FallCon presents: Brentwood Coop Boardgames Meetup

  • Oct 19, 2013 · 11:30 AM
  • Brentwood Co-op

Presented by your friends at www.fallcon.com.


A Saturday afternoon/evening of gaming starting at 11:30 am and going until 9:30 pm at the Brentwood Coop Auditorium.


What kinds of games do you play?
We play a variety of board and card games at this event. If you have any specific types of games you wish to play, please bring them with you but there is always plenty to choose from. Please visit Board Game Geek for more details on the kinds of games we play.

I don't know how to play these games
There is nothing to worry about as there are plenty of people who are more than willing to teach games. Members are friendly, enthusiastic and love games and gaming!

    I had a great time playing Spyrium, Rialto, Star Wars X-Wing and Bora Bora!

    I'm trying an experiment, and if you could make your way over to the Geek and add/comment on my geeklist (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/164109/calgary-tabletop-meetup-october-19th-brentwood-c)

    I want to see what sort of interest there is in contiuing the conversation about the games we played!

    See you all in a couple of weeks.

      Hey Darren, how do I get on your mailing list for future updates on board game days you may have in the future?

      October 20, 2013

  • Brendan

    Great, as always. Maybe I'll actually show up for the full session next month. :-p

    October 19, 2013

  • Tim O.

    Awesome day. Thanks Jason for teaching (and letting me win) Firefly. Thanks Rande and Meaghan too for some great games!

    October 19, 2013

  • Jacqueline J.

    What was that super cool-looking epic space game with little plastic ships being played at the first table today?

    October 19, 2013

  • Jeremy K

    Can't make this one, it turns out.

    October 19, 2013

  • Jacqueline J.

    I realize I probably should have asked this before but... Is it okay to just be super-newbies and show up, looking lost? Or should I have planned to participate in a game before now? (I didn't recognize any of the ones being talked about).

    1 · October 19, 2013

    • Rande F.

      Its encouraged to show up and jump in new games. There's always someone willing to help you learn.

      October 19, 2013

    • David_Miller

      By all means, come and we would be delighted to teach.

      October 19, 2013

  • Katelyn E.

    Sorry to bother - I literally just heard about this website/specific meet up group today. I take it from what it's mentioning on the "attending" list that max capacity is 50 people :( ?

    October 18, 2013

    • Brad

      I agree, you should come Katelyn.

      October 18, 2013

    • Tim O.

      Yes Katelyn, absolutely come. We are showing 47 RSVPs now. We do need to be careful not to go too far with this in future as there is a limit due to fire regulations (I suspect) and we would not want to lose our priviledges with Coop. Best if everyone can keep RSVPs accurate.

      October 19, 2013

  • Marc D.

    I was looking forward to going to this for the whole day tomorrow, but a last minute emergency means that I won't be able to make it until 6-7pm :( I'm still up for trying new games. Darren, I really liked Trains and Belforte. Any chance you might bring those?

    October 18, 2013

    • Darren B.

      I will add those to the Bin!

      October 18, 2013

    • Shane K

      I've also got Trains; would love to get a play in.

      October 19, 2013

  • Brendan

    Hoping to play a TS league game for the heck of it. Would like to start right around 11:30 if possible. Any takers?

    October 16, 2013

    • jgbaxter

      Put me in your 'maybe' column. :)

      October 16, 2013

    • Gordon P.

      i'm not in the league but I'd be happy to play for fun if you haven't found somebody yet. don't own it though

      October 19, 2013

  • Curt

    Probably bringing Suburbia, Legends of Andor, Walnut Grove and Seasons, as I haven't gotten around to playing them yet. Would play any of them if interested, or look at what else is new on the table.

    October 18, 2013

    • David_Miller

      If you would like a teacher for seasons I would be delighted

      October 18, 2013

  • Darren B.

    If there is anything from the FallCon library you would like me to bring along, please let me know....

    I am planning on bringing Firefly, Freedom, Takenoko, Spyrium, Bruges, and a bunch of lighter fare (6 Nimmt!, Ubongo, Ricochet Robots, etc)

    2 · October 18, 2013

    • Darren B.

      David - I can bring it - but I haven't played it yet!

      October 18, 2013

    • Brad

      Funny, that was on Tom Vassel's top 100 games list video that he released today. Hmmmm...

      October 18, 2013

  • James G.

    Somehow I got bumped from the list... but I was about the 7th to declare my attendance. ?

    Anyway, we should arrive sometime after 12. I'm up for any game whose duration is approximately 1 hour.

    If you happen to bring Small World, Murray, I'd be up for another game of that.

    October 18, 2013

    • James G.

      Oops, nevermind - now it says I'm in.

      October 18, 2013

  • Gord W.

    Is anyone bringing Takenoko?

    October 17, 2013

    • Darren B.

      I can bring Takenoko Gord, but I haven't played it in a year or more.

    Andean Abyss at 11:30am anyone?

    1 · October 16, 2013

    • Shane

      I also had an interest in trying this out. If anyone has an extra copy maybe we'll get two games going?

      October 18, 2013

    • Darren B.

      Well, Bill has a copy, so if he shows, he will have one ;)

      October 18, 2013

  • jgbaxter

    Would be interested in learning Hannibal if anyone wants to teach it.

    October 16, 2013

    • jgbaxter

      Hi Jacqueline, dungeon roll doesn't really appeal to me, thank you for the offer it's appreciated.

      October 17, 2013

    • Jacqueline J.

      Alright, np. :)

      October 18, 2013

  • Brendan

    For Meagan (and any others who find themselves on the wait list): show up anyway. Not everyone who RSVPs attends at the same time, nor for the full length of the event, so we're unlikely to have 50+ in the room at any one time.

    Darren, as the event organizer, reserves the right to whip me with a wet noodle if I'm wrong about this. [:)]

    (And to anyone who has to bail in the meantime, please update your RSVP accordingly.)

    October 18, 2013

    • Brendan

      Lovely--the emoticons that work in the forums don't work here in the comments.

    Relatively new to town and don't know manny people. Looking to learn some new games and meet new people.

    October 16, 2013

    • Brendan

      Welcome to the group, Emmaline. I'll be happy to teach some games, pending my availability--hoping to play Twilight Struggle foremost. :-)

      October 18, 2013

  • Brad

    Can someone teach Spyrium?

    1 · October 16, 2013

  • Brad

    I'd like to set up a game of Space Cadets, if anyone's interested.

    October 17, 2013

    • Curt

      I'd 2t1

      October 17, 2013

    • Curt

      i'd try it out if you're starting it near the beginning.

      October 17, 2013

  • Ben

    As promised, I've set up a No-ship Math trade that will coincide with this meetup. Got too many games from Fallcon? Played something at Fallcon and hope to trade it in? Games collecting dust? Trade them! Information can be found at the geeklist, or feel free to ask me.

    Hey everyone! Sorry it has been so long since our last Meetup - September is kind of crazy getting our annual convention up and running!

    Can't wait to catch up with all of you again!

    September 19, 2013

    I'm new to this community. I'm hoping to bring a guest or two and looking forward to meeting new people and playing games I've never had a chance to try. See you there!
