Rob and I taught a shortened version of this to Opalina and Andrew. We had an excellent game. Opalina took it upon herself to gather research on "A Connoisseur's Guide to Tasting Magical Whirlpools" while Andrew went on to collect a whole range of terrible statuses. However, it seemed that Envious did him quite a bit of good. With no choice but to attack anyone who seemed better of than him he soon gathered a lot of loot.

Rob seemed to have a penchant for attracting ugly beasts to him, while I knew I was on the trail of my mother's lost cousin, by the fact that as soon as I entered the region he was lost in, I became badly lost too!

Rob wavered in and out of sanity, as did others. Having someone choose your actions for you has its advantages sometimes...in fact it seemed that sanity is definitely optional, and occasionally a liability.

A great game with a heap of laughs, which I think observers and players alike very much enjoyed.

Rob won, Andrew, myself and Rob ended up in Bagdhad at the end, but Rob won the tiebreaker.

I saw this being played. I really want to have a go of it some time!
Alas, we had an evening commitment so couldn't stay after 5.00pm

I broke from my Swancon self imposed Galaxy Trucker exile to teach this to Richard, Ernest and Chris.

As expected I won comfortably, prior knowledge being pretty handy, but then left the three of them to tackle it on their own in a second game.

The surprise hit of them all. Feels like you're at the races! So much fun, a definite hidden gem. As Tim says, "Don't knock it until you try it"

Taught by Tim, played by Tim, Bill, Stephen and myself. A solid euro design with good mechanics, possibly let down by its dryness.
Bill was way ahead at the end!

The first game played at WABA South!

Took it out of the box, puched it an played it!

Steve R, Steve G, Craig M. Billy and David went head to head on this interstellar "Settlers". A good review was given by all.

I sat this one out and taught it best I could having only played demos online the night before.

I played a game of Pandemic with Andrew, Nathan and Jordan (I have the German edition of the game, with the large board and even larger cubes!). We thought we were doing well and managed to cure 2 viruses, but the blasted multiplying blue cubes soon overtook Europe in chain outbreaks and then it was too late. Oh well, maybe next time!
