December Special Event 12月の特別イベント


I'm really excited about this upcoming Pub Con, on December 27th because not only will my brother, who is visiting from the States, be joining in on the fun, but I will get to have my first British Christmas dinner!

We will have the entire bar to ourselves from 10 am until 10 pm. Starting after 5, if you want to stay, you'll need to order the Turkey dinner

The dinner is a special deal just for us: 2000yen for 1 drink and turkey with at least 2 veg plus mash or roast potatoes, cranberry sauce stuffing and gravy with some xmas pudding and mince pies and ice cream for desert.

If you haven't been to Pub Con in a while, I want to reassure you that we have added new 3 new lights, and the interior is much brighter after sun down!You don't have to come to the afternoon session to come to this event. Please join in if you can!

November 2015 Pub Con

Here are the pictures from last month!

We have (at least) three new lights which brighten the place up considerably more than before.

Also we have a total of 3 tables owned by the club now, which helps make sure everyone has a place to play what they want.

I'm very excited for next month when I'll have my Irish Saga warband finished, and hopefully some better rules to try out Rorke's Drift with.

See you then!



Check out all the new lights!

Much brighter than before.

October 25th Pub Con!

Been awhile since we updated ya!

This month we had a brilliant introduction to Sage Miniatures game thanks to Steven.
We also added some new lighting to the club which really helped!

Some games played this month include:
Dead Of Winter
Game of Thrones
Bolt Action

A shot of the club, early in the day
'Closeup' of the brilliant painting and terrain for the Saga game
Big game of Eclipse going on
The empires about to collide!
Another brutal game of DungeonQuest!
Trekking into the Dragons lair, only to be trounced by an Orc in the first room!
Splendor, getting lots of play at the club
Lot's of zombie games to chose from! This month Dead of Winter ushered us into November.
A bit of X-wing, planet-side over a rocky plateau
In our Bolt Action gaming an amusing story was playing out in the vineyards of Europe.
Who would control the vintage wine cellar? The French or Italians?
and could they stay sober enough to hold it?
A few other games were held, with talk of Infinity and Mordheim to come! So if you want to stop in, The next Pub Con will be held Sunday November 29th! Beer, food and gaming; nearly always a great combo!

Bolt Action in Mogusa

Matt and I had another Bolt Action game, this time on the new table at my place (nowhere near enough space at the Pub!)  Here are some photos.

Lots of fun, with the Japanese reaping the honours of the day.  Purely objective and impartial reporting can be read here.

Next time my victorious Japanese will be humbling Rod's US Paratroopers, in a game I'll be hosting on the 26th.

August 31st Pub Con!

I was happy to see a big crowd turn out again. I hope everyone was able to shake off the summer-time blues and enjoy some gaming.

We had 30 people come: 19 men, 8 women, and 3 children. I'm very happy to see wonderful mix of people able to come and enjoy games together. 

These are the games I saw being played, sorry if I missed any:

Super Dungeon Explorer
Settlers of Catan
Bang X3
Steam Park
Magic: The Gathering
Age of Sigmar
Ghost Blitz

And here is my one lonely picture! 

Thanks to everyone who came out, and see you next month on Sunday, September 27th.

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.

Please be sure to check the map found on that site, or on our "About Pub Con" page.
