Started with a quick card game. I'm told it's like "Up and Down the River". This is a genre of card games I've somehow managed to not get much exposure to, so I was happy to try it out. Seemed pleasant enough, I came a relatively close second out of three.

We added a fourth player and started up Alhambra. I'd not played this before. Seems like an interesting city building tile game with a bit of a money mechanic. I got hamstrung by a rule I didn't know about, but otherwise found it enjoyable. Got the mechanics down, will try for tactics next time. A solid 7 score to start with.

Just as Alhambra was winding up Treehouse was being explained, so I hopped in on two games.

Then I pulled out my set of UNO Stacko. It was a very silly game with some very dodgy stuff in the middle of the tower. Ultimately I knocked it over by pulling a bottom piece with just a little too much weight on it. Easy to get out, but the shock was too much for the tower.

Then I finally had my first game of Puerto Rico. I came second last of five, but I can see why it's a popular game.

And I ended the afternoon by hopping into the tail end of a game of Fluxx. Apparently there were a couple of the expansions in there, but it finished pretty quickly after I joined.

From Mikey's growing Ystari collection. I'd need another play to form an opinion but the blind-bidding isn't as chaotic as I'd expected and the market manipulation is cute...Lost badly

Played this for the first time too...courtesy of Terry (who, I should point out, explained the game flawlessly )
Will definitely grab this when the reprint comes around..

Edit:

Quote:
there is a bonus if players have managed to build one of each kind of building in a city. If you can do this in two cities or more, you get the bonus for each of those.


WHAAAAT?????

Rob and Leece started the day by teaching Stephen "On the Underground". Leece successfully jumped up and down on us with big heavy boots, and won by a healthy 4-5 points.

Despite this, Stephen seemed to enjoy the game immensely.

Rob and Leece finished off the day with this fun little game. We had 5 players, and some serious evil was inflicted. Look for "The Tale of Sinbad and the Prisoner of Dead Iron" in theatres near you! See Skippy the Wonder Sea Dog! (Please do not ask what Skippy has to do with Sinbad. It will only make your head hurt.)

And if not in theatres, then in a MST3K special edition!

"So good, it went straight to video!" (Betamax, that is.)

In order to recover from the stress of Uno Stacko, several of us decided to recover with a nice quiet game of Aquarius, to still our trembling nerves.

As it turned out, it was a very gentle game, despite constant theft of goals. Just what we needed.

And it ended up a 5 way tie! Dude! It's karma!

...and the late-stayers finished out with a game of Antike that, apparently, didn't have enough bloodshed!
