International Table Top Day 2014

As many of you already know, International Table Top day is set as the 5th of April this year. We have requested use of the Royal British Legion hall for this date and, whilst we await confirmation, we want to start planning what we will be doing this year.

This comes down to you guys & gals; the members. The council is here to enable you to do what you want, so tell us what that is! It could be running card games, board games or wargames. What participation and demo games would you like to run? We probably won't have space for tournaments unless they are very small and the aim of the day is to try new games and share your love of old ones!

Entry cost is yet to be confirmed and times are likely to be 10am-6pm, though that will also need to be confirmed. Book the time off now!

Firefly the boardgame would be cool, also something Lovecraftian but not too long.

 

I think our theme should be 'short games' something that takes 2 hours to play at most.

Should be free and I could run a Zombicide campaign where you carry over skills and equipment from previous games

Why free? I'm not against that at all, but would like to know the reasoning. The club will certainly be subsidising, but not sure what percentage.

I can't remember how much it is to rent the hall for the day. Once we know that, and it may have changed, we can figure costs out.

OK everyone, the date is confirmed.

It may be easiest if we start with the regular board games night format and go from there.

I'll bring along Relic, Elder Sign + Unseen Forces, Munchkin Fu and Moby Dick, or the Card Game.

I'm also thinking I'll bring along Bushido and Eden, as they are great small skirmish games.

I'd like to be able to offer prizes over the course of the day. Need to have a think on that.

 

Let's hear what you'd like to bring and what you'd like to do.

Want to run a demo of your favourite game? Maybe a mini tournament or a single large game? Post your ideas here!

Not sure how to confirm on the website that I'm going? Anyway as I said I'll be there with Zombicide and if there's enough interest maybe I'll do a campaign :)

There will probably be about 10+ of us from POB comming along so if there are any games that people want to try let us know. We have quite a large collection between the members.

I will probably have one of my boys in tow who would love to try a quick and easy minatures game.

Thanks
Rob

Great! We're still working on what we'll be running but I'm sure there will be a couple of things for him to try!

2 blasts from the past:

 

How about a Blood Bowl cup tournament?  Say about 8 teams max.

4 games playing at the same time.  Timed turns.  

8 fresh new teams playing 4 games each with the winner having the most points.  eg.. 3pts win. 1pt draw. 0 for lose.

If two teams have same winning points then an extra grudge match can decide the cup winner.

 

OR Mordheim tournament?  About 4-6 gangs/war groups.  Again several games can play at the same time and then swap tables/missions.

Would you be interested in running one? I'd say Blood Bowl is the better option, though open games of starter teams would be best so newcomers could try the game out.

We need club members to run the games/tournaments. I know Gary will be running Zombicide.

Only popping in? Would be great if you did. If you are working though, don't worry about running a game unless you want to.

I'm tempted to run some starter Blood Bowl games on the day.I was thinking Humans vs Orcs and Wood Elves vs Dwarves over two tables.

 

I think I need to wait a week to check i'm free on the day, but it should be fine.

Great! 9am onwards matey. I'll be bringing a few things. I'll most likely start off running Moby Dick as it is unusual and I don't think anyone else has it.
