Next meeting of the Ottawa Games Group is this Wednesday, February 8th, 2012.

If you are coming, I invite you to list the specific games you are bringing below.

-----------------------------------------------
Is there something you would like to play?

If there is something you would like people to bring, post it here.
If there is something you are bringing that you think others would like to see post it here.

Everyone is welcome, so if you have ever thought of joining in the fun, come on out this Wednesday and check out the action.

Please Remember $2.50 goes to the Legion.

We start around 6:30.
We usually go until 9:30 or 10:00pm.

---------------------------
What are you doing at Gamesummit?

The big weekend is coming up!
Are you meeting people and playing, shopping, watching a demonstration, or volunteering?

Steve @ KGG is looking for help - lots and lots of it!
He booked something like 350 man hours of fun games and tourneys (WOW).

If there is something you want to teach or play, just let him know.

---------------------------

Question of the Fortnight


Gimmick that really works...
In Merchants of Amsterdam you have a dutch auction timer.
It is loud, it stands out, it takes a lot of space and is integral to the game.
However, as gimmcky as it is, it really makes the game.
What game has a gimmick component like the dutch auction timer do you think really works?

---------------------------

LOCATION
The address is:
Canadian Legion Branch 480 - Westboro, 389 Richmond Road, upstairs.

Google maps:

Please bring $2.50 for the Legion.
Please remember on Wednesday nights the Legion serves food downstairs.

--------------------------------


MEMBERSHIP IS OPTIONAL - BUT CAN HAVE IT'S PRIVILEGES!

Membership provides discounts at local retailers through a membership card system.

There are two options:
1. $5.00 to Steve Larkin in Kanata. This entitles you to the cards
2. Prepay 3 weeks for the Legion (3 X $2.50 = $7.50)**. This entitles you to the cards and provides three weeks of dues to the Legion.
**Looks like it is still $7.50.

Recommendations are as follows:
If you are going to play at the Legion at least twice, I would do the prepay.
However, if you are in the west end and do not plan to go to the Legion, I would just pay the $5.00 to Steve at KGG.
Steve goes by srlarkin on BGG.

Just geekmail or ask at a session if you are interested in the membership discount cards.

Already donated to Jamie at GS2012!

Lemontang and I might be there...After 21 hours of gaming we're a little beat.

Might bring Quarriors which she picked up today. We also got At-43 Op Damocles, but I dunno how much people are into minis. Also got some old school Robotech RPGs.

Hope to be there!

Oh WOW WOULD I EVER! I just finished a game night with my dad and his friends on the old Avalon Hill Civ game and they were almost killing me for info on how the new one is, esp w the 5player expansion. I'm sure I could talk Trevor into playing as well. Save me a seat!

Played it. Liked it.
I would recommend you get there before five AND make sure everyone reads the rules beforehand if you want a 50/50 shot of finishing the game.

Sounds good. Maybe we should keep it to 4 players then to try to keep it within the time frame. Reading the rules beforehand is a good suggestion too.

Assuming there's room, I'd get in on either AGoT TBG or Civ. I have both, so I can bring my copies so we have an extra set of rules. I'll try to get there as early as I can.

I can get there as early as 5pm. I will also try and brush up on the rules tonight if the new puppy allows me the time. (Its a half golden retriever, half burneese mountian dog)Otherwise I have years of the video game experience and successfully won the Avalon Hill version a month ago w/o ever having had read the instructions for it as well.

I'll be coming to continue my Commands & Colors: Ancients battle versus war_hero, and maybe try to check out another game or two if there's time. I don't own too many games myself, but I just got Yggdrasil if anybody likes co-ops.

I also had a question: does anybody own the Memoir 44 Campaign Book 1? My wife and I play this game and really want to do it as a campaign but the book is totally sold out everywhere, never to be reprinted. Book 2 seems to need a bunch of the expansions. If somebody owns it, maybe they could bring it and I could take a peek and see what I'm missing?

Re: OGG -- CHEO announcement -- GOA, AofEIII, TTR, ROTW, PR, SoC etc. Wednesday February 23rd 2012
I got the sitter in place so I will be there with Risk Legacy. I would also like to bring Power Grid and maybe someone can give me a run down on how to play as the rule book is baffling me.

Off-topic, but got some post-Game Summit awesome sauce news!

I won the Frankendie draw from Geek Sweets! Woohoo!

Oddly enough, I've had countless opportunities to have Al show me it, but somehow I always miss the demos!

Now I have no excuse, and my own copy! Woot!

Nice.

BTW

The Samurai game I got at the garage sale is not the same as we played. We played the card game version and I got the board game.
