Boardgame night at Overseas

  • May 17, 2014 · 8:00 PM
  • Overseas Club

Let's join to play some boardgames! The idea is very straightforward: come in, sit down and enjoy a game (or two or more), some drinks and (new) people in a refreshing (and with some brains) activity.

If you have a nice game to play and you want to share it, be it card or board, bring it and share the joy (the more the merrier). If you don't bring a game it's completely fine, hopefully others will bring one. And in the worst case scenario, the Overseas Club has a cache of games.

FAQ:

Q: I'm late, what should I do?

A: Please keep in mind that once groups start playing, it's difficult to allocate late comers into games and you'll have to wait until a group is done or new people arrive and a new gaming table can be founded (or you can host one). So try to be on time for the sake of everyone and yours ;).

Q: What kind of game can I bring?

A: Almost any kind of game. Card, dice, strategy, storytelling based games are all welcomed. Although, something to keep in mind: the tables available are a bit small for games with big "maps" or lots of gaming infrastructure. Also, games that last for many hours or with a strong component of strategy might not work that well in this environment, in particular for people just starting with games.

Card games have been very successful in this setting.

Q: What do I do if I bring a game?

A: The chances are that you might be the only one knowing how to play that particular game, so be prepared to be the host and teach how to play. It would be nice if you drop a shout down below saying that you're bringing a game. And if you want, to tell some details about it (for example title, number of players, or time required to play).

Q: Has everyone need to be playing the same game?

A: Not at all, there are plenty of games to be played.

Happy gaming!

    Hey, I'm afraid that despite warning I'm gonna be somewhat late (cca 1h). Hopefully I can catch round two of something or play a match of Bang! with some other latecomers.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
