Another great day of game playing. Over 20 people turned up through the day which considering it was a long weekend wasn't too bad.

Andrew Rout won the raffle ($25 Tactics Voucher) thanks to Tactics for supporting our WABA thornlie meetings.

Andrew, Bill, Tim and Kieth sat down to play a first play of this interesting title.

We couldn't work out why we all had so much money and why it was taking so long to get a ship out. About half way through Tim worked out that he had forgotten a rule that you can spen 6 Guilders to buy an extra action on your turn and that your second action could be ANY action.

DOH! The game turned out to be alot more enjoyable after that with Bill coming away with the win if I remember correctly.

I look forward to playing this again with the correct rules from the start this time.

Bill taught this game to Tim and Lee.

Interesting trading game that caps off the Agricola trilogy.

I really like this game but it seems to drag a bit times.

Paul, Bill Andrew and Tim tried out this "classic".

A very steep learning curve on this game, that cannot actually play the game properly until you have played it through at least once.

I feel this game is an abstract with a very thin theme. It does have some interesting mechanics but while I would play it again, I don't think I will be actively looking for one.

Andrew came away with the win I believe.
