Played an excellent game of Cyclades with 2 new players, one of whom won the game through the well planned use of a hero. I made a tactical error at the beginning of the game from which I couldn't recover, which is a flaw in the game as I did some excellent plays later on :(

Loooove Dominant Species, such a lovely game. Did miss a little bit of drama this time, as we did not have any evil players this time. Pouria has TONNES of patience, may be I should borrow some from you. Miss war games a lot or at least any game that has some attack element. If anyone is playing anything even slightly aggressive, please, please give me a shout.

1. Spectaculum with Paul Ag. and Soren which Soren won.
2. King of Tokyo with Mehran, Nadine, Lara David and David. Slow couple of rounds, then 3 of us dropped in quick succession. I moved off to play another round of Spectaculum so not sure who won.
3. Spectaculum with Fiona, Lloyd and BK which despite feeling like I was losing I managed to win by 1 point, a very convincing win!
4. Airlines Europe with Fiona, Lloyd, Teri and Stan which ended in another convincing win for me - oh wait, I just won the tiebreaker!
5. Boy/girl/boy/girl Resistance with Teri, Ronan, BK, Alex, Fiona, Lloyd and Nadine. We three spies won thanks mainly to Fiona looking innocent. My final win of the evening although I basically sat there and did nothing lol.
A good night.

Not entirely according to plan, but a good selection of gaming: first was introduction to Spectaculum, which was very clever. (My score, alas, was not.) Then a round of Tale of the Arabian Nights. Despite the usual disease / grief / imprisonment / death, all three of us were headed to Baghdad for the win on the same turn. Finished with Santiago de Cuba which is another nice game. Thanks to all my co-players.

I think we need to have another bash at Cyclades + Hades expansion. All those interested in conquering a collection of Greek islands with the aid of titans, gods and heroes then feel free to sign up below. The game plays 5, so 4 slots available. I am willing to teach new players btw.
