Warren taught Leah, Kent, myself and someone else who's name I've forgotten (sorry!) this nice euro about expanding your civilisation across the world. This starts off nice and slow but ramps up pretty quickly as you gain more population and actions through buildings, but it's still very easy to play and turns were nice and quick.

Leah opted to use the slavery cards early on, which give a significant boost to your production but are worth -1 point at the end of the game. Luck for me because I won by that 1 point!

The same person whose name I can't remember taught Leah, Andrew and myself this deck building word game next. It works very similarly to Dominion, except that each of your cards are either single or double letters. There's a wild letter which is always available to use (a vowel), and you have wild cards in your hand. You spell out the best word you can, with each letter card played giving you money to buy new cards. Some of the letter cards also have special abilities (such as double score, trashing cards etc.).

I thought it was pretty good, but went on for far too long. This can be adjusted by reducing the cards in certain decks though.

To finish out the night Mal, Pete, Jason and myself played this. I had my first go as the Barbarians, Mal was the Romans, Pete the Egyptians and Jason the Japanese.

Throughout the game myself and Jason were ahead, and matching each other point for point. Mal fell behind as his roman scoring cards never made an appearance. In the final turn or two Pete's scoring engine started turning and he quickly caught up to myself and Jason, winning the game in the end.

I still really enjoy this game, but I do think that the luck of the card draw can be devastating for some factions, mainly the Romans.

Richard taught a few people this game and we all quickly got onto card drafting our food. At the end of the game, I ended up winning on 40, over Brandon 39, Lani 36, Steve 31 and Richard 28.

Richard and I refreshed the rules and played with the expansion in what we agree is effectively Sim City the boardgame. He trashed me 96 to 58.

Alistair watched for part of our game, picking it up enough that he was able to play in a three player game straight after. He did so well that he managed to win 104 to Richard's 74 and my 59.

I taught and played in two games of this.

Must have been a hit as I saw my learners with it out two times later in the day.
