Welcome...to my Shed!

A quiet start: bleary eyes and bacon butties then, having set out the tables and chairs, we started with something light: Fast Forward: FORTRESS.

In summary: Set collection and use a set to 'take over' a fortress card; be the player with the most Fortresses or the lowest-numbered fortress (if tied on numbers) when the third 'Hour glass' appears and you win. Each game digs deeper in to the deck...



As previously-promised to Arthur, we played Scythe with five (no 'wind gambit' due to too many noobs/haven't played for a whiles). Arthur stayed on the table for Adrenaline (and, from all accounts, made blood-thirsty work of his Chainsaw and Sledgehammer!)



Mid-morning and the room is full, warm and free-flowing with an utterly-delicious Plum Porter!



Calimala was probably the Game of the Weekend; almost constantly in-play and exceedingly well-received (great work, Mr Fabio Lopiano!)



It wasn't all the "serious stuff", you know?!



Alex and Mr Alex baked me a delicious gluten-free fruit cake..albeit with dubious decorative flourishes.



Montana, Tulip Bubble and Billy Burnham's favourite Cheating Moth: universally regarded as 'Meh', universally confusing and universally dumb fun respectively.



Santa Fe Rails and the gloriously-gorgeous, most-beloved Glory to Rome. I would play GtR later, after our enormous curry supper, with a group who didn't need any teaching at all: it was totes emosh (and I'm not even joking).



All back to the Shed! Well, back to the kitchen and the garden of Castle Boydell for a slap-up spicy supper and songs around the bonfire! It was especially brilliant to be leading a crocodile of 40 people from The Kings Arms and through the housing estate to our Home! The fresh air certainly did us all the world of good!
