I know I’m missing one pink slip.

Also, it has come to my attention that certain members have been taking liberties with the ‘Pink Slips’. This must stop immediately. This organisation does not tolerate silliness! [Oh yes we do – Ed]

Future transgressors will be punished! [Oh goody! – Ed]

A good set this week and I have to hand it to the ‘Great Western Trail’ table for also completing the last 3 in the list. That’s about 4 days worth of games in four hours. Way to go people!

Sadly, no games of ‘Return to OM’  ;0)

Oh yes, I can’t add any of the RPG games because no-one filled in their pink slip again. Seriously guys, we don’t have much admin at the FGC so make sure I have your submission before the end of the evening.

One new person, who seemed to have a really good time. Which, of course, is what we exit for.

Facebook Group

A new Facebook Group has been set up, as a better alternative to the Facebook Page that also exists.
Groups are designed with member discussions in mind and so will be a better place to discuss games etc.
Note however that this page should still be used to manage booking in places in the ongoing RPG games as not everyone uses Facebook.

New Gloomhaven Campaign at the FGC

I’m looking for two players to start a new Gloomhaven Campaign on March 8th at the Finchley Games Club.

Ideally, they should be completely new to the game so that we all start from the same point. The commitment will be at least two sessions a month on Thursday evenings, with any others as and when we all want to, or can, fit them in (perhaps at the Sunday all day meetings.)

Please get in touch if you are interested.

FGC AGM 2017 4th May

The annual jamboree that is the FGC AGM is once again upon us.

I anyone has anything to discuss, please let someone on the committee know on the night and it will be added to the AOB list.

There will be statements from all the executive officers and the standard debates on fees etc.

Remember that it will also be free to attend, but I would ask you to not play games during the meeting as this is inconsiderate to those who want to take an active part in the AGM – not that it takes too long these days.

This Sunday, the FGC and  Leisure Games (http://www.leisuregames.com) are holding a board game demonstration in the shop at 100 Ballards Lane, Finchley.

Many, many board games for all ages will be on display, with FGC members and shop staff on hand to explain and guide those unfamiliar with some of the best board games currently available.

All the games being demonstrated will be available to play and that’s the real aim of the day.

So if you fancy doing something different, fun and interesting on Sunday, come on down.

Joint Leisure Games/FGC joint ‘Play Some Games’ day proposal


Discussions have been had with regards to a Leisure Games /FGC joint ‘Play Some Games’ day at the store on a Sunday in October.

The idea is to demo some great ’gateway’ games to those not quite as into the hobby as we are.

The plan is to make a lot of effort to push the event in the local media etc., possibly have a discount for any games bought that day and generally have a good time.

Hopefully this will get some people to buy some games and then come and play them at the FGC.

We would need some enthusiastic volunteers to spend a Sunday (or part of one) explaining how the games work to people who may have never migrated away from Monopoly or Cluedo. Sometimes this can be tricky.

So what do you think?

Good idea? Or has my megalomania got out of control again? (Perhaps both?)

Does anyone have any suggestions or links to media or other organisations etc.

The bad news is that we will need to force the committee to hold a meeting. Yep people (you know who you are), you will have to do some work for the votes cast by the lovely membership at the AGM.

PLAYTEST OF NEW GAME TONIGHT

We will be having a guest tonight with a new board game to playtest, so if anyone wants to give it a try, be prepared.

The usual terms apply. Try and break the game, be VERY honest, but back up all comments with constructive thought and above all, be respectful. Someone will have put a lot of effort into the game so treat it as if it was one of your own.

Floor

As the Old Finchleians are having the floor resurfaced this week we will not be able to use the main hall for gaming. Instead we will be using the bar and changing rooms. Please therefore bear in mind that space will be a little more limited than usual, try not to use more than you need and try to play games that will accommodate lots of players.

Sunday Events

There are two events being organised this Sunday by Leisure Games that might be of interest to some of you. For roleplayers there is an afternoon of playing Fiasco in the park at Alexandra Palace, and for the card gamers there is a Netrunner mini-league taking place in the shop. Speak to me (Graham) if you want more details about either of these events.

If you wish to be a member next year then membership fees will also be due. If there is anything you'd like to appear on the AGM's agenda then please either post a reply to this news item or send me a private message.

Easter Events

Leisure Games are holding a few events over this coming weekend which might be of interest:
  • Saturday is International Tabletop Day, organised by the web show Tabletop. They are encouraging people to hold events on this particular day to promote the hobby. Leisure Games are holding an event - there will be special guests (including the legend that is James Wallis), games and freebies. Things kick-off at around 10am.
  • Sunday is the monthly Leisure Games Club. Organised events this month are Eclipse and the Star Wars LCG, but feel free to turn up with whatever you want to play. I also believe Phil has a Savage Worlds one-shot ready to run. The shop is open from 11am to 5pm - but if we bribe Kara with enough chocolate I'm sure that's negotiable.

Baby!

Congratulations to Simon and Karen on the birth of their daughter this Saturday evening.
Their, as yet unnamed, daughter weighed in at 8lb 12oz - alas not beating the record currently held by Dave & Harriet of 8lb 14oz. Better luck next time guys.

Leisure Games Club

Just a reminder that this coming Sunday (27th) is the monthly gaming club at Leisure Games. 
Format is pretty much the same as FGC - turn up, play some games. There will be a session of the new Star Wars RPG, Edge of the Empire, being run - get in touch with Mike at the shop if you want to reserve a spot. There is an assortment of demo copies of board games you are welcome to use. And, of course, feel free to bring anything of your own along. The shop will be open for purchases. 11am to 5pm. Hope to see some of you there.

Merry Christmas

This coming Thursday (20th December) is our annual silly games night. Attendance is free and there will be an evening of party games, kids games and mince pies. 
The following Thursday (27th) there is no club meeting.
Club restarts on the 3rd of January. For role-players there is currently WFRP and Dragonlance scheduled, but based on recent numbers I suspect someone will need to step up and start a third game.

The bar will be open as normal for drinks, but feel free to contribute any food you want. There are a couple of one-off games of Savage Worlds being organised and much boardgaming.

Fiasco Picnic

 

Just a reminder that this weekend Leisure Games are organising a Fiasco Picnic in Regents Park. From midday-ish we'll be lounging in the sun, eating, and playing the very fine GM-less roleplaying game Fiasco. In the event of rain (and indeed later on when the park gets too cold) we'll be retiring to a nearby pub.

No need to have played before, very easy to teach as the game progresses. Takes around 3 hours (depending on players) so feel free to come along even if you have to leave early.

There is a Facebook event set up: https://www.facebook.com/events/408867965815136/

If you contact the shop they'll be able to give you more info. Sean is organising it but anyone else there will know what's going on.

Alternatively just grab me on Thursday.

Finchley Games Club's 20th Anniversary: 1992 - 2012

Our recent 20th anniversary passed without much ceremony. Are any of the original members still coming to club?

What games got played back then? Had polyhedral dice even been invented?

Club AGM

Just a reminder that it is the club's AGM this week. 

For those who don't know, this is where we elect the committee and discuss anything that needs discussing. Don't worry, it rarely runs beyond about 15 minutes. It's more a formality than anything else. Normal gaming happens afterwards.

It does mean that attendance at club is free this week, but also that memberships expire. Current membership fee is £10 (although it's possible the club will vote to put it up)

End of Year

We're coming to the end of the year so a quick heads-up about what's happening over the holidays.

  • 17th November 2011 to 8th Devember 2011: Normal club weeks. So that's one last block for the roleplayers, and a pile of new Essen releases to get through for the boardgamers.
  • 15th December 2011: Silly Games Night (a.k.a. FGC's Christmas Party) - an excuse to play the more unusual or childish games we own and eat far too much cake. Attendance is FREE this evening.
  • 22nd Devember 2011: For a change the hall is free on the Thursday before Christmas; so this will be a regular club night. We're not being charged for the hall so attendance will also be FREE. I wouldn't expect too many people though given how near to Christmas it is.
  • 29th December 2011: No club this week. Annoy your families instead.
  • 5th January 2011: First club of the new year. For the roleplayers there is a one-week showcase event, take a look in the forums for more details.

FGC @ Leisure Games: Sat 3rd September

 

As a club we have been invited to demo games at Leisure Games on 3rd September.
 
So as to make it easier, I propose that we block the day into hourly time slots. In this way people can turn up whenever they want, for a set period and then do the other things they need to do on a Saturday.
 
If we get multiple people for a slot, we can organise a game for that slot. Not forgetting that the idea is to play games AND get people participating AND generate interest in the FGC AND sell some games for the shop.
 
If you want to turn up, please add your name in the format:
 
09:00-11:00:  Ian Pearson.
 
I’ll collate the names to a complete list every now and then.
 
So to start:
 
09:00-11:00:  Ian Pearson
16:00-17:00:  Ian Pearson

This week included the 2011 AGM. Membership and attendance fees stayed the same. The committee was changed slightly, with Dylan's retirement and the addition of Phil Vigus. There was some talk of running some manner of event. Little was decided.

Silly Games Night

Just a quick reminder to you all that our annual Silly Games Night is on the 16th of December. This will be the last club meeting of the year, with regular meetings resuming on the 6th of January.
