Penguin Party was popular at the club in 2010 and what better time to bring it out from the back of the cupboard for another outing.

Ricky, David, Soren, Paul and Dimitrios all took part. It is still a lot of fun with five or six players as you work with other players to block off colours you don't have.

So this wasn't quite in keeping with the 2010 theme but it only took Soren and I 10 minutes at the start of the evening and then a 15 minute 4 player game at the end of the evening.

Ticket to Ride in 10 minutes, does it work?

The big hit from 2010. This is one of those games that has remained popular and stayed around year after year.

Another classic from 2010.

David, Ricky and John took part with Phil joining us at the last moment. This was new to both Ricky and John whilst it's a firm favourite to both Phil and I.

Another game from 2010, Curling with some special powers. Soren, Paul and Dan all took part.

Is it as good as Tabletop Curling?

What better way to celebrate old gaming than to relive a childhood classic.

This was one of those games I always wanted as a child, does the new edition hold up to modern standards?

Another slightly newer game managed to find some room and sneak through.

James, Paul, Phil and Dimitrios all took part.

They also played with the Cacao expansion Chocolatl.

Does it improve the game or just add more clutter?

Another newer game, by now the 2010 theme had almost all but left the room.

Paul, Dan and Soren took part in this one.

Dan, Soren, Phil, Dimitrios and Ricky played Hallapagos, a semi-cooperative game about surviving and escaping (or not) from a desert island.
The game started off with people helpfully sharing their food and water rations and slowly spiraled downwards towards, "Does anybody have a gun?" and cannibal barbecue.
