The day seemed to start of slowly, but gamers continued to steadily come into the room as the day continued. See what games got to the table and add what you played.

I started off with this cooperative game with Claire, David and Anneke. Playing on the standard level with closed hands, we lost due to too many outbreaks.

This was played partly in preparation for the Pandemic Survival Tournaments to be held at WABA in July (see https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1583388/pandemic-survival-j... and https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1583958/pandemic-survival-t...).

It was nice to go basically straight into a game, with only minor rules needing to be revised. David did the best to finish on 152, Warren was second on 131 and I ended up on 108. While there may not be anything super stunning about this game, it is a very solid one that I am happy to occasionally come back to.

There was much meanness, sharks devouring swimmers, boats frantically paddling away from whales, and the sea monster menacingly moving about, as we all tried to get meeples off the sinking Atlantis. David did the best to get 22 points worth off, following by me on 19 and Warren on 6.

Warren taught and then won our 2 player game of this.

It's a solid tile-laying euro with a rondel-type worker/tile market that is quite interesting. Enjoyed the game - thanks Warren for teaching!

None of us had an idea of how to play this game but we decided to give it a go.

Very easy game to learn especially as we played the simplest version. We probably could have played with the Task Cards to make it a bit more of a challenge and interesting.

Best part about playing this game...the miniatures...and making random animal noises.

Always a popular and easy game to play. However, our game probably lasted a bit longer than a typical game normally would!

Claire was the winner of the Heads & Tails...which we all celebrated with much enthusiasm. As she had never played before, we decided to give it a go.

Played two games and let's just say that Bec completely demolished us in the first game! laugh

Dave picked Sheriff of Nottingham for our group. I find it incredibly difficult to lie to Dave as he can instantly tell.

It was a fun game and many lies were told. Dave won the game in the end thanks to all the contraband he managed to smuggle through!

All set to play and teach this to three friends when a fourth turned up.

Gave up my spot and taught the four of them. Stayed and guided them through the game, greatly enjoying their misfortune.

Martin won the game comfortably causing the others to reload their dice and challenge him to another match. I left them to it.

I taught this game to Victor and the person sitting next to me (Mr XAndrew, sorry) and we were joined by Luke.

This game oozes themes as you go to the bag in search of treasure and scrounge your way through an ever increasing pile of rubble.

Luke had a spread of knowledge across all civilisations but, combined with the inability to handle a shovel, he just kept digging up rubble and tipping it back in the hole. Mr XAndrew on the other hand proved to be rather adept at wielding a shovel and with limited knowledge (despite attending conferences regularly), dug well on each occasion.

Victor was handling his role as an archaeologist comfortably, weaving his way successfully through dig sites in his new fangled time saving motor car.

I was excelling at gathering purple knowledge, attending conferences and digging well when I dug in purple. In between conferences I collected two zeppelins which turned out to be very handy as the year drew to a close, enabling me to squeeze enough action out of the closing weeks to take the victory.

As the day drew to a close I joined Adrian and Amy for this.

Standard game, with bad and worse dice rolls, blocking moves and being blocked, and losing battles (and buildings) to Dwarves or some other evil type.

As we headed into the final battle I was on 27 points, Adrian on 25 and Amy trailing on ~18. Adrian and Amy won the final battle and unfortunately I could only draw. They both gained two victory points for being successful while my church was destroyed along with it's seven points.

Final score Adrian 27, Amy 20, me 20. Or so we thought, until Adrian pointed out that drawing in a battle is not a loss and I did not need to lose my building and points. Adjusted final score Adrian and me 27, Amy 20.....to the tiebreakers we go!

Tiebreaker 1: Most goods - equal at zero
Tiebreaker 2: Most buildings - equal at nine
Tiebreaker 3: It's a tie!

After completing Kingsburg in world record time Adrian, Amy and I looked for something else we could play quickly to squeeze in before closing.

This was it.

Tired by then and vague as to what happened but pretty sure I didn't win. I think Adrian won, then me followed by Amy.
Seems I won this one with a come from behind victory based on the length of my wall.

Good game of this, except I forgot some stuff I was sharply reminded of come scoring time.

It was a good game though - Imogen's carnivore snapping up my Rob eating carnivore must have been the hilight of Rob's game.

One pyschic only reached the final level, to the ghost's despair.

Oh well, at least he'll have company now, can't let the public know that the rest of us are such weaklings.
