    Started off with Thurn & Taxis, did not watch the person to the right of me who managed to get the final route card and end the game as he was the last player, so none of us could make the points. Then Mow, a cow and flies game in which I had not many flies and won because of it. The Shadow Hunters which was very fun. Lastly we played Dixit with 12 players, a fun and rowdy group.

    If anyone is interested in a newbie game of 18XX, let me know.

    • Marty B.

      thanks for showing me how to play 18MEX. Looking forward to trying it again, with slightly more understanding!

    • Riccardo F.

      For scores, Adam was in front with 4k+, then John with 3.9k, Tagore with 3.8k then Marty with 3.8k (although slightly less than tagore) and then me with 3.7k.

    Epic game of Munchkin. In 3 hours I never got beyond level 2. Oh well, next time...

    June 8, 2013

  • Stuart (.

    Played Settlers Of Catan, Ark Of The Covenant, several games of Coup (where Rowan was exceptionally fiendish) and then a twelve-rabbit game of Dixit Odyssey.

    Nice evening, played Airlines, King of Tokyo and Princess Letter, won two of three!!!! Okay so I did play with a newbie :). Very good night had lots of fun, thanks all :)

    • John M

      Since the third of the games was won by that same new member, we can't blame him for your surprising success :)

    Short evening for me because I was so tired for a looong day and I leave early. I enjoyed playing a game similar to Ticket to Ride with Nathan and an USA couple anyway.

    June 7, 2013

  • Martin S

    Fun game of Airlines Europe, followed by a quick death in King of Tokyo. To finish - some grand-master level deduction in love letter which led Rocky to a win.

    Hi, sorry short notice, something came up and won't be able to make it today! Definitely next time :))

    I would love a game of Agricola

      Would you guys be willing to teach a newbie?

      June 7, 2013

    • Gabe C.

      Right then, I will focus on hosting until then.

      James - I am usually happy to run an Agricola game teaching newbies, but I warn you in this case. Vika, Bij, Richard and I would make a truly vicious set of opponents for a 5-player game. That being said - I'm not saying no. Find me when I'm there, as the host I have to show up earlier for once.

    I'm another relative newbie looking for a game to get involved in :)

    June 7, 2013

  • Ian P.

    Still figuring out what to bring. Any requests?

    June 6, 2013

    • Gabe C.

      I'm with Bij. I don't have gric in my bag, but need to practice if it's there.. Otherwise, HansaT.

      June 7, 2013

    • Ian P.

      Cool, hansa t will probably happen, I need to get the expansion at some point

      June 7, 2013

  • Teri

    I am bringing/ getting Nathan to bring Castles of Burgandy and Thurn and Taxis. I'll hopefully be there by 6.15pm. I am happy to teach if anyone is interested :)

    June 7, 2013

    • Nathan

      *Burgundy* shakes his head. I also have Spectaculum and Airlines Europe and will hopefully be playing Airlines plus something else. I kind of want to wait and see what is going on first plus I have a friend coming along who will arrive a bit later so not sure how I am going to juggle that.

      June 7, 2013

  • Dávid T.

    Mike E: As discussed, I'm bringing Battlestar, with all the expansions, including MY CUSTOM MADE one.

    There is 1-2 open spaces still available, experienced players (Pegasus and Exodus) only this time, sorry...

    1 · May 29, 2013

    • Dávid T.

      Well if Mike haven't filled the last spot yet, then I guess it's yours. Mike?

      June 5, 2013

    • Mike E

      Ok with me. I'm good to go. Let's root out the toasters.

      1 · June 6, 2013

  • Gabe C.

    New folks are good. I'll be around for the evening playing something or other and welcoming you.

    Should you see any group of people standing and muttering at the table full of boxed games, my advice is to wander up and you'll get included in a game - that said, I'll do my bit to see that happen as well.

    June 6, 2013

  • Fozia
