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.
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. 🙂

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.

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?
18xx made a long-awaited comeback to the OTK tables with 18SCAN in play. Before that, the gamers warmed-up with Roll thru the Ages and LOTR Confrontation.
OTK was a BANG last nite!! We took all 3 main tables facing their front door!! Three sessions were gaming concurrently… with OTK’s first CIVILIZATION game in session (TQ Ho for bringing his CIV to OTK). 1841 was also brought to tempt Ho to stay. Let’s see what else was in play? Nanuk, Homesteaders, Dixit, Roll thru Ages ……& 1960; Homesteaders being played 3 times!! We finally call it a nite at 7:30am this morning!!
A night of confrontation saw Space Hulk: Death Angel and Wallenstein in play. Over at another table, we’ve lighter – but no less fun – games in Pickomino and Niagara!
