First up myself, Misha Eric and Tim played this Vital Lacerda game from last year. This is my favourite of his games, and I'm usually pretty good at it, but this time I was completely out of sync. Always short of money, goods and influence. Misha and Tim did a great job, however, although I can't remember which of them won..?

Next up the same group was joined by Nick for this new implementation of Terra Mystica. Again, I did terribly in this, with Nick kicking all of our asses quite convincingly.

The general feeling around the table, and the overall feeling in general it seems, is that this is a significant improvement over Terra Mystica. I myself didn't really see that, although I've since realised that we played some rules wrong, and some of these were in areas that I had issues with, so I do need to try this again.

For those who played, here's the main stuff we did incorrectly:

• Gaia Planets always have a terraforming cost of one space shovel, wether they're already Gaia Planets or Transdim planets that have been Gaiaformed. You also need to spend a wonky cube to build on them, as well as the regular cost of the mine.

• When you use a Gaiaformer to turn a Transdim planet into a Gaia planet (which happens on the following turn), you no longer have to pay the wonky cube (hence the Gaiaformer in brackets next to the wonky cube icon that confused us so much). You still must spent the terraforming cost of one (in ore) and the cost of the mine, as normal.

• When you are progressing to the top space of a tech track, you flip over a federation tile and move to the top space (which can only be occupied by one player). You ALSO claim the bonus tech tile, which covers one of your other ones.

Last up we planet this weird little puzzle game. I really like this, but the feeling around the table was mixed. From Tim, who hated it, to Nick who seemed ambivalent, and Misha who seemed to like it. I will say that playing with more players doesn't add anything besides length to the game, so I'd recommend this with two or three.

First play of the game after I received it through a Kickstarter!

Players were: Lea, Nick , Misha and me

Quite straight forward to learn but it takes a little bit of time to get used to all the ability triggers of Fable and Friend cards. There are many possible moments in the phases where they can trigger and everyone kinda needs to be on top of that themselves.

Initially I thought Lea would take the win, but Nick was doing well and built the 3 required houses the fastest.

Good light game I'd definitely play again.

Ernest taught this one, Jasmine, Jason, Peter, and myself joined in.

I was sure all along that Ernest was a toaster, even after Jason checked and confirmed that Ernest was human in the first half, come the second half he still screamed toaster to me.

Unfortunately for Ernest the toasters, the voyage was quite a breeze, so that by the time they could reveal themselves, the ship had almost made its destiny, and no amount of Cylon basestars or raiders could stop us.

All in all, a great game, and thanks for teaching us Toaster Ernest.

Postscript. Ernest wasn't a toaster. (Jasmine and Peter were)

Warren showed Kent, Lea and myself how Orléans can be played coop. However, he didn't mention that it was super hard to do so Funnily enough, we did better during the first attempt than the second. We seemed to have conflicting personal goals that didn't go well with the overall goals.

Was good fun, but personally, I'm unsure if I'd go for that again in the future.

Winner: Not Orléans (the city), as it was overrun by rats, the plague, endured an earthquake and lost all it's people as they couldn't be saved by us in time.

This was a game we've been wanting to get to the table for a while.
Elements of Black Ships and Pirates' Cove make this an enjoyable play.

First time playing cardboard!

James, Rob and, and, a nice chap who taught us whose name escapes me...

I won the first game, James who'd had a bad run in his first, won the second game. We all had a great time and now have a much more thorough understanding of the game.

I incited a couple of people to play this, they said they enjoyed it and are interested in how a more than two player game would go.

Misha was kind enough to bring in, teach, explain and play his copy of Rising Sun for a 5 player set up. Nick, Renato, Godlief and I took advantage of that opportunity and fought hard over the different territories. We formed alliances to later break them and betray each other, hired mercenaries and summoned Onis to help us out crushing our enemies.

Great game that was surprisingly straight forward to learn despite the amount of tidbits that came along with it.

Nick won the game when he overtook us all in the last few turns. Turns out he had a great day winning lots of games that day and this was the first

Thanks Misha for bringing this in, teaching it to us all and letting us play your game I'd be up for it again for sure, this time trying not to spread myself too thin early on to then seppuku all my warriors :|

A couple of tables indulged my desire to try a two lap race.

I got some excellent feedback and I'll add this in and have another go at Thornlie.

There is scope to do quite a bit with the base game...trials, tournaments, grand tour...

Keith took some brave investigators through this game, teaching and playing with this expansion. Turn 1 had 5(?) players, two more joining for turn 2, I alas only able to make it for one turn before going to an organised game (thanks for having me, Keith and others ), and while I don't know what the result was, people seemed to be enjoying themselves when I left.

Jason took Eric, Nick 1, Nick 2, Mark, and I through this interesting trading game. Not only is it real-time trading, but each race/alien group is unique, having different rules that change up how to play them and their interactions with the other players. The game perhaps looks more complicated than the sum of its parts, and I think I was the slowest to click on both how the game overall fitted together and how to best utilise my alien/race's special abilities. I'm not sure I can say that I fully like this game (yet) - colour me very intrigued and appreciative of the experience.

Nick 1 took out the game on 69, over Eric 48, Jason 38, me 26.33, and Nick 2 and Mark each on 17.
