For a few months now we have had an idea in our head for hosting a board/card game night at Cerberus bar in Dundee. It’s our local and the licensee was saying he was looking for some ideas for midweek nights when it’s a bit quieter.
For a variety of reasons we hadn’t got round to it yet. Then on the Facebook page of Major Arcana someone asked about casual gaming in Dundee. Hesitant to invite someone we had never met to a house I queried when everyone was free. Checked with the bar and booked the Wednesday night for gaming.
We had to arrive a bit early and grab the few rectangular tables for the gaming (2 together for bigger games). Slowly people started to trickle in including some faces we didn’t know.
In the end about 10 people played a variety of games including Carcassonne, Cthulhu Fluxx, Fluxx, Last Night on Earth, Munchkin, Star Fluxx and Zombie Fluxx.
The bar were quite happy and said we could use it on Wednesdays.
We then ran a second night and had fifteen people there including more new faces. New games included Magic: the Gathering, Munchkin Bites, Settlers of Catan, Small World, Tsuro and Zombie Munchkin.
So right now we are sorting things out a week in advance – in case of gigs, or other festive events coming up in the next month. But expect to be running something at least once a fortnight if we slip back from weekly.
So, if you are in the Dundee area on Wednesday nights and fancy a bit of gaming check out Cerberus Casual Card Club to check we do have something on that night and pop in to play some games.
More importantly – bring along some game you have and introduce some new people to it.
