Due to the tragic events in Victoria the previous week, the February meet was organised as a fundraiser for the victims of the bushfires.

All proceeds from the meet were donated and a number of folk brought in games that were auctioned off.

TOTAL AMOUNT RAISED FOR DONATION: $776

You can see here for more details.

Many thanks to Warren for organising the auctions...

Taught this to two first-timers and two who hadn't played before - Tim & Colin(?). Went down very well.

As a sidenote, in the evening, went round to a non-gaming neighbours house and taught this again. After a close game they insisted we play again immediately!

Quickly becoming my intro game of choice - Will someone please buy Aquaretto - I'm keen to play both together...

I have no memory of who won (though I dare say it wasn't me)

Tried to teach this to the people who won it in the auction - you know, it's hard to teach something if you played it a couple of times 10 years ago or so...

Tim guided us into the world of Asian darkness where we got wupped.


Not a proud record on the day - this and Battlestar Galactica give me two cooperative games for two losses.

Had two games of this, one with five players, one with six.

A lot of people encountering this for the first time.

Maintained my unbeaten beaten record at this, recording another loss.

I am improving though, I did lead after the first race.

While we managed to rid the Middle East of tuberculosis, Bird Flu swept out of control in South East Asia. Germs: 1 Humans: 0.

BTW, this was my first visit and I had a great day - you are a nice and welcoming bunch of people

Steve G and Greg C and Steve and I played two games of this. Steve G bought the game, and Steve said he had it at home, but had never played it. I played it a long time ago. I was happy - I managed to engineer two joint wins. And we had a lot of fun - in spite of Terry's snide comment about us only playing with one alien power

My first game of this, made more interesting by the debate amongst those who had already played about the exact rules! As a tile-placement game, I quite like it, though I think six players is probably too many - there was a lot of down time (which was a bit unsettling after the continual involvement of Cosmic Encounter) and it was difficult to do any planning, since the tile I wanted was invariably snatched away just as I had acquired enough money to buy it! I was happy to come a comfortable second to Greg's run-away first.

Played this, tucked away in the corner of the room, with three other sorely misguided and misled gamers and whooooped ass, albiet in the last dying minute of the game.

A helpful backseat wizard-ess helped the four of us through those analysis paralysis moments, which were many for such a simple looking game.

According to the rules the players start the game with "three wands for three wishes". Of which one quick thinking wizard immediately incanted "I win", which didn't work, neither did the "Please please please make it all end"

One minor plus for the game though, were the delightful little descriptions in the rule book for all those ingredients you collected during the game. Amazingly "Skull Moss" is from...

...wait for it ....

...you'll never guess...

moss that grows on skulls.

So Wandfully woeful.

Taught this game to two different groups. A fun, colourful, and light tile placement game with a nice amount of interaction means this has broad appeal.

Seemed to be rather popular with those who played. Encourages one to feel hungry.

Was taught this game by Richard Cheng, playing it with 2 other first timers. Not the easiest game to understand from the beginning, but everything made sense one the game was under way. Despite the seeming high degree of luck in the drawing of tiles, the choice of stock purchases and tile placement make it interesting.

Helen took us through this game for first timers Craig and Michael. It was interesting to watch city boy Michael get the lowest score I've ever witnessed in this game (6 points) by growing absolutely nothing and building a large fenced area. He did collect about 15 stone for some reason but never quite did anything with it. He vowed to try a different strategy next time!
