This day saw the anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall, Delta Goodrem’s birthday and the day Charles de Gaulle died.

For our purposes, this day was the regular second Saturday of the month WABA meet. Add what games you played and see what else managed to hit the table.

I taught Priya, Jocelyn and Maggie this incredible good dexterity game. We each had pieces fall off the ship and not caught, so our piles in front of us changed during the game. Unfortunately for me, the ship tipped too far on my last turn while going for the win This meant that as we had played all our cards, Jocelyn won by having the least number of pieces in front of her.

This game was notable for playing deliberately placing their pieces dangerously to almost will them to fall down more easily on other people's turns, such as the man hanging off an arm (not that uncommon), the barrel on its side on the base of the ship and the black plank on the skinny side.

When we walked in, we grabbed two other fellows for a game.
This is what I grabbed out of the WABA box.

Everyone breath a sigh of relief. It's four pages of rules!

A great game. Despite covering half the board with my masters before the middle of the game, I lost traction and came third.

Would be happy to replay

I got to bring out my newest purchase - krosmaster.

While this was from kickstarter, I got my copy through a online store.

Renato sat down with myself and another fellow for a 3 player game and went over the rules.

I was really surprised on how easy it was to teach/learn.
Only downside was it was over a bit too quickly.

The game did grab a lot of attention with the bright miniatures and 3D board

My first official visit to a WABA weekend! A big THANK YOU to Warren for getting me there!

Started and ended my day with this little gem. Have only played this on Yucata.de so it was nice to see it on the table and finally understand all the little things automation takes care of.

David, his son(?) and Warren sailed first, David pillaged the win

Closed with a fun game against Peter, Kylie, and Anton. I believe Peter was the Viking of note this game.

Ah this classic bit of thrust and parry! Peter, David and myself sat with a lovely lady who I believe just wandered in for a look and found herself learning this one. Was a mild affair as diplomacy and good manners kept the Assassin quieter than usual, no need to scare off our new friend! She ended up a delightful 2nd to David's colour bonus citadel. I apologise to the lass for forgetting her name, but hopefully she will be sighted again.

Wednesday night Warren, Mitchell and myself gathered for a few games and this was the big one! As they say, "Rails never Fails!" And thus it was. Mitchell out tycooned us both that evening.
Saturday I taught this to Peter and Anton...and I was keen to use the lessons of Wednesday! Service bounties carried the day for me but I was pleased that the others quickly grasped the fun of this excellent game and I'm sure will be better barons for the hit out.


Again I thank you all for a delightful day of fun! You have a club that the rest of us should be envious of! I look forward to being in your fine city again soon enough, and will time it to see you all again

Happy Gaming,

Tommy Dean

10. Board Game: Terra Mystica [Average Rating:8.24 Overall Rank:8]

Christophe introduced me, Dean, Jan and Lihua to this. Christophe has played before with three, so he was wanting to see how it played with five.
The initial answer is "slowly" - it took us a while to work through the moderately complex mechanics. There is a lot going on in this game. Eventually we started to get the swing of it, and the end game was quite close. My small triumph was to build the bridge that Christophe wanted - he was not not impressed. There is a certain amount of "Settlers of Catan" interaction (with five), but the board seems to hold plenty of room for expansion - you shouldn't get blocked in a small area of the board. The other obvious interaction is competing for top spot on one of the value tracks (not sure of their official name). Other interactions are more subtle, such as the aforesaid using the resource someone else wanted.
I thought I was playing a fairly good strategy, and a shoo-in for largest territory, but I wasn't paying attention, and got caught. Bother. So Lihua, followed by me and Christophe.
The whole session took us over three hours, but I am sure would play in about 90 minutes or less with experienced players. Since there are 18 different races available (each with their own particular strengths and weaknesses), there are lots of different strategies to explore. I am hoping Christophe brings this in again, so I can have another game (and I always enjoy messing up his moves), but I am not sure I'd introduce this to the family, who aren't hard core gamers.
Christophe commented that with five, there was a lot more interaction on the board - with three you can basically develop your own territory unhindered by others.
And the final metagame? Christophe packing up - must have kept him engaged (and the rest of us amused) for what seemed like fifteen minutes.

Jan and Lihua provided this one, and Christophe, Dean, Renato and I joined in. Hm. Not sure we were playing properly - just about every hand someone hit the limit, which seemed odd. There was plenty of room for sneaky plays, and everyone instigated (or suffered from) this sneakiness.
After we had done one round, Renato and I bailed, so I don't know if the game continued.
While there was a lot of merriment invoked by the sneaky plays (especially by those who didn't suffer), there seems to be far too much luck. But I did return home and drag out the original board game version of this - must make an attempt to play it one of these days.

We ran a couple of Wings of War games, as is our tradition in November for Remembrance Day, with all the extras. Richard contributed his mats which made it look really impressive.

rdmasters will post some photos presently.
