New group (The Gamer's Game Group)

Post by prd1982 » Fri Sep 25, 2015 10:12 pm

Paul Shone and I have decided to start a new boardgame meetup group.

This group will meet at GamesLab in the CBD (Address: 328 Little Lonsdale St).
We will meet fortnightly on Wednesdays, starting Sept 30 (next week).*
We will meet from about 6pm until 10pm-ish. Sometimes we'll meet upstairs, other time we might meet in the basement pub.

This group will be aimed at playing so-called gamer's games. What kind of games do we have in mind? For example: Through the Ages, High Frontier, Cthulhu's Wars, Struggle of Empires, Dominant Species, Clash of Cultures, Indonesia, Eclipse, Mage Knight, Archipelago, Power Grid, Carson City, Euphoria, etc. In other words, we will typically play longer and more complex boardgames. And, consequently, short "filler" games (like Bohnanza, For Sale, Codenames) and "gateway" games (like Settlers of Catan, Carcassone, 7 Wonders) will not likely be played.

All are welcome! Of course, we're more than happy to teach games to new players and to learn new games that others bring along. Let either of us know if you have any questions.
