Games Night 29th March 2021

Six of us for this virtual week!

We thought we’d try our hand at Al Hambra (Queen Games)

We got our money cards and play commenced.
We all built something.
And scored something:

Emily Malcolm Matt Paul Phil Ruthie
86 56 58 62 75 56

A decent win for Emily there.

Next up we played Seven Wonders (Repos Production)

Cards were played, money changed hands and armies did their thing.

Final scores:

Emily Malcolm Matt Paul Phil Ruthie
CONFLICT 2 -3 6 16 1 6
COINS 2 3 1 8 10 6
WONDER 0 10 7 10 10 10
CIVILIAN 13 6 19 6 22 23
SCIENCE 13 5 0 4 4 0
COMMERCE 5 3 3 3 4 0
GUILD 14 8 22 0 0 6
Total 51 32 58 47 51 51

Matt’s civilisation for the win!

Finally we played Downforce (Restoration Games)

After the bidding, we owned some cars:

Emily (Determined): Blue
Malcolm (Aggressive): Orange
Matt (Tricky): Green
Paul (Cunning): Red
Phil (Strategic): Yellow
Ruthie (Unpredictable): Black

The end of the race looked a bit like this:

A solid win for Phil!!!

Games Night 16 November 2020

This is for day two of #Blogmas2020

Thanks to the existence of Board Game Arena a games night happened.
I was contacted out of the blue by members of the group when I was based in Bedford asking if I wanted to play a game. Naturally, I said yes so games we played, remotely.

Three of us this week: Malcolm, Paul & Phil
First up Phil introduced us to

from Restoration Games
We ended up playing two games of this. The first was on the main board and saw Paul and Malcolm fumbling about not really knowing what they were doing.

In the end, the final scores were:
Malcolm: 4
Paul: 11
Phil: 26

For round two, we played on the Danger Circuit board:

This time we all had a better idea of how to play this game, and the final scores were:
Malcolm: 11
Paul: 20
Phil: 6
It just goes to show what happens when you show someone else how to play a game you already know how to play…

With some time left we decided to play

from Libellud

Malcolm explained the rules this time.
Dice were rolled and picked, tokens were claimed and cards were played.

The final score:
Malcolm: 106
Paul: 165
Phil: 130

Well done Paul!
