Although the company was fine - Craig, Mia, Gemma...and "2 others" (Sorry!), I found this co-op a clever combination of boring and fiddly.

With thanks to Steve G. for teaching.

We died.

Warren taught this to me, with Oliver, Nyssa and Jeremy along for the trip.

Despite taking 79(?) days and being first back to London I managed to come in second.

Very enjoyable - might look to pick this up.

Cute, silly game.

A lot harder than it looks.

Terry, Tim and I watched Steve go down the plughole. Ordinarily this would be bad, but it is how you win.

Good game about racing sleds pulled by huskies.

A bit tricky to get your head around steering the sled using the dogs and brake effectively, but I wonder if once you have that sorted out if the game offers replayability.

Six sleds slid surprisingly smoothly slashing snow sidewards.

Even with a driver change mid race, Tim and Jason crossed the line ahead of me in second. Then there were four others behind me.

Who they were is less important than the fact that they were snow TAILING me.

Andrew, Oliver, Stephen....

Liked this a lot.

I especially like the way everyone can choose a different path to the first target and then all converge on it before all heading off in different directions towards the second target.

You are never quite sure what the race order is as players are continually increasing and decreasing travel speed.

In a three race series between six drivers, my strongest recollection is that I was in an unbeatable position in race one before handing over the boat to Terry...

Taught to Dave and David with Bill and Pauls help. My alternate strategy seemed good in my head, but not so good in reality. Bill won with Dave keeping him honest with a close second place. I like this expansion and can't imagine playing Kingsburg again without it.

4 players with Jocelyn, Graeme, Ernest and myself.
Great Euro game, although wouldn't hit the table much in my groups.

After getting stuck in the North of Germany, Jocelyn came out with a huge expansion into Western Germany to just overtake the king of the West and Central Germany, Graeme, for the win. Alas the newbies (Ernest and I) muddled our way through from the Central to northern areas of Germany in our "modest" power plants laugh

Fine market mechanism.

Renato's brand new game.

Craig, Michael, Mel, Renato, Ernest and I played this.
A great game with Mel taking out the honours with her wizards, spirit halflings and underworld orcs.

Wooden spoon went to Ernest with his race which became to be known as the "pansy giants" who lost to the elves and halflings time and again. Talk about a disgraceful race! laugh

I have never won this game and this continued, being beaten by ALL the newbies, Craig, Michael, Mel and Renato. Sigh, just got to keep trying!

Great game meeplemeeplemeeplemeeplemeeple

Thanks to Steve for teaching us this game.

Steve, Ernest and I played this but only got about 1/6th the way through. Despite that, it was a fun experience and when we stopped, the scores were still pretty close.

Great game that I'll definitely have to play again soon

Introduced some WABA guests to this game, started slow but before we knew it we were all yelling and jostling for that lucrative first position. Game took about 40 minutes, but it certainly kept you on the edge of your seat near the end.

Mary won, but who's counting... Great gateway game.

Played a couple of games of this, one with ariaflame, Rob and a new fellow, James was it? I believe ariaflame took that one.

Had another game of it later, with Sue, Kylie, Gracie and Hong - where I just raced away with Eastern Europe.

I like this game so much I can win it with a pre-migraine and not enough sleep. I like this game SO MUCH I can enjoy losing it with a pre-migraine and not enough sleep.

Arrrr!

Thanks for the games folks!

I know this got played and that Rob was in it and won. With my headache I bowed out, and played TTRE instead, which I can play in my sleep just about.

We taught this to a couple of people as our first play. It's a pretty cute game - well structured and balanced, and ends surprisingly quickly!

It's a fun little filler.

I ducked away from ordering lunch to help teach this to the gradparents/grandkids family who visited the club. I think...Mary? won when I enquired later.

They seemed to be enjoying it when I went to devour my steak sandwich.
