Board games night meet up

196 posts in this topic

Only thing I've been unable to find in this city is a group of people willing to meet up some night in a bar/ someone's house to while away the hours playing board games the likes of Pandemic, Dominion, Dixit, etc.

I'm not expecting a dungeons and dragons style marathon that lasts days and requires you to grow a beard but some lighter games that last up to 90 min or so. (I find that when drink and good company are present, this "expected play time" multiples by three)

I've already been a bit eager and bought a German version of Dominion in the hope that I will learn some german along the way:-)

Germany is the Mecca for board games, or so I've been told.

Anyone interested?

Have another person interested (goes by the name of R) AND he has games like Settlers of Catan, dominion, etc in English.

Only need another 1-2 people for a good session, but if there are more then we can split into more tables.

I'm pretty new to board games (have yet to play settlers of catan even!!!) so don't be afraid if you have no experience as it's really just a backdrop for socialising +/- drinking. These board game nights rarely result in injury other than pride;-)

Keep those posts/ PMs coming.

Or if anyone knows any Germans who would be interested please bring 'em along. (need help with my german Dominion)

If you are interested in board games in German, there are many "Spieltreffs" in Berlin. In which Bezirk do you live?

Neukôlln

Will have a look

Also wanted to organise games in other locations eg parks, in my WG, etc. This worked well back in Ireland

Thanks for suggestion:-)

Hey, Graham. That's a "she." Some of us are gamegeeks too, y'know. ;) Also have Dixit, Incan Gold, Forbidden Island (though I hate co-op games), various word games, and will eventually -- once we get all the boxes cleared out -- be able to host in Mitte.

Always wanted to play forbidden island, as I love co-op games. Favourite game is pandemic. Everyone shares victory or defeat. It's good for team-building;-)

Yes, I remember we had a few girls at games nights in Dublin too. Sorry for the slur.

So then there were 3.

Anyone else? Everyone welcome. Lots of games from which to choose. roll up, roll up, everyone's a winner.

I would love to join...but I am a complete novice. My friends and I used to play board games back home...but it was more along Cranium lines. If you guys wouldn't mind having to explain in the beginning, then count me in. :)

Wilkommen. Wilkommen

Now we have 4 people, many games and a location. All we need is a time and place.

Sooooo, sometime this week? I have no commitments but evenings probably best for everyone. What about Thursday night from 8pm? Or when do people suggest?

I can host (neukolln/ Kberg) if needed.

I've just registered in this forum to say that I'm interested!

I came from Spain a few days ago and I pretend to spend the next 3 months and a half in Berlin. I used to play boardgames with my friends back in Spain, and i think it would be great to keep this good habit here in Germany :) I don't consider myself an expert in boardgames, but an enthusiast. I love cooperative games, and in fact I'm a huge fan of Pandemic. You also mentioned Dixit, which I like a lot. Dominion is not one of my favorite games, but I don't mind playing it. Unfortunately, I had to leave behind a lot of games in Spain that I couldn't carry with me. Here in Berlin I've bought a travel version of Ubongo, which is very very very simple, because it had a very good price. But I'm afraid that's all I can contribute to the meet up :(

19:30 is maybe a little too early for me, but I could try to make an effort. As you probably had guessed, English is not my mother tongue, so probably if we met I would be sloppy sometimes (well, most of the time). But if you don't mind, I'll be willing to meet you!

Best regards!

Ok here's the deal!

R (aka awayatpost) has all the aforementioned games in English do gotta wait for her to agree to time and date before scheduling games night. So what about it awayatpost - when suits you best?

Seems like there is loads of interest approx 6-8. Enough for 2 tables already.

Game on (?!??!?)

Unfortunately, I probably won't be able to make it on Friday, as I'll be moving to my new flat. What a pity! :(

But, it's ok. Have a good time! I'll try to join you on the next meetup.

Whoa! Graham, we can host in the future, but emphatically not this week -- just moved in; there's crap everywhere. Your place at 19:30 works for us, though...

This is cool. Did not mean to be forward;-)

Meet up as follows:

19:30 Friday 9th September

Reuterstrasse 11 (Hermanzplatz or Rathaus Neukölln)

(Pope/Polzer - 2nd floor)

Awayatpost: could you bring a small diverse selection (maybe 2-3) of your collection?

I will provide tables, chairs, light and said German edition of Dominion.

BYOB

Who else interested in this event?
