From Friday afternoon to Sunday evening, LoB held its second away weekend, in a hotel at the seaside in Eastbourne. 40 gamers, several hundred games and very little sleep made for an absolutely superb weekend. After two nights staying up past 4am, I'm not going to add all 37 (!) games I played right now, but if anyone else feels like it, get going!

Recent Essen purchase I played quite a few times and was happy to see that some decided to pick it up later and go on some hikes together. Nice little card game indeed

Finally found this old game at Essen after looking for it for years and I played it four times during the weekend. Did not win a single one but I am getting there (another 39 plays should do it!). Great semi-filler game if only the board would not look like like Baywatch meets The Prince of Bel-Air.

For a simple card game like this, it takes surprisingly long to wrap your mind around the best strategy. More vicious than most card games due to the ability to force your opponents to play (as in, no passing allowed). Neat game.

3 plays against David. One win - two losses. Still cannot figure out whether it is harder for the dwarves or the dragon (or neither).

Despite shaking like Dean Martin I managed to win this game by setting up poor David's doom, the Sheep of Doom ! Good game.

Odd thing indeed, the first time I ever played this, it was in Eastbourne in April and now I played it again for the second time. I guess I will have to wait until next time to play it again. Won the game ! Yay !

Two back-to-back games of Shadows plus expansion. The first one was good as usual but the second game was awful and decreased the rating by a substantial amount, which is sad. We broke the game buy managing to winning almost all the quest and we actually had to (!) fail quests in order to win the game (as in doing bad in order to win). Never thought this possible . . . strange tidings in Merlin's beard indeed.

Got this for free from the publisher. Much better than I though. Extremely simple but funny filler game with more choices in there than one would imagine when glancing at it.

Unlike many of my fellow LOB-players, I do love my party/word games and was glad we managed to get this to the table, a great game indeed and I want a copy now, thanks Russell for running it. I managed to snatch the victory from Ronan by only a few points !

Had the pleasure of witnessing the carnage of five people holding on to their eggs and racing (and tussling!) around the board. This is a neat game but longer than 5 minutes is too much and you also need a Kay-proof environment.

I managed to convince the gamers of LOB to play this as expected, it fell flat. I guess it is a good game for non-gamers and social evenings (or other social occasions). Not sure whether I will hold on to it, probably not.

Eight player game of this weird party game. More or less and exercise in chaos and miscommunication than a game but that is what makes it fun ! Perfect game for that time of night (about 4am)

Played this twice over the course of the weekend (using the Seafarers expansion once). I managed to win both games with a very small margin, lucky me. It was good fun to win against Grand Moff Nato for once (twice that is, HA!)

Still looking for a copy of Win, Place and Show to do some serious horse-racing gaming but this would do for now. Really liked this game. It is more or less a hidden identity/movement game but the theme makes it really great. Go Busher ! Go Busher !

Simply, chaotic and nasty take-that style card game. The monopoly theme does not really do it for me and I am not sure there is a lot of game in this game, but for a late (late) night filler, this is fine and dandy

I did not grasp the subtleties of this game to be honest. It was probably too late and for a card game, this is quite mindboggling. Need to try again, but this send me off to bed faster than a call from Marilyn Monroe.
