Marlow Tabletop and Board Games 21 May 2018 05 June 2018

This Meetup-based boardgames group continues to meet at the Marlow Donkey. This time four of us turned up (I think we're getting into the spring illness season).

We started with Illimat, a full game that ended up taking four rounds. I had an excellent last round, and ended up losing by a single point. I'm still very fond of this game, which has a strong visual appeal as well as being decent to play.

We went on with Splendor, yet another game I don't play as often as I'd like. And it showed; I'm fairly rusty, though things seemed to be coming together eventually (just a little too late).

(Photos from new shinyphone, which is good for sharpness, but has a shallow depth of field and no manual white balance mode.)

[Buy Splendor at Amazon] and help support the blog.
