Coming around to that time again.

Time to take over the-

Let me start again.

Board games!

I have a shiny new copy of Rex: Final Days of an Empire I would dearly like to try out; sci-fi war and politics in a city currently under bombardment and ruination for five or six players in up to three hours. It has psychic tortoises and mercantile cat people! Also, fundamentally actually simpler than you might expect rules-wise, although by no means simple. Still, more oriented towards player interaction than strategic positioning, and a rather clever combat system which is fundamentally just about how much you're prepared to sacrifice to win. Plus, true alliances with shared victories are possible. Shocking. Anyone interested?

Despite my intense protestations Dave finally managed to convince me to come this week. I think we're Dice Mastering, after that, who knows? I may bring a couple of my recent purchases along, of which there are far too many.

Lizzy, do you want me to bring Escape?

Unfortunately I won't be down tomorrow (work day in London), but I'd definitely be interested in giving Rex a go if you bring it again in the future. I was just watching a review of it the other day and the different species advantages, combat system, etc. all looks really interesting!

"Intense protestations"?

'Feel like coming down and doing dice masters on Tuesday?'
'Yeah, alright'

You're righ... Intense Smile

I'll be there 7ish. I will bring Castles of Burgandy, Palazzo and Rise of Augustus if anyone fancies any of them? Otherwise I'm happy to play whatever....

Not sure Rex would be my thing, sounds like bidding and arguing to me... but I'll play anything once so count me in Smile.

I've just brought a few things from the Expo: Asteroyds, Abluxxen and Sail to India.

Paul: Yes please! I'll bring some cash.

My attendance will be based on how well my 6 year old feels after school. The 4.30am wakeup this morning hasn't helped me though...
Small world, Taj Mahal, Lewis and Clark & Carson City are in the bag...

Lizzy - I'd really like to try Sail to India if that's a possibility at some point this evening!?  Very Happy

Still at the Red House tonight, Richard.

Sure Evan, I've just read through the rules and it looks interesting. Only does 3-4 though.

Game of the night award: UFOs! Fries From Space!.

Not a joke. The other game I played was Talisman.

Talisman sucks.

I like the premise of talisman but I agree it isn't a great game... Were you also playing the expansion where after 2-3hours of building up your character you finally reach the end card... Flip it over and it basically says "start again"....

Fries from space was actually pretty good. When we figured out what we were doing.

Agreed, it was pretty good fun, glad Jerry had the forethought to print out plenty of copies of the English translation! Smile
