  1. I posted in the Newcastle meet thread but thought I should put this here as well: So, many years ago I held a couple of boardgame/videogame meets at my house. A good number of people came, many games were played and fun was had. My boardgame collection has increased stupidly since then and I was wondering if there would be interest in another game day sometime in the early part of next year? I'm currently in a fairly big place with lots of room but that is likely to change in the springtime next year. Would anyone be interested in a day of boardgaming on a weekend early next year? Or possibly a weekend of gaming, depending on numbers and interest.
  2. We've played quite a bit of Everdell since last Christmas, got the Pearlbrook expansion earlier this year and then got on the new kickstarter for the next two expansions and the wooden tree. It's a favourite of my partner, possibly because she always wins but also because it's very pretty, worker placement, engine and tableau building which ticks lots of our boxes. We just got some little bowls made for it after seeing a guy selling 3d printed game trays on Facebook. I messaged him about printing us something specific for Everdell and he was great and made us the size and colour that we wanted. His main product is some nifty stacking trays for game components but he was so good in printing us a special request that I thought I'd post his details here. I've also posted a pic of the bowls set up on the board. One of his stacking trays is to the right with the coins in. https://www.slithytovedesign.co.uk/
  3. Wasn't Nanty Narkin the Discworld remake? I can't imagine that would work for your normal solo gaming. I look forward to your write ups, they're always interesting.
  4. That was around 1994 at Epcot I think. They demoed it in a tech section and a small number of visitors in each group could try it. I didn't get the chance to try it but my wife did, I was very jealous. It was definitely a magic carpet ride experience and I know I'd seen it in Edge before we went.
  5. Would the donkey konga bongos work on the switch if connected by the smash bros cube controller adapter?
  6. What's the Alice in Wonderland card game in those images from Tabletop?
  7. Is that the map from Ant attack on the speccy? It looks familiar.
  8. I've got some games I'd ideally like to swap rather than sell but will see what happens. Have a look, let me know if anything appeals and what you might be willing to swap. Willing to consider swapping a number of my games for a single larger game or whatever works. Up for swaps are: Bargain Quest + The Black Market Expansion + Solo Mode + Small expansions (8 bit Theatre, Chaotic Goods, Acquisitions Incorporated, Table Titans + Golem Promo) https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/223740/bargain-quest Cutthroat Caverns Collection: Includes Base Game + Deeper & Darker Exp. (in main box) + Relics & Ruins Exp. + Tombs & Tomes Exp. + Adventure Book B1/B2 + Death Incarnate Exp. https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/28259/cutthroat-caverns Forbidden Desert https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/136063/forbidden-desert Panamax https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/131287/panamax Pandemic: The Cure https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/150658/pandemic-cure 1066: Tears to many Mothers https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/155122/1066-tears-many-mothers The Grizzled + At Your Orders Exp. https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/171668/grizzled Istanbul: The Dice Game https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/235488/istanbul-dice-game The Lost Expedition + The Fountain of Youth Exp. https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/216459/lost-expedition Santorini https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/194655/santorini Oceanos https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/192860/oceanos Sapiens https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/169649/sapiens Tragedy Looper https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/148319/tragedy-looper
  9. 3 player Forks game this afternoon. My daughter scored 0, I scored 2 (yay, positive points) and my partner scored 12! Obviously broken, it's getting buried in the garden along with all the other games I lose. It's like a shallow grave of cardboard out there. It's quick and easy to teach actually but I can't work out a strategy yet. I'll keep trying.
  10. I'll look out for it when it releases. Make sure you keep us updated.
  11. I've had some dividers from these guys before. Here's the link to their Arkham Horror set. https://www.bgextras.co.uk/compact-card-game-organizer-from-the-broken-token-i2036.htm
  12. The GMT website says VAT friendly shipping which I'm assuming means we pay a little extra but pay the tax so the parcel didn't get held up and we don't get hit with handling charges. I also went and ordered on the p500 which is entirely your fault.
  13. Bargain Quest fits in the two boxes ok once the insert from the main box has been removed. The extra board fits in the expansion box.
  14. Raiders of the North Sea is now available on ios, android, steam and switch. Its a very good adaption of the board game and offers cross platform multiplayer and a decent challenge from the AI in single. Sadly it didn't get have a pass and play option for multiplay on the same device.
  15. I've had a busy day today. My preorder of Foothills arrived which I've been looking forward to since I missed the chance to buy it at UKGE. Then my kickstarter of Bargain Quest arrived unexpectedly. Too much happiness as both just in time for the weekend.
