I wish I could remember to take more pix!
Thanks to volunteers: theSteve, Joe, Paul, Hans, Bill, Jamie, Mark, John and Mark! Extra thanks to Cangames for lending a hand with tear down!
Things were busy; over the three days we had 105 visitors who played 48 different games. That is 48% of the games in the library. The most popular games was Splendor.
Thanks also due to Cardboard Kingdom who loaned us some spiffy new games!
WifegonCon 2015 Dates TBD...
Preparation meeting for KanataKon 2015: This will be great, now that we are starting the planning so early, right?
KanataKon 2015 Planning is underway. Looking for any & all suggestions!
Thanks also to those who got a memebership (which helps CanGames).
Weather theme anyone?
We are at: www.kanataboardgamers.ca
There is a meeting of the Kanata Board Gamers every Thursday; next one is 21 May 2015. The start time for the session is 6 PM till approximately 11pm.
The place is: Kanata Community Christian Reformed Church
Detailed directions follow, but it is quite close to the Hazeldean Public Library.
Also, send me a geekmail if you want to let me know about anything - from suggestions for raising club attendance, club purchase suggestions, or just telling me whether you can make the meeting.
Feel free to use this forum thread to discuss what to play!
You may bring food & drink (be neat!). We can rearrange the tables & chairs provided we return everything an keep things tidy.
Our meetings are posted on meetup; check out http://meetup.gamesforall.ca/
Kanata Community Christian Reformed Church (KCCRC) is 46 Castlefrank Rd (directions follow). There is parking outside. Go straight through the front doors and you can't miss us!
$2.50 will be collected from each person. The first $30 collected is donated to our gracious venue. Any left over will go into a boardgame library fund. Check out the library (BGG user: KanataBoardGamers). Members can borrow from the library any time. Borrow it one session, bring it back for the next!
Visitors are always welcome. Come on in and check us out! There is no obligation, but if you decide to become a member it only costs $7.50 and entitles you to 10% discount cards at select local games stores.
Note if you want the discount cards (for Fandom II, Mrs. Tiggy Winkles, and Comic Book Shoppe), let me know & I'll have them made up. 100% of the $7.50 fee goes to Can Games 2014 to support kids games and the cards are good for 1 calendar year from the month you get them. You have donated $0 towards CanGames 2016.
Please add to this thread with your suggestions of what to play.
Hope to see you then!

I feel like explosions. Anybody have a good game with explosions? There's got to be some game where you get victory points for explosions…

My contribution will be BANG! The Bullet!
Or time for that old chestnut from the collection...
I didn't realize it was quite that old a chestnut.
Anybody up for a Combat Commander: Pacific session? Plenty of booms there.
