Wednesday Gaming in The Skylark

  • 5 days ago · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Feel free to arrive early (someone is usually there by 6pm) and hang out playing some quick & light games or having a chat while everyone arrives.

Main games will start 7pm. Please arrive promptly (try to get there before 7) to ensure a space in a long game. If you want to pre-organise a game and start earlier, feel free.

Please make sure you wrap up your games by 10:45 and are out by 11pm so that the bar staff can close up in time. You can move to the downstairs bar area until midnight.

Please don't bring your own food or drinks to this venue.

Important, this is required to maintain good relations with our venues! Please make sure you RSVP to attend this event, and cancel your RSVP as soon as you can if you can't make it on the day.

If you see low attendee numbers and want to come along but RSVPs have closed - just make a comment on the meetup so we can keep track of numbers.

      Except Jon. You should always shoot him as your first move.

    Anybody keen for Power Grid, Fast Food Chain Magnate, Dominant Species, Eclipse or Terra Mystica? There's 2 of us already and we wouldn't like to drag all of it with us :)

      Yes it was a good game indeed! Next time should be much faster with no rule explanation time... So ok for next week? :p

    So, some of us talk occasionally about how nice it would be to 'learn' a game with others a few times, not have to run through the rules, etc. The problem, of course, is that life happens and it's difficult to commit to any regular schedule.

    I have two games that might make this work;

    1) Cry Havoc- https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/192457/cry-havoc . Fighty game, 4 players ideal, but the game has an AI for one of the races (The native Trogs), so if one of 4 people can't make it one week, it wouldn't stop the game happening.

    2) Vast - https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/170416/vast-crystal-caverns

    Dungeon explorer with completely and utterly different rulesets for each of the roles - Knight, Thief, Dragon, Goblins, and Cave itself. Again, if one person can't make it, the game adapts well to different numbers.

    So - anyone interested in trying to play a regular game in the runup to Xmas - ie able to commit to 'probably' for next 4 weeks or so?

      Yup. I'm in. Southern rail doing their best to prevent me getting there on time but should make 1900

      Thanks for the game gents. Definitely interested in getting Cry Havoc to the table again, eager to explore the other factions and see if we can get some more advanced tactics in play.

    I've got Escape From The Aliens In Outer Space in my bag that I'm yet to get to the table if anyone fancies a game. Box says 20-45minutes so I'm guessing it's more a filler but I figured I'd throw it out there in case anyone is interested.
