After PJ (Section 17 Pitstop Cafe), the Boardgamecafe.net team made another first-time stop at Cassian Kitchen to do our first Subang Jaya meetup! It’s still early days but read about our riotous sessions of Red Dragon’s Inn, the wacky journey to Mars in Mission Red Planet, and Gareth’s lust for Caylus Premium Edition…. see you here next month!
Finally Boardgamecafe.net is doing meetups in Petaling Jaya!! Here’s the session report of our 1st PJ meetup held yesterday at Pitstop Cafe in Section 17. Join us when we meet here again next month!
Read about the first play of Homesteader @ OTK and why IMF will be involved in our upcoming sessions (LOL). Also in-play this week were Dice Town and Long Shot.
Finally, the sessrep on our 1st play of DUNE last week at OTK Cheras. Did it live up to its hype? Read on and find out what we all think of this (sadly) OOP game of treachery and betrayal… all for SPICE!
(left: Nelson, right: Blownfreaks) This day saw the return of Nelson back to OTK, unfortunately into the jaws of Age of Steam sharks. (pic: Afif) Afif, the other AOS newbie learning the ropes. (left: me, middle:kaz) I did what I normally do and secure the locomotive action early […]

SIX souls have been chosen from the OTK group of gamers and will re-enact the battle for control of Arrakis and it’s invaluable spice melange. The SIX will take on one of these roles; each with his/her/it’s own agenda – Atreides, Harkonnen, Shaddam, the Guild, Fremen and Bene Gesserit. Who shall prevail in this classic yet out-of-print game from Avalon-Hill? Stay tune as we announced the date/time soon…
A not-so-frequent session with the Pudu gamers after our usual CNY dinner get-together. We did Aladdin’s Dragons (which they liked) and Battlestar Galactica (which the Humans won due to divine intervention *tsk tsk*)
The overdue report of the session before-and-after Chinese New Year where we intro-ed Agricola to two newbies (using the K-deck no less) and Aladdin’s Dragons get another session, this time with the full might of the Magic Spells!
Dungeon Lords was played for the first time in M’sia. Find out what we think of it. Plus more moor farming in Agri-land till the wee hours of Sat morning.
