A little tribute to designer Franz-Bello Delonge, who passed away recently. Oliver destroyed us

The elegant yet brutal game of Age of Steam. I brought this along and introduced it to three unfortunate souls. To give you an idea of the unforgiving nature of this game, two people went bankrupt on turn 2.

A perennial favourite. We started with a three player game of this and I believe it was a surprising introduction to some of the building favour strategy.

I bought this recently and hadn't had a chance to play it until this meet. I was quite keen to do so and I'm glad we got in a game. There are some random elements but it has some interesting mechanics and, once you get going, is quite fast. Some of the mechanics are interesting and there is some planning involved.

This was a particularly frustrating game for me, as Putney Bridge was closed for the common good, but unfortunately it was my last station. Not that it made much difference as I couldn't get near the place at any rate.

Oh boy. We hadn't played this for a while. My poor beasts were sad and limping, and at one stage we had three Dreaded Frenzy influenced teams going hell for leather.

The Boys on the Bend had a good show, showing their appreciation with cries of "Are YOU an Organ Donor?" and "Hamburger Comin' Up!" as we careened around the track.

Plays a lot quicker than I remember...but then, we were using the small track.

This is the first game I played - I thought I would enjoy the game more than I did, however that's probably the result of trailing for most of the race (and coming last)! Would like to play again though and see if I can redeem myself. Winner was Jason who pipped Simon in the final straight.

I introduced Oliver, Warren, Glen and Paul to this game. It was a close game with myself and Glen with equal victory points in the end, however Glenn winning the tie-breaking condition (most money). I quite enjoy this game - a step up from Coloretto and a worthy SDJ winner. I think the other players enjoyed it too!

I introduced this game to Warren, Oliver (actually, Oliver had played this with me before), Glenn, Greg and Paul. There were quite a few critical battles and the game became quite tense towards the end, with most players having their opportunities for an attempt at the win. In the end, Oliver and Paul tied for most cities, resulting in a final battle which Paul managed to win (by a measely 2 points). I enjoyed the game, despite coming last, but feel the game plays best with about 4 players, whereby there are more players interested in participating in particular battles (there was a lot of passing in our game). Anyway, I think most players enjoyed the game.

I taught a quick game of Kingdoms to Greg and Paul. Paul steaked to the lead in the first round, and despite some small scoring 2nd and 3rd rounds, managed to hang on for the win. Greg was a close second, and I was a close 3rd. So not a great day for me winning-wise but I was happy to introduce people to some new games which they seemed to enjoy.
