THURSDAY 5th JANUARY- eight players turned up to play.

First on the table was Agricola. Mark, Dave, Matthew and Will settled down to play Agricola with Farmers on the Moor and the Goodies expansion for the first time.

Farmers made the game tighter and we all struggled at first with the new rules. Each of us found a card or card combo that worked well. Matthew had a card that let him play out ALL of his occupations and minor improvements. Dave managed to genereate extra fuel fairly easily, Mark had a card that enabled him to convert animals into food and the same animals, when building fences, and Will gained vegetables from the day labourer space.

The game ended very tight with the winning score or 46 shared by Mark & Will, and Dave bringing up he rear with 39 points. Very close.

THURSDAY 12th JANUARY 2011 - Wargaming Night - 6 people turned up to play.

Don and Will sat down to play this Martin Wallace 2 player card building wargame of the War between France and Britain along the Canadian border.

A strange game ensued where both players tried unusual strategies "just to see what would happen".

Don won a resounding victory.

The other players, Danni, Mark, Dave and Matthew settled down to an hours worth of Summoner Wars.

2.5 hours later they were still enjoying this game.

I don't know how the game went - perhaps someone will add the details for me?

The late night players broke out Ticket To Ride Switzerland.

Don, Will and Danni played this game - a first for time for both Don and Danni.

Due to some excellent tunnelling luck Will managed a win, whilst bad tunnelling luck and a run of poor train games left Danni as last player.

THURSDAY 19th JANUARY - nine players turned up for 3 three player games.

First on the table was Mage Knight with Steve,Paul and Danni playing this one.

I understand that Danni took on more than she bargained for in her first encounter and so was set back a little early on in the game .

They were still playing only the second day or the first quarter of the beginners game when the rest of us left.

Second game to hit the table was an old favourite Canal Mania, Will taught Tony and Johnny how to play this game, as they hadnt played it before.

We played the turn order wrongly, but I dont think it affected play too much.

Johnny won from Tony and I came last as I often do when teaching a game! soblue


Tony liked the game - likening it to a subtle version of ticket to ride.

Tony and Gaz left when their respective games ended leaving four players to bring out 7 Wonders. Will, Mark, Johnny and Don brought out this favourite - which unusually hadnt seen table time for a while.

In a tight game Don and Johnny drew on points with Don winning the tie break with more money in hand DD. Mark beat Will into last place by two points! Will ascribed this to stupidity in playing one wrong card! gulp

THURSDAY 26th JANUARY 2012 - 8 players turned up!

By pre-arrangement Dave, Steve, Mark and Don played this excellent card wargame. However Don had left his army deck at home in Edinburgh! shake So had to borrow a spare army.

I don't know much about the first game - but in the second Dave and Don paired up against Steve and Mark. The double D's lost - possibly because of Don unfamiliarity with his borrowed deck.

Paul, Will, Danni and Matthew settled down to play Amyitis - with the expansion.

Will and Paul had plated before. That didn't stop Will from losing REALLY badly!

Paul ended up being last player ALL game as Matthew remained first player. He found that his game was forced on him by lack of choice - and as matthew said - he was forced to win - by a large margin!

Matthew came second and Danni third in a tightly contested battle.

With Amyitis finishing reasonably early - Fresco came out for a run - as this hadn't hit the table in a while.

Matthew spent ALL his money on an early market in the first round and took a while to recover afterwards.

Paul played a game of Money,Money, Money and Danni tried the "Front Runner" cool approach to winning.

Paul won easily with a repeat of the position in the Amyitus game with Matthew second, Danni third and Will last - who was mostly yellow less for the whole game cry.
