A chance to revisit recent favourites... while still time for some older classics... We've just about caught up now with normal time.. but I've enjoyed these opportunities to dip into the past... will have to come up with something for the future perhaps on a monthly basis ?

Anyhow - my memory of what was played is virtually non existent... so please add more games below and add your comments on how well/badly you played an

A nice few games of this wonderful hidden role game... designed purely to set up opportunities for vengeance and backstabbing... I'm amazed wars have not been fought over the outcome of a game of this...

An oldies but classic from Paul - but how does it measure up to modern days dice based games... does it still have that Vegas magic, or does it lose its shiny glitz ?

The more I play this the more I enjoy it... such a simple premise, but so much fun... how did the team get on this time ?

Jon has been playing this for 3 years and is gradually getting through the fabled deck. He may even get to the expansion deck one day....
