For some reason I'd put myself down as available to host the day after I returned from a week long folk festival, still I just about made it there and here are the games which were played.

There were no train games played at this meetup, a success which more than makes up for Munchkin's appearance last time I hosted. Still the usual suspects were here and starting off with this instead.

As usual the Agricola tournament was present but with a non-tournament game as well featuring those players too scared to join Dan's Babelesque edifice.

Definitely seems to be gaining traction at LoB and it'll be interesting to see how long this hot streak lasts. Still as a game it definitely deserves it, nice trade-offs between short term points and long term development and the factions are pleasingly different.

I got drawn into my first game with all the different tiles in the anniversary edition and new encounter cards including a 4th round. Definitely a game of extremes with final scores of 139, 36, 0 and 0.

Another ever present game at the weekend meetups, the players did seem to have learned from previously and this one seemed to finish in a reasonable length of time.

What did our friendly neighbourhood train gamers go on to after Innovation? Surely they'd steer clear of more games of desperately trying to eke every last pound of profit out.

That said Scott did lose a game so clearly the break is already having it's effects.

I was very pleased to be introduced to this neat hand management/auction game disguised as a racing one. Was rather neat though the auctions got a bit samey towards the end with no one really pushing the prices up.

Speaking of fun gaming more devastation was spread to the beleaguered peoples of the Old World.

Thanks to Rocky's house rule we not only had to deal with the additional perils of the Festival Season Expansion but also 4 separate demands for taxes. This saw all of us failing to pay at least some of it with two of the 4 players getting -30 and -36 points at the end due to missed payments.

Not in fact the train gamers, a completely different set of people starting quite late on to try an escape a Martin Wallace debt spiral.

Another new game as Karl taught me and Rocky this game of running away from Atlantis and picking up junk while doing so.

The final game of the night as always though some had been playing it for a while before I joined in. It turns out to be easier to win as a spy when Merlin is certain you're good.

I'm sure I saw someone playing Love Letter, someone must have played Love Letter, it is impossible for an LoB session to happen without someone playing Love Letter!
