Board gaming! (Twilight Imperium, Axis & Allies, Risk etc)
I'm in Adelaide for at least the next 2 months and have recently expanded my board/wargaming collection. As I only have one other gamer to play with, games like Twilight Imperium are going to waste. If anyone is in Adelaide, drop me a line if you're interested. Currently we have:

Twilight Imperium
Risk (new version)
Axis and Allies: Guadalcanal

And, er, some other games that aren't in front of me right now.

I've decided to update my last post, since I'm now living in Brisbane.

I have the following games now...

Twilight Imperium
Risk (new version)
Axis and Allies: Guadalcanal
History of the world
Space Munchkin
Munchkin Fu

Anyone on the northside involved in a gaming group?

Carcassonne and Munchkin are two of my favourite games. I'm nowhere near Adelaide though so not much help :P

Hi Gavor,

im in Brisbane as well. No gaming group involved in so far. But i got Risk, the really old version and keen to play other games.

Munchkin! What a great game. I do miss playing it that's for sure. Too bad I'm not in Brisbane, I'll be around for a game for sure.

Hey Gavor, your post is pretty old but thought i'd give it a shot. I'm in northside brissie and been looking at getting back into axis & allies again, loved it as a younger one, need to find some ppl still keen for it.

I'm Brisbane northside too - never played axis and allies, but I'd give it a go if we had a group.

Also have
Munchkins!! (standard, Fu, Cthuhlu)
Munchkin Quest (ie the board game of Munchkins)
Battlestar Galactica
Space Alert
City of Horror

And some lighter games like Saboteur, King of Tokyo, The Resistance, Bang!

Also, if you're in Brisbane and keen for some board gaming, theres a group who meet at Chermside library every Friday night - in fact, this week they are playing all Friday and into the night. Not sure if any of them play Axis and Allies (I think I saw it in someones box of games).

How many expansions do you have for Munchkin? LOL

I actually only bought it when it first came out, then bought Munchkin 2 when that came out, but I have seen that they have several expansions now, and several offshoots.

Only 2! Ok, and the board game...

Never actually played Fu or Cthulhu, just bought them originally because I like cheesy kung fu movies, and Lovecraft. Then I thought I would actually explore the base game a bit before trying the expansions.

Munchkins was my first step into the board gaming world (unless you count Monopoly as a kid). I thought it sounded goofy enough, and easy to play. Which is sort of true...the basic rules are ok - its just that half the cards have their own rules.

And Munchkin games seem to drag a little - as you argue over rules, and gang on on whoever is looking most likely to actually win. Still - it can be a lot of fun with the right group.
