Saturday Game Night - OVER 9000.

  • February 23, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Our regular game night. We'll play various geeky board and card games. All attendees are welcome to bring games of their own, and we'll all decide what to play. If enough people are there to warrant it, we can split into two or more groups.

Our special theme tonight is:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We'll have a - sadly small - selection of anime-themed board games, including:

Super Dungeon Explore

Lupin the 3rd

Tanto Cuore

Shadow Hunters

Weiss Schwarz

....and that's it. I mean, literally, there's really nothing else worth mentioning. Board games seem to be the last frontier for anime to invade. There are four other games that all have horrible ratings: Collateral Damage, Anime Madness (a CCG from the 1996 CCG boom), Tentacle Bento, and a card game based off of the tabletop RPG Big Eyes, Small Mouth (which is actually a great game). I did order a game called Kanzume Goddess that should release this month, but who knows? But the games I have should be quite fun. There should be plenty of time for other games, as well.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

-I am setting a limit of 14 people, including myself, as that is about all I can accommodate. If you REALLY don't think you're going to be able to make it, please don't RSVP Yes. And if your plans change, please change your RSVP to No as soon as you can, so others can join in.

- As always, one or more beagles may be in the house, so plan accordingly if you are allergic.

- While some refreshments MAY be on hand, for the most part, I ask people to bring stuff that they'd be willing to share. There's no requirement for this, but chipping in is always appreciated.

    Well, id say we all got our dungeons explored last night. Highlights include, Bugbear eating frozen stuffed crust pizza with cardboard, Jaime killing the final boss. Me using teleport potion and resurrect, and throughly getting our asses kicked by Dr. Doom and his endless army of Killbots. Yay ! oh, and also demolishing an entire bag of Funyons in record time.

    I just backed another kickstarter game, check it out:
    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1234131468/machine-of-death-the-game-of-creative-assassinatio

    I backed for the version with all the expansion content. I have the book and it is awesome.

      Dude there's apparently a ton of scenarios...he went into excruciating detail about all of them in yesterday's update. One of the modes is called The Day Off, where you don't try to kill anyone, you just try to perform mundane chores.

      (From the game description)
      ""as in the comic, Fujiko Mine can betray the group to try to escape with the treasure on her own!""

      I'll have a close eye on you mang.

    Fun fact: a game I just got, The Castle of the Devil, has had an average rating of 6.66 on BoardGameGeek for some time.

    What time does this start? This page says 6pm, but my confirmation email says 3pm to 6pm. It's a little confusing.

    February 18, 2013

    • Nicholas

      It's 6PM. I have no idea why the confirmation email would say that...does anyone else's say that? Anyways, on Saturday it's always 6 EXCEPT on March 2, which will have both a time and venue change. Any weeknight games are at 7.

    I'm not much of a CCG guy, but Ani-Mayhem was pretty awesome. I have a bunch of cards around somewhere.

    I have two of the Weiss Schwarz starter decks that have been released in english. It's a Japanese trading card game where all the cards are anime and video game licenses. The only english cards are from Fate/Zero, Madoka, and Disgaea. Though there is a surprisingly large US following and there's english translations for every card.

    1 · February 10, 2013

    • Nicholas

      Wow, never heard of that. But upon investigation it looks great. I love Fate and Disgaea, and a lot of the other boosters are from some of my fav anime...But is the game actually good?

      February 10, 2013

    • Nicholas

      Bought a few trial decks, can't wait to try them out. The thing is, some of the Japanese trial decks I want the most - like Nanoha - are crazy expensive at this point. =P

    I'm requesting that the featured game be Super Dungeon Explore.
    Looks like a fun interesting Co-op , D&D style. (and it reminds me of Dragonquest )

      Was already planning to make that part of anime night, which coincidentally was planned for this night.
