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!

11 Jan

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!!!

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!

Excited to be back!

2 Feb

Wow back into the new year with a bang! So many people came – numbers steadily building through the Social Games section of the day, with well over 100 by the start of the “Any Games” half. At one stage we even had to scrounge extra chairs and tables from elsewhere in the venue! Tricky to get them past people already happily ensconced playing games! 🙂 I’m glad you guys had such a good time!
