Blimey! Guess who's coming to Beyond Monopoly! this Saturday. Apart from you of course. And me. And twenty other gamers at least. Go on, guess! GUESS!

Can't guess?
TRY HARDER!!!

Okay, I'll tell. BBC Radio York will be visiting us to have a butchers and tape some interviews. So practise your soundbites on why Beyond Monopoly! is just the most fab thing that ever happened in York on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays each month. And bring somebody new to gaming. Or someone old.

Check out our thread:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/57583
or our wiki for more details:
http://bmyork.pbwiki.com/

Beyond Monopoly! is York's best gameclub, open 10.30am to 5.30pm at Guppys on Nunnery Lane. It's just a short walk from the railway station, and we get plenty of gamers from all around. You'll be very welcome, especially if you are new to german games.

We've got our dates sorted for the first quarter too, so BM! will complete a year of gaming.

Cheers,
Jon.

That's weird. This bit used to mention Shire Games, and tell you all how wonderful we are. But it seems to have got deleted. Let's see what happens this time ....

Good luck with that Jon .... let's hope it brings you a load of new members.

We were on BBC Radio Stoke when we opened in June, which was a quick 5 minutes about the shop.

Coincidentally, we were all in the pub last night and this bloke came over from BBC TV Staffordshire (apparently local TV is going to do 10 minutes every hour on BBC "via the interactive button on your digital TV!") and he was interested on doing an article about our club.

Is Radio York on the web ?

Nick.

Hi Jon,

I will do my best to attend. I'm afraid that moving house and settling in has taken priority over the past couple of weeks!

All the best

Dave

P.S. I'm planning to have a sore throat and lose my voice that day.

Do you know which show it was on? had a look and it only has a couple of shows that you can replay.

... looked some more. was it on the "Sat - 1200 - Gunny's Game show with Les Gunn"?

Re: BBC Radio York at Beyond Monopoly! THIS SATURDAY 19th No
Hello Tristan,
It wasn't live, it was a taped interview at the club. We should be going out in a week or so, I think on the Jerry Scott show in the afternoon.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/england/radioyork/presenters/jerry.shtm...

The woman who came to see us was Joanita Musisi, and she was very impressed. I talked to her about the club and german games, the usual spiel, and examples of popular games, good for Xmas that sort of thing. We got her to play Niagara for a bit, but then she had to go on to another appointment. But she wasn't expecting it to be so lively and sociable, lots of noise, so there should be a good atmosphere. I'm hoping it will be a great report and she did say that she would come back with her friends.

I should be warned when it goes out, so a chance for lots of taping please.

Hey, that was my Niagara! I'll be famous! Not that I was actually playing it, but still...

I wish I had noticed this thread beforehand, I might not have wondered why that lady was poking a microphone in our direction, and why Cal suddenly seemed to launch into a pre-scripted speech... (Actually, he was very good; I expect he will be in the final edit, and so on).

Re: BBC Radio York at Beyond Monopoly! THIS SATURDAY 19th No
Good choice of game for the purpose, I thought. (At least, I hope so: I bought it to play with non-gamers! Haven't done so yet)

Just checked through my collection of comedy JP emails and I don't seem to have received that one. They were an entertaining re-read, though

Heard anything about the broadcast yet?
