Tim and I were 30/40 minutes late because my selfish baby decided to nap too late.

When we arrived Ian, Tegan and Pete were just wrapping up a game of Augustus, so Ian taught Tim, Karl and I the rules and we played a six player game.

It's gamers bingo. There are powers and decisions to make, but it's light and plays really fast. The 'town crier' draws discs from a bag and players cover a symbol on one of their three cards. If you complete card, you add it to your score pile and possibly take an action, if the card allows it.

There can be good combos if you get the right cards too.

Tegan shut everyone down very quickly and took the win.

Fun and a game I would play again for sure.

Karl hopped ship so we played a five player game of Bruxelles. Tim and I were new to the game about art collection and building construction, I guess. The theme is pretty lightly integrated, but the game is definitely fun enough that it doesn't matter.

It's worker placement, mostly, with a kind-of-auction element, sort-of-set-collection and some area control... It's a great mix of mechanisms that gels together well.

Didn't run long with 5 players, either.

Ian left us all in the dust, I think.

Next, the same five broke out Lancaster, one of my favourites that I haven't had to the table in a while. We also added in the new laws expansion.

The game moves along very quickly. I feel like the voting with the new laws seemed a little more haphazard. Most of the new laws seem to benefit one player and no one else, so they would get voted out, or all players, so they'd get voted in. It rarely seemed close. Still, I'd give them another go, or perhaps mix them in with the base laws.

Other than that, Pete managed to take the lion's share of the end game bonuses for the win.

We finished with a game of 7 Wonders with all of the expansions. Most were familiar with Leaders, but I had to run through Cities really quickly, and then we were off.

Pete went heavily into sciences, and... blue buildings, I forget what they are called... Civil buildings?

And everyone at the table thought he had it, but it turned out he was in third place, Tim in second, three points behind the winner, me. I earned a lot of points from my leaders and my black cards (City cards? I also forget) and luckily had cause Tim to lose three points during the game by making him discard money he couldn't afford to lose.

Great Game. A very pleasant 5 hour game played by me(Gary) ,Jon and Steve.
Romans failed to do the business on this one though, not sure how balanced the 3 player games is but still a great game.

First play of this game, despite owning it. Some mechanics similar to Catan but I found it a lot more enjoyable. Pulling off a 42 pt win was awesome too

I didn't play this, but I saw Terry playing it with his daughter and Renato's children. Not only was Terry playing it, but he also added appropriate sound effects. Sorry I didn't have a camera to record this for YouTube. Looks like the junior version of Roborally. I am almost looking forward to being a grandfather, so I can play this with the grandkids... (And sound effects should be mandatory for all games - adds another level of enjoyment to the play.)

I showed Zack and two others how to play this - I am familiar with aMAZEing Labyrinth, and the extra wrinkles for Master were easy to master.

I played a strategy of hanging onto my wands, so I could acquire the high valued items. But this unravelled when I moved the wrong wizard (the cream one instead of the straw-coloured one) and no-one picked this up in time. Sigh. I was so dismayed by this that I don't know who won. The wrinkles make for a more interesting game, but this game can be very frustrating. If I play it again, I'll play with the red or blue master wizard pieces!

I played this one with Christian, Kylie and a younger player who's name I forget (sorry), and again with another group; Penny, Christian and ... drawing a blank (sorry again).

The second game ended up as quite a fierce competition good fun

My first couple of games of this - we chose the game where you use three cards as inspiration for completing a story
