And again in the Masonic Hall, Motherwell.

Busy day, lots of games going on. I didn't see many of them, being full-time at the two I took part in. Once again, I failed to keep to my idea of playing shorter games...

I played this, and really enjoyed this one. Lots of hard-to-read small text on the cards, but the game was so involving, with so many choices, but everything out in the open and available to work out a strategy. Even the variables - dice rolls & card draws - worked within reasonable parameters that you could plan to cope with.

EDIT: I forgot to mention... WE WON!

And Sonia will never forgive us...

I played this, never really got into it. The game seemed reasonable, but it's one of those games where you score each round and have to count up bits from all over the place, and I don't, generally, like those...

EDIT: forgot to mention, didn't win. Didn't come last, mind you...

Very small and quick game in the same guise of Zombie Dice.goo

Ended up with a win; 2-1 for a change.
