Tonight we engaged in such diverse activities as building up ancient civilizations, constructing train networks in Japan, forming powerful spy organisations in Portugal, stuffing anthills with pieces of fruit, and...er...putting coloured cards in a row on the table...

We also welcomed first-timer Gaby (Ricky's better half) who apparently has a strange addiction to collecting discarded items in public toilets... wow gulp

New to Chris (apparently he hadn't played a deck-builder before) and played on the very tight Tokyo map...

Shameful supports and devious placements by David in this 'piece of art meets board game'...

A 6-player tile-laying game that plays in a little over 30 mins. Any good...?

Would you believe it if I reported that not a single person failed to make it back to the sub for the whole game. That's not to say that there weren't a few anxious moments for some...
