Come join us for the inaugural KLOG! This will be on every 4th Saturday of the month where possible except December and January (to avoid Christmas and Cancon) where it will be the Saturday before. This space is much smaller than GLOG, but could probably handle 25-30 people if we don't mind being cosy. I guess we'll see how we go.

What: a free casual board/card/dice games event
Where: Kippax Library, Hardwick Cres, Holt.
When: Saturday, 28 November
Time: 10am-4pm

The library open hours are 10am-4pm, so if you arrive at 10 you will have to give me a hand setting up tables and chairs. If you're staying til 4, you'll have to give me a hand packing up.

There is only one meeting room at Kippax Library. After you go through the library's internal doorway, turn to your left and the room will not be far away. There are toilets available in the hall outside of the library's internal doorway.

Feel free to bring some games to play. I will have a selection from my collection available as well. Just be sure to pack the games up neatly, just like how you found them.

Upcoming KLOG dates in 2015:

Saturday 28 November
Saturday 19 December

Now that the November GLOG has passed, bring on the KLOG!

Planning to be there, but not until after lunch. I'm keen to try the co-op version of Clacks, any takers?

They explained everything in detail and at great length. After they finished I sat, despondent, contemplating a bleak and empty future. "I’m glad you’re depressed" said one. "It means you’ve understood the situation.”

I'd like to get in a couple of larger (number of players) interactive games:

Jamaica
Yedo
Discworld: Ankh-Morpork
BANG! The Dice Game

Maybe a couple heavier interactive games if anyone is interested:

Tammany Hall
Cosmic Encounter
Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island

I was hoping to come to KLOG, as it's very close to home, but Xmas parties are starting already....damn it.
Hopefully there'll be a next one.

I don't think I will be able to make it, but look forward to coming along to one in the new year. Good luck!

I'd be happy to join you for any of those games, Don. (most of which I haven't played)

Likewise, though particularly keen to try BANG! The Dice Game and Cosmic Encounter. Also plan to bring a couple recent KS games that remain unplayed, like Orléans: Deluxe Edition and Epic Card Game.

Unforeseen circumstances didn't allowed me to attend. How was it?

Thanks to Kon for playing Tides of Time, a really neat two player drafting game. It was great to roll out my home brew of Tom Lehmann's The City with Dave and Kon, too.

Hope to stay longer next time. Go KLOG!

Thanks - there was probably at least 20 people there which was great, with space to accommodate a few more if need be.

I was a little worried because GLOG is always so packed, with KLOG not having the same amount of space it could have been super squishy. But maybe Kippax isn't as convenient as Gungahlin for some. And vice versa for others, some people came past who were locals but didn't go to GLOG. So it's a winner in my books.

Let's see how next month goes...

Thanks Jess for organising and I think it was a success.

I met some new friendly people and got to play some games for the first time, both big plusses for me.

I look forward to the next one.
