I'll be there for 7am...
I will bring a selection... although no great desire on what I want to play this week. I need to look at my collection to inspire me...

Hi I'm new here. New to board games as well, I've only played Carcassonne, Ticket to Ride and Fluxx. I'd like to join in but I was wondering if it was okay if I'll most likely not know the rules for the majority of the games you play?

Also, are you guys definitely meeting up at the Roundhouse tomorrow? There's a gig there at 8 so it might end up being a bit loud and packed.

I've been going for a couple of months now and every time i've either been taught or have taught a game. I wouldn't worry about not knowing rules.

Also, it's at the redhouse, not the roundhouse from 7ish.

Sorry, I always do this! Every time I mean to say Redhouse, Roundhouse comes out Embarassed 

But, ummm... there's still a gig at the Redhouse tomorrow evening. At least that's what facebook tells me.

Also, that's a relief about you still learning new games, I feel a lot less intimidated now Smile

Yeah, don't worry about that, Polly, I've been twice and I haven't yet played a game I'd played before.

Speaking of which, does anyone have Pandemic?

Awesome, cheers man. Whose wants to play?

And for the kind guys that fit their second game around my leaving early last week, I'll be able to stay till perhaps 10:45 this time. I'll be there from around 7.

Does anyone fancy learning to play shogun? Its an area control/dudes on a map/victory point game with a smidge of resource management, featuring a large cardboard tower that you throw your wooden cubes into to simulate battle.

Let me know if you're interested as i'll have to go grab it from a friends house before this evening and i wont bother if people aren'r fussed.

I'll play Pandemic, never actually played it before. I picked up Forbidden island and Love Letter along with Libertalia if anyone fancies those.

Don't be intimidated Polly, I think you've come to exactly the right place! And I don't think I've played a single game yet where everyone's known the rules, so don't worry about that.

I was playing with Jeff last week, but don't remember anything about a gig :\

Great! I'm looking forward to coming down this evening. And sorry about the confusion with the gig, I just saw the event on facebook so thought I'd mention it. I can't post the link here because I'm new to the forum but it's been posted on the Redhouse facebook page as well. Anyway, I'll check this forum before heading down in case there is a last minute venue change

Ok, spoken to Jeff, yes there is a gig at te redhouse tonight. Therefore, we will be playing at the UNIVERSITY ARMS - 7pm

This is very close to trams/solly street so I will get Jeff to leave a message for any one tht maybe hasn't seen the forum.

Will also send out a general email to catch people... But please spread the word.

Well caught, Polly.

Caolan and I (Laura) will be coming tonight. We've been on a Race for the Galaxy kick this week, so we'll bring that. I'll bring Agricola again if anyone wants to play, but I'm game for anything.

University Arms is just a bit closer to home, goodly! See you there.

Further to my previous message. I have just been to see the function room. We are playing in the Palin room which is upstairs. So get your drinks downstairs and walk on up...

They have suitable tables for our needs...

Hi all.
I'll be coming tonight at 7. I've been once before a while ago but life and Ofsted have conspired against me. I'm the same as polly and will need to learn the rules for the games you're mentioning for tonight. Happy to play anything, pirate, samurai or scientist all seem fun to me.

I've played Shogun once before, I'd be keen to play it again. I seem to remember it being quite long!

Mike - be good to see you again.

To be honest i'm not sure how long shogun will take with less experienced players. We get it in in well under 2 hours but we've played it many, many times. The box says 90-120 minutes but we might go a bit longer than that.

I played it when I joined a London club for a day. It lasted over 3 hours but that did include explaining the rules to 4 who'd never played it before. Regardless, I'm in. Should be there for 7ish.
