I’m still pretty new here to Taiwan and I’m hoping to get out of my apartment during my free times rather than wasting them watching TV. I’m hoping to find groups that are currently engaged in Chess (western, xiangqi, shogi if someone wants to teach me) or Go.
I’m also interested in getting involved in some D&D or other pen&paper games if people are doing any. I have actually no experience in these but it sounds like a good way to kill a free evening and something new to try if people are willing to teach/guide me.
Send me a PM or reply in here and I’ll get back to you ASAP.
My wife and I are settled in DanShui and also really interested in getting back into pen and paper gaming or, preferably, some LARPing We’re looking for any leads to gaming groups that might be accepting new players or, shy of that, putting together our own.
I’d be interested in playing. I had been part of a small group in Taipei who played 4e D&D, Call of Cthulhu and Savage Worlds. Unfortunately, my time is now limited to one or two Sundays a month. Although, I might be able to get away with one or two Saturday evenings.
Also interested! I don’t know about Xinbei, but there is a place called CaCa City in ShiDa area that has a solid selection of board games, and runs pretty cheap, especially if you have a membership. I’d also be willing to meet up somewhere in the city - so long as the directions are perfect. I have a tendency to get lost…
I’ve played a smathering of everything, so anything is good for me. Might need some refreshers though, been a while for a lot of games.
There’s a ‘Taipei Card and Board Game Enthusiasts’ group on Facebook for this kinda thing. It’s got a little over 100 members, and they meet at the two Caca Cities every week, and there are a few 4e games in there.
I haven’t gone in a long time though. Too busy with my wife and running my (full) 2e game.
There’s a big Taipei Gamer group on Facebook. They meet up twice a week usually (Tuesday/Sunday), and sometimes plan parties and such. Pretty nice, inclusive group over all. They also have some AD&D and D&D games going on as well.
