All the news that's fit to print from the exciting new venue, Doctor Butler's Old Head, or something like that. The room had windows, sturdy tables and a high ceiling. Less happily the bar was several flights of stairs away.

Some silly person calling herself Judy Chainsaw or something was the host, so this is just what I saw being played, add your happy gaming memories below.

No snow in Egypt or wherever this is. Indiana Jones made the Ark cool, Stuart is on a one man quest to rectify that.

And this. I think multiple games at the same time. Getting a bit out of hand this is, we should form an underground resistance movement. Oh but they'd love that wouldn't they.

I spent the entire evening playing this, it is really excellent, silly as you like, I got to kill William Wallace, but sadly my american footballer was too stupid to commit the war crime I intended.

More news coming in, I've received a list from from Sally Chainsaw herself!

I saw this being played now I think about it, they looked like they were having fun, which is correct.

A big group of people playing this. Before play commenced I heard someone say "Can you take over reading the rules out to everyone, I need to go to the toilet."

Seemed to take forever once it got started, possibly not the hilarious party experience that was promised.

Another outing for this Kiesling/Kramer game that is slowly building some fan support. I spoke to Paul about the prospect of entering the World Championship for PoC going on at Essen.

Paul then did the decent thing and beat me easily.

Two quick plays of Hanabi where we discovered that Zed doesn't remember clues and Whopper still can't play this without cheating.

I love teaching this to people, just to see the moment of realisation as they find out clever ways to playing this.

Ildi taught this to me and Jonathan. Ben, Andy and Daniel had played before. Came down to a 3-way standoff between the sherrif, Renegade and Deputy.
