Hello to everyone.

I just found this forum while doing a Google search. I live in Ottawa and although I'm out of practice I am looking for a gaming group to play A&A or it's various sequels.

Is there a regular group in Ottawa?

Any info would be helpful.

Thanks

See this thread:

http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/432417


There's a biweekly board game group that meets at the Legion in Westboro every second Wednesday (including today). Two sessions ago, they played Axis and Allies (and as you can see from that post, it used to be a staple game for that group - circa a decade ago).

I don't know of many groups that regularly meet up to play A&A, though... more like groups that meet up to play a variety of games, and A&A might hit the table once or twice a year. But looks like Adam and John are thirsting for more A&A (Pacific, specifically).

There are several. There's a BGG Guild for two of them: Ottawa Tuesday/Wednesday Gamers. At the Wednesday group, which is meeting tonight at the Legion in Westboro (see guild page for details), you'll be more likely to find some folks who'll be interested in playing A&A. I know N/A is a fan.

Cheers,
Sean

TONIGHT!!!

the games group meets every other Wednesday.
See post for Ottawa Games Group.

Bring whichever A&A you prefer.
You'll either find a taker or can get into one of the other games played.

Hey Don,

Did you get your A&A fix at Wednesday gaming? I am also an old A&A player looking to get back into it, but my young kids keep my schedule to playing after 8PM and the guys in my gaming club seem hooked on Settlers of Catan and Small World. I am dying to get some A&A in, especially since I picked-up the anniversary edition. Maybe there are some other gamers out there with an A&A itch? If you are interested in a game, let me know.

Cheers

I would J.F., but by the time I got the kids to bed and went over there, it would be 8:30-9:00pm. I think you guys wrap-up around 10:30, so there would hardly be any time to get any real action in. It would have to be a 8:30pm to just past midnight thing to work for me. Otherwise I would be a Wednesday regular.

Cheers

If you still check this... I just moved here, I used to play lots back in SK, looking to do the same here on a weekly, or bi-weekly, or monthly basis. I've got Euroipe 1940, but i've played most versions. Hit me up you or anybody who reads this, I want to play! Getting rusty!!

Hey man! I just moved into Ottawa as well and I'm a huge A&A fan, I'm 19 and I've been playing for a few years now. If you or anyone else reading this is itching for a match, I'm always down for a friendly round or two! I've got some of the land and naval miniatures, as well as:
-Europe 1940
-Pacific 1940
-50th Anniversary Edition
-D-Day
-Battle of the Bulge
-Guadalcanal
-Europe (original)
-Pacific (original)

Huge fan just signed on to join this conversation. Live East end of Ottawa and would be interested in trying to get a game going - travel no prob. Huge fan of A vs A. Have anniversary, Pacific, Europe, D Day as far as I recall. Would be very interested in getting together for a game over a few drinks with some like minded gamers. Have a quirky schedule but would try to be accommodating if we could get a few ppl together. Let me know.

Hi, I just joined BGG. I'm also looking to play Axis & Allies in the Ottawa area. I have Spring 1942, Pacific 1940, and Europe 1940 as well as a variety of supplemental game pieces. It would be great to get a regular group together. We could start small with a few shorter games of Spring 1942 and then work our way up to a grand campaign of 1940 Global.

Sounds good to me! I live in the East end as well and can travel by bus, most Fridays and weekends should be good for me, depending on my homework (I'm in first year university ) and possibly even the odd weekday! Mondays and Thursdays will be tricky though.

Re: Looking for Axis and Allies in Ottawa, ON
First Ottawa Axis & Allies meet-up was a good one. Thanks to Jay for hosting. Nice meeting Scott and Alex. See you soon for a rematch!

Cheers,
Andrew

Anyone looking to join our Saturday night Axis & Allies group can leave me a message. We are 5 guys so far who play just about any version of A&A. This week it was Anniversary Edition.

You're going to have a tough time finding them. For the land units,t he last time I bought some was in 2010 and that was difficult. Most places stopped carrying them or were clearing them out.

It seemed as if WotC was ending support for the line/new products and were pumping out more of their new naval battle ones and were prepping for the air combat line as well.

Like I said, in 2010 they were a bit tough to come by.

If you're interested (considering I haven't bloody well played my copy yet!) I might be willing to part with them.

Nobody plays that. AAM is not Axis and Allies. They just stole the name for branding purposes. Just play the boardgames.

Don't think that really solves his problem or welcomes him to the medium.

Edit: Sorry if that sounds harsh, but this guy's new and probably really enthusiastic about his new game is all. Let's not kill it for him.
