On this hot day, people still turned up and games were played. I seemed to remember at one stage, more than 4 tables were required such were the numbers and games played.

Took flight with this one, with four new galaxy truckers eager to learn.

Usual calamity, disaster and smashed spaceships occurred.

A good time was had by all.

Bill,Andrew Warren and Tim set down to nut this new game out. It was a tough game to learn from scratch but once we gor a couple of rounds things began to flow.

I was really impressed with this game and look forward to another play soon.

I played a four player game with JM, Katie and Opale(?). I found myself in the unfamiliar role of teacher and as usual, was not very good at it. Despite my problems, we picked up the rules fairly quickly and there was much bribing of the overseer taking place. I can't remember who won, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't me.

I played two games of this. The first time saw me teaching at least 4 other adventurers. I know that my horrible teaching of the game impacted on their interest-I've never seen such a risk averse game that everyone made it out alive on their first character. Only I (successfully) risked the lava room.

The second game was with two others that had already played this. Without my bad instructions to guide them, the game moved much faster.

I played a 8 player game of this Despite the greater time taken for people to choose their roles, having more people really adds to the game. We included the queen, and substituted for the witch and magician. Given that we were close to the ending time, we played to 6 buildings. I can't explain why, but I really like this game.
