Another meeting that proved Peter was right as usual in asking for more games to be brought. It would also help if we knew just how many players were planning to turn. up. I wonder who that could be? Do we have to name and shame as per The News of the World. It is easy to add pics.

2. Board Game: Samarkand: Routes to Riches [Average Rating:6.91 Overall Rank:1387]

"A trading game in which you don't trade with the other players. Instead the commodities are displayed on the board in a number of "nomad camps." If your move brings you to a camp, you must present a gift to the camp -- then you can trade your cards for any cards in the camp. You can also buy goods from the deck at "oasis" squares. Once you've amassed a number of a particular commodity, you head for the city where that commodity is bought. There are a few other details to complicate matters, but basically everyone repeats this process until someone has the 500 cash in hand to win the game. Samarkand is an entertaining exercise with no especially brain-taxing strategies to figure out and makes a good family game."

3. Board Game: Lords of Vegas [Average Rating:7.32 Overall Rank:370]

"You and your opponents represent powerful developers in a burgeoning Nevada city. You will earn money and prestige by building the biggest and most profitable casinos on "The Strip," the town's backbone of dust and sin. You start with nothing but parking lots and dreams, but from there you build, sprawl, reorganize and gamble your way to victory. Score the most points investing in the most profitable development companies and putting the best bosses in control of the richest casinos. Put your dollars on the line . . . it's time to roll!

The game board is broken into 8 different areas, each consisting of a number of empty 'lots'. Players build lots by paying money and placing a die of the value matching the one shown on the lot's space onto the lot, along with a casino tile of one of 7 colors. Adjoining lots of the same color are considered a single casino. The casino's boss is the player whose die value is higher than any other in the casino. On each players turn, players turn over a new card representing a new lot they get. The card also is one of the casino colors. Any built casinos of the matching color will score both money and VP. Money is earned for each lot in the casino, where each lot may be owned by a different player. VP goes only to the casino's owner. Players can expand their casinos; try to take over casinos owned by other players; make deals to trade lots, casinos and money; or gamble in opponents' casinos to make more money. Ultimately, though, only victory points matter, and that means making yourself boss of the biggest casinos.

Lords of Vegas contains:

Snazzy game board
4 turn summaries
55 cards
40 chips in 4 colors
48 dice in 4 colors
4 poker chips
Lots of money
45 casino blocks
Rules"

Peter's was right as it took sometime to get this up and running. Nice pieces. It is 80% luck and 20% skill. It over stayed it welcome an unless someone else comment for it , doubt if will reappear

Micah won

"A local city has a problem of un-separated trash left by citizens. Each player is a company that does the trash separation and recycling. By carrying trash to corresponding storage places, a player gets points. However if you carry too much, you must throw trash away illegally! Well, after all, your aim is to get money"

5. Board Game: Foreign Legion [Average Rating:5.66 Unranked]

Tim won

"Players are Foreign Legion agents, each with a mission to locate and secretly observe the clandestine preparations for war of rebels in the fictional sheikdom of As Q’Ara. There are two maps of the place, each made up of four cards with “grid references” for the locations of the various activities of the rebels. In game terms the object is to collect and display a number,of ‘Mission’ cards. The deck comprises twenty-six of these with points values ranging from fifty to five-hundred. There are also eight ‘Unsuccessful Search’ cards to be played in accordance with the location rules for mission cards. These score no points, but count towards the target number of cards. There are also two ‘Spy’ cards in the deck. These are also played in accordance with the location rules, do not count towards the target total of cards, but double the value of all mission cards already exposed by a player. As soon as one player has laid the required number of mission cards, the player with the highest points total on their displayed cards is the winner. The rules suggest playing a number of games to an agreed target score."

6. Board Game: Wild Fun West [Average Rating:5.93 Overall Rank:9804]

Bus stopped play with Tim having 2 out of four sites everone else had one


"In the card game Wild Fun West, players strive to build a small town in the American Wild West, bidding every turn for the building of their choice, be it a Post Office, a Saloon or a Jailhouse. The goal of every player is to construct four out of the six buildings listed on his objective card.

Each turn, players receive money from their professions, then use the money to bid for new professions and to cast votes on the buildings to be added to town. The professions employed by a player influence the income of that player as well as the income of the player on his left, making the game fun and unpredictable. Every profession has up to 4 abilities, banning other professions from the game, adding a bonus for bidding on a specific building and providing extra income if some specific building/profession card is in the game.

There are 12 Character cards from which the players can choose, each with a special ability, adding to the game diversity.

The game ends as soon as the town includes four or more of the buildings listed on a player's objective card, that player being the winner of the game."


A good game that need a player aid that showed who kills who. We spennt to much time looking at each others cards before playing. Looking forward to giving this a real chance.
