And again in the Masonic Hall, Motherwell.

A cold, driech day, dull when we went into the hall, dark when we came out.

Still, it's November in Scotland, what do you expect! yuk

A lot of games got played by a lot of players today. Quite a busy day for all.

I started on this nice little (well, not so little...) game. I guess it's a wimp game or a wareuro by calandale's standards, but it may be verging on a wargame, given that different unit types have different strengths & abilities...

Anyway, a good game, even though the rebellious colonial scum won the day. I was heartened by the fact that I was one of those rebellious colonial scum, mind you... Yes, another win as the bad guys. shake

We moved on to this, doing it doggie style in the first 5-player game I've played (my game). I think everyone got the rules quickly enough not to make many mistakes, but sadly a bad decision early in the game led to a collision which held me back so I came in second last!

Onwards to another of my games, my latest acquisition in fact. It had got a couple of plays in without me while I was beating down the colonial oppressors, but I got a couple in myself, both ending in regicide. ninja

Lovely game, tight, fast & short, everything felt & looked right. A lot of people are talking about little plastic toys to replace the standees, but that would be a disaster - this game needs that abstract feel of standees, although some sculpted chess-like pieces would fit.

I think it got another play or two in later as well.

We finished with this. I've Watched it Played with Rodney Smith & family, but I didn't get the scoring for science - had I looked it up I may have come in better than middle score of 5.

Good game, maybe not my style, but playable.

The rest of these I didn't play...

Ticket to Ride didn't make an appearance, but the King returned again, with multiple plays, mostly, I think, the Halloween Special.
