Let’s face it. You have probably spent hours on internet-gaming. But who says the internet HAS TO be a part of every game or social event that you participate?
In the enormous mansion at Krausevej, Østerbro (former home of a Jewish stockbroker) cultural forces has created a room of thousand and one board games. Oh yes, the good old fashioned one, with no electronic devices, but cosy drinks and friendly smiles on the side 🙂
As a part time teacher in English I was thrilled to see this:
However, I never figured out the rules, because a brand new game caught my attention; Flickball. This is a real treat to anyone who loves soccer-games, but unlike most of these boardgames you create your own strategy and move your players along as the game proceeds in its 7 minutes match.
Finally, I was drawn into a successful game of “Avalon”. Success meaning that I had to go through a number of quests with my fellow-players without revealing my secret evil identity, until I had successfully “failed” the quests. I did – and my fellow-players did not even hold it against me (in spite of us not knowing each other beforehand). In fact, they were all nice!
If you feel like boardgaming, Bo Thomasen has moved all the board games from his private living room out in Bastard Café.
