The only game I got to play this month as Warren was away...I hadn't realised how much admin he does until I had to do some of it!!!!

Played with Chris, Craig, Renato and Richard. Chris played an admirably cautious game and took home the win by one point....

Played an exciting round of this rather good game with Jason, Michael, and Tim. It was a close game with many of the interlocking mechanics balancing out the game. Although I expect Jason to try and work out a counter to the Temple strategy that gave Michael the win.

A deep game that would benefit from more plays. Fun.

Taught two rounds of this fun game, it seems very popular and family friendly. I hope others can get their hands on a copy.

A great game of another Ystari title - Stew labeled me an Ystari fanboy. A graphically vivid game of area control and bidding as players compete to develop neighborhoods in a neo-Victorian world.

Only 10mins to cover the rules with Renato and Craig. Never thought ranching in Argentina would be this much fun!

The 3 of us tended to keep to our corners and build up without too much contact. Renato was the clear winner at the end with his Great Lakes, abundant sheep and wad of pesos.

I would be keen to play this with 4 or more players where the land grab would be much more competitive.

I'm not a physicist but I'm pretty sure Mikey, Liz, Genevieve and I managed to break a few natural laws on our way to building a pretty high structure. Thankfully Mikey restored the natural order of things after an inspired pillar removal but unsuccessful top level placement.

Had a 3 player of this with Neil and the Coffeeman. Taking the role of Frederick I managed to play incredibly badly and get smashed by C'mans Austrians. I like the card driven combat system in this game and the need for careful manouvering to protect cities and depots.

There's a minute amount of bookeeping in this game, but otherwise it played pretty quickly, taking about 2.5 hrs....which left time for a riotous game of...

...this was Neils relatively pristine 1977 original edition. This time we played with mutliple powers and it definately gave the game oomph. The Coffeeman managed to continually annoy with his magnetic power. Grrr.

The first game I played that day with four/five others. We eventually perished in the gnomish submarine, with I think the pressure killing us. Have those builders not heard of quality standards and testing ? It was a great to play a cooperative game to start the day.

A fun if originally confusing (becuase you never really 'own' a company)game-strategy seems to be one which will be more fully understood over several playing of the game. Like all the other games, I was never in the hunt for the win.

Saw this set up when I arrived so I gave it a go. Played a 2 player game of it and then a 3 player game a little later on.

Young Sam brought this game along and I quite liked it, very much "Red Dragon Inn 1" just different characters.

This requires a replay next month but in conjunction with the first game for a mega 8 player game.

Any takers?
