Helvetia x5 - So much fun. It's a travesty this gem wasn't released outside Germany.

Also, Fleetx2 - A beautiful little game.

SATURDAY

3x Pentago
2x Coup with large groups of people - lost both games.
1x Lords of Waterdeep teaching two new people - won by a very slim margin after a heated rules argument (which I called incorrectly after checking the FAQ - it didn't affect the end scoring for me, just 2nd place).

SUNDAY - No games played, studied for an upcoming exam instead.

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

Friday with her:
Fresco

Saturday with her:
Kingdom Builder x2

SundayGaming group:
Kingdom Builder
Love letter
Jaipur

Sunday with her:
Dominion (Mostly Cornucopia)
Jaipur

-------------

So Fresco was a first attempt. Turns out we got it wrong in a few places, but will be going back for more, preferably with 3+ players though

Jaipur was something that caught my eye a while back as a fun filler, and When I tried it (after buying it against her orders!) I was really pleased that it was exactly as good as I'd hoped.

In general I'd hoped to play other things I didn't already know, but we got the the games group 3 minutes after the start and most people hard paired off, so I had to be boss with other newbies with the few I'd brought along.

Suburbia x1

Saturday
Small World x1
Carcassonne x1
Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age x2 (Solo)
Suburbia x1
Jenga: Donkey Kong Collector's Edition x1

Sunday
1955: The War of Espionage x1
Earth Reborn x1

Pretty good weekend of gaming. Got a couple good plays of Suburbia in. Had a good session of Earth Reborn, did a refresh session. We got some of the rules wrong at first (it had been a while since we played it), looking forward to next game though, I think it'll play much smoother, can't wait to get to randomly generated scenarios.

Had an intense game of Small World with my girlfriend. It was a close 2 player game the whole way through, I thought I had her beat when I took my second race into decline and moved onto a third right before the last round (which she explained she didn't know you could decline more than once). In the end I lost 88-84.

On Saturday I played a 6 player game of Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game where our poor humans fell prey to the Cylon menance. After that we nearly got to finish a game of The Princes of Florence.

Twilight Imperium base game with 4 of us. I've played once before a couple years ago. Took us about 6-7 hours after the rules explanation. I was one coin flip ground battle away from winning, but I lost the coin flip.

Saturday
2 * Caverna: The Cave Farmers
2 * Scrabble

My girlfriend had Uni work to do, but seeing as I have a job and it was the weekend I had nothing, so I played a couple of games of Caverna solo (Second game was 2-player solo, tried doing farming vs adventuring ^^). When she finished with working we had a couple of games of scrabble, winning one each.

Sunday
3 * Dixit
2 * Qwirkle

We went to visit my SO's Dad in Nottingham for the day, and were requested by Graces' Uncle to bring Dixit along. I bought it and qwirkle and we ended up playing games nearly the entire time we were there. I really love that these games are so accessible to so many people! I won 2/3 games of Dixit & 0/2 of qwirkle, good day!

Thoughts on Augustus? I've really been wanting to get it, but the bingo mechanic is off-putting. soblue

My group and I played 7 Wonders for the first time and everyone loved it. Really a great game.

I was in the same boat with you, until I tried it. Really enjoyed it. It doesn't feel like you're just playing bingo. Our group had a lot of fun. But it probably depends on the group as well.

Pathfinder Adventure Card Game - Played a couple of times. Introduced a new player to the game and we were successful in hunting down the villain. The second time my wife and I were able to successfully defend Sandpoint.

Say Bye to the Villains - The villains said goodbye to the Vanquishers after killing all of us.

Last Will - My ability to burn through money in real life translated well to the game and I was able to rack up the highest debt.

Speculation - Got destroyed by someone who finally learned how to play the game properly.

Waterworksx2. Found this at a thrift store last week. I wasn't expecting much but it was great! Could definitely see it in my top ten card games, and it was a perfect 2 player experience.

King's VineyardI was a bit disappointed in this game the first time we played it. I had the complete opposite experience this time. I think I was just treating it wrong. This is a game you play when you are settling down for the night and you just want to relax.
