Games in a Pub - 21st August 2011

People find us by accident but stay and have a lot of fun
Hey! That's my fish - The players of this simple but fun game

Another good turn out and a number of new games played. But first let me mention our new gamers Sophie and her friends.

Quixo - Naughts and crosses / connect 5We have been trying for months now to entice some of the Blue Anchor Quiz Night attendees to join us on the alternate Sundays from the Quiz. Until last Sunday we had had no luck, in spite of Damian (the landlord) making regular announcements at the quiz evenings and having posters up around the pub. Our logic was that people that like coming out on a Sunday to play a quiz with friends might equally enjoy playing games with those same friends after all isn’t a quiz a game? Well this Sunday we finally got lucky and
Sophie and her friends turned up for the quiz night! Luckily for us they got the wrong night, but they spent the next 2 ½ hours playing all manner of games and by the noise coming from their table having a great time. They played three very different games (Hey! That’s My Fish, Pit and Braggart) but it was the last game, Braggart, with its theme of drunken adventurers boasting and being called liar’s by their fellow revellers that was their favourite of the evening.

Quoridor - Just after Malcolm declined our offer of conceeding defeat  - a mistake!

In other parts of the pub very different games where being played with on this occasion two of the wooden French Gigamax range(Quoridor and Quixo) getting an outing as well as the very attractive Seeland, a game about the reclamation of the Dutch wetlands.
Seeland - The players

Two of the groups present later came together for a game of Saboteur followed by Pit.

All in all a lot of fun and the largest group yet. Fingers crossed that we can continue to build the numbers at our next event. More photo's from the evening can be seen here.

The next event is at the Blue Anchor on Sunday 4th September 2011 anytime after 7pm - £1 per head, further details can be found on our Facebook page here.
