David, Andrew and his son joined me in the inaugural play of City of Iron, my latest purchase, courtesy of a recent trip to the US. It's an interesting mix of resource management, city building and deck building, not quite like any other game I've played. I was slow to get my gold and science engine going, by which time Andrew and his son had shot ahead, and they ended up fighting for the victory with the son beating the father! Enjoyable game but once you get behind its hard to make it up. Worth a few more plays so i'll bring it to the next couple of WABA meets.

Played 2 games of this. I'd never played it before so the first game was a bit of a disaster. The second one I managed to win by cordoning off about 5% of the board all to myself. Those pieces are the most delicious looking I've played with since the King of Tokyo energy cubes.

After Eclipse I participated in a "learning game" of this. It was OK but a few incorrect rules and assumptions early on led to some poor decisions. Not really my thing.

This is a very odd game. I think it would be easier once you've played a few times and know what to expect. How you're supposed to know in 4 actions that you were meant to sing while using your left hand is a little beyond me. An interesting idea but one that I don't think lived up it's potential.

I still love this game. It's simple and quick and you can have a conversation while you play it. Our game was cut short by one player having to catch a bus but we as we all had 2 tokens of affection we all felt just a little loved

I've just spent two weeks making individual deck boxes for my copy so I was very happy to teach Sentinels before going home. Tachyon, The Wraith and Legacy faced off against Baron Blade in Megalopolis with each bringing their own flare and abilities to the table. I got to finish off Blade with an epic 6 card 30 damage Tachyon combo so that made me doubly happy.

I got in 3 games of this. The first saw Christophe going berserk in Tokyo and after doing 6 damage to Penny and I in one turn he pushed his luck a little too far and couldn't finish the job the following turn. I won this one by being the last monster standing.

The next 2 games I played with Ernest, Dan, Ing and Tim. I can't remember who won these games, perhaps because of the solid thrashing I received and the resulting head trauma.

I can't recommend this game enough to people who haven't played it yet, fun for gamers and not-so-gamers alike.

Played a five player game , teaching two new players.

They tied for the win. As there is no provision for determining a winner in a tie, the game was resolved with a round of rock-paper-scissors.

Next up I taught Ian, Tim H and Tim T this quick, light and sometimes frustrating little deckbuilding-race game hybrid.

You are salmon racing up a river to spawn, trying to avoid bears and getting too sleepy. The cards you play are either the direction you move or special actions such as sending everyone back along the current.

Fun and quick, with a lot of different board combinations to make it longer/shorter easier/harder.

Very fun.

I won this one, but it was really close!

Next up we (Ian, Tim H and I) played the heaviest game we played of the day, CO2.

Everyone is a green energy company trying to make the most money while also trying to stop the world from ending.

There's a lot of things to consider, and a couple of poor graphic design choices mar an otherwise pretty looking game.

It feels pretty thematic and everything fit together well, all though the market part was maybe a little bit muddier than it could have been. I am sure a little cheat-sheet for it would go a long way.

Anyway, I really enjoyed it. Was a little long with two first timers and a rules teach (about three hours) but would get quicker with repeated plays.

I won my third and final game of the day. Ah well, I had a good run.

Then Ian taught four of us a game of Sushi Go, which I have also just got a copy of.

It a very fast and even lighter game of 7 Wonders.

You might wonder who would want a lighter game of 7 Wonders, but it is really fun, and once you know 7 Wonders, you forget how difficult it is to introduce to new players - Especially non-gamers.

I am really glad to have a copy. I know it's going to go over well in our work lunch-time games.

Um, I'm not sure who won this except that it wasn't me.

A friend from work (Kirsten), her partner (Jason) and her sister (Tegan) showed up when we were halfway through CO2, so they went off and played a few games with other folks, and we (the above mentioned plus myself, Ian and Tim H) played a game of King of Tokyo.

I was Kirsten, Jason and Tegan's first game of it.

As always a) Ian cares not for points or his own health, and just wants to smash everyone, leading to him being knocked out fairly early. b) I trash talked a lot, but still managed to be in the final two.

I was defeated by Tegan in a very exciting (lucky) roll.

Kirsten asked how she could get a copy at the end of the game, so I'll take that as a sign that it was a hit.

Getting towards the end of the night, and my brain was a little fried, so I pushed for a lighter (sillier) game of Feudality. It's by designer Tom Wham, famous for crazy games like Kings & Things.

It was everyone's first game.

It if fairly simple, but there's one step of the game that has a lot of alternatives that seem over-whelming when you teach the game - Especially when they are quite chaotic/random in their results.

In actuality, you have a grid with coordinates that relate to two dice. You roll them and you choose one of the tiles your pawn ends up adjacent to and it pays off. Then you draw and event card (hugely random and swing-y) and then offer some new tiles to buy. Then you may choose two of your own tiles to activate. Then you feed your people and the next person does the above steps.

It won't go over well in every group, and it isn't a game for every situation, but at that point, with this group, it was super fun. At least I liked it a lot.

Ian earned the game-winning number of points.
