Here Be Books & Games

Current read: Moon Called by Patrica Briggs (Diane)

Read the book and we'll meet HBB&G to discuss it.

We're starting a new list! Please bring your pick(s) to the next meeting.

You have to be attending meetings for your book selection to be eligible as the next reading choice.

About the Sci Fi & Fantasy Book Club

The Sci Fi & Fantasy Book Club was founded in January 2013 by Jim Placzkiewicz, aka horror writer Jim Pyer. The first book we read was Jim’s pick, Cloud Atlas, which no one liked much. Since then we’ve read many excellent books - some more loved than others. Regardless of the book choice, we always have a good time discussing it and whatever other books, movies, tv series, and geeky subjects that come up during the conversation.

How do we choose what books to read? Everyone attending gets to add a title to our reading list. We pick one to read each month - usually the one we’ve been able to acquire the most copies of. Rinse and repeat until they’re all read, then we start a new list. You can view the complete list of books we’ve read on our web site at HereBeBooksAndGames.com/book-club/

If you’re not already a member of our Book Club, you’re welcome to join us. Just read the current book selection and come to the next meeting. You can sign up to receive automatic updates and reminders via our Meetup group right here.

Happy reading and geeky discussing!

Here Be Books & Games

The wildly sucessful card-drafting gameplay of 7 Wonders is reimagined in an exciting head-to-head game. 7 Wonders: Duel pits two players against each other in a one-on-one struggle to build and guide their cities through three Ages of development. With many strategic paths to victory, 7 Wonders: Duel is a perfect game for competitive tournament events and quick casual play alike.
Here Be Books & Games will host a 7 Wonders: Duel Tournament Saturday, June 17 during a special extra Game Night. Up to 8 players will compete for some pretty special prizes: metal coins & bag, silver conflict pawns and for all participants, Statue of Liberty Wonder cards.

Qualifiers Start Now
To qualify for the Tournament, you must play three games of 7 Wonders: Duel at Here Be Books & Games by June 10. This can be during Game Night or anytime Tina or Tim is available to play. You can play against Tina or Tim or another player wishing to qualify. However, Tina or Tim has to sanction the game and record the results for your play to count as a Qualifier Game. There is no charge to play a Qualifier Game.

Qualifier Scoring
The winner of each Qualifier Game scores 2 prestige points, the loser 0 points. We’ll also record how you won: Military Supremacy, Scientific Supremacy or Civilian Victory with points. Most Military and Scientific Supremacy wins is the first tiebreaker. Scores will be posted by the door so you can watch your progress.

The top eight players from the Qualifiers will go on to play in the Finals during a special Game Night on Saturday, June 17. Admission for the Tournament is $5.

Tournament Prizes
1st Place - Velvet 7 Wonders: Duel Bag of Metal Coins, Metal Conflict Pawn and Statue of Libery Wonder Card.
2nd & 3rd Places - Metal Conflict Pawn and Statue of Libery Wonder Card.
