It felt like a more subdued meet, but everyone there seemed to still be enjoying themselves. Add what you played and see what else was played.

I reconfirmed how bad I am at this game, pairing with Jason to loose to Richard and new player Oliver 775 to 1030.

Played a game of this really badly with Rob, Leece and Alex.

Two thirds of the way though the game I discovered I had overlooked one of my original destinations!

Lauren and I rolled this one out to waste a bit of time early on while we waited for a few more people to arrive. It looks really attractive on the table and has a bit of tactical depth to it. Lots of fun.

We played a four player game of this with Jan and Jocelyn. Having only played 2p before, the game was slightly less forgiving - especially when it came to placing your workers on the town 'rondel'. Building your little house on the prairie is quite rewarding, if a little brain burning. Jocelyn for the win!

We finished the morning with two quick games of High Society with Eric and Jan. Both times it came down to a game of chicken between the two big-spenders for the game, as to who had spent slightly more and would be eliminated to leave the other to sweep to victory. A simple but enjoyable and clever auction game.

Started with the new Stephan Feld game, Bora Bora. Taught it to Chris, Tim H and Jac.

It's a game of point grabbing - lots of different paths to potentially concentrate on. Sort of like Trajan, but a bit less brain burning.

I like it a LOT! Every one at the table also enjoyed the game.

I think Tim won this one, though we thought Jac had it sewn up. I came in third.

Taught this game that is in my top five favourites to the same group.

I played awfully. Really couldn't get going. I did manage to keep my poverty right down, but just wasn't earning enough points.

Third place again.

I THINK Chris won this one, but it might have been Jac. Don't remember.

Finally Jac taught us this game.

Now... What we didn't know is this game has some... Rulebook problems. A second version of the book has been released online apparently, but Jac didn't have that version.

And the designer has said maybe to not bother trying this game with Euro gamers who need to understand how the rules all fit together... Well, that was the group that Jac was trying to teach to.

I think we spent more time asking 'what happens if...' than playing the game. Within two rounds we had all discovered that Jac was the infected one AND had taken all of her infection cards.

Ah well, seems like there is probably a fun game in there, but it just didn't quite come together.

Powerboats!!!!!!!!!!!!
Had a 6 player race with Jason, Earnest, Richard, Opals, Oliver and myself.
Lots of blocking going on, but surprisingly few crashes. Really simple, yet tactical and fun.
I like it!

3 races = one game. Took about an hour and three quarters (Opals and I were newbies).

Played a couple of games with different players swapping in and out. One game was with the expansion with the knights in it... I'm not sure which that is.
Led to a nice arms race between Opals, Oliver and I, with a few knights actually meeting and wiping each other out.

I do not remember who won though!

Elaine taught this to Dean and Christophe, and I joined in. And just to show how good a teacher Elaine is, Dean won comfortably, followed by Dean.

Christophe had bought this along, so he taught it to me and Dean and Elaine. The mechanics had us working hard, and the game lasted for three hours, which is twice as long as it should take. Suggests that there is a steep learning curve. But we gradually got the hang of it. Dean showed that his win at Tobago was not a fluke by blitzing us - a score of 107. Christophe was impressed - he has never seen anyone get much more than 70 before.

Another one of those games where we say "I'd like to play that again" - but, alas, we probably never will. Perhaps my belated New Year's resolution for 2013 should be to, every month, play again the game I most enjoyed playing at the previous meeting. And my other resolution is to only play Dean at games he already knows - he does far too well at games he doesn't know. (At least, then, if he wins, I can claim he had previous experience.)
