Apparently Tom is too lazy to do it himself, so here goes. I was on the same table all night so didn't get a good look at everything that was going on. Please add what I've missed!

Started off with George teaching me this one. It's a simple spatial game on a 3x3 grid, but with Kanai's hallmark of characters with special powers. I liked that the pool of characters to choose from is different each game, so that even though it's perfect information, there's a lot of variety.

I've been promising to teach Tom this classic for ages, and Richard and George joined us too. I got into a pissing war with Richard for Tower, which gave every impression of merging early, but in fact stuck around until the very last turn of the game. Suffice to say, this did not work out well for me

Richard led another table of this with his fancy 3D version. Nice to see it getting the attention it deserves!

We kept the Sackson theme rolling with his excellent deduction game. My system seemed to be working really well, but then George won. I really enjoy playing the game but it can be a bit anti-climactic for the non-winners as they don't really know how close they got or how well they did.

Finished up with three games of Hanabi in which we took turns to be completely incompetent. A horrible card-order in the first game (only two of the 1s showed up for ages) led to us blowing ourselves up. The second was a reasonable 19, the third a fairly poor 17, not surprisingly considering I found out afterwards that my 'understanding' of my cards had gone completely awry half-way through!

Started off with Robin teaching us this, I'd played once before but ages ago and everyone else was new. I'd forgotten how good a game this is, about an hour long but with plenty of tough decisions. Next time I must remember though that getting all the money in the world is useless if I don't actually bother to get some points.

A quick 5 player game of Perudo followed Puerto Rico, the less said about my performance the better. I only survived as long as I did as the player to my left seemed unwilling to call the rubbish I found myself uttering.

Managed to get a few more people to try out this, confirming my previous impressions that's it's a neat filler without doing anything particularly spectacular. At some point I should probably add in the psychic dinosaurs, doesn't look like they'd add too much extra complication.
