Games Night

  • Aug 5, 2014 · 7:30 PM
  • The Orange Tree

Welcome to Games Night! Why not spend an evening in good company having a chat and a drink whilst playing some board games? This event differs from our regular games day as we often have a 'featured game' that we will play, along with any other games people feel like bringing along.

If your interested in board games, why not check out

    I had a fab time, great fun. Special thanks to John /Clichegoth for his great hosting skills, I feel guilty that you're not actually playing some of the games. I don't mind being the games master some time if you want a break - as long as I know how to play the game ;-)

      Thanks, the story was driven by you guys and that made it fun and easy. :) The credit gives to James for the organisation, I merely choose which games to bring along andturn up with enthusiasm!

    Hey everyone thanks for a BRILLIANT night. Here's a shameless plug... if you enjoyed playing any of the games last night I'd appreciate a like for my Facebook page.
    You can of course like it and then hide all posts from it if you like and there is of course absolutely no pressure at all to do so... you can just enjoy the games for the sake of playing!

    btw Original activity game - charades type game. But I couldn't find any hard-original. There is iPhone app.
    I think - careful picked phrases by three different difficulties in three categories - pantomime/drawing/word describing, makes this game proper fun. At least for me :p

    So anyone likes charades? :p

    So disappointed I can't be there now as my taxi services are needed by my son....

    August 5, 2014

    • John M.

      I just spotted you've moved on to the not attending list. That's a shame. However, I know the power of the needy son. Not from having one, but from certainly being one many times. I'm sure he'll appreciate your sacrifice. Hopefully you can make it to the next one, you could bring your son along to minimise the risk!

      Lol, roll on him passing his test. Joined here to have a social life outside of my son and don't know who would be more embarrased him or me if he came!! Love him really...

    Sorry to disappoint but something has come up and I won't be able to make it. Was looking forward to getting back in to the boardgame scene. Look forward to the next one.

    August 5, 2014

    • James

      That's a shame, haven't seen you in ages! Hopefully see you at the next one

  • Roy

    OK, New guy here - is there somebody I should introduce myself to or wander up to? A newbie table/zone or something?

    August 5, 2014

    • John M.

      I'm afraid I don't actually own a copy of Monopoly. A lot of hardcore 'gamers' don't like it because it's too luck dependant. However, I'm one of the few who will defend it and agree it can be addictive! If you have a copy of this or any other game you'd like to play, feel free to bring it along.

      August 5, 2014

    • Roy

      OK. Escape from Colditz was favourite in my youth. The other ones I have are old and complicated. Can't even remember how to play them. Avalon Hill stuff like Squad Leader and Panzer Blitz which are as hard core as they got at one time.

      August 5, 2014

  • John M.

    Excellent! We've achieved the meaning of life with 42 people signed up so far. That's a lot of people who like games, being sociable, having a drink or all three.
    I'm really looking forward to tonight!

      Might need to book the entire pub in future! or bring our own chairs.

    Hey guys new to the group tonight. Not going to be able to make games night but will definitely try for the next event

    July 29, 2014

    • John M.

      Hi, it's great to hear from another potential social gamer. :) I do recommend these nights as everyone is very friendly and there's always a fantastic atmosphere. Hopefully we'll see you at the next one.

      July 30, 2014

  • John M.

    Wow, it looks like games night is going to be another popular session. Does anyone have any games requests?
    As always you can find my list of games here:
    http://boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/Clichegoth and I am often able to borrow many others.
