|Welcome to the third full meeting of the VUW Games Club.
We meet on Friday evening, centred around the Collins Room. Go to the Student Union building atrium and look for our signs. There will be casual board-gaming starting at 2PM and roleplaying starting at 7PM, unless otherwise arranged by the campaign Game Master. The two D&D games have earlier start times, please e-mail Zak (email@example.com) if you are playing D&D and unsure about the start time.
All campaigns continue this week. Both D&D games have their full complement, but there are still spaces available in Claremont Academy and Divided Galaxies. GMs for both games will be at the Games Club from 6 PM at the latest. James' Call of Cthulhu games runs in the afternoons starting at 2:30, and has spaces available.
This week we will be issuing membership cards for paid members. Membership is $10 for the rest of the year and entitles you to play any of the Club's selection of board games and the campaigns; as well as a 10% discount on second hand books at Arty Bees. The cards will be arriving at the club for collection after 5 PM, so drop by.
The club is looking at buying new board games sometime over the next little while. If there is a boardgame that you would like to see at the club, mention it to one of the exec members.
Also coming up soon is the Guild Council LARP. For details please e-mail Paul Wilson (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We have two single-evening games being offered this evening:
Murder, Inc by Andrew McLeod
Style: a combination of character driven (some player input required) and GM plot. Some activism on the players part would be a good thing.
System: Over the Edge (a D6 based system), it will be rules light.
Age/Maturity: some adult themes - violence/drugs etc.
Energy/Volume: up to the players - more would be better.
Blurb: The Cohen family are up to the neck in it. Their businesses, legitimate and otherwise, are quickly heading south. To make matters
worse they are indebted to the local mafia for a sum that would make anyone's eye water. It's never good to owe people favours, particularly people who like to play rough.
Candy Leviathan Blue by William Bryson
Next week, 31/3 we have Bury the Hatchett by Michael Foster (who ran The Ladykillers on the opening night) and Firefly: Dead or Alive by Nick Cole (who ran Firefly: On a Wing and a Prayer on the opening night).
See you Friday!
