    Having discovered at Malvern that some of us are board game geeks, anyone up for a late autumn/early winter meet? :Smile:

    I think that would be fabulous, although my brain hasn't had a workout since I left work and that Africa game you were playing looked liked it would take a bit of practice to become proficient at. For those of a simpler ability, Rumikubs is quite fun. :BigGrin:

    Not really. The rules are few and simple, but you have to keep your mind open to possibilities and be prepared to adapt according to which tiles become available. :Smile:

    Just testing the water at the moment but maybe Oct/Nov. West Midlands would probably be a fairly central location, but it depends on who wants to go really. :Smile:

    What's this game Maz, and what other board games are you proposing?

    That game was '10 Days in Africa' - you have to plan a 10-day itinerary around Africa following a few simple rules but be prepared to be adaptable with your route. :BigGrin: It's an easy game to learn and each game doesn't take long to play.

    Other board games would depend on what Funsters have themselves and what they might like to learn to play. I was recently taught to play Rummikub which I enjoy a lot. Other than that I tend towards what are usually known as modern 'Euro-style' or 'German' games, such as 'Ticket To Ride', 'Settlers of Catan'. I have a few games tucked away in my lockers that I haven't even played yet - including a strategy game called 'Through The Desert' that involves masses of plastic camels!

    Then there's 'Forbidden Island' which I introduced a couple of Funsters to at Malvern. In that one you have to work as a team to collect treasures and escape from the island before it disappears beneath the waves. :BigGrin:

    Monopoly not one of my favourites but if we get enough interest there can be several different games being played at the same time. :BigGrin:

    Hi Maz.

    I could be interested depending when and where. :thumb:

    Haven't played board games for years as Tim is into them at all :Sad:

    How about Mahjong?
