Shay, Stephen and myself kicked off the day with this great card game about building paths of different types of trees through your Arboretum.

Really it's a tableau building game with a strong hand management element. Players are trying to arrange cards in their Arboretum to score the most points, but they also need to retain enough cards of the same tree type (colour) to grant them the ability to score that type (the player holding the highest sum of values in each colour at the end of the game earns the right to score that colour).

A simple game full of agonising decisions.

I can dead last, I have a feeling Shay won..?

Next up the same group was joined by Andrew for this Essen release about building lighthouses.

This is a resource management / area control (kind of) game with some nice decisions and some decent thought required to get the most out of your turns. It also doesn't provide any safeguards for inexperienced players accidentally leaving themselves with no workers for an entire turn, something to definitely make everyone aware of in advance for future plays.

Pretty sure everyone enjoyed this, even though I won.

Next up myself and Shay played this unique game about royal rabbits getting divorced. I really like this game, although the first play or two can seem very chaotic until you get to know the card powers. I especially like how the theme is evoked through the mechanisms, making me feel especially bitter when the scheming Princess turns my own sister against me, my own sister!! Well, at least she didn't get my dog or my stables.

Next up myself and Shay were joined by Leah to try out this worker placement game I've owned for a while, but had not yet played.

In this you're trying to gather support from six different tribes, which amounts to set collection, while expanding your tribe and killing the odd Titan that lingers on the horizon. I say "the odd", but Leah cut a bloodthirsty swathe through them, making the once majestic beings entirely extinct by the end of the game. Which worked out well as Leah ended up taking the win. Take that titans.

To finish up Warren, Shay, Mark and myself played this great area control / influence building game. With four players it becomes a team game, and I had the good fortune of being partnered with Warren. The best part is that team members aren't allowed to communicate during the game, meaning that I wasn't able to tell Warren what a good job he was doing at pursuing the EXACT OPPOSITE STRATEGY to me

Shay and Mark won fairly comfortably, even with Shay agonising over the last two turns to make sure that he was the winning member of their team, and not mark...

Apparently by an Australian designer! Zoe won a game of this with Richard, Mark, Caroline, Chris and me. A Welcome to the Dungeon/Dungeon of Mandom-style bidding/bluffing game. Basically taking turns making a choice between 1) up the bid, 2) call bluff on the current highest bidder, or 3) pass. Short, light, and fluffy.

1st play for all in the game, was bought at Decembacon. Michael/Jud v Mark/Zoe v Chris/me. 18/21/18. The rules are quite fiddly so it took a bit to get started, but I think that things will become a lot more streamlined now we know the game. Costumes might also help get into the theme, according to web sources!

Overall we enjoyed it - a funny theme blended with just enough mechanical interest.

Michael ghosted for us in this successful 7 player game on easy. First time for most of the players. A curious co-operative mix of Dixit and Cluedo, with none of the alpha gamer problems that plague many co-ops. Success was owed largely to the freaky intuition of Keith, who made up seemingly convoluted stories for why clues matched particular cards, only for them to turn out to be exactly what Michael was thinking! Zoe helped out Keith in the final vote to get us over the line. Very good game!

Bought this from Ian and played it to learn it. Amusing little filler. Best Australian game nominee 2015. Interesting card swap mechanism and can be quite cut throat

Four of us played this very good cooperative game (yes, I said that).

We failed four times.

But we did get closer each time.

I think if we were really in the trenches together there may have been some friendly fire incidents.

Four of us bumbled our way through this.

It is tiny, so is the quality of the components.

It is epic, in the amount of effort required for such a small game.
