Party & Social Games Session @ Cafe Games

Yes, this is a dedicated session for all kinds of party and social games! No euros or strategy games.
More of a social club than a strategy session!

The restaurant lunch menu is available from the bar from 12 to 3 and drinks too! "Eat, drink and be merry!"

If you’re new, I highly recommend you start during this session, so you get to meet a variety of people, in some lighter games, before getting into the long strategic games of the later session.

We’re looking for

Party games, like Dixit, Pictionary, Telestrations, Taboo, Cranium, Reverse Charades, Billionaire, Perpetual Commotion, Articulate, Anomia, Cards Against Humanity etc

• Word games, like Scrabble, Scattergories, Boggle

• Tile games, like Qwirkle, Rummikub, Dominos,

• Card games, like Uno, 500, Bridge, Canasta

• Dexterity games, like Jenga, Crokinole, Bausack and Foosball

• and of course the Psychological/Negotiation games like Werewolf (Mafia), The Resistance, Bohnanza

If you've never played these games before, we're more than happy to show you how. :-)

You’ll notice that after 5pm the latter half of this session overlaps with the “All Games” event. You’re welcome to stay on and continue to play lighter games or even try some more strategic games. ( In case you’re wondering, ruling is, Munchkin is strategy. )

Yes I will be bringing along *some* games, but this sort of event works best when everyone helps out.

GOLD COIN donation appreciated - helps with costs.

Pay: for food, drink as you go. (This is a restaurant, not your mate's garage, so I should not need to spell out that it's inappropriate to bring your own food and drink)

    Hey folks, thank you for a fun day as always.

    When I was picking my games up, I was unable to find my expansions for King of Tokyo. Did anyone else take them home accidentally?

    • Christopher

      Can you confirm that the expansions weren't separate but were inside a King of Tokyo box? I'm pretty sure I saw two copies there so I think someone picked up the wrong one.

      Hi Ben, I've left a message on your homepage with my contact details, I have accidently taken it, my expansions were in the boot of my car but I thought I had taken it in the bag with the base game. I'm so sorry, please call me and I will drop them off to you when you are free.

    Hi everyone :) I am Liliya:) I love Board games, especially about finances and money...Maybe someone seriously interested in playing "Poleconomy"?:)

    Hi! I assume newcomers are welcome? My wife and I are interested. We can bring a few games including a Swedish game similar to Othello (name escapes me right now) and my pride and joy, a custom localised version of Cards Against Humanity.

      It appears these occasions are a lot more eventful than advertised. :P

      For those arachnophobes out there, this was not at Cafe Games. Unless someone brings a copy of NJJ's spider-racing game "Dangle" :-P

    I note that this year's International Tabletop Day is 5th April. As this was the event that drew me to you fine people last year, I'm wondering whether anything is being organised for this year?

    March 17, 2014

    • Christopher

      I've no plans to run anything at this stage. It would be nice but I've a lot on my plate right now.
