Well, there seemed to be some interest in Terra Mystica so I think Kat and I will bring that down on Tuesday. Room for 3 more players...

I'd love to give it a go sometime Paul. Next week will be a flying visit for me though, that's if I turn up at all. Hope to play it eventually though.

Just give me a shout for a future week as I'm always happy to play it. I've owned it for about a year and have only managed to play it 3 times!

I'm bringing my latest  acquisition, Brewcrafters. Lizzy has expressed an interest in playing, anyone else?

Blinky - I'll be bringing Dead of Winter in a couple of weeks, if you can wait that long :-)

Wow, ok, so purely in order of reply the spots for Terra Mystica this week are...

1. PaulG
2. Kat
3. Steveygee
4. Aneurin
5. Ste

Sam - you are first reserve in case anyone changes their mind! (Or if not then I'll bring it down again soon and you and Jamie can play...)

For those who haven't played before I'd recommend at least a skim of the rulebook which can be found here. I'll go through the rules on Tuesday, but it's the sort of game that takes a little time to click (but when it does everything is super-logical).

For those who missed out at Terra Mystica, I bought Village at the weekend which is a medium Euro about life (and death!) in a small village.

It plays up to 4 so if you're up for a challenge let me know.

"Life in the village is hard – but life here also allows the inhabitants to grow and prosper as they please. One villager might want to become a friar. Another might feel ambitious and strive for a career in public office. A third one might want to seek his luck in distant lands.

Each player will take the reins of a family and have them find fame and glory in many different ways. There is one thing you must not forget, however: Time will not stop for anyone and with time people will vanish. Those who will find themselves immortalized in the village chronicles will bring honor to their family and be one step closer to victory.

Village is a game full of tactical challenges. A smart and unique new action mechanism is responsible for keeping turns short and yet still tactically rich and full of difficult decisions. Also unique is the way this game deals with the delicate subject of death; as a natural and perpetual part of life in the village, thoughts of death will keep you focused on smart time-management."

I'm playing Terra Mystica first, I'll play this afterwards depending on if there is a spot and you either a) aren't playing it first or b) up for playing it again afterwards!

I ran off before I dealt with this so did anybody put Lizzy's copy of Colt Express in the seat box?

Hi Sam, I put it under the seat in the corner where we played Avalon.

Great game by the way, well played team evil!

I played poorly. I find it hard to track who is approving and rejecting (esp. with 10 players). As a good guy, I think you really need to remember that data, and cross reference it with all the other snippets of data you collate through the duration of the game.

I made a few Percival specific errors too. Paying too much attention to Morgana (Sam) in an attempt to discover Merlin / Morgana. Andy suggested my choosing to use LOTL on Morgana was an error too. With hindsight, I think I agree. Sure, it made it clear who was Merlin / Morgana, but at what cost? It put LOTL in the hands of evil. I only confirmed something that I already suspected, and would have been made apparent in time anyway. It also hinted to the fact that I was Percival.

That quite a few people were asking Percival to out himself, was interesting. It's clearly in the interests of evil for Percival to out himself, which would imply only evil people would suggest Percival do so? Can't remember, was it the evil players asking Percival to out himself last night?

Anyhow, great game, always amazes me every time I play, how much I don't know about the game, and how much more there is to learn!

I've heard people (Andy?) suggest keeping a track of one or two players at a time, for a few turns. I think the middle rounds are where you get the best data from votes. To early and it doesn't matter enough for people to vote honestly, too late and it matters too much — with some people under suspicion votes are more likely to be bluffs. 

I made a few Percival specific errors too. Paying too much attention to Morgana (Sam) in an attempt to discover Merlin / Morgana. Andy suggested my choosing to use LOTL on Morgana was an error too. With hindsight, I think I agree. Sure, it made it clear who was Merlin / Morgana, but at what cost? It put LOTL in the hands of evil. I only confirmed something that I already suspected, and would have been made apparent in time anyway. It also hinted to the fact that I was Percival.

Also with Mordred in the game Merlin could be even less help than usual. I think the spies had the advantage in that game. Still, I was almost proud that with good having LotL twice and finding a spy and winning the first two missions we still managed to pull it back for a clean victory. 


That quite a few people were asking Percival to out himself, was interesting. It's clearly in the interests of evil for Percival to out himself, which would imply only evil people would suggest Percival do so? Can't remember, was it the evil players asking Percival to out himself last night?

Weirdly, no, half of my team-mates were asleep (stellar tactics, Nicole, I'll have to try that one next time) and I don't think Matt mentioned Percival.
