It was a busy month of playing games and renewing memberships, or joining for the first time. With so much activity it’s not surprising that a number of people gained a new rank this month. Leader of the pack Eddie has knocked over another rank reaching Archduke. Twelve other members also gained ranks.
Adrian R and Alex D are Princes
John M is now a Marquis
Terry K and Graham M are Viscounts
Sean H is now a Baronet
Steve T and David B are Knights
Peter B, Dustin H, Jennah G, and Philip B are now Esquires
It was a large club meeting to kick off 2013, with 54 members and guests playing a lot of different games. Ten club members gained a rank today, including Leanne J, who is now a Princess of Gaming. We always knew it!
In addition to Leanne J;
Jeremy N is now a Duke
Vanessa T and Angela C are now at Viscountess rank
Neil H and Barbara K are at Baronet/Baronetess rank
Greg P is now a Knight
Richard T, Joesph C, and Kat Mc G are now Esquires
Congratulations to all! Every club member whose name in on a sheet today gained points, and the new standings are now up on the Game of Games page.
The Christmas meeting was incredibly busy with a very full hall, filled with very full gamers after the massive lunch everybody brought, plus the addition of pizzas. You will be pleased to know that we were up to the challenge and very little food was left over at the end!
There were a couple of special events, the LXG Christmas Trivia, and the Grand Melee and Thunderstone league finals, that boosted people’s points quite significantly. Outside of that the sheer volume of games being played meant there are more ranks gained in December than in any month so far!
David K is now an Elector, joining Eddie C at the highest rank gained so far, thanks to his league organiser points for running the grand melee league.
Keith D is now a Prince, with his league organiser points from the Viewpoint league yet to be added to his score. Running the trivia event netted Keith a cool 100 points, and they were well deserved given the amount of work Keith put into making this event run smoothly!
Jeremy N is now a Marquis, with his points for running the Thunderstone league yet to be added too.
Ross vS is now a Count, the only one of that rank at present.
Anthony H is now a Viscount
Three new Barons today are Nigel B, Andrew B, and Liam P; also Vanessa T is a Baroness
Tim H, Andrew W, and Edward E are all Baronets, with Grace C a Baronetess
Two new knights; Luke I and Luis C
A whopping five new Esquires as Jason A, Veronica A, David B, Rory W and Lauren W move up past novice rank.
Well to to everyone, have a happy and safe Christmas and New Year’s. We hope to see you at our first meeting of 2013 on 20 January.
Fourteen club members gained at rank today, at a very well attended club meeting. Dozens of members and guests braved the early summer storms to play some games! In fact the weather was rather convenient, with the shy clear as members arrived, two separate downpours during the day, and then clear skies as we all departed!
Adrian R is now a Duke
David M is now a Marquis
Lance A is a Viscount
Terry K, Angela C and Andrew B all reached Baron/Baroness rank
Vanessa T, Liam P, and Mal O all reached Baronet/Baronetess
Megan L, Neil H and Ashton S reached Knight/Lady rank
Franck F and Greg P reached Esquire
Congratulations to all!
We also had three previous members rejoin today, thus reactivating their old scores (and adding today’s games to that score). If you do leave the club and rejoin later, your old points will be waiting for you, you can’t lose them!
Eighteen club members went up a rank out of today’s meeting. Eightneen. Well done guys!
Current ladder leader Eddie C knocked over another rank, reaching Elector. There is now well over one hundred points and the Prince/Princess rank between Eddie and his closest rival. Today’s update also includes points won at last month’s Viewpoint games.

There are so many ranks gained this time, here are the images for each of the eight different ranks attained in October. Full standings including individual points are available on the Game of Games page.
There was a busy club day today, and so there were a few game of games results sheets handed in. There were fewer sheets than usual today, mainly because people were playing fewer, longer games this month.
Six club members gained a rank today:
Courtney J is now a Marchioness
John M is now a Viscount
Lance A is now a Baron
Andrew B is a Baronet
Kathleen B and Alex Su reached Esquire rank
Well done to all! There are currently a few games sheets still to be handed in, namely the Viewpoint league results and the late game of Settlers of Catan.
Full list of rankings can be seen on the Game of Games page. Remember, you must be a current club members to gain points.
The current ladder leader, Eddie C, is just four points away from reaching Elector level!
The scores have now been updated with the last new sheets from Winter Retreat, plus all of the July meeting results, including the Twilight Imperium game that lasted for the whole club meeting, plus the Viewpoint and Midgard games.
Twelve club members gained a rank at this meeting (or through Winter Retreat points).
Courtney J is now a Countess
David M, Jeremy N and Jason C are now at the rank of Viscount
John M, Ross vS, and Alex Sp are now Barons
Angela C is a Baronetess and Luke vS is a Baronet
Callum McK, Kaden C and Phil S are now Esquires
Congratulations to all, especially Phil S who gained the rank of Esquire at his first LXG meeting! See all rankings at the Game of Games page.
A lot of games were played and so a lot of ranks were gained. The 8th level fell to the redoubtable Eddie C, who is now leading the rankings as our first Duke. With a massive 129 points gained over Winter Retreat, Eddie actually increased his lead as no one got more than that!
The updated rankings are based on all game sheets received over Winter Retreat, up to 12.30 on Sunday. Any sheets completed after then will be added to members’ scores after the July club meeting.
If you are a non-member who attended Winter Retreat, your scores on the slips that were completed and handed in have been counted. If you join LXG over the next month or two those scores will be added to the leaderboard. If you’re curious to know how much you got, just ask in the comments section below.
Fifteen club members who attended Winter Retreat this year gained a rank. Some club members actually skipped an entire rank, so great was their haul of points!
Eddie C is now a Duke
Adrian R, David K, and Leanne J reached the rank of Marquis/ Marchioness
Alex D and Keith D are now Counts
Courtney J and Megan B are now at the level of Viscountess
Jason C is now a Baron

With the results from the Viewpoint State Finals in, there are also some additional Game of Games points to calculate. Five of the competitors managed to gain a rank from their efforts, including current ladder leader Eddie, who ascends to the rank of Marquis.
There is now a full rank (Count/Countess) lying between Eddie and the second-ranked player. Our club president has opened quite a lead!
Others who gained a rank are:
Alex D is now a Viscount
Sam M is now a Baronet
Nigel B, Oliver C, and Grace C have all reached the rank of Knight/Lady.
Let us not forget Keith D who put on the event. Keith receives organiser points, which moves him up two ranks to Viscount, just three points ahead of son Alex!
Another big day in May, with 47 people competing in A Game of Games. We had quite a few new ranks this month, remember your new badges will be available for purchase at the June meeting. Cost per badge is $2.50 with $1 of this going to MS.
Congratulations go to those who gained a rank this month:
New Vicountess: Leanne J
New Barons: Jeremy N; David M
New Baronets: John M; Graham M; Anthony H
New Knights: Tim H; Jacob R
New Esquires: Gavin F; Geoff P; Jeremy H, and Robert R at his first LXG meeting!
Well done everyone! The most points gained at this meeting were 48, by Leanne J who now sits third overall in the rankings.
The two-day Summer Legends, including double points Saturday, certainly had a big effect on the rankings for A Game of Games. Some people were able to skip whole ranks and speed ahead. Also we have our first three barons.
Eddie C managed this feat thanks to the new organiser points, and running a 19 player Warhammer Fantasy tournament over Summer Legends. David K and Adrian R managed the same by playing lots of games on both days!
Congratulations also to our new Baronets and Baronetesses; Jason C, Leanne J, Jeremy N, and Courtney J. They have all exceeded 100 points to achieve this.
We have eight new Knights; Keith D, Ross vS, Graham M, John M, Terry K, Alex S, Barbara K, and Lance A. Barbara and Lance did not stop at Esquire on their way to knighthood, but jumped straight from Novice!
Speaking of Esquires we have two new ones; Megan L and Liam P.
Well done to everyone! See the full standings at the Game of Games page.
A busy start to the year, with twenty-eight club members gaining in points this month. We also have our first member to reach the rank of Baronet – Adrian R, whose total score is now exactly 100, the minimum needed to reach that rank. Congratulations Adrian! Adrian played War Machine, Quarriors, and Magic: The Gathering this month.
We also have three new knights – Courtney J, David M and Alex D, and two new Esquires, Daniel McG (at his first meeting, no less!) and Angela C. Well done all!
Next month is a full weekend meeting for Summer Legends. On the Saturday, all games played will be worth double points for A Game of Games, so be sure to come along for your chance to charge up the rankings!
