Hello Melbournians (???)

I am on a business trip to your lovely city and will have a lot of free time in the coming days, and I would love to use it to play some boardgames.

I play all types of games, including Euros and 2p games and love heavy - longer games.

So if you host a gaming evening/morning/afternoon (with my current jet lag it really isn't that important) and have a place for an extra player - please let me know.

Happy gaming!

Hey,

I just returned from Melbourne after visiting my Brother.

Melbourne is buzzing for board gaming. My Bro took me to 3 excellent game shops in the CBD (central business district).

We attended a game night at the Royal Standard Hotel on William Street. It was pretty amazing. Wednesday night and I think 60 to 80 attended playing all sorts of great board games. Good food, good drink and good games. What else is there?

Recommended if you are in town.

We never went along to it, but the shop called Good Games on Lonsdale Street has a Thursday night thing going sometimes too.

Great city.

Pretty much everything Adam said.

There is also a great meet up group in Northcote (15min north by train of the CBD) that runs some Sundays, very good.

I presume there are adult gamers there playing at the same time.
