We played through the Game of Thrones boardgame a couple times last meetup. It was nice to switch things up from BSG. I'll bring GoT, BSG, and War of the Ring (2-4) players. Here's hoping we have enough participants to run two at once!
Since moving to Eugene, I've been looking to play some heavy strategy board games, but haven't found a group of like-minded folks. This meetup is for people who want to play something more cognitive than Apples to Apples (not that there's anything wrong with that!). Examples include: 1) The Battlestar Galactica Board Game (http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_minisite.asp?eidm=...) -- an award-winning game for 4-7 players that involves fighting in space, intrigue, secret loyalties, and so on. It's one of my favorites, and I have all the expansions. 2) A Game of Thrones Board Game (http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_minisite.asp?eidm=...) -- another award-winning game for 4-6 players. Think of it as a version of the classic Diplomacy game with a bunch of George RR Martin flavor thrown in. 3) Speaking of which... Diplomacy Some card games too, such as... 4) Dominion 5) Race for the Galaxy I hope there are some interested folks out there! There are venues downtown where we could play in the evenings and on weekends, such as The Barn Light. I also have access to rooms at UO where we might play if we want a quieter environment.
