A surprisingly involving & tense game, highly adversarial, very tight right to the end. Area control with hand management of very limited resources - only one card of the Action deck being out of play each round, and I think everyone - even me! - had a chance to win at some point or another.

Technically, I don't think we actually finished, but everyone agreed we had reached a conclusion, so we finished with time to play...

OK, it was just the Family Game, but finishing a game of Misery Farm at around 2 hours is still not bad at all! Great game, always good to see one of the Gold Standards of Eurogaming again.

A quick two player game of Santorini before we got going with the main game. Lovely looking and not a bad game either.

Four player outing for this, and it's not a bad game at all. Initially it seemed a little confusing (my explanation of the rules may not have helped!) but once we got going it was a very smooth worker placement game, with some nice depth. I trailed in last, with George, Martin and Iain being far more Champion material, even if very few trolls were put to the sword!

Our miniatures enthusiasts are working their way through this at the moment, although Napoleonics might be making a reappearance in the near future.

Martin brought this epic piece of game out and boy does it live up to the hype. George & Martin having played before used a "handicap" system to try to give Barry & I a chance, not sure it mattered much! I enjoyed the challenge of managing my resources, planning ahead, controlling areas on the red planet itself & not spinning my wheels in red dust!
I had to rush away just as the last round ended, so not sure of the final scores. can one of the others add them here?

I saw this, I'm sure someone was playing it. Wrongly, if I understood what was being discussed...
