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:

Strange Games Indeed!

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!

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 😛

Review – Samurai Sword

10 Jan

Samurai Sword is an interesting new version of the classic Wild West Game Bang, not only re-themed for ancient Japan but also with several game “tweaks” that give the game quite a different feel.
