Hidden role games this Thursday!

Post  Jamie on Wed 12 Aug 2015, 13:58

I mentioned this last night, seemed to be a bit of interest in this, so...

For anyone who likes hidden role games (avalon, resistance, onuw, coup, etc) some of us are meeting up on Thursday to play, will be at the Dev Cat from 7:30. If there's enough interest, hope to make it a regular thing, we may try other venues too...

A few people recommended the Queens head, by the bus station; think they have a board games event there on Weds already, so they're a board game friendly place. Also, played avalon before in Dev Cat, it's a nice play, only issue maybe that it's open plan, but will see how we get on...

Who's coming?

I think we'll have at least 6 or 7 Dave. Well. Minimum of 5 I should expect. I'll see if I can interest some other friends too.

I do like a hidden role game or two and I will be able to make it some weeks but I don't think I'll be able to make it every week like I can with the Tuesday sessions. I won't be there tonight.

A Hidden Roles game evening - it's been ages since I've played (I typically end up leaving just as Avalon/ONUW/whatever is getting started)

I like your new Avatar, Dave! Are you taunting me after last night?

Good games. I'll say that if the pre-ONUW séance looks weird in the Redhouse we must certainly look like a bunch of dopes in the bustling Dev Cat, but we nonetheless found out that it works really well with only four people. Easier to work things out, which makes everyone cagier, but easier to lie cleverly if you have the confidence and good logic.

Avalon is also a very different game with less people. I feel like because more missions require perfect teams and also perfect voting, everyone is involved and you have to persuade and convince everyone. Merlin and Percy really need to get their act together especially. No-one can escape scrutiny!

I'm surprised everyone thought I was Merlin in the first game, but Andy did a great job playing it quiet. I didn't have anywhere near the self-control when it was me in the second game. Nice to play as the goodies though!

Thanks Sam.

Yeah, 5 player Avalon is a lot more intense, nowhere to hide, there's a lot more acting involved. I think at that player count, the good guys have more chance of working out the perfect team (or at least 1 or 2 good guys will work out the good team), so maybe it's more to do with working out who Merlin his (if you're evil) and trying to provide cover for him (if you're good).

There's a load of variants with the new resistance expansions that we need to try out; be interesting to see how they work with 5 players. Hopefully we'll have more than 5 players next time though...

On the topic of next time; I've been wondering how frequently we should do this, what do you guys think?

For me, maybe twice a month would be good. If people want to play more frequently, we should do; but I just have a lot on my plate right now, so may not make every week. Also, want to keep playing Avalon at the end of regular Tuesday evenings...

Also, I don't mind the Dev Cat; but did think it was a bit too busy and too noisy; so think we should try a few venues before settling on a 'home'. I'm thinking we should try the Old Queens Head (near the bus station / pond street) next; any thoughts on that, any other suggestions?

Yeah was a fun evening!

Totally agree that Avalon gets much more intense / serious with only 5 players - but enjoyed that a lot.

Yes Sam Assassinating you was a highlight of the evening Very Happy

I agree that Dev Cat was a bit too noisy and am happy to try elsewhere.

Twice a month works for me but honestly i could play most weeks so it's whatever people want.... I cant' realistically make it out before 9 o clock though atm

The Dev cat being open till midnight is pretty good though - where ever else we go we should aim for somewhere  that opens later than 11 imo

I'm always keen to play hidden role games, obviously, and would enjoy some coup/ONUW to vary things a bit.

Whenever we can get 5/6 ppl then it's worth organising....

Yeah, I don't mind the Dev Cat. On the regular Tuesday thing I go to there, it's a lot quieter than it was on Thursday (which was too loud for my tastes). I'm thinking we should try The Old Queens Head next. If anyone else has any suggestions, think we should try those too.

Sam, how did you find Henry's? I think you do a card games night there, a few months back. What did you think to it?

I we can get 7, that would be ace.

Hi Pete,

It's a bit ad-hoc just yet, but I'm thinking Thursdays...

Is Thursdays a good night for most people?
