After a couple of rotten weeks at work, I was in a surprisingly good mood today, possibly slightly deranged... So a couple of good games in good company made the day a particularly good event. Hope the others felt the same!

And straight in to a heavy, lengthy Euro game! Definitely a learning game that picked up speed as we played. Good solid game with logical, clear actions. Just a lot of them to choose from...

I came last, I think...

I then forced everyone into playing this one. I do love this game, hopefully I wasn't too pushy I got off to an atrocious start, with no green or yellow attractions on the table, guess what dominated the available cards?

However, I didn't win, but I didn't come last!

Sadly, I do now realise i forgot one penalty, subtracting points for each unfilled attraction space. But it wouldn't have mattered much.

Very quick game to kill 10 mins while we were waiting on other group finishing a game off. goo

This is one of my favourite's of this genre as I think you can make a few more choices compared to say Zombie Dice

First time I have played this one; reminded me of a game that seemed very similar but keep forgetting its name blush

Was very quick moving once got over initial explanation of rules etc. And someone said we would be at it the rest of the afternoon shake

Enjoyed it and would love to try it again perhaps with the expansion?

Last game of day for me; very simple mechanics, pick a tile, swap a tile or call an auction.

Safe to say as I never played it before I was just having fun seeing how things were panning out.

Barely finished before doors shut for day, that obviously affected my results whistle

I was clearly channelling Wulf and managed to lose every game I played today.

As I've said before, there isn't much to this, but what game there is, is a lot of fun.

I played this twice today and I think it got a load of extra plays too. I was out first and second respectively in my plays.

For a game I don't own I've played this a huge number of times.

Got thumped at this, George and Doug managed to hoover 60 points each after getting to finish a huge medieval metropolis.

Grateful to Doug for teaching me this, I'd had it for ages and been soundly beaten by another barely comprehensible Fantasy Flight rulebook.

I thought I'd built a commanding lead only to find out, in the worst possible way, about end of game scoring bonuses.

Lost by one point, now looking for a re-match.
