Held on Saturday, April 14th from 11am to 6pm at the Mt Claremont Community Centre (Hakea Room) was the second Perth EuroGamesFest.

This is a follow-on from my first Geeklist about the event:

But this time I removed the "I" and you can all add titles you played.

Unpacked an set up while things were just getting started, this went about the same as the last time I pulled it out. 30% of the players gave up after a couple of rounds, the remaining players displayed a mixture of acumen. I think I'll only pull this out by request for a bit.

My first four-player game of Taluva. This is a game I want to play lots. I think the people playing enjoyed it too.

Khet, with the beam splitters. I had one quick game and rather enjoyed it. The great thing about Khet is that there are many different starting positions, so it doesn't become a memory game like chess so quickly.

And my list ends with Imperial, because the game took three hours. I'm definately going to be paying more attention to the game length when choosing stuff I haven't played before. Enjoyable enough, but I'd rather have played half a dozen rounds of Taluva.

And that's my list. Add your own experiences below.

Had my first go at this too, missed out on winning by 'that much'...

On my one play I am not convinced that it is a whole lot better than the orginal.

Mind you this one did come with something special, we had an offical card turner helping us (she shuffled too) - this was a nice touch.

A two player game of this was a nice filler while we waited for a few others to finish their games.

Taught this to Michael, Ash, Jo and Pete, none of whom had played before.

There is just something about this game that twiddles my knobs.
As I was just discussing with my SO, no matter how may times I've played I still find the decisions in Ra incredibly pleasurable in an almost intoxicating way...I'm not sure what that means though.
It is one of the few games that I'll always play. I truly experience a transition to an alternate 'zone' with this game - It is as though all gameworlds are fused into one and the sublime blend of metagame, possibility and the ever-changing array of tiles are conspiring to alter the very way I think about not only the game, but well... everything.

Terry is right - "Stew will never turn down a game of Ra"

Came last, as usual.

I'd played this for the first time the night before with my 'regular three".
Isn't it pretty?
A draw! In the tiebreak I lost by one chest!

So, second shot today...The meaty game that last month's inaugural duties precluded
Mikey, Jake, Terry and I donned our wakizashi and set about it.
Owing to my missing the 'removal of rice markers in Winter' rule we played a game where the peasants were very unhappy angry

A draw...and I win by...(Oh the irony is too much!)....a single chest!

Mikey finally got Goa to the table - and what a great game it is ! This will see more table time now we know the rules - and as a Dorn fan that makes me happy

Michael, Mark, Alicia and myself played this and enjoyed it. Thank you to the lovely lady who taught us - whose name escapes me, sorry!

I won this one but don't expect to next time, I think they'll tromp all over me.

Once again, the two Alicias, Mark and Michael played together. Mark and Michael came into conflict pretty early, despite this Michael won, with me a distant second and Alicia and Mark on equal third.

We had a game of this thanks to Craig and Karen bringing it, but I can't remember who actually played & who won.
