All reality is a game. Physics at its most fundamental, the very fabric of our universe, results directly from the interaction of certain fairly simple rules, and chance... (Iain Banks)

I hope this gets a lot of support. The Melbourne Chess Club is a very good boardgame venue, and there are dozens of cafes, restaurants and bars in the area. It should be an excellent weekend.

Link to google maps. Zoom in to see all the eateries (and drinkeries).

Come along, play games, meet people and support a new event which could grow into something we all look forward too!
