**** URGENT ****


The FGC meeting TOMORROW is cancelled.

It appears that the workmen scheduled to install drying heaters in the main hall today, also installed them in the bar area as well – against the express instructions of the Old Finchleians.

Apparently, the process is difficult to stop once it’s started, due to timings etc.

So, to repeat:

**** FGC on 20th September is cancelled ****

The meeting on the 27th September, as far as I know, is still good.

Sorry for the short notice folks, but I only heard 10 minutes ago.

FGC SUNDAY GAMES DAY - 16th September 12 Noon - 10PM

Games played:

  • Endeavour (x3)
  • Klask (many, many times)
  • Brass Birmingham
  • RA
  • Incan Gold
  • For $ale x2
  • D&D (5thEd.): Goblin Wars of Karameikos
  • Settlers of Catan
  • Ave Caesar
  • Heckmek
  • Camel Up
  • Las Vegas (x2)
  • Rajas of the Ganges
  • Time Stories: Lumen Fidei
  • Lisboa
  • Azul
  • Anachrony

10 hours of fun and frolics with lots of games, chocolate, cake and tea. Lots of tea!

Oh, and pizza!

Klask is such fun and it looks like ‘Brass: Birmingham’ may have a challenger for ‘best game’ in ‘Endeavour’. We even got to play a few golden oldies such as ‘RA’ and ‘Ave Caesar’, amongst others.

A special mention has to be made for the marathon 10-hour D&D session. Way to go guys!

13th September

Games played:

  • GURPS Dungeon Fantasy
  • D&D (5thEd.): Goblin Wars of Karameikos
  • Brass Birmingham x2
  • Great Western Trail
  • Acquire
  • Walk The Plank
  • Las Vegas

Another ‘cosy’ session, though better organised given that we had seen the space last week.

Brass continues its domination as most played board game. (I think at some point we will get 4 separate games played in a session and never has this happened before. We have had 3 at once, but never four.)

6th September

Games played.

  • Brass: Birmingham x2 (… I’m now going to ignore the silly Brass names)
  • Dungeon Fantasy RPG
  • Lords of Waterdeep
  • Carcassonne Hunters and Gatherers
  • Klondike
  • Arkham Horror LCG
  • Yokohama
  • Las Vegas
  • D&D: Castle Caldwell
  • Liberte

Given the ‘cosy’ circumstances, I have to say that the atmosphere was fantastic. Once again full marks to everyone for ‘just getting on with it’.

I think this week we need to spread out a bit more. Perhaps another table in the main reception and games in the two smaller changing rooms at the back. (NB: Veteran members will remember that many years ago it always used to be like this as we didn’t have use of the main hall until at least 20:00)

A note for the four new people. I hope our reduced circumstances have not put you off returning. You all seemed to be enjoying yourselves, so perhaps not.

Current estimates are 4-5 weeks before we are back in the main hall.

Don’t forget the FGC Sunday on the 16th.

Remember to enter and vote on the ‘Great Flood Caption Competition’ being hosted on the FGC Facebook page.
