I can maybe make it Tuesday or Wednesday after work. Next week Tuesday (5th) and Wednesday (6th) are higher probability options.

For Battlestar Galactica, we'd need 5 to see it at its best. Small World handles 3--5 gracefully. I've not played Galaxy Trucker.

If you're keen on Battlestar Galactica, there is also a non-trivial chance it will get played at the Petersham RSL on Monday week (4th), which you are more than welcome to come along to. Just check the Monday night thread before popping out.

I'm up for Tuesday the 5th.
Will never say no to BSG, but wouldn't mind Stronghold either.

See you there,
Bastien.

Great, I have 3 friends coming, so that will be at least 5 of us.
Plus Gary if he wants to play with us.
What about a 6:30 start ?

Waouh, that makes 7 !
That will be a BIG BSG session I reckon.
But no worries, still feasible.

Regarding last tuesday, Justus and 2 other guys started with Galaxy Trucker and then played Tobago.
In the meantime, we had a 5-p session of BSG.
It was mad as usual... Was very hard to pick-up the cylons this time.
Humans were doing relatively well... But we gave up when 4 out of 5 players ended up in the brig... We kind of figured out at this point that there was 3 cylons, somehow !!!
Truth was one of the human player decided to play cylon instead !!! Making it nearly impossible for the humans to win... FRAK !!! robot

Man, you'll never get back this bike of yours !!! arrrh

The other two were our temporary visitors from LA who have moved on to New Zealand pastures. We waited a bit but eventually they wanted to try out Galaxy Trucker so we started setting that up.

Galaxy Trucker takes up a ton of table space and I'm not really sure it is physically possible to place all the pieces necessary within fair reach of all players during the build phase. It felt like the kind of game where you have to write off your first play or two as you figure out the connections and how best to design a ship for the game.

Tobago seems like a pretty cool game in theory but in practice two of us didn't like it much. (Not sure about the other two, they didn't voice an opinion.) It felt like the randomness of the cards was a bit hard to deal with. (i.e. in one round I drew 3 treasures and my choices were 2-2-3. In a later round someone else drew 3 treasures and they were 5-5-6.) The pieces and board sure are nice and I'd be willing to give it another go, possibly with only 3-players, before passing final judgment on it.

I confirm the BSG session was a mess
Us "poor humans" couldn't have a single chance to win in front of 3 demoniac cylons (and sympathizer...) !! arrrh

BTW I already loved the tv show and I really liked the game
Looking fwd to playing again (but next time I hope there will not be traitors...ninja )

What a pity, Justus! Actually, next week we could try the Factory Manager from the same designer who did Power Grid. Yesterday, I played that w/ some friends and I really appreciate the system, simple and tricky. Bas, you want to have a try tonite?

Damn, I really want to play Luna Llena! Maybe I'll get a chance at AGE.

Hopefully I'll be able to get along sometime in February.

Sorry, we couldn't make it last time. Some guys got confused w the date... :-/

But if everything goes well, we should play A Game of Thrones (first edition) this tuesday night at the cafe.

So far, I have Guillaume, Fahim and myself. So, we're missing 2 players, if anyone's interested.

Most probably 7pm.
Fahim pulled out officially because "the game is too long", how good is that ?
Guillaume will be busy faily late but hopefully we'll both arrive at 7pm.

Will call you for updates.
