Miss B has been a bit more up for gaming over the last week or so, helped along by a find in a local charity shop of a working Boggle Flash set, which has been a really fun toy to play with.

Played with Miss B...
 7   Push It x2 - she's proving to be better than me at this, but then it seems that most people are better than me!
 6   Dragon Slayer - I still don't think there's much of a game here, but I still enjoy playing it from time to time!
 6   Boggle Flash x6 - some of these plays were solo, but Miss B loves this.
 6   Scrabble Scramble - not a bad quick travel alternative to Scrabble, but a little flakey.
 7   Skirrid - nostalgia for me (I used to play this with my grandmother), and Miss B really enjoyed this.
 4   Tri-Ominos - this one didn't go so well, though; not a great experience.

Played with adults...
 7   Cockroach Poker x2 - a new introduction to the lunchtime group, and destined to be a favourite, I think.
 N/A   Biblios x2 - a gift from the wife and our early plays were really promising; could become one of my favourites.

And played solo...
 N/A   Unpublished Prototype x4 - doing a bit more work on a solo/co-op card game that now needs some expanding and putting in front of other players.
 8   Onirim (second edition) - a first try with one of the expansions, and a lucky win!

SATURDAY

On the whole, the hardest thing about any convention is getting yourself sat down and playing your first game. I sensed it wouldn't be too problematic when we arrived to find a game of Paperclip Railways already in progress, featuring the inimicable Boydell, along with Stuart and (young) Billy Burnham. While awaiting their conclusion, Becky and I perched on the end of the table and played a lightning game of Biblios which - rather predictably - she won.

SUNDAY

Sunday was an even harder exercise in 'getting started'. Becky and I rolled up to find lots of heavy games all in progress, so we again kicked off with a brief 2P game. Well, it was supposed to be a single game so we got time for three.

Biblios takes us but 15 minutes. Becky won as usual.

Library of Souls, Book 3 of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

Tim Burton is directing a movie for the first book which my wife and I are super excited about. It's a pretty great read, found in young adult literature section by Ransom Riggs.

Just a great game of set collection combined wit ha card selection and auction mechanism that feels rewarding rather than punishing.

Highly recommended game, a really great design.

8. Provisioning: Players are responsible for providing opponents resources; decision-making involves minimizing the potential of the resources given. Similarly, players may apply resources to a location or action rather than a player, but with the potential for opponents to capitalize (e.g., Lords of Waterdeep - Scoundrels of Skullport, where cubes can be added to action spaces to increase their value). Price-setting falls under this umbrella as well, as seen in Castles of Mad King Ludwig and Isle of Skye.

PLAYER COUNT
Three (two new)

SESSION REPORT
I got crushed twice in our games, which featured aggressive bluffing during the auction phase. One stunner was losing in a category 13-12 despite my assumption that at least one card from the suit was randomly removed from the game.

DISCUSSION
I typically jump at the opportunity to use chapel cards, but my opponents had strong results despite ignoring them. Are they weaker than presumed because you're forsaking the opportunity to gain an actual card?

I've played this with a 70+ yo. The game does take some planning, responsiveness, tracking, and odds estimation, all of which may make it a challenge to win.
