BGC Boardgame Retreat 2011
« on: April 10, 2011, 05:00:18 am »
Rite.. while June 4 looks like weeks away but time flies pretty fast. Let us start discussing this here; all are welcome to post, ask questions, provide suggestions etc.



Plan is tentatively to drop in to location morning of June 4 (Sat) which is our Agong's B'day so will be a public holiday for everyone. We aim to start the Day One gaming around 9-10 am and do a full day till 6pm. Break for dinner, then it's the start of the famous After-8 Gaming session where you get to sample games like 18xx, Dune, Diplomacy maybe even TI3?



Sunday we start again at 9 am (after breakfast) and game till 2-3pm. that'll conclude our one-and-half day of Retreat Gaming. Prizes will be there of course!



p/s I'm still way overdue with last year's event report. Hope to squeeze time in-between those Power Grid eventreps and OTK sessreps to get this completed so that those who did not attend last year's event have an idea of how it went. http://community.boardgamecafe.net/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':P' />



You may want to start with reading Heng's recap of the 2010 Retreat

And there's also this 2006 report of the one we did at Awana Genting.

Has it always been "competition" style? Seems a bit stressful.. haha.



I think there should be a game where everyone can play - Wits and wagers teams, werewolf, etc. We can also come in costumes?

Yes we shud whip out a werewolf session. We always wanted to do that but the After8 Gaming venue was not suitable (like OTK style). So hopefully this trip at PD allow us to do so.



As for "competition", it's called semi-competition. Pretty relax.. you basically move up-n-down the tables only and everyone gets to sample different games. We even give away prizes for those with the lowest score!! http://community.boardgamecafe.net/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/dance3.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='[dance3]' />

Average about rm150-200 (with t-shirt) but excluding accommodation. But participants get to buy a game from us at 40% discount so you kinda get a rebate there.



This time if we are doing it at PD, cost shud be lower.

kaz: in my experience, although it is competition style, it is VERY friendly, some more there are ladies too. so it's err... casual competition?

Sweet! 2 full days of gaming, i.e. possibility of completing ONE game of World of Warcraft!



Jokes aside, this looks very, VERY fun. Looking forward to more details.

Hi All,



 Standard Retreat Package



 First, let’s look at the standard Retreat package



 -          RM160 for the Retreat fee which includes two days of gaming (in a meeting room setup), lunch & tea-breaks for both days, and a special BGC Retreat 2011 t-shirt



 -          RM70 for shared accommodation in a 2-bedroom apartment which can take 4 pax. Breakfast (Sun) included in the accommodation price



 -          So total package per person is RM230 (retreat + accommodation)



 -          Exclude travel arrangement to Tiara Beach Resort, Port Dickson and Dinner on Sat evening



 To avoid logistics issue, we are strictly not having anyone exclude the accommodation component and choose their own accommodation etc. Best to get everyone IN the same location. Anyway we are passing out the accommodation at cost since Tiara (http://www.tbr.com.my/),  is charging us RM280 for the 2-bedroom apartment.



 -          Those who wish to stay in studio apartment (2 pax) will be paying RM90 per pax (since a studio costs rm180), so total package per person is RM250 (retreat + accommodation)



 We are offering a 10% for those who came for last year’s retreat. The cost for them would be RM207/pax (for 2-bedroom apartment)



 Game Purchase Promo



 All paying retreat participant will be able to buy one game (in stock) from us at 40% discount from retail price. Almost all games can be included in this package except those costing more than RM350 retail price (and there’s not many game in this category anyway). This offer expires 3 months after Retreat Date.
