So euro gamers (I'm looking at you Karl and John) - Urban sprawl or Trickerion? Both 4 players. I need my fix.

Why aren't you looking at me? Is it because I didn't play Imperial Assault with you?

John keeps banging on about Trickerion so I'd quite like to have a play at that please!

Hi all, I've just signed up and will be heading to my first meeting next week.

I've just getting back into board gaming after a long hiatus. Used to play Talisman quite a bit and have been playng android ports of Ticket to Ride, Axis and Allies and Elder Signs more recently.

Any advice on what would be a good game to start with on Tuesday?

Hi Adam - you can just turn up and join a game. See what takes your fancy. We usually get around 6-7 games going at any one time and there is plenty of variety.

A few of the games are arranged in advance - on this form - but there should still be plenty of turn up and join in games happening.

Loo forward to meeting you.

Sam - are we still on for Cosmic Encounter? Anyone else want to join? I suggest we start with basic rules (though perhaps the expanded selection of races) and then add expansions as we play more through the year. My copy now contains a ridiculous amount of plastic bags separating all the expansion components...

Absolutely. Pretty sure I haven't promised myself to anyone else Smile

AdamB, why not join us? It's a classic and very easy to get in to.

Depends a bit on number of players, but assuming we do a 4-5 player game (which I think is the sweet spot) then probably about 90 mins? Last time I played at the club we managed two games of it + something else on a Tuesday night.

Sounds good Paul, count me in! (anything less than 2 hours is short in my book)

1. Paul
2. Sam
3. Jamie
4. Arun
5. Jon

I expect I'll be coming early for food. It saves on the washing up.

I fancy a bit of Euro action, myself. I think I'll bring along Castles of Burgundy and Shakespeare and see if I can grab some passers by for either of them.

I won't be there until 7, but I'd happily join you for Castles of Burgundy (or Shakespeare too I imagine, but I don't know anything about that one)

I enjoyed our Cosmic Encounter last night! Hope others did too.

A couple of people were asking about the expansions / optional elements. I think the main extra things that we didn't play with (but could in the future) are:

- Technology - you can (temporarily) spend ships to research technology to give you an extra ability
- Space Stations - you start with a space station (which you can trade) which gives you an extra ability / weapon
- Hazards - some destiny cards trigger a hazard which affects how things go in encounters either temporarily or permanently
- Reward cards - special 'better' rewards for defending allies which introduce various new types of cards
- Team rules
- The fact that there are nearly 200 separate freakin' aliens to choose from (the ones we had yesterday were mostly at the milder end of game-breakingness)

Would love to try some of these out separately or in combination :-)
