Two games of this happened but the highlight had to be Chris' structurally reinforced board to ensure that there would be no slippage of tiles at any point during the game. Also, as most 5 player games are, looked to be rather vicious in terms of space to expand.

Played this for the second time after over a years gap from the first play. Still think it trails Agricola in the sheer tension stakes and Ora adds the geometrical planning to the navigating the web of buildings but despite lagging behind those to it was a highly enjoyable game.

Multiple plays for Cosmic as several people attempted to navigate the mass of negotiation and special powers.

Two games of Power Grid as well, one with Barry (Morgan not Fluxx) introducing it to some new comers and another where despite our warnings people let Scott win again.

With 10 people playing the looks of utter confusion I glimpsed were perhaps understandable, still they seemed to be enjoying it.

Firmly settled in now as a perennial favourite, looks to have overtaken Game of Thrones as the weekends number one choice for betrayal and backstabbing.

At only 30 mins perhaps you excuse the citizens for not noticing the massive smoking mountain in the rush when they're all settling down.

Amusing bunch of names maybe, I'll admit my prejudice is that there's unlikely to be a huge amount of game play though.

Many thanks to Alex for teaching me this though I'll admit I'm still not entirely sure what exactly the victory conditions are. Knowing this I perhaps predictably came last but would be certainly interested in playing again.

I know Avalon was further up the list but I was pleased to actually get a couple of games of basic Resistance, only 6 people and no special powers, which I certainly prefer to the massed 10 player ones. That said I was having a terrible day at it and probably sunk my teams chances in both of the games.

Extra fancy version with plastic bullets for health markers, while the card play can be amusing I always tend to find in this that basically who you are comes out pretty quickly anyway thus cutting out a lot of the suspense promised by the game

Can't believe I forgot to add this as I played it, a great game of Terra Mystica in which I just about hung on for a 1 point victory. Sympathies much go out to Tom who having brought the game was massively blocked on the first turn leaving his Nomads always trailing.
