This week saw the club AGM. We did not discuss economic sanctions against Russia, nor sending aid to the Central African republic. I'm sure they were on the agenda, but I guess we ran out of time...

Never mind, business being over, we settled down to some gaming. The by now normal crowd of 30+ players got through a huge number of games, including some surprises!

Find us at the Lanarkshire Gamers Guild or the Lanarkshire Gamers Facebook group

having bought a second-hand copy of this myself lately, but not yet played it, I was very pleased to get a chance to play this today. And it proved a lot more thoughtful and tricky than I had imagined from the rules... I got the scoring rounds wrong for a start, but we played on regardless.

I lost, naturally.

I had avoided this as looking a bit excessive in options, but I do like Worker Placement games, and so joined in. Glad I did too, it was far simpler & quicker than I thought.

I still came last.

A quick game of this one to finish. Nice little filler game.

And, yes, I came last.

I quit after that (well, it was time up...)

Managed to get this half hour set collection game to the table. Beautiful card imagery from the Royal Horticultural Society added a nice bit of flavour too... Thankfully, I managed to redeem myself with a win this time! ^_^

Played a nice 3-p game of this. First scenario. With Barry's fabulous meeples! (Replacing wooden discs) we all agreed they added much to the game. Must get me some of that fimo clay.. We were a little lucky with the events, but I think our strategy was good too.. Maybe the meeples brought us luck.. Maybe the player count helped too? Or maybe it was finally our time to win! Woo! Scenario 2, here we come! Meatiness rating: pork chop.

This, or something very like it was out on a table, can't say I know much about it.

Alex and his group of happy space cadet adventurers were busy creating their characters for a, soon to begin, campaign. Guaranteed to provide weeks of shouting and peculiar accents from the back of the hall.

I didn't see this one played, wonder how it went - it wasn't very quiet in the hall to listen for bodies dropping...
