No Theme night means we get to play whatever we fancy… so after weeks of harvesting, we finally got VIVAJAVA THE COFFEE GAME back to the table even if it’s just with 7. AMONG THE STARS (hinting at an ARTIPIA Theme Nite soon), TZOLKIN, SUBURBIA and ASARA were played. SPACE CADETS made a brief appearance but….
As I write this, one monster kickstarter has ended (CTHULHU WARS) while another (18OE) is just 64 hours to go before closing. None of them are going to topped this April’s massive 2.2 million secured by ZOMBICIDE 2 yet both of these are much larger either in game components / expansions and gameplay. Read on to find out BGC’s journey with Kickstarter games since 2010.
One of our quieter nights where OTK regulars meet and drink to our boardgaming friendship ala VITICULTURE! KAHUNA and RIVER DRAGONS were also in session.
OTK Meetup 28/6/2013 – River Dragons, King of Tokyo, Ricochet Robots, Pandemic, Tzolkin, Tiki Topple, Settlers of Catan, Last Night on Earth, Roll Through the Ages, RA, Top Secret Spies, Ninjato
No theme, just free-n-easy and more than 10 different games hit the tables from the oldies like SETTLERS OF CATAN to Knizia’s RA, the chaotic TOP SECRET SPIES, and some newer games like TZOLKIN and RIVER DRAGONS. Hmm.. Maybe we should let things go more free-n-easy in future.

Twilight Struggle Digital Since we like to encourage more board face-to-face interactions, we normally do not highlight or write much about digital version of boardgames (be it iPad or online).

OTK Meetup 14/6/2013 – Pack & Stack, Cowabunga, Libertalia, Cash n Guns, Fusion, Pigz Up, Kingdom Builder
Following two hectic Fridays of Mori & Feld, we decided on a change of pace as we went thru a nite of lighter (but no less fun) gaming tonight with Pack & Stack, Cowabunga, Fusion, Pigz Up, Cash n Guns, Libertalia and Kingdom Builder. Well, Kingdom Builder’s not exactly light-n-easy but that’s OTK for you! 🙂

We also did COPYCAT for the 3rd week in a row… no sessrep on COPYCAT in this report but I promise you we’ll write about it in the next sessrep.
