Board games...yeah!

As always, we will decide together what we feel like playing based on how many people show up and what games they bring with them.

 

Any board game is welcome...except Monopoly which I just detest :-) I have Pandemia, Scrabble, Scattergories, Pictionary, Mastermind, Uno, Boggle, Encore!, Rummikub, Apples to Apples, Ubongo, cards and more. And, bring your favorite(s) as well as a snack to share. I will provide coffee, tea and popcorn.

Location is my place near Skanstull...address will be sent a couple of days before the Meetup to all who RSVP yes.

 

Please note: the waiting list is MANUAL which means that if a spot opens up you will receive an e-mail. You then have to change your RSVP from "Waiting List" to "Yes" in order to reserve your spot.

Let the games begin!

    Oops seem like i forgot to add this information. I will bring munchkin bites and some chips. Seems like i did not receive any directions to the place tough. Probably because i forgot to respond here in time. So unless the organizer sees this and contacts me with an adress, it will be hard to get there.

    • Jonas Endasil S.

      Hi Miha, I won't come today, I was on the waiting list and made other plans in between. May be another time.

    Sorry that something out of plan happened and I could not make it to Sunday. I felt so bad about it and hope I can join you for the next time.

    I may not know many board games. I hope to get opportunity to learn in mean time. Although I can play chess, checkers, dominoes and some card games.

    November 8, 2013

  • Aamir B.

    Hello, I hope that I will come. I can bring some card to play. Although I' d like to play chess. I hope to bring something to share. :-)

      If you are still not sure by Friday then I will ask you to change your RSVP to no so someone else can take the spot. OK?

      November 5, 2013

    • Aamir B.

      This time , I will come for sure. :)

  • Dotan D.

    Will also bring Elemental Blast - a nice card game I supported on Kickstarter that arrived today.

    November 6, 2013

  • Sarah

    I'll bring more chips and some hummus. Unfortunately, I have no games to bring, but after trying Pandemia last time, I'm really interested in your "Forbidden Desert" game, Dotan!

    1 · November 4, 2013

    • Dotan D.

      We actually played "Forbidden Desert" last time. One loss and one win. Not too bad I would say (although the win could have easily become a loss).

      November 5, 2013

    • Dotan D.

      I am not fond of Pandemic although I have it on my iPad and will probably buy the expansions too if they become part of the app.

      November 5, 2013

  • Dotan D.

    So, as expected some games arrived but actually not the ones I was expecting. Which means more games are on the way and probably due next week ...

    This time I received:

    Gear & Piston - up to 6 players compete with each other in building an automobile. They will recruit parts, engage in espionage and sabotage and try to please the investors. Can they make it and who will win? I may be tempted to bring this one.
    It is a worker placement game so let me know if this sounds good to you.

    Byzantio - the last emperor has passed away with no heir and now the noble houses must engage in the battle for the next emperor. Up to 4 players can battle each other in this game of tactics and strategy. There is only a limited number of moves and each type can be played only a limited number of times. Can you use those to your best advantage?

    Let me know if I should bring any of those with me.

    Hi everyone,

    It's my first time here.

    So I don't know much about the culture here.
    I'll bring Chinese sesame cookies for snack and "Tickets to ride" for games to play.

  • Tommy

    Hi guys, I'll be bringing carrot sticks and dip for the games.

    1 · November 5, 2013

  • Cissi

    I can bring some olives. I like old fashioned classic boardgames like Monopol, Fia med knuff, The lost diamond

    November 5, 2013

    • Tommy

      Shh...be quiet about Monopoly... ;-)

      1 · November 5, 2013

  • Miha

    Hi there,

    I can bring some fruits and/or salty snacks... See you all there! It will be so much fun...

  • Eleni

    I think i'm going to bring some chocolate cookies and some chips

    1 · November 4, 2013

  • Dotan D.

    I will bring juice like last time and something more (not sure yet, what ever catches my eye in the ICA next door to you). As for games, there is a package waiting in the post so it may be something game related, otherwise:
    Rise of Augustus - a quick bingo style game where players compete with another for being the emperor of Rome

    Forbidden Desert - a cooperative game by Matt Leecock of Pandemic fame. Up to 5 survivors try to find their way out of the desert but a cruel storm is running lose and their last chance is being slowly buried under sand.

    7 Wonders - players take turns drafting cards and building their glorious civilization. Up to 7 players take part in this game and it involves some player interaction - i.e. those to your immediate left and right.

    I would rather not carry games for no reason but if someone feels like it: Last Will, Speicherstadt and Key Flower as well as Kolejka are available.

    1 · November 4, 2013

  • Dotan D.

    So many new games - I am thinking of bringing Speicherstadt and Last Will. If something from Kickstarter arrives (small chance but now that Essen is over...) I may bring it along as well.
