Thanks to that darn Agricola tournament, it was tricky to host, as there were quite a few newbies, and not enough old hands to teach the games. Luckily Edward's game started late so he could do some filler games!

the first time I played Get Bit, I thought it was a bit **it - but I enjoyed it slightly more this time, swimming to a second place with no legs.

It doesn't take a fortune teller to guess that this game was probably being played at some stage of the evening!

I think this was played, someone was holding a bag aloft and shouting for opponents in his quest for love. If it was me, I would have just quietly written the princess a letter without informing the whole kingdom she is single, and snuck off for a night of debauchery!

Poor Steuart struggled with this one, not quite seeming to understand the goals, and trying to get as many allies as possible, even though the goal was to not get any allies - his defense was that in any situation, you always need allies!
We had a weird 3 card combo, in which you got fame for having evil allies, and you also got fame for not having evil allies, so you could just ignore evil cards and be gauranteed one fame!

There was some slow decision making here of where to go and how many guards to play, resulting in a pretty long game. Nathan kicked our butts with his speedy horses and extreme tax collecting skills!
A game with such a dull theme, but actually a really good game!

for what looks like a nice family friendly game, this one seems a bit vicious! If you are always stuck being the 2nd last choice, that would really suck! Glad I got to play this at last, a pleasant enough game.

At a secret location in safe distance from the foul stench of the farmers' multi-solitaire masturbation competition party we played this great resource management, racing game.

You can quite possibly win or lose the game during the setup only to find out a couple of hours later as it is very important to choose the right combination of riders and strategy for the given stage's terrain to squeeze out the most efficient movement per energy.

With a number of new LOB fans of this game I look forward to hopefully play it more often.
