Plenty of new stuff on offer this evening, with the latest hotness based upon our feathered friends garnering some interest.

There was also an in-depth discussion about what type of useful tool you could possibly make out of an old ship's propeller and the branch of a tree. Answers on a postcard...

An early opener, with James seemingly distracted with another piece of Japanese ferry-fodder in front of him...

Roll and write - or more accurately - flip and draw. Hopefully, no-one ever asks James, Neil, Jon, Soren and Chris to be in charge of designing a city's bus routes...

Lots of pretty pictures of birdies in this one. It's very quickly become the game that all the cool boardgaming kids are raving about. But what did our cool kids make of it...?

Billed by Soren as 'Robinson Crusoe the card game', it stranded our 4 hapless IBG'ers on a desert island, and asked them to co-operate to survive. Makes a change from Soren pulling out a gun and shooting everyone, I suppose...

Fields of Green with the expansion. For some reason, James threw his glasses behind the radiator, which was his excuse for doing so badly in this one...

Board Game: Coup
David, Soren, and I played Coup. While James and Neil were playing something else.

Soren keeps cheating winning every single game.

Earlybirds James and Neil gave this a whirl.. send your thieves out to three locations in Paris, load them up with gear and see who comes away with the most blag. Got it? Good.

Plays quickly and smoothly and comes with options to take on the Mafia in Rome or some dodgey Cockneys in London. Knowwarramean? Good.
