Marlow Tabletop and Board Games 1 July 2019 06 July 2019

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

We started with Skull, a good short game while waiting for people to turn up. It seems very shallow, until you realise how much you have to play the other players. (And I won.)

Since there were just four of us this time, we went on Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn, which isn't really well suited to the pub setting – but it seemed to work. (Even if I did get knocked out first. I like playing it, but I seem to be quite bad at it. I should probably try some different Phoenixborn and find a style that suits me.)

[Buy Skull at Amazon] [Buy Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn at Amazon] and help support the blog.
