It's been a very long time since I've played Trains and I had forgotten how good it is. It is of course essentially Dominion with a board but the board (actually, a map on which you are building rails and stations to score points) turns the game from simply 'making a really efficient card engine' (Ha, "engine"... geddit?! Oh never mind) to one in which you are also racing against your opponents to lay claim to the most valuable spots on the map as soon as possible. It's a brilliant game that plays at a cracking pace.

Last night, Tom showed us how to play the game properly, and he showed no mercy. It was a very impressive win; well done chap!

Final score: Tom 58 (blimey!), Julian 16, me 16, Andrew 14

The doctor told the five survivors, "We need more samples".

We only know what happened from the hastily written diary entries...

Only two of the four warriors were actually brave enough to enter (and survive) the dungeon, while the other two shouted words of encouragement while hiding behind a nearby tree.

Final score: Tom 2, Julian 1, Andrew 0, me 0
