Just when we thought that all the boardgamers in SW London had attended IBG, tonight saw the arrival of 3 more newcomers to the club - Jon, Ben and Neema (apologies for the spelling on that one...) - which meant that there were four 'Jon' or 'John's present this evening... shake

It's brand spanking new, so obviously Tom has a copy. And it's a deduction game that doesn't involve Sherlock Holmes, which I'm sure that Neil would have appreciated (if he'd been there...)

More bus-related shenanigans. Taking extra tickets has never been so risky...
