Carcassonne: The Plague

This week we had two new players, Matt and Dan, who joined me to try out the Carcassonne expansion The Plague, a free give-away in spielbox issue 2010/6. It turned out to be a good expansion that changes the game substantially (meeples can move and get killed!) and gives ...

2015 Tournament End

This year's tournament ended with Bill blowing away the competition (Dan, James, Keith) by over 40VP in the final, a game of Castles of Burgundy, chosen by the league's winner, James.

I wasn't able to make the last league game (Caylus) and Bill took the chance to ...

Christmas session 2014

UK Games Expo 2013

Last Saturday I attended my first ever games convention, the UK Games Expo. It was sufficiently easy to reach by public transportation to convince me to drag my lazy bum out of the house. But not before 9am, of course. I reached Birmingham International by train at 10am, and after ...

Norenberc and Cartagena session

Going to the games night this week was again a last minute decision, this time because I was recovering from a bad cold. Feeling quite OK and eager to get my Euros back from Matt, as he wasn't able to bring my pre-ordered copy of Caravelas from Essen, I ...

Those Pesky Humans and Ascension session

This week I had to delay participation in the game's night to the last minute, due to a parent's evening. As I arrived I couldn't believe my eyes: the room was completely packed, with hardly any empty floor space between tables. I had never seen so many ...
