The day started off with a relatively small number of keen gamers, but by the time I'd finished my first real life Nations: The Dice Game play, the room was full and getting fuller. Rob and I had to leave before dinner, and the room was fairly humming by then.

Add your plays, and what you saw being played if you like.

This got some plays variously with me, Blake, Rob and Steveg and others, and there was a tight nearly draw between Rob and me.

Books are great if you can keep them up!

I think this was the version that Jess had out? Thanks for teaching this one Jess, very well explained and organised and we enjoyed it!

Wow, El Grande with card drafting. I found it pretty good, and would play again. It seemed to agree with antiussentiment as I think he took out the win. :-)

Jess and co played this waiting for us to finish Nations the Dice Game.
I didn't hear much roaring. Very polite rampaging it seems.

First up Tegan, Tim, Simon and myself played this, with the Imperial Settlers: Why Can't We Be Friends expansion. It was Simon's first play (and his first WABA I think).

Factions were Tegan as the Egyptians, Simon as the Barbarians, Tim as the Romans and myself as the Japanese.

I got off to a great start but unfortunately ran out of steam towards the end. I messed up a few key actions but in the end it was a pretty tight game, with Tim winning by about five points.

I still really enjoy this game, and it's older brother 51st State.

Next up we were joined by Jason for a five player game of this light auction / deduction game. This was my first time playing with the advanced side of the board and the Investor cards, which give each player a unique ability.

I can't remember who won, but it definitely wasn't me!

Next up Tim suggested this light game (sort of) based on Survive: Escape from Atlantis! for the same group.

You're trying to move your aliens to the planet surface... and there's a jetpack... and you have to move the moon... and...

...urgh...

This game was terrible.

After dinner Tegan, Simon, Warren, Ernest and myself played two games of this Carl Chudyk classic. After a quick teaching session (it was Simon's first time playing) we played two really great games. Tegan won the first with an impressive vault score, and I won the second, having shortcut my way to a high vault score and having only built one Wooden building.

This is now my most played game, and after 56 plays it's showing no signs of loosing its appeal. It plays GREAT from two up to five players and every game plays out differently. Looking forward to my next 50 plays

To finish off the same group played four games of this great deduction/bluffing game. I now know that Ernest claims he doesn't understand the game when he's a Werewolf or Tanner. The first two games were won by Tanners, which is pretty unusual. I always enjoy this game, and find it gets better the more you play it in one sitting.

Greg and I played 2 fun games of the Waterloo scenario, swapping sides. The French won both times despite impressive British musketry.

Did a bit of teaching on Saturday.

First up saw a group of four reading the rules to this so I jumped started them into the game before leaving them to it.

Next stop, a couple of people tackling the rules to this. We grabbed another person and I joined them for a four player teaching game.

Was a good game with their scores something like 28, 27 and 26.

Managed a four player game of my recently arrived kickstarter.

Easy to set up and teach, not so easy to play well. Thanks to Mark, Christophe and Elaine for playing.

Who says kickstarter games never get played!

As part of my aim to learn and play more games in the WABA collection, I learnt, taught and played this game. The mechanisms are actually not too complicated and one of the interesting decisions to make is whether to go straight for the city or try to get the benefits from the outer cities.

In the end, it was Mark who won on 85, over Jess on 70, Christophe 68 and me 51.

This almost real-time trading game saw a play at this meet with the full complement of 7 players, with some learning for the first time (I think Mr X Keith, Celine and Christophe were the first time players). The players were me, Jess, Mark, Blake, Mr X, Celine and Christophe. I think Mr X Keith, Christophe and Jess were tied for the most coins (9), with Christophe winning the tiebreak.

A 4 player game with Mark, Keith and Blake to finish off the evening.

I won which was a surprise to everyone including me - I was convinced that Mark had an unassailable lead but as it turns out 36 points from the building lord was just enough to put me a couple of points ahead of him at the end.
