The evening got wild and woolly! The FFF novelty event went off well, and there was a lot of people attending.

We put this out in the hopes of finishing before the FFF event, but we were two stumps not out by the time Ernest called us to start. Rob had at least one more game that I know of.

It sure is fun with 6!

After the FFF event I was kindly invited into a game of this, which, due to my excellent experience of losing at Roborally, I won.

Thanks for the game, I had great fun!

Joined a game of this while Leece did a ferry run. Great fun, and fits well in the Pictomania and Fake Artist Goes to New York sort of genre.

I'd play it again!

After the FFF tournament, Damon and I battled it out as the Daqan Lords versus the undead. My dice turned against me and Good triumphed emphatically over Evil. It was fun getting my fully painted set out for a spin.

Ernest, Kent and I ran a 15 player, three board island of this game. We last dusted it off in 2012 so it was overdue for a day out.

The winner was Alistair Stronach (on his first visit to WABA) who took home a copy of Guildhall Fantasy: Alliance for his trouble.

Ernest, Kent and I were joined by Leah for a game of this.

I raced to an early lead, grabbing my first two regions, needing only to secure the region in between them to win the game.

Whilst three of us jostled for control throughout the game, Leah remained without a win for most of the game before winning two regions in a row and then lining up her third to attempt to steal the game from under us.

A dozen regions later I finally conquered my fifth region to win the game!

After Battlelore, Damon taught Nick, David and myself Inis. Definitely the highlight of the day, just an amazing game. Nick won in a thriller after all of us had chances to triumph. I will be buying this. My new favourite area conflict game.

Ernest, Kent, Leah and I stepped back in time from Renaissance Italy to the Bronze Age to tackle this.

Having earlier been forced to develop religion due to my overabundance of goods, I later rolled a Revolt....which affected others instead of me wiping out their goods supplies and gifting me ten goods.

I developed Empire to give me eight bonus points at the end of he game, which was pretty much my margin over the other three who scored very closely to each other.

After Inis, we took on Roll Player where you have to create fantasy characters. I had a maniac pickpocketing roguish female Orc, who developed traits of foolishness and stupidity while carrying a Blessed Mace - who would have thought. Fun game if you get into the spirit. Looking forward to the expansion where you get to fight monsters with your creations.

We finished the night with Via Nebula, which was a new game to everyone but me. This train game in disguise has you clearing fog with meadows allowing a path from 5 types of resources (grain, wood, stone, brick and piggies) to construction sites where various building are erected for VPs and bonuses. The new players struggled with the board layout but eventually got their engines running. Fun game to finish.

Ernest and I broke this one out for some TtR variety.

I got lucky with my initial ticket distribution, getting a ticket that required me to traverse Switzerland from France to Austria plus a ticket that required me to traverse Switzerland from Austria to France.

I also had a ticket requiring me to go from Chur in Switzerland to France. In TtR Chur is located only one or two stops from the Austrian border.

Three tickets for the cost of one route!

Leah returned from dinner and we borrowed this two player trick taking game from Christina.

Played over a number of rounds until one player reaches 21 points it seemed we were evenly matched until Tim returned from dinner to request his blanketed table back when we are done.

Leah decided we could be done quicker than I had considered and outfoxed me to pick up a bundle of points and quickly end the game.

Finished the day with a Jason, Leah, Warren team of this against an Ernest, Richard, Tim team.

Lots of laugh and good fun with this one.

Imagine playing Codenames with both spymasters having the SAME word for their team to guess and, after giving a clue, the opposing team gets to have a guess!

We won the first game 5-0 and it was so good we played a second game which took us right to the end of the night (and a little bit beyond).

18. Board Game: Scythe [Average Rating:8.28 Overall Rank:7]

Including the Scythe: Invaders from Afar expansion to bump it to 7 players.

Epic 3hr battle for glory between - and I hope I got the names right:

- Carlos
- Jesse
- Charles
- James
- Adrian
- Josh, and
- I

Got a bit of everything: a couple of experience players, a couple of 2nd timers and a couple of 1st timers.

I kept hearing that Scythe was not about combat and mostly just engine-building... but, turns out, when you have 7 players on the map it's hard to avoid to step onto someone's toes The combat section was the one with tonnes of stars on


Adrian eventually triggered the end of the game by building his final building and getting his 6th achievement.

I emerged victorious with 48 points, 7 points ahead of Adrian in 3nd.

Great game. Would play 7 player Scythe again

After the 3hr Scythe session we decided on something lighter and got through a fair few of locations in Spyfall, even adding another player (8 in total).

Jesse was quite lucky and ended up being the spy 3 times in a row and was even able to find out where the rest of us were quite quickly.

Just after dinner time and some people dropping out of the previous group, we picked up Formula D to learn and play the beginner variant of it.

Started with 3 players (Adrian, Josh and I) and ended up with 5 (+Kevin, +music teacher who's name I forgot).

Most of us were learning but it still went smoothly and was good fun.

Substitute for the actual game we played as it's not on BGG:

Off'n'Racing (TM) https://www.offnracing.com

Kevin brought his own game in to play and Adrian, Josh and I jumped in on it to give it a try (funnily enough... we all happen to work for the TAB, so quite thematic).

The game is played over 3 rounds/races, where each player jots down a certain outcome of the race onto a racebook page, based on their hand. Then the race starts and players play cards that impact the positions of the horses throughout the race. Helping some horses to go faster and hindering others. Scoring is based on how close the predicted outcome is to the actual outcome.

Deceiving but good & fun game.

Our last 4 player game of the day... unfortunately, we didn't get through it all. We triggered end-game scoring early and Josh was 1 ahead of Adrian, Kevin and myself trailing behind...

Still a great game I am always keen & happy to play
