that it's pretty much unknown in English-speaking countries. "It is known in France, Belgium and Italy and is particularly popular in Portugal, Russia, Turkey, Colombia and Brazil."

    Heya never been to this event but very keen to check it out! Do We have to rock up at 12 on the dot or does it matter of we're a bit later and would guys be easy to find!

      But taking the elevator (on the right most side of the building) to level 1 is a safe bet.
      Just a reminder that the most social time of the day is between 12 and 5 - the games then are generally short and people move around more. After 5 many of us ease into longer less-social games ... although some people keep up with the light fun games no matter what the time.

      Amazing! Thank you :)

    I'll be attempting (if I don't get too busy) to run another game of
    "Panic on Wall Street"
    It's a game of up to 11 players with a whole bunch of crazy, noisy stuff is happening all the same time.
    Behind one side of a long table, a bunch of "sellers" are trying to auction off their stocks to the "investors" standing on the other side of the table - but all the auctions are happening at the same time. The investors can go after reliable stocks that only make them a little money, or high risk stocks, that could see them rake in money ... or crash.

    May I suggest Cards Against Humanity? >:)

    October 6, 2014

    • Christopher

      Cafe Games is *obsessed* with Cards Against Humanity. Usually you can find groups playing it for *hours*. I'm sure I saw a group of 18 at one stage.

      Often there are 2 or 3 copies of the giant "Bigger Blacker Box" sitting around, and last month people also brought "Glee Against Humanity" and "Cards Against Gallifrey"
