It was that time between Xmas and New Year. The time where no regular get togethers are scheduled because people are away or otherwise unavailable. Right? Wrong - instead we saw a record turnout of 11 people at David Coutt's residence.
As more and more people turned up we looked for a game that could take a lot of players. 6 Nimmt was the obvious choice, so a nine player game ensued. Totally chaotic and I'm not sure the people at the far end of the table had a clue what cards were in the middle anyway... Unfortunately I can't offer this excuse as I was directly opposite.
