[Apr] Cafe Games: Big Saturday Boardgames Day

Come learn & play fun board games while socialising!

Friends welcome! Over-competitive types need not apply. The idea is light-hearted interaction over some drinks and games.



"Eat, drink and be merry!"

Join us in a relaxed cafe PUB! environment, where food and drink are in plentiful supply as we amuse ourselves with weird and wonderful games.

GOLD COIN donation appreciated - helps with costs.

VENUE: This venue can cope with more than 100 people, so space is not a problem!!

Don't expect serious hard-core strategy games, it's usually more social games like Pictionary, Cranium, Jenga, Cluedo or Trivial Pursuit, or even card games like Uno, Bang! or 500 :-) 
If you've never played these games before, we're more than happy to show you how.

Yes, I expect some people will bring more strategic "Euro" games ... that's fine, there will be something for everyone.

NOTE: Because this venue doesn't have its own games, PLEASE bring along any games you can, even if it's just a deck of cards (available Coles, Safeway, Petrol stations ...etc)

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

A good rule of thumb is picking games that last no longer than an hour. Sure, feel free to settle down for a 5 hour game of Monopoly or Risk, but people enjoy moving around the group. If you're uncertain about a game, just bring it and see if anyone's keen.


Starts: 12 midday or whenever you roll in. 
Finishes: 11pm

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)

    Yes, I am a Rummikub player. You count me in on a game or two! (Count me in, as in counting numbers with Rummikub, my attempt at humour, ha!) Plus I can bring along my copy of the game as well:)

      Hi Marissa, I really wish I could make it to the National at 3.30pm, but I do have another event I have been invited to on the same afternoon which I can't get out of. I am keen to come along to the next one, can you count me in for that?

    Hey what a fun time so many games so little time!! Solution: play on at someone's house till 2am! If anyone is keen to get together for "party" games before the next meet up in a month please contact me as I am going to arrange something. So games like taboo, cranium, Pictionary mania, dixit (thanks Christian for introducing it to me it's gone to top of the list!)

      @Stuart: sorry! I'll be there but not until around 6-ish. I think you live out my way so perhaps a game day at my house one weekend might be easier :-)
