Unfortunately our favourite boardgames venue MyCube Cafe is being sold to new owners. Make sure you come along to our last event there, this Saturday 6th November (2010). (see the event details)
- very friendly staff
- their own boardgames collection
- their innovative “$15 voucher” payment system
- the colourful, light-filled rooms
- delicious food: beef rendang, Milo Godzilla, bubble tea, ramli burgers … (and recently, parmas!)
I don’t know anything about why this is has happened, but I know we’ll all wish the staff the best luck in their future endeavours.
I was going to leave this announcement until the actual event, but I was worried that some of you might have woken up on Saturday and hit “snooze” instead 😀
Do you want their boardgames? 😉
I have been told that they will be selling off their boardgames to anyone interested. If two people are interested in the same game, it will go to the higher offer. (Kinda like an auction, but not).
See the list of MyCube’s boardgames (also has game descriptions) If you are interested in putting in a bid on some of these boardgames, please email me with your name, phone number and price. I will put them into a spreadsheet for MyCube. ALTERNATIVELY – I will also have a sheet at MyCube this Saturday – you can look through the games on the shelves and write down your offers then.
PLEASE CONTACT MYCUBE DIRECTLY WITH ANY FURTHER OFFERS ON GAMES. BIDS CLOSE WED 17TH NOV. (THIS WAS IN 2010)
If you’ve enjoyed playing a particular boardgame at our MyCube events before – perhaps you should buy the game so you can bring it along to Cafe Games events in future!
Or even – you could start your Christmas shopping now! (We’ve all seen the Xmas merchandise in the shops already!)
What does this mean for Cafe Games club?
While it’s very sad that MyCube is being sold, Cafe Games isn’t tied down to one place in particular. We’ve been through this before, when our venue “Isa Brown” in Glenferrie Rd changed hands. It’s an opportunity to find somewhere different, bigger and better perhaps. Hopefully lots of room, lots of tables, and nearby windows to let in the natural light. Hmm Isa Brown had the best windows …
I’ll keep you posted.
But in the meantime … I’m again considering the possibility of running a boardgames picnic in December. A nice sunny park somewhere, with lots of games and good cheer … sounds like great fun 🙂
See you this Saturday*!!
