Tuesday 16th December - XMAS PARTY TIME (Poll Multiple Choice)

Post  Aneurin on Mon 10 Nov 2014, 10:40

You voted in your 10s... Tuesday 16th of December (7pm-late; as per usual)  is the date for the Sheffield Board Games Club Christmas Party at the Redhouse. There will a £1 entry fee per person - to go towards prize funds. Remember - this is an event for members and family/spouse... everyone welcome so long as they bring a dish.

If everyone can bring a dish or 2 to form a massive buffet for the group that would be great - please list the food you are bringing below (see we don't end up with a room full of crisps). Last year we had food inspired by games - a Catan Pizza was the highlight; this year there will be a prize for the best game inspired dish.

Then we eat and play some party style games and give out some more prizes.  Please make your choice(s) of games above - we will run a little knockout league if numbers allow. Prizes (in the form of games/Patriot games vouchers) will be awarded to the overall winner and the runner up.

Food so far:

MikeD - Deli meats, Cheese & Biscuits
Evan - Carrot sticks, Celery, Humus
Lizzie - Bread sticks & dips
Aneurin - Indian snacks, Xmas crackers - maybe pizza (cold)
Sam - Crisps
DaveB - Sausage Rolls
TomW - Sandwiches

Kes - Mystery Dessert
Steveygee - Mince Pies
Paul - Something sweet?
Tom - Cake of some-sort!
Martin - XmaS bAKING (MAybe buscuits)

I'll bring a selection of deli meats and cheeses and crackers. Evan, if you want me to get you your houmous I can get it for 19p!!!

I've gone for mix of games as I can't decide!
I'd suggest 7 wonders too as it always takes the same amount of time and plenty of people have played it.

How would a final play out if everyone plays different games?

I'll bring some sausage rolls I guess Smile

As for the mix/match games idea - I'm also curious how a final would play out as well...

Pretty simple really... All the shorter games above are available to sign up to on the night... The winner/runner up (depending in numbers) of each game played can go into a final/semi. We can draw the game To be played out of a hat or play an unplayed game. Thinking 4 player rampage final would work really well.

Well, I still it think it would be better to have one game everyone plays. That is practically a regular session.

But slightly more organised and shorter style games...

Besides everyone likes Tuesday nights Wink

I was going to say the other day that part of what made Pitchcar such a laugh was that it engaged an audience (because it's simple and visual and unpredictable and big and fast), and everyone oohed and aahed at every lucky flick and yelled and laughed whenever someone's disc rocketed off the board, bounced off the bar, hit the cat, landed back on the board in first place but had to go back to where they were because they skipped more than one section of track that's what it says in the rules guys stop complaining.

I don't think any game in that lost would work the same way.... Pitchcar is beautiful in its simplicity... Flick - next player...

FWIW every time I've played La Boca it attracts a lot of spectator attention, mainly in the form of lots of people chewing their hands to stop themselves helping out the current players Wink

I've tweaked the Poll so you can vote for more than one entry. If everyone picks every game they would be ok with, we should get the best option for everyone. If you have already vote, cancel your vote and start over to choose more than one. So if you would be happy with one thing but would prefer something that no one has voted for, you can choose both and not feel you have wasted your vote.
Should hopefully make things slightly easier

In that case we should remove the option for all games and just let everyone select - if they want all they tick all? We could add 7 Wonders then?

Hoping to come but there's a possibility that I might have to go to London for the day... so not committing to any food at the moment but will see where the gaps are nearer the time if I can make it!
