Events and Regular Gaming Nights

7 Years of 7 Wonders, 12 and 14th July
By Sally
7 Wonders Anniversary Event

Despite the traditional Burton apathy and a domestic disaster keeping one of the keenest players away (he had even turned up last week in a vain attempt to join in early), we had some good games of 7 Wonders and introduced a new player to the game. I joined in an early game and came nearly last as usual – I then got thoroughly thrashed at Glass Road, but after partaking of Burton Bridge Brewery's finest brain lubricant I achieved a glorious victory at Nippon. Then it was one more 7 Wonders for the road, and we still have enough promos for a pre-Friday Night Magic Wondrous session to round off the week of celebration. I may just join in again...
