After last year's success, I'm running another 14 hour friendly game-a-thon in Altona Meadows in the western suburbs of Melbourne.

Some friendly gaming, perhaps a couple of competitions, possibly a kick around with the Subbuteo soccer ball.

Hope to see you Westies and Melburnians there!

Date: Saturday 23 May 2015
From: 10 am - midnight
Location: Laverton Bowls Club, Hall Avenue, Altona Meadows
Cost: $5 (U14 kids free)

Take the Newlands Road exit from the Princes Freeway coming from the city of the High Stree exit from Werribee/Geelong.

By train: 10 min walk from Laverton station on the Werribee line.

With only four weeks notice, I felt it better to have Gaming in the Meadows as a one day mini-Con with a look at a full weekend next year. But I can promise 14 straight hours of gaming goodness!

The Laverton Lawn Bowls club rooms is bright, spacious and tidy. Plenty of off street parking available.

Drinks: We have a open bar (no BYO) with reasonably priced drinks available throughout the night. Tea and coffee will be available.

Food: Snacks available, but we also have the five basic food groups (KFC, McDonald's, Subway, Hungry Jacks, Red Rooster) a couple of minutes drive away. There's also a dozen other options, with many offering delivery. I'll have menus available on the day.

I had planned a few tournaments last year, but only Zombie Dice and Subbuteo got off the ground. Even then I had to drag people away from their games to play in the Zombie Dice final! Game trading was also a bit of a bust - people just wanted to keep on gaming!

Happy to leave it at friendly gaming unless anyone wants to organise and tournament or event?

Last year we had Melbourne Subbuteo Club play their monthly tournament and over a dozen players attended. We're planning to have another tournament from 2 - 6pm for those who want to either watch, participate or play a friendly game.

It's not really important to RSVP since I'm not selling tickets, but if you are a Meetup member, you can do so at http://www.meetup.com/Boardgames-group-party-and-strategy-ga...

GAMING IN THE MEADOWS FLEA MARKET

There will be a flea market from 10.15 - 10.45am (half an hour only!). Anyone can sell/trade their games. We'll have tables set up and ready to go. No limit to number of games you can sell or trade. Just make sure you have change with you and your games priced (a list or individually marked).

Door open at 10am so you'll have some time to set up.

I can organise to have games set up on one table for the remainder of the day, but it is your responsiblity to clearly mark your game with your name and price.

We'll have name badges, so people can find you.

We won't have a library of games on hand, so bring your own to play and/or borrow.

I was thinking of borrowing the Pax Library of games (as seen at BunnyCon) but that's a lot of work for one day of gaming.
