Wednesday Night Gaming at the Mad Hatter. The pub kindly put up an "area reserved sign" so fewer than usual people wandered in trying to grab a table or find the toilet. Small victories!

Please do add any games I have missed and comment on the entries!

When I walked in there was choas; 5-6 people were searching on the floor for a piece of pandemic and cries of "where is Jee and his torch" could be heard. Thankfully the piece was found and the game continued.


Whether they won or lost I do not know...

John B was running a game of this with Kevin, Alessandro and Ian.

So John, what is your verdict? Also, and more importantly is this the finalised version of Matt's game that Nathan and I play tested at the Games Expo 2013?

Speculation welcome.

After shelving this game for 6 months because I thought I had lost a number of the tiles I eventually got round to checking it to see which tiles I needed to acquire only to find that the copy is complete!

I taught this to Agata and Dave who were keen for a game and we were joined by Andrew who had played before.

In what proved to be a very high scoring game (three players over 210) Andrew edged the victory from me by a slither of 2-3 points.

I am sure that this one is back in rotation!

Nathan was determined to play ths after a period of brining it and other people, not including him, playing it. So determined was he that he ended up playing this twice and nothing else!

The first game was Nathan, Jon Day and Richard and despite looking pathetic (my objective assessment as I wandered past to get a drink) Nathan's castle was apparently victorious.

The second game was Nathan, Csilla, Dominic and Dominic. Despite the inevitable name confusion the game proceeded smoothly. It appeared to be neck and neck between Csilla and one of the Dominic's but end game secret bonuses brought Nathan back into contention. Sadly to no avail. Csilla edged out a victory over Dominic despite having a end game bonus for hallways which gained her exactly one point.

Kudos for Dominic (2nd place) for completing the one of each shaped building end game bonus for 8 points!

John B lied to me.

He said:

1. that the person with the best knowledge about animals would win the game; and

2. I would learn the weight of a rhinoceros if I played.

I won so number 1 was clearly false and I am still none the wiser about rhinoceroses although I can tell you that the Eastern Wallaroo lives in Autralia!

John B was teaching this. Only one of four people playing this left immediately after so not too bad...

When asked what they had played so far somebody new to gaming described this as "a colourful card game." - I guess the immersive chameloen theme had not come through to them.

Using dice as voting markers a large group seemed to be having a lot of fun with this.

Stuart definitely played this with a group.

He looked set to play it again when Annette asked "Shall we play Carcassonne South Seas?" Stuart and the other member on their table agreed and Annette went to get the box.....

..when she brought this back.

Remembering that she had South Seas at home she asked if the table could play this instead and they agreed.

I think this was also played earlier in the night.

At least two plays of this which is definitely becoming a London on Board classic. A game of this was the last game standing.
