Marlow Tabletop and Board Games 7 November 2016 10 December 2016

Second time at the Marlow Donkey and the fifth monthly meeting of this Meetup-based boardgames group.

We had enough people that the heavy Euro fans could go off to play Rococo while the other table stayed with lighter stuff – starting off with a couple of rounds of Tsuro, which I haven't otherwise had out this year.

I won the first game, when the other three players indulged in mutual annihilation, but lost the second.

Then we moved on to Captain Sonar, with four players; we played the turn-based version to get the hang of it, and pretty much did, though there are points I need to emphasise more in my rules explanation.

Finally Grifters, where I thought I was doing reasonably well until I discovered that one of the other players had me comprehensively beaten. Oh well. But the players got the hang of it quickly and seemed to enjoy it.

We finished just about as Rococo was ending.

There are likely to be extra mid-month sessions, though I doubt I'll make them; I'm too likely to be committed elsewhere.

[Buy Tsuro at Amazon] [Buy Captain Sonar at Amazon] [Buy Grifters at Amazon] and help support the blog.
