Warren kindly taught Elaine, Simon, Benjamin and I to play Concordia. I pulled off a rare victory, having invested heavily in scoring from colonists.

The same group went on to play two games of Flamme Rouge - it was a lot of fun.

Christophe, Tim K, Shay and myself played this early prototype of Vital Lacerda's next game. I'm in the early stages of making the artwork, so these playtests are SUPER helpful, even though the rules were incomplete and we did a decent amount of stuff wrong. Thanks to everyone who indulged me!

The same group then played this bag builder from the same designer as Orleans. This game's really popular, so I may be the only person who's pretty luke warm on it, but the whole bag building thing doesn't do much for me. This was my second play, and WAY more enjoyable than my first, but it's still not a game I'd seek out. Everyone else seemed to like it a lot though, so don't take my word for it, especially if you're a fan of Orleans.

Next up Christophe, Shay and myself played another prototype I'm working on. This is from the same designer as Troyes, and reimplements some of the mechanisms found in that game, although it plays and feels very differently. This was my second play, since we messed up some rules in the first, and it played really smoothly. Keep an eye out for this one when it's released (if I don't mess up the art, that is ).

I taught Christophe and Shay this great optimisation game from Pearl Games. the mechanisms here are really unique, and it feels a bit opaque at first. Once you get rolling, though, each turn is a really nice puzzle. The game is also very quick to play.

Last up I taught Shay and Christophe this great lightish euro about digging coal. It's light rules-wise, but by no means an easy game to do well in. Money and actions are very tight, and you can't afford to mess around. I really enjoy it, and I think Christophe liked it, although Shay seemed to be so-so.

I brought my new copy of Quantum along and taught the game to Nick, Cameron and another guy.

We made some interesting plays and Nick got a sneaky victory.

The same group played The Castles of Burgundy afterwards. Nick explained the rules.

Very long game with interesting mechanics but no catch up mechanic when you fall behind.

Having a fortuitous timing of a number of factors, I was able to drop by for some admin and managed to get 2 games of this played with Jason, Warren , and Keith. I'm very confident that I didn't win either of the races.

Same group again with LOW.(Different turn order used, interesting rather than straight clockwise after start player, the player taking start plyr moves to the top then everyone else shifts down 1).

As soon as we heard someone mention they haven't played it, well we had to break it out.

After dinner, a larger group tried this. Not my cup of tea this game but some of the others may argue with me (yeah it's debatable whistle)

Mostly the same group stayed and ground out a long victory for the good vs evil. It was getting late and the bad guy just couldn't do much to end it, we struggled to win (almost a stalemate, fatigue setting in but we got there just).

Jason taught us this neat racing/betting game.

Keith got across the line for a win. My best lesson - don't pay too much for your cars at the start of the race, it can cost you the game no matter how well you play!
