Hey folks - just a heads up that there's plans afoot to hold a regular games session in the middle of Milton Keynes every fortnight at the large Waterstones in Midsummer Place. Looks like it'll run fortnightly on Fridays to begin with, taking place between 5-8pm. Aside from that, there's not a huge amount of details yet, but if you're at all interested let me know here or via email - you can get me on michael@littlemetaldog.com

Let the games begin!

Good on Waterstones for agreeing to it. I know they're very gamer-friendly (I bought Kings of Tokyo from there), but going out of their way to host a gaming session is a big step forward between gamers and the High Street. One which The Works notably failed to make.

Aye, it's good, isn't it?

I went in a few weeks ago to suggest it after seeing their range of games getting pretty impressive. Turns out one of the guys there had the same idea! I'll be running it along with him, so we'll see how it goes

Good luck with the new club.

Hopefully it will encourage Waterstone's to develop their games section further. I chatted to one of their buyers at the Nuremberg Toy Fair and they told me the range of games in their shops is very much dependent on the individual store manager. One reason why it varies so much from store to store.

Even this, I like. Think I might throw in a speculative application for any future vacancies.

I am fairly sure I will come, and that I will bring at least one 9 year old daughter with me. Is this a "bring your own games" evening?

Ok definitely coming with at least one 9 year-old. I'll bring some games the little geeks know, just in case everyone else wants to play Caylus...
