A rainy day is always a great excuse for playing a game or three, as if one was needed . . .

A learning game for Craig, Jackie, Lauren and me. Perhaps not the best of Rosenberg's 'harvest trilogy', but a mentally stimulating game none the less. Hopefully a few more plays will reduce the AP and resulting play time from what was 4 hours into a more manageable 2-3. Jackie won on 18 happiness points, Lauren came second with 17, Craig and I tied on 16 but he beat me due to more cash in hand. (I thought I'd taken out second place, but was reminded about the loan I'd taken early in the game which dropped me back one spot!)

Uwe take two! Can't say that this is my favourite game, but it was a good change after the brain burn of 'Loyang'. Believe it or not, we placed in exactly the same order as our previous game after ending this one a little early.

This interesting and challenging game was fought out by Bill, Yvonne, Mikey and Tim finishing in that order.

After winning my last two games I tried a different strategy that did not work at all. This game is much about being flexible with good short term choices critical. I look forward to my next play.

Thanks to Billy we had a shot at trying this new Wallace game. It was very learning heavy with quite a few rule problems being worked out on the fly. Billy took the game out but with the rule errors it was hard to see the actual flow of the mechanics.

With Jason joining us to make the five from our previous Macao session this game it was a good time but assessment of this "Brass Lite" game will have too wait for rules clarification and another play. With that said I am strangely looking forward to it, which is usually a good sign.

The Fists managed 173 points with only the loss of 1 marine. Great game, will need to give Paul a rematch next meet! Great work from the Red and Blues.

Thanks for teaching me this Paul. Especially the bit about not reshuffling the discards into a new draw pile. Made my first win easy but you earnt your victory in the rematch (using the proper rules this time)

A fun game of dice rolling through the ages.

I came out on top in our game but there were a series of games being played of this one.

Thanks to Jason for loaning us a copy!

This was a quick two player game between Roger and I. Finishing in just over 30 minutes, it was hard battle with Roger getting 10 food and 10 people with me being the tool man.

Despite all this, the population won out with a 30 point lead.
Fast and furious!

After 2 games of this back to back with an Epic refight of Alex the great vs Darius (the less than great), I felt like I'd been trampled by an Elephant.

Works well as a multiplayer game and new players seemed to pick it up fairly quickly.

2nd game was close with 12-10 the closing score. Thanks to Roger for setting this up again.

Players were Chairman Stew, Warren, Breaker, Dean, Mark (?), Roger, myself and young Owen, who is very good at this game and attacks like a pro.

Hope no one thinks me rude for adding games I saw being played but did not participate in myself. I'll edit/ delete my entry if the participants post their own report on this geek list.


GOT LCG was being played at the table next to ours. I am a big COC LCG fan (and completist!) and would love to give this one a go at some stage to compare the two. A much better multiplayer LCG than COC, or so I've heard.

Galaxy Trucker was in session at a table across from ours, and an exciting game it sounded too. Rare is the WABA event at which this game is not played.

We had a full compliment playing this.

When in doubt, drink it! Whether it's a whirlpool, a mild storm or fire, when in doubt drink it!

Not such a good run for me. Spent the entire game resignedly sex changed and unresignedly insane.

But even a 'bad' game of this is fun for me.

I think we had a neck and neck finish there, but one of the necks was not mine.
