An intersection of events reminded me of a gaming buddy who first taught me VINHOS years back. My first foray into the world of Lacerda.
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.
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….
Find out how the first M’sian session of AGE OF INDUSTRY went at OTK Cheras last night! Did we enjoy it? Is it as good as BRASS? Can I still buy this game?
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!
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…
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.
BGC Meetup 29/1/10 Part 2 @ OTK Cheras – Powergrid Korea, Small World, Chicago Express, Bang!, Factory Manager
The full sessrep for last Fri’s session where we did Small World, Chicago Express, Bang!, Powergrid Korea (covered in an earlier sessrep posted a few days ago) and Factory Manager.
Looks like it’s Friedemann Friese’s nite as we did two of his games… Powergrid and Factory Manager. The Korean map of Powergrid pose the interesting question of whether you buy resources from the North or South Korean market…. Read ayheng’s report of his winning session and pick up one or two Powergrid strategies from him. Also, find out what is “Powergrid Director’s Cut”. Enjoy!
