So after our epic game of BSG along with a few more thematic games, we have a more eclectic mix so far for next time!

Feel free to add any other games you fancy playing from mine, or your own collection (You'll need to register on this site to do that however)
There are a couple of games I've yet to play from my games, so would need some advanced warning in order to teach.

After the epic BSG game, this 'longer' game will feel short in comparison. It's a difficult co-op game of stopping an ancient terror from devouring the earth.

Think Pandemic meets an RPG meets a Fantasy Flight adventure book (choose your own adventure). I have some very nice dice for use with this (Rob will like them!).

This is actually designed by the same guy who made BSG (along with a fair few other FFG titles) but only has a couple of passing similarities (actions in a turn) in common with BSG.

Rob has been spending his spare time tirelessly producing his own version of this game. So, providing there's no setbacks, we will be playing this city building card game.

It's highly rated, but out of print (meaning it costs a LOT on Amazon!). So it'll be a privilege to play

Dan is going to be bringing this crazy (in a good way) game.

It's an area control game where you play unique characters and action to try and claim territories (which are constantly being replaced once claimed).

Everyone has a unique set of cards made by choosing 2 factions to go into your deck. This produces some crazy combinations (Dinosaur-Ninjas or Pirate-Zombies anyone?). I believe Dan also has one of the expansions which basically give you even more choices of factions.

So my bargain find (£15) for this was delivered and it's basically a more tactical (and more thematic) version of King of Tokyo.

Same core mechanic of it's Asian fore-bearer, but now there are buildings in cities to stomp, which attracts military units which means it's not just other monsters you have to worry about. These new additions also mean there is a slim chance of healing in Manhattan (the new 'hill' in this game) by destroying (read eating) the right units, or hospitals!

It will take minutes to learn since we played the other so recently
