No Happy Salmon?

9 Mar

A quick little video showing some of the board games we played at Cafe Games last in February … pffft, no one got pictures or video of Happy Salmon being played? Continue reading

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!

End of one big year and the start of another!

We had a great boardgames picnic at the Royal Botanic Gardens in December. Despite confusing cloudy/sunny weather beforehand, it cleared right up once we started playing…

Great old games!

12 Aug

Often people come along to their first Cafe Games and are surprised how many new games there are, board games they’ve never heard of before, so many new ideas. But looking through the photos from July, I realised that we do play quite a number of games that have actually been around for a while – they must be popular!

Dashing through June

30 Jun

Only a few photos this time. Bit of an irony, that an event as busy as June, with so many friends and games, would have less photos, but you’ve got to allow me *some* time to play myself!! 😛

If you’re on Facebook, remember to click through the photos to tag your friends in the photos in case they didn’t see them!

Good Sports

13 May

I’ve always maintained that part of the value of playing games is that we get to see more of peoples’ personalities that might not come out in everyday conversation. You learn more about who is optimistic, who is pessimistic, who is impulsive, who worries too much … you might also learn things about yourself that you didn’t realise, that maybe you’ll consider changing.dbd57bcbb3fff7245025a39061012200 Continue reading

March Merriment

7 Apr

Ouch, 2016 continues to speed by! Codenames is still very popular, and games derived from Monopoly are still with us. Cards Against Humanity still has a few die-hard supporters, but is far from the days when it was the craze. Hedbanz is showing unexpected popularity, and the deduction game Deception seems to have crept into the gap left by the disappearance of Mysterium.

Anyway, here’s what we got up to in our March event …
