Last night's gaming

I wasn't there - as promised. You lucky, lucky people.

From what I'm told, there were ten people at three tables, playing:

So there you go.

Play board games in Leamington tonight

I'm watching comedy in Northampton tonight, but you're probably not, so you should go to the Newbold Comyn Arms and play board games.

8pm as usual. If previous weeks are a guide, there should be no shortage of games or people.

Have fun!

Last night's gaming

Thirteen gamers - but no worries because we weren't all at the same table.

Games played included:
Tikal's a cracking game. Worth noting that the person who spent the least time agonising over decisions, also won...

Play board games in Leamington tonight

Predictably, we'll be at the Newbold Comyn Arms at 8pm.

I have an urge to figuratively machete my way through the Guatemalan jungle, through the medium of modular board building and turn-order auctioning, so I'm going to bring Tikal.

Other people will bring other games, I'm sure.

Newcomers pay nothing at all. Unless they buy themselves a drink, which would be polite to the owners of the pub, who put up with us so graciously.

Caution: Small Parts

Ooh look, one of our number has started a blog: Caution Small Parts.


Last week's gaming

Ooh, lots of us. Four tables' worth.

We played German Railways ("uninteresting", quoth Gary), Princes of Florence, and other stuff that I didn't pay attention to.

Most importantly: I won Princes of Florence.

Play board games in Leamington tonight

The usual. Fun games. Nice people. 8pm until chucking out time (11pm unless the bar staff get bored). Newbold Comyn Arms. Leamington.

50p each goes to the club games fund, but we waive that for newcomers.

Speaking of the games fund, Gary has told me to link to Shut Up And Sit Down's article about new games to get excited about in 2012. So I have.

Last night's gaming

A bumper New Year's crop of 16 board gamers showed up last night, so we split into 4 tables.

I didn't keep a close eye on what games were played, but they included:

I can only comment on Ninjato, which James brought. 

It's one of those games where you get to choose fewer than you'd like to from a palette of options each turn: pick up fighting cards, to fight guards, to gain treasures, which you can spend to bribe powerful people and to spread rumours, which in turn win you victory points. 

The theming is lovely. There are a lot of rules to take on board at first, but by the first scoring round everything is reasonably clear. Some people might object to the randomness (I don't).

Play board games in Leamington tonight

Not had your fill of games playing over Christmas and New Year?

Want to play something other than Monopoly? Without a paper hat and a groaning stomach?

Newbold Comyn Arms. Tonight. 8pm.
