So, Shut Up & sit Down recently released a video of them attending an event held by 'Megagame makers', available here: http://vimeo.com/9620... Essentially, it's an all day event set around one of a number of differing scenarios. And from watching the video, it looks fantastic. The remainder of their 2014 events are already full up, but the first event available in the 2015 calendar is Watch the Skies 2, the same game as in the video, except with everything different. Since so much of the game is built around the interaction, obviously that will be completely different, and the intentions of the aliens will be equally different as well. http://www.megagame-m... The events seem to fill up quickly, and I figured you lot would be the best people to ask if you want to come, being used to the board gaming already. So would anyone fancy getting a team together? Seems to be 4-5 people per country. Normally the day costs £30, but if you pay in advance it's £25, and it's half price if it's your first session - Making it £12.50 for newbies, with the money covering the cost of the hall, all the counters and equipment and lots and lots of paperwork required for the game. So, anyone interested? Or even further, anyone been to one of these events before?

I couldn't see the dates - but consider me interested.

http://www.megagame-m... That lists all the upcoming dates. The first 2015 date, which is also the one playing Watch the Skies, is Saturday 21st March. And while that is a long time away, their October and November sessions this year are already fully booked, so the spaces go fast, and I imagine they will go even faster given the SU&SD publicity they will be receiving.

oOO Interested and...... If you click this link to their 'would you be happy to be a guinea pig to help play test a future game they seems to be more options: http://www.megagame-m... Including one on 21st July (two weeks on Monday evening 7-10pm) Might be worth trying to get a few people/team to that?

Ooh, didn't see the playtesting options there. I would be interested in going to one of those with a group of LoBsters as well, and would be able to do pretty much any dates except the 21st and 22nd of July, which is pretty typical! :(

Same here, but this might be something which would be a lot of fun. Given my tendency to nuke other countries in games, I might become very unpopular with the world lol. Just need to think about it a little more.Huhhh... did not expect to watch the whole video.

Well I could make the mini event on the 21st, anyone else considering it? -I'll get on email and see if I can dig out some more info

Ok after some slackness from me sending the email I have some more info on their tryout/playtest games. The one next week is in Streatham, and they do plan on holding a few more in coming months (also in Streatham) so no *desperate* need to do a mad scramble and get a team together by Monday (and maybe we can target a date Will can make after all). Either way I've signed up to their mailing list so should get a note appearing when the next tryout session is on.
