None of my friends have an interest in philosophically-informed discussions, and it would be nice to meet people who do. P.S. I have a degree in philosophy, specialising in the philosophy of science.
Philosophy of science and technology. Postmodernism, although I don't know very much about it.
Hi John, I hope you had an incredible weekend in the sun? My mates putting on a cool (honestly it really is) singles event THIS SAT 19th May for the over 38's. The female tickets sold out ages ago and she needs some cool guys like you! You look perfect!! Its an event for people that dont like singles events so none of the awkward stuff that other parties have. Please check it out (and come!). Let me know what you think x
John, I enjoyed Napoleonic Wars very much. I only played it once, many moons ago at the beginning of my gamerhood, but I caught on fairly quickly - it's not overly complex. Like many strategic-level multiplayer CDGs, it suffers from a bit of chaos, but that's part of the fun - I'd avoid it if you're looking for a game that hews closely to history.
Hi John, if you are on for July 4 I am on. My address is [masked]. We should also chat about war games.
Absolutely! But I also want to get a game of Age of Industry in. It's a quickie compared to Twilight Struggle. What time are you expecting to arrive?
July 4 is booked then, barring force majeure (my mother is seriously ill). Yes, I will have to admit that I am primarily a war gamer. One of the Old Guard. If you feel like a war game sometime, you will find me highly sympathetic.
Can you do the meeting on July 4? I haven´t played it at all, but I have heard a lot of good stuff about it. I have played 1960, which is said to be similar. I have it, and will be able to read the rules beforehand.
That would have been a nice idea. However, that is actually one of the few Sundays that I cannot make it. When can you make it next time?
Hi John. Welcome to the BIS London Space Meetup. Thanks for joining! Looking forward to meeting you at the Royal Society talk. Cheers, Chris.
