Multiple plays for this one - LoB game of the year?

Paul, Annette, Dan and I had a slow start but managed to get in the groove for a respectable 21 - my joint highest so far. Anyone managed a 25 yet?

Classic Sid Sackson deduction game from 40 years ago turned out to be really good. It's a bit like everyone's trying to solve the same Sudoku puzzle at once, but starting with different numbers filled in. Dan turned out to be much better at it than everyone else and announced the solution when I was nowhere near.

Dan was keen to learn this one too and took to it like a duck to water. I just about managed to prevail in the end with 7 locations linked for a bumper Merchants scoring.

Evil, counterintuitive trick-taking. I'm still much better at avoiding the negative points than actually scoring any for myself. Dan was miles ahead but a disastrous last round almost cost him the game.

Seemed to take most of the night, but was enjoyed.

"Played Terra Mystica which I really enjoyed. Plenty going on, lots of decisions to make. Interaction is subtle rather than confrontational, I think this might grow on me!" Simon H

20. Board Game: Carcassonne: 10 Year Special Edition [Average Rating:7.72 Unranked] [Average Rating:7.72 Unranked]

A four player game of this to finish the night. One had never played before but knew the rules. One had only played the iOS version. The third had played dozens of times but never with farmers! The fourth was good looking and particularly charming. There are only seven green meeples in this copy so my score was marked with the only red meeple. Blue had only six meeples so two dice stood in for his missing pieces. We might need to check the contents of the box.

What could have been a shambles was actually plenty of fun and I was so knackered by this point that the no farmers rule was actually a welcome relief. I should have used one of the ten year tiles to split a huge town though, d'oh!
