Games Night 7th June 2021

Just the three of this virtual (via Board Game Arena) week.

Lots of smaller games today.
We kicked off with Splendor (Space Cowboys)

All went swimmingly for most.
In the end the scores were:

Malcolm Paul Phil
White 4 3 1
Blue 5 3 1
Green 2 3 3
Red 4 2 5
Black 4 3 4
Nobles 0 1 2
Score 9 17 13

Nicely done there, Paul!

Next up, Phil introduced us to Railroad ink (Horrible Guild)

After Phil explained some of the rules we embarked on the playing of the game.
The first game was played without us realising we could filp the images.

A victory for Malcolm
We tried it again:

We all improved somewhat, particularly when it was discovered that the shapes could be flipped. Malcolm won again.
We tried it a third time:

Same result.
I really liked this game, not just because I kept winning (which does help, of course) but it’s how my brain works. I also thing this one benefits by being digital. I’m not normally a fan of roll and write games because my penmanship is atrocious.

Moving on, we then played a couple of games of Kingdomino (Blue Orange Games)

Round one saw Malcolm get stymied regarding tile placement:

A big win for Phil there.
Round two:

Better scores all round, but Phil smashed it.

All in all, a great evening of games. Sometimes it’s quite nice to play lots of shorter games rather than spending the whole evening on one game.
Plus, everybody won something.
