Adding this list for Csilla, who is still in denial about her addiction and refuses to sign up to BGG... So if you have any complaints about the commentary, please blame her

Csilla: Carcassonne - without Stuart. In fact he totally did not play Carc at all yesterday. I know. The world is coming to an end.

John brought and taught this 90s Spiel de Jarres winner which, apart from some dodgy card art, has stood the test of time well. A simple game to teach but with tricky decisions and a lot of heartache! John won, naturally, although it was very close between us all. Good fun.

I jumped into this nice little take on the Ra scoring system next. It was fun to play, and I think my better half will like it, but personally I prefer the agonising decisions and psyching out of the original. I came a close second,, although I'm not sure skill had anything to do with that.

Csilla: Nathan totally screwed Stuart over at the last minute, making him lose shitloads of point and coming last (see meetup). Such a cool little game.

(Note: I presume it was this game - didn't see it, never heard of it)

Sam also enjoyed Ra dice but hadn't played the original - while he also said he liked bidding games - so it seemed rude not to break out the original. The three of us (with Stuart) had a real laugh with it and I managed to end the evening with a win.

Csilla: Ra got played twice. Jee is on a mission to learn a new game every time so i handed him over to john who taught him ra. I know i'm such a good host.
