    Great evening, had a terrific time people bought some great games, so thanks to all those who bought them, Paul bought Galaxy truckers which I would love to try, but when Chris arrived with Eclipse I had to try it. 6 players made it pretty intense. The final list of scores:
    Red (John) : 29
    Blue (Dan) : 31
    Green (Paul) : 10
    Black (David) : 24
    Yellow (Chris) : 19
    White (Ian) : 15
    I made a major error by attacking Blues home world without developing nuetron bombs, Then he blocked me as I tried to return, hense the low score. It was a pretty intense game. The game itself would be improved by some kind of event cards and espionage, but anyway it is a good multi dimensioned game for all that.

      @Paul: I think what he mean is this - at the end of the game when we were madly rushing to tot up the scores and pack away he counted up victory points on the hexes that he'd invaded in the last turn on the assumption that he'd 'won' them. However, he then realised that actually all he'd done was take it off the other player and it was now empty space and he didn't score those victory points unless he chose to influence the hexes. But he couldn't do that because he spent all of his resources in the last round and therefore couldn't influence all (any?) of the hexes as he would have gone bankrupt (game over).

      well if we're into recounts my unclaimed builds need a check. Mind you, there were only three victory points in it so...!

      Really enjoyed the game. Thanks guys and girls.

      Loved the way everyone was holding back their 'best' cards for the end, ready for anyone that dared approach the helipad: "hey, you there...you can miss a turn....you can move where I say...you can start back at the town square...your weapon's jammed"...etc...etc­!! :-)

      April 8, 2013

    Great fun people and game.

    Cake!!!

    brilliant!!

    Played an epic game of Eclipse, that could have done with another 20 mins or so, but it was a good game - and judging by the amount of noise in the room everyone else was having fun too. And thanks for the cake Kenda!

      Also enjoyed eclipse very much. I think chris just cost me 60 quid (clearly its all your fault I want to buy this game and I have no control over my own actions...)

    Okay this is the earliest time I have been home on a Friday so able to grab some games to bring along I grabbed Guards, Guards - thurn and taxis - pandemic (original only don't have on the brink - yet) - space hulk : death angel - citadels and a couple of 2 player just in case Dragonheart and Aton. Don't have to play any of them but at least it gives options. See you in a bit DJ

    April 5, 2013

  • john

    Wow 17 people signed up so far, which equals our record set last year... Must be the offer of free cake... we should do that more often - hope it's a big cake though! ;-)

    April 5, 2013

    • Daniel P.

      Just to clarify. Nobody needs to bring cake to play (but it will make you friends :-) )

      April 5, 2013

    • Mark H.

      I was going to buy some cake or doughnuts but only just got home and won't have time. if anyone wants to buy some from supermarket on way in I'll pay you back. Keep it less than £10 though :)

    I can bring Thud and Discworld: Ankh-Morpork for those who are willing to give them a shot? Thud is two player, and Discworld is 4 player (and never been played!).

      excellent! I shall bring them along then :)

      April 3, 2013

    • David J.

      I got guards guards for my birthday so I could bring that too and continue the theme - no clue whether it is any good though.

      April 4, 2013

  • Tony C.

    Will definitely try to make this (guess that makes it a definite maybe!? ;-) ).

    But probably won't be there till nearer 7.30 - 8, which may count me out of some games that've already started, I guess...

    April 3, 2013

    • Mark H.

      it that the thing with hundreds of cards. Looks complicated and a bit dry, but have heard its good and very impressive from a game design point of view.

      April 3, 2013

    • Tony C.

      Yeah - Innovation has 100 or so cards, but apparently has very interesting play mechanics, and some satisfying/tense gameplay. There's a newer release (by Iello) with more engaging artwork, in an attempt to overcome the 'dry' tag, I suspect...

      April 4, 2013

  • john

    I've had a request to bring eclipse along (space exploration), has anyone else played it before and wants another game? Hope this doesn't disqualify me from zombie cake!

    April 2, 2013

    • john

      Yes, bring it along, can never have too many games... ;-)

      April 3, 2013

    • Rob B.

      Really fancy playing eclipse. Never played it before. Looks brilliant thought.

    This is the day after my Birthday! So will be asking my friends and family to buy me a rad game that I can bring along (Zombicide looks good) and I shall bring cake :)

      awesome! That would be great :) will match the cake too then :)

      April 1, 2013

    • Rob B.

      I like the idea of playing something zombie themed :). I want zombicide too. I just spend a couple hundred on cool mini or nots latest kickstarter. I can bring zombie dice as a filler

      April 3, 2013

  • Duncan H.

    Yes - if only for Kenda's cake!

    March 22, 2013

    I think I will be bringing +3 people to this...

    March 25, 2013

    • john

      cool. you can also amend your rsvp to include visitors, so we get a better idea of numbers...

      March 26, 2013

    • Mark H.

      weird - they seem to have introduced a new "allow x number of guests" to new meetups which was set to 0. Have fixed that so people can add guests again.

    Will bring a selection from my games cupboard.

    Can I interest anyone in a game of Galaxy Trucker? I acquired the anniversary edition recently.

    March 24, 2013

    • Tony A.

      If I can make it I would love to try it put - sounds fun and Vlaada Chvaatil (?) games always seem different/interesting at the least.

      March 25, 2013

    • Mark H.

      That is by all accounts a Good Game(TM) and would be interested in playing and building some half-arsed ship that falls apart at first hurdle :)

      March 25, 2013

  • Tony A.

    Hopefully will attend with Kathie but have to be up at 4.45am the next morning and things seem to be all going horribly wrong generally at the moment so will confirm nearer the time!

    March 25, 2013

  • Karl W.

    Will have to see on the day - working 8-8 on a Friday is not a good thing!
