Zürich Board Games Evening

It looks currently like the 26th August fits for most of us, but I will still wait before posting the definite date and time somewhere next week.

Location:
Have checked the opening hours of cafe bubbles and saw that they close at 21:00 or even earlier depending on the day ... this is a bit tricky if we start at 19:00. This means that we might need to look for an alternative location. Does anyone know the name of the Bar (it is a larger Bar/Restaurant) right at Helvetia Platz? Or any other suggestions?

Re: Board Games Evening Zurich

Hey there!

I was wondering if any of you have ever played the Arkham horror board game?

(We have the game + almost all expansions in english)

Re: Board Games Evening Zurich

It's a pretty 'geeky' game in Lovecraft theme and takes around 4 hours. Players play in a team so it's a cooperative game.

If anyone is still interested we could host a separate evening for solely this game since it takes some time to explain the rules and so on.

Re: Board Games Evening Zurich

Update on the board-game evening ...

It seems that the 26th August (Sunday) does fit for the majority (Andrzej, Nicolas, Christopher, Circe) ... unfortunately not for me anymore as I am invited for a dinner that evening (had completely forgotten about it...).

But that doesn´t mean that the 4 of you cannot have the games evening.

Location still to be decided (cafe bubbles is not open during evening times as per their website). Either you make it an afternoon games evening or a different location is needed).

Re: Board Games Evening Zurich

Yes, but the proposed date was Sunday ... and on Sundays they close at 18:00.

We could play Sunday 26th from 14:00 (for example) or find a new location (I cannot join on Sunday evening unfortunately).

Or we give it another try and I set up a new doodle - then considering the bubbles opening hours (which I was not aware of )

You could probably hold it in Bubbles (near Stauffacher) on a Wednesday, when they have their backgammon evening.

http://www.cafe-bubbles.ch/

They also have the best cheesecake in Zurich, which I realise is irrelevant.
Do you know why type of bg they are playing? Is it friendly for fun, competitive with / without money involved?

I would like to come and play but it is a long drive so I am interested in knowing the level or any info before I made the trip (live in Riehen)

Re: Board Games Evening Zurich

I would prefer not to combine it with the Backgammon evening, I fear we do not have enough space then. And those who want to play backgammon can just go there on Wednesday ....

Re: Board Games Evening Zurich

Hello everyone,

Sorry for making it very last minute, but I just discovered this thread and I’m totally in. Anytime this weekend is fine for me. I can bring Dixit and Biblios (both card games), Jungle Speed and Arkham of Horror (though I see somebody mentioned it already). I’m also into Backgammon or classic card games. So did we decide on the date/venue yet?

Cheers

Piotr

Re: Board Games Evening Zurich

I have just amended the time for Sunday 26th to 14:00.

Could those who have time on Sunday please update doodle or write me a PM? With all the to and fro I am not sure who is still on.

Great Idea. I'd join. I am interested to play Scrabble, chess or Monopoly. Anything else I'd have to learn. Let me know if I can bring anything, be of any help in organising : )

Zurich Board Games Evening

Hi,

since we have only 2 confirmations (Piotr and me) for Sunday 14:00, I would suggest to give it another try in a few weeks. I will add new options in doodle ...

I trust we will get it going then ... I do not give up easily!

And I read that there is a co-host already (very welcome!!!).

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
Gina

Re: Board Games Evening Zurich

Sorry just realized this got updated. As a rule I can do Sunday afternoons.

Looking forward to meeting everyone. (And trying out this Arkham horror game!)
