Hi everyone,

I just started board gaming recently and i really think its fun and interacting with people is great. But the down side is to get people with same frequency to enjoy board games, especially when you need physical people to play together.(not like over the internet)

I have bought couple of new games like Arkaham Horrow, Memoir 44, Dominion and Agricola. Usually i would play with my gf just mainly 2 of us, periodically my friends would join in. I'm thinking of expanding my group of friends in board games who don't mind meeting in North for gaming session.

Let me know if anyone is interested, perhaps once a weekday night regualr gaming seesion?

Leave me a message and i hope to see any of you guys soon. Good gaming!

Cheers.
Andy Tan

Hi Andy,

I am in the same situation as you are! Mainly just me and my girlfriend playing games togther. I am in Yishun during weekends as my parents stay there. Occassionally, we have up to 5 friends to join, so my car boot is always full of games. I have around 70+ games, currently playing more of:
Fresco
Finca
At the Gate of Loyang
Jamaica
Stone Age
Bombay
Let me know if you'd like to meet up for a session for 4!

Cheers
Quentin

@Andy
I forgot to reply your message from the AGoT thread earlier, sorry about that. Don't visit this forum that often... Yishun is a little far as i stay in the Upper Bt Timah area, BUt if there is a place to meet up for some games, I am open to meeting a couple times to see how it goes.. If the sessions are a blast as i hope they will be, then the distance will seem to gradually shrink hahaz.

Hi Andy! Sam here.

Saw your post and decided to respond because I live in Sembawang and had recently just got into Board gaming.

I am excited that there is somebody else who plays Board game living so close by. I have lots of friends but somehow the most I could get anyone to play that wasn't Taboo or Monopoly was Munchkin(great for parties) and Dixit(which is rather interesting in my opinion).

I have difficulty in getting people to play games that require a long play time per round.Anything above 90mins seems too long to non gamers.
I suppose spare time is just a luxury in Singapore.

Recently I bought last night on earth and was totally hooked to it. The game mechanics and scenarios really worked so well with the theme! I was hoping to find more players 2-6 players.

Games I own that I eventually wanna try out...

Ghost Stories
Conquest of planet Earth
Monsterpocalypse
Once upon a time
Ultimate werewolf
Aye my lord...

I think u might notice I am more attracted to "monster" themed games.
What is your favorite game?

@ Sam

You have Monsterpocalypse?! WHo do you play with? I despair finding players for that, after the gaming group in PI kinda died from lack of fresh blood.

Yo Gabriel!!!

First of all, I have only have three the battle box sets shared within me and my friend. We haven't played cos I just got them. We really wanted to play a miniature game like heroscape but that got rather unattainable, Monpoc seemed like it was a good choice now that they are going a bit more mainstream and have a movie in the works with Tim Burton directing.

Anyways, I am totally interested to play and wouldn't mind meeting up but I hope you are patient cos I am really new to this.

I have an I pad and downloaded all the ability cards and I think that might help. My schedules pretty tight this month but just Pm me your no and we will work it out!
