Ian taught me this great space exploration game from the guy behind Glory to Rome. It has a terrible rulebook and takes quite a while to teach but is actually reasonably straightforward once you get going. It plays quickly and does a pretty good job of scratching that 4x itch.

I taught Ian, Jason and Paul the intro version of this game. Jason won pretty convincingly buying up a lot of the big dragons early on. The intro setup of Drow/Dragons is a really basic combo but the game drastically changes when you mix it up with the other decks. Looking forward to playing more of this in the future.

Ian, Jason, Paul and I played a quick game of Archaeology: The New Expedition, a re-release and update to one of Phil Walker-Hardings early games.

It's nice and simple but still good fun. The starting setup with the Great Pyramid tile is perhaps the least interesting of all the temple tiles but certainly the best to teach with.

Ian, Tim and I played a game later in the evening with a different temple tile (Sphinx) and that led to a very different game with Ian abusing the map cards for a comfortable win.

I was surprised to here that there's another ant game out there beyond March of the Ants and that Myrmes was also released first.

Ian, Leah, Paul and I did tiny battle and Ian scrapped in a win by 1 point as Paul was short 1 food in the final round.

Overall the game was a really good exercise in efficient euro worker placement. A single bad move can really screw up your game so you need to be on the ball to play this one well.

Tim taught Ian, Ernest and I this first person shooter simulator. It's a really great interpretation of the theme and is really well done. They have interesting systems such as "marks" which will boost your damage to a player the next time you damage them as well as players becoming worth fewer points the more they die to encourage people to move around the board and not just attack whoever is closest.

I took this one out, presumably thanks to the hundred thousand hours of video games I've played in my life

David ghosted over Eric, Keith, Mark and me. We succeeded and did well.

Turns out we won the battle but not the war as we got pipped by a point in the tournament.

Keeping with Warren's theme, helped to teach one game of Bohnanza (didn't win but made it interesting enough for everyone to play a 2nd game )

19. Board Game: CV [Average Rating:6.69 Overall Rank:1044]
Gave this game that was acquired over chrissy break. Taught Adrian, Amie and Leah out of the rulebook. It's a light quick little game with a bit of luck involved and a bit of forward planning. I had a terrible early adulthood which kept me out of the game. I believe Leah was the most successful accruing possessions galore!!!

20. Board Game: Tragedy Looper [Average Rating:7.28 Overall Rank:593]
Next up Amie, Adrian and I played the first play through of tragedy looper (I think it is called first steps) so that we could teach Amie how the game works. It was my first try being the game master* and I almost won! Lost on the final day of the final loop. This game hurts my brain but I enjoy the challenge. I thought being the game runner would be easier but in my opinion it is equally difficult.

21. Board Game: Sushi Go Party! [Average Rating:7.51 Overall Rank:162]
Amie taught Adrian, myself and one other this one. I enjoyed it far more than I thought I would. I think it revitalises the game after playing with the same combo in regular sushi go. Definitely rate it and would play it again!

22. Board Game: The Grizzled [Average Rating:7.26 Overall Rank:324]
 
Amie, Adrian, Richard and I also got a game of the Grizzled in after dinner before the mysterium tournament. We lost horribly. Which turned out to be a good thing because we finished just as we were told to set up for mysterium :-P I still find this game enjoyable even after countless plays. I like the difficulty of this co-op as well as the easy set up.

23. Board Game: Mysterium [Average Rating:7.39 Overall Rank:196]
In the mysterium tournament I was the friendly ghost to clairvoyants Amie, Adrian, Leece, Nick and Sharon. Nick and Adrian demonstrated strong psychic abilities and their dreams showed vivid portrayals of the murders. Unfortunately the ghostly connection I had with Amie and Leece was poor and the signs were not there. We made it through to the final selection but not one psychic guessed the murder which will now go unsolved for another 50 years...

24. Board Game: Broom Service [Average Rating:7.22 Overall Rank:434]
Not knowing what to play next Eric fortuitously brought the game of broom service I had purchased a month ago. So Amie, Adrian and I played a round of that. It had been over a year since my one and only previous game so I taught again from the rulebook and we made it through the game. I enjoy the aspects of role selection and push your luck (or greed if you will) that comes with calling "brave". I am a coward! I only call brave if I am last in the round or if the event card makes me. Not the strongest strategy but we all ended up with decent scores fairly close together at the end. I'm happy I picked this one up. I do prefer the game with more players though and would like to give it several more games to find the number of players sweet spot.

25. Board Game: Diamant [Average Rating:6.83 Overall Rank:659]
Adrian, Amie and I gave this a crack at the very start of the day (forget we played this). 3 players is the minimum and I feel like there is good reason for that. It is just not as fun when there is only three of you vying for the jewels. I won by a mile with a chest full of jewels. I was often the first to leave and got lucky with idols. Adrian pushed his luck beyond belief, ending the final three rounds with nada. Amie was in the middle, playing it safe sometimes and pushing her luck others. Love this game, I've been hunting down a copy of incan gold since my first play 3 years ago. Could never find one so I am so glad Richard pointed this out to me!!!
