I'm moving to Brisbane next week (from Canada), and am thus in the market for a new gaming group. I'm a heavy eurogamer/18xxer (plus I love dexterity games, for some reason): think Indonesia, Age of Steam, 1856, Titan, etc.

I'm aware of Critical Mass, and will likely be attending once I recover from jetlag and figure out transit in Brisbane. Anyone else out there?

Hi Devin,

I'm also moving to Brisbane shortly (from Sydney via Melbourne)

I'll be in town in early August and looking forward to meeting up with a new group too.

Cheers,

Scott

Hi,

The League of Extraordinary Gamers is based at Cavendish Road State High School and meets monthly for an entire day. The club received a $12k grant for boardgames in 2007 and we offer members access to our huge library of Euro and other boardgames which can be borrowed between meetings. Our web-site is at: http://au.geocities.com/qldlegs/

Several of our members play at LXG and Critical Mass.

Regards,

Keith

Cheers!

I'm settling in now, we'll see if I can't get out to game soon.

Devin, there is also a Queensland University Gaming Society which meets on campus on Mondays.

Scott, make sure you look up Critical Mass when you're in town. We have a massive thread in the Brisbane forum. Dates and locations are in the first post.

Aha! That might indeed be useful. I'll have to check it out when the undergrads come back

It'll be best BEFORE they come back. When I was attending there were some very experienced gamers who'd been there regularly for 10 years or so - very much worth playing with, and always there no matter what the undergrads were doing. Dean also goes there, I believe - he is one of the new guys.


BTW, I think they are meeting in the Priestley Building right now, if I understand the schedule.

Unfortunately they're not there, I'll ask Dean next time I see him what's up.

I was one of the long term group but I'm now in the UK.

John does David A still moonlight at critical miss? Maybe ask him what the state of play is at QUGS.

QUGS has a yahoo! group I'm now on, so hopefully I can track them down tomorrow with the information disclosed. Failing that I'll head to Indooroopilly and critical mass. Shame that they're the same day.

It's pretty rare to see David A or Darryl at CM even though we have meetings at Chermside now. Dean is probably our best contact.

Daniel! Now I know where you went. Travis moved south, David is probably teaching somewhere outside of Brisbane?? Dean and his friend Simon (of allaboutgames) are QUGS regulars but they may have signed up with QUGS after you had left.

Nope, David has graduated but he's still in town, living somewhere near me.
