And so the first of LoB’s weeknights for 2014 was held this Monday. The theme of the night was Traitors and Treachery. And in the spirit of the theme, no one was told about it. But every game contained a traitor ...

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

1. Board Game: The Resistance: Avalon [Average Rating:7.67 Overall Rank:85]

Nadine accused Gareth of being the spy. Gareth said the spy was Shez. Mike interrupted, saying that the spy was Alex. Russell reasoned that Andrew must be the spy. Pouria replied that was just the sort thing a spy would say. Will agreed but said it must be William. William counter-accused Jee. Jee pointed at Nadine. John and Tom accused each other, and they weren’t even playing.

It turned out the spy was Paul Watson and he wasn’t even there. Which is probably the best strategy to use with The Resistance.

Robin revealed his Machiavellian talents by getting a group of people to play this and then halfway through revealing they were actually playing … DUM DUM DUM … a train game!

He cackled maniacally for a while afterwards, but you get the idea.

Whoever was the traitor in this game, they went to extraordinary lengths. Like by exchanging the map and destinations for ones that were spelt in some not-entirely-English fashion or named for obscure explorers and printed in an ornate and unreadable font.

Soren is Danish. Now, as we know from TV, all Danes are either politicians or serial killers. The fact that he was teaching this game in which you place and move dildos across a map of the world doesn’t help me decide which he is.

Lloyd thinks he’s been clever, playing the long game of being a traitor in every single game for these past three years. But the rest of of us caught on. Three years ago.

Robin followed his masterstroke of sneaking a train game into LoB by convincing everyone to play this … or Snowdonia would be played again.

Possibly the most treacherous, duplicitous, backstabbing-est game played that night. Tom took part in a two-player game of this and they still don’t know who the traitor is.

I asked Russell how this was and he excitedly replied “Shit just got real!”

A second game of this was played.

Remember when 18XX players were the lowest, most contemptible form of gaming life at LoB?

A cunning ploy: getting people to play this and then revealing that they are actually just playing Transamerica but on a different coloured board. And just to twist the knife a bit more: the game is still shit.

Pouria produced this Kickstarter title. Kickstarter is, of course, an inherently treacherous things, being designed to get you part with large sums of money in exchange for piles of miniatures and poorly written rules. Some time in the future. Perhaps.
