With the dust not quite settled, and our defeats and improbable victories still fresh in everyone's sleep-deprived minds, here for posterity (not sure posterity will thank me) I present a record of what was played at our biennial decampment to the South coast.

This could be a long list. Perhaps keep duplicates to comments to prevent unwieldiness.

We started on Thursday. Three days just isn't enough.

Sadly, I started with this, and cubes flew everywhere. Everywhere except Ronan's mat, that is.

Unfortunately the bad start continued. It's pleasant enough, and mercifully quick, but we were collectively underwhelmed.

Finally a game I liked! A lot as it happened. This is a great little game and a fun use of dice. Might have to pic up a copy.

Still not winning. This is a theme...

I wasn't very well on Thursday so went to bed 'early'. Not before playing this great little push your luck card game though.

Friday and the Japanese hipster games came out in earnest, courtesy of Lister-san.

This was quick and fun and I wish I'd pre-ordered it. Hopefully it will get picked up and reprinted.

I do have a copy of this and this was my second play. Still lost. Seems almost impossible, but will keep trying!

We now enter the realms of the weird. Hang on, I think we were here already.

Anyway, we played until Karl managed to score one point. Bonkers but fun for five minutes.

Brilliant trick taking game that messes with everyone's mind. Donna claimed not to have any idea what was going on then promptly won.

Decided we'd had enough card games and moved on to one of the big Essen releases. Our game went on a bit too long but I did enjoy it and would like to play again. First win of the weekend too - by quite a margin.

Obviously after that I needed to light relief, so turned to this year's Ring L Ding. Just as batty and fun. I seem to be much worse at this one though.

I learnt from previous Eastbournes and took a brief rest before launching into the evening's gaming. I might have stayed in bed rather than be confronted with real time bidding. Good game but my brain can't cope with these sort of things!

Terrible last round decision cost me the game, but hey, it was actually a lot better than all the brown and medievalness and Feld suggested it would be. One action at a time meaning it clips along and there's even some player interaction. A good one to finish with before dinner.

After dinner we spent the first three rounds working out what we were doing and by then it seemed too late, although I still managed second. Decent, would like to play again.

Dan wasn't even there and he injected his tournaments into proceedings!

For the second year running I made the final and came fourth. All luck, clearly.

After my second double portion breakfast in a row, I managed to coax the Fluxes into not one but two, yes TWO new games.

This was the first and I think John was rather taken with it. Barry less so.

My big Essen buy and I loved it. Took far too long to get going with my engine so by the time I had the wherewithal to speed through the mountains Gwen had already won. Want to play again soon.

It seemed like wherever you went, someone was playing Concordia, so I had to try it. Another game that plays different and better than the art might have you believe. We played very, very fast and I didn't lose! That's about as positive as I can be I guess, but I enjoyed the game a lot.

I love this quick little game and it was fun to teach and then catch the gleeful recognition from Sherine as she realised just how to screw people over at the right moment. Sadly that was me, although it didn't stop me winning.

My winning streak continued with this rather nice abstract. I can't see it getting too many more plays, but enough.

Taught this to Shrine and Paul A. Went down well and we had a lot of fun, although it started to drag a bit as we spent most of the time dicking each other over. Sherine eventually won with the most popular zoo.

I've been put off playing this for ages due to the D&D on the cover, but it's a really good WP game.

Played this twice over the weekend. Romped to victory on my first play then Chris screwed me in the last round on my second to deny me victory.

This is a great shortish Euro and I'll play a few more times I'm sure but I worry about too much replay value.

Eastbourne wouldn't be Eastbourne without a massive game of this, and I joined for a couple of rounds but didn't last long in either of them.
