Was asked three times if I wanted to join. Every time the answer was yes. Although I couldn't. Eventually they played with three I think.

Main event for me. Not the kind of game I usually go for and all the rules and ways to score points make this seem like a typically overproduced, over-thought Euro with too much going on for it to be worth it. However, it all comes together really well and it's clear to see there is loads of scope for experimenting with strategy. That and 14 different races makes for some good replayability.

Thought I'd messed everything up in turn 4/5 with a couple of terrible decisions but managed to (surprisingly) pull back in the last round to come second. Still 24 points behind Nathan, though.

Two large games by the end. Seriously considering confiscating copies and forcing them to start their own meetup

I know Stuart played this at the end. He probably played some form of Carcassonne too, I just didn't see it.

I saved the world with my medical expertise, passing through great swathes of the Arabian peninsula curing people with my healing hands.

Some other people may have been involved but that's not important right now.

Coup Strategy Tip #78: If you have an Assassin from the get go and wish to use it next turn, do not simply take one coin. You are being really obvious.

Coup Strategy Tip #79: If you perform the boneheaded move referred to at Tip 78 above, do not then try to assassinate the experienced player who just used their Ambassador. They will more likely than not have a Contessa. You idiot.

Despite the above stupidity on my part, I managed to win two out of the three games, thanks to my trusty Captain. I find that I perform much better at this game when not having to contend with Lloyd's Jedi mind tricks.

A three player game of Glen More was had.

Unfortunately, during an early migration between tables (it wasn't my fault, honest guvnor), some of the Stage 1 tiles ended up at the bottom of the Stage 2 stack which screwed up the scoring somewhat.

Despite this, this was very enjoyable indeed once I'd got my head around the rules again. Much whisky was distilled (although not by me), chieftains were appointed (that was me actually) and lovely castles & lochs obtained (me again). In the end, I won out 49-48-32.

Tom #5 (who had played before and thankfully had some clue about the rules as I'd forgot most of them) came second and deemed it a learning game as Claudio hadn't played before and the tiles had been rearranged by the gods of fate. I accepted this with good grace. However, since he's not here, I won and am the best of the Toms not wearing bright pink trousers. So there.

Great game - don't listen to Martin. He knows nothing.

Taught some newbies this under the most cramped conditions imaginable. Unintentionally beat them massively by playing an 8-carriage tunnel.

Sadly, my geek credentials took a serious knock as I had to admit to complete ignorance of this 'franchise' shake
That was the only disappointment - the game itself was great fun! The idea of trucking across the 'verse fulfilling contracts (some dodgier than others and hence more lucrative) really appeals.
