Kickstarter Koven Hey is there a kickstarter you are just bursting to talk about? A really exciting an anticipated new game you can't wait to play? Why not post it here? The other KBGer's can have a look and maybe we'll get some great games in the club?
To "kick" this off, I wanted to mention a KS launching by my friend and former KBGer, Daryl Chow. The game is Overbooked. Here is the trailer:
There is a meeting of the Kanata Board Gamers every Thursday; next one is 16 November 2017. 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 2017 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!
