The site for information about Headingley Games Club Leeds
Some new terrain being used last Thursday as the interest in this games system continues to grow at the Headingley Games Club.
Dave at our club says “Away with you Agricola. Leave now Le Havre. Push off Puerto Rico. There’s a new worker placement/resource management game in town (actually a few years older than some of the above), its name is Caylus, and it’s really rather good.” This game is attracting more enthusiasts each week but it was published in 2005, Boardgamegeek says
Once upon a time …
1289. To strengthen the borders of the Kingdom of France, King Philip the Fair decided to have a new castle built. For the time being, Caylus is but a humble village, but soon, workers and craftsmen will be flocking by the cartload, attracted by the great prospects. Around the building site, a city is slowly rising up.
The players embody master builders. By building the King’s castle and developing the city around it, they earn prestige points and gain the King’s favor. When the castle is finished, the player who has earned the most prestige wins the game. The expansion Caylus Expansion: The Jewellerwas included in the 2nd Edition. It all looks very exciting:
London on Board-If you are in the big smoke it looks like a worthwhile visit. London on Board. You can find details on:
London on Board is a board game club that meets a couple of times a week in central London to play board and card games.
We’re a mixed bag of game players. Some of us have been playing board games for aaaaaages, some of us have only just begun to discover the wealth of board games out there. Some of us prefer Euros, others are more interested in the American style, dripping with theme board games. Some of us like abstracts. Some of us just like everything. All of us like to play games and just having a good time. We live all over London have been gathering players from all over Europe and beyond! They seem to meet 3 0r 4 times a week.
DBMM-De Bellis Magistrorum Militus 15mm Patrician Romans poncing about before collapsing – back to the drawing board. The armies in the Patrician Roman list cover the period from the rise to power of Aetius as Patrician in the West to the overthrow of the Italian Kingdom of the general Odoacer by the Ostrogoths in the West and the accession of Zeno in the East
Last Thursday’s game of DBMM was about to end for the Romans. We still have a substantial team of 15mm ancients players who follow the family of games of De Bellis Magistrorum Militus or DBMM II. It all started long ago with the brilliant De Bellis Antiquitatis (DBA) Ancients Wargame Rules 1.1 and then came the evolution……of Wargames of ancient battles 3000BC to 1550 AD. Dacians with Sarmatian allies march out against another army…lots of light horse
