Bed, bad food and BoardGameGeek

Blog went slightly less live than planned today. Combination of a stressful week (I had job interviews), a very late night and sudden excess of game rules learning meant I totally crashed once I stopped for fish and chips on the beach.

After a power nap, a pretty awful dinner at the hotel and a Deucher's, I'm back in the game. And by game, I mean The BoardGameGeek Game, which actually isn't as bad as people keep telling me it is, although I think I've found the recipient of the Curtis award in Keith.

Prior to that I had a quick game of The Ark of the Covenant, which I think is one of the better Carc variants, and I'm now gearing up for the night with a replay of Tigris & Euphrates, mainly so Scott and Dan can try and screw up Martin's chances of winning the Kniziathon.

The substandard food drove quite a few LoBsters out for dinner which left the games room weirdly empty for some time, but things seem to have picked up with people starting long games, including the obligatory BSG which, rather amusingly, is being played in the bar as a group of orange-hued native Eastbourners drunkenly leave a function downstairs. Heaven knows what they'll make of it.
