Sunday Board Games Cardiff

 (0 miles away)

Group that meets most weeks to play German-style (Euro) board games. Games include Settlers of Catan, Agricola, Nuns on the Run, Bohnanza and Stone Age.

The games emphasize strategy, downplay luck and conflict, lean towards development, farming, trading, city building and economic rather than military themes, and usually keep all the players in the game until it ends. We do not like elimination. Some games are cooperative, with all players either winning or losing. Games last 30 to 60 minuets, though some more complexed ones can be longer.

We do not play Monopoly!!!
