The Remembrance Day Edition

No minute of silence but we can honour our fallen by exercising the freedom they preserved for us. Themes of conflict, diplomacy, simulations are encouraged this week. Lest we forget.

Sounds like last week's Halloween edition went well. Too bad Glenn didn's appear in the costume he described. Maybe this week? Thanks to all who got into the spirit and dressed up, Congrats to Matt for the win!

Events Update:

Ludo Outouauis 2015: 20-22 November at Centre communautaire T├ętreau in Gatineau. A solid 3 days of all-inclusive open gaming! http://ludo-outaouais.com/ Registration is open! It is their 10th anniversary so it should be extra special!

Ottawa Pop Expo: 21-22 November at EY Centre. http://www.ottawapopexpo.ca/ A bit of an overlap with Ludo but you can have your choice that way.


There is a meeting of the Kanata Board Gamers every Thursday; next one is 5 November 2015. The start time for the session is 6pm till approximately 11pm.

We meet at the Kanata Community Christian Reformed Church (KCCRC) at 46 Castlefrank Rd, which is beside the Hazeldean Public Library. There is parking outside. Just go straight through the doors facing the lot, 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 our board game library fund. 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 Steve know, and he'll have them made up. 100% of the $7.50 fee goes to CanGames 2015 to support kids games, and the cards are good for 1 calendar year from the month you get them.

Feel free to use this forum thread to discuss what to play!
