[quote user="macedwin"]duh, i don't play jazz at all!!! for jazz, just get a pianist lah! bands are for loud, tuneless, rock music ;-) i assure you, after you hear our screaming vocals, the screaming kids will seem very much at home! if you are going to get kids below 8, then you must borrow our maxi games - bamboleo, chicken cha cha cha and villa paletti. these will keep them busy. alternatively, give them a few boxes of tomy train tracks (the blue plastic ones) and they'll be fixing tracks all night and watching their battery powered trains zoom by...[/quote]
Yes,we have just all the perfect games for the under 6 gamers that night- Hiss ; Fowl Play, Wallace & Gromit boardgame.Of Battery trains-When kids are exhausted and frustrated ,they bash each other's head with Tomy trains and wish they can tie that annoying 2 year old to the tracks and run him over with extra large engines! My mistake of forgetting the Play Dough ( they'll enjoy feeding the baby that)
Pianist ? Only? Surely you must be joking Edwin.My quartlet will do Stacey Kent's " So Nice ".Nothing less than that to content my Warhamming gentlemen .Shrapnel, change your guitar strings.Take mine if you need 2.David at the piano,Ernest the bass, John whatever he fancys to play .
And when we have had enough of Stacey, we 'll play Jonny Mathis Isnt it Romantic to calm the nerves of Jeff, Anemesis,Henry , Wolf , Ah Heng as they combat Starcraft.
Rock?? Play at Mage la.Beware of Mata ok.
[quote user="LoStBoYz"]Few things could've been made better :- Gamemasters to teach games was a good idea, but gamelist was not given earlier for them to beef-up on the rules. Scary to throw them out in the open and expect them to know every games there are available.- The theme was not clear : Was it a cafe with boardgames or boardgames with food served?- If volunteers was needed; could have just asked on BGC and specify what was required of them.- Idea was there but execution was not. But then its not easy to execute such things, especially when there are adults and kids needing different things.- Throw away the PCs and Laptops next time, those things will attract kids like flies.[/quote]
Looks like there were certain areas we didnt take into consideration... Above all the theme is very important. You're darn right about the PCs...
Agree to the Post Mortem:Distractions,lots of them eg. excited kids,computers,not enough helpers to guide/manage the crowd.Still we're glad we managed to introduce games to so many Newbies who might join our OTK sessions soon. They're already asking for MOOORE! My Dentist FHM pal who brought her happening hubby and 2 young children certainly didnt regret staying back till 10 cause I am sure I heard her laughter way behind in the kitchen as she played HEY ,THATS MY FISH with her hub and 2 other pals.Half way through,Ernest was so excited that he stood up while trying to work out his escape , threatening to overturn the table cause his penguin was trapped !
And the happening husband & wife team (Fiona & Shrek,..i mean Steven) whom we did Colloseum with at Mage actually turned up to our most pleasant surprise.Even kept to her promise of teaching us GLOOM ,to the delight of my 8 year old Sam ! Who later ' killed ' her mom in Wolf and had the cheek to say "Its not me! I wont do this to my mom..." seemingly innocent expression.Too much of Peter Pan and High School Musical and she's a Drama Queen.[~]
Event Report of Friday the 14th.
Hobby Canteen event came about when good friends- C_mun and shrapnel, shared the idea of spreading the gospel of boardgaming.., even to their very own friends. Also, what sparked the idea was the lamentation of the lack of ASH babes. And the FHMs.
They got hold of Eric (an old friend of many years) - he has got the venue.
And Kopikid, he brews coffee passionately.
Time to start: 700pm (but many were expected to be late due to Friday and allâ€¦)
FHMs usually mean there will definitely be kids. Heck, there will be families. Hence, few things were set up:
1 Nursing room
2 Kids Room
3 Food was catered (since they realized that moms will rush home to immediately pick up kids to Hobby Canteen with nothing in their tummy).
Below are their open, honest reports. Sources also include the feedback forms.
Finally, Hobby Canteen is happy to have cooked up such an event within 2 weeks. On the other hand, they humbly apologize should there be any sort of disappointments caused.
Thereâ€™s an almost unimaginably huge room for improvement. Tolong help share ideas, ya!
(Pics coming soon!)
Sam, Cmun , Stephen.
Objective of the game: murder your family , prevent your opponents' families from dying. Keep your opponents alive by providing them good health, happiness. Send yours to their fateful death commencing with depressive events, spiteful illnesses and finally an ironic end.The first player to viciously end the lives of all 5 members of his family wins the game.
