Wasn't sure who would post this list, so I've taken the initiative. Great venue, seasoned crowd, some meaty games...

Perfect 'getting to know you' ice-breaker. 5 player game that had the outsider coming through in the second half of the race to take an unexpected (and under-wagered) win.

Two consecutive games of Castle Panic played. A great gaming session that has soundly surpassed my initial low expectations of this game. Richard was Chief Inquisitor, ferreting-out the traitors amongst us, whilst Kieth bagged the wounded goblins and trolls to take the individual win on both occasions. The second game ended with only one castle wall left standing.

Vanilla Arkham, played with Kieth, (..sorry) and me, later joined by Hong and Lauren. 3 hours flew by and, despite my repeated assertions that Yig was the easiest GOO to defeat (and to Richard's goading glee!!) we were soundly thrashed in the final fight. I'll bring a few expansions to the next meet and see if we can tip the balance in the investigators' favour.

Played with Nathan and Jordan, a wonderful throwback and still a good game. I succumbed early to the nefarious traps left behind by the evil wizard. Jordan got to the last room before the exit and just missed out on leaving by a single turn! Nathan however strode heroically into the dragons lair, looted a golden goblet from under its nose and left the complex well before sundown to enjoy his new riches.

Played a shortened game with Tim, Billy, JM and Katie. I preferred Intrigue to the original and now prefer this one of them all! Much wailing and gnashing of teeth due to the action card selection!

Taught to us by Tim (thank you Tim). Played by Tim, Billy, Nathan, Jordan, Paul and myself. Quick and fun game of boulder dodging and raging torrent swimming. Billys attempts to sabotage the rickety bridge came to nought as everyone else threw themselves in the rushing river. My memory is a bit vague but I believe Nathan was the Indiana Jones at the end, whilst I got swept away never to be seen again.

Taught this to Tim, JM and Katie. A racing game with violence it has much more controllable luck than Formula De, and much more interaction! Turns out I am the Mad Max and the others were left handcuffed to their fully fuelled burning cars with only a rusty hacksaw to escape with.

Played two games of this, first with Rob, Tim and I. The second added Paul.

I think the lessons learnt is just how brutal the economy of Agricola can be.

Played two games of this. It's a bit of fun but. It's a "push your luck" kind of game.

Tim, Bronwyn, Rob and I tried this for the first time.

We only played half a game, but by the time we had to leave we found it was ticking along quite nicely.

We'll be faster next time - it's very interesting.

I like the gritty future dystopia gumshoe feel.

Thanks to Paul for teaching this to us. David's forces of Khorne wrecked havoc over the old world with Nurgle (me) bearing the brunt of the attacks and foolishly spread out his forces too thinly. Meanwhile Tzeentch and Slaneesh conquered the sides of the old world and gradually expanded into the central battle.

in the end, Slaneesh (that's the purple one right?) pulled off a ruination that won him the game whilst the Chaos god Nurgle had seen the error of his ways and defected to the Old World's side laugh

Taught the basic set to Andrew, Gracie and Aiden. After a tight game, Aiden managed to win and I may have brought over more gamers to the addictive 'cult' of Dominion.

A neat fun filler. Thanks to Stephen for teaching us. Somehow, despite coming last, I managed to fluke a win by blocking another player which pushed my pieces into the exact combination for winning laugh
