Play board games in Leamington tonight

Advent may be progressing afrenzy, but we're still playing games in the Newbold Comyn Arms tonight.


Someone will be bringing a newcomer-friendly game. Someone will be bringing some old favourites.

Bring 50p for the games buying fund, unless you're new - first hit's free.

Board Silly Tomorrow

We had some doubts at the start of December, how close to Christmas we'd be able to keep playing games at the Newbold Comyn Arms.

Gary tells me that it was discussed last week, and at the very least, he and Ray will be around to play games tomorrow night. I'll be there too, and the pub will be open.

That's a quorum then. Come and join us, if your Christmas preparations allow.

We should be prepared for the possibility that it'll be quiet and they'll want to close early; although by the same token people might be celebrating in there.

Gaming 8th December

The approach of Christmas combined with a failure to post reminders on the blog, boards and pages meant that only 8 people turned up.  Still good enough for 2 healthy gaming tables and 4 games total:
  • Blood Bowl: Team Manager - The Card Game - I didn't play, and have never played a blood bowl game so I'll leave any write up to others.
  • Transeuropa - Fantastic quick and easy train themed game.
  • Galaxy Trucker - I like this, there was some murmurings of it being too random. I think it all depends on who you are playing against, and if someone decides that they're going to build as quickly as they can and put everyone else straight on the timer :)
  • 7 Wonders (+ Leaders) - Probably the best game you can play in under an hour?
There should be players next Thursday too, although I'll probably not make it with a Christmas lunch earlier in the day, and some broken toes preventing me walking!

Last night's gaming

Last night saw another healthy three tables' worth of players.
  • Eminent Domain - Seems to involve space colonisation
  • Jacob Marley, Esq. - Best £4.95 I ever spent on a board game based on financial markets 
  • Notre Dame - "It plays a billionty times better than I thought it would do" - Gary
The pub tells us there will nothing to impede us next Thursday.

Play board games in Leamington tonight

8pm at the Newbold Comyn Arms.

I'll be there. Gary'll be there. We'll bring some games.

If it's anything like last week, there'll be many more.

As always, there'll be something newcomer-friendly in the games bag(s) and first-timers don't pay the 50p contribution to the club games-buying fund.
