If there's interest we'll be running yet another 15 player game of Fische Fluppen Frikadellen. Spots to this one are obviously limited, so indicate your interest by commenting below.

Oh.. there's some interest!

Sign up here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1h7gsJh966YYBOb4FKHOdibZfqGE...

Edit: And now there's a prize! I'll buy you a burger from Mr Burger's Food Truck. And maybe some chips.... but I'll steal some.

Not the game not pictured, instead this is Johann Sebastian Joust (a digital dexterity game).

In this game your aim is to eliminate your opponents by making the move faster than the music that's playing. But beware, if you move faster you'll eliminate yourself. Last player standing gets to lord it over the other players.

We'll be playing this on the grass of Edinburgh Gardens. Games only go for five minutes (and is excellent the darker it gets), so you don't need to sign up for this one... just get your game face on and jump in.

Check out the video for details

I really like this game.

It's very dynamic, relatively quick, though it can be more than a little confusing on first play. So play it more than once!

Other games I'll bring:
Indonesia
The Great Zimbabwe
Glory to Rome
Looney Pyramids there's about 10 games I'd like to try with these

You know that game that's supposed to take 8 minutes, but really takes about 15-20?

We'll be setting up a game with a chess clock where you'll get an average of 20 seconds per turn (we'll confirm the timings... in the past we've used between 20 and 30 seconds).

This results in a 2p game being just under 9 minutes long, 3p being 10 minutes long and the 4p game being just under 11 minutes long.

There's no time for AP and if you run out of time, then you'll also run out of turns. It's super hectic, but fun!

8 Minute empire as it was meant to be played

Er... so we'll be having a Carcassonne Tournament!

I'm tossing up what version we should be using though. Had originally planned to do it with the latest in the Around the World series (Carcassonne: Gold Rush) but the English version wasn't released and... y'know...

So while I quite like South Seas, I'm aware it doesn't get all that much love. So I'll put it to the peoples... which would you prefer? South Seas, Classic or a mix of both?

One of the hottest games from BGG Con.

Described as Dixit meets Cluedo.

A co-op game for up to 7 players. A lot of fun and quick to learn. Plays in about 30 mins.

Should get played quite a lot over the weekend or ask to borrow.

(I don't usually play co-ops and its not in English and I still bought it)

We're also picking up Rok's copy of Panamax so we'll both have copies there and can both run it.

I'm also bringing:



Edit (edit (edit!)) Eeh, nope, seems Nathan picked up a copy of Rokoko - good work Nathan!

Also willing to bring a few slightly quirky titles like Wiraqocha, Mord im Arosa or even Lost Legends which I wouldn't mind trying out some more.

I keep all my small games in my car so they'll all be with me, but the pick of the bunch at the moment would be Rise to Power which is currently up for preorder at Rule & Make.


There's other stuff I guess but I've left this a bit late, sorry! Been a touch busy, but I'll check in tonight (Thursday) and can swing by home Friday night if there are any special requests, feel free to go digging in my collection here on BGG.
