Reminder: GDCIE Shadow Hunters

November 28, 2011 Comments off

See? I didn’t lie this time. No room change. The ultimate (as in final) GDCIE of the term will be tomorrow, Tuesday November 29, 2011 at 6:00pm in MC4058. We will be discussing:

Shadow Hunters, by Yasutaka Ikeda
http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/24068/shadow-hunters

Again, this will be one of those things where we play the game at the discussion. I usually figure something fun and multiplayer is a good way to end the GDCIE for the term.

Reminder: GDCIE TRAUMA (room change)

November 21, 2011 Comments off

What is up with me and getting these rooms wrong? I have no excuse for this one, because I knew what room we’re supposed to be in, I just wrote down the wrong thing in that last post. I must be getting my events mixed up. The next GDCIE is tomorrow, Tuesday November 22, 2011 at 6:00pm in MC4058. We will be discussing:

TRAUMA, by Krystian Majewski
http://www.traumagame.com/

The Paper Jam has been and gone, so with TRAUMA we will be returning to the electronic variety of interactive entertainment. For this week at least. It may be of note that this will be the penultimate GDCIE of the term.

Reminder: GDCIE Apocalypse Girl (room change)

November 14, 2011 Comments off

So, I went and lied to you when I first told you the room for the next discussion. I did correct that mistake, but you probably didn’t notice, so take note. The next GDCIE will be tomorrow, Tuesday November 15, 2011 at 6:00pm in MC4041. We will be discussing:

Apocalypse Girl, by Sydney Freedberg
http://www.1km1kt.net/rpg/apocalypse-girl

As mentioned before, this is a pen and paper style rpg, and one that was made in 24 hours to boot, so it might serve to get people prepped for the Paper Jam this weekend. We’re going to playing it at the discussion, but it would be best if everyone gave the rules a read before hand, so we can get right to playing with minimal explanation. Also, if anyone has some six sided dice around, they might consider bringing them along (we have a bunch, but more would be appreciated).

Reminder: GDCIE Carcassone

November 7, 2011 Comments off

As (almost) always, it’s time for your weekly discussion reminder. The next GDCIE is going to be tomorrow, Tuesday November 8, 2011 at 6:00pm in MC4058. We’re discussing:

Carcassone, by Klaus-J├╝rgen Wrede
http://www.riograndegames.com/games.html?id=48

Remember, it’s a board game and we will be playing it at the discussion tomorrow, and talking about it while/after we play. So if you haven’t had an opportunity to give it a try yet, don’t worry so long as you have some free time tomorrow evening.

Reminder: GDCIE Soundless Mountain II

October 31, 2011 Comments off

It’s All Hollows’ Eve tonight, and you know what that means. That’s right, it means the next GDCIE is tomorrow, Tuesday November 1, 2011 at 6:00pm in MC4058. We’re discussing:

Soundless Mountain II, by Jasper Byrne
http://superflatgames.com/wordpress/?page_id=139

Give it a play tonight if you haven’t already. Being a retro de-make of Silent Hill 2, the best way to try experiencing it would be in the dark with headphones, I should think.

Reminder: GDCIE Gravity Bone (room change)

October 24, 2011 Comments off

Well, I didn’t forget the reminder this week, but I did lie to you about which room the discussion will be in. The next GDCIE will be tomorrow, Tuesday October 25, 2011 at 6:00pm in MC4058. We’ll be discussing:

Gravity Bone, by Brendon Chung

Hopefully you’ve played it through already or, if not, will have played it through before the discussion tomorrow.
