Games Night 20th September 2018

We numbered three again this week were we gave a nice warm welcome to DV.
We started off the evening with the newly acquired expansion to Star Realms by White Wizard Games

We played the free-for-all variation of this competitive space-based deck-building game. We were all far too nice to each other and slowly whittled each other down to the single numbers.

In the end we did just manage it, literally with the final card having been revealed. We also know a lot better for next time.
Regardless, this was really great fun.
