I came with my 10yo son and brought a couple of his mates; we started on something easy as we'd all played various versions of Carcassonne before, just not this one. It was good fun we all enjoyed the different take on it.
We only had time for one more game and that was Clank!. It took us a little while to work through it and even towards the end of the game we were working out small rules we'd initially overlooked. We enjoyed the game though and will crack it out next time we get there, if it hasn't been moved to Mt Claremont... we all felt we hadn't quite tapped the amount of fun the game potentially had.
Nick kindly taught Zoe and me Azul, which we quite enjoyed! A game of carefully selecting sets of tiles which then go into a videogame-like rack that feeds your final 5x5 display. Simple to learn, but interesting gameplay. Flows well.
I've heard it compared negatively to Sagrada, but having tried both now I think Azul is the better game, even though Sagrada is a little prettier to my taste. Can see why Azul caught the attention of SdJ.
Thanks Nick for teaching and for being patient with our 1YO who was also interested in the game
