Ugh.

Sorry to have been taken down by a sudden illness and miss meeting a new face.

Actually, three new faces. We introduced (read conscripted) Bruno and Tammy into fighting the Ennead and then reascuing Spirit island from hideous indvaders.

How did the Spirit Island game go? Which spirits did everyone play, and did you win? Did they like it?

Standard intro game. No events, no adversary.

Me: Virtal Strength.

Jim: Shadows Flicker

Tammy: Lightning

Bruno: River

 

They seemed to like it. As with most intro games took a couple of turns ot get the rhythm of play but by the end they were dealing with things without me making suggestions.

Cool, yeah, Spirit Island is a super-cool game. If I had access to my PC right now I'd suggest that we can play it on Tabletop Sim, but...well, yeah. Not for a while yet, sadly :P.

Awesome! That's right around the corner from Ye Olde Mitre, which is one of my favorite pubs in London! I'll plan to be there for the meetup and then wander over there after while :)

As long as I know numbers before I can arrange it with the organisers. Being out of towners you can't be expected to join the meetup.

Paul/Andy,

Do you know if any more will be joining us on the Tuesday? Just as I need to know how many guests to get on the list.

There's a slim chance Mezike might want to join, but he could speak for himself. I'll give him a nudge to look at the forums ... I can't speak for any of the other GtG staff. There are six of them total, including Paul, but what the other five will do, I dunno.

For info, likely games I'll be bringing:

Sentinels + Playtest stuff

Spirit Island + Playtest stuff

Compounded - Now with added Geiger expansion

 

Sagrada (4 player dice drafter)

Escape from Pompeii (4-player placement and race)

And it looks like we're into the 8-10 players range depedning on exactly who shows up.

 

Edit: It also appears that Keith Baker and Jean Ellis will be demoing their new game at the meet-up, Illimat, if anyone's interested in that information.

Message from London on Board re tonight:

Hi all,

Unfortunately due to a double booking at the Sir Christopher Hatton the cellar bar will not be available tonight, so we'll be in the raised area on the ground floor instead. Space will be limited, so please update your RSVP if you are no longer able to attend.

Regards,

Simon

 

I've checked and our RSVPs are still in place, but figured might as well alert people.

Sorry to have missed you all, but sick Nephews take (begrudging) priority.

On the plus side I didn't have to walk in the rain you brought over with you!

Next London Sentinels day will be either the 22nd or the 29th July. At present, considering the 29th to give OblivAeon maximum amount of time to arrive.

Hehe :D. As usual, I don't mind when we meet up. Hopefully the stupid crappy Football will have finished by then so we can actually just sit down and play like normal without getting shunted around between rooms :P.

Ooh yeah, kept reminding myself about this until yesterday when sign-ups went live and I promptly forgot about it, lol. Hope you've received your great big mega-shipment by then...although, um...good luck with getting it all to London ;). I'm trying to work out just how big the mega-box is from photos but it's hard to tell the scale.

If ?i don’t get it by Friday, I may do an emergency reschedule so keep an eye out.

The collector's case is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to the collector's case.

Okay. Well, as long as I don't panic or forget my towel, everything will be fine, right? ;)

And yeah, I don't mind if we have to change weeks to allow for stuff to arrive. Might also allow for the weather to cool down a bit so I can lug all this stuff back from London without melting :P.

Whatever happens don't bring mine.

I have decided to not attend this weekend, some train lines are out and I don't feel like jumping trains when I can go see my nephews instead.

Everything has arrived.

I will not bring your stuff this time MM.

Ameena, for anticipation purposes, the big box is about 2/3 the size of the wheely case o’ doom.

Woooah, okay...yeah, that's pretty big. Hm. Well, I'll bring some really big carrier bags and see if it'll fit. If not, I suppose I get to lug it in my arms, lol. That'll be fun getting back from the station. But yaaaay it's finally arrived! :D Woohoo, been looking forward to this, even if I have already been able to play with these decks when we meet up.

And then I can start looking forward to the new Spirit Island expansion, even if it's still a year or two away :P.

As glad as I am that horrendous heatwave is finally over, couldn't we have had today's weather yesterday instead? I mean, couldn't the two days have swapped or something? Bleh. Just complaining 'cause on this day, of all days, it's chucking it down outside :P.

Oh well...Oblivaeon, here I come :D.

Hehe yeah, managed to get this thing back to the house (got a taxi from the station :P). Will sort all the cards into it tomorrow, I think. Um, although one of the handles broke on your bag when I was putting it into the taxi :(.
