Played 4 games, one at each level of difficulty. Each game only takes about 20 mins.
Ossian, Jonathan, Dave and myself were not amazing detectives !

This is a very unique game but does need exactly 4 players

Superb Euro (and I am not a huge Euro fan).
Ossian won.
Dave, Jonathan and myself built far nicer civilisations, honest !

A little box that contains a lot of game.
Not an easy game to teach but everyone seemed to cope.
I won this one but it was very, very close. (Only Ossian was probably out of range of a win until his very last turn of the game when he made a lot of progress)

Matt, Ossian, Dave and Jonathan didn't have a impulse at the end

We ran out of time for the last turn but Jonathan was winning. Dave, Ossian, Matt and myself were barking mad.
Simple rules but a fun game.

Played Bruges with the expansion for the first time. It really balances out the canal building side of it.

Played with Nathan, Sophie, Sarah and Mark. Nathan would have pipped me had the purple threat not completed on his last turn

Definitely my favourite worker placement game. Played with Nathan, Sophie and Mark.

Definitely helps if you've played before as Mark and I finished pretty far ahead.

Played with Mark, Mark, John and Tim. It was a first game for all of us and I think the first time I've played with a rondel, though I'm not sure on that one.

A nice game which we all enjoyed. Mark and I tied but I won by keeping hold of the Navigator card (I'd like to think I planned it, but I forgot I had it to be honest!)

One of Dean's games. It is another good game by DXV. A Race game with a nice simple mechanic and a theme of Time Travel/Alternate Possibilities.

Mark H and Ben Croft where the other players.

An old Hans Im Gluk game that Dean owns.

Looks bland, has a pointless board but plays really well. It is also getting a 2nd edition as well.

Again, Mark and Ben made up the other 2 players.

The deck builder with a board aspect as your laying track to score points.

It was played on the Germany Map with the Rising Sun expansion.

Players were Rob, Dean and Mark

Four player with Steve, Andrea, and Kevin.

Played with the Torchlight variant where at the end of each players turn they place the adjacent tiles for rooms which are unblocked and have line of sight. It makes for a far more survivable game yet still can be absolutely lethal, plus really makes the dungeon grow.

We also allowed respawns for dying players - which haoppened a few times.

Kevin won with a lovely haul and was still breathing.

Same players as Dungeonquest.

Played the Base game with The Harbour cards all mixed in together and using the variant where you only put out a continually variable 9 piles of cards to buy from.

this made Machi far more interesting as the limited card pool made each player's town feel and react differently, making it far less deterministic.

Of course its still wildly random - I could generate 54 coins if I rolled a 10, 11, and 12. Didn't.

Steve won with a blistering comeback turn. Nicely played.

Once again poor downtrodden Dracula suffered persecution and harassment from the privileged ruling class. Typical that a bunch of public school elitists hounded a poor immigrant fresh from eastern Europe only trying to carve a quiet corner of the world to live peacefully.

Its a good job then that he managed to win by ripping the throats out of two of the Hunters, securing the win and heralding a new era of darkness and fear - all in Alicante!

Played with the Dugeonquest crew plus Chris, with me as Dracula.

I survived two days but had to pull all my tricks to keep mobile. The Hunters did really well at cornering me but in one turn, with all exists from the Iberian Peninsula blocked off I readied for attack. Dr Sweard tried first, but he was already Bitten so another bite from my New Vampire sent him off to the Hospital.

Then poor tragic Mina tried. Oh the folly of sending such as Mina against Dracula when Van Helsing and Godalming stood watching AND AT NIGHT. Again bitten by my New Vampire. Four points from two kills in one turn securing the win.

Bwa-ha-ha-ha!

Started my day with Mark (Watford Red), Mark (MarkL123), sat next to a lovely chap with a beard and a European accent (sorry, I didn't catch your name but it was a pleasure meeting you) and Mr Pelton.

I'd never played 'Roman Bingo' before - was a fun game but it is still just bingo

Played with Richard, Andrew and Owen.

I love this game and don't play it anywhere near enough. It was my first time playing with the Abbot which was a nice edition.

I won.
