1. Board Game: Löwenherz [Average Rating:7.05 Overall Rank:932]

Jan and I introduced this to Lihua and Dean. Vigorous discussion near the end of the game about how territory is conquered. This is only the second time I have played this game recently, but it is definitely growing on me. The mechanics are simple (select one of three possible actions, negotiate or bid if another player has selected the same action, take the action), but there are subtleties. I think next game I'll try and make a region late in the game - much harder for others to nibble at.

Jan introduced this to Lihua, Stuart, and myself.

An interesting game. Three traders wandering around five junks, enabling actions like buying a cargo, or getting money. And a selling acution at the end of each turn, where players try to turn goods into money, at whatever the current rates are (but only the highest offer gets the money).

The game played briskly, with lots of second-guessing at the selling stage.

Lihua came home strongly, scoring strongly for a junk that held a lot of her boxes. I came second - a good start, but I faded badly.

Jan provided us with guidance from the German rules. I noticed in reading a summary of the rules (sorry, can't find the reference now) that at the selling stage, if there are goods not bid on, there is another auction. We played with just one auction. A minor quibble - I enjoyed this game. Thanks to Jan for bringing it in.

This is apparently a remake of "Landlord". Since I haven't played the original, that was not relevant. Stuart, Jan, Lihua and I played this. Lots of action, with squatters moving in, demolitions, bombs, pinching tenants, and general mayhem.

Not sure who won this - I think it might have been Stuart, in a fairly close ending. Not me - I struggled to build sensible buildings, and my rich people perambulated from building to building with no loyalty at all.

Not a bad filler.

This is essentially a double-dip at GOPS. Jan, Lihua and I played this as my last game of the day. I've played this game once before with five or six. I much prefer it with three - removes much of the luck from the game, and leaves more room for guile and cunning. Of which I had sufficient to sneak home by 82 to Lihua's 81. Nice to go home on a winning note .

Rob and I took some people through the annual November memorial game.

This time we had set up missions that were secret even to the squadron mates. Picking up spies... flying through the lines for rear bombing raids...

Jerome and, um, another nice fellow bravely joined us for this one despite warnings of a (superficially) girly theme and the fact that we hadn't played it before.

I'd bought it on the strength of this review: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/709684/are-you-man-enoug... and I must say I was very pleased with it. Apart from a couple of rules glitches it went pretty smoothly and quickly.

It plays very nicely and is a real balancing act.

Rob and I had to go, unfortunately, but we left the game as Jerome and co wanted another try of it. I don't know how many other games of it were played.

We were trying to find a game for 6 people and Warren suggested this.

All in all a pretty good little game.

Still struggling to find a game for 6 we chanced upon this one.

Pretty cool, it does seem impossible to win as the saboteur though.

We ended the night with a game of this little beauty.

Weird game at one point we had this whole chain reaction of mind controls setup.

Lots of backstabbing and shenanigans.

Taught and played this one, including first time spaceperson Kate.

I had the game in the bag at then and then sneaky Kent handed over an alien artefact card giving him an extra ten points at game end to pass me.

The cheek!

Joined a group of three learning this game.

I snuck away for a win at the end thanks to my fisherman.

Taught 4 others this games.

It's a very interesting game with good spatial elements where you have to work out where to move your merchant and assistants.

Jason, Richard and I played this game in the evening. Memories include being separated from the others for a large part of the game, having to traipse up and down stairs, and managing to win!

Mark taught/retaught/refreshed my memory of how to play this as I faced off against similarly new/newish player Stuart. I used a mix of the starter red and blue decks, while Stuart used I think white and green? I managed to win both games.
