Games Night 13th March 2018

Our second Tuesday in a bid to increase player availablility, so we had 3 players this week.

Kicking off with:

by Tinkerbot Games
In the manner of all successful ghosts everywhere, our ghosts scared the stuffing out of a whole bunch of unfortunate hotel guests whose only crime was to be alive.


The final scores were:
HG (White): 163
MC (Blue): 142
PH (Black): 152

HG then bowed out early so we had a quick 2-player attempt at the newly acquired

by IDW Games
PH won by being dealt the required ninja each turn and turning it over. Either this game doesn’t work as a 2-player game, or we did something wrong. We were a little disappointed in this one.

A fun evening otherwise.

It’s been quiet lately, so I’ve changed the day to a Tuesday: 3 players this week…

Games Night 22nd February 2018

Three players this week, I’m thinking of changing the day we have this.

First up we played:

as provided by KV and by Czech Games Edition
A new one for all three of us.

KV (Yellow) mainly dominated the green food and wood wheel, HG (Red) enjoyed the brown resource wheel and MC (Green) made much use of the red and yellow wheels (and the blue one too). These were the wheels we sat closest too…

At game end the scores were:
HG: 15
KV: 27
MC: 47
Hurrah for MC!

HG then bowed out leaving MC and KV to play:

by Bombyx
MC quickly explained the rules to KV and dives were…um…dived, Lords were acquired and locations were located.

Final scores:

Player KV MC
Location VPs 10 9
Lord VPs 45 50
Affiliate VPs 19 15
Monster VPs 7 3
Total Score 81 77

Very well done to KV!

An evening where we can’t win at out own games.
Good stuff!
