So Imperial Assault Campaign day confirmed for Myself, Lizzy, Kes, Pauly G and Karlito B...

Stock up on Vitamin C guys - in the words of Vader... "I want that [campaign finished], NOT excuses"

If anyone wants to try TIME Stories : Asylum I can bring it along (I can't play, as I've already completed the mission.

Otherwise, I'm planning on bringing Survive: Space Attack with me, plus a few others...

I've got a few new unplayed games if anyone wants to try them-
Mysterium - UK version of the polish murder mystery game
Helios - Euro fantasy game about using the sun to power your economy
Jerusalem - Area control game, doesn't appear to be a religious game, just set in the city
Wunderland - Family style game similar to Ticket to Ride
Tiny Epic Galaxies - big space game in a small box
Lord of the Rings - older Reiner Knizia co-op game

Still in for Food Chain Magnate. Sign me up for Knizia's Lord of the Rings one week, Rik. But maybe not next next week because I'm hoping John is bringing Fury of Dracula... And does anyone want to suggest a game for Tuesday December 22nd? Cool

Karl, you have to show up one week because I've got a book to return to you! I'll see if I can find something cool to reciprocate.

Hrm - just had word from Ashley at the Uni Arms - I get the impression that during December if the Uni Arms gets a big meal booking on a Tuesday night we will be out (except on the 15th of course because that's us)! Annoying but understandable... so be prepared people for some slight last minute venue searches... I will post if anything occurs...

For now the Uni Arms has no bookings on Tuesday evenings so we are fine... Don't Panic... Carry on...

I'm going to bow out of this.... I'll have to slope off about 9 - 9.30ish so I'm looking for something not too epic... Very Happy

Food Chain Magnates: are we playing the full game or the intro game? Video with the designers suggesting playing the intro game first (skip to 10:00):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYjvu3ka2Gw

(Great designer's quote: "if you can't lose in the first turn, the first turn should not be played".)

I'm fine either way but I think I'd slightly rather play the intro game first so that when I play the full thing I know what I'm doing from the first turn and I don't end up floundering for three hours.

The intro game is good for learning the game yes, but it misses out on some key strategies. The game has a finite length that everyone knows so there's less long term strategies there, there are no bonuses in the game which spoils a bunch of strategies and a couple of other things.
Once you get going in the intro game you get to a point where you realise it's not the full game and you're restricted on a bunch of mechanics. I'm open to doing that but the game is much shorter and not as fun as the full version - I've played the full game twice and lost both times so chances are I'll lose again!
