A number of people approched me at Gencon OZ asking if their were any board games clubs based on the Gold Coast. Does anyone have any details of any organised group there?

Regards,

Keith

Re: Any Cubs on the Gold Coast?


I thought this was some sort of solicitation when I first read the title...

Sorry, I can't help you out, I just couldn't resist not posting.

Honestly, I thought he was looking for...well, Cubs fans on the Near North Side of Chicago.

Yes, new board games club set up (due to desperation)

Beer & Boardies
at the Fox & Hounds Restaurant
on Oxenford-Mt Tambourine Road

1st Tuesday of every month 6.30 pm to about 9.00 pm.

Set up by Rob Mulholland who was founding member of Baycon games convention in the UK.

Games tend to be the shorter ones - have been playing Thurn & Taxis, Carcasonne, Airlines, Holiday AG, Acquire.

He is trying to encourage new gamers to the hobby. All welcome.
Would be interested in hearing of any gamers who want a day session for longer games.

Keith,

I am running the Beer & Boardies games club at the Fox & Hounds inn on the Mount Tamborine/Oxenford Road juction with Elavation Drive in Wongawallon every 1st Tuesday of the month from 6.30pm. Last session saw 9 members, although its early days yet. the landlord is very supportive and gives us plenty of tables and we can drink proper beer (draught Speckled Hen & Bombardier Bitter) at the same time.

I don't bring the whole games library along (500+ games) due to size but can supply on request a pretty fair selection of games with a very good pile of German titles and new games from designers such as Martin Wallace (Warfrog Games) and Reiner Knizia.

Popular games at the moment are Acquire, Airlines, Holiday Ag, Carcasonne,
Flusspiraten, Billabong, 6-tagge Rennen, Tayu, Thurn und Taxis, Settlers, Puerto Rico, and Automobile.

Always looking for new members. This is not a GW or MTG games club as there are plenty of people playing that stuff in alcohol free sports halls and the like. If you are interested please feel free to give me a call on 07 5533 7116.

Cheers

Hi all,

I've recently moved down to the Gold Coast and am keen to hear if there are any active clubs down here playing games?

I've read there's a few clubs been spoken of - if any are active, when's the next meeting? It would be good to go along!

Look forward to hearing!

Cheers,

Mark
