A chunky game of El Grande with Warren, Tauel and Mark.

I didn't expect to win and was not disappointed - seems like Mark actually knows how to play this game. Consequently my chuck-random-cubes-down-and-hope-for-the-best strategy was somehwat inneffective.

Still a classic though...

Played this with Mikey, JM and Katie and Mikey kicked our butts with a fast ending strategy.

Taught this to Mikey/JasonF, Alfred, JM and Katie. I'm always glad to indoctrinate people into what is Martin Wallace's finest work (imho).

Built a nice cathedral with Steve G, Brad and ninja (sorry I didn't catch her name).

Really nice artwork on the board. Lots of competition with 4 players for collecting resources and hiring craftsman. Tricky to manage, I was stuck with too much money, the wrong craftsmen and not enough resources to convert to VPs (and I was the teacher!) The event and privilege cards add the tie-in to the novel.

ninja won. I came last.

I finally won a game of Citadels. The secret is to NOT start strong and never look like you're in a commanding position, then rush to the finish. Maybe. Worked for me.

Played a 4 player game of this oldy but goody...it took centuries. Greg, Coffeeman and Gus joined in..despite staying up until 3-30am the night before watching the Dutch win the soccer, Gus triumphed as the dastardly French. Greg got a dose of the Black Death in the final round.

Fortunately the cafe was open and caffeine readily available.

Floating around eating excrement... what could be more fun. I've been rather wiped out from uni, and looking for something simple but fun to play, this fit the bill. No confusing rules, just follow the phases and react accordingly. I lost undoubtedly, but had fun anyway.
