Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)

Tonight we have an early Hallowe'en theme. In a dark dark room why not play a dark dark game? Monsters, horror, Avalon - anything terrifying will do. OK maybe not Avalon...

Of course you are welcome to play anything you like!

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.

Please also remember to treat games well and abide by our very few rules. Oh, and have fun!

    My first meetup after Essen. I can't even imagine what I'll want to play. Probably everything.

      Played both for the first time. Quantum - ok game. Lots of dice rolling so not completely my bag BUT winning by being very vicious is lots of fun. Twin Tin Bots I liked a lot. Seems like it would be a good educational game for kids as well.

    Started with Spanish Coup. Then two games of Ghost Stories - perfectly on theme and we won! Go team! A quick round of TransAmerica before finishing of with - you guessed it - Avalon :D Thanks all

    On theme I played Gloom but countered this with pink Jenga where Anthony won by default because of Shez's clumsy fingers. Also played TransAmerica and TransEuropa, Carcassonne: Hunters & Gatherers and Avalon. My heart filled with joy to see Ark Of The Covenant getting a play too.

    Sadly, a bit off theme but hey ho! Got to play Ankh Morpork, RftG, cash n guns and was taught Gloom. The latter was a close call, thematically, being the Cthulu version.

  • Tom

    Somehow I won all my games...fun night. Sticheln hurts.

    October 30, 2013

  • Tom

    Running late. Bad host! See you all soon.

    October 30, 2013

  • Mike Q

    I will bring Ghost Stories. Be a monk, exorcise some ghosts, lose horribly. Co-operative undead-bashing for up to 4.

    October 26, 2013

    • Jacob T.

      Which means I don't need to bring my copy anymore. I felt obliged as it was the only time I had a game on-theme :)

      October 28, 2013

    • Mark H.

      Unfortunately, it doesn't look like I'll be able to make it this evening after all. Sorry!

  • Antony

    This should have an early Hallowe'en theme:)

      I'm surprised there isn't a Halloween carc out yet. Murder on the roads. Pentagrams instead of monasteries. Spooky castles. Zombie meeples...

      October 30, 2013

    • Ben O.

      I have brought some 'ghosts' and have a vague, mostly stolen set of rules for a carcassonne variant.

      October 30, 2013

  • Richard

    Anyone fancy the new Uwe Rosenberg game, Caverna: The Cave farmers?

    October 30, 2013

    • Sander

      sure, starting at 6 ish?

      October 30, 2013

    • Richard

      sounds good

      October 30, 2013

  • Stuart (.

    Somebody should bring Gloom.

    October 26, 2013

    • Stuart (.

      Cool, I've only got the Cthulhu decks too but not gotten round to reading the rules properly so won't bring mine then. Have only played Gloom once but we weren't allowed to do the storytelling aspect sadly, so a proper game would be good.

      October 30, 2013

    • Antony

      I have my deck in my pocket, base deck only, but may be a bit late.

      October 30, 2013

  • Ben O.

    Bringing a horrifying game, a game that has the power to fill a certain game reviewer into an unearthly rage... The dreaded Vasco Da Gama!
    I also have the zombie plateau building game where undead legions of craftsmen, architects and labourers attempt to rebuild the city of Rome, as if it were glorious 63AD! Okay, fine, I don't really have any spooky games. I do have Gloom though.

      Oh, well done, now I want a Pacman worker placement game as well... there is gaping void in my life as Lloyd FAILED to pick up a game for me at Essen (okay he got one for me, but, still, gaping void)

      October 30, 2013

    • Ben O.

      A Pacman worker placement game? Hmm getting a cease and desist letter from Namco would be pretty cool.

      I, too, have a shiny Essen game shaped void. My phone attempting to autocorrect Essen to Essential is rather apt.

      October 30, 2013

  • Tom

    I am your host for tonight, though I won't get there till about 6.15. Find me if you're new and I'll help you get a game and generally be nice. No really, I mean it.

    October 24, 2013

    • Tom

      I also have Sticheln, because it's just evil.

      October 30, 2013

  • Mike Q

    Also going to bring Werewolf Inquisition. Hidden identity game similar to Resistance/Avalon with villagers to protect from Team Werewolf.

    Have only played once with 4 and would be interested to see how it plays with a larger group. Will probably play toward the end of the evening.

    Could be the on-theme Avalon replacement as we don't need to play Avalon every night, right guys? Guys..?

    • Shehzad A.

      We played it today. It's good.

      October 29, 2013

    • Antony

      Count me in for werewolf.

      October 30, 2013

  • Simon H

    For a number of reasons (mostly related to a lack of personal organisational skills!) I can't be bringing,and thus 'running' the otherwise perfectly themed Mansions of Madness. On the other hand, if anyone *else* can bring their copy (and play Keeper) I'd be more than happy, as an investigator, to be driven insane - which is what usually happens (-;

    October 29, 2013

  • Michael H.

    Looking forward to joining for the first time tomorrow!

    1 · October 29, 2013

  • Ian P.

    I hopefully will get to go to this. If so I'll bring some fresh Essen games.

    2 · October 26, 2013

    • Ian P.

      Speaking of that, did anyone get a study in emerald? It would be very appropriate for this lob.

      October 27, 2013

    • Ian P.

      Well I can't make it, family plans have intervened

      October 28, 2013

  • Tom

    I'll bring Zombie Dice and Little Devils as the only remotely on-theme games I own.

    October 26, 2013

  • NicolaRihan

    I can 't get enough gaming!

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.
