An unexpected call from a regular OTKer Jimmy set us up for this adhoc meetup with the Weiqi gamers. Beside doing a session of Imperial, a game this group is already familiar with, we introduced them to HAVOC, a great poker variant that was very well received. Too bad this game is no longer in print.
OTK Meetup 17/12/10 – Lords of Vegas, Magical Athlete, 7 Wonders, Horse Fever, Leaping Lemmings, Nanuk, Carcassonne, Age of Steam, Confucius
This meetup came right after our Dec New Arrivals, and never before have so many new games hit the OTK tables in one night – Lords of Vegas, Magical Athlete, 7 Wonders, Horse Fever, Leaping Lemmings, and some not-so-new ones like Nanuk, Carcassonne, and Age of Steam – attended by over 18+ gamers; almost a whos-who of the local boardgaming scene. 🙂

A relatively quiet meetup with just one table in play, but it saw a mix of interesting games getting some table-time. Vasco da Gama as a first-play to a few of the gamers, and an old fave Wealth of Nations making a comeback and finally we close-out the night with 18Scan. Not bad for a single table session which lasted 9 hours!
Are you up for some primal bloodletting… bashing in the heads of undeads as the last of the surviving humans dash for the helipads!
This was a mid-week meetup on a Tuesday mainly due to this being a public holiday here in M’sia. There was some buzz lately on 18xx and we decided to make today an “18xx Day” with all newcomers to the 18xx game system welcomed to come and try it out! Did we manage to have some new converts?
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? 😛
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.
