These games were played on 11 August 2012 in this unofficial Olympics-themed/inspired meet.

The day started slowly, but as the hours ticked on, more people came until at one stage, we had to take out more tables. Whether you joined us from the start, came later or didn't manage to make it, see what was played here and if you were there, add what you played.

Inspired by the Olympics, we ran a competition of Reiner Knizia's Decathlon, with the winner winning 100 dice. In short, Rowland unfortunately only managed 191 to be at the foot of the standings, Oliver managed 3rd with 234, Clayton in I think his first WABA meet came 2nd with 235 and the winner, managing 237 was me.

For more details, see the session report of the event, including lots of stats and some comments, here.

Particular mention must be made of Scott M who set a new world record in the 100m with 37.

I started my deliberate sports-based games playing with this good racing game (it's vaguely sports related). Despite my protests, the others decided to inflict first time player Scott with the harder side. This obviously also worked against me as the final scores after the three races was:
1. Richard (24)
2. Olvier (19)
3. Nyssa (16)
4. Scott (13) [first time]
5. Jason (12)
6. Ernest (6)

Highlights (lowlights?) include Oliver having a huge lead in the first race (going to the second bouy while the rest of us were still rounding the first) before throwing the win away with too much power forcing him to go in strange directions, and my safe 3rd place in the 2nd race being foiled when trying to go past the line in speed and style, and instead being forced to make a huge, unnecessary circle as two boats nipped past.

I continued by sports games-based day with seven racers daring race in a a one lap, winner takes all race. Judson, Clayton and Scott were the new players in this race. It was a far too short race as some people (*cougheveryoneelsecough*) decided to drive very fast. At the presentation ceremony, the places were as follows:
1. Judson [first time]
2. Oliver
3. Warren
4. Nyssa
5. Clayton [first time]
6. Scott [first time]
7. Ernest

I had never played with 7 players before and it made for a very crowded dungeon with at times 21 characters trying to make for the exit, avoiding the monster. I was happily surprised at how much 'negotiation' there was into moving characters so that the monster manipulating the monster to take out people in the lead. One of my characters reached the exit first, but the threats for the win came first from Judson, then Oliver, then Nyssa.

Clayton pulled a game stopping move no one expected by placing a character right in front of the door, preventing both Judson and Nyssa moving through for a win (they didn't have enough movement points to go through in one turn). This actually opened up a spot for me to win if no one else paid attention. By this stage, everyone had got one character out but in the midst of trying to stop Oliver, Nyssa and Judson, my attempts to keep Clayton's character to stay as a doorstop failed (for me to win), Oliver's idea to move a block stopping me as well, and Clayton not only stopped Judson and Nussa winning, but managed to win for himself over Warren, Nyssa, Ernest, Judson (first time), Scott (first time) and Oliver.

Nyssa wanted to play this game, Oliver, Nyssa, Scott and I sat down for this game. We muddled through the explaination for Scott's first time and then prompty hit the haunt with our second haunt role with very little of the house explored. Scott turned out to be the traitor (Let Them In, scenario 11). Such is the beauty of WABA that Scott was able to go to someone else not in the game to ask questions.

I died on Scott's first turn as the traitor and while Oliver and Nyssa managed to get close to our objective, Scott was eventually victorious.

Note: I have deliberately not included details of the scenario of both the group and the traitor so as not to spoil it for future players.

In this light, tile-laying, treasure collection, screwing each other up game, Rowland, Mark, Warren Clayton, Kim and myself entered the lair to try get 10 golds first. The expected hijinks occured, including people stealing golds from each other, teleporting to beneficial tiles and using the Drakon to remove gold from others. In the end, Rowland reached 10 golds to win over Mark, Warren, Clayton, Ken and myself.

I got in one last sports game with this light racing game. We had the full 6 players for this game, so no team colour was a mere filler and everything counted. After three races, often filled with 'take that' moves, revenge pit stops after cars crashing out and moving cars in front just to spite others (all in good nature of course), the final standings were as follows:

1. Ernest 26 points (Race 1 6+4pts; race 2 6pts; race 3 10pts)[1 1st, 2 2nds, 1 3rd]
2. Rowland 17 points (Race 1 10pts; race 2 3+1pts; race 3 3pts)[1 1st, 2 4ths, 1 6th]
3. Mark 11 points (Race 1 0pts; race 2 10pts; race 3 1pt)[1 1st, 1 6th]
=4. Clayton 9 points (Race 1 1pt; race 2 4pts; race 3 4pts)[2 3rds, 1 6th]{First Time}
=4. Tim 9 points (Race 1 3pts; race 2 0pts; race 3 6pts)[1 2nd, 1 4th]
6. Ivan 6pts (Race 1 2pts; race 2 2pts; race 3 2pts)[3 5ths]{First Time}

Got in a play of this with four as a relaxant after a massive game of Virgin Queen.

Fairly simple trick taking card game...Roger, Breaker and Eric joined in.

The beauty of this game ( now OOP) is that it is quick to teach and plays pretty quickly. You basically fight for Convoys but you can do so as either Axis or Allied and table talk/scheming is encouraged. Deals can be done to share spoils, but they don't have to be binding.

After recounting a previous game where I did the dirty on players, Eric pulled the same trick right at the end...I still managed the win over Breaker by a few points.

Memmi and I played two games of Memoir '44, both sides of Saint Mere-Eglise.

With me as the Allies, I secured a swift victory against the Axis, though Memmi was able to gain 2 of the 4 required victory tokens which was quite a good show.

When I played the Axis, I could not see any way they can possibly win (though people do it) and decided to instead take a defensive position and hold Memmi off as long as I could (it helped having the worst cards in the history of the world - sigh).

In the end I did manage to drag it out, but Memmi won, and I didn't even kill a single one of her invading forces.

10. Board Game: Talisman (Revised 4th Edition) [Average Rating:6.54 Overall Rank:1315]

We had a four player Talisman game going between me, Memmi, Craig, and Shaun. It was our first time, and it lasted 4-5 hours.

All of our alignments switched from good/evil evil/good by the first hour, some were turned into toads, or had annoying movement-limiting Poltergeists attached. There was plenty of thievery and back-stabbery going on as well!

Somewhere near the third/fourth hour Craig was becoming really powerful with the help of an (evil!) life-accruing weapon, but had to leave. Memmi had also hoarded a ridiculous pile of almost useless gold - lost it all - and then regained it all again.

But in the end Shaun was the first to get to the Crown Command and start murdering us all in cold blood. Memmi quickly followed and engaged him in combat but died, and I also reached the middle and fought but died.

It was a great game and a great tale. The only downsides were the length (it really needs food breaks) and that there aren't many cards in the massive Adventure deck - we shuffled it 3x throughout the game and so had pretty much seen everything it had to offer, same with the spells and other objects.

It might be better with some expansions.

Terry taught this one to Tim and myself. Very similar card play mechanics to Condottiere and Taj Mahal. Terry won with strong middle period play and though the scores were spread it was somewhat in question who was going to win right up until the last round.

Tim taught this one to Rowland, Terry and myself.
I really enjoyed the game, but I am a 18XX fan anyway and this certainly scratched the train game itch for me. Though there are no shares and map, the game is like an 18XX in the management of the spaceships which have carrying capacities which increase as they become more advanced. In addition some of the earlier ships become obselete and can no longer be used when the later ships get purchased. The management of this transition and decision as to which ships to buy and when are central to the game.
Tim won with about 175 or so points, Terry and I were closely matched in the mid 150s and Rowland was not too far behind after getting in an extra run by getting into the dock just before Tim arrived to announce endgame.

Fantastic combination of cards for the last two rounds made it an even more intriguing game than usual.

Gus, Mark, John, Greg, Steve and I were all virgins to this mini-monster of a game covering the religious wars in the late 16th century.

We managed to get in 2 turns out of 7 in this learning game over 4 hours!

I'm glad we did as we quickly found out how some powers are near an automatic victory if unchecked and the importance of leaving something in the reserve.

The Ottomans (Steve) ignored Vienna, defeated the Spanish navy for control of the Mediterranean and gained control of the Venetians through diplomatic intrigue.

The Spaniards (Gus) stayed aloof in Turn 1, gathered mountains of treasure from their unmolested possessions in the New World and converted this to a large card hand for Turn 2. After watching England invade France, he sailed the Spanish Armada that wasn't the ARMADA and conquered London and southern England.

The English (Mark) took control of the troublesome Irish and Scots in Turn 1. Turn 2, scorning Spanish treasure ships, he sends Captain Hawkins on an audacious raid on Huguenot Rochelle and with tricksy card play almost captures Paris for an automatic military victory.

The French (Greg) was dismembered on Turn 1 (poor diplomacy ) by the Holy Roman Empire, Huguenot rebellion and English predation. Paris was lost to the Huguenots on Turn 1. Bounced back in Turn 2 by allying with the HRE and recapturing Paris.

The Holy Roman Empire (Roger) wrested Metz off the French in Turn 1. Patronized scientists who turned out to be charlatans. Sent Heinzlein the not famous German pirate to the New World for fruitless raids on the Spanish colonies. Married Anna of Saxony off to William of Orange but sadly she died in childbirth. Convinced the Pope to join the Empire even though the Emperor was secretly Protestant.

The Protestants (John) quickly digested the religious rules and the Huguenots successfully rebelled in France. The Netherlands was heavily garrisoned by Spanish Catholic troops but by turn 2 half of the Netherlands was Protestant although remained under Spanish political control. William of Orange, glad to be rid of Anna remained a bachelor to the end despite his best efforts and good eligibility rating - Elizabeth I didn't even give him a glance.

Turn 3 would have introduced assassination, espionage, informants and other political events to rock the European world.

By 4pm, all major powers were mentally exhausted and wondered if they could have had 3 games of El Grande in the time spent instead.

Still, very enjoyable and looking forward to play by email.

17. Board Game: Robber Knights [Average Rating:6.15 Overall Rank:3284]
Karl Schreiber

Played with Opals. Opals won... I'm a perpetual loser unfortunately.
Technically we didn't play this game at the WABA meet, but Opals did purchase it there, and we got a game in almost immediately after. I just wanted to say a few things.
Robber Knights doesn't rate too highly on BGG, but I quite like this game! It's very simple and quick, yet versatile, playing kind of like a hybrid of a Carcassone and Chinese Checkers/Checkers.
Each player has a number of sequential tiles that they lay edge to edge. Upon drawing a castle tile, you can play your knights to conquer territories by deploying them in a straight line from that castle. The strategy is in how you lay your territory and castle tiles--some of which confer higher scores when conquered and some of which require higher numbers of knights to conquer--and how many knights you play to secure the territories. You can play your knights over that of other players to snag their turf from them.

What I liked:
-Fast and simple. A great time filler between playing longer games.
-Strategic. There are a number of strategies which can stop other players from taking certain territories, but you have to be mindful of how many knights you play and how many your opponent has played, because you can never get them back once they're on the board.
What I didn't like so much:
-I think the two player game can be a bit skewed, because the score difference is usually a close thing and luck plays a larger hand in the final turns when your tiles and knights are running out.
-Every player has the same number and type of tiles, and they come out in sequences of roughly 5, so you pretty much know how many castles they have left and can make a fairly good prediction of what is going to come out on their turn.

Definitely not game of the year material, but I liked the early stages of the game, where that it makes you think about how best to set things up for the inevitable land grab later in the game. The graphics were nice and the game doesn't take up much space. Good fun.
Thanks.

Myself and Tegan played a fairly quick two player game of this. This was only our second time playing and I tried a new (for me) strategy of almost exclusively using the build favour. It worked pretty well mid game but I neglected the castle towards the end and allowed Tegan to place SEVEN spaces, overtaking me by about ten points. A lot of people seem to think this doesn't work well with two but I disagree. It does make it a kinder game though.
