And again in the Masonic Hall, Motherwell.

A very odd day indeed, I won 2 out of 3 games! I stayed busy playing most of the day & never saw much of what anyone else played, so I'll list what I'm told was played & leave it to others to comment.

Good game this one, took a few hours but played well.

Unfortunately, the English won. This tragedy was mitigated somewhat by the fact I was playing them - I actually won a game!

Must admit, after turn 3 I though I'd lost, but I managed to force the Scots into losing a lot of units over Winter, and built up strength from there...

An odd game of Pandemic, not only did we win, but it actually seemed easy, and very very quick! With just the 4 Epidemics in the deck, the combination of the Dispatcher & Scientist (plus two others) proved well up to the task. But we must have had luck on our side to go through 3 Epidemic cards with not a single Outbreak!

We had a half hour to kill at the end of the day, so this filled the time nicely. Different version to the one I played before, I hadn't realised some of the roles differed too! I got confused as to what was my 'hand' a few times, and threw away some rounds, eventually losing in a 3 player match,

A good game, but not one I'd play for much longer than 30 minutes a time.

Somewhere up the back of the hall, Dragon Age was played. Not sure which set, there are more RPG items under Dragon Age in RPGG than I'm familiar with.

Conveniently keeping them out of earshot of the kids in the main hall, I believe a bunch of folks played this in the upstairs room...
