London on Board-If you are in the big smoke it looks like a worthwhile visit. London on Board. You can find details on: http://www.londononboard.com/.
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
Another game is being readied for play at the Headingley Games Club. It’s ZOMBICIDE. Come and join the destruction of the living Dead at the club. No! Not the club members; the little plastic models in the game. Boardgamegeek review says
Zombicide is a collaborative game in which players take the role of a survivor – each with unique abilities – and harness both their skills and the power of teamwork against the hordes of unthinking undead! Zombies are predictable, stupid but deadly, controlled by simple rules and a deck of cards. Unfortunately for you, there are a LOT more zombies than you have bullets.
Find weapons, kill zombies. The more zombies you kill, the more skilled you get; the more skilled you get, the more zombies appear. The only way out is zombicide!
Play ten scenarios on different maps made from the included modular map tiles, download new scenarios from the designer’s website, or create your own! Matthew has bought the full set of toys so get ready for Zombie hunting.
Carcassonne was played last week. One of the most popular games Carcassonne attract a wide following. It is a simple system but an interplay that creates a complex range of strategies and game play. It is one the most popular selling games of the last decade. It’s good for family games, hardened gamers and club games. Boardgamegeek reviews it well. It has many upgrades and can even be downloaded as an ap’ or your phone or i pad .
