What we're about

This meetup is for people who want to play board games in English in Toulouse. The intent is both to have fun and to provide an occasion to practice English. Native speakers are also welcome, of course.

If you previously thought you would attend a session but changed your mind, it's okay, but please change your status on the session's invitation list accordingly as soon as possible: spots are limited and you might be needlessly preventing others from attending. You will be considered as a no-show if you cancel less than three hours before the start of the Meetup. 

Players are not expected to be familiar with the game being played. The rules are explained at the start of the session. I try to provide handouts with a summary of the rules, but there isn't one for each game, yet.

Due to the nature of the games we play, being able to hold a conversation in English is a de facto requirement (level B2 and above). Furthermore, this is not a language exchange group: the sessions are in English only, for full immersion.
We usually play on Sundays.
The sessions take place at Blastodice.

The complete collection of games I own can be consulted on Board Game Geek. Feel free to indicate what games you'd like to play in a future session.

[Long Session] Eclipse: Second Dawn for the Galaxy

Needs a location

In this session, we'll play a game of Eclipse (https://boardgamegeek.com/image/5235277/eclipse-second-dawn-galaxy).

Beware: this session is expected to last longer than usual.

Game complexity: Advanced. Heavy strategy game.

As usual, all the rules will be explained at the start of the session. We welcome new players (but this particular session is not a good choice if you aren't used to playing board games). Any actions performed by mistake can simply be reverted, unless it led to something being revealed by another player.

Quick summary of our Meetup group's description, just in case:
