Rob and I had done a run through of this with a couple of friends last week, and wanted to introduce it to the WABA crowd.

A welcome visit by notAbean and David being enticed away from watching Castle Panic saw us embarking on the start game on the first map.

A smooth game except for me skipping some bandits I should have fought!

Rob romped home with the amazing ability that I apparently thought I should have had, skipping through bandits.

I've heard a lot of people mention this with nostalgic pleasure through the years but I've never played it before now.

Richard, Kymbles, Rob and I sat down and tried to double our sheep herds. None of us had played before.

Richard swooped on the firefighting equipment early and then proceeded to have absolutely no threats from fire, while my haystacks burned down around my ears.

Listening to Richard's commentary was a highlight of the game for me, and Kym's description of the mischief she got up to on her cousin's sheep station.

The epic loss of the super valuable stud ram mentioned below was one of the highlights for the rest of the players.

I skirted close to disaster with the mortgage, but paid it back and got my sheep doubled to win the game.

Most enjoyable and remarkable for a game of this vintage. Looking forward to my next game of this.

Rob was longing to play this and we humoured him in the half hour we had left. It's a lovely game, waterproof, with little bronze yachts and is basically a trivia game.

It was produced on Kickstarter recently for charity for whale research.

There are some typos in the questions but it's not a game breaker. Very pretty and we enjoyed watching Rob sail (literally) into the lead while it was down to the fight for third.

Successfully played 2 5 player games of FP.

1x Introductory level without roles, vehicles, hazmat and hot spots.
1x veteran level with all the things.

The map had just a "basic house" (guess it was the first map).

Kym, Godlief, Ben (new to WABA, welcome!), Adrian and I attempted to assassinate Hitler to prevent massive loss of life.

Unfortunately, despite 2 plot attempts against his life, we were discovered and Hitler lived - until his 'normal' end at the end of WWII.

Ernest, Ben, Godlief, Kym, Adrian and I taught and played Powerboats - one of my all time favourite games.

In the end I ended up winning on 29 points but it was a lot of fun with the whirlpools and jumps added in from the expansion.

Thank you to Ernest for hosting this one.

20. Board Game: Die Macher [Average Rating:7.63 Overall Rank:238]

Warren very kindly taught this epic game to Jon, Gary, Luke, Andrew and myself.

As German political parties we fought to buy media, hold election events, and adjust our party manifestos to win the votes of the populace. The game has seven rounds, with each round ending in an election.

The nice thing about this is that each player completes the same activity in turn order, rather than players having completely separate rounds. This meant our eyes were constantly darting around as we assessed what everyone else was doing and how it might impact on our own upcoming activities.

Money was always short as we bid against each other for a variety of advantages, like choice of first player, or control of opinion polls which could influence everyone's position.

Personally I started aggressively, winning the first two elections and locking in media influence and national policies, but found myself a little short of assets in the third and fourth rounds, before recovering in the final rounds.

Unfortunately this was not enough, and Luke claimed victory by concentrating on simply winning an even spread of votes across all elections.

While the game takes a long time I definitely think it's worth it and I imagine I'll play again, after a few months recovery.

Got to try this one out as well, like to try it again (maybe this time I will know what the heck to do?). From memory it was a fairly close game in the end across 5 plyrs. It was remarked that it was a very different looking final board which I like, shows to me that the cards you get (or in my case don't get) can make a difference to the paths that can be taken in this game.
