I taught one of my favourite games to Billy, Dean, Jo & Damien. I had to 'Thurn and Taxis' before they finished - I hope you all enjoyed the game

Did a little teaching of this, uh... what's the opposite of 'co-operative game' ? Great game - not sure that it is at its best with only four players however.

We played a 6-player skirmish to get a feel for the game - resulting in a pretty short game ! I'll get this one out again with a larger map next time. Not sure about captains with ATK 6 however !

Mikey, Matt L, Peter and I gave this a whirl. I started with a handful of blue and thought 'VP pump, here we go'. Ended up with a comfortable military win - that's Race for you

With Katie, JM, Peter and Mikey. I managed to miss out TWO important rules and misinterpret a thrid shake blush

Still I think everyone enjoyed the game - and we'll have to play again with the 'optional' rules added in

Tsk, a game in which you can be knocked out early, and often the winner/s is decided by completely random card draw.

I WANT MORE! AAAARGH, DAKA DAKA DAKA!

Tim and Bronny taught this one to us, it's a really neat little minigame.

The Sea Wolf Leece was victorious, mostly due to a pile up to leeward, where my opponents could be dimly glimpsed through the huge piles of iceflows that they'd been throwing at each other.

I scored a five-player game of this. Quite fun. I did rather enjoy working together with the other players for a change.

This was great fun! I had a couple of games, each of a few rounds. I think I enjoy it more than Ticket to Ride.

This game got very silly at the end. There were times I could barely breath with the laughing.

Greg brought this along and we had a quick 5 player. Very quick turnover of empires seems to be the norm..I think we were all just getting the hang of it when a couple of players had to bale.

I enjoyed whacking red....but I think I'll be up for a revenge attack next game. Why are people so unkind?

Paul brought this along (so did Terry I believe). Gave it a shot. Rules are hard to understand, random ocean tiles, random island tiles, random cards and random dice rolls for battles... very old school. The horror, the horror.

I got there late but within minutes we were in a 5 player game. I hadn't played this for a while but Steve (hope I got your name right) and I taught it to 3 new players. Of course one of the new players Paul won but only by 2 points from me. I think we also managed to misread some of the rules but by the middle of the game had all rules sorted out.

I had fun and I hope the others did too! I ended up playing it that night at someone's house, so I'm glad it's still addictive.

Being one to take note of **everyone's** name badges, not. ;-), I totally forget who taught us this one. But thanks anyway. Though I do remember Oliver was playing... and got beat by him, but revenge was all mine in Wings of War.

Interesting game, but it seems to reward those that hang onto the coat tails of other players, player initiative ain't rewarded here. Enjoyable all the same.
