Not all tables were full today - the sunshine and upcoming rain may have tempted people outside. Nevertheless, returning and new people came to enjoy each other's company over some games. See what hit the table and add what you played.

As part of celebrating the Olympics, I brought the only sports-related game I owned, and managed to have 5 others also interested in playing(/learning for Dani and Kent). We played on the easier side. Mark had a good start, winning the first race, but was perhaps distracted by some of the expansion bits I added for the other 2 races, failing to get another point.

The winner was Warren who finished on 20 points, followed by Dani on 17, me on 17, Tim 16, Kent 11, and Mark 5.

Mark taught Kent and Dani as we settled in for a 4 player game. Mark commented that it was a atypical game. We were on 4 colonies when Kent and I both agreed and played negotiate, thinking to go for a joint win. Mark played a flair, took my place in the negotiation, and agreed with Kent for a joint win for the both of them - a crazy yet oddly appropriate Cosmic Encounter (at least to me) way to end the game.

Eric was taught this game as 5 as us sat down to race our cars, using a cube drafting mechanism (think Domnion but with cubes instead of cards, a track instead of points, and with dud cubes added to your bag depending on where on the track you go, roughly described as going on a better, faster space getting more dud cubes to simulate wear on the car).

I was in the minority in seeming to grasp Dominion combinations much easier than in this game. This was evident in the 2 games we paced with random card sets. In the first game, Eric won over (in order) Tim, Mark, Warren and me. In the second (different side, new random card set), Eric again won over (in order) Mark, Warren, Tim and me.

It is only now that I realise that this is, strictly speaking, a sport-related game, which fit with my Powerboats playing earlier in the meet.

I saw a group of 4 playing this - perhaps at least one of them will comment on what happened and how they found it?

Rob and I introduced this to David and um um name escapes me and we all had a great game, even me despite my pitiful score of 17. The spread was 40, 41 and 42, a very close spread. David's sudden rise in reputation due to an all or nothing venture in the caverns did it for him.

My cavern sojournings were okay but I was spending too many people on them.

Craig, Ethan, Steve and Jasmine gave this one a whirl. This game scores well above the hype, just an amazing game. (Think euro-version of the game of life, but just awesome) Anyway enough waffle.

Ethan was happy, Steve was happy, Craig was happier, but Jasmine was happiest by far, and lived 10 years more than the rest of us, which makes me sad.

Ethan, Craig, Jasmine and Steve, then went and played with fire, burnt down a house, scorched the cat and lost a round of this, then replayed (with the correct rules this time) and rescued all 10 victims.

Have been hearing about this game for a while now, thanks to Ben? whistle For breaking out it and having the tough time of teaching it. Had quite a few layers to it but at the end of the day this Knizia game was enjoyed by most.

Add this quick gem of a game to the list Earnest, a pretty close (4) player game to end the night. The other guys mentioned having played it with 2 people previously and enjoying it much more with 4 players this time round.

This game was donated to the WABA Games Collection.

Tim and I unwrapped I and got it ready for play - then played it.
