Theme was La belle France, French Board Games

Not sure how many games were to theme, but at least we had Caylus being played. I guess I should have bought in Troyes.

Paul and I shunned everyone to play this in the corner. No on second thoughts everyone shunned us. A great train game that nobody seems to be interested in.

We played a not very competitive two player game, but saw enough of the game to realise it would be a great game with 4.

Applications now being accepted.

For some reason I always seem to think Paul must have played every game ever made (Well close anyway) so I was very surprised that he had never player this.

He has now.

At last we had some company as Martin Joined us for a game of this. He then set about wiping the floor with us. It did not help that I did the bonehead play of the night by starting the first had off with a 2. Well I had not played it in a long time.

Thanks to Mike for the chance to give Caylus a go. The mechanics were a lot simpler than I thought they'd be (though we did actually play a couple of rules wrongly), but I'm still a bit hazy on what makes a good strategy. Definitely fancy another round some time though.

I could hear this being played over the partition

Sounded like the usual suspects.
