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.

    A fantastic first game of Game of Thrones, with awesome host Ewan - cheers dude!

    Managed to squeeze in at the minute from the end of a massive wait list! Played (and lost) Pandemic - 4p, 5 epidemics. Then it all went downhill (!) with Bunny Bunny Moose Moose, No Thanks and something else equally cerebral which I can't even remember, I'm afraid (-;

    Played Carcassonne: Hunters & Gatherers with the Scout expansion. The agriculture tile was a complete 'mare to score at the end as it was in a sprawling meadow. Think the expansion's a bit of a game-changer though but glad I played with them to see how a session panned out.

    Then a little coloured triangle game whose name evades me (Viz-something?), Citadels and then Resistance which was a joy just to see a crushed Bonnie Kate.

      I was drained after that stuff. Only going home and reading about The Resistance to I feel like I now understand more than 10% of the strategy!

      April 11, 2013

  • Mike F.

    I feel bad that I was so poor at The Resistance that my "resistance" team suffered too. But I think I've found The Resistance IRC thing here, so now I can get hot at it: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=%23playresistance

    Excellent as per normal

    Really enjoyed On The Underground for the second night running. Enjoyed Nicht Die Bohne! rather less, and hope I didn't spoil it for everyone else by playing semi randomly (and winning - ahem).

    April 11, 2013

  • Nadine

    Great evening of short games: King of Tokyo, Settlers, Zombie Dice, Get Bit, Transamerica and The Resistance. Thank you all!

    April 11, 2013

  • Dávid T.

    Two new games, two must buys :)
    Already ordered King of Tokyo, now I just need to find someone willing to part with a black box Glory to Rome (preferably with KS promos) :)

    April 11, 2013

  • Claire

    Pandemic was a lot of fun despite losing

    Hunters & Gatherers: asymmetric jubilance
    Vizia: some embarrassment
    Citadels: more embarrassment
    Resistance x4: Triumphed again!

  • Simon W.

    Netrunner was SERIOUS BUSINESS last night enjoyed it! :D

    April 11, 2013

  • Ali

    Big thanks to Simon, Nadine and Alex for a fun filled evening of Settlers, Get bit, Zombie Dice and King of Tokyo :)

    April 11, 2013

    Fun night, good round of sentinels.

  • Jacob T.

    Not as bad at Bunny Bunny as I thought I would be -I was bad, just not as bad as I thought I would be.
    And of everything I played my favourite was Adam's dice-space-rolling-game (and I would have won if it wasn't for those pesky kids.... and my inability to do math)

    April 11, 2013

  • Dávid T.

    Can somebody bring/teach Glory to Rome? I'm first on waiting list, so I hope I'll fit in :)

    April 8, 2013

    • Ian P.

      If I manage to get in I'll bring my copy too (and can teach)

      April 9, 2013

    • Roger (.

      I should be there in 10-15 minutes start without me if Ian brought his game

      April 10, 2013

    Always looking for opponents for Android: Netrunner!

    April 7, 2013

    • Mike

      Damn! Won't be able to make it... stuck waiting at home waiting for a delivery.

      April 10, 2013

    • Simon W.

      Going to a wee bit late, going to aim to arrive around 6

      April 10, 2013

  • Simon H

    Lots of drop outs but silver linings and all that - I sneaked in with minutes to go (-:

    2 · April 10, 2013

  • AndyB

    So, Rocky, what are we going to play? I have Pandemic, On The Underground, Carpe Astra and Space Hulk Card Game in my bag. Not that we have to play any of those, of course.

    April 9, 2013

    • Martin S

      What time are you planning on starting ?

      April 10, 2013

    • AndyB

      Not sure. Hope to be out of here by five, if not before, since it's been one of those days. Should be at the Herring by half five, come what may.

      April 10, 2013

    Will bring Hawaii and some smaller games.

    1 · April 10, 2013

    • Lloyd

      I'll bring your copy of For Sale.

      1 · April 10, 2013

    • AndyB

      Would love to play Hawaii if it fits with plans.

      April 10, 2013

  • Lloyd

    Bez, I'll bring Tank on Tank along, but it may be too busy to play it. Any other requests from anyone? http://boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/sweetsweetdoughnuts

    1 · April 10, 2013

    • Lloyd

      Alas, I do not. You may need to filter the collection by 'owned'.

      April 10, 2013

    • Edward M.

      Well I'd never say no to a game of Bunny Bunny Moose Moose...

    hi all, im a newbie who will be coming along tomorrow evening, will try and be prompt but if anyone feels like teaching me an (easy) game I would be more than happy to learn!

    1 · April 9, 2013

    • Behrooz S.

      Hi Sarah,
      Maybe check out stuart's epic carc or Hunters and Gatherers. Those are simple-ish, classic games.

      If you just loiter around the games collection, games will be starting constantly and you can make suggestions regarding the game-type or just join in whatever looks good. I think it's relatively rare that everyone playing knows the game so don't worry about needing to be taught a new set of rules!

      April 10, 2013

  • Ali

    Alex/Dave should be there for 5.30 tonight. If you aren't there til later I'll jump on for a short game of something or other...be good to game together again though.

    April 10, 2013

    • David H.

      Couldn't get you a spot on game of thrones in the end. Did pre-warn you would be interested, but they were expecting a confirmation. We should plan for next week!

      April 10, 2013

    • Ali

      ah NP - will put myself on the waiting list , just in case. Otherwise next week it is.

      April 10, 2013

  • Ewan W.

    Whose up for a Game of Thrones?
    I can bring the game if there is interest, already have one person down so four slots free.

    April 8, 2013

    • Ewan W.

      Sorry Piero, looks like we already have six players but if someone drops out you can play.

      April 10, 2013

    • Ali

      count me in or on the waiting list if someone drops out :)

      April 10, 2013

  • Jacob T.

    Karl, would you be bringing Filou again? I actually bought a copy after you taught it, but is not an easy day for me to bring games in. Be handy for me to have a light game I can teach if necessary (and that I like).
    Otherwise anyone bringing any Ameritrashy shooty bang bang games?

    April 10, 2013

    • Jacob T.

      Actually Karl, ignore that. Turns out I have space in my bag if I throw out my work stuff.

      April 10, 2013

    • Karl B.

      Huzzah for being too lazy to reply earlier!

      1 · April 10, 2013

  • Mike F.

    I'll be bringing along Hansa Teutonica, Castle of Burgundy and The Manhattan Project unless there are zero takers! Players?

    April 8, 2013

    • Chris K.

      Hi mike, happy to make up the numbers with all of these games. Hope you got space still. I'll be there around 6. Cheers, chris

      April 9, 2013

    • Robbie

      Ok great so game commencement at 6:10. Very excited.

    Alas, didn't think I would move up from the Waitlist so made other plans. I hope to meet everyone next time!

    "Ameritrashy"? No, might have some Eurotrashy stuff though.Will check... (wink) on waitlist though so probably cant make it anyway until next time. Have fun though!

    April 10, 2013

  • Stuart (.

    I'll be playing a long game of Carcassonne around seven when Csilla arrives; using inns, cathedrals, mayors, pigs, trade goods, ferries plus king & robber baron (not wagons, barns, builders and abbeys though). May try to squeeze in a game of Carcassonne: Hunters & Gatherers before or after that too.

    April 9, 2013

    • Stuart (.

      No, I don't want meeples landing in people's drinks.

      April 9, 2013

    • Behrooz S.

      If I get off the waiting list, I'd like to join in. Really want to try H&G! Who else is playing and how many more spaces?

      April 9, 2013

  • Frank M.

    I'll bring Falling Goblin Edition and The Hobit Card game

    April 9, 2013

  • Edward M.

    Anyone up for the Manhattan Project?

    April 3, 2013

    • Edward M.

      I'd also be interested in a game of Terra Mystica if someone can bring it.
