2019 is the Isleworth Boardgamers 10 Year Anniversary and we've been running themed evenings throughout the year for each year that we've been running.

Last night was the celebration of 2017, already many of these games have slipped into the forgotten realm so it was nice to dust some of them off and get them back on the table.

Ah 2017, the year of the beautiful songbirds. Although we were playing the original Japanese Birdie Fight version that came out in 2016. It still counts!

We broke with the rules slightly and followed up with a slightly bigger box on offer from Oink Games from 2019.

Did Oink deliver again?

Back to 2017 and next up were a couple of quick fire games of Crossfire. Who was the VIP? Who was the Decoy? Imagine Masquerade crossed with Good Cop Bad Cop.

The far table played a game of this, trying to salvage any reputation they had having been bested by a 6 year old when they last played at Handycon.

There were two big games on the go and the first up was 878 Vikings. Could Paul 2 and David compete with James B's dice luck?

Another offering from Oink Games towards the end of the evening and this is one of their best and it was from 2017 to boot!

Players have a short nap and then hilarity ensues.

The new version of Bruno Faidutti’s “classic” (or just old) game was played.

Board Game: 6 nimmt!
A classic game from ages past found it's way into the 2017 Night.

Whenever a game of this is played, there is always that one person who takes all the penalties. Take a guess who: the name starts with Tom and ends with Tom.
