Pub Con News


This is Brian here for some information about the July Pub Con and an announcement about what's going on next month.

First, the games played in July!

Dungeon Quest X2
Gem Dealer Reiner Knizia
Guilatine X2
British Colonial Africa: Sword and the Flame
Nations the dice game
Saboteur X2
Guns and Steal
Tokaido X2
Betrayed at House on the Hill
Warhammer 3rd Edition

I'm glad to see Dungeon Quest getting a lot of love. My dad bought it at a garage sale many years ago, yet it is probably the most played game in my collection.

Anyway, on to August.

I had made a slight error in the upcoming events page, which has since been corrected. The August, Pub Con will be on Sunday the 30th, not Monday the 31st.

Starting in August there will be a change to the all-you-can-drink deal. Instead of all the soft drinks from the menu to choose from, the owner has consulted with me to limit the deal menu down to these drinks:

Iced Tea
Hot Tea
Ginger Ale
Orange juice
Grapefruit juice
Hot Chocolate

Also the 8% sales tax will be added to the price, bringing the total up to ¥1080.

The reason for the change stems from the large increase in the number of participants in the event. Back when we started there were about 10-15 people coming, and 4 or 5 of whom would drink soft drinks. Now we have 25-35 people coming and it is too expensive for the bar to keep all of their drinks on the all-you-can-drink list. I hope that doesn't put anyone off too bad.

I look forward to seeing you all on August 30th!

July 26th Pub Con!

Our 8th Pub Con was held July 26th at the Good Heavens! Pub in Shimo-Kitazawa.

Sharing some pictures of the event gives a great idea how it went down. This month I feel like opening up the post style with some heavy handed humor, so please forgive me for all the cringe.

First up are some of the delicious foods and drinks available while we game; at a discount thanks to our hosts, Good Heavens! Pub.
Enjoy a tasty burger?
Or a proper fish and chips.
And wash it down with a pint! Or 3...
Nations, and love that Shepherd's Pie!
Guillotine! Who doesn't enjoy french bashing?
Warfighter. Looks pretty involving.
Digging in the dungeons!
Old-school Dungeonquest. Brutal, Brutal game.
Let's enjoy Japanese tourism with Tokaido! In an English Pub! with Pints! In Japan!
Betrayal at House on the Hill, better played by the spoooky bookcase no?
Not my pic: If you look closely I'm capping somebody; can't dual wield Cannons.
X-Wing, gaining quite a following at the club!
X-Wing also has some slick models ready to go!
Some of the Old Guard keeping it real.
Into the Heart of Darkness.... good times!
More Zulu action!
There was a brief game of "Oldhammer" Warhammer 3rd edition going on later, but I was too involved to remember to take pictures! My opponent had a nicely painted Night Goblin army on the table too!
Hope everyone enjoyed the event, and we are always looking forward to more players to enjoy games with us!

The next Pub Con will be held on August 30th 2015.
