Since no one else seems to be doing it, why not me.

A strangely sleepy Tuesday night, in which (despite Essen occurring the weekend before) almost everyone seemed to want to play silly or frivolous games. Why, even Riccardo asked if anyone wanted to play 18XX.

How we laughed.

This is what was played. ... next time, why not join us for a game ?

The latest Czech Games release is a spiritual cousin to Infarkt, in that it comes in a ridiculously compact box, features zany black humour, and most of the words on the cards have an inadequate number of vowels. It ups the ante by encoding each cards effects as a series of icons, which will make the Race for the Galaxy fans happy.

Summary: not as ludicrous as Infarkt, but pretty ludicrous.

Now that we've followed the novel idea of having a copy of King of Tokyo at the club, we can actually play the expansion. I saw Ed "Boom Boom" Morland instructing some people in this, just after they'd played the worlds most animated session of ...

Yes, an excited game of Settlers, with lots of laughter. Normally, I'd defend Settlers but as a curmudgeon, in this case I'll make an exception.

This expansion to Coup got a thorough working out. Such a simple mechanic and so clever: Not me, him! Lots of fun. We even managed to get Paul Watson into a game, who looked as if he was passing a kidney stone.

Bijan played a game of Eclipse quietly in the corner, and it finished and slipped away quietly. It was better that way.

I know nothing about this game, but I'm sure that if I played, I would hate it.

Was this "The Accountants of Babylon"? If it doesn't have Agricola's baby-vomit-and-poo colour scheme, it's already looking good.

This was rumoured to be about, but may just have been swamp gas, the moon or a hypnagogic hallucination.
