The cancellation of Tuesday's meetup made for an unusually busy Monday, and it was great to see loads of newbies again. I was also pleased to meet several people who were at LoB for the second time - not much use attracting new people if they don't come back!

Good to see a lively game of this already going when I arrived. I think this one could do rather well in the LoB end of year poll. Despite some early struggles, they managed a respectable 18.

Six-player Eclipse was just setting up as I arrived and just packing down as I left, four hours later. Good work guys!

"Absolutely epic four-hour six-player game of Eclipse. Brilliant fun - made my week! Now I know this game is utterly brilliant with a large lively group, I must do it again. Keep in touch everyone and let me know if you want a rematch when you're back in town - next time, either the Planta will spread across the galaxy like a weed, or my race will be wielding plasma missiles AND an engine wahahahahahahahah!"

After some discussion of which version of Westeros they were going to visit, a group settled on the card game rather than the board game.

Three men, one woman and their dogs tried to round up sheep. A very close game with everyone taking turns to lead, before I just got ahead at the end with a lone sheep reaching the summit.

Hadn't played this for ages and was thinking of selling it, but I really enjoyed it this time! Bonnie-Kate's invisible white line almost got her the win, but she came up short by just a single point. Muahaha.

And in this one, the card that screwed me at Eastbourne (Impression; Sunrise) came to my aid as I now knew its precise year. I don't think I can play this much more before adding an expansion pack.

Two rounds, 6p then 5p. In the first John declared that he wouldn't like it but would probably do well, as it's a bluffing game. He was right about the second part, I'm not sure about the first.

The second round had an amazing opening. All five players claimed Duke for 3 coins, then B-K did it again. I assassinated her (holding two Contessas) and she let me. Then Gabi assassinated her, she called him, and he did have an Assassin

"I had a decent privilege because it enabled me to get more cards. I came from behind because someone belatedly had to play the card where we all got our discs back from the centre, and then I was able to be in good defensive aliliances picking up more good cards. Best was that RHO who had the ability to take discs from colonies I avoided in attack and defence except once early in the game. I ended up with 23, 17, x3, x2, +5, +5, +3 and many other cards so I could be confident of victory when it was my turn with three discs out." Nigel

"I went for the first time for hospice as my first building and it paid off as I was soon able to take Settler three times and so get a quarry with a colonist on it. Two players took a tobacco roaster early and so the other two could have killed off my chances altogether by taking the third and final one. But I got good production going and the large market helped." Nigel

Went fishing again. It still feels to me like a simpler version of Race for the Galaxy, but it’s probably only me that thinks so.

The game that was 7 Wonders before 7 Wonders existed. We (though I blame the others who were sitting next to him rather than me) let Ricardo get 6 little Dragons which let him wipe the floor with the rest of us.

Gabi has a 6th sense for BBMM, the moment it is hauled out, he is already at the table ;O)
As it was Gabi and I with 4 newbies to BBMM, it was a close contest between Gabi and me to be the clear victors. However, a speedy final read by gabi caused much confusion, and Mayte took the win, coming from no-where!

7 is probably a bit too many for this game, but still fun.
Bloody cockroaches!

This was a hilarious game, as Gabi was screwed over twice by people not even looking at the card, and guessing what it was correctly, even guessing a Royal! of course, Gabi falsely said they were wrong both times, the poor chap!
