Something called the Western Derby was on, but attendance was pretty good!
I had a mix of very old and very new favourites to play, and Splendor got a look in as well. There was a very diverse mix of games - what did you play, and how did it go for you?

rdmasters, lordgarth, Robin and I sat down to play the older version of this. I'm very fond of this classic Avalon Hill game.
Robin unfortunately had to leave but as most of his tribes had bitten the dust, we could robot play him. It was pretty clear which way the wind was blowing but whether or not it was going to be me or lordgarth.

It is a long game but very satisfying.
Robin is keen to purchase a copy for his school club but it is so long - something like Small World is a better fit for kids I reckon.

Watched a game as I drew, joined in another after I recovered from my close victory of Britannia.

Jonas won rousingly each time. He'd not played it before but apparently is making up for it.

rdmasters had bought this recently but hadn't played. Soon we had six people and a restless spirit.

We were highly fortunate that we also had a lovely and vivacious kind lady who was happy to guide us through the structure of the game.

Thank you to her, I have, unfortunately forgotten her name been reliably informed that her name is Zoe! She was truly helpful and thoroughly enhanced our first impressions of the game.

Thanks Zoe!

Taught this to Shaun, Caz, Blake, Jonas, Marshall and another guy (he was farthest from me so I couldn't see his name badge as often).

Left them to it about halfway through the second age.

Shaun came from behind to secure the win.

Zoe and I started off with a high-scoring game of this two-player reimagining of 7 wonders. Manages to capture a similar feel to the original while changing some mechanisms in cool ways. It definitely adds depth to the two player 7 wonders experience (which for the record I enjoyed, though there are a few haters out there).

Followed up 7WD with 2 games of Star Realms, with the 4 Crisis add-on packs. Fast, fun deckbuilding.

First try of this game (purchased from Ian earlier this year on the WABA sale list). I taught Zoe, Manny and Simon, who played the party of adventurers delving into the catacombs. Their disc-flicking prowess narrowly triumphed over the catacomb lord.

This game is super fun, and if someone already knows the rules, super accessible as well. The rulebook is a bit of a monster, with lots of text to read, but the game is actually quite easy to explain and once you get going everything just makes sense. The game also seems to make for a genuinely good dungeon crawl experience!

Next Godlief joined the four of us for some actual 7 Wonders, vanilla old-school (well, 2010) style. Classic game.

Simon, Zoe and I also played 2 games of Sushi Go at some point while Manny went on a mission to get dinner (probably sushi). It seems he was less than impressed with our suggestion of games about food as a substitue for actual food.

Simon, Godlief, Manny and I played this while Zoe taught Mysterium. I always enjoy this game, it captures the essence of a bluffing game so simply and perfectly.

Jasmine, Ethan, myself and ? <ed. Kent - thanks W> played a quick round of this. Ethan won on the back of a mountain of crystal credits from his almost uninterrupted building frenzy. Thanks for the lessons ? <ed. Kent>.

ps. I'm shocking with names.

Godlief dragged in his big box of Dominion and took us through a round of Dominion.

The table was a selection of witches, militias, thieves and other woe, playing well into Ethan's favoured manner of game play. Godlief showed us the pluses of moats in no time and was also soon pulling in the big credits.

As per usual my attempt at building an amazing point winning engine failed within minutes, and a heavy investment in thievery paid little or no return. We were assuming Godlief was leading the way when we were all flabbergasted by an almighty trouncing by Jasmine when the points were finally tallied. Next time we'll keep an eye on the quiet achievers.

Played this with Chris, Davis, Vivian and Keith. This was only my second time playing and still learning how all the game's systems interact, and I was playing as the Dragonlords (randomly assigned) who play quite differently to the other races (they terraform by burning power, rather than digging) which was quite challenging. Needless to say I lost, but it was an enjoyable game and I think it ended up quite close between Keith and Davis who were the Mermaids and Nomads respectively, I think Keith might have edged it but I can't quite remember.
