Marlow Tabletop and Board Games 5 March 2018 09 March 2018

This Meetup-based boardgames group continues to meet at the Marlow Donkey.

We started with seven of us playing Unstable Unicorns, which seemed to combine a fair bit of Exploding Kittens and a little bit of Fluxx and Munchkin. Not really my favourite games, and this won't be either, but it was OK as a one-off.

We split into two groups, and I played Sagrada – third play, second last-place finish. There was something about that first game that just worked perfectly for me, and now I have to slog at getting it back.

Some of the other players are determined to help with my 52 game challenge, so we played Marrakech ("a game with fabric") at which I did remarkably badly.

Oddly, though, I won at Autumn (another 52-game-challenge game, this one qualifying for "a game from a BGG design contest"), which in some ways has quite similar mechanics; I think I saw a key play just in time. Wouldn't mind giving this another go some time.

On the other side of the room, they were playing 7 Wonders

and Codenames.

We finished off with a few hands of Red7, and one of the others joined us for the last game.
