This was a staple of our day. Ian, Tim, and I played the first and second missions, before returning for another attempt of the second mission with Leah later in the evening. We were not good mechs but we had a damn good time.

Ian, Tim, Leah and I sat down for this magnificent game. I enjoyed this one much more at 4 players than 2. The extra production and farming action spaces really help the game along.


The game still comes in as a heavier, more strategic Marco Polo. The chances of you becoming blocked from an action you need are much greater. Both are different enough that you could easily have both on the shelf, but I like that Marco Polo is versatile enough to be good at any number.

I suspect Lorenzo's sweet spot is going to be at 3. Still one I would happily play any time.

After everyone called it a night and decided to pack up, Ian grabbed Fuse out of his bag and tempted us in with, it's only 10 minutes, there's a timer.

So we sat down and played a game of Fuse. Leah spectated while Ian, Tim and I came somewhat close to winning on Standard difficulty. Leah then joined us for game 2 in which we did terribly.

Determined and with sleep staved off, we went into game 3 as expert bomb defusers and cleared it with 1m 15s to spare.

I played this one with Ian at PAX as well, and while I thought it was ok it's definitely one that has grown on me with more plays.

Such a great game. Really enjoyed playing this one with Ian and Tim using the advanced version with unique corporations, 0 starting production and the more advanced cards.

The game continues to surprise with its resolution. In Saturday's game we populated almost every space on Mars which we had never seen in any of our previous games.

Also, "The Search For Life" card paid off netting me a whole 3 VPs. It's potentially the greatest card in the game.

First up- Richard, Keith, Jason and myself took on another version of Love Letter (Just how many are there!?)

This version based on the tv show Archer...which I haven't seen but could be worth viewing based on the cards. Aim of the game...first to get four dolphin tokens wins...apparently there is a dolphin puppet for meditation (correct me if I'm wrong)...3 dolphins a piece to myself, Richard and Keith before Richard took out the win.

Jason, in my opinion, too preoccupied with the Dr Krieger card/mechanism earned himself only the one token all game...Why was he so interested in the Dr Krieger card I hear you ask...Use the Doc to guess the identity of the hidden card (that card removed at the beginning of the game), guess correctly...you win the round. Lana Kane (this games version of the countess) interesting- take all players hands and the hidden identity card, shuffle and redistribute...that really mixes things up.

A lot of fun...think I would gain another level of enjoyment from this if I was familiar with the show it was based on.

Interesting Co-op game, (To win you need to play/shed all the cards from the main deck) We lost by 1 card.

Richard introduced Keith and I to Opera.

We attempted to budget and buy Opera houses in order to introduce the music of classical composers to the people of Europe, well I attempted and Richard and Keith were able to get it done...

Going to blame Keith and his Joe Green (Guiseppe Verdi) jokes and Warren's (attempt at) singing every time he walked past our table putting me off my game

Keith the runaway winner

Thanks to Jason for teaching this. Awesome fun!

Game 1 & 2: Team Defiant-Tim (Captain Captain arrrh), Louise, Mike & Myself vs Jason (taking on Captain and First Mate duties), Richard & Chris.
My new job...Radio Operator on a submarine...first two wins to team Defiant (Captain Captains team name reasoning...middle finger salute win or lose...)

Game 3: Tim left us, Mike took over Captaincy duties on the renamed HMS Sinky Boat(a sign of things to come...) with myself, Louise & Sharon joining the crew. Our opponents- Richard the new Captain of the opposing sub, with Jason, Chris & Nick, the greenhorn. A close one, Richard leading his crew to victory.

I gave up my radio operator duties after this,but more torpedoes were shot, mines dropped and subs surfacing if anyone cares to add the detail

Chickens, foxes, rats, guard dogs...it all seems so easy but clearly I'm not cut out for this chicken business finishing with a dismal 9 chickens....can't remember who won but I'm sure they had well over 50...shake

...and of course Keith won the game.

Thanks to Kent for teaching this one to Louise & myself.

Factions were drawn at random, I was battling with Tricksters devil & Aliens goo, Louise with Robots robot & Ninjas ninja and Kent with Wizards sauron & Zombies zombie.

A hard fought battle for the bases, almost shot myself in the foot placing a card without first reading the base card but the mistake was rectified and I ended up winning the game on 12pts to Kent & Louise both on 10.

Last game of the night was Saboteur with Kent & Louise.

A successful first round as Saboteur, remaining completely under the radar..."So I guess we were all gold miners then?" WRONG!devil
So good to get through a round with out being suspected! But the trust was gone round two and drawing the Saboteur card again did not work out for me with Kent and Louise getting some gold for themselves. Third round...all gold miners this time.

All up... Kent winning with the largest gold haul.

17. Board Game: Pandemic: In the Lab [Average Rating:7.93 Unranked] [Average Rating:7.93 Unranked]
Adrian, Godlief* and I played this pandemic expansion which I dont think I'll play pandemic without again. We lost (horribly) but being able to keep cards in the lab is a massive improvement on the overall hand management and enjoyable and adds more to the overall theme. Really enjoyed it!

After dinner Adrian and I taught our newcomer Nadine and one other (sorry - my name brain isnt working) this one. Worker placement is definitely my favourite type of game and I really enjoy waterdeep. It was a really close game with everyone ending around the 100 mark.

Next up our same group of four played qwixx; a really good filler game that Tim k once taught us. It can be really funny watching the risks people take and we had a good laugh out of this one. We played twice (kinda have to with double sides score sheets :-P)

Lovvve Bohnanza! Fun mix of set collection, bargaining and trading. Nadine and I tied first but it was a really close game. We all needed a third bean field quite early on but it was difficult even with that.

Adrian and I ended the night with this cute little two player game I had just picked up from Mal. I'm really happy we have added another two player game to our collection and this one had us evenly matched. I won by one point. Definitely rate this game and can see Adrian and myself getting a good number of plays out of it at home :-) really enjoyable final Thornlie for the year!
