Potential Quartermaster General tournament at UK Games Expo 2016

A volunteer (unaffiliated with Halesowen Boardgamers) is considering running a team-based Quartermaster General tournament at this year's Game Expo. Would anyone be interested in competing and, if so, do you have a preference for the day (Fri, Sat or Sun) and length of tournament (2 rounds over 4 hours, or 3 rounds over 6 hours)?

Players wanted for Kingdom of Kiralysag and Mistfall

I'm looking for a 4th player to join Dave F, Gordon and myself tomorrow (Wednesday 13th) in the second playtest of Kingdom of Kiralysag.

I'll also be bringing Mistfall, a co-operative fantasy-themed game, to be played and voted on for the UK Games Expo awards. As I'll be playing Kingdom of Kiralysag, I won't have time to explain Mistfall, not that I've had time to read the rules yet myself. But anyone is welcome to play the game, ideally someone having read through the rules beforehand. It is possible that I'll be bringing the game the following Wednesday too.

Games Played - 6 January 2016

Into a new year and I'll see if I can make another go at writing a short weekly bit on the Wednesday sessions. We'll see how long that lasts. We had 13 in attendance for the first session of the year including Liam for the first time and John who's up from London on one of his occasional visits. We split 5,4,4.

Stats Review 2015

This is the 2015 review of games played at the club, corresponding articles for 2008 - 2014 are linked from the "Previously" box to the left, usually under January of the following year, but sometimes under December of the year in question. As last year I include a comparison with the previous year. Full details are on the Stats Pages on the website. There is also a geeklist of all the games played here.
