As we look to transition from Old Town Kopitiam to new OTK, another Friday evening was well spent with the first play of ERUPTION (lava flow anyone?) and IMPERIAL being the main course. Innovation, Nightfall, 7 Wonders with Leaders, Kaigan were also seen on the tables.
An evening where the BGC Retreat participants gathered for a post-retreat meetup with NAVEGADOR seeing play as our FIRST PLAY promo game, and it’s forefather ANTIKE also introduced to another group. Return of some old favorite gateway games like TICKET TO RIDE and HAVOC plus CARSON CITY and LEAPING LEMMINGS rounded up the evening.

OTK Meetup 4/3/11 – Power Grid Germany, Hansa Teutonica, Bang!, K2, Ascension, Glen More, Long Shot, Caylus, Le Havre, Vinhos
With the Power Grid Tournament a week away, you can bet to see Power Grid in play with Hansa Teutonica also make a reappearance. We have two tables for R2 with Le Havre & Vinhos, an economic game about the Portuguese wine trading business. OTK also has the distinction of hosting three gamers from Europe for our R2; a Spanish, an Italian and a Hungarian!
One OTK Meetup where jack208’s not in town saw some light games on the tables, including Hey, That’s My Fish! 10 Days in Asia and Samurai.
The first POWER GRID Tournament in M’sia starts next Sunday (Mar13) with the first leg being kicked off at Boardgame Depot, Lucky Garden Bangsar and will continue over the next few weeks at Cassian Kitchen, Family Boardgame Station, Wolf Game Shop, and OTK Cheras. Are you ready to see if you can built your power plant empire better than the rest?
Our first meetup post-Chinese New Year saw ZOMBIES in-play (hmm… not superstitious ka?) and the popular – and some said the BEST – 2010 game DOMINANT SPECIES getting intro-ed to the OTK group by Emil. Other games in play were Alhambra, Kaigan, Carson City and Glen More. Another Friday and another 7am meetup!
The 2nd of our Back-to-Back OTK Meetups – click here for yesterday’s meetup report – and this one’s running over the Year End Countdown. Most people would be out at the pub tonite doing the countdown but four gamers decided to meet and countdown over a game of Fresco and El Capitan as we bade farewell to 2010 and welcomes 2011. Cheers to Boardgaming!
With the New Year coming up, we decided to do a double-date this week – that’s rite folks two OTK Meetups back-to-back. This is the report on the 1st OTK Meetup on Thu evening where we did Alien Frontier (again!) and our first-play of a game that we’ve been having in our library for a long time – Power Struggle!
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!
