It was my birthday over the weekend, so me and some friends decided to have a small get together. There was some games played early on (Pandemic, Thurn and Taxis and Bang!) and later we turned to Guitar Hero to round off the night.

However, the most exciting part was the present that my friends got for me...

Now I'm sure many others out there have had some pretty surprising birthday (or other festive) treats, so why not share your best with everybody?

Yep, my friends bought me Agricola. I expected to be getting a game and thought something along the lines of Dominion Intrigue or Race for the Galaxy would be beneath the wrapping. How surpised I was whenthe first tear in the paper revealed the orange box of Agricola - a game worth around £50 here in the UK!

Many thanks for this guys!

This was another nice surprise, though not strictly a present. I was given the money to buy a game from relatives, and it just happened that my FLGS had one copy of Intrigue left. Yoink!
