Tweet Repeat! (The Tabletop Day That Was)

30 Apr

So a few weeks ago we celebrated Wil Wheaton‘s “International Tabletop Day”, and because he likes the whole “hashtag” thing, I “live tweeted” photos from our Cafe Games session that day. I don’t usually use Tweeter (Twitter?) much so I did fumble it and lose some shots … but if you were following the Cafe Games Twitter feed that day, this is what you would have seen:

9 Apr

Hope you’re getting excited for our event for International Tabletop Day this Saturday 11th April? #tabletopday !

But here in Melbourne, we never need any excuses to have big games events. We have so many! Here’s our big Cafe Games event last month…

Strange Games Indeed!

6 Mar

Not many photos this month – I was too busy playing games for once!! It was nice to be back at the Celtic Club, lots of room for us!

While looking through these photos, it strikes me that the games are all quite unusual. Even though many of them are light and have easy rules, they’re not your old-school games!

Good to see you too!

13 Feb

Everyone seemed pretty enthusiastic to be back at Cafe Games for the first time in 2015 … or maybe just so many of you are keen to pose for photos :-) It’s always a bit unusual (interesting!) to be in a special different venue just for January – The friendly Bull and Bear Tavern (but remember it’s just for January!)

It’s  Continue reading

Shiny Baubles and Missing Pieces

Way back when …

11 Jul

Sorry, I’ve been very busy the last couple of months, haven’t had much time, but better late than never eh? Here’s a little taste of the hijinks that went on in … not the June Cafe Games but the May Cafe Games. (yep – sometime soon there will need to be a double blog update!)

Cafe Games – not Supernova

9 May

Apparently this weekend we clashed with the Supernova anime/sci-fi convention. You’d think they’d be more careful picking dates, but we’re sorry if they took a hit because of us. Turns out there’s a lot of geeky overlap between our members and Supernova fans! We had lots of fun anyway…. despite there being no cosplay. It’s not banned you know :-P
