I see FFG have released news of a BattleLore Army Box. Only Goblins at this stage but a step in the right direction. It also includes cards for Call to Arms.

http://new.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_news.asp?eidn=1201

If this keeps up we might have to have a regular BattleLore slot.

I bags any undead/chaos/beast type armies.zombie

Cheers
John

On the Game Club thread I read the Uni SAGA club are having a MiniCon run over the weekend of 10-11 April..

http://www.saga.org.nz/minicon-2010

$5 to join SAGA and $5 for the weekend con.

10th is the start of the League season but that evening and/or Sunday could be a go.

Might be a good chance to get those long games in we never have time for.

Cheers
John

I'm, I'm afraid there's been a mistake. The man who has been speaking to you is an impostor. He is not in fact the Bishop of East Anglia, but a man wanted by the police. I am the Bishop of East Anglia and anyone who doesn't believe me can look me up

They also run a FB group, which I joined. I'll make a decision whether to go a bit closer to the time.

Not sure how/if I missed this thread before, I was looking around for gaming groups in Christchurch some time last year..

Anyway, me and my wife play a variety of board games, from stuff like Tantrix and Polago to Carcassonne and (to a lesser extent due to number of players/wife's interest) Catan.

We'd be interested in meeting up/coming along to a gaming night if that's ok, we don't know many people into gaming and it'd be cool to see/play some different games.

I'd suggest sending a Geekmail to Jason Brice - he can then contact you and give you details etc. He holds a gaming night pretty much every Wednesday.

Yes - talk to Jason and if you check your geekmail you'll see I've invited you to a once a month gaming gig at my place.

(anyone interested just geekmail me)

Hi

I'll be travelling in NZ for 2 weeks and will be in Christchurch 1st-5th May during that time. Would like to meet for a game or two if possible. I can meet during the day but will have a fairly disruptive 1 yr old with me, or meet at night when I can let his Mum look after him insead.

Regards

Donal

Hi Donal - no doubt the Christchurch faithful will be keen to have you over! thumbsup

Are you planning to visit the North Island during your travels, too?

Christchurch :)

What suburb are you in, if you are still doing your meetings? It's either that or SAGA, but I haven't decided which might be best to dip my toes in. At the moment the only board game my partner and I have played(to death) is Catan (for the win!)

Yes, we're on every Wednesday at 7PM. We're in Papanui (I'll PM you the exact address). Our group ranges from 20s through to 50s, and is very social, but competitive at the same time.

Hi there,

I'm in Christchurch and would be keen to come along some time. It sounds a lot easier than convincing my wife to play!

I can only really get my friends to play Settlers, and would probably get looks of horror if I ever brought Starcraft out of the wardrobe... so very keen for some board-game geekery.

Cheers,

Dan

Hi Daniel,

I'm just about to send you a private message with details. We're gaming tonight, so let me know if you can make it.

Thanks,
Jason
