I don't live anywhere near Australia, but that sounds really cool and I'd love to see some photos of the exterior, interior, anything! (And I suspect your potential customers might, as well.)

I went and played a few games this afternoon ... nice people, cool enough inside in spite of the hot day, and a large choice of games to play.

(I played Manila, Tigris & Euphrates and Modern Art -- the first two with the owners, and the last one with some other visitors).

Being right next to China Town, most of the patrons were chinese. There were about eight tables set up. They have their own bathroom, which helps. The cafe is kind of hidden away on the second floor, but there is a sign outside saying something in Chinese with "boardgamegeek" in English near in the middle.

Good luck with this thing, Gary! And thanks for making me feel welcome ...

I'm planning to go on tuesday night around 6:30pm.
On the menu for the night, I suggest:
- Ad Astra
- Endeavor
- Rush n' Crush (my copy)

So far, Vincent said yes, Nathan and Justus said maybe.
Guys, feel free to suggest as well.

See you there,
Bastien.

Yesterday, Justus, Gary and I started with Endeavor...
A very fine game actually, quiet fast, easy to understand, and still plenty of decisions to make. Only drawback for me, it's a bit abstract.
Justus won, Gary and I were far behind, I had 1 point more than Gary actually but just because Gary decided to use Slavery. Bad boy ! shake

Then, after a break, Vincent joined us and we played Ad Astra which is Settlers meets Race, kind of. I liked the planning phase, although it's fairly unpredictable. I was disapointed by the lack of direct interaction though... I won that, mainly because I had one more ship than the others...

Gary, tell us when you will receive Stronghold, I'd really like to try it !

Gary, Guillaume, Vincent and myself played Chinatown first.
Very simple rules, but quite solid and fun game. Reminds me of Acquire in a way.

Then, Guillaume had to go. And Julia joined us.
We played 2 sessions of Modern Art !!!
It was total madness.
With the right crowd, it s a fantastic game !!!

Yep, it's a pity. By the way, I got lots of new stuff yesterday including Castle Panic, Tobago, At the gate of Loyang, Stronghold, Rise of Empire, Aladdin's Dragons, The adventurers, and power grid: factory manager.

Have fun at holiday and welcome after new year!

I'm visiting Sydney until Jan 7. Anyone up for a day of gaming at Booty Bay?

They've got a great selection there - I played Dominion Seaside and Touch of Evil tonight, both fun.

I'd be especially interested to try out Battlestar Galactica, Small World, or Galaxy Trucker. Right now, I'm available any day and/or night except 12/31 and 1/1.
