Paul brought this along, Rich joined him on the dark side, while Kylie and I held out for all that is good in the universe.

The sith prevailed in a highly enjoyable and geeky romp.

This seemed to be getting a lot of plays thanks to Mikey's tireless teaching.

I was soundly trounced by Kylie, Priya and Matt....

A very tight game, with Jeremy scraping in the win against myself, Rich, Kylie and Opalina (sp?)

I taught this one and we won! Always a great co-op game experience.
We didn't play the swine flu expansion.

Warren taught this one to a group likely suspects, actually with myself, Billy, JM, Katie, and Paul it was a group of very dodgy customers. Katie took out the win, and the title of dodgiest of them all. A fun game.

This was my first play of this and I really enjoyed it.

Blind bidding but with plenty of "take that" screwage.

Graphics and components were simply gorgeous. This one will have to come out more often.

I brought this along, keen to try with more than 2 players and managed to set up a 4 player with Greg, Chris and Jocelyn.

Clearly, the way I'd read the rules and played it previously were totally left of centre...

After some deliberation it settled down to a very close game with Jocelyn suprising with a last minute win.

Warren wandered past muttering the words 'evil game' under his breath..

Small and fun...with a teeny mapboard in the 3rd edition

11. Board Game: Formula D [Average Rating:7.04 Overall Rank:464]

This was a great little game, Tim, Steve, Steve, Sam, Steve, um, and Steve. (I'm not a good one for remembering names).

The terms were set at a 2 lap race, pit stops permitted, basic game settings with a 12 point limit. All drivers chose the Formula 1 style racers, with the exception of one "Herby" choosing to start at the back of the pack.

Herby initially trash talked his way to the front of the pack for a microsecond of glory, all to no avail, as our youngest driver, (He looked around 6-7) pwned us all, taking the chequered flag while experienced veterans licked their wounds in a track scattered with blazing wrecks, poolside drownings, and stormy tantrums, with only half the field limping home long after the winner had taken the podium, sprayed the schampers, finished lunch, packed and gone home.

Tim was not impressed.
