Our friend Dani can't make it anymore (just updating you on head count). How many of us then?

Also, I'm up for Scythe too.

There seems to be quite a few from Meet Up, however there are always quite a few from Meet Up...
If we play Scythe 'shotgun' i'm Death from Bill and Ted. Leaves Poldark up for grabs.

Ha haaa, brilliant. You've literally taken the best ones though... I'm pretty sure the bad guy from Wander Over Yonder has one, so that'll be me.

Hey everybody,

I'll be bringing Roll for the Galaxy along again. I'll then switch focus to a different game for a few weeks. Then another, etc.

I have a much friendlier introduction to the game:

Rahdo is great for getting a feel for games and most of the rules. He often gets the minor rules details wrong! (He corrects them in the description). But definitely good enough to sit and play.

Cheers
Brad

Who's around this week?

To state the obvious:
You don't HAVE to play th 'in focus' game. There will be loads of choice! Easy to pick up and play stuff too. The 'focus' game might not even make the table, depending on what people want to play. I just thought it would be a good idea to see the same game appear amongst it all for a few weeks at a time. Give everybody a chance to play it and re-play it if they want.

I'll be around tonight, might be a tad late though. I've scored a copy of Captain Sonar which I'll bring along if I'm early enough for the lighter game side of the evening.

Well played! I missed out on a copy of that - while trying to buy it!!

Orcs Nest have half a dozen copies - if you give them a call they'd likely hold one over for you. I had a play around with it earlier and I'm pretty excited about it i must admit!

Looking like five of us this eve... Maybe not enough for Captain Sonar. Might be perfect for Scythe though, if you're up for the gargantuan task of teaching it..?!! It is a bit of a monster.

Won't be able to make it tonight. Final shoot for me in Brighton and then 'funemployed'...

Ah shucks. Apparently it plays well with 6 so I'll bring it along in the off chance someone else turns up.

I'll bring Scythe. Like most worker placement games, it's just a matter of working through a few rounds having no idea what you are doing and gradually grokking it. I've only soloed it so far, but should be able to explain it all the same. See you about 8.30.

Do. Sometimes people do just show up without saying anything. Love to try it!

I'm in.

I'll bring Scythe again which we can hopefully get to the table. I heartily recommend a watch of this for anyone who hasn't played before.

splendid. We should be seven.

On another note: Is it wrong to call dibs on Inis for when it comes out...?! 😀

Hey All,

My In Focus game for the next few weeks will be Quantum. Teachable on th night. No need to watch any videos.

As always, it may or may not make the table - there will be plenty of choice.


Cheers

Hi Brad,

This sounds like fun. Can I just turn up on the night? (Do you have room for new people?)

Best wishes,
Duncan

Hey Duncan,

It is good fun! Do come along. All we ask is that you please sign in on here on the weeks you're coming - a head count hugely affects which games people bring.


Cheers
Brad

Hi Brad,

Ok, I'll be there on Thursday. Looking forward to it! (Although my board-game experience doesn't go much beyond the Xmas staples.)

Duncan

Splendid. See you Thurs. Don't worry, there will be plenty of gateway/quick-to-grasp games to play. Once we've got you hooked we'll then peddle you the harder stuff!

"Five" from MeetUp so far.

I'll be there. I really want someone to end my current winning streak as I can't handle the pressure at these heady heights...
