In recent years I've really gotten into my "Euro Games". Games like Carcassonne and Catan were really what introduced me to how good board games are now-a-days, and I enjoy both the simple and complex range available. I usually struggle to get 3 or 4 players that are free and keen to play, and as such thought I'd post this in the hope of finding like-minded individuals happy to get together for some casual gaming.

Here is my collection thus far... I think this really shows what games I enjoy, but I'm always on the look-out for discovering new Euro games:

If interested, or just wanna say hello, please post here or inbox me.

For the record, games played so far...

Merchants and Marauders
Dixit
Alien Frontiers
King of Tokyo
Dominion
A Game of Thrones
Aquire
Battlestar Galatica
Kingdom Builder
Kingdoms
Formula D

And tomorrow night, a blast from the past... Warhammer Quest.
Maybe Smash Up and the new expansion to King of Tokyo if we're still kicking... which we usually are!

p.s. Mt Gambier is only a casual 5 hour drive away. I've driven further for a coffee!

Hehe...even further when you live on the other side of Adelaide, like me I'll take you up on that if ever I'm around MG.

Apologies.. I feel like a sad necro doing this but I could not believe my eyes as I (for once) checked out the SA sub forum. Board gamers.. in the Mount?!

It cannot be! Funnily, my wife and I kept saying we needed to put up notes somewhere to LF board gamers since I have a growing collection of board/card/dice/rpg games yet only the 2-3 of us to play..

Just wanted to pipe up about how the weekend went with Power Grid. Aside from learning the rules, once we almost hit Phase 2 or once we did hit it, Tmara and I knew what we were doing and did actually enjoy it quite a lot

We're definitely looking forward to more gaming in the future

It was a pleasure to meet you lot

Also, once we get a heater for our gaming room, we'd be happy to host a night at our place sometime as well.

Excellent to see another notice the thread! Infact, in the last month, we created a guild here to have a place to try and organise gaming in advance.

Gambier Gamers

I need to get around to posting more pictures infact since Marrra and I played Alien Frontiers for the first time with John and Trish. Much fun that was! For once I enjoyed watching others win and seeing the bitching flow around the table

I also need to pull my finger out and get into a regular set of sessions of X-Wing with John and others (if anyone else plays, like Andy played with John's minis).
