    I had a great time playing Team Manager Blood Bowl (again!) as well as Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards duel at Mount Skullfyre. Some of the spells people were making during that game went beyond the basic notion of lunacy :)

      BBTM is quickly becoming one of my favourites. Even if I am yet to win one! Enjoyed epic spell wars too.

    Very enjoyable, sorry that I could not get there before 3pm but I only got off the wait list 24 hours earlier by which time I had booked up the morning.

    Struggled to get a game going of either Terra Mystica or Agricola but thanks to those that endured my Agricola rules explanation and played through a fun game.

    Even more thanks to Gabe for helping with rules and scoring!

    Anyway, squeezed in a quick two-player game of Ark Of The Covenant on a diddy table (thanks to Jules for score-keeping), then a seven-player game of Dixit Odyssey which had quite a few contemporary clues but I fought back with my tried and tested "Ozymandias" literary clue (that scored me zilch). Then a four-player game of Little Prince won by Graham and his pesky snakes.

      I liked Ozymandias - It got me a few points :p

    Great games of Yedo and Agricola with some good players. My 20 points from my 2 yedo bonus cards was a little greedy

    1 · May 27, 2013

    • Vika

      yes, let's ban the 1vp for 4 mon card, it's rediculuos

      May 28, 2013

    • Gabe C.

      Some day I will play Yedo.

      May 28, 2013

  • Michael

    Empty tables again despite the event being full with a wait list. This is getting silly!

      Dan, I wrote a long reply, but ran into the 1000 character limit. Will add it to the forum discussion. i suggest that you look at my status on the other meetups I'm part of...

      May 28, 2013

    • Dan H

      ok you organise some other meet up groups, I am sure they do well. I don’t think it helpful to the club and especially newbies if little gripes people have on a particular meetup are posted on the event walls. We had a problem with endless discussions to do with waiting lists earlier in the year being plastered all over event walls. We are aware of problems with attendance and over demand and if you want to post your views there already exists appropriate discussion forums.

  • David B.

    Very enjoyable indeed, it's always nice to get to know new people!

    May 27, 2013

  • Drewyd G.

    Is this still available for attending from around 6? Or can I just come to the pub anyway?

    May 27, 2013

    • Chris O.

      Not likely. We may be chucked out at 5pm due to it being a bank holiday

      May 27, 2013

    • Chris O.

      It's actually closing at 7pm now

      May 27, 2013

  • Vika

    Agricola and/or Yedo anyone? (Yedo only if Dan can bring it though)

    May 26, 2013

    • Gabe C.

      On my way, be there 1ish

      May 27, 2013

    • Gabe C.

      Actually, more like 15 min.

      May 27, 2013

  • blunder1983 (.

    Will be along about 1 with clash of cultures

    May 27, 2013

  • Zed

    Anyone up for a 4-player Settlers of Catan at 11:30am-ish? ... I think on my first-time attending I should work up from a game I know ... I'm happy for a 5/6 player game if anyone has any of the expansion packs? (I can bring the base game)

    May 26, 2013

    • Zed

      Great, see you in a a couple of hours.

      May 27, 2013

    • Zed

      Just at Stratford. Held up on the train. Running a little late will be there at 12.

      May 27, 2013

  • Stuart (.

    Warning, will be trying to rope somebody into a game of Carcassonne (or Hunters & Gatherers or Ark Of The Covenant) around 1:30...

    It's been ages and I'm insanely keen for a game of Battlestar. Will anyone be running a game?

    May 20, 2013

    • Jason

      Well that de-escalated quickly... I see Chris is bringing a +1 tho so we should be 'close' on numbers for making at least a 5 game..

      May 27, 2013

    • A former member
      A former member

      I am running a bit late unfortunately,and my +1 won't be there til ¬2ish

      May 27, 2013

  • Mike H.

    Keen to play Agricola or Terra Mystica but won't be able to get there until around 2pm - happy to go and collect either/both but this will add anouther 30 mins to the delay - please let me know if more copies of either are needed!

    May 27, 2013

    • Zed

      If be up for a game of Agricola. I've read a lot about it and fancy giving it a try out.

      May 27, 2013

  • Stuart J.

    Great! I'll be along later in the day (maybe 2ish?). I'll bring a copy of Cyclades with expansion if anyone wants to play it. My first real time too!

    May 27, 2013

    • Chris O.

      I'd be up for a game of Cyclades :)

      May 27, 2013

  • Hannah H.

    I love settler. Could u let me in?

    May 26, 2013

    • Zed

      Sure. What time are you arriving?

      May 27, 2013

  • Colin W C.

    I'm new

    May 26, 2013

  • Chris O.

    I'll be bringing games I picked up from the UK Games Expo

    May 26, 2013

    • Chris O.

      Being more specific; I shall bring along Exodus and Forbidden Desert, the latter was released at the show.

      May 26, 2013

  • Stuart J.

    Is the waiting list for the start time, or for general purposes? For example, is it worth showing up at 2pm with a few games?

    May 25, 2013

    • Vika

      unfortunately it's one waiting list for the whole event

      May 25, 2013

    • Jason

      But the wait lists can move quickly in the last 24hrs so definitely worth keeping an eye on if you are able to make a last minute slot

      May 26, 2013

  • Alun W.

    Does anybody have a copy of Super Dungeon Explore?

    May 21, 2013

    • Nick

      Would love to join this one! Playing for the first time though if a walk through the rules would be okay...?

      May 24, 2013

    • Chris O.

      I'm still painting it I'm afraid :( So yes I have it but it's not in a fit state to bring.

      May 25, 2013

  • Antony

    Think I may be bringing +1 for the first time and I'd love to get him involved in a 5 or 7 player BSG game. Is anyone doing that?

    May 22, 2013

  • Jason

    No waitlist for this one?
    (as in meetup.com is not allowing me to join one)

    May 21, 2013

    • Jason

      I think the meet up group has just been setup with the wrong tick boxes checked.... maybe we can tease rocky for having broken it :p

      May 21, 2013

    • Antony

      I messaged Rocky, there's a waitlist... so maybe it worked?

      May 22, 2013

  • Tony C.

    Will bring libertalia along. Not played it yet - anyone interested in drinking tum, shouting Aaaar! a lot and trying to work it out?

    1 · May 21, 2013

  • Rocky

    Welcome all, I will now bring some newbie friendly games and will be at the big table in front of the front door :), just come to me and I will see to it that you find a game :)
