A Very Quiet Time...

This month has been very quiet.  Nothing has happened since the club meet on the 2nd September.  So sad, but that's my life at the best of times.  In an emergency call, otherwise leave well alone...

I have been slowly adding to my board game collection as a result.  No idea why, I guess I'm waiting for a horde of friends to support me. (Yes I'm bitter and twisted.)

Liked the looks of this game, watched some play throughs and reviews, consulted BGG and came to conclusion it was worth the money.  My only concern it keeping the die faces from being lost or becoming too loose from play (highly unlikely).

A very nice production set, overpriced but so nice to have.  I think that this will be better than Love Letter in the long run.

So disappointed in the fact that the copy I have is not similar to the copy I have played.  I now need to find the expansions...  Happy to at least own a copy, even if it's not quite what I wanted.

Yes I was attracted to this but the price (cheap and within my budget).  I now check my game purchases through the means I've noted previously.  I'm looking forward to giving this game a go - soon with luck.

The most lacklustre packaging for a game.  A plain cardboard box with Secret Hitler marked on the front.  No information about the game at all anywhere on the box to explain what's in the box.  I guess they were expecting word of mouth to sell the game.  I only bought this game through the generosity of Games World (Carindale) who allowed me to check out their opened box.  After checking the internet for more information and seeing a game in action I decided that it was worth purchasing.  Hopefully this will get a game at the next club meet in October.

My son raved about this show and finally I sat down and watched it - as a result I am hooked on this nonsensical series.  I had to watch a YouTube clip to understand how to play the game, only because I'm getting lazy with the desire to read rules.

In ending I must thank a couple of people (who wish to remain anonymous) for support in obtaining these games.  As a pensioner I don't have much cash, so to have some generous benefactors engenders much gratification and happiness from me.  Thank you.

Till next time.

Blind Pig Games Club 2nd September

Today was the Blind Pig and a few games were played and looked at.  Lots of fun was enjoyed by the games on offer.

Link to BGG is HERE for those seeking more information.

Close games.  Pat and I played a two player game to start while waiting for the trailer to arrive with the tables and terrain.  I won the first game.  Next we managed a four player game, in which I came last, difference in places between 1st and last was only 10 points.

Played this game as we had seven people.  Dragged on and in the end everyone decided to call it and move on to another game.

Set up and were going to play but the lateness of the day and learning curve had the game packed up with a decision to play Red Dragon Inn.

Proved to really popular and was hilarious to play.  Two of us who played have opted to get the game.  Lots of fun, highly recommend.

Below are pictures for the rest of day.
