Marlow Tabletop and Board Games 6 May 2019 09 May 2019

This Meetup-based boardgames group continues to meet at the Marlow Donkey. (Pictures from new shinyphone in "HDR" mode.)

We started with seven-player Saboteur, with some excellent bluffing and, I think, the first time I've ever had a "map" card while playing this game. This is one of those games I'm happy to play when it comes out, but I feel no particular urge to own.

We split, and I played Star Realms: Frontiers, the first time I've had it out for more than two players. We used the Hunter variant (you can only attack the player on your left), and I did a lousy job of faction specialisation (my usual weakness, going for short-term benefits) and got knocked out first. Still, this is a game I've been meaning to introduce to the group for a while, and the other players enjoyed it.

Over on the other side, they played Ticket to Ride: Europe, followed by 6 Nimmt!.

Then we all got back together for a few rounds of Concept before the pub closed. (No photos; it was too much chaotic fun.)
