Games we play - a belated update 2

Tapestry has now been played on two consecutive weeks, and I am happy to say that it is definitely my kind of game, and has gone down very well with all the other players too. It takes a couple of hours or so to play, it has a fair bit going on but is quite intuitive so not hard to learn and cracks along at a decent pace. Recognizably a Stonemaier game, following in the footsteps of Euphoria and Scythe, but also, with a central map area surrounded by four advancement tracks, distantly related to Settlers of the Stone Age, an old favourite of mine.

On Sunday the shop hosted a birthday party, with jelly, trifle and lots of games. Codenames was a natural choice, Citadels rounded the day off nicely, and some longer stuff featured too: Agricola, Power Grid, and Tapestry. I couldn’t let the day go by without a game of The River – a "proper" game but only about half an hour playing time, and friend Paul brought along Whacky Races, which is a quick game of lightweight fun, but due to the painted playing pieces, and doubtless some hefty licensing fees, cost a small fortune. It may turn up in shops that cater to a rich clientele...
