Wednesday night gaming

If you are new to London on Board check out this guide for new players. If you have any questions on the night or are having trouble getting into a game, then look out for the night's host, listed to the right.

If you plan on attending please RSVP. We only have 50 chairs and it gets uncomfortable for everyone if more people than that turn up. Similarly, please change your RSVP to no if it turns out you can't make it.

Attention!

It's full of: film and film-making, Doctor Who, science, feminism, Tolkien, SF&F academia, video games, roleplaying, Discworld, social gaming, SF&F,creative writing, Star Wars, queer fandom, steampunk, open culture, Star Trek, Whedon, skepticism, costuming, comics, anime and J-culture. And boardgaming of course. Get along to the forums for details and a longer discussion. Advance tickets on sale for a discount now.

    Excellent night of Mexico and Mesopotamia - Pax Porfiriana, Ur, Sumeria and then Indian Chief to finish.

    Had a great night with Baz, Sam and Bob getting though quite a few games. Really enjoyed playing Catalan for the first time, winning was a nice surprise too.

      I meant Catan its late

    One sprawling game of Carcassonne with Steve and Vincent and then Simon joined us and saved me from muddling through the two player rules for Citadels. Then a couple of quick games of Zombie Dice; one regular and one with the Double Feature expansion.

    March 13, 2013

  • Craig

    Really enjoyed my first session. Must thank Roger for the awesome game of SmallWorld and Simon for the fun 'reservoir dogs'-like game with guns! Look forward to next Wednesday.

    March 13, 2013

    • Simon H

      Were-pixies are the way to go!

      to go were? boldly?

  • Jacob T.

    Smashing, got to play two of my own for once. WOW:TAG is a roll and move but fun and a change from placing cubes (too long for what it is was the consensus I think). And got to dust off Jambo for a great come behind win (Okay, so Simon hadn't played before, but I'm ignoring that fact)

    March 13, 2013

  • Simon H

    Great game of Smallworld, I tied for first place which we couldn't resolve with the proper tie-break or a die roll. Call it a draw! Then played Cash & guns, Citadels and Zombie Dice.

    March 13, 2013

  • Steve N.

    Thanks to Stuart for the Carc tutorial! Does anyone have Dominion base game, as im keen to get a two player tutorial for this?

    March 13, 2013

    • Jacob T.

      I want to say there are a couple of online places to play it vs computer, but it is Thunderstone I'm thinking of. so if Thunderstone interested you, you can play on Facebook and yucata http://www.yucata.de/...­ I guess there might be dom out there somewhere.

      March 13, 2013

  • Roger (.

    Good night, too tired to stay longer but 3 games in 2 and a half hour is not bad. Next wekk I'll bring Poseidon for those who would like to have a feel of a playable 18XX, but not for those who play 18XX!

    March 13, 2013

  • Ronan

    Can I talk anyone in to a game of Clash of Cultures?

    March 7, 2013

    • Bijmeister

      Hearing that the game was not going ahead must be similar to how it feels to have ones armies decimated. Still won't stop me though. Thanks to Jacob for teaching the Warcraft adventure board game. Good fun (but lacking depth). I did kill Pooria's character (though dying seemed to have little detrimental consequences) so at least the weekly player death quotient was maintained.

      March 13, 2013

    • Roger (.

      So typical... Messieurs les Anglais tirez les premiers!

      March 13, 2013

  • Carl W.

    Had a great time tonight. Thanks to all involved!

    March 13, 2013

  • Vivienne R.

    We're going to bring Nexus Ops.

    March 11, 2013

    • Simon H

      Try keeping me away from this! Should be there around 6 as usual.

      March 11, 2013

    • Vivienne R.

      Apologies - I can't make it now :( Will bring it another time - we have the Avalon Hill edition.

      March 13, 2013

  • russell

    Newbies, currently it will be either me or Dan hosting, so lookout for one of us. I am wearing a bright yellow smiley face t-shirt! I might be planning some inter-galactic destruction with Galaxy Trucker and new expansion

    March 13, 2013

  • Robbie

    I should arrive about 6:30

    March 13, 2013

  • Chris O.

    Contracted a rather horrid cold, so I'm staying away for fear of spreading it to others.

    March 13, 2013

  • Jan W.

    Anyone for Carson city or power grid? Keen foray player games.

    March 11, 2013

    • Nathan P.

      Jan - I would be interested in Carson City. I haven't played it before. I should be there at about 6.

      March 13, 2013

    • Antony

      I love Powergrid and wouldn't mind that. Not played Carson City, but happy to give it a whirl if you don't mind teaching it. I will arrive about 5:30, so will see what's going down. :0

      March 13, 2013

  • Sam A.

    Be attending for the first time tonight, hope arriving at 6:15-6:20 isn't too much of a problem

    March 13, 2013

    • Martin

      Nope that's fine!

      March 13, 2013

  • Roger (.

    Small world Realms with me!

    March 13, 2013

  • Martin

    I am bringing my new purchase UR, which looks like a quick and pretty abstract civilisation game, along the lines of Tigris & Euphrates.

    March 12, 2013

    • russell

      that UR is pretty tricky!

    At last! I'm able to attend, for the first time. Looking forward to trying some new games.

    Hello Steve, Tara and Carl. Welcome. No problem about what time you turn up or how long you can stay. Most people will be there by half six but if you are a little late then it will just mean a short wait until a game finishes. There will be a host announced who will be there to answer any questions you have. Plenty of people will keep an eye out for new folk and point you in the right direction anyway. See you on Wednesday.

      Cheers Ronan. As I work just around the corner I'd say I'd be there 6pm ish if ok. Looking fwd to it.
