Games night at Ware, 5 maximum

  • November 15, 2013 · 7:45 PM

Another games night at Tony's house (in Ware) as we're all getting a bit desperate for a game what with the extended 3 week gap between meetups.

Possibly playing Dominant Species if it turns up on time, or possibly some other 5 player game (feel free to suggest one if you want to bring one along).

    Tony - thankyou very much for hosting - had a really good time even if I were last on the score board - never mind!

    Had a really great time although I think I need another play of Navegador to form a proper opinion - now that I realise some of the intricacies of the game I would love another stab at it (also to prevent John from just producing everything!)

    Anywho - good time and good company - TYVM

      yes, and good new for me as you all kept pushing the price of the raw materials down, which meant more profit for me on the finished goods...

      November 16, 2013

    • Tony C.

      Yes - I reckon a big part of this game is trying to find your own 'niche' to make progress in areas that others aren't. Oh, and next time, I'll get more popcorn, since John's appetite knows no bounds! ;-)

    Terrific night Navigador is a really fun & interesting game, thanks Tony C for having us & John & Karl for turning up & playing. Btw John copied me & won, fluke vs jammy 8p!!!

    November 16, 2013

    • Tony C.

      Pah - I demand a recount! ;-)

      November 16, 2013

    • Tony C.

      John - what pic? I can't see any photos uploaded? And it'd be just fine if it stayed that way! ;-)

      November 16, 2013

  • Tony C.

    Thanks to everyone for coming, I really appreciated it. Was very enjoyable, and I really quite like that 'rondel' mechanism that previously I'd heard so much about! Turns are pretty darn quick. :-)

    Still looking at Belfort, plus Navegador....comments welcome!

      Where's that 'sticking your tongue out' emoticon when you need it? ;-)

      8p

    So 19:45 start then?

    November 15, 2013

  • Karl W.

    Well I'm certainly cleared to go out after work tomorrow night - Becca knows i'm not coming straight home ;-)

    So... currently my plan is to do my shift and then give Tony a txt / call to ensure that not all places are filled and that another player is still welcome to the table?

    I'll play pretty much anything - does that help?

      so what is this mysterious other one!! if we get there at[masked]pm we could squeeze an 45-60min game? 3 games? Oh, go on!!

      November 15, 2013

    • Tony C.

      Paul, the 'other one' is Navegador. Might be 90 mins. D.S. is much longer, especially on first play through, although we can play the shorted variant - perhaps 2 - 3 hrs? So, perhaps we should try Navegador first at 7.45, then we might have that finished by the time Karl gets there? Then try D.S....?

  • Sarantis M.

    I am 90% sure, so I am saving the spot! :) If anything goes off, I will know by Friday morning!

    November 12, 2013

    • Sarantis M.

      True! You never told me if you liked it after all! Did you manage to teach it to your son?

      November 14, 2013

    • Tony C.

      He surprised me by not really showing as much interest as I thought he would. Just goes to show, you can never predict what children will do! ;-)

      November 15, 2013

  • john

    Time is running out... do we have a plan? Are we going for a staggered start, or just jumping in to a 3 player DS/Navegador?

    November 14, 2013

    • Sarantis M.

      Guys, unfortunately I still don't know if I would make it, but the chances that I'll make it look grim... Please arrange without taking me into consideration, because if I manage to come will be completely a last minute call!!!

      November 14, 2013

    • Tony C.

      OK Sarantis - thanks for updating.

      November 15, 2013

  • Karl W.

    As always Tony m8 - work commitments - working til 20:30 in Harlow - if you have a spare space still on Friday and you don't mind me dropping in about 9ish I'll come along too!

    Won't put my name down however if there's another who can attend right from the off!

    I'm considering trying to get a Sunday Ware event on again - got a whole new venue available - "the Punch House" - please don't read too much into the name (it's a really lovely venue with some mahoosive tables) - reckon there would be interest John or are the the ASDA meets sufficient for the SBGC / you guys (and gals)?

    • Karl W.

      i've no idea about agricola but caverna has absolutely got a best part - oodles of them! - its really that good a game and I would quite seriously consider putting it into my collection - would put it up there with KeyFlower!

      November 14, 2013

    • Tony C.

      High praise indeed!

      November 14, 2013

  • Tony C.

    What do people (John/Paul so far!) think - Sarantis and Karl can make 9, but not 8....we could arrange the games to suit...?

    November 13, 2013

    • Tony C.

      Yes - perhaps an hour of something followed by a 3-hour..? But if Karl and Sarantis can't make it, then perhaps D.S. ;-)

      November 14, 2013

    • Paul H.

      I'd prefer if we can be finished by midnight, I have a tough time playing when I am not tired!!

      November 14, 2013

  • Duncan H.

    You may notice I have disappeared recently. I am working away from home a lot. This will end in the early New Year when I willl back with a vengeance.

    I would love to attend on Friday, but need to spend the evening with my faamily as I am just back from a trip away.

    See you aall soon.

    November 13, 2013

    • Tony C.

      Ah yes..."doing a John"...soon to be a new entry in the Urban Dictionary..! ;-)

      November 13, 2013

    • Paul H.

      In amoungst all these cartoon characters I think you may be getting away from the original derivation of "doing a John". Duncan, Tony C & John all seem to have someting in common, hmm!!

      November 13, 2013

  • Tony C.

    Dominant Species will arrive on time, so are we OK to try this? Else Navegador if I get that...?

    November 13, 2013

  • Paul H.

    Unfortunately can't do Friday. What happened to the Thursday slot which is easier for me :)

    November 12, 2013

    • john

      It's next week, there was a 3 week gap instead of 2 for some reason

      November 12, 2013

    • Paul H.

      Cheers John. I was wondering.

      November 12, 2013

  • Chris Y.

    Due to a restraining order...

    November 11, 2013

    • Tony C.

      Looks that way! :-(

      November 12, 2013

    • Chris Y.

      None taken!

      November 12, 2013

  • john

    Sooooo.... I've got no 5 player games, how about you TC?

    November 11, 2013

    • Tony C.

      I forgot Smallworld....

      November 11, 2013

    • Tony C.

      ...and if Dominant Species turns up...well, a brand new game, just waiting to be played...2 - 6 players....
