Where:
Firestorm Games

Whats being played:
We have a couple of players that usually bring in a selection from their personal collections to play with people.
Feel free to bring in any of your own games that you would like to play, and feel free to post here to arrange players.

Additional information
Please note that Firestorm games charges £3.60 entrance fee for their gaming area. If you are a Firestorm Member, then this will cover your entrance fee. Please note that their gaming area is quite large.

I'm looking forward to this one already! I'm debating bringing Arkham Horror along this time, if anyone would be interested in playing? I have high hopes of my card sleeves for it arriving at some point in the near future.

I've got all of the expansions except for the Kingsport and Curse of the Dark Pharoah expansions, although I've only managed to get about ten plays of the base game in so far and haven't used any of the expansions yet. I was looking at adding in the Madness and Injury cards from the Dunwich expansion and the extra Madness and Injury cards from the Miskatonic expansion after a few more base games, and possibly adding in the gate bursts and relationship cards from Lurker/Miskatonic, but I don't want to overwhelm new players. Including me...

You REALLY should use the injury/madness cards. I've played the game a few times, and once with the cards, and it was so much better.

Rules are simple. If your health or Sanity is reduced to zero, you go to the asylum/hospital, draw the relevant card, restore both stats to full and then continue the game on your next turn. You also no longer need to discard half your items and clues.
So much better!!!

(Apologies if I have that wrong, but thats how I remember it)

You are devoured if you end up with 2 copies of the same injury/madness

but Yep thats about it!

And the ones from the Miskatonic expansion add injuries that match with madnesses and vice versa - makes the odds of getting two of one thing more likely.

So... should I be cautiously optimistic that if I turn up with Arkham Horror, there will be people willing to play?

I'm afraid I will be looking to play the smaller quicker games however I will ask at the society as many of them haven't played it and are always up for trying new things!

I've got a lull in the coursework and so i will definatly be there.

Jake got the day off too so he should be there.


Not much response from the game soc but I suspect Steve will be along.

EDIT:
fen/franziska would you be able to bring Takenoko along as I would like a game.. bit worried its simple to have replay value hence would like to try before buy. Also what was the game you played with morgan and the others at the last games day since they have mentioned it a few times and I would like to give it a go.
Thank you

I actually logged in to say we would be bringing Takenoko!

I think it was Battlestar Express.

You may be talking about Eruption. That's a game I wanted badly since it came out and may have talked about but we did not play it. Or anything else that you were not involved in...

Jake thinks it was called archeology... so it probably didn't even have a volcano in it *shrugs*

Ah! We played Archaeology - just not last games day, either at the one before that or even before that. We can bring that one along again too, it's very good and quite quick.
