We first mentioned something about a Birthday promo on Dec 28th last year on our Facebook wall, and have since … ahem, gone quiet. Some of you must have thought we’d chickened out! Tsk tsk.. shame on you. Alrite here’s the deal.
Well, it’s a month late but anyway we are now ready to roll out our new “look” and more importantly a coherent social media infrastructure that links everything together and helps us drive our social media strategy moving forward. We hope you like our new “look”. 😛
Our journey in pictures… I’d started out meaning to write two articles; one is an About Us page and the other is a summary of activities we’d done for last year (meant for the upcoming newsletter). For the activity summary, I was thinking of using photos to visualize […]
The 2nd of our Back-to-Back OTK Meetups – click here for yesterday’s meetup report – and this one’s running over the Year End Countdown. Most people would be out at the pub tonite doing the countdown but four gamers decided to meet and countdown over a game of Fresco and El Capitan as we bade farewell to 2010 and welcomes 2011. Cheers to Boardgaming!
With the New Year coming up, we decided to do a double-date this week – that’s rite folks two OTK Meetups back-to-back. This is the report on the 1st OTK Meetup on Thu evening where we did Alien Frontier (again!) and our first-play of a game that we’ve been having in our library for a long time – Power Struggle!
One thing I love about organizing meetups is the meeting of new friends and the reunion with past friends who sometimes return for a game or two. This Xmas Eve, I received a surprise call from a gamer fren whom I’ve not seen for a year or two. Welcome back to the world of boardgaming. It’s not just old friends we welcomed but old classic games like Samurai, and with OTK’s first play of Alien Frontier & Tego. Merry Christmas to all!
An unexpected call from a regular OTKer Jimmy set us up for this adhoc meetup with the Weiqi gamers. Beside doing a session of Imperial, a game this group is already familiar with, we introduced them to HAVOC, a great poker variant that was very well received. Too bad this game is no longer in print.
OTK Meetup 17/12/10 – Lords of Vegas, Magical Athlete, 7 Wonders, Horse Fever, Leaping Lemmings, Nanuk, Carcassonne, Age of Steam, Confucius
This meetup came right after our Dec New Arrivals, and never before have so many new games hit the OTK tables in one night – Lords of Vegas, Magical Athlete, 7 Wonders, Horse Fever, Leaping Lemmings, and some not-so-new ones like Nanuk, Carcassonne, and Age of Steam – attended by over 18+ gamers; almost a whos-who of the local boardgaming scene. 🙂

A relatively quiet meetup with just one table in play, but it saw a mix of interesting games getting some table-time. Vasco da Gama as a first-play to a few of the gamers, and an old fave Wealth of Nations making a comeback and finally we close-out the night with 18Scan. Not bad for a single table session which lasted 9 hours!
Are you up for some primal bloodletting… bashing in the heads of undeads as the last of the surviving humans dash for the helipads!
This was a mid-week meetup on a Tuesday mainly due to this being a public holiday here in M’sia. There was some buzz lately on 18xx and we decided to make today an “18xx Day” with all newcomers to the 18xx game system welcomed to come and try it out! Did we manage to have some new converts?
