Hi all,

I am looking to start a meet up in Amersham, uk.

Anyone interested?

I thought perhaps twice a month to begin with at a local pub? At least until numbers justify renting out anything like a village hall. With the aim of being a weekly club in the long run (or sooner if it works).

Monday or a wednesday are the only evenings I am free on a regular basis.

My "background": 44 married with three kids (not that I feel that matters) but what does matter is that I enjoy a range of mediumish weight games such as concordia, la granja, key flower, el grande, kraftwagen, evolution, voyages of marco polo, etc.

Reply here or message me if you are interested.

Regards,

Steve

Hi Steve

I'd be up for coming along. I live in Chesham and work in Amersham. I'm at the early/exploratory/excitable phase of my boardgaming addiction, so happy to play anything!

If you're keen to drum up more numbers I reckon I could find one or two other local people who would be interested in coming along too.

I can't do Wednesdays regularly but Mondays work

Excellent.
Anyone else interested would be good.

Next step is a venue. Happy for this to be Amersham or Chesham.

Any suitable pubs in Chesham that are quietish on a Monday and have table space that you are aware of?

Perhaps we could aim for first to be two weeks today (Monday 14th November) and that gives us time to find a venue. I will have a scout around as well.

I can't make 14th unfortunately, my wife is away with work so I need to stay in with the kids. I could do Monday 21st if that's any good?

I'm equally happy with either Amersham or Chesham, so happy with whatever you decide. The Crown in Ley Hill on the outskirts of Chesham would be quiet enough I think and has plenty of table space. In Chesham itself the Queens Head has a nice atmosphere but only one or two tables that would be big enough probably.

I guess you'll know places in Amersham, but I often play games in the Metro Lounge at lunchtime with work colleagues, they have plenty of space. Or one of the pubs in Amersham old town might work? though I forget which would have the table space.

I'll see if I can get us any more interested players and let you know

21st is good for me. I'll have a scout around and if I don't see anything suitable lets try the crown.

Hi Colin and Steve

If you end up with Wednesdays I won't be able to make it most weeks as my wife is out Weds evenings but I'll try to come along occasionally

If we're still on for 21st I have one other guy definitely interested in coming plus two other maybes

Happy to play or bring any game. I will bring a few but if you have a suggestion from my list then do ask. I store some at work tosave space at home so I would need to bring it back this week to take next Monday. Any idea what table space will be like. I was hoping to get out there and take a look but have been very busy with work.

I just rang the Crown to see what they think. The guy said its pretty quiet on Monday evenings so we should be able to get a big table, but he has put my name down for 21st to reserve a table so we will at least have a table, and hopefully the biggest one! I seem to remember they have quite a few decent sized tables in the bar area

Thanks I'll have a browse of your games list! Of the games you mentioned in this thread I've only played el grande - played a couple of times online and once live (I now have a copy) and really liked it

By the way the guy I know who said he'll come along on 21st has just signed up to BGG. His username is Tasselhoff Burrfoot.

7pm is good for me too

Let me know if you'd like me to bring any particular games along too, although I don't have that many (yet!)

Had a look through your list. I'd be happy to play anything really, perhaps something I haven't played before that you recommend on your list would be cool. I've played el Grande, castles of burgundy, dominion, magic, chess and hearts out of your games you rate 8 or higher, so anything else would be a new experience

Happy to bring Medici too

I'll see if I can confirm tomorrow if the "maybes" I mentioned are coming, then at least we'll have a better idea of number of players

Just myself for tomorrow.
I will bring half a dozen games if different styles and length and then you can see what you fancy.

I will also up a guild so we can set up a different message for each time we meet.

Sounds great, looking forward to it. I should be there at 7 with the other two guys (I'm giving them a lift).

If you get there first I reserved a table under the name Will, feel free to impersonate me and ask for the table!

First meet was at the Crown in Ley Hill.

Four of us met for some food, beer and games.

Started with Sushi go while people ate (Mark won)

Then played Peloppones (first game for everyone except me)

Finished with Hoity Toity (Won by Will) - an old Klaus Teuber (Catan) game that I had not heard of.

A good evening and hopefully the first of many.

Will - you happy to meet again in two weeks (5th December). I am happy to meet in the Crown again. Else I can see how the Swan looks on a Monday in Amersham.

Yes a great first session!

5th is good for me. I'm pretty indifferent on location - shall we try Amersham? Might be a better location for people to get to generally

Thanks for organising
Will
