Odd day in many little ways.

Forgot breakfast until it was too late, so stuffed myself full of biscuits at the club.

More roadworks to negotiate in Motherwell. I hate that level crossing.

Short of bodies again. Still kept 2 or 3 tables going, but we are very short handed these days.

Must have been a warm day - there was warm rain when I left the club!

Good game, but a lot to take in at the start. Fun though.

Truncated game while the next game was set up. Very nice though. At first I thought some additional move options would be good, but in retrospect it's the very limited repertoire that makes some degree of planning possible.

Meh.

We had a laugh playing, and I don't actually hate this, but it was deeply unimpressive. Just another set collection game.

Another little abstract to finish, reminded me a lot of Mijnlieff. Good little filler.

A wee game of this to start our group off. Definitely seems to be less popular these days (possibly due to being superseded by newer, fresher games), but one I'm still really fond of.

Sure it may not have the most interesting drafting mechanics but few games scale this well for all player counts and accommodate 6 or 7 players without dragging on.

Martin kindly introduced this classic to me and my brother. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and can easily see what all the hype was about.

Solid mechanics and ample opportunities for player interaction, which can often be lacking in many euros. Absolutely no luck or random chance except from the tile draw which can be mitigated to an extent. Also love the action cards and was interesting to see how this heavily influenced Twilight Imperium which borrowed this exactly mechanic for the 3rd edition.

Would gladly play this one again.
