This half-yearly event is back, this time at a new location, the Moon Under Water pub, Victoria.

May 26th, starting at 11.30am. Bring Games, play them, have a drink while doing so. Easy, casual games day. Tickets cost $8, which gets you in and a $5 voucher for the bar.

Please ask me for further details. Tickets available in advance through me, or a couple of other sources.


Details available on facbook as well : https://www.facebook.com/boardgamersofday

Hooray, Chris! I bought tickets #4 and #5 a couple weeks ago and you'll see me there. Thanks again for setting this up. I trust "bar" will include food, with the kitchen being open?

Sounds intriguing if my work schedule allows it!

Is this intended as a Eurogamey type day, or will there be room for Ameritrash/gateway Wargames?

The kitchen is open for their normal food menu.

Tickets are through me, Interactivity or the QVs Monday night group. I can get tickets out to other people as necessary, drop my a message.

Games are whatever game you want to bring. There is no schedule, pre-sign up, events list, or guests of honour. If everyone brings Ameri-trash, it'll be Ameritrash. In the past its been a mix of Euro's, lighter pick up silly games and one or two serious heavier games. I wouldn't recommend a huge sprawling 2 player war game that takes up 15 tables though...

I personally would love to get in a session of a multiplayer type sci fi/horror/fantasy game if there is interest.

As for big maps, no worries, although I must admit I saw the guys set up and play this one in Seattle: http://boardgamegeek.com/image/1563863/it-never-snows,
very impressive.

Table was even built up to standing height so no aching backs!

You can get tickets at Interactivity games, just off the corner of Fort and Douglas street.

If you guys are OK with playing BSG with the expansions, I and/or my boyfriend can teach it.

I say with the expansions because it'd be a pain to separate all the cards. Alternatively, if someone brings a copy of the base game only, I can teach that too.

Tickets are now almost sold out. I don't have any on me now. I have to connect with Interactivity but he was down to two or three last I checked.

Please let me know directly if you need a ticket. There will not be any for sale on the door.

EDIT : The event is officially sold out. Thanks for all your support, look forward to see you all in 4 weeks!

Would there be any interest in a math trade with the DOBG? We may be able to move a couple things in a group this size...
next question is would anyone with experience be willing to run it?

As I've never understood math trades or how to participate in them, I'd pass on it. I would, however, be interested in straight up trading there. As opposed to bringing my complete collection, perhaps a list of games for trade / wants could be created and we could sort out trading details on the day of?

That, or a math trade if someone is gracious enough to teach me how. :D

If only it were possible to make a GeekList of DoB III attendees, we'd be able to see who's coming and what might be in their closets at home.

In any case, anyone's welcome to click on my profile to learn what I want to acquire, the few items I want to part with, and what I'm really wanting to play.

Something I thought I would also mention is that I place orders from amazon.de fairly regularly, so if there's something available there that you're not able to find somewhere else, I'd be happy to order it for you. We'll just share costs, I don't make any money on it.

I consider myself to be in the same camp as Tim; I want to do a Math trade but it sounds a tad intimidating/confusing.

Alternately, I could start a trades geeklist for those who are interested.

Hey, I might be able to come last minute, so if anyone who has a ticket wants to unload it closer to the event, let me know.

You're the man, Jordan!

I'm in the Minneapolis airport on a five hour layover for my Amsterdam flight with nothing to do. Now I can set up my trades. Thanks, buddy!
