Intercalary Games in June 25 June 2022

We went out scouting for a pub for the local Meetup group, and found one: and it's a McMullen house, which means the AK mild is a regular thing.

But having got there it would have been rude not to play some games, so we did, starting with Ganz Schön Clever: the pens were failing as pens do, but I think we all felt this is one we've left out of regular play for too long. (Even if it is at its best with two.)

Then Forbidden Island, using an alternative island setup with a chokepoint – which might have been quite bad, but as it turned out all four treasure spots could be found at range 1 or 2 from the exit, so we gave them priority and let the rest go. I don't suppose this is anyone's favourite game these days but it's still enjoyable to revisit occasionally.

And finally a round of Red7; I still don't love the special card powers, but in the basic game it's light and great fun.
