Wednesday Night Gamers 21 May 2014

Well it's been a while since I posted anything because I wasn't able to get down to the shop for quite a while after my hip operation, and when I did I was too tired to stay after work for gaming. I am now very much on the road to recovery and with Beer & Pretzels out of the way I should be able to find time to write about the odd Wednesday Night again.

This week we got out one of the old classics Aquire. Neil had pick it up on the Bring and Buy at the weekend, so wanted to try it out. I had not played it for many years, and it was the first time for the rest of the players. It has a very neat quick play mechanism, easy to pick up, but not so easy to win. Paul had a very good win (it wasn't his game!), and Neil whose game it was, spent most of the game broke and came last. Carole and Tom were second and third (not sure which order) and I came fourth.

Phil was in his element, not only did he get to play Concordia for a long wanted second time, but he spent the game buying wine (which is very appropriate), and then won. A very happy bunny.

The last game of the evening was Splendor. When we first got it in I read the rules and thought it sounded interesting and had been hankering for a game, which finally happened at Beer & Pretzels (played 2, lost 2). So I was keen to have another go. Paul, Carole and Phil hadn't played before, but picked up the general idea fairly immediately. As your go is either pick up tokens, buy a card or save a card your actual go is nice and quick with very little downtime for the other players. When when the cards you want have been picked by other players, making the best of what's been left is the key, or just topping up your tokens 'til something more useful to you comes along. Also works well with 2 players.
