Back in 2019!

8 Feb

Yikes! It’s 2019??? Who would have thought we’d make it to our 11th year! 2018 sure was turbulent! These days we’re meeting in the Hawthorn Hotel, a cosy little place very close to Glenferrie and Auburn train stations. 🚂 Maybe one day we’ll be back in the city, but I’ll need to do a lot of work to make that happen.

In the meantime, we’re having a great time, playing lots of fun games 🙂
According to the poll after the January Cafe Games, the top 3 games played were Bananagrams, Decrypto and Codenames Pictures! Definitely quite popular games, but I also noticed that lots of people claimed to have played some games by themselves, like The Resistance, Were-words and The Climbers … so … I guess not everyone responds… 😛

Codenames Pictures! Okay maybe Continue reading

Welcome to 2018!

2 Feb

Ha! Back to the Royal Melbourne Hotel in force! Seems everyone was pretty keen to catch up and play some games together after the Christmas holidays. Even got a few rave reviews!

Good Cop Bad Cop … an intriguing twist on the “hidden” roles games like Resistance. You each have 3 cards that add together to make up your role. Other players can peek at individual cards, but might get the wrong idea as the Good Cops might have some bad cards, and the criminals might have some good cards…

And we’re back!

The closure of The Celtic Club was a bit of a blow, but now we’ve run a successful trial event at the Royal Melbourne Hotel, we’re back in action!!! If you missed it, come along this Saturday 12-8! No dim cellar for us! Bright, natural light, and delicious meals & drinks 🙂

But since then we also had…

July: Mostly Codenames?

11 Aug

Wow, as you can see from our little video here, there were certainly a lot of games of Codenames that went on in July! (And I probably only caught a selection of them!) Perhaps there were a few other board games too … Continue reading

Not dead! Alive and kicking!

7 Jul

Yes, rumours of our demise have been greatly exaggerated!! Another epic games day was had in our usual location of The Celtic Club! It was such a busy day with many games in such high demand that people had to wait until later! At one stage three separate groups of romantics wanted to play Marrying Mr Darcy! There’s only so much Darcy to go around!!!

You can Continue reading

Still at the Celtic for now!

9 Jun

Well, I don’t have a good replacement venue yet for Cafe Games, so I’m still open to suggestions (in the CBD, serve food). But in the meantime, they haven’t torn down the Celtic Club yet! We’ve managed to get a couple of months reprieve. These photos of the games we played in May might be nostalgia down the track! Remember to tag your friends in them!
