Re: Board Games Evening Zurich

Hi all,

Should we try on sat/sun 22-23 or 29-30?

Monopoly could be nice as a first game

At the moment, both options seem fine to me. I propose to setup another Doodle schedule which makes easier to track things

Oooh, this thread comes at an interesting time for me as I'm currently reading Dave Gorman's book about playing random board games with strangers.

Presumably there's hundreds of Scandinavians on the EF that already host regular board game evenings. They're mad for it up there.

Which reminds me, I have Partners if any Danes/Faroese fancy a game.

Re: Board Games Evening Zurich

Allright, where should we play then? I'm a bit afraid if there is no place in bars on sat/sun Unless we go early?

(I'm trying to figure out this doodle thing so be patient)

Re: Board Games Evening Zurich

I love board games, monopoly, risk, and others. But, my favorite is Settlers. I miss having a group of friends to play settlers with. So, if anyone is looking, please let me know.

Re: Board Games Evening Zurich

Are there Starbucks in Zürich? Perhaps that might be an option for a Sunday (provided they are open, of course)...

There are Starbucks in Zürich ... all over the place.
Since I don't use them, I don't know their opening hours. If they're in a major station (eg HB, Stadelhofen) then they're likely to be open on Sundays until 8pm.

Greetings!

Here's the doodle link http://doodle.com/w8rn9i78vi5bq8rs#table
As you can see i'm no master with that, sorry!

We can bring monopoly uk classic version for 2-6 players.

Any ideas/wishes where we could play? I see Starbucks was mentioned

Re: Board Games Evening Zurich - NEW DATES

We give it a 2nd try to find suitable dates for the Zurich Board Games Evening.

I have updated Doodle with 2 new options. 2 times Sunday afternoons as this would work with the Cafe Bubbles opening hours.

http://www.doodle.com/fdcreeu4aurzgeww

Please send me your e-mail via PM, I can then update all participants via e-mail and post it here in the EF too.

Gina

Re: Board Games Evening Zurich

Hi, does not really work out as it seems ... we would be 3 for the 28th Oct. I guess we should be min 4 people.

Might give it a 3rd and last try somewhere in November.

Gina

P.S. someone with the name Christoper has signed up in Doodle. Cannot get in contact as I have neither e-mail nor EF name ...

Re: Board Games Evening Zurich

I'd be interested in doing this... I have Settlers, Carcassonne, and Quirkle. I was wondering if anyone has Dominion?

Re: Board Games Evening Zurich

I was thinking of starting a board game (and/or cards) night at my house in Greifensee -- maybe one weekend night per month during this Winter. I only have Scrabble here, though (my favorite game).

If anyone is interested, please let me know.

Other games I love are Cranium and Pictionary, but unfortunately, I don't have those here with me in CH.

Or if you all end up needing an extra player sometime, please PM me and let me know.

Hi,

thanks for all the replies.

We can try Cafe-Bubble, sounds good. Otherwise, there is a Bar/Restaurant at Helvetiaplatz, where I once saw people playing board games.

Scrabble might be a bit too challenging for non-native English speakers (like me). I was thinking of playing something like "Settlers of Catan", Monopoly or similar type of board games, where 4-6 of us can play together. Chess and Backgammon would be just for 2 players.

If everybody brings one or 2 games, we should have a good selection.

I will set up (and post) a "doodle" with a number of options (Somewhere August/September) to see which date fits best for the majority.
