A balmy summer evening brought out a nice crowd of 18 IBG'ers this evening, to play a whole range of games - from the serious and head-scratching, to the frankly ridiculous, it was all on show tonight...

Ricky brought along his much-better-half again and was obviously trying to impress her, as he started by stealing Jon's dinner to share with her, and then was caught with his sticky little fingers inside Jon's Flamme Rouge - not something that Jon appreciates at the best of times... gulp

Anyway, apart from Ricky's dubious behaviour, here's what went on...

There was a general consensus before the evening that 2016 had been a pretty great year for gaming, so there was going to be no shortage of good stuff to play.

However, that didn't prevent the appearance of a mammoth 2015 game that had never before seen the light of day at IBG, and took up half the room...

In other news, Jon & Soren found a cosy corner and played 2-player games all evening...which was nice.... modest

A warm welcome to Chris II and Keir (sorry if spelled wrong!) this evening for their first outing at IBG. Noel plunged them straight into an evening of Railways of the World, so if we never see them again, we'll know why....

And elsewhere, there was also plenty of brain-crunching going on - including the most beige game ever to grace our tables...

It was a balmy summer's evening, but the magnetic pull of IBG still managed to attract double figures of gamers to its riverside location.

Plenty on offer tonight, including a noble sacrifice from Ben which encouraged an act of group cannibalism to keep everyone alive. IBG does that to you...

2019 is the Isleworth Boardgamers 10 Year Anniversary and we've been running themed evenings throughout the year for each year that we've been running.

Last night was the celebration of 2017, already many of these games have slipped into the forgotten realm so it was nice to dust some of them off and get them back on the table.

Another good turnout this week, including newcomer Ian who was accompanying Roshan. Surprisingly, Roshan had been given a pass-out, despite having a 7-day old baby at home. I suspect that we may not see him quite as often over the next few weeks though...

This evening, James had brought along his massive new Snowdonia Deluxe box, containing all manner of expansion material. Which, of course, meant that he only ended up playing the base game... shake

If it wasn't building towers in 12th century Florence, then it was racing fat Italian plumbers around a narrow race-track. To be fair, that's where the Italian influence begins and ends, unless you include Roshan's sharp dress sense (did you see his shoes?) and Ricky's smouldering good looks...

A chance to revisit recent favourites... while still time for some older classics... We've just about caught up now with normal time.. but I've enjoyed these opportunities to dip into the past... will have to come up with something for the future perhaps on a monthly basis ?

Anyhow - my memory of what was played is virtually non existent...

Tonight we hit the magical 20 IBG'ers at the London Apprentice, playing a whole host of different games, new and old (and unpronounceable).

The thing is - was Tom W there, because I didn't hear a peep out of him all night...??? whistle

Another healthy turnout tonight, meaning that 4 tables were in the go. It was a welcome to newcomer Leon, and a rare appearance from Natasha, who was in very high spirits after having recently quit his job. I'm not sure how long the high spirits lasted for though, as he then sat down to play the latest euro-hotness...

A more petite gathering of a nice round 10 tonight, but there was no reduction in quality, with a fine mix of old and new being played. Which just goes to prove that IBG is neither stuck in the dark ages, nor constantly obsessed with the cult of the new.

Although we bookended the evening with Knizia games, so I'm not sure what that says about us...?

Enough IBG'ers tonight to have 4 tables on the go, and a welcome return to Noel after many weeks without us seeing his grinning Irish face...

James came up against Dan in more than one game this evening, and in more than one game lost to him by one point. Which was a shame... whistle

This was the last session before the Essen groupees depart to make their annual pilgrimage to industrial Germany in search of many soon-to-be-forgotten games to bring back.

As always, a good selection of games on offer this evening. Technically, it was 2019 night, and there were a couple of recent releases in evidence - but plenty from years previous too.

The end of the evening also saw an unusual alliance form between Soren, Vas and TomToo...

With half the club in Germany for Essen it was a quieter week this week but we still had enough for a couple of tables.

Due to a bolier malfunction at the London Apprentice, the upstairs room was a little Arctic-like in terms of temperature. Neil soon regretted coming in shorts and no fleece, and decided to fashion his own emergency clothing...

From gallery of Emsdad


Regardless of the temperature, there was still plenty of gaming going on, with a few 'new and shinies' making their first post-Essen appearances...

Not too many fireworks at the London Apprentice tonight (although a bonfire might have been nice, as the heating still hasn't been fixed...)

We're still in post-Essen season (hence Dan's absence ), so there were a few more new-and-shinies on display this evening. Including a dog-centred, full-evening euro that Soren managed to get lured into.

Although, just to prove that it's not all about new things, there were also 3 offerings from Reiner Knizia that hit the table...and more word-based tomfoolery...

And if that wasn't enough, we even got an impromptu lock-in at the end of the evening...

A whole host of games played this evening - truly a 'something for everyone' occasion.

As well as being David & Tom getting horny, there were several new Essen releases on show, plus the usual fare of old and older, with Mr Knizia making his regular appearance too...

A good turnout this evening, with 4 games on the go at any one time.

This evening we had Soren to thank for one of the more 'novel' offerings to ever grace the green baize in the Riverview Room - although Tom definitely pushed him close with his pipe-cleaner artwork representation of a stinging insect...

The Christmas decorations had been put up in the pub, and there were a few games that had also been brought out of dusty storage to be played at IBG tonight. But don't worry folks, there were still a few 'new & shinies' to keep everyone happy too...

The penultimate IBG session before Christmas saw at least one appropriately festive offering on the table - along with the usual mortorcycle gangs, space-based nonsense and a relaxing spot of fly fishing...

Dan & Jon also had the surreal experience of trying to play The Mind Extreme with a couple of 'normal' people at 11pm, one of whom was off her face and the other wanted to know if we could play Uno instead. Did it end well....???

On the last meeting of the IBG crew before Christmas, there was: building crazy factories, racing through the peloton, gladiatorial challenges, the War of the Roses (in multiple forms), urgent space missions, a film about laying eggs (seriously), and big towers of sweaty men.
