Re: International Games Day @ your library 2013

Thanks KonradwithaK! Sorry for the delay in responding - it got very busy both for me personally and at the international level of IGD organising over the last couple of weeks, and I had to let the local IGD volunteering slip for a moment. I will definitely aim to be there on the 28th though! I'll P...

Re: Alternative venue needed

Here's my opinion of where we stand as a gaming group. Thanks Stompy, very useful. (I really appreciate the quick response from crikeythecat too, I should add, since I seem to have randomly forgotten to say so last time.) We have a little while before my submission is finalised, so please everyone ...

Re: Alternative venue needed

- The location looks pretty good (ie. close to the original Dockers home). - The possible price of $0 sounds good. - If there is a requirement to be reliably held, that is definitely not an issue. It is every Thursday except public holidays. My BGG account can vouch for that as well. - If there is ...

I'm cons...

Games are live culture, deserve a place in local festivals

So join us in St Kilda for open gaming next Thursday the 9th of Feb! Open gaming @ St Kilda Festival Thursday 9th February, 5.30 pm onwards Downstairs bar, The L...

Gaming event @ State Library of Victoria

Hi folks, I came along to the Cup Day gaming on Tuesday - nice to meet you! - and left some flyers for an event at the State Library on Saturday 12 November.

More games in libraries - open gaming at SLV, Sat 12 Nov

Hi folks, I'm a library IT guy who's just back from a study trip to the USA (Gen Con, WorldCon, PAX) to study games in libraries. Libraries are getting interested in games, and I'm a proud advocate for games as important both artistically and culturally and therefore deserving better support in our ...
