St Albans Boardgames Club 28 November 2015 11 December 2015

St Albans is a bit far away for me to visit regularly, but their boardgames club was having a big Saturday event so I went along. Images follow: cc-by-sa on everything.

This took place at the Town Hall in the middle of St Albans, and probably drew about 50-60 people.

The inevitable Codenames, with a mixture of novices and old boardgame hands having fun.

I got in a game of Colt Express, and did slightly better than last time, but I still think there are important aspects to the gameplay that I'm not getting.

I didn't play, but observed Risk: Doctor Who. Can't go wrong with plastic Daleks, right?

I corrupted some of the regulars with a few hands of Red 7. I think I'm finally getting the hang of how to explain it: with lots of cards laid down on the table to serve as examples.

I only hung around for a few hours, but this is a friendly bunch and if they do this again I'll be going back.

    Dalek Risk is one of the best versions of the game that I've played. Thematically right and plastic Daleks!
