Great event, and many thanks to all those who helped to run games etc on the day.

I played;

Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 4 – Nederland
The addition of money, with variable pries for routes, is an interesting twist on the usual TtR game. My only quibble is that the bonus points for money seems to me to be too big. 50+ points for most money! I think the main focus of any TtR game should be to complete routes, and bonus points for money should add be a decider in a close game rather than a way to snatch victory from way behind.

Star Trek: Attack Wing
The game is okay but does not float my boat to be honest. It all seems to rely too much on lucky dice rolls rather than tactics. The miniature sculpts are fine, but the paint jobs are an horrible.

Firefly: The Game
Fun game and easy to pick up the rules. There is a bit of a lack of player interaction, and if you pick up some duff jobs by bad luck you are not going to be able to get rid of them and go and do something productive. It is thematically close to the tv series, and the components are nice.
