Rob and I, having missed the Claremont meeting and having the opportunity decided to visited the Thornlie meet for the full term, eager to try to bit that dastardly City of Chaos.

We brought our Fortune and Glory but City of Chaos ran true to form and ran over time. We were...well the survivors were very close to completing though.

We lent a group our India and Asia Ticket to Ride maps as well as Alvin and Dexter, but I don't know whether they were played in the end. After I died in City of Chaos I had a really lightning game of 7 Wonders which I won but I don't recall the scores.

A great session, and learning that the pizza place does GF pizza is useful. Fish and Chips were good too.

An astonishing game, if only for the amazing amount of money and heads that were floating around.

Ran long and some of us were killed right out of the game, me included, 6 squares away from getting to the Marble Minaret and the completing of my quest, and ending of the game.

One game of this at least was played, I think it was played more. Fast play and I won through a fortunate confluence of 2ndary resources, Science!, and 3 guilds that let you leech off your neighbours' trade, science and war cards.

One group had this set up three player, Rob and I were able to give the odd rules clarification. I think they were playing the Abduction scenario, where the Martians have to abduct the Allies. The Zarg beast came out and JoJo the bear was one of the protagonists, but I don't know who won in the end.

Meenu Meenu Meep.

Played this filler with Genevieve and Hong.
Thanks to Hongs extended drought and his help in pointing out a better play on my last turn I managed to pip him by a point!

Tim taught this new game to Andrew, Joff and myself. Having played Agricola and Le havre before it was relatively easy to pick up. I found it played much closer to Le havre than Agricola and enjoyed it. Andrew won with high value buildings but I was second having concentrated on collecting point scoring resources. I think further play will reveal deeper play now that we have some idea of what is to come.

Taught this one to Luke, and Genevieve played also. Experience really helps in this game and I won but Luke said how much he enjoyed the game and would like to pick it up one day.

8. Board Game: Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game [Average Rating:7.74 Overall Rank:66]

Roger: Helena Cain (Personal Goal: Stand and Fight)
Myself: Cally Tyrol (Final Five: Cylon Ships Activate; Personal Goal: Self-Destruction)
Richard: Tory Foster (Final Five: You are Executed)
Mal: Louanne "Kat" Katraine
Nathan: Kara 'Starbuck' Thrace (Cylon: Brig; Cylon: Treachery)

Originally scheduled for a BSG + Pegasus without Cylon Leaders goign to Kobol, we asked Nathan what combination he would like to play with (in addition to automatically being able to select Starbuck in our special rule for the game). It was thus that we went for BSG + Pegasus + Exodus (skill and loyalty) + CFB with Final Five and Personal Goals going to Kobol [+ extra 1 resource for all for Personal Goal + second destination for Cain's blind jump].

Amongst the memorable moments:
-Admiral Cain not wanting to save vipers, claiming that it was more important not to save them;
-Heavy suspicion falling on one of the two pilots;
-Me uncharacteristically willing to execute other players to know loyalties but not willing to get die myself;
-Fuel getting too close to 0, resulting in visits to Tylium Planets, giving jumps of 2,1,2,1,1,1;
-Me being targetted with the airlock and playing Political Prowess to save myself and the humans from having lots Cylon ships activate;
-(had I died, the next loyalty card would have either been Final Five: Whoever Examines is Executed or Personal Goal: Use Caution)
-Me seeing Nathan's loyalty card via a crisis, accusing him, not being able to shoot him and no one knowing who to trust;
-Starbuck revealing too late to give the other loyalty card to another player; and
-Humans managing to win.

Once again, it was another great game of BSG and a fitting way to send Nathan off.

[Game Combination 29
Pegasus: Yes
Exodus: Yes
CFB: Yes
Kobol/New Caprica/Ionian Nebula: K
CL: No
FF: Yes
PG: Yes]

It's not a bad game to go back to once in awhile, but I think I've moved on from my initial great like of it.

It's a good little (the box and pieces are actually quite small) game that is more cutthroat than the box would suggest.

Game 1: Warren over me, Richard, and Roland(?)
Game 2: Richard over Warren, me, Tyrone and Roland(?)
Game 3: Richard over Warren, me, Tyrone and Roland(?)
