Due to the COVID-19 isolation that we are partaking in, Strategy Saturday will not be taking place in April.  Hopefully we can meet again in June.

Take care everyone.

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all well. Sorry for a bit of a later notice but Strategy Saturday will be this weekend.

Our Feature Game will be Automobiles. Players see build a customized race car and assemble the best race crew. The race car and crew are represented by a collection of cubes garnered from various options that are available. Starting with the same small set of cubes, each player builds their collection as they play the game. Use these cubes to enhance your performance, train your pit crew, and ensure your race car runs as effectively as possible. Be the first to cross the finish line and watch that checkered flag wave! Check out it's listing on BoardGameGeek website:



!!!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

Hey everyone,

So I can't do Strategy Saturday in December - the dates and other commitments just don't line up for me. However, Henning has been good enough to "pinch-hit" this month by hosting a games night in my stead. This means that there will be a change of venue (see below). The times will remain the same: 7pm until midnight-ish. Henning is up to feature the game Octopus' Garden by Roberta Taylor of Calgary. This is the first winner of the Canadian Game Design awarded in 2010.

Be sure to note the info below!

Hope you can make it and have a good time,
Allan

Prairie Spruce Cohousing
1625 Badham Blvd. (Off broad by the CBC building)
At the enterphone, dial 3022* and Henning will let you in.
Dec 7 7:00pm until close

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.

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.
