Here are the games we played on Easter Monday. It's too early to see if we'll stay a coherent group, but I think everyone had a great time and we'll try and meet up again. The numbers fluctuated through the day as you'll see. Most of the group are role players, so despite my best intentions we played fairly light games.

One of my favourite fillers. Takes a minute to teach, 15 minutes to play. David, Damian, Tim and I played the first game and Andrew showed up in time for the second.

Llyn (my wife) arrived with Ian and we all joined in a game of Apples to Apples. One of these days we must develop an Oz version of some of the cards.

"I'm The Boss" - our first controversy. Llyn bowed out of this one, and two players had their investors recruited away from them, leaving them out of the bulk of the deals. I don't think this group will be revisiting it.

Not one of my favourites, but a popular choice for nearly everyone else (except, again, my wife who would only join us for "Apples to Apples") - two boards, three flags, and everyone was pretty much familiar with the rules so it went very smoothly. I was quite happy with my result, third out of a field of six. The winner, however, was way ahead of everyone else. Nice painted pieces too.

This time we played with the packs reversed - choosing green cards to play on a red card. The Unripe variant, I suppose. Not quite as much fun as the normal version.

Andrew had left to have dinner with his folks so there was five of us left. Llyn suggested we play this while she got dinner ready. I left out the River expansion and just taught the plain vanilla version. I managed to win on farmers but it was very close.

One of the first proprietary games I remember being good at. I'm hopeless at it now. We played "Position" which is probably the hardest quadrant to match. Still, it's a very quick game and a good filler.

And finally, one from David's Cheap Ass game collection. I'm not a fan of the Cheap Ass games in general, but Witch Trial wasn't bad, even if it does pretty much come down to betting on die rolls. Llyn objected to the theme, until we pointed out it was about persecuting people regardless of their sex. A good game to play with role players, I'll admit.

The one that got away. I managed to buy a new copy at pretty much half price and was eager to try it out. Probably the wrong crowd for it, and everyone was pretty tired at the end so they opted for Witch Trial instead. I'll hopefully be able to take it out for a spin tomorrow, albeit with three players.
