Here's a list of games played in Leighton Buzzard yesterday. I was being anti-social/deeply engrossed in a game of 1830 all day, so may very well have missed some games played/people involved, so please feel free to add corrections.

An average turnout this month, with four or five tables of games going - hopefully there will be some more people for next month's Xmas special.

For a record of previous months see the metalist.

Matt brought his new copy of 1830 along (the Mayfair version), which he picked up in Essen, which kept Matt, Eric and me occupied for the whole day. We started playing at 11, had a brief lunch break and then packed up at about 4.45. At that point all companies were floated and some of them had Diesels, so I don't think it was that much further to play.

I think we all thought it was a good game that we look forward to try again soon while still fresh in memory. Even Eric said he enjoyed it, even though I stripped a company of assets and then dumped the presidency on him, making him liable for acquiring a new train which put a dent in his chances of winning. devil

When we packed up I was in the lead (net worth of ~3700 to second place at about ~2600), but Eric may have been able to catch up as he had some good companies with good runs.

David, Adele and Brian played a game of Dominant Species. It felt like a fairly long game when I played it, but they set up after us and finished well before, so not as long as an 18XX.

What would an LB session be without at least a game of the Nightly Bean. Played by Russall, Adele, Brian and Richard (I think).

Another one of Torsten's acquisitions from The Works. I don't remember seeing it played, but Torsten carried it past us so I suspect they were playing it at some point.

A game that I picked up in TK Max in MK

Nice of you, Johan, to forget the only game that I won on that day...
