    General chatter - discuss anything here

    No worries. I found the boardgames shop and then just had a drink by the hotel, relaxed like.

    Boardgaming meet up

    Now obviously this didn't happen last year, but my wife's out the country in a few weeks and I've got the house to myself, and so I'm happy to host a boardgaming meetup here in York, between the 25th and 29th July (not all that time though- that'd be crazy!). I've room for people to sleep over and if loads of people want to come then there's even a pub over the road where we can play if we need extra tables etc.

    Legion - X-Men TV spin-off

    Loved season 1, gave up after episode 3 on season 2. It devolved into a series of weird things happening, or maybe happening, interspersed with John Hamm being patronising (and wrong). No cohesion or drive. Read a spoiler on the final episode and glad I stopped tbh

    I’m in Birmingham on the 12th July for work, but I’ve got to stay overnight. I don’t suppose some of our Birmingham based boardgamers would want a mini gaming meet then?

    What are you playing?

    Yeah, it’s a nice little abstract, but find the hype surrounding it unfathomable. Would play it again though.

    Wibbell++ a lot. I bought it because it sounded interesting and was a cheap thing I could think of before the Expo, but I really like playing with it. Some fabulous scope here.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    Fair enough

    Whoop whoop! Listened to it, really complementary, the game was called very clever. Also emphasised that everyone there, even Quinn, but less so Matt, had a lot of fun!

    Oh man! You totally should have, I told Matt I used to run this place and he remembered it fondly, so it wouldn’t even have been that weird. I wasn’t bored, if there was no one to chat to I’d eat my picnic or look through the SU&SD free stuff. I had metaphorical itchy feet during the first day though, I missed all the bargains, but I’d do it again in a moment. Also it was looking lovely having a base with a chair and no pressure.

    I actually played some games at stands today! House of Danger in Z-Man (fighting fantasy book but the chapters are on cards and you track things with tokens rather than write stuff down. Could be good, very price dependant on whether to get it or now) Echidna Shuffle- move the monotremes around the board, really simple pick up and deliver game, but with big chunky echidnas and really fun. Penguin Castle Mummy Game (not actual title) a hidden movement game where it's not actually hidden for one player because of magnets fun. Again another enjoyable family game Also I can't believe I stood next to Moose and didn't say anything, I'm terrible at recognising people. Also you guys totally should have come up and chatted to me on the SUASD stand. Next time it'll be mandatory.

    What. A. Day. Spent the evening with the SUASD folk listening to slightly inebriated Martin Wallace anecdotes. Then played Newspeak with them and Heavy Cardboard and they loved it!

    It’s quiet time on the SUASD stand, so I’m picnicking whilst rifling through a media kit

    No problem, just need to make sure I get a slot. Should have a volunteer pass this year, so can be there outside usual hours. Are you in the UKGamesExpo discord chat? Just mentioned it there and loads of people want to see what it is.
