Played right at the beginning of the evening before it started filling up. Alex was gobbling brains left, right and centre.

Alex shook things up and added the Santa dice to the second game. The Hunk and Hottie didn't get a look in.

That awkward moment when the cards are coming out sequentially and you slowly realize that the deck wasn't shuffled the last time it was played.

Various people picked at this like a scab. The game officially ended when I squeezed past the table and knocked it over and proudly shouted "Jenga!"

This seemed to go on forever or were several games played? Some expressions seemed to suggest the former.

Taught and observed but secretly wanted to play this little gem. But it was too early in the evening to settle into a game as was hosting. Was with little Assam in spirit though.

This got played by a big group but me and Sambhav managed to squeeze a two player game onto a little side table. He insisted that we use the official three Vexation tracks per game instead of the unofficial three per scoring round and it wasn't very challenging...

Another game of Ra the dice game and another consensus from my opponents that the original bidding version is better. Sigh.

I don't often throw the word raucous around lightly but this game was raucous. Fortunately I was on another table trying not to roll Ra symbols so was mostly spared the vulgarity.

There seemed to be a big table devoted to this celestial bullying going on for most of the night.

Abstract strategy game skinned with a silly penguin theme which was good fun. Enjoyed it so much I demanded we play it twice. Also saw it getting at least one other airing at another table. Weird how the game can end prematurely because the penguins are all on separate icebergs rather than the hex by hex elimination process.

Others played this but I watched a game of it. Just made me want to play Carcassonne: South Seas. Everybody had their ship meeples upside-down.

Played this but it coincided with the awkward too many people and not enough seats and tables point of the evening so was hopping back and forth and barely managed to scrape two bananas together.

The highlight of the evening for me. Played using a three tile variant where we always had a hand of three tiles. Made the game much more challenging and you could plan further ahead. The Gingerbread Man was very busy.

The game of mischievous gypsies swapping cups and keys. Predictably the twin menaces of Anastasia and Shez were the ringleaders in organizing this hidden role game.

This game's about a youth hostel for the Cthulhu mythos or something.

This got played several times throughout the evening and everybody seemed to be enjoying it. I even broke and played a couple of games myself towards the end and managed to win despite my loathing of reaction and pattern recognition games. Begrudgingly, I admit it was... fun. I had... fun.
