Taught by Graeme...with lots of comments about the Steve Jackson pedigree...surprisingly good!

Edit: ...or was it taught by Tim? My mind is a blur! Anyway, thanks!

Played a 5 player game with Billy, Warren, Katie and JM, very enjoyable especially as I unusually won.

A bit of vintage gaming here with this Avalon Hill racing classic. Myself, Oliver, Nyssa, Dean, Jason and Warren were involved in a two lap race which was very close and won eventually by Warren.

Adrian, Paul and I had a learning game of this.

I learned that if you get into a position with only nine Euros left you can no longer participate in the game. blush

I called Eight is Enough as the winner with only 25% of the race done, not that I bet heavily on it, and it did win.

A 7 (or 8) player game with me owning the winner, betting on second and third and Jason and Genevieve still winning.

This game is broken.

Good way to start the day. Lauren, (?..sorry) and I played to 8 VP's. Some tension due to the lack of 'skill' at dice-rolling, but a great come-from-behind victory with 5VP's by the winner in 1 round to end the game.

Lauren and I taught Ian, Trish and (?..sorry). We only played one year, but I managed to hole-up in one region, avoid most of the fighting and peasant revolts and romped home on points. Somehow no one else shared my gleeshake

This has always been one of my favourite Cheap Ass Games, and Rob and I were delighted to play someone else's copy - I'm not sure whose it was, but it was very cool.

There were 5 or 6 of us playing.

Peering through the ferns in the hotel lobby, hoping not to get spotted.

Ducking into the Cafe Spud to pick up some juicy gossip, tiptoe past Captain Parks and dash back to the Club to regale the members with tales of Everest and the Amazon...

Sue brought in her brand new, unplayed Illuminati game and proceeded to destroy groups as was right and proper being the Servants of Cthulhu.

I was the Network, but just couldn't find any transferable power that wasn't snapped up by others.

The mysterious UFOs, as Kylie, won the game!

It was good to play this again, it's been ages.

Funky Yahtzee, more interesting than the Catan Dice Game. Played with Sue, Brad and Genevieve.

Played 4 fast and furious games of this with initially Jason teaching and then Breaker, Hong and another ( sorry, name escapes me) battling thru the deck. I was more impressed after some additional cards were substituted into the deck ( Witch and Thief being particuarly good).These boosted the interaction...you can't beat using 'Throne Room' to play Witch or Thief twice in a turn to pile on the curses or steal the gold.Managed to win twice, but got carried away with my own evil plans in the last game and forgot to actually buy the VP cards..oh well...

A great game taught to Craig, Ernest and myself by Rob. Fun game albeit although we were playing the basic version.

The Germans (Rob and Rich) crushed the British and Italians (Ernest and Craig respectively) with Rob landing the final shot to take Ernest down whilst Craig went for a dignified retreat. I (Rich) also won the award for getting the most damage cards but still being alive with only 9 of my 10 hit points depleted after about 14 cards laugh

In the 2nd game (at the end of the day), Oliver, Ernest and I who were the Germans again, played against Nyssa, Hong and Craig. After much fierce fighting the end was in sight when Richard's large rear firing gun crashed into a mountain (or as Oliver said, treasonously retreated) with Ernest being shot down and Oliver defending the fort, 3 vs 1. Oliver then made a hasty retreat as the Allies triumphed.

Simple game which is fun, fun, FUN!

Andrew, Gracie, Aiden, Ernest and I played this with Ernest and I being the new comers to the game.

Kingsburg has an interesting mechanic with allocating the dice rolls to advisors and looked in some respects to KGB (except without the purging). Great production values with Gracie taking the game with Ernest 2nd, myself and Andrew equal 3rd after Andrew was defeated by a tough monster, with Aiden rounding it out.

On the plus side, Aiden won the raffle ...

One of my favourite games. Neil, Ernest, myself and later Opalina joined in.

The usual chaos ensued until the 3rd mission where Opalina joined us. Despite never playing before AND joining into the toughest round, her ship was the only one to survive with one solitary alien crew member after the rest of us lost our crew to the Slavers.

Fun and chaos as always!

Played a 5 player game of this to start.
Myself, Nyssa, Jake, Dean and Owen.

Nyssa got to a big early and could not be caught. I thought i was very positioned in 2nd before everyone went the other way around the stream and left my character and Nyssa's stranded. She did end up winning easily though, with me avoiding last place.
