Wednesday Night Gamers 26th February 2014

This week Paul brought down Francis Drake. Paul and Carole had run through a round of the game previously to get an idea of the rules and mechanics of the game, but for the rest of us it was new. Apart from a couple of minor mistakes (which, although altering the game slightly didn't matter as they affected us all equally) the game play went very smoothly. The first round everyone had the "oh no! I should have done that differently" moments, but that's just the learning curve. By the end of the game we all knew basically what we wanted to do, but in the manner of this type of game, were either beaten to what we wanted, had to compromise with what we had or try to scupper the opposition.

Starting at 8pm with 5 players was maybe a bit ambitious, but we were pleasantly surprised that the game fitted well into the time we had even with reading the rules first. I thoroughly enjoyed the game, it's a pity we can't get it back in stock.

Scores: Phil won, closely followed by Sam, the Paul, Sally and Carole.

The other games played were Race for the Galaxy which Richard won, Skull & Roses, Glass Road (which was tried as a 2 player and worked very well) and Factory Manager.
