Afterwork Session (1h b4 Join & Play): DICE FORGE
Heroes, stand ready! The gods are offering a seat in heaven to whichever hero defeats their rivals. Your courage and wits will be your most precious allies as you use divine dice to gather resources along the road to victory. Your divine dice are exceptional, with removable faces! Customize your dice to make them more powerful as the game progresses. Sacrifice gold to the gods to obtain enhanced die faces. Upgrade your dice to produce the resources you need. Overcome ordeals concocted by the gods to grow in glory and earn rewards. Skillfully manage the luck of the dice and take charge of your destiny. Only the greatest will ascend to the heavens! Dice Forge is a development game featuring innovative mechanics based on dice with removable faces. In this dice crafting game, players build their own dice. Roll your dice, manage your resources, complete ordeals before your opponents and explore multiple winning strategies. Now you control the luck of the dice! How To Play Dice Forge (https://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=JNZqKqLy4no) Dice Forge is in my mind without a doubt the 1st place contender for "Spiel des Jahres 2018". It’s a family game that is so close to perfection, it’s almost unbelievable that this could be possible. Some people would argue and find minor faults in this game, but the more you play it the more you’ll find that any negative critic is ill founded. The game play is smooth and fast. There’s barely any downtime. You’re always doing something. On each turn everybody rolls the dice and everybody adds the resources to their tableau, but only the active player makes an action and a second one, if he chooses to pay 2 fire stones (sun shards) for it. The basic setup allows players to change strategy in the middle of the game, so that you can easily get out of streak of bad rolls, or buy a different card after your opponent managed to snatch away all the cards of one type. The advanced setup will make you chose a strategy and you will kind of have to stick with it. By playing a long game you could get the chance to get some crazy fun combos and surprise the other players ;) This game is as addictive as a game can be. The components are top-notch and the insert deserves an award on its own for “best insert ever in the whole universe”. Even after you sleeve your cards, they still fit perfectly into their compartment.

What we're about

Boardgame Monkeys is a meetup group for BOARDGAMERS and ROLEPLAYERS in Brussels.

All of our events are conducted in English. We are open to players of all skill levels, so whether you are an experienced gamer or just interested in finding more about the hobby, come and join us. Please note that this group is for people interested in modern boardgames and generally does not cater to players of traditional games such as Chess, Go etc.

BGM hosts two kinds of events:

- Join and Play!/No Work All Play!: Anybody can come and join a large group of gamers for a game. These sessions take place on the first and third Wednesday of the month. Join the event and indicate in the comments what table you would like to join.

- Afterwork/Weekend Sessions: Individual game tables hosted by our event organisers any day of the week. Just join the event and you are good to go.

Once you are a member of the group, you are free to join either type of event. Please always RSVP before attending. Over time, you might become interested in hosting tables yourself. If that is the case, you might qualify for organizer status after a while.

If you have any questions about how anything in the group works, contact our Membership Manager, Gianluca. If you would like to a host table yourself, after having played a few times with us, please also get in touch with him and he can set up events for you.

Lastly, if you have any complaints or concern, get in touch with the BGM President, Oliver.

You can find many of us on Discord here: https://discord.gg/K37h2zZ

Please note the following rules:

- We have more than 20 Event Organizers who are hosting regular tables to share their passion. Respect their time, energy and explanations. Be on time for your session!

- We bring our personal games with us or borrow one from a games library. If you damage a game or component during a session, please note that you are expected to pay on the spot the store price or Kickstarter price of the full game and take the damaged game home.

- We play at the Outpost Brussels (our main sponsor) and we expect that you will order drink and/or food to support them and us in return. It is only fair as you will play for free with our group.

- No-shows are frowned upon and may lead to your removal from the group if no adequate reason is provided. Especially for Afterwork Sessions, one person not showing up might spoil the game for everybody!

- Late-cancellations (= cancelling less than 24 hours before the event) can also lead to removal from the group if it occurs repeatedly, as it will often be hard to find a replacement at short notice.

-Please don’t block the messaging function on Meetup. Your table hosts may need to get in touch with you.

Happy Gaming!
