Next meeting of the Ottawa Games Group is this Wednesday, February 8th, 2012.

If you are coming, I invite you to list the specific games you are bringing below.

-----------------------------------------------
Is there something you would like to play?

If there is something you would like people to bring, post it here.
If there is something you are bringing that you think others would like to see post it here.

Everyone is welcome, so if you have ever thought of joining in the fun, come on out this Wednesday and check out the action.

Please Remember $2.50 goes to the Legion.

We start around 6:30.
We usually go until 9:30 or 10:00pm.

---------------------------
What are you doing at Gamesummit?

The big weekend is coming up!
Are you meeting people and playing, shopping, watching a demonstration, or volunteering?

Steve @ KGG is looking for help - lots and lots of it!
He booked something like 350 man hours of fun games and tourneys (WOW).

If there is something you want to teach or play, just let him know.

---------------------------

Question of the Fortnight
What is the worst Catan Variant / Spinoff / Version you ever played?

Can't stand Candamir?
Stone the Stone Age?
Good knight to the knights?

Which one for you really took a good game and destroyed it for you?




---------------------------

LOCATION
The address is:
Canadian Legion Branch 480 - Westboro, 389 Richmond Road, upstairs.

Google maps:

Please bring $2.50 for the Legion.
Please remember on Wednesday nights the Legion serves food downstairs.

--------------------------------


MEMBERSHIP IS OPTIONAL - BUT CAN HAVE IT'S PRIVILEGES!

Membership provides discounts at local retailers through a membership card system.

There are two options:
1. $5.00 to Steve Larkin in Kanata. This entitles you to the cards
2. Prepay 3 weeks for the Legion (3 X $2.50 = $7.50)**. This entitles you to the cards and provides three weeks of dues to the Legion.
**Looks like it is still $7.50.

Recommendations are as follows:
If you are going to play at the Legion at least twice, I would do the prepay.
However, if you are in the west end and do not plan to go to the Legion, I would just pay the $5.00 to Steve at KGG.
Steve goes by srlarkin on BGG.

Just geekmail or ask at a session if you are interested in the membership discount cards.

Have not actually played this, but seeing as a large chunk of my family and friends are Catan-a-holics, I've been goading them to see if they wanna pay the 200$ for this one: Settlers of Zarahemla. Especially with the King Noah expansion card!!! Personally the craziest one I have played is the MegaMan knockoff one my buddy brought back from South Korea. Still my eyes hurt from that board. Yet somehow need to check out the upcoming Star Trek one... Oh and if anyone has ever played the NON-modular board one call Lords of Cannabis? Cause I played it with my mom, sister and her partner (who was the one who got if for X-mas), and boy is it bad! Grow ops instead of settlements and tunnels instead of roads on a rectangular board! I'll see if I can borrow any of these just to show off cause they are so bad.

SPEAKING of RISK....
I picked up a copy of RISK: Metal Gear Solid Collector's Edition yesterday. If anyone's keen to play my recently unboxed game, lemme know!

If you've ever played RISK: Factions on a gaming console, it's pretty much the same style, except set in the Metal Gear universe with a bord that's somewhat mildly distracting.

My only question is that if I continually roll 1's all night, am I allowed to yell out "Snaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaake!!!!".

Anyone else feel like shooting up some Gekkos, taking on the Beauty and the Best Squad, or nailing it to Liquid Ocelot?!

I've seen the settlers of Cannabis.
I will say that the board setup idea (to get around copyright) was pretty neat.
