This is becoming a regular Thornlie game for myself and Pete, having played the previous 2 meets as well. This time we were joined by Chris and Mark.

Chris put together an awesome combo so any units returning from Valhalla were giving him a huge score. Combined with all the quests he was turning in he trounced everyone by almost a full lap of the score track.

A recent Kickstarter acquisition for myself, I was a little trepidatious to pull the shrink off after some horrible reviews.

The game is played in 2 halves, the first involves mining resources, the second is making products using those resources. The crux of the negative reviews revolves around not being able to produce adequately in the second half of the game if you didn't plan properly (or just played poorly) in the first half. Knowing this I made sure everyone at the table was aware this could be an issue but we all did pretty well going into the second half.

Chris pulled off another win but this time it was much closer. Happy to say I really enjoyed it.

I've been interested in this for a while since I love Spartacus and it's from the same designers and publisher.

Players each control a bikie gang and are aiming to have the most money after 6 rounds. There are 9 locations on the board (and maybe a couple more each round) that let you get money, guns or drugs, most often by trading one of the other commodities. If another gang shares the location you can't use it until you have a throwdown and only one gang remains. Bloody chaos ensues.

Another pretty close one but Chris pulled off the trifecta and now I'm waiting for the kids to go to bed because I'm really keen to see what the TV show is all about.

Such an awesome looking game and a nice light-middleweight level of strategy and lots of short term objectives.

If you like the Witcher 3 and the mini-game inside of it Gwent you'll love the game that it inspired it.

Ethan, Jasmine, Adam and Steve played this one. Adam headed the field for most of the game, but alas, the veteran Ethan (one previous game) took the field in end game scoring.

For our first game Louise and I decided on Ticket to ride. Alistair joined us. I was off to a good start scoring higher points for longer sections of the track. In the end a close game with Alistair pulling ahead with the longest run of trains netting him the extra points.

Players: Alistair, Louise, Kym

Alistair taught us this one next with some help from Richard (Thank you!!). So I can safely say spaceship building is not a career option for me....Richard did a stellar job of protecting us all from pirates and slavers, however due to a lack of engines that didn't require battery power open space took me out in round two. Keith helped me to build a more spaceworthy ship in round three (thank god!!) and i made it through. No surprises Richard won this game with plenty of credits to his name.
Would like to give this one another go and maybe improve my spaceship building skills in the process....if that's even possible...

Players: Alistair, Richard, Louise, Kym

Huge thanks to Keith for teaching Louise and I this one. Building a palace this time (much easier than spaceships)...an easy game to pick up...some frustrations towards the end of the game when all the blue cards disappeared and all we wanted to buy was a tile with no walls... Keith: "It's all crap and I hate you all.." ;-)
Keith won by a mile.

Players: Keith, Louise, Kym

Having played the app every day pretty much for the last two weeks...don't judge me... i was on top of the rules and ready to go for this one. Keith was on a roll picking up 3 of the nobles cards but out of nowhere Louise got to 15pts first with no noble cards...excellent work!

A very close game with Kent, Keith and myself getting to 3 wins each (The cards were against Louise every time!) before i got the final victory. We were all very quick to accuse everyone else of being the princess which worked out for me :-) sorry Kent.

Adam joined us for this one. A game I love but am not good at...as usual i kept running out of coins and getting stuck with a high number card...I need a new strategy...or just any strategy... Adam hoarded all the coins and won this game.

Myself and Stu played a quick game of this. Despite Stu's war mongering ways, it was my highly developed culture that won the day.

Leah, Tim K, Stu, Pete and myself played this to finish off. Leah and Tim constantly got embroiled in influence wars over claiming cards, while I gathered low hanging fruit that all had the ability to raise the Restorationists' War Track. Meanwhile Pete snapped up the Change of Heart card, allowing him to change sides if he wished.

As usual, I was the first to tip my hand, raising the Restorationist War Track from 0 to 6 in one turn (Loyalist track was also at 0). Pete saw the writing on the wall and quickly switched sides to join the Restorationists, while Stu brought the game to a quick end.

Leah and Stu revealed as Loyalists, while Tim and I were Restorationists. Pete had started the game as a Loyalist but had switched to a Restorationist. Unfortunately for our team, even after both Loyalist players had lost 6 points (from the War Track), Tim was still in last place, losing all of the Restorationist players 5 points, and leaving Stu in the lead to win the game.

I taught (loose term) and played in a team game of this. Coming off a run up of just one two player game and launching into teaching a four player team game required cooperation and enthusiasm from all.

Fortunately we had it.

General Rowland and Admiral Me sided with the Empire, whilst General Jason and Admiral Tim supported the Rebel scum.

Got to say, this is one enthralling game. In this episode the Empire discovered the home planet of the Rebels very earlier, some may say fortunately.

Through adroit tactics the Rebel scum managed to keep the Empire from being able to approach their home planet for some time, until slowly the strength of the Empire made the continued defence improbable.

As the Death Star closed in, the Rebel scum abandoned the planet and established a new planet as their home, far away from the clutches of the seemingly evil Empire. The entire galaxy was inspired by the Rebels plucky resistance, and threw off the oppressive shackles of the Empire.
