A fan of new Knizia games
A great game from Reiner Knizia. New once again to Susan & Moray, but Janet was bouncing up and down during the end of their Mediaeval Merchant game itching to get across to join us. So we played a test round to show how the game worked. The into the big one. Then another but the quick 20 minute ending took about 45-50 minutes, as I was leading and no-one wanted to let me win, so prevented me from picking up Hats to win the game, whilst everyone caught up with me.
Anyway, a successful evening with a dozen people, all of whom are exactly right for the group. I had always worried that we'd end up getting an all male student group. However, we'll see how it is after the January quiet period is over, and getting there becomes somewhat more difficult.
