Game Discussion / 1882: Assiniboia

18xx in what is now Saskatchewan.  What is not to like?

Looking for a decent-shape, complete copy of Sleuth by Sid Sackson.  Originally came out in 1971.

Also seeking Samarkand and Who's the Boss, also by Sackson.

If you have any or all of these for sale, let me know.  I can find decent copies in the US at decent prices, but shipping to Canada is prohibitive and I'm not sure when I'll next be able to get packages from my Montana address.

Thanks!

Game Discussion / Risk Legacy campaign - players wanted (Regina)
« on: December 13, 2019, 04:05:55 PM »
Hi,

I'd like to get a campaign of Risk Legacy going.  I know I missed the big hype period of it :) and there have been lots of other games out there since, but I picked up an inexpensive copy and would really like to give it a go.

I'd probably want to play about 1-2 times a month.  At Chewsday Challenge would be great, but I'm a bit flexible.  From what I've read, the campaign is 15 games long.  It might be possible to play a couple of plays in one night, once a month or so, and be done the campaign in about seven or eight months.

It plays 5 and is best at 4-5 so I'd like to fill the table if I can.

A soft reservation held for CdnPhoenix, who expressed interest, but he is away for a bit so I'll have to check with him when he gets home.

This wouldn't start until the new year.

Let me know if interest.  Strong preference for people who've not played the campaign before.  No Risk experience necessary.

Hi all,

Just a heads-up in case you were interested (or didn't know and might be) - BoardGameGeek is now accepting bookings for its next two cruises.

2020 is a one-way excursion from September 4-16 from Vancouver, via Alaska, to Japan with three ports of call on Hokkaido and northern Honshu before docking in Yokohama in Tokyo Bay.  Lori and I, Scott and Natasha, and Miles are all planning to go on this epic adventure (I imagine many of us will add a week in Tokyo afterwards).  I know some other SaskGames were considering going, so if you are, consider booking soon while rooms are still available:  https://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/33051579

2021 is June 27-July 4, 2021 to and from Barcelona and tours Italy and the French Riviera.  Less time for board gaming, but a lot more to do as far as visiting Europe is concerned.  https://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/33051556  We're likely not going to do this one (overseas trips on consecutive years is a lot for our budget to take) but it's quite intriguing.

The usual BGG cruises are the Caribbean or Alaska, so it's nice to see some variety.

I think the Japanese cruise is particularly interesting, as there are seven consecutive sea days after leaving Sitka, Alaska.  The only downside will be that you will be stuck on the ship.  The Pacific Ocean is big.  :)

Everything Else / Anyone want to see the Roughriders tonight (Oct. 13)?

Lori's sick... but I still want to go.  Ticket's on us.

Interested?  PM me here ASAP.  (Or text, if you know my number.)  The game's at 8.

We're in section 111 row 22 - good seats toward the Pil Country end, in the lower bowl.

I'm sure most of you know this, but for the benefit of anyone who isn't in the know, Tramps permanently closed on August 31, 2017 due to insolvency.

Hi all,

It's Tuesday morning at 9:35 am EDT and Lori is still sleeping because we had an excellent night with the Ottawa Board Gaming Community and didn't get back to the hotel until 1:30 am.  :)

http://www.meetup.com/OttawaBoardGaming/ is their URL - I strongly recommend that if any of you get to Ottawa, that you check them out.  They were incredibly fun and welcoming.

We joined up with their events on Sunday night and last night (and they have huge parallels with our Tuesday and Wednesday events, including the nature of the venues and the attendance).  We got to play quite a few new games and were able to introduce some of the locals to some games we like as well.

They're very interested in some of the things we're doing so don't be surprised if you see them turn up on our forums over the next few weeks.  I've invited them to come join us, check us out, and see what we're doing.  They're particularly interested in some of our more successful events like PGX and our megagames.  (And Rebecca, Nick, et al, if you see this, please reply and say hello!)

We've now had great gaming experiences in three different cities while traveling so I think we will try to put something together for the newsletter about our experiences.

Jim
