Hey everyone,

This month we will be meeting on the 3rd Saturday. A heads up for December - Strategy Saturday will most likely be cancelled. The only day that may work is December 14. However, as of now the church won't be available.

For this month, Cory will be featuring A Feast for Odin. In this game players have to hunt, gather basic materials, refine those materials, develop their production-buildings, build/buy ships, and raid settlements. The resulting earnings are placed on the players' board in the best possible pattern to produce income and (later) victory points. This game has a strong rating and plays up to four.



!!!If you have a game you'd like to play and draw some attention to, feel free to volunteer for future Feature Game slots. Just drop me a note and I'll see if we can't get your game in the spotlight.

Strategy Saturday will be at Argyle Road Baptist Church (3510 Argyle Rd) from 7pm to midnight.  As usual we'll have our snack counter open so feel free to contribute a drink or something to munch on.  And feel free to bring along friends (and to forward this invite).

Hope you'll be there,

Allan

Unfortunately the only date that might work in December is the 14th. However, as of now, the church has other commitments and will not be available for us. This could change, so do check back as the 14th approaches.

Hi everyone,

I know that most are aware of this but I want to point out again that I welcome people to take on the Feature Game slot at Strategy Saturday. The advantage of volunteering is that you'll be sure to play a game that you want to experience. The upcoming months are still open. If there is a game you'd like to play, please let me know.

For July, Mark has volunteered to feature Agra. The birthday of the Indian ruler Akbar is quickly approaching. This is your opportunity to gain his favour. On your land in Agra, you cultivate and harvest cotton and turmeric. You possess a forest from which you produce wood, as well as a small, but very profitable sandstone quarry. By trading and processing your wares, you can obtain more luxurious goods, which you will then use to woo notables as they make their way into the capital. Of course, your rivals have the same plan; you must use your wits to outsmart them as Akbar's birthday draws near...

Hi everyone,

The dates for the next three Strategy Saturdays have been chosen. I'd been putting off confirming them until I knew what my schedule would be. As I had hoped Strategy Saturday will be back to its normal 2nd Saturday of the month pattern. Hopefully this change back to 'normal' isn't confusing.

For April the Feature Game will be an older game that revises a yet older classic. N.Y. Chase is Scotland Yard set in the streets of the lower Manhattan. Once again Mr. X must seek to elude the detectives and their now improved drag-net techniques. To put it more simply its a grand ol' game of hide-and-seek.

Hi guys,

Sorry for the late notice, but I just found out that the church basement won't be available after all this coming Saturday. After considering my schedule for the rest of the month (and the fact that it is a short month), I've decided to simply cancel this February's edition of Strategy Saturday. Sorry to disappoint; sometimes things go this way. Hopefully I'll see you on March 2nd.

Allan

PS - Please mention this to anyone else that you may know who has or might be thinking of attending.

Hey all,

Take note of this first bit. The winter dates of Strategy Saturday are going to change a bit. In November we'll be meeting on the FIRST Saturday. In December it will be the SECOND Saturday. And then in January, February, March it will be the FIRST Saturdays. Come April I expect we will be able to return to the traditional second Saturday of the month. So I hope you all got that and don't inadvertently miss one of these game nights.

This Saturday the game we will have featured is Great Western Trail. Currently this is one of Henning's favourite games and he has volunteered to teach it. This is a recreation of ranching in the wild west of America in which players are trying to move cattle to market. Of course there are decisions to be made along the way and only the mostly discerning rancher will gain greater profits than his rivals.
