Join NSEG (Northern Suburbs Eurogamers) for an afternoon of #boardgames and card games of every style at the Stolberg Beer Cafe. 

We’ll be playing in the Mahogany Room (it’s to the right after you walk in the door, but ask at the bar and they’ll be able to point it out).

What sort of games do we play?
We play a lot of different style of games which have a wide variety of skill levels. 

We have:
* Games for beginners (which we call gateway games) like Ticket To Ride, Carcassonne, Small World and King of Tokyo
Strategy (Euro) games like Power Grid, Lords of Waterdeep and Suburbia
* Thematic games (that involve lots of dice and role play) like Betrayal at House on the Hill and Dead of Winter
* Party Games (quick and easy games) like Resistance, Spyfall and Time’s Up
* Card Games like Love Letter, Fluxx, Bohnanza, Red7, Munchkin
And much, much more!

And if you love a game, bring it along and show us… maybe we've never heard of it and will love it too!

We do a rules explanation before each game (unless everyone has played it before) so don’t worry if you've never played (or heard) of any of these games… we welcome new players!

Cost
A $3 donation is requested towards the cost of running the event. If you can't spare it, please come anyway - we would rather have as many players as possible.

Food & Drink
The Stolberg has a $15 Lunch Menu

Plus there’s $10 Pizzas ($5 for students!)... check out the varieties here http://www.stolberg.com.au/stolberg-beer-cafe-pizza-menu/

The Stolberg has a fully stocked bar and a wonderful espresso machine… and they do a lovely tea.

I'm just saying... they look very similar when they're mixed in together... maybe a different colour or shade would help?

What's the problem? It's not like people or their children are going to get horribly sick if they drink the wrong one, is it?

This confused me a little as the listed date is old.

I am planning to run A Study In Emerald (Second Edition) at around 4pm. I have never played before but I am watching a how-to video and it seems like a fairly straightforward Euro. It takes 5, Carlos is coming to be #2. Is anyone else interested in playing?

The Witcher Adventure Game (based on the board game) is a paltry 1.49 USD... which is pretty cheap if you like that sort of thing
