Towel day!

Back in 2001 a genius decided to create a tribute to Douglas Adams, legendary author of the The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, two weeks after his death. On this day, fans around the universe carry a towel in his honour.

What better way to celebrate than by enjoying the sun in the park and playing some games? Let’s meet in the centre of the park next to the large fountain, nearest Metro is Manuel Becerra (lines 2 and 6).

Bring games and your towel, froods!

Shadows of Brimstone – TWO SLOTS OPEN!!!

Help!

We are outnumbered, we are wounded, we are diminished. Yes, we survived – but just look at us: Two of us fled to the west not to be seen again any time soon, two of us caught the void plague and mutated beyond recognition (and Morten even a bit further ;-)) and who knows who else will find the mental strength to go down there another time? 

WE HAVE TWO OPEN SPOTS! (no preparation required)

This might be the opportunity you were looking for! Join us in our next Shadows of Brimstone Adventure, develop your own heroe character, fight your way through the mines against monsters, ancient robots and the abyss of insanity, discover treasures, gear and weapons along the way and come with us to the frontier town to resurrect Morten, fill up on dynamite, get that mutation healed and celebrate our victory in the Saloon!

Series Sampling Society:The Expanse

A new event within the group to share your passion for a series you love with others!

We will watch the first few episodes of a series and after that you can decide if you want to continue watching that series by yourself or with friends. Every meetup somebody will introduce a new series.

This evening: The Expanse!

The plot: ‘Two hundred years in the future, in a fully colonized solar system, police detective Josephus Miller (Thomas Jane), who was born in the asteroid belt, is given the assignment to find a missing young woman; Julie Mao (Florence Faivre). Meanwhile, James Holden (Steven Strait), the first officer of an ice freighter, is witness to an unprovoked attack upon the ship, by craft believed to be from Mars (MCRN Federation). As news of the attack spreads throughout the system, the incident’s flow-on threatens to destabilize already tenuous relations between Earth, Mars and The Belt. Far away from the struggles in deep space, on Earth, Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo), a powerful United Nations executive and diplomat, works to prevent war between Earth and Mars by any means. Soon, the 3 find out the missing woman and the ice freighter’s fate are part of a vast covert conspiracy which threatens all humanity.’

Terror Marathon

The idea is to watch terror movies I have chosen two movies (not very well known but great quality) from the eighties or that remind that decade: Prison and Clown. In the middle we will play board games about the same genre. I have Dead End, The Thing, Zombies Dice. If you have a terror boardgame and wanna bring it we can try.

We will play at my dungeon, I will give the exact adress the same day of the event to the people signed out. So please be sure you have opened the option to receive messages or e mails.

If you wanna bring food or drings there is a great store (Eco Asian) in Juan Bravo 71 (very close to my dungeon). Also there is a Simply in the area. The closest subway entrance is Diego de León (line 4, 5 and 6).

The Final Barbecue

Roast your favourite food as we burn down my apartment in a final farewell to the best view of Madrid’s cityscape.

Labour Day Board Games

Come join us this sunny afternoon to celebrate that we don’t have to work today by playing board games at Café Manuela, right in the centre of Malasaña.
You can bring your own games, but they have massive piles of them in the café. They also have beers, wines, soft drinks, juices, sandwiches,…

Cinco de Mayo Games Night

I have Settlers of Catan with all of the expansions and please feel free to bring your own board game(s). Let’s see what we can put together! Feel free to comment if you have any games that you’d like to bring.

Retromadrid 2017!

Guys, Retromadrid is happening tomorrow. I had been thinking that there were no available tickets for the event, but they updated their info and it turns out that a 5 euros “voluntary reward” includes a ticket for one day. So I’m publishing this suggestion in a hurry, being aware that most people will have planned their weekend, but hoping there’s someone who can join this. I am definitely going to attend this event: so, whoever that wants to come along with me is very welcome. I am also publishing this at the Gamers Multiculturales group, offering both English speakers and Spanish speakers to join (of course, at the event, their activities are in Spanish, so it would be recommendable to have some understanding of the language).

For those of you who don’t know Retromadrid, it’s about retro video gaming. I had been looking forward to a new edition so eagerly, because the last one was in 2014. So, you can tell this occassion in kind of unique… You can check their schedule here:
