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 Meetup 3/12/10 – Civilization, Nanuk, Homesteaders, Dixit, FITS, Roll thru the Ages, 1960 The Making of the President
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!!
The first prompt was made months back when Hiew (of the popular Hiew’s Boardgame Blog) asked if I’m interested to answer some questions he has regarding the online boardgaming business, the local market and about organizing boardgame meetups. Sure, why not? 😛
What’s Fox, Pretty Celebrity, Boardgames, and Hope have in common? They all appeared in last Sunday’s charity run in aid of cancer research, the famous TERRY FOX RUN! Were you not there? Aiyoh…
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!

A Diwali gaming evening than ended earlier than our usual Fri nite OTK meetup (ie before 12 midnite!) Yet we still got to play Agricola, Kuhhandel (You’re Bluffing), Railways of England & Wales, and Puerto Rico. Not bad for a short night.
Hiew’s back with his Hansa Teutonica while we also did some lighter games like Zooloretto, Citadels (making a long comeback) and The End of the Triumvirate. Find out how which games you can use to accommodate a playing group as large as 7 players and then as small as 3 players. Also find out why OLD is the new NEW. 🙂
First meetup in October saw Agricola being used as a gateway game (ahem), while Vasco da Gama made his 2nd appearance in OTK and the evening (or rather morning) ended with Dungeon Lords kicking adventurers ass till 4+ am….
Our Pre-Raya gaming saw Han bringing an OOP Wallace-game Way Out West to the OTK table. We continued with the light & fun Nuns on the Run before concluding an early gaming evening with Knizia’s Tetris-inspired F.I.T.S.
A last minute MERDEKA Meetup call managed to get about 15 gamers convering on SS15 again but this time at Old Taste Cafe with the main objective in getting some newcomers into the 18xx game system. Beside 18TN, a rare but very good game The Scepter of Zavandor and the popular Small World were also played.
A great Friday which saw OTK back to its 7am best! With more than 10 gamers, we saw some of the hottest games in play – Automobile (courtesy of Hiew), Innovation (thnks to Kareem), and a 5p Cyclades. Today was also the graduation of four more OTK-trained Dungeon Masters as 2 gents and 2 ladies are now new Dungeon Lords… and finally we close the evening with a game of Caylus that ended our meetup at 7 am.
