John H and I taught Mark and Steve D Blood Bowl Team Manager. John bravely took on the dwarves which I've never seen do well. Steve took the tricksy Skaven, Mark took the cheating Chaos and I had the brave and noble Humans.

Knowing the game gave me enough of an advantage over the two new players and at the final whistle the humans were a slim 7 points ahead with the Skaven and Chaos teams right behind and the dwarves not far behind them.

Biff, Jim, Steve and Paul play Lords of Waterdeep, in which players run a small greengrocers. They need to stock up on the four main goods (cauliflowers, turnips, eggplants and grapes) and fulfil orders to score points! They can also choose to visit player owned market stalls at which they can buy extra produce from the owner!

My shiny new favourite game, Quantum! I managed to win this one from behind by dropping two cubes out of the blue but it was a bit undeserved - I dropped a cube and upped my research to 6 on the final turn, with a dominance of two. I took Aggression as my first card and what should come out to replace it but another Aggression, letting me dominance drop my final cube Bwahahahahahaaaaa *cough*

More Quantum, this time on the weird + shaped map. It gave everyone chance to grab some power cards (or extra ships in my case) before funnelling everyone into a massive fight in the centre.

John H took an early lead and crucially reached the centre first, before dipping down another branch at a leisurely pace while Ash, Kieron and I fought in the middle. He was on his final cube (and we with 3 left...) before we finally called a tentative peace and focused on destroying his army. And even though all three of us spent entire turns stopping his plans he still would have won if his dice rolling had been a little luckier.

Happily everyone was still focused on him and didn't notice me quietly grabbing the command cards I needed to finish. John had another turn where his rolling failed him and he wasn't able to drop his final cube, leaving me clear to combine all my cards and ships - Conformist gave me a fourth action, Nomadic let me jump my 3 ship into orbit around a 9, I moved my 5 ship in the old fashioned way and used Intelligent (I think?) to drop my last cube, much to John's chagrin

Yay, my favourite micro wargame of the moment Ash, Kieron, John H and I played a very quick game in which my early betrayal of John gave me two adjacent cubes and a card advantage during the redraw. Fortunately in the next (final) round, both John and Kieron decided to sit back and let Ash burn himself out stopping me, not realising just how bad Ash's set of cards was.

Cubes for the cube god!

Goodness knows how many of us played this game, John H and I ended with a point each and shared victory while Biff (random play) collected 33 points and just beat Gaz to last place.

I thought Kemet to John H, Warren, Kieron and Kevin and, despite me finishing the game without a single troop on the board, it was a blast.

Kevin led for the final half of the game and I thought I'd just managed to snipe him at the end before discovering to my horror that I had misunderstood how the Nile Delta area of the board worked, losing myself the vital point needed to win. Unfortunately I'd so over-stretched to put myself in that position that I was in no position the turn after

Warren and Kevin both hit the magic 8 point mark but Kevin's greater number of battle successes gave him the tie break. I finished in third and John and Kieron took fourth and fifth respectively.

Dani joined us for some vampire hunting but unfortunately (for her) she was Dracula and after a number of quiet rounds, there was some debate whether Dani or I was the dark one, but the spell to reveal Dani's identity confirmed most people's suspicions and she was staked shortly after.
