First up for me was a couple of games of this new party game.

I quite like it, but not knowing all the locations made it extremely hard to be the spy. It would be nice if there was a cheat sheet for each player.

Next up this great little game. Kind of an worker placement with a bit of area control.

If you like medium-light euros I'd say give this one a shot.

This was my first play of this game, which I found "ok". I made some bad decisions early on and found myself with very little volition. I'd try it again though

Finally we played this game. Which was a bit rubbish. Some of the mechanisms were a little clunky especially the trade gold for points for gold at the end one.

A personal favourite of mine that I managed to stuff up teaching even though I've produced player aids for this game.

You get 2 Faction and 2 Common cards at the start of the game. But you only draw 1 Faction card when starting a new round (not 2) and draft 2 commons (in any of the many drafting variations).

I'll remember now

Tim, Aaron, Jason and I played this space 4x game.
I enjoyed the first couple of games, but I think I'm over it now. My racial power sucked. One tiny extra building while everyone else had "instant win".

I noticed lots of Drakon being played that day.
I'm not a big fan, but any game with some evil "take that" in it gets at least a thumbs up from me.

A push your luck(?), engine building(?) card game. We started slow, not sure how exactly to play. If games took that long I wouldn't be interested to play again, but by the time we finished we figured out pretty much how it should be done, and I think future games would be done much quicker.

Overall, I think another just-ok game, in my opinion.

David, Kent, Siobhan and I played David's copy of Dominant Species; it was an epic 4 hour session which I ended up winning (as the insects), which was a bit of a surprise as I was miles behind before we did the final scoring. Good game but I would add a couple of Tim's suggestions to keep the play time down next time.
