Book Club Meeting

Book Club Meeting

Current read: Proven Guilty by Jim Butcher (Jonathan)

Read the book and we'll meet HBB&G to discuss it. We just started a new list. (Note: you have to be attending meetings for your book selection to be eligible as the next reading choice.)

Here are the submissions I’ve received so far, in alphabetical order by title:

• Do Comets Dream (Star Trek TNG) by S.P. Somtow (Diane)

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 www.herebebooks.com/events/index.html#bookClub.

Are you ready to Cease and Desist!? It's the new Smash Up expansion featuring characters eerily similar to those of some of your beloved TV shows and movies.

Smash Up: Cease and Desist can be played on its own as a two-player game or combined with other Smash Up titles to allow for up to four players to compete for control of bases at the same time.

Smash Up: Cease and Desist includes four factions — Astroknights, Changerbots, Star Roamers, and Ignobles — with 22 cards for each faction. To play, you shuffle together any two factions, whether from this set or any other Smash Up title, then start playing.

To celebrate its release we'll be holding a demo day for Smash Up: Cease & Desist at Here Be Books & Games. So drop by and give it a go!

Guildhall Fantasy: Coalition Demo Day

Guildhall Fantasy: Coalition Demo Day

Saturday, August 20th, 2016, 1:00 pm - Saturday, August 20th, 2016, 5:00 pm

Here Be Books & Games

Summerville, SC  29485-8535 Map

Do you have a thirst for adventure? Is your middle name danger? Do you just like treasure? Form a party of adventurers to help you be victorious! The more members of each class you have, the greater the bonus they’ll give you—but be careful; your opponents might try to poach your party members!

In Guildhall: Fantasy, 2-4 players compete to create the perfect party by recruiting adventurers into their guildhall chapters. Collect sets of cards with unique abilities to control the table, and complete a full chapter to claim victory cards.

The three releases in the Guildhall Fantasy line are all stand-alone games that can be played individually. You can also combine the cards from any of the Guildhall Fantasy releases and play them together. The three releases are not expansions, they’re combinable.

To celebrate the release of Guildhall Fantasy: Coalition we're holding a special Demo Day. Come quench your thirst for adventure. We'll teach you how to play!
