Once more unto the Motherwell Masonic Hall, once more, and fill the wall up with our... meeples... and little plastic monsters...

Back in the main hall, thankfully, and a high turnout, including a lot of new faces. If you played a game that's not on the list, please add it, if you see one you did play, please comment.

Ticket to Ride seems to be the new King of Tokyo, played every week.

I lose every week, this week was no exception. shake Split my attention too much over 4 tickets, should have concentrated on the big scores more. I completed the biggest one, but all 3 others were one link away from completion... cry

A 4 player game of this odd tea-towel game. Got one rule wrong, the Heavy Rucksack should not count as a hand card. But we all played by the same rule, so it was fair.

Score could have been worse. I was equal last... shake

Been wanting to try this for a while as I got it last Christmas, as often happens with FFG, i got put off by the rulebook.

I'm indebted to Andy Duncan for taking us through it, we played the Scattered scenario and although we didn't quite get it finished we were in a clear winning position by the time we had to wrap up.

Really think I've got to grips with the rules, will need to get it back to the table soon.

Loooong, but fun! There's a good mix of strategy and randomness, but there wasn't enough fighting/PvP for some in our group...

Finally got this to the table courtesy of Other Doug with a rules explanation. A good fun filler, although I can see it taking anywhere from 10 minutes to the best part of an hour!

Little 2p card game played by Gavin and Nik before closing time. It's a pretty cut throat little beastie which holds a special place in my heart sauron Apparently not enough killing was done so Nik won on points at the end of the deck.

I was part of a big group of playing this and the first game was my favourite of all time.

Introduced this game to Logan and Molly. Started playing it but Logan jumped in and I covered for him when he used the facilities. Logan won so I guess technically so did I!!

This is one of my all time favourites. Rhona, Finn, Mary Kate, Mirren, Mirren, Gill, Grace and I all played. I was a Neutral and my win condition was for the person immediately on my right to win. I was doing quite well with that but we ran out of time unfortunately. Another time maybe....
