A very healthy trunout of 16 IBG'ers tonight, including newcomer Tony coming back for more after last week, and a welcome return to Ben & Naomi...

Several long sessions were played, with another 3 outings for Adventure Island and a game of Orleans that seemed to go on all evening...

And one IBG'er eschewed the burgers on offer on the London Apprentice menu, instead prefering to gorge himself on a whale carcass... gulp

A quick 4-player filler to start the evening...

A Martin Wallace classic - set in beautiful 19th century Cornwall. Well - it became beautiful after they closed all the tin mines...

Smoking hot, and making another appearance despite Dan's less than positive reviews...(he wasn't there anyway, so who cares... ;-) )

Soren, Chris and Jon were keen to finally defeat those pesky pirates and roped in Ben & Philip for some moral (and physical) support.

Turns out that we didn't need David's incompetence this week, as someone else decided to take up where he left off, and eat an entire whale by themselves (burp)...

No evening would be complete without some idiot grabbing all the treasure and then gulping all the oxygen...

The prisoner's dilemma game where we played Pirates divvying up the loot.

Phil's Pirate name was Phil the Fister modest

Chris, Ricky and I played Seasons after Res Arcana.

At this point, my food poisoning was kicking in. All I remember through the memory fug is Ricky absolutely destroying us. We should have conceded when he gave us the chance...

The more I play it, the more I'm not sure about this one.
