Gavan and I are going to be getting together for some 2-player games (War of the Ring (first edition), 1989: Dawn of Freedom) at the Takatsuki City Exchange Center from 9:00 to 4:30.

We booked a pretty big room (one of the only ones available), so it may be a good chance if others have the day off and want to play some games.

Post here to see if anyone else is interested in gaming that day!

Ohhh...I'm free until 6:00 on the 24th... I'll try to come along. If for no other reason, I'd like to see WotR played again to get a better feel for the game.

Awesome Rob! Hopefully we can find one more person, and have two games running at the same time!

I'm off that day. Will have to verify with the wife but I think I'll be able to make it.

Great news Kristos! It will be great to get some simultaneous WotR/1989/Twilight Struggle/any other 2-player games going on.

If you guys could help split up the cost of the room too, that would be great. Should be less than 1,000, even cheaper if more people show up.

PS -- I can also rent out the room a little earlier, or a little later if preferable. It's 680 yen an hour, not bad when split up by 4 people or more.

I think I can come this day. (Having only cram school teaching at night.)

I'll bring Khet: The Laser Game as 2 player game.
And maybe Titan? (It can be played with up to 6 players but I believe it's best with 2 players)
Or I can bring my copy of Twilight Struggle.
Or Bios megafauna with 2 players is not a bad idea...

Good news Kohei! It might be a good idea to bring a game that can play with three people as well, just in case we have an odd number of members who show up.

I'll be there from noon. I'll bring some multi-player games that can be played with two-players. That way we'll have a little flexibility if we have an odd number of players.

The games I'm thinking of bringing are Mousquetaires du Roy (for Julien since I know he's been dying to play it), Yomi, and Galaxy Trucker.

It looks like we will have 7 or 8 people showing up next Tuesday!

Is the current time slot (10:30-5:30) OK, or should I extend it and/or start earlier?

I can't come until noon and I have to leave before dinner, so those times are good for me.

The times are fine for me too. For once, I won't be getting back home after dinner time.

It's good for me. I may be singing a different tune when I'm half way through a game at 5:28 though...

Will anyone else than Matt and Gavan be there at 9.00? I'd hate to wake up early and have to wait for an hour before starting a game.

I won't be there until noon. I hope you'll be free to play Mousquetaires du Roy at around that time.

I'm not planning on playing anything too long, so that should be OK.

Julien, I know for sure others will be arriving at 10, and I'm bringing a 3-player game along as well, so if you decide to come early, you will be able to play!

It was great fun indeed.

Games played (and I hope I don't forget anything):
the planned War of the Ring (first edition)
Volta
Don Q. und die Vermessung von La Mancha
Innovation
Yomi
Mousquetaires du Roy
Reef Encounter
and my last prototype.

Despite the catastrophic dice rolls, I enjoyed Mousquetaires du Roy. It's not the best game ever, but I wouldn't mind playing it again, if just to finally win (and roll something else than "fleurs de lys" yuk ).

Thanks Matt!
