Marlow Tabletop and Board Games 7 May 2018 09 May 2018

This Meetup-based boardgames group continues to meet at the Marlow Donkey. This time five of us turned up at the end of a long bank holiday.

I had the 2016 edition of Robo Rally with me, and we ended up playing that. First the very basic introductory game, as several of us hadn't played before.

Then we went on to Dodge This, a tight single-board course with lots of collision opportunities. At one point I think we had four out of five robots rebooting in the same turn, three of them in the same phase.

It was a close race to the finish, and a remarkably intense experience. I haven't tried that course before, but it's certainly going to be one of my regulars now…
