Yay! Exciting! Thanks Grim... I shall be there!

I imagine Curio has booked it and everything now so that shouldn't be a problem.

But for which date? It's possible that he's forgotten what with him having booked it so long ago and all.

Sorry Mali, we're just messing with you.

I mean, seriously, why would there be a fucking Wild West village next door to the Cottage?!

All the dates. Cottage is a month long this year.

Has this been booked yet? I've just had an enquiry about a wedding on the 10th...

I could do the 17th for the Cottage however?

It’s 100% been booked for the 10th already, I’m sure.

NEWS!

This is booked for the weekend of the 17th.

The 10th was already booked, and had been since last year. Maybe I should just get a standing booking working.

ANYWAY!

Now we have a confirmed and booked date, please let me know if you are in for sure.

There is no normal weekend.

2019: 18th - 21st [3rd Fri/Sat in October]
2018: 12th - 15th [2nd Fri/Sat]
2017: 13th - 16th [2nd Fri/Sat]
2016: 7th - 10th [1st Fri / 2nd Sat]
2015: 16th - 19th [3rd Fri/Sat]
2014: 17th - 20th [3rd Fri/Sat]
2013: 11th - 14th [2nd Fri/Sat]
2012: 12th - 15th [2nd Fri/Sat]
2011: 14th - 17th [2nd Fri / 3rd Sat] (30th Sep was offered as a poll option)
2010: 15th - 17th [3rd Fri/Sat]

If you eliminate 2016 as an anomaly (IIRC we had to move the date because it was booked out), then 5 out of 9 have been on the 3rd Saturday of the month; however 5 out of 9 have also been on the 2nd Friday of the month.

Then:
2020: 16th - 19th [3rd Fri/Sat]

Super early to be thinking about this shit, but dropping it here so I don't forget.

I'm more than happy to bring along Gloomhaven if folks want to see it in action, but there are two ways to play the game.
1) Casual mode, pick a character, run a one time only scenario, have fun, repeat.
2) Campaign mode, create a character, level up, get loot, do events in the town, then head to the scenario and fuck shit up, repeat.

It actually works really well for mixed level characters in the same scenario, and a party/campaign can be made up of up to 17 different characters (only 4 can quest at the same time though).

Would folks be interested in playing Gloomhaven? If so, would you be interested in option 1 or option 2? Option 1 would be easier, but for option 2 we could leave it setup at the end of a table for the weekend and rattle through quite a few scenarios of a campaign with folks dropping in and out, which might be fun.

Do we have both cottages, Curio? I'd love to play but option 2 is only really viable if we can leave it set up in cottage #2

Col has descent: journeys in the dark which has a similar sounding campaign mode with leveling up and so on, maybe they could run simultaneously for intrigue and enjoyment?

That's the thing with option 2, people who want to try it as option 1 can still just do that. Just grab a character and jump in to a scenario, then bugger off when the party heads back to town.

The bad thing for me would be that it would work best if I handled all the monsters turns and basically DM'ed the thing, as there are lots of nuanced situations that will need rules interpretation. So, depending on how many people wanted to play and how often, that could well be the only game I play all weekend :D
If enough folks wanted to experience the whole thing in its glory, i'm happy to do that though.

I'd like to give X-Wing a go, if it is suitable for a complete novice to jump in.
The electric boogaloo cottage can be the "fuck me, i'm not putting this away again" gaming venue.

It’s absolutely fine for a novice. It definitely fits into the category of “easy to learn; difficult to master”, like chess or poker.

It can get complicated when you factor in pilot and chassis abilities, upgrades and squad-building, but it can be kept very simple to start with.

X-Wing is pigging massive, you should have to rent your own cottage

We could use that huge room in the back of the bar in Cowboy Town that we all went to, remember.
