The last WABA Meet of the 2010-2011 financial year saw gamers gather to play both new and older games, Euro and not so Euro games and generally have a good time.

Richard and I took on Aidden and Simon in Aidden's creation involving one army trying to capture a flag in a castle while the other army tried to hold them off for 20 turns. While this was imspired by an existing scenario, Aidden modified it to allow for 4 players (2 teams of 2) and a larger number of points to draft with.

It was a fun, dice rolling, move and attack game that appealed to the child inside us. Aidden was the first to die and with troops bearing down on the castle, Simon was unable to stop one of my characters flying to the top of the castle and capturing the flag.

Notable moments included a dragon taking down Iron Man and Dr Doom but being killed by human agents with guns, a sniper sniping Captain America to his death and the castle door that managed to stay intact.

It's hard to know how to describe this game-a set collecting, card game with point manoeuvring and borrowing money doesn't sound like an accurate description or a good game, but on the first count it sort of is and on the second count it is.

With each player controlling 2 companies, I managed a win with 80 points over Richard with 72 and Gracie on 68 (her first time). I would like to try this with 6 players as the decisions would be much tighter and more crucial.

This dexterity based cooking game saw several plays that day. In my game, Richard's move to swap his incomplete dish for my completed one backfired when I was able to complete my new dish for more points. Once the game ended, I managed to win with 15 points (including a successful crepe flip on my first turn) over Richard on 14, Rowland 13 and Alistair on 11.

From memory, my offering included crepes, ox tail (soup), rabbit in rice and chocolate mousse.

Aliens have come to conquer Earth, but we are the aliens and the competitive version, are competing with each other to get to 8 points by conquering various areas which have different point values and random human heroes and groups of resistence defending it.

David reached 8, with myself of 2 and Richard on 1. It's not a deep game and does not pretend to be one, and I'm currently a bit indifferent about it. I wouldn't mind a go at the cooperative aspect to see if I am more enthusiastic about it.

Your four captins were Richard, Aidden, myself and a joint team from Simon and David, the first timers.

I'd like to say it was a successful trip for all involved, but it's a bit dissapointing when no one's ship threatens to or actually does get destroyed

Richard finished on 92, Aidden 80, Simon/David on 26 and I limped back to base on 11.

2 games of this finished off the gaming night. Note to self: before playing a game, make sure you remember all relevant rules, or you will do something stupid like forgetting that every dollar left is worth a point and do something stupid like bidding almost all your money on a not so worthwhile property.

1st game: Hong 68, Ernest and Richard 66, Warren 57
2nd game: Richard 67, Warren 64, Hong 63, Ernest 44
