    I should be around for the one on the 29th December and I might know a few others that will be, but yeah, that weekend between Santa's birthday and Jool's hootenany-thingy is always a weird time where a lot of people disappear. They won't get cake!

    I've finally gotten set up in London. So I hear there's board games afoot. Should I bring Race for the Galaxy & Dominion?

    You should. Board gamers come couple of hours early (2? 3?). Also, welcome to Dunwall.

    Oh no! Turns out I can't make this month's.

    Who else am I going to be able to engage in conversation about Hotline Miami? I can't just approach people on the bus and talk about midnight Miami murder, or can I?

    I'm going to be in the UK Thur-Mon this week/next, will anything be happening, I'm not often in the northern hemisphere and it seems I would be silly not to jump at this opportunity =)

    @2ds: Not a regular Social Club meet-up; that's scheduled for Saturday 27th, but SOMETHING is indeed happening!


    ATTENTION: GSL Finals BrunchCraft & DreamHack Barcraft

    The RPS Social Club (that's you, if you're reading this and want to come along) has been invited by LondonBarcraft to join their GSL Finals BrunchCraft & DreamHack Barcraft event this Saturday.

    It takes place at The Assembly House, NW5 2TG on the 20th of October and starts at 9am in the morning. Entry is free (their events are non-profit); all they ask is that attendees behave nicely in the pub, so please don't run around smashing up furniture and buying beer for minors and stuff like that.



    Here's some more info from the organiser:
    Our next event is a bit different from what we generally do (following full tournaments on Sat/Sunday) but it is definitely worth it, we are going to watch the finals of the most renowned SC2 tournament in the world, the GSL which is held live in Seoul, Korea. That means the time-difference makes this not a Barcraft but a BrunchCraft :)

    We open at 9AM, I don't see the games starting before 10am and they generally last till 1PM - after that we will show some of the MLG vs Proleague VODs and play it by ear. We will organize free giveaways during the event and might attract some pro players willing to play some showmatches live for us, but this is yet to be confirmed.
    If you're on Facebook, feel free to RSVP so they can track attendance and prepare accordingly.




    About the tournaments:

    More info on the tournaments we will show. If you have to know one thing about Pro SC2: Koreans used to be kings. Things may change this season.

    - MLG vs Proleague: The World vs Korea league / showmatches. http://wiki.teamliquid.net/starcraft...e_Invitational

    It's fairly sure that I'll be in the London area next weekend. So I'll most likely be there!

    Oooh - it's this Saturday, yay! And it's nearly Halloween. May have to bring treats. Or tricks. Or witches. Or burn some guy... (no hang on, think that's the week after) :D

    I think about 4ish. If I'm wrong someone will correct me, but if I'm right I shall be there about that time with games of some ilk.

    If you're a noob at most boardgames but have somewhat of an interest in trying it out, would I be able to do that without reading a 100 page manual the night before?

    Well I don't think the pub is the best place to play big, deep, epic games. That is what putting food in a slow cooker on a Sunday and having everyone over is for. I like things that take less than five minutes to explain and have rulebooks that are less like books and more like pamphlets.

    That's pretty much how it went last time. I mean the non-cooker part of your comment : )

    But slow cookers are excellent! Damn now I'm hungry.

    I think I'll be bringing Infiltration, Libertalia and possibly Yomi as they are all speedy and easy to explain games, also give a nice range of games that are perfect for 2-6 players.

    I may have got my wires crossed here but who is going to bring the slow cooker to the Blue Posts tomorrow?
    I have a new book out. Fancy some cynical fantasy comedy? Check it out:

    This is a FORUM HIJACK.

    Stense, I once asked you if you wanted a Dota2 key and forgot to give it to you. Do you still need it?

    I better answer before the hijack is detected and the authorities descend upon you.

    Thanks Alex but I got a beta key. Cheers for the offer though. You going tomorrow?

    Is anyone bringing board games? Who is bringing board games? What games are you bringing?
    I am wavering.
