Monash Boardgames Society
Recommences on Monday 5th of March!

MBS meets every Monday from 6.00pm until 11.00pm at Monash Clayton. Room ST1, which is in building 25 (See map below).

We love all games - these all make regular appearances:
Power Grid, Dominion, Carcassonne, Magic: The Gathering, Shadows over Camelot, Race for the Galaxy and Nexus Ops. Not to forget Chicago Express, Stephenson's Rocket, Aquädukt, Endeavor Cosmic Encounter and (of course) Catan.

It is free to attend, and everyone is welcome.

Please bring any games you wish to play, we would love to see you. New members, students and staff, casual visitors and curious passers-by are welcome to drop in.

If everyone is playing when you arrive, ask for Zac or Matt.

The room is brightly lit, with comfortable chairs and plenty of tables.
It is quite OK to eat dinner in the room, although don't spill on the games please



indigo We want more current Monash students to join up! indigo
MBS has started buying a library of games, and the more student members, the bigger our budget.

How to find us:
Clayton Campus is located on Wellington Rd, near the intersection with Dandenong Rd. Melway page 70, F12.

Arriving at the main entrance (green circle), drive straight at the first roundabout and continue for 250m. On your left you will pass Robert Blackwood Hall, then there is a carpark.
Turn left into Union Loop Rd. Continue for 100m: turn right at the T-intersection, where Union Loop Rd curves around a gravel carpark. There are parking spaces on your left- this is the best spot to park (red circle).
Take the path between the Engineering building (60) and the IT building (63). After 50m there is a side path off to the left, heading towards the Campus Centre ("Union Building", 10). This path goes past the doors of Building 25 (yellow circle).
If you get lost, ask anyone for directions: Monash can be a maze and everyone understands how confusing it can be!

Parking:
Free parking is available in all the Red marked parking areas after 4pm.

So there you go! We hope to see you soon.

Yes, absolutely! We meet on Monday evenings on the third floor of the Menzies Building - there is a sign near the lifts (elevators).

On Saturday 13 March the club is having a games day in the basement of the Law Library, starting at noon and finishing at about 6pm. Please come and join us meeple

Are old people welcome? Or is it purely the hip student crowd?

What games are hitting the table of late?
Any interest in Ghost Stories or other co-ops?

If I bring Heroscape with I be beaten up?

Hi Sheldon,

Certainly you'd be welcome - it's mostly a young crowd, but I'm 42...

Ghost Stories should be quite popular; there's a regular group that play Shadows over Camelot. Not sure about Heroscape, but I think you'll find players without any problem.

There are frequent games of Stephenson's Rocket, Small World, Power Grid, Stone Age and Mystery of the Abbey. Magic: The Gathering, Dominion and Race for the Galaxy get regular play as fillers.

Off the top of my head, all the following have also been played at least twice this year: Nexus Ops, Vikings, Chicago Express, Amun-Re, Hive, Carcassonne (etc), Masters Gallery, Oasis and Torres. So it's a pretty broad selection. Most members are eurogamers, but there are a few "generalists" like me and one or two who prefer 'trash.

Drop me a GM if you'd like to join us - Monash is in mid-term break, so I need to check if the club is using the same room, and when we restart.

Cheers,

-R

EDIT: Updated the venue info on the original post! I still need to check when we start meeting again.

EDIT 2: Monash Boardgames Society hopes to restart on Monday 26th July, venue is still to be determined. Watch this space

The Prez emailed on the 17th: he was trying to book a regular room from Monday 26th onwards. No updates so far, but experience tells me:
(a) they will get a venue, but
(b) it could be somewhere else on campus, and
(c) we may not know until the last minute.
This is Monash Uni's Facilities Office doing the work it is famed for.
Last time they switched rooms on us we left directions at the old location - we lost about 20 minutes, so no huge drama.

I will edit the original post as soon as I get details.

Just FYI, passing the info along...

Latest news is that there is still a problem with getting a room, so Monday 3 August is looking doubtful. Possible we will change to Tuesday nights if this continues.

As always: stay tuned.

Hooray! We have a room!

Building 60, room EH4.
Building 60 is the 'Engineering Hall'. It is adjacent to Union Loop
road, and is north-north-east of the Campus Centre.

The room has ample tablespace, as these rooms are often used as exam
halls during the exam period.

EDIT: Still meeting on MONDAY nights, too!

I have it on the table 2m behind me
It is, however, unopened and unplayed. That could be remedied.

I am waiting for details to be confirmed for 2011 - venue, days etc could change, depending on the whims of the facilities office. I'll update the original post once I have details. Otherwise there's always Eurogamesfest or Billabong Boardgamers in the interim.

Hi, I was just wondering if you guys have a Facebook page. The link on the MSA website seems to be broken when I click 'find us on facebook'.

I look forward to attending once I get back from Malaysia Sunway.
