Wednesday Night Gamers August 2014

Where have the last few months gone? My last post started with an apology for not having posted for a while, and this time it's been even longer! In my defence as the summer has been lovely so far I have been outside rather than tied to my computer whenever I had the opportunity. We have, however been playing plenty of games on Wednesday evenings.

Several weeks back Phil and I had several games of Euphoria with different people and numbers each time giving varying results on the scores, with me winning one and being thoroughly beaten into last in another. All very enjoyable though.

A couple of weeks back we had Star and her daughter Philipa join us. As they are new to gaming we got out some of the quick fun games to ease them gently into things, in the last couple of weeks we have played A Fistful of Penguins, Tsuro, Anomia, Cartagena 2, Walk the Plank, Three Little Pigs, Labyrinth, Dodekka, Dobble and a few others I can't remember.

Phil, in the meantime has getting out some of his old favourites, Hacienda and Antike, as well as trying out the newer games Concordia and Istanbul.

Last Wednesday I had a game of Tsuro to start the evening, followed by Dodekka while waiting for more players to arrive. Then we split up and I ended up playing a game of Guildhall, I really like this game, but hadn't played it for some time and got one of the rules wrong, it didn't matter too much as we were all playing the same way, but I must remember to tell the people I was playing with next time they come down. I was beaten into a very last place by three new players, and as is usually the case between the others it was a very close finish with Cameron winning.

Then we played Forbidden Desert. I have only played it once before at Game Expo when it first came out and having lost quite quickly wanted to try again. We didn't fare much better, things weren't looking too bad for a while, until one of the party lost all their water and died, game over!

Then with games finishing and some people leaving there were three of us left looking for a game to finish off the evening. Phil and Chris having seen Guildhall being played earlier fancied a game themselves, so out it came again, this time playing the correct rules, and I just sneaked in a win.
