This is becoming one of my favourite super-quick fillers. So much better than it looks. It looks.... well... pink.

A perfect short filler for 3-6. Works well with all player counts too.

Played the duplex apartment board - what a disastrous rescue attempt! We forgot to choose any specialists who can actually put out a fire, so just tried to dodge it. Terrible tactic. I enjoyed playing the new "Rescue Dog" prototype rules though!

Second game of Flash Point today, in one of the two-story houses. This went much more smoothly, although to dog is a waste of space on this map. What Rescue Dog worth his salt can't climb a ladder... or open a door.... (or drive a fire engine)?

Great five player race on the BIG Monaco map. Several dramatic crashes led to a few players watching the winners podium from the ocean. Scott romped home in a victory which had become pretty predictable after a handful of turns (although I repeatedly lied to Jules that he was still in with a chance...)

Garnered a bit more feedback on Rob's design. I still think this is a great game, and each set of tweaks brings it closer to being very well balanced, accessible, and strategic.

We're always grateful to new players playing this game (I include myself as part of the design team, although technically billed as "rules editor" by Mr Mills).

To me it feels a lot like Rattus, but dare I say it... better??

Thanks to Clare for letting us play with her quarriors game.

Game works much better with the culling rule, just like she said it would.

Had a fun game of Battlestar with Scott, Ryan, Stephen and Rob.

Keeping with tradition, I was once again a Cylon. I think thats 6 games in a row now. #annoying

On the plus side I managed to avoid suspecion by being the one to throw my cylon cohort into the brig, and managed to keep my identity monstly secret, until I also threw Apollo "Scott" Adama into the brig.

Had a fun game of Chaos in the old world to finish off the day, with 3 new comers, Tom, Cris and Nicki.

Despite loosing the game I still think Khorne is to powerfull though. It's really easy for Khorne to get tokens on their Dial, while Tzeetch needs to build up to it. Meanwhile Nurgle and Slaanesh are limited to adding 2 and 3 tokens at most per turn (respectively) which can be stopped by killing their cultists.

I still think it's a great game, but it would be better if Khorne was balanced. I was speaking to Cris after the game, and I agree the game would work better if Khorne needed to get 2 kills for a token instead of 1.

It was still a fun game though, made better by Tom stealing the victory from me at the last instant.

lol

I came third in this one, and Adrian fourth; I'm glad Bill got to play it, given that it's one of his favourite games and he'd brought it along to the games day. Michael seemed to enjoy it too, so hopefully we'll see one or both again.

I had a dodgy hand of tickets to begin with, and although I managed to scrape up a few more points by risking pulling tickets later in the game a couple of times, the combination of bad tickets and short train stretches did me no good. I'm a little disappointed I missed out on longest route by one carriage, but I'd still have been third even with it

Clare hooked the four of us up to a game of Octopus Garden with (I think) the parrot fish thrown in. I won, despite having absolutely no idea what I was doing and hardly any money most of the game. I don't think this is a game I'd go out and buy, but as quirky fillers go it's interesting.

While there was no tournament, and I 'observed' rather than playing, the glorious Imperial fleet saved us all from the rebellious terrorist sect ironically known as "The Alliance" for the most part. Thanks to all who played for allowing me to make notes and ask stupid questions.

DoctorMike

P.S. next time I promise I'll play
