Hi all!

Just wondering, anyone around Limerick that visits this forum often? I mainly play Descent 2nd edition with my wife with some cooperative rules but I still have to finish painting everything before we can play again!

I also have space hulk recently bought but still on his sprues as I want to paint everything else before and then switch to paint SH.

Just wondering if any of you play a particular game or have a fancy group or whatever.

I know the gathering hosts board games on Tuesday so I might drop by there sometimes

Regards!
P.S.: I'm a spaniard in case I had made any mistake

Hello,
Thursday night is the night The Gathering hosts boardgames and I know the guy that hosts it has Space Hulk and recently bought Descent (I think someone else might even be running it there this Thursday). Newcomers are always welcome and there a few other small groups around Limerick. Definitely go to Knavecon, Conclave and Brocon to bump into some!

Hi guys, living in Dooradoyle in Limerick city but only available to play at weekends. Interested in boardgames primarily, but also in playing Dystopian Wars, Necromunda or Mordheim.
Will be at Knavecon next weekend and hope to make a few contacts there but would be delighted to get chatting to peeps on here to start the dice rolling

Limerick is pretty well serviced by gamer groups. Attending Knavecon is by far the best way of meeting us - it got me back into playing tabletop 18 months ago after a 20 year hiatus.

I know of regular groups playing Tuesday and Thursday nights, and The Gathering's boardgame night is also Thursday's (I've been meaning to call in their some night for quite a while, but it clashes with our own group). There have been the occasional weekend games, but they tend to be special occasions (someone's wife and/or kids are away and house is free!)

Our own group plays just about every genre going, the only game that doesn't really work with us are really heavy war games and games that require repeated play over weeks - which has affected the likes of campaign plays of Descent. Other than that, everything goes!

Make sure you meet the organisers of Knavecon, Victor and Declan (who commented earlier in this thread) and they'll sort you out!

I always wanted to play Mordheim. I almost bought the box from eBay but came to reality and realized is expensive as shit (I know is OOP).

Yep, it's fairly pricey alright. However, the rules are available online andyou can use a variety of miniatures to put together a warband. If you fancy giving it a whirl let me know.

I don't know the amount of miniatures needed, I have some Warriors of Chaos and some High Elves from Island of Blood, but none of them assembled/painted. Would love to try it though.

Thanks! We checked out The Gathering as it was close. O'Mahony's is the book store, right? We saw that too. Yeah, they had games, but could you play there? We'll have to look into Easons next time.

Don't bother with Easons. Nothing you won't get anywhere else to be honest.

If its a game of something then either The Gathering (various wargames/cardgames/rpgs & boardgames on different nights) or if in town on a Tuesday or Thursday evening there is a regular meet-up for boardgames. Let us know when you are back and we can arrange something.
