The Lion Boardgamers are hosting our 4th Gaming Day at the Scythe & Teacup games cafe, 61a Kempston Street, Liverpool, L3 8HE running 11am-11pm. the website for the venue is here.

The games cafe offers free entry. Food and Drink is available at the cafe at very reasonable prices so please do not bring any food or drink of your own.

We've been getting around 80 people coming to the previous couple of events and have had a large variety of games being played.

The games cafe is in walking distance of bus routes and of Lime Street Railway Station. The cafe has no dedicated car parking but there are car parks in the immediate area which provide 150+ spaces - spaces are available for the entire day for £3-4.

As usual, if planning to attend, please let us know here so we can let our hosts know how many they will have to cater for.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Yes it is. October is getting crowded with events trying to be the first thing after Essen, August won't suit people taking Summer holidays and November is too late and has MidCon. We really could do with an extra month around then.

The value of having Scytheday after Essen is minimal; Stewart will have some new games, no-one else will, so September seems better and puts us on a February/September split for the 2 events which is an improvement.

Unfortunately I won't be able to make it to this one as I already have tickets for the NFL game at Wembley that weekend (unlikely clash between hobbies!). I'll see if I can make it to Bolton a few weeks before to get my dose of Northern gaming in.

Just a quick bump to remind people that this day is coming up next month.

It's an ideal place to arrange large/long games.

Two weeks to go.

We have a fair bit of interest from Scythe customers who can be classed as 'not quite casual' gamers. As in they play the lighter euro's. So hopefully all facets of games can be covered

Also, the regular Netrunner night will be happening from 6.30pm. So if people have decks bring them along and there will be opponents.

Hopefully, we'll see a few of you tomorrow at Bolton.

Looks like I will be working in Liverpool in the next month or two for the foreseeable future and commuting each day so I might go along this weekend to get a lay of the land and drop in for a game or two if possible.

Not 100% sure yet though.

Looks like I'll be there but on my own, as my kids say that the Scythe's lights give them headache, the food gives them gut ache and the noise from the maximum acoustic reflection surfaces makes their eyeballs vibrate.

Spoilt, they are.

Suspect you'll end up reading this after the event, but Sean and Jamie, 2 of the Lion Boardgamers regulars like a lot of those games and will look out for you. I think you might like Game of Thrones (2 versions available) and Battlestar Galactica, and they love playing them. Me, I hope to be wondering whether to bid 63 for a large power plant and other tedious business decisions until they throw us out.

Sorry I couldn't make it. Having spent most of the last month away having fun at weekends and away with work during the week, my wife presented me with a big list of jobs and an ultimatum this weekend.
