Since we play board games we're clearly nerds, so here's a FAQ...
Q: What's the Busan Boardgame Club?
A: It's a group of westerners and Koreans
that meet weekly/bi-weekly to hang out, talk, and play board games.
We've been meeting for over a year, though the participants come and
go. New blood is always welcome.
Q: Boardgames? You mean, like Monopoly?
A: Well, Chess certainly has a copy of Monopoly, as well as a number of the board games most of us (westerners) grew up with. The also have eurogames like Puerto Rico ( http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/3076/puerto-rico ), card games like Dominion, war games like Axis and Allies, and other games like Settlers, Carcassone, and strategy heavy games. There is something for everyone. Don't worry if you've only played the standards, I hadn't played any of the more involved games 18 months ago, and I even occasionally win.
Q: What's Chess?
A: Chess is a board game room/bang in PNU area.
Q: Where's Chess?
A: At the PNU subway station come out exit
one and walk straight. Up the pedestrian street you should see
McDonalds on the left on the first block. On the next block you'll see
Kebabistan (Under new management and again the best Turkish/kabob
restaurant in Busan.) on your left and Taj Mahal (look up its on the
second story) on your right. Go up another block and Chess is at the
end of the block on the right. Just head up the stairs and look for the
Q: What's a board game room/bang?
A: You know what a noreabang is? Well, instead of a room where you sing, it's a room where you play boardgames. They have loads of board games you can play, and you only pay a dollar or two an hour. As far as we know Chess is the last board game bang in Busan. Mmm, alliteration.
Q: What's happening after?
A: Like I said above, dinner and drinks if you're interested. There are a number of restaurants and bars in the immediate area so it's an easy transition from board games to eats and drinks.
Q: Is it fun?
A: Yes, it's a good time. I promise, and you can trust me, a random guy posting on the internet.
